Here are some other highlights and headlines that I noticed over at Ransom Notes Radio:

One Gitmo detainee is being released because he took up Yoga. Another is being released because he “has a positive attitude”. Another is being released because he’s planning to build a Milk and Honey Farm. (What the heck is that?) It’s nice to see that the world will soon have an influx of happy, productive, well-adjusted terrorists… (NY Post)

Since the NSA scandal broke open, other nations don’t trust American companies that much… In completely unrelated news: Google is developing a new software that will remotely access your camera, microphone and Bluetooth in an effort to let other people know whether or not you’re around. (Full body chills.) (Androidpolice)

According to a new study, 70 percent of college graduates are not financially self-sufficient. That’s right: 70 percent depend on their parents, friends, or credit cards to keep from financially drowning… This is what happens when people borrow $30,000 for a degree in anthropological feminism (I’m just assuming this is really a thing). (Yahoo Finance)

Wow… This is a shock: After Obama granted de-facto amnesty to young illegal immigrants, the border was soon overrun by… wait for it... young illegal immigrants. And, of course, the President has promised to provide these young immigrants with legal counsel. Because, ya know, federal immigration laws are really more like guidelines anyway. (NY Times)

More Democrats are giving up on Obama… Or depending on how you view it, they’re finally realizing that he’s just fulfilling his campaign pledge: “Hope and Change.” Here they are, in Barack Obama's second term, hoping for change. Well played, Mr. Obama. Well played. (National Journal)
