Mike's Blog Round Up

Outside the Beltway: The CDC’s honor-system mask guidelines risks turning American businesses into the vaccination police.

Pharyngula: This foe of “Grievance Studies” proclaims it is time for “full-scale ideological warfare against the enemies of Western civilization.”

Mock, Paper, Scissors: Republicans message to America? Better red and dead, just as long as black and brown can’t vote.

Zandar Versus the Stupid: If voters under age 40 don’t reproduce their record 2020 turnout in 2022 and 2024, Democrats are in big trouble.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
" In 2008, 18-to-29-year-olds made up 18% and those 65-plus made up 16%. Young people actually outvoted old people. This year, the young cohort was down to 11%, and the seniors were up to a whopping 23% of the electorate. That's a 24-point flip.” (Michael Tomasky, November 7, 2010)
