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.

The biggest reason that Senate Majority Leader [score]Mitch McConnell[/score] (R-KY) won’t allow President Obama’s next Supreme Court nominee to come up for a vote in the Senate?

Donald Trump just promised to defund Planned Parenthood if/when he’s elected president!
Obama finally cut something from the budget… so-called “abstinence only” sex education.
While young people like Senator “Bernie” [score]Bernard Sanders[/score] (I-VT), older folks have the experience to understand why he’s terrible.
“Christian socialism” is necessarily anti-Christian.
