Happy July 4th, America! Happy Independence Day!
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.
So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Saturday, July 4, 2015.

Hispanic leaders are asking the GOP Presidential candidate to voice their displeasure and disagreement with Donald Trump’s comments about illegal immigrants.
“The time has come for the candidates to distance themselves from Trump and call his comments what they are: ludicrous, baseless and insulting,” said Alfonso Aguilar, a Republican who leads the American Principles Project’s Latino Partnership. “Sadly, it hurts the party with Hispanic voters. It’s a level of idiocy I haven’t seen in a long time.”
At a campaign event in Iowa Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told a member of the crowd that he was “not your candidate. I don’t want you to vote for me. I couldn’t disagree with you more.”
Rick Perry attacks the GOP for lacking “moral legitimacy” with African-Americans, but he also believes the time has come for “black families to hold” Democrats accountable for destroying their economy.
The WORST agreement in U.S. Diplomatic history? The Iran deal.
Is the Internet really running out of room?
