So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Thursday November 21, 2013.

Okay – so let’s start off with a pair of terrifying stories being reported on by ABC. The FBI has apparently learned that we might have let dozens of terrorists into the country as “refugees.” Which stinks, because we are the nation who takes in people from the worst of life’s situations and we should be… but this might make us take in less people who need our help. That is sad. Along with learning that we may have inadvertently given terrorists a free pass onto our soil – the FBI has video of some of these men working with heavy weapons in KENTUCKY. What are they doing in Kentucky?

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) says that there is no reason to worry about another shutdown in January. The GOP will not push for more spending cuts in their next budget compromise. There goes the GOP laying down for the Democrats… again.

President Obama wants everyone to know that the Obamacare fiasco is mostly the Republicans fault. What? Doesn’t that make sense?

Speaking of Obamacare, Megan McArdle has a piece in Bloomberg news today that informs us that the repeal of Obamacare is actually becoming MORE plausible, not less, as time goes on.

New York City is at it again. Helping to stop you from making bad decisions before you even decide to, the city has banned the sale of cigarettes to anyone under the age of 21. What would the poor adults of NYC do without their government to tell them what they can and cannot do? They are so lucky. (Said dripping with contempt.)

In Albuquerque, New Mexico voters have decided that they’d like to be allowed to murder babies as long as they can. The voted against a bill banning late term abortions.
