News the Mainstream Anchors Neglected to Mention

Unless you're plugged in to the alternative media, you missed these interesting news items:

* Those New TSA Uniforms: They hassle law-abiding citizens while demonstrating alarming ineffectiveness in keeping weapons and the bad guys off planes...but they're sure gonna' look cool.

Under their new collective bargaining agreement, Transportation Security Administration officers get to spend more taxpayer money on their uniforms every year than a United States Marine Corps lieutenant can spend in a lifetime.

TSA employees will see their uniform allowances nearly double to $446 per year,” the House Transportation Committee noted in a press release on the TSA’s new collective bargaining agreement.  “By comparison, a combat Marine Lieutenant receives a one-time uniform allowance of $400.  The cost of the increase in TSA uniform allowance is an estimated $9.63 million annually.”

Latest example: Yale hosted its annual sex conference in which bestiality was apparently labeled merely one form of “sexual diversity.”

* Forbes List Of Top 10 Cities For Good Jobs Dominated By Texas:

Four Texas cities (Dallas, Houston, Austin and Forth Worth) nailed down the top spots with San Antonio coming in at Number 6. (all of the ten, by the way, were cities way west of the Missouri River: Seattle, Oklahoma City, Denver, San Francisco, and Salt Lake City.

* It Turns Out That Team Obama, Led by the President Himself, Told a Lot of Scary Sequester Fibs: Americans for Prosperity gives a rundown of just a few in its article, "Sequester Hysteria vs. Reality."

* For Barack Obama, It's All About Destroying the Opposition:

Barack Obama has absolutely no intention of working with the GOP for the next two years despite any words to the contrary. Obama recently met with Congressional leaders for a grand total of one hour. Obama has spent the rest of his time berating Republicans all over the country.
