So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Tuesday January 14, 2014.

Hey! How about that recovery? Apparently half of the counties in the United States still find themselves in a recession.

A recent report says that all of that spying the NSA has been doing on American citizens hasn’t actually made us any safer. “Our investigation found that bulk collection of American phone metadata has had no discernible impact on preventing acts of terrorism and only the most marginal of impacts on preventing terrorist-related activity, such as fundraising for a terrorist group.”

Bailing out the insurance companies has been built into the Obamacare scheme since the beginning. “Obamacare is almost certain to cause insurance costs to skyrocket even higher than it already has, “insurers won’t be losing a lot of sleep over it.”  How can this be?  Because insurance companies won’t bear the cost of their own losses—at least not more than about a quarter of them.  The other three-quarters will be borne by American taxpayers.”

The Spanish language Obamacare web portal is so bad that Spanish speakers can’t understand what they’re reading!

The Department of Energy is going to begin monitoring how much energy you’re using to power your home.

It looks like Chris Christie (R-NJ) might have bigger problems than Bridgegate in his near future. The Federal government is investigating how New Jersey used the funds they got to rebuild after Superstorm Sandy.

CNN tells us that Al-Qaeda controls more Arab land than ever before. Then they bury the story.

Egypt is not paying any attention to the Obama administration. Wow, that’s surprising. (He said sarcastically.)

West Virginia’s water problems are not over yet.

Apparently, the Pope is Catholic.
