What We’re Reading August 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 Tuesday August 19, 2014.

Wow. Well this is a switch…now the good people of Iraq are wondering where we are? Now that ISIS has conquered nearly 1/3 of the country and are threatening the rest, the Iraqi people and their lawmakers seem to want our military back in their country!

Great Britain plans to step up their role in helping the people of Iraq, even though it probably means sticking around for a while.

Maybe Republicans aren’t as homophobic as liberals like to pretend? It seems like most Republicans are perfectly content to have a homosexual working as their representative.

Young people today may be more liberal socially, but that doesn’t mean they’ve become more liberal economically, as a new Reason-Rupe study has found.

Is Senator Al Franken (D-MN) in trouble?

NBA Legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar proves that Ferguson isn’t really about systemic racism, but then falls for the canard that America discriminates against the poor.

Are we doing enough to protect our nation from Ebola?

Here’s a warning for internet users… don’t take anything you read on the web as gospel – check it out before you decide to repeat it.
