Around the World…and Healthcare Non-Reform?

September 14, 2009

In world news, Germany faces energy decisions that are changing power lines (pun intended).  Due to be phased out by 2022 after the Greens passed legislation in 2000, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) is trying to revamp and start construction again.  Despite the expense of building nuclear plants, they are cheap to run.  And, with […]

02/18 Morning Report

February 18, 2008

I’ve read enough science fiction that yesterday’s headline really made me smile…mostly because of the way it was worded: Hopes rise for finding alien Earths. The concept of an alien earth made me laugh. Meanwhile, closer to home, Hugo Chavez backed off of threats to halt exports to the US. Chavez had been claiming that […]

What happened to religious freedom in America? It seems to be a right for some, but not others. I’llyou’re you think I’m about to bash christian groups. I’m not. It appears that Athiests, Wiccans and Agnostics have more rights and priviledges than Christians in the military. If that’s true of the military, and it is […]

12/14 Morning Report

December 14, 2007

Tired of TV reruns? Well, it’s going to get worse. The Writer’s Guild filed a complaint with the NLRB. Nothing new. Lots of groups do this to turn up negotiation pressure. Unfortunately, it will be up to 30 days before an investigator is assigned to the case. With the main issue being streamed or downloaded […]

Hugo Chavez is making a lot of moves these days, despite having lost his referendum push at home. The Banco del Sur is slated to take the place of the IMF, which Chavez describes as a “tool of Washington.” Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela have all joined the initiative. Chile and Peru […]

12/3 Morning Report

What does the media tell you? And what does it leave out? Well, let’s consider sex education for a moment. The Associated Press reported on a study showing two-thirds of adults think giving out condoms aat school is a good thing. But, there seem to be quite a few inconsistencies in the report—and the survey. […]

11/19 Morning Report

November 19, 2007

The news from Europe is nothing new. Speaking to Kosovo, EU officials basically said independence is OK…IF…the rest of the world agrees. European Union countries on Monday urged Serbia’s breakaway Kosovo not to rush into a declaration of independence, with its backers insisting any such move should be coordinated internationally. The EU did a bad […]

11/9 Morning Report

November 9, 2007

(…be warned…today I just felt like going on a rant…I’ve been nice for too long…) It’s really sad that all the MSM can do is recognize how bad some things are. You would think, somewhere along the way, they would recognize successes. Like the report 3 days ago that IED deaths are down. Some estimates […]

05/01 Morning Report

May 1, 2007

One bright spot in the legal arena came from SCOTUS yesterday. Police officers can end dangerous chases, while protecting human life, without fear of lawsuits. It would be nice if this would cut down on the number of frivolous lawsuits in America. I’m not holding my breath mind you. We live in a culture that […]
