Weekend link dump for July 13

Same-sex marriage may soon be the law of the land, but you can still be fired for being gay, and you can still be discriminated against in a lot of other ways, too.

Ted Cruz lies every time he opens his mouth. This is not a surprise.

Want more Frozen? It’s on your teevee this fall.

In other news, Bigfoot still doesn’t exist.

“In the future, regulators may be less willing to seek compromise lest their efforts be similarly used against them — and it is bad news for all of us if health policy can be made only through polarization and rancor rather than compromise.”

“I can think of another reason a craft store might oppose birth control: Non-procreative sex is the enemy of crafting. Who would latch hook if they could be having sex?”

“149 rare Bob Dylan demos found in boxes marked ‘Old Records'”.

“It seems almost pointless to mention this but there is simply no state Democratic party in any of the 50 states that is so clearly, obviously demented. This is the Republican Party. Yuval Levin and Ramesh Ponnuru are not. In fact, I think all those bold conservative thinkers of whom the New York Times thinks so much should bring their Big Ideas down to the next Texas state Republican convention and see how far they get. John Boehner, and Mitch McConnell, and especially obvious anagram Reince Priebus, who nominally presides over Bedlam, need to be asked every day which parts of the Texas Republican platform they support and which parts they don’t.” This is true of Greg Abbott too, of course.

The love letters of President Warren Harding, who was Anthony Weiner before Twitter and cellphones, will soon be on display.

RIP, Eduard Shevardnadze, former Soviet official and president of the republic of Georgia.

“People profess doubt about climate science not because of any rational evidence about the fallibility of science, but because it’s in their interests to do so.”

How Seinfeld changed television, for better and worse.

“There is nothing inherently inconsistent between religion and living our lives freely as LGBT people. We do not need to settle for a law that has a loophole this large, that will embolden our opposition and that has the potential to curb our progress on other federal, state, and local laws protecting LGBT people and their families.”

Quantifying the most shocking result in World Cup history.

Is mass deportation worth $200 billion plus to you?

The main differences in the Colorado and Washington pot markets.

You only think you wiped all your data off your Android phone.

“Geraghty supported the idea that we should devote $2 trillion and thousands of lives to invading and occupying Iraq to bring them freedom. But that was different, of course: We got to kill people. Also we didn’t have to hang around with them. Huddled masses yearning to breathe free are the worst!”

“We have gone from learning that the law has failed to cover anybody to learning it would cover a couple million to learning it would cover a few million to learning that it has probably insured fewer than 20 million people halfway through year one. The message of every individual dispatch is a confident prediction of the hated enemy’s demise, yet the terms described in each, taken together, tell the story of retreat.”

What does it mean to be an “employer”?

Happy tenth anniversary to the Comics Curmudgeon!

“Disgraceful. No wonder dinosaurs became extinct. Sickos like this kill every last one of them as soon as they are discovered. He should be in prison.”

“If the fertilized egg in the female American citizen is of more value to you than the Guatemalan child who has just crossed the border illegally…”

RIP, Eileen Ford, founder of Ford Models.

One hundred years of babe Ruth.
