What We’re Reading July 24, 2013

We hope you’re having a great Wednesday 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 24, 2013.

Detroit’s bankruptcy is back on track, even though an Obama appointee tried to stop it citing her belief that the bankruptcy was “not honoring to Obama.”

Facebook says it “made a mistake” when it blocked Christian actor and activist kirk Cameron and his huge following from publicizing his upcoming movie “Unstoppable.” Is it just me or are these mistakes happening more frequently and only to conservatives? Here’s the Unstoppable trailer – go see it when it comes out and support Mr. Cameron and Christian filmmakers everywhere!

Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) hits the nail on the head when he calls an Obama advisor a, ““demagogic, self-serving, political hack.” Nice.

The planned shipment of F-16’s to Egypt has hit a snag… hopefully those planes never get shipped.

bigotsThe media has a double standard when it comes to bigotry – real or conceived – that’s the only explanation as to why some people still have their jobs.

Pedophiles want the same rights as homosexuals and they’ll be using the same arguments to try and get their way.

This was a terrible day at the beach.
