So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Wednesday November 20, 2013.

Yesterday was the 150th Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address – we remembered it here.

A couple of months removed from all the shutdown drama, the National Journal wonders, “Did the shutdown even matter?”

Welcome to Obamacare in Washington, D.C. Some health plans cover elective abortion but not hearing aids. Makes total sense, right?

The Obama administration is very upset with the state of Oregon. It seems that the good people in the Beaver state can’t be bothered to sign up for Obamacare. Not a single Oregonian has signed up for the national healthcare scheme yet.

President Obama couldn’t be bothered to be at Gettysburg for the 150th Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address because “of that whole website thing.” Seriously?

There is still NO EVIDENCE that the NSA sweeping domestic spying program, that completely infringes on every American’s natural God-given rights, has actually done anything to protect us.

Speaking of the government violating our rights – some drivers in North Texas near the Fort Worth area were stopped at roadblocks and asked for breath, saliva and blood samples. Hello, 1984.

Whoops! Republican congressman Trey Radel (R-FL) was arrested for cocaine possession.

Virginia State Senator Creigh Deeds (D-VA) was severely injured Monday night when he was stabbed in his Virginia home. Police believe that his son, who died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, was his attacker. We at Eagle Rising are praying for Mr. Deeds and his family in what must be the worst days of their lives.

The Department of Homeland Security still hasn’t fired the racist employee who called for the mass murder of whites.

The terrifying spread of “the knockout game” has law enforcement all over the country worried.

Are women fighting a cold war against each other?
