Here’s What We’re Reading Wednesday February 19, 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 Wednesday February 19, 2014.

Pray for the people of the Ukraine – last night their capital city of Kiev was set ablaze amidst a tumult of violence. More than 20 people died in fighting between the government and protesters.

The Congressional Budget Office says that raising minimum wage to $10.10 would eliminate more than 500,000 jobs by 2016. No word yet if the Obama administration believes this to be a GOOD thing. For it’s part the White House is saying that the CBO actually has no idea what it’s talking about!

Democrats are still in massive denial about Obamacare – the healthcare law is poison and it will destroy Democrat chances in 2014.

The changing face of Christian politics.

A conservative icon, Thomas Sowell, takes a look at new conservative firebrand Ted Cruz and finds that he is hurting his own cause.

Somebody finally says what EVERYONE else is thinking – Ice Dancing is not a sport.
