What We’re Reading October 3, 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 October 3, 2013.

Lastly, he admitted that the NSA had been scouring through social networking sites reading the information being put out there by average, everyday Americans… he did say that they weren’t compiling dossiers on each of us… yet.

9 out of 10 IRS agents have been furloughed due to the government shutdown, but there are still about 1.5 million agents hard at work. What are they doing? The IRS is still collecting debt during the shutdown, but they are not giving any refunds until the shutdown ends.

The National Park Service ordered the closure of a park that the NPS pays no money to operate.tomclancy

Don’t believe in biased media? The three major networks ran 21 stories about the government shutdown and in each one they blamed the Republican Party for the shutdown. Not a single story gave any blame to the Democrat majority in the Senate or the Democrat President in the White House.
