10/05 Morning Report

October 5, 2008

I haven’t done a “sermonette” in a long time. But, I was thinking on the way home from work about something, and thought I would share it. “Mercy triumphs over judgment.” James 2:13. (…the whole verse by the way reads, “because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy […]

1/4 Morning Evening Report

January 5, 2008

I saw one little political tidbit that really caught my attention. It seems that Islamic organizations are politically pressuring the Pentagon about how they counter the war on terror. Aside from the special interest argument, do we really want special interest groups deciding how the military does it’s job? Hasn’t that been the argument against […]

11/1 Morning Report

November 1, 2007

Think the U.S. is the only country with immigration problems? Think again. British authorities have said for years that migrant workers benefit the economy. But, yeasterday’s news story on more recent information revealed: More than half of new jobs created under Labour since 1997 have gone to foreign workers, it has emerged. Among other things, […]

9/8 Morning Report

September 8, 2007

Spoiling Petraeus’s report yesterday that gains are being made, but they are in a fragile state, come the Osama video. The only surprise was unlike his 2004 video, this one lacks any threats. He made two statements, one of which has no bearing on reality. He called the killing of insurgents and terrorists who murder […]

For those who think you now what Congress or the President can and can’t do about wars, funding, deployments, and the like, you should read this article at the Christian Science Monitor. I’ll be honest, I haven’t researched this one out. So, if you know something different, please post a comment and share your source […]

7/31 Morning Report

July 31, 2007

I loved this report today over at Conservative Thoughts. And, I agree. I wouldn’t have expected it to even make print—given the leftist/anti-Republican/pro-Islamic stance of the media. Somehow, the fact that people think there might actually be something worthwhile going on in Iraq, and headway may be in progress, just never seems to make print […]

07/23 Morning Report

July 24, 2007

”Militants die”. Kind of strange way to say that. It implies that maybe the dead aren’t militants after all. Of course, the focus is all about how the terrorists (…and you now the BBC doesn’t call them terrorists…) action is because the government assaulted the Red Mosque in Islamabad on July 3. The underlying tone […]

05/09 Morning Afternoon Report

May 10, 2007

This is just really stupid. I mean, I understand the point of the law, which is to keep prices fair. But, to penalize someone for supporting the community via discounted products is really bad. Center City BP owner Raj Bhandari has been offering senior citizens a 2 cent per gallon price break and discount cards […]

05/06 Morning Report

May 6, 2007

Oh, my God! Hell is freezing over! The NY Times reports that liberal professors are changing their views on gun controlThe Liberals have said for years that the Second Amendment does not cover the individual right to have guns—only for state militias to be armed. Well, there are now several liberal professors who are changing […]
