Link round-up for 12 June 2016

Check out these shaded streets.

He Is Risen.

This may be the most colorful animal in the world.

Watch this kid, he's going places.

Hmm, maybe the Mulder/Scully shippers were right?

This may be the best Hillary endorsement yet.  Oh, and she's not the first to use the motto "Stronger Together".

Trump's losing the toilet paper poll.  And Trumpanzees stink at propaganda.

Old books can be intriguing -- I wonder about those hobbies.

Pictures don't lie, but they can be misleading.

Which airline is this?  I want to fly them!  Maybe they go to these destinations?

Bisexuality exists -- it really does.

Here are some words we could use (from commenter Blurber).  We need a word for "humane" that doesn't imply "human".

Iowa's Governor wants to promote Christianity by making it a nuisance.  Well, Christians are being persecuted.

Paintings take us through the North American Purgatory.

The Windows 10 scandal just gets worse (found via Clarissa).

The Bible is a long book, so here's the essential summary.

Capitalists create wealth.....

Some rapists are more equal than others.  And sometimes American justice is just a travesty.

It's a beautiful sight, the repudiation of evil.

Too many Americans work while they're sick.

Beware this slimy bank.

Republicans protect women, sometimes.

Here's how the fundies are bungling the culture wars (found via Republic of Gilead -- yes, he's back to posting).  On trans issues, they're repeating the same mistakes they made with gays.

The real Mexico is nothing like the wingnuts imagine it (found via Progressive Eruptions).

A candidate of the British Green party spreads anti-Semitism.

British Christians adjust to a post-Christian nation.  Europeans are finding other uses for their unneeded churches.

99 lashes for.....attending a graduation party?

Today is gay pride parade day in Kiev, and certain people object.  Let's hope it goes better than last year.  The wingnuts in that region of the world even hate vegans.

Marriage in China is.....different.

Syrian refugees should give this a try.

This is barbarism.

Blast effects cause a strange form of brain damage which could account for PTSD (found via Earth-Bound Misfit).

Was agriculture a mistake?  Actually, no (found via Fair and Unbalanced).

Here's the most important reason why Hillary has to win.  And here are five things you didn't know about her.

Green Eagle translates Trump's tepid speech.

The race is swinging our way, though many undecideds remain.  It will fluctuate, but keep your eye on the big picture.

If you're a leftist who thinks a Trump victory would "wake people up", you need to read this.

"To minority voters, Trump’s candidacy feels like an existential threat."  And though it's a lower-profile issue, he's a menace to LGBT people as well.

Listen to David Neiwert and Tengrain.

There's a reason for Trump's "crooked Hillary" epithet.

"They are waging war against whites, which represent the goodness of America."

Trump's business strategy has included not paying his bills.

Here's what the rest of the wingnuts have been up to.

Buzzfeed decides it doesn't want Republican money that comes with Trump attached.  Mexican judge, Pocahontas, what will he say next?  Here's why the party probably won't ditch him at the convention.

While speculation swirls around Warren as a possible VP, Trump's process flounders.

Don't pander to freaks.  (That's what the Republicans did, and look what happened.)

My favorite right-wing forum is starting a series on Trump's racism.  They call it Fourth Reich Watch.

Cthulhu's Oklahoma followers must be overjoyed!

The galaxy crayfish is lovely. What a beautiful shell!

Bored Panda had some truly magnificent shaded walkways. I wish I saw more walkways like that in my area.

I'm so glad that airlines are catering to the magic-using population, which spends millions of dollars on air fare each year. Will they hand out free bags of eye-of-newt on flights along with snacks?

North American fast food joints and sterile shopping venues are so soulless and dreary that they might as well be purgatory. How can one feel a sense of place or community in those bland places?

Jesse Lee Peterson is a piece of work, both on gender and race. I shudder at the thought that someone, somewhere takes him seriously.

whatever whimsy I felt this morning is gone, replaced by anger and dread.

Over what happened in Orlando last night.

It's officially up to 50 dead, making it the deadliest mass shooting in American history.

Worse than Sandy Hook. Worse than San Bernardino. Worse than the Long Island rail shooting in 1993. Worse than Virginia Tech. Worse than 100,000 other mass shootings we all seem to live with because the NRA wants to fucking worship their guns.

Screw building a time machine to go back to save JFK or Anne Frank. Build a time machine so we can go back to 1787 and convince the Founders to fucking not write that goddamn Second Amendment.

Paul: Of course there must be tea.

Ahab: That "Cthulhu" photo is a heck of a lot more convincing than any of the Jesus-on-toast apparitions I've seen. Who knows?

The tree-shaded streets make quite a contrast with the North American Purgatory.

On the mass murder in Orlando, see my post above.
