Afternoon Reading List 09.04.13.

Steak: It’s Bill Clinton’s favorite vegan dish  Charles C. Johnson of The Daily Caller gets the coveted Ken Starr medal for today, after he caught Bill “Slick Willy” Clinton in one of his historical lies.  According to Johnson, Bill Clinton has claimed to be a vegan since 2009 when he first started having heart trouble, and has also gone on to profess to the masses the importance of becoming vegan for the personal health and well-being of ourselves, and for the health of our country.  As it turns out, however, it’s all been a big, fat, bean-eating lie.  Clinton not only eats salmon and eggs once a week, he’s also been known to enjoy a filet mignon here and there and in Madrid.

Why you should read it: Because those who fail to learn from the mistakes of the past are doomed to repeat them.  Just as I was about to begin my new vegan diet, I find out that everything Clinton told me about veganism that made me want to switch was just a crock of lies.  Check out the article and see all the ways Clinton is full of meat, dairy, fish, and crap!

Geraldo Rivera YOLO’s too hard for the students:  This morning, FNC’s Geraldo Rivera reportedly cancelled his upcoming university visit. A HuffPost update to an article posted yesterday regarding the fall-out of a shameless selfie of Rivera half-nude in a towel, says he was unaware of the cancellation of his appearance at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh on the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination until a stranger in a hotel bar introduced himself as a panelist for the event and informed Rivera of the change in plans.

Why you should read this article: It’s got Geraldo Rivera with a towel around his waist, and in so few words, proves to be a terrific lesson in keeping all the creepy pics of one’s personal life hidden and buried under about 14 different application folders on their computer.  Just as the old saying that I just came up with goes, “Don’t be a Geraldo, hide the photos you took while yelling #YOLO!”

War, hmph!  Good God, y’all…! 

Do you and your fellow citizens support war? Find out!:  In The Atlantic today, their global editor Olga Khazan highlights the 5 main points that indicate whether or not Americans have a rendezvous with destiny, and what factors will influence whether war will be declared. In a nutshell, the 5 points are: 1) Congress’ partisan makeup 2) People following political elite when they rally for war 3) Regular people do listen to NATO and the UN 4) Veterans are less likely to support intervention than non-vets and 5) There’d be fewer military interventions if it were solely up to Congress.

Why you should read this article: There’s a disclaimer before the article really dives into the 5 points, saying the issue is very large and complex, and that this list isn’t comprehensive.  However, it is still a good read for anyone wishing to better understand the current state of mind in regards to the American public and U.S. intervention in Syria.
