Mike's Blog Round Up

So the government is listening to your phone calls and monitoring your Internet use – and pretty much has the authority to track your every move. Just remember that everything the state did in Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four was legal too. It's just Ingsoc by a different name now, the shining city upon a hill become dystopian national security state. Call it Amfasc.

Prairie Weather: The IRS loves conservative groups.

Infidel753: Balancing principle and compromise.

The Smithian: Motherhood, single women, and poverty.

Simply Left Behind: Take me out to the PED-juiced ballgame.

Pruning Shears: Anti-fracking activism in Ohio.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction (Twitter: @mjwstickings). I'll be here through Sunday.
