What We’re Reading August 21, 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 Thursday August 21, 2014.

Have you noticed how quiet the politicians around America are being about the Ferguson debacle? Interesting, no?

Left-wing teacher groups launched a sexist crusade against education advocate Campbell Brown.

Here’s a terrifying fact for you to think on…  there are more British Muslims fighting with Islamist militants in the Middle East than there are in the British armed forces.
