June FDH Lounge News Nuggets
By Rick Morris
We’re adapting a segment that we have used on our show repeatedly in order to try to highlight some of the more intriguing news headlines going today. We have also posted links here for geopolitical headlines in the past and we’ll work this into this theme. Much like The FDH Lounge itself, we’ll try to keep it broad-based as far as what is catching our eye.
^ From National Journal, Edward Snowden’s revelations won’t change much about how much privacy we have – or don’t have, as the case may be.
^ From Real Clear Technology, how a stupid technicality in the law caused Pandora to buy a tiny FM radio station in South Dakota.
^ From Politico, religious conservatives are fearful of a sellout on pro-life principles by the GOP.
^ From the Raleigh News & Observer, trying to decipher any possible upside to US involvement in the Syrian civil war.^ From the Sydney Morning Herald, how Australia’s Prime Minister not only risks losing her party’s majority this year, but how she may be replaced before then by a prior prime minister from her party – the man she herself deposed.
