Saturday Morning Reads
As usual, I’m posting links to stories that caught my eye over the last week that you may have missed.
I came across this one this morning at The Washington Monthly about the Huffington Post helping a lobbyist for big business spread his word.
And this is a MUST READ for anyone coming to this blog. Karoli lays out why President Obama deserves our support and takes on the people who like to call us Obots or Obamabots or whatever other childish name the adolescents on the internet like to use. Go READ NOW!
A congressmen from my great state of Michigan, Rep. Sander Levin, penned this opinion piece about why Republicans don’t give a shit about the jobless.
Republicans continue to sabotage the economy for their political gains. They want control again really bad and will go to great lengths. All the more reason why we need everyone helping to fight against them and elect Democrats.
Eclectablog has a lot of great stories about the assault on democracy in Michigan, go over there and get caught up. This is serious business, folks.
And contrary to all the crappy reporting going on, we are not at war with Libya and President Obama isn’t doing anything different than any other president. But of course, that doesn’t stop people from lying and exaggerating.
From our awesome commenter grantinhouston, a story about a lawsuit against the Emergency Manager law in Michigan.
And last but not least, you gotta love @vdaze for penning this new Urban Dictionary definition. “Gone Hamsher”
