What We’re Reading September 12, 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 Thursday September 12, 2013.

Slate Magazine may have the best one-line attack of President Obama’s foreign policy. “If your foreign policy has to be rescued by a dictator, you are doing it wrong.” That sounds pretty logical, actually.

Oh by the way… we can’t prove the Assad government is to blame for the chemical weapons attack.

Al-Qaeda and other jihadist groups are gaining strength in the ranks of the Syrian rebels, while the moderate groups seem to be losing ground.

Vladimir Putin took to the pages of the New York Times to speak directly to us, the American people, about the war in Syria. He got more than a bit condescending… even while mixing in a few good points. However, he’s still an anti-democracy douchebag… so I say, Go Back to Russia Vlad. We’ll take care of our crappy President by ourselves. The White House was not impressed with Mr. Putin’s op-ed. Senator Bob Menendez felt sick to his stomach after reading the piece… that’s funny I usually get sick when reading about Bob Menendez!

2millionbikers2The “Million Muslim March” was all hype and no substance. Only a handful of folks came out for the event. The 2 Million Biker Ride was much more productive and well attended.

The Governor of Missouri vetoed an overwhelmingly popular gun rights bill that the legislature had recently passed. Will the Governor find his job in jeopardy in the next election?

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood demands that Egyptian Christians convert, or be forced to pay a tax.

Ain’t no such thing as live and let live liberals.

Another public school proves its bias. A student was not allowed to write about god in her assignment.
