Mike's Blog Round Up
July 8, 2017

Alright, that's it for me this week. Thanks for reading and clicking. See you next time.

Keep up the pressure on the feeble-minded Orange Turd, which has very much been my focus this week, but let's not forget that much of the damage is being done by McConnell and Ryan and their ilk, leading a malignant party that is not just turning a blind eye to treason and unconstitutionality but also seeking to impose its extremist, plutocratic right-wing ideology on the country, and of course it is health care where the major battle is being waged now. I so admire the commitment and activism that has emerged in 2017 to fight back against this anti-American effort, and now is no time to let up – quite the contrary.

Seeing the Forest: Is there truly legitimate governance in America?

Liberal England: Does Theresa May really have no regrets?

We Move to Canada: Are detective novels studies in power and class?

And, alas:

There's fascism in Canada, too?

Yes. And we must fight it here as well, as it must be fought everywhere, all the time.
