What We’re Reading February 17, 2014

We hope you’re having a great day wherever you are and that the news we dig up for you this morning helps you navigate the day more efficiently!

It’s a busy world out there, and you don’t have a ton of free time to be doing Internet searches for the most important items of the day… lucky for you, we do. We drink gallons of coffee in an effort to stay awake long enough to scour the far reaches of the world wide web in an effort to bring you the most important, useful and useless information every single day.

You’re welcome.

So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Monday February 17, 2014.

GroupOn takes trolling to an all new spectacular level with their latest deal.

“Groupon Celebrates Presidents Day by Honoring Alexander Hamilton,” its latest press release blares. “Starting tomorrow, Groupon will be kicking off Presidents Day weekend by giving customers 10 dollars off 40 dollars when they purchase a deal for any local business.”

And then comes the money quote:

The $10 bill, as everyone knows, features President Alexander Hamilton — undeniably one of our greatest presidents and most widely recognized for establishing the country’s financial system.”

Obamacare patients with preexisting conditions could pay a lot more for the drugs they need. Another area that is about to become more expensive, all because of the effects of Obamacare, hospital stays are about to see a spike in costs. Oh, and by the way… ADHD DOESN’T EXIST.

Workers at the Volkswagen plant in Tennessee recently voted not to unionize – to the surprise of President Obama and other liberals. Folks here in the south understand why the plant workers wouldn’t jump to unionize though.

Where, in fact, does the UAW in general, among other places, put its money? In the 2013-14 campaign cycle so far, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, it has given $71,901 to Democrat candidates and zero, zip, nada to Republican candidates.

In the 2012 cycle, it gave $1,427,731 to Democrat candidates and $45,053 in efforts against Republican candidates. Republican candidates, meanwhile, got nothing.

VW workers, that would be your money.

The “Party of Science” doesn’t actually care or know anything about science.

It’s a Brave New World and the Feds want to track your DNA the way they’ve been tracking your license plates.
