We hope you’re having a great Thursday 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 Thursday July 25, 2013.
The House vote on Representative Justin Amash’s bill to curb NSA funding and draw back on their abilities to monitor our electronic traffic failed by 7 Republican votes.

This is the man who wants to send Dick Durbin (D-IL) into retirement. If you’ve got the extra cash handy he could use the help.
Another day, another activist judge halting a state passed abortion restriction. Why do we keep letting the Left do this to us? We win referendums, we elect officials who pass laws restricting abortion, and then all of our hard work gets undone by a liberal cloaked in judge’s garb.
Marco Rubio (R-FL) is looking to lead the fight to restrict abortion in the Senate. He says he’s up to the task to get the tougher laws passed… I guess we’ll see.
The majority of Americans want the border secured before the government considers amnesty.
The President’s message on jobs is a “big nothingburger.”
Recovery? What recovery? For every “new job” two more people go on food stamps. Thanks President Obama.
Former President George H.W. Bush shows solidarity with a young boy and his family in a sweet way.
Google is looking to make it easier to watch your computer on your TV. Thank you Google for a whole new way to waste time.
A couple of football stars are going to race a cheetah. Yep. Awesome.
