Mike's Blog Round Up

Okay, that's it for me. See you again soon. Come visit us over at my place, where we continue to track the GOP's ongoing descent into ever more destructive degrees of madness (not least when it comes to Wall Street.)

Darrel Plant: Federal government set to change metric by which poverty is measured (to the detriment of the poor).

Where's the Outrage?: The GDP has doubled since 1980, with gains going to the wealthy.

Perrspectives: Romney's tax cuts would mean huge windfall for the Romneys (and the Koch brothers).

Thump and Whip: Wingnuts don't get Lisa Jackson's humour and respond (because she's not white) with racism.

And a review of Takashi Miike's 13 Assassins, one of the best films released in the U.S. this year, an homage to the greatest of all films (in my view), Kurosawa's Seven Samurai.
