02/03 Morning Report

If there was ever a brilliant example of why the MSM needs to have some oversight, John had two great posts here and here on what an unrestrained media can spew out—and still manage to call truth. The media watches over government. The media watches over business. The media watches over schools. The media, not the people, gets to decide what is right or wrong. And, we the people accept it because we are told the “majority” accept this opinion.
(…does anyone realize only 1-2% of America is gay…why does the media ascribe so much political clout to that group?…why do we believe it?…now, go re-read what Arkin said and tell me it’s truth…)

In New Orleans, a federal judge has decided it’s now…well, sometimes…OK to sue government agencies when things go wrong. Aside from the argument that this will cost millions, it also opens the door for all kinds of legal efforts—good and bad.
(…seems to me there a Bible passage of a day when no one will want to be in charge…this would definitely move things in that direction…)

Meanwhile, the world made one more small step towards popular control of science, one giant leap towards the New World Order.

Fear of runaway global warming pushed 46 countries to line up Saturday behind France’s appeal for a new environmental body that could single out – and perhaps police – nations that abuse the Earth.

I don’t have a problem with conservation efforts in themselves. But, adjusting science to fit political realities and the religious aspects of earth worship really hacks me off. Perri Nelson has a good write up on this, and links, too. Better yet, do a Google search for yourself and read both sides.
(…unfortunately, there is a lot of momentum behind this… and most people tend to believe what they read in the media…)

With fighting going on at ministry buildings, schools, and even security buildings, it doesn’t look like Fatah and Hamas will settle their differences easily. Given the gap between them, it isn’t a big surprise. Friday’s truce announcement has gone the way of all the others—though perhaps more short lived. Given the opportunity to govern themselves, the two sides appear to just want to blow everything up in order to have their own way.
(…and people think it’s still all due to the presence of the Israelis…it couldn’t be just because Islam is a violent religion…could it?…)

But, the US has apparently chosen sides in Gaza. There are reports the US will be…

Providing non-lethal equipment and training to units of Abbas’s National Security Forces, and possibly the Jordan-based Badr Brigade could increase Washington’s role in the power struggle between Abbas’s Fatah faction and the governing Hamas movement.

(…I wonder what the Israelis think of that…)
