Here are your top news headlines from Newsy.

 

Rather than focus on real budgetary fixes, the House this week passed a way -- sarcastically -- for Americans to donate to the Treasury in order to reduce the nation’s deficit.

Republicans are calling this an alternative to Warren Buffet’s call to tax the rich.  Here’s C-SPAN.

 

“House Bill 6410 reduces the public debt by $135 million over 10 years. It makes it easy for those who want to donate money to the treasury for debt reduction to voluntarily do so without raising taxes on entrepreneurs and job creators.”

 

Mitt Romney continued to pound the issue of redistribution and dependence on government.

On the campaign trail he said, his dad grew up poor and his dad’s family got government help to get back on their feet. Here’s the speech from CNN.

 

“That’s the way America works. We have big hearts.  We care for people who have needs. We help people, we help get ‘em back, we help lift ‘em up.  But then we don’t make that a permanent lifestyle, we don’t have that become government dependence.”

 

France has increased security at 20 of its embassies, mostly in the Arab world, after the publication of cartoons of the prophet Muhammad in a French satirical magazine.

Euronews reports on the fracas which has ensued.

 

“In France we can draw caricatures of anyone we want, says the editor of the French religion is like philosophy... 

“It’s provocation.  Charlie Hebda wants to make money out of Muslims.”

 

A handful of thrill seekers in Southern California did NOT get the ride of their lives.

Instead, they were suspended 300 feet in the air on an amusement park -- for four hours.

Here’s the BBC.

 

“The ride malfunctions. This is the second time in two weeks this has happened. This is called the Wind Seeker.  Thrill-seekers got on the ride because it swings them at a 45 degree angle, 300 feet in the air for a minute.”

 

Four hours later, all the riders were back on terra firma safe and sound, with quite a story to tell.
