What We’re Reading August 9, 2013

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 Friday August 9, 2013.

A new day dawns and finds us running away from al-Qaeda in yet another country. Our government has pulled diplomats from our embassy in Pakistan because of threats made by the evil terrorist group that we once thought was all but beaten.

So it seems the Islamofascist terrorists in Egypt are using guns supplied by America to fight the more secular leaning interim government.

Governor-Chris-Christies-war-on-gunsSpeaking of arming terrorists… New Jersey Governor Chris Christie continues to pass laws restricting the rights of gun owners in the Garden State. The man hates guns, unless we’re giving them to terrorist…er, rebels. I don’t think you could find a Republican Governor who was more anti-gun than Christie.

Hey remember those “phony” scandals? Jay Carney’s not to sure what to make of CNN’s bombshell reporting on the Benghazi mess. Oh… and if you thought the IRS persecution of conservatives had stopped… you would be wrong.

With news that Planned Parenthood is being investigated for fraudulent use of taxpayer dollars, we have word of a recent pro-life protest in front of ABC headquarters over perceived censorship in abortion reporting.

alecHispanics lean towards Democrats by a 2-1 margin. It could be worse African Americans lean Democrat by a 9-1 margin.

Oh by the way… Obamacare will cripple charitable hospitals for being charitable.

Republican voters are not happy. The mood really does remind me of the Tea Party summer… it would be nice to see that kind of energy again in 2014 (and 2016).

Wanna hear something ridiculous? MSNBC is giving raging anger management case study, Alec Baldwin, his own show. Hilarity will ensue…

Really Pakistan? Can’t a guy just have awesome facial hair? Not everything should spark a fatwa.
