“The real problem is not that we are different, nor that we disagree and have conflict. It's that most of us automatically view conflict as something negative rather than as a tool God can use to help us better understand ourselves and one another.

--Robert Ricciardelli”

01/19 Morning Report

The crowing has begun in earnest. Social barriers could be broken in 2008 election. In their continued rush to get a socialist agenda totally established in government, the media is doing all it can to distract the people from the real issues. A fear of government by conservatives will end up ushering in a different kind of rulership. (…I hope people wake up to themselves before it is too late…)

The Democrats are still working on getting their “resolution” passed. Among other things, it bases conducting a war on public opinion. With our fickle society and short term agenda on everything from the stock market to our attention spans, we are going to base foreign policy on it now? I could say a lot more, but I think Chickenhawk wrote one better than I could have thought up.

On the subject of useless government, normally, I would classify this as a frivolous lawsuit. But, since the police refuse to do anything about it, I’m with the shop owner—except for the damages part. Suing homeless people for millions is way over the top.

In most communist socialist countries, the Parliamentary body becomes a rubber stamp operation. One more piece of evidence to that in Venezuala is Chavez new power to rule by decree. Does anyone really believe he will give it up in 18 months? Seriously believe?

In more strange news today, a court convicted a right wing government leader of "disputing a crime against humanity". The official was denying, or at least questioning, the gassing of Jews during the Holocaust. Even so, who thought up a cockamamie charge like that? (…well, it did happen in France…maybe we should give the benefit of the doubt…nnnaaahhhh…)
