Mom! Look! I'm Cleaning My Plate!

Here are some significant items from the past few days (if this thunderstorm doesn't take my system down)...
  • Paul Krugman: A Victory Against The Shadows
    "GE Capital was a quintessential example of the rise of shadow banking. In most important respects it acted like a bank; it created systemic risks very much like a bank; but it was effectively unregulated," - PK
  • Peterr at FDL: 150 Years After Appomattox, the GOP Revises Their Views
    "Consider, for example, the remarks of a rather well known Republican leader, speaking in 1865 on the eve of the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox" - Peterr
  • Katha Pollitt at The Nation: There Are No Abortion Cakes
    "If CEOs are worried that their LGBT employees won’t be treated as equals in Indiana, they should show as much concern for their pregnant and potentially pregnant employees." - KP
  • Joan McCarter at Kos: Dick Cheney: Obama is the 'worst president we've ever had'
    [For Dick, an irony lesson... obviously unlearned - SB]
  • NYT Editorial Board: A New Phase in Anti-Obama Attacks
    "It is a peculiar, but unmistakable, phenomenon: As Barack Obama’s presidency heads into its twilight, the rage of the Republican establishment toward him is growing louder, angrier and more destructive." - NYT [NFK - SB]
  • Joan McCarter at Kos: Rand Paul: America's hungry seniors should turn to charity
    [And this man would be President? - SB]
  • BlankBeat at Kos: You won't see Hillary Clinton in the same light ever again
    [As any reasonable hope of Elizabeth Warren as the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate fades, I find myself looking for legitimate justifications for voting for Hillary, which in fact I will do in preference to pitching my vote into a third-party sinkhole. This article expresses a decent and substantive reason for such a vote. - SB]
