12/31 Morning Report

December 31, 2006

Friday’s announcement that the Taleban said, “N0” to cross border talks likely came as no surprise to anyone. ”No Muslim will participate in something… created by the aggressors and puppets,” he (fugitive Taleban leader Mullah Omar) said. Holding the traditional line that no one outside of the Taleban—or other approved Islamists—shall decide what is right, […]

12/30 Morning Report

December 30, 2006

I thought this idea was a real twist on gun related litigation. I really love the idea, too. The Government should reimburse victims of violent crime because said victims could not carry arms in their own defense.(…hey…even I’ll admit that’s a reach…but it’s no crazier than a lot of left wing schemes that have succeeded…)Meanwhile, […]

12/29 Morning Report

December 29, 2006

Hello, again! Well, Christmas is over. I’ve played video games with the kids and visited friends and eaten I don’t want to think about how much food… In return, I’ve been saddled with a problem in the latest version of Mozilla Firefox. I’m still trying to get it to work right…So, I am struggling along […]

12/27 Wednesday Heroes

December 27, 2006

Every once and awhile I’ll do a Wednesday Hero that doesn’t profile a single soldier. Sometimes it’s been two or three from the same unit, sometimes it’s been an entire group of soldiers like the Navajo Code Talkers. I even did an organization once, Operation Iraqi Children. This weeks Wednesday Hero is one of those […]

Merry Christmas

December 24, 2006

Like many bloggers, I’ll be taking Christmas off. So, instead of the usual Morning Report, I thought I would share some links to people’s Christmas stories, memories, thoughts and expectations. JR shared an timeless tale at A Keyboard And A .45The denizens of Castle Argghhh had a story, too.There was a wonderful photo Op of […]

The Reindeer Quiz

December 24, 2006

You Are Blitzen Always in good spirits, you’re the reindeer who loves to party down with Santa. Why You’re Naughty: You’re always blitzed on Christmas Eve, while flying! Why You’re Nice: You mix up a mean eggnog martini. Which of Santa’s Reindeer Are You?

12/23 Morning Report

December 23, 2006

Here was my BIG surprise for the day: The 9th Circuit Court reduced the damage award in the Exxon Valdez case. I’m stunned. The most liberal court in America is letting Big Business off the hook? Well…not that it will matter all that much. Exxon won’t be getting their checkbook out any time soon on […]

Afternoon Rantings Ramblings

December 22, 2006

Want to know what gives Liberals fuel for their agenda? Conservatives who don’t follow the rules. I’ll give the benefit of the doubt to this writer. He documents all of this very well. I also know there are many instances of leftists doing exactly the same thing. So, I’m asking readers here at MWT to […]

12/22 Morning Report

December 22, 2006

How’s this for aggressive law enforcement? The crackdown on drunk drivers is the most successful, in terms of results, in the entire country. While police say the four-year-old crackdown has yielded a dramatic drop in deadly car accidents, bars and restaurants complain it is hurting business and putting a damper on Fresno’s nightlife. And defense […]

12/21 Morning Report

December 21, 2006

After more than a year of questions, AWB was suspended from Iraq contracts over oil-for-food contract corruption. But, it wasn’t the UN that disciplined AWB. It was the US.(…another shining example of the UN’s…oh…never mind…) The Hamas-Fatah truce is holding. And, as expected, refusal to give in on banking issues broke negotiations with North Korea. […]
