What We’re Reading January 20, 2014

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 Monday January 20, 2014.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

President Obama says his problem poll numbers have to do with racial issues. Disgusting, no? It couldn’t have anything to do with the horrible economy, the terrible Obamacare debacle, the nasty targeting of conservatives by the IRS, the horrendous NSA domestic spying, the horror in Benghazi, or all of the lies that have accompanied these scandals? No… it’s because you’re black? Ridiculous.

This may be the last time I ever say something positive about Democrat Senator Leahy (D-VT) so listen closely… he’s right about the NSA.

“I think that we are going to maintain our ability to protect the United States,” Leahy began. “That’s extremely important.”

“The concern everybody has is allowing our government to have such a reach into your private life, my private life, and everybody else’s, that we are, we have the government controlling us instead of us controlling the government.

“And that’s what both Republicans and Democrats are joined together on the Hill to try to change,” Leahy concluded.

Going along with that theme another Sunday talk show featured a high-ranking CIA official admitting that the NSA’s domestic spying program had allowed for “minor abuses” of our privacy rights.

Governor Chris Christie’s people are not happy with MSNBC.

2014 is looking better and better for the GOP.

Russian President, Vladimir Putin, says Russia welcomes gay Olympians… as long as they stay away from the kids.

The most recent “Bachelor” doesn’t think having a gay themed Bachelor show would be a good idea.

Democrats use MLK day to attack African-Americans.
