International news will follow shortly!
The Senate has ensured that farm subsidies will rise
In what’s being called a “compromise.”
But the rest of that bill has another side,
With billions in food stamps being denied.
But Obama is making an executive move
That should make employment odds improve:
He says that federal employers should avoid
Discriminating against the long-term unemployed.
Rallies took place in over forty states
In an effort to seal Keystone XL’s fate.
Though the State Department says the pipeline won’t hurt
Their impact assessment is a load of dirt.
Speaking of dirt, California is in a drought
That puts some areas’ water supplies in serious doubt.
And North Carolina experienced a major coal spill
Of ash and polluted water that may make people ill.
After twenty years in a Michigan jail,
A murderer decided escape would not fail.
He dug under two fences and pulled it off well,
But within a few days, he was back in a cell.
In Idaho over forty were arrested
Demanding less gender discrimination, for which they protested.
And CVS is taking a stand:
No tobacco will be sold, no matter the brand.
This week, as always, was up and down,
But remember that you choose to smile or frown.
