Celebrate the 4th of July with a collection of articles that target Republican policies and antics
Happy Birthday America. On this day of celebration, Quiet Mike would like to present to you a collection of anti-conservative articles written by our great staff over the last twelve months.
We realize that Independence Day is more than just a bad movie, it’s a day normally reserved for putting aside our differences and bringing the country together.
However, since the Republican Party doesn’t feel the need to cooperate or put their differences aside for the betterment of the country 364 days of the year, we aren’t about to give them a day off.
So if your bored or have the independence day blues, allow us to cheer you up and make you angry. Enjoy!

My son deserves props for making me aware of this site and I have enjoyed, been educated by, been challenged by, and been made even more aware of the importance of nuance by reading the articles on Quiet Mike. I would guess it targets an audience more in his age group than old guys and gals in their 60’s like me but, hey, I get tired of reading work done only by people my age or older.
Hence, your publication of this collection seems an appropriate time to compliment all of you per your work. And to thank you for keeping an old geezer interested.
Thanks Rusty. Your comment is the reason we do what we do and the reason we love to do it. Cheers!
