Whoo, longest links dump yet! Almost makes up for my dearth in blog posts this past week or two.
For anyone not paying close attention: the Gulf Oil Spill has now reached the coast and is causing damages and deaths (in addition to the damages and deaths it caused before reaching land). Thank you, Big Oil and incompetent jackasses. Way to make Exxon Valdez look like a spilled glass of milk.
So you send some angry (albeit non-threatening) letters to a jackass Senator who blocked unemployment benefits that you desperately need to be able to eat? Yeah, that’s an indictment for harassment for you.

Did anyone else nearly die laughing when they heard of this? Poor technologically-disinclined Republicans.
Oklahoma Gov. Brad “anti-abortion-bill-killing-hero” Henry vetoes yet another oppressive bill that would’ve limited abortion coverage from private insurers. As with the previous three anti-abortion bills he tried to kill, expect a swift override form the Rethuglican-controlled legislature. (Seriously, no-one should let those assholes control anything.)
As always, if you have any story suggestions, feel free to send them in.
