Mike's Blog Round Up

Daily links to great liberal blog posts...

Politico tells us that "MORE THAN 40 MILLION AMERICANS have filed for unemployment. That’s about a quarter of the American workforce, and the equivalent of the entire population of California being out of work." And on the day America surpassed 100,000 Coronavirus deaths, Prznint Stupid retweeted a video saying “the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat.” As the song says, we're feeling dangerous.

Claytoonz presents Twitter vs. Twitter, which examines Twitter's attempt to fact check Prznint Stupid.

TomDispatch compares and contrasts the Great Depression with our current Coronavirus Depression.

The Rogue Columnist compares and contrasts the Trump-Virus with the "Spanish" Influenza of 1918.

Bonus Track: Because we're all about the music, The Hood Internet gives us a year-by-year (1979—1989) 3-minute remix of more than 50 songs from each year. It's like your yearbook has a beat and you can dance to it!

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors. You can follow Tengrain on the Twitters, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with For MBRU in the subject line).
