Alexa’s Top 5 Must Reads of the Day 7/6/10


  1. Son pleads for help as mother awaits stoning in Iran CNN
  2. “Legally, it’s all over, and we have no chance. It’s a done deal. Sakine can be stoned at any minute. But we have experienced again and again that when we organize events world-wide, when we protest world-wide, and in particular when we contact European governments and these governments put pressure on the Islamic regime in Iran, sometimes we have a chance.”

    This needs more attention!!! It really makes you appreciate the rights and freedoms we have in America – including the double jeopardy rule in the 5th Amendment.

  3. Arizona Dems contest Obama’s assertions on border security
  4. The Hill

    “The crisis on America’s borders won’t be addressed with words,” said [Dem Rep.] Giffords. “I was disappointed to hear the president give short shrift to border security concerns by saying that our nation’s southern border is more secure today than at any time in the past 20 years.

    “That is not a sign of progress, it is a statement on the poor job we have done in securing the border for the past two decades.”

    Even Democrats know Obama is “just words.” Too bad the teleprompter can’t jump into action!

  5. NASA Chief: Next Frontier Better Relations With Muslim World FOXNews

    “When I became the NASA administrator — or before I became the NASA administrator — he charged me with three things…third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science … and math and engineering,” Bolden said in the interview.

    NASA = Now About Self-esteem for Arabs. BTW, he gave this interview to Al-Jazeera.

  6. Barack Obama: The great jobs killer Las Vegas Review Journal
  7. By Wayne Allyn Root

    This “community organizer” knows as much about private-sector jobs as Pamela Anderson knows about nuclear physics.

    It’s time to call Obama what he is: The Great Jobs Killer. With his massive spending and tax hikes — rewarding big government and big unions, while punishing taxpayers and business owners — Obama has killed jobs, he has killed motivation to create new jobs, he has killed the motivation to invest in new businesses, or expand old ones.

    And they call him Barak the Knife.:  With all his complaining about the economy he “inherited,” what exactly does Obama think he will leave to his own successor?

  8. The Massachusetts Health-Care ‘Train Wreck’
  9. The future of ObamaCare is unfolding here: runaway spending, price controls, even limits on care and medical licensing. WSJ

    By Joseph Rago

    As events are now unfolding, the Massachusetts plan couldn’t be a more damning indictment of ObamaCare. The state’s universal health-care prototype is growing more dysfunctional by the day, which is the inevitable result of a health system dominated by politics.

    …The deeper problem is that price controls seem to be the only way the political class can salvage a program that was supposed to reduce spending and manifestly has not. Massachusetts now has the highest average premiums in the nation.

    Read it and weep at what ObamaCare has in store for our country.
