What We’re Reading July 6, 2016

Written by Philip Hodges

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, Wednesday, July 6, 2016.

Donald Trump and the Republicans certainly aren’t the only ones outraged over the FBI’s decision not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton. Apparently, there’s still an irate group of Bernie Sanders supporters who are just as angry.

“Green” cars are supposed to be good for the environment. But it looks like they’re destroying flamingo populations. “…[M]iners sucking water out of the earth to get to the lithium are starving the long-legged birds in the process… If they keep using the same methods to extract water, the consequences will be disastrous. All forms of life will be destroyed.”

This lemonade stand just got shut down, because its operators – a 5-year-old and a 7-year-old – didn’t have a permit. “It wasn’t long after two young sisters set up shop on a grassy roadside in Ottawa that a federal officer told them to ‘pack up and leave.’”

There were over 40 reported cases of rape and sexual assault at this concert in Sweden. Most of the suspects were “foreigners.

The TSA is soon to be “automated.”

Here’s one way to deal with the Zika virus: bats. Apparently, they can devour 1,000 mosquitoes an hour.

Rudy Giuliani weighed in on the FBI deciding not to pursue Hillary Clinton. If you recall the FBI director said that there was only evidence that she was “extremely careless.” Giuliani weighed in: “Gross negligence equals extreme carelessness.” In other words, she broke the law, by definition.

Massachusetts woman offended by gun store’s sign that read “We sell ammo.” She was outraged that the store owner would put up such a “violent” sign so soon after the Orlando shooting.
