Mike's Blog Round Up

Oh, what a day this is, a day to celebrate. In 836, as I'm sure you all know, the Pactum Sicardi treaty was signed, establishing peace between Naples and Benevento, while also protecting property rights. Alas, war resumed the following year. And

Oh, what a day this is, a day to celebrate. In 836, as I'm sure you all know, the Pactum Sicardi treaty was signed, establishing peace between Naples and Benevento, while also protecting property rights. Alas, war resumed the following year. And it's been downhill ever since.

Anyway, it's good to be back...

Echidne of the Snakes: The case against DSK has apparently collapsed, but that doesn't mean we should forget his history of harassment (and worse?). Serious questions remain.

43-Ideas-Per-Minute: Conservatives think they own the 4th of July and, misplaced sense of entitlement in full swing, shamelessly use it as a marketing opportunity.

The Garlic: Looking back to Nixonland, when Roger Ailes, seeking to replace news with right-wing propaganda, dreamt up what would become Fox News.

Ramona's Voices: On Michele Bachmann, the Founding Fathers, Glenn Beck, and where gays come from.

It's not exactly a good time economically for celebrations. But, my dear Americans, have a wonderful day. Be safe, and be good to one another (and to the rest of us).

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. I'll be here all week.
