Tattoos, not ring; credit cost shifts

Thinking Right’s weekend free-for-all. Pick a topic:

  • Jermaine Dupri is committed enough to Janet Jackson to tattoo her image along his lower right side from chest to waist — but they’re not committed enough to marry. Such is our culture.
  • No need to waterboard Joe Biden. If he knows, you know. Real torture’s when he’s forced to remain silent. Where’s the doomsday bunker, Joe?
  • Juvenile Court Judge Sammy Jones was the judge you’d want on the case whether you were the crime’s victim or the errant youth’s parents. Straight up and a top-notch guy.
  • So Atlanta’s finances look good when compared to Detroit; New York; Philadelphia; Chicago; Kansas City, Mo.; Los Angeles and Phoenix, all of which have larger deficits percentagewise? But we don’t live there. New slogan suggestion for Atlanta: “It’s not our fault.”
  • Evidence that Georgia’s low-and-fair-tax approach to business creates jobs is contained in a new nationwide study. Georgia led all states in new business startups last year and has had the greatest increase over the past decade. Low taxes and fair treatment work every time.
  • Holy cow! Georgia State University eliminated 300 positions — and student classes aren’t affected. Only 30 of the jobs are filled. The rest are part-timers, temps and student assistants. One concludes that it’s games or overstaffing.
  • Surely this new school superintendent in Clayton County has been hired to take the system to “the next level.” Or if not, he’s got to be a “change agent.” All new hires are these days. But if we’re lucky, he’ll be just a guy who improves outcomes without lots of drama.
  • What do balloons, campaign finance reform and credit card reform have in common? Squeeze in one place and air, campaign money or card fees move elsewhere. Card-holders who pay on time are likely victims of the cost-shifting.
  • Atlanta Municipal Court has 11 judges. Three are considering retirement. Since 2002, caseloads have dropped 50 percent. The chief judge thinks seven can handle the work. Councilman C.T. Martin goes bonkers. Atlanta’s a jobs factory.
  • An alternative exists to government-run health care. Conservative Republicans have offered it. It would redirect $300 billion in subsidies from employer-provided insurance to give families $5,700 per year to buy it and to fund health savings accounts. The poor would get a supplement of up to $5,000. I’m betting there’s a liberal who will argue that people can’t be trusted to make such important decisions.
  • Want a pickup about the size of a John Deere Gator utility vehicle? Sit tight. President Barack Obama orders his car companies and others to achieve an average of 351/2 miles per gallon by 2016. That’s 39 m.p.g. for cars and 30 m.p.g. for pick-ups. An Associated Press-quoted auto consultant thinks the changes “will make pickup trucks so much more expensive that they will be used almost exclusively for work.” Vehicle prices will be up by a minimum of $1,300. And, yes, with medication you can sleep comfortably at night knowing that your child is out driving, probably too fast, in a wheeled box of tin.
  • Almost half — 46 percent to be exact — of the 2,800 people who responded to the Web question, “How would you describe President Obama’s political philosophy?” posed by Richard Viguerie’s ConservativeHQ.com answered “Socialist.” Another 24 percent said Marxist, 11 percent Communist, 10 percent fascist and 5 percent liberal. I’d be in the 5 percent. Not scientific, of course, and Viguerie would draw a particular segment of conservatives, but it does reveal how polarized we’ve become.
  • The state’s turning taxpayers’ van pool business over to the private sector, though we’ll continue subsidies. The old rule still applies: If you can find the service in the Yellow Pages, government shouldn’t provide it.
  • Think schools don’t color young minds politically? A seventh-grader writes that the class project is to write a letter to the editor giving their view “on the destruction of ecosystems” by “construction companies building more malls for our expanding population.” How about a class-project essay on whether, environmentally, it’s better to build one 1,000-megawatt power plant fired with natural gas on 40 acres or 500 windmills spread over 30,000 acres? Or, make the plant coal-fired. Invite children to think.
  • Obama’s Gitmo policy was beginning to look an awful lot like Bush and Cheney’s, to my delight and liberals’ horror, until he proposed bringing bad guys here. Congress should stop that.

You know Jim when it comes to higher CAFE standards you and the slowminded Repubs ALWAYS short change American inventiveness, ingenuity, and scientific know how. Instead of encouraging higher mileage on autos and trucks you are stuck in the 1980’s. Meanwhile Japan, and soon China, will continue to clean our automotive clocks. We have listened to you and your antiquated thinking and look at where Detroit is today. No, Jim, the future, and future jobs are in more efficient, cleaner, higher mileage vehicles and they can be built in the USA if only you and your dinosaur friends in the elephant party would get out of the way.

And also, Jim, if you knew anything about economics, but if you were educated in GA 10-15 years ago I am sure economics was not on your radar, the current financial mess has been brewing since Ronald Reagan tried to sell the supply side economics farce, and every Repub administration after has done the same. Jim, it don’t work. Let me repeat, it don’t work. And it don’t work because the same Repbubs who want to run that failed policy just cannot cut the spending side. So what do you have, not enough revenue. Any corporate genius can tell you to be profitable you need to take in more money than you spend, period. We have only had a very few years over the last 50 where the government has had a surplus. So, when it comes to deficits, your party has never had a solution just as you claim the Dems havn’t either. So your arrogance about budgeting is also a failure. Tax and spend does not work nor does tax and borrow. The only solution is balanced or surplus budgets, nothing more and nothing less.

Health care tax break doesn’t help at all if you can’t buy insurance. The Rep plan to allow me to choose my plan doesn’t work if I have a pre-existing condition that denies me insurance. Free market with choices? What a joke.

So the Republican plan gives the currently uninsured about half the amount needed to buy a minimal-coverage family health insurance policy. And where does the money come from? Why, it’s from taxing employed workers’ health insurance premiums, along with the portion paid by their employers. That’s a great way to get rid of health insurance that’s currently offered by employers, who will see the full amount of what they pay for employees’ health insurance coverage subject to tax. Pretty soon we can all be out there, desperately scouring the economic landscape for health insurance policies with $10,000 deductibles and 50% co-pays.

Starting right below his armpit, which appeared to be infested with Jamaican dreadlocks, was a rendering of a saintly appearing Janet jackson. Her inked wardrobe appeared to be functioning correctly and it was quite a sight to behold. Unfortunately, for others to see this lovely depiction of this terrific non-talent, Mr. Dupri will have to be sans shirt and showin’ his nasty draws. Let’s demand that the police crack down on this illustrated munchkin! Keep your clothes on Jermaine! Nobody wants to see you in yo nakedness and Janet Jackson jus’ using you cuz.

Conservative Republicans have proposed shifting more of the burden for of indigent care to the middle class. By proposing a direct tax on employee health care the Republicans have found an additional $300 billion to support Walmart’s efforts to keep the cost of Chinese import artificially low. It qualifies as a double whammy as health care is one of the great achievements of organized labor in post WWII America…

Or could it be that every owner of a pickup truck and a lawnmower can “create” a business in an economy that basically consists of nothing more than building houses willy nilly. And some of these guys are very creative when it comes to AVOIDING taxes. What are the figures for this year Jim? How high has the unemployment rate climbed. You are a master when it comes to picking cherries Jim. Also, how about detailing for us some of the reasons that Charlotte is becoming a much more desirable location for new business than Georgia. Could it be choking traffic created by the bubba plan when it comes to transportation here in the peach state? Could it be that Charlotte has rapid light rail that services the downtown business types and runs all the way to the technology triangle. Of course not in the mind of Jim Wooten and the troglodytes that populate our State House. A Governor named Sonny to ice the cake too. Yep.

We entered God’s House of Prayer on Sunday just in the nick of time to hear the choir director whisper to the choir in cadence, one, and a two, and a three, and a four, He’s an on time God, Yes He is, Ooooooooh, on time God, Yes He is, Job said he may not come when you want Him, but He’ll be there right on time, I tell you he’s an on time God, Yes He is… You can ask the Children of Israel, trapped at the Red Sea, by that mean old pharaoh, and a his army, They had water all around them, and pharaoh on their track, but from out of nowhere, God stepped in, and there was a highway just like that, Let me tell you he’s an on time God, yes he is, Ooooooooh on time God, yes he is, Job said he may not come when you want him, but he’ll be there right on time, I tell you he’s an on time God, yes he is…

Just as the song neared its end, an old man walked gingerly across a make-shift pulpit to deliver the Gospel of Jesus Christ. His face showed signs of betrayal, rebuke, and scorn. And among his adversaries were apostate Christians and the so-called educated integrationist Negroes and their minions who follow the dictates of Saul Olinski i.e. agitate, agitate, agitate to cause turmoil in society… But as the old servant of God delivered his message, the congregation was energized and overcome with praise. They shouted repeatedly, hallelujah, glory to the highest, glory be to God, praise God! And in the midst of it all, the old man’s still small voice was heard saying, He’s an on time God, Yes He is. We believe he’s an on time God, yes he is. Now he may not come when you want him, but he’ll be there right on time. He’s an on time God, yes he is.

Let those who worship God in spirit and in truth say he’s an on time God, oh yes, he’s on time…

We have worked too hard to allow some so-called educated integrationist Negro miscreants to disrupt our progress. If the so-called educated integrationist Negroes had built institutions instead of begging others for acceptance, they wouldn’t have time to protest or contest every mole-hill occurring within white institutions.

Hi Jim….quick thought on your medical insurance comment. If, in order for this proposal to work, the government will be subsidizing it, then is that really a free market solution? If the government provided everyone a subsidy of $1000 a year for transportation, how would you view that?

The bottom line on medical insurance is this: premiums = profit and claims = loss. Business are incentivized to minimize loss, which in this case means minimizing claims. That means cherry picking healthy people, rejecting their claims when they make them, and then fighting them in court…which is cheaper because they’re lawyers and their customers are sick and not up to the fight.

How could that possibly be effective?

I think we need to have a Memorial Day for America as we used to know her. The libs are destroying this country right under our noses and rebuilding it in their vision: one of statism, socialist indoctrination, and pure equality for all – no rich, no poor.

Now, when the libs at abcnews.com start bedwetting over PrezBo & co. and doing things without the DNC media, you KNOW something is wrong.

“On April 27, President Obama welcomed the University of Connecticut Lady Huskies, who had just won the NCAA women’s basketball championship.A fter the event, President Obama went to the White House basketball court to shoot hoop with the Lady Huskies. The White House press corps was not allowed to attend.”

Of course, when dealing with libs, you have to have the ubiquitous hypocrisy alert:

“It’s perfectly fine, of course, for the White House to put out its own version of events…”

Um, actually that WASN’T okay by you libs for the Bush administration to do it, whiners. But anyway, back to the lib bedwetting:

“But is it right to do so by preventing actual reporters from covering something? (Even something like a pickup basketball game). Do Obama White House officials think their media coverage isn’t flattering enough? Is the goal to ultimately replace the pesky photographers who film what they want to and not what they’re told to (not to mention the annoying reporters who ask uncomfortable questions about, say, detainee policy and bank bailouts)? Do you want your OTV?”

Laughable. What are you people whining about? You people elected this current from of incompetents in Washington. Further, those dimolibs don’t quite know what liberties are (free press, free speech [against the demolibs], freedom from government intervention, government control in the private sector, potential salary caps in businesses that never took bailout funds, cap-n-trade, etc.).

How can we know that the Creator, in temporal matters, is punctual? We know not God’s schedule, but we know our hurt. Even St. Thos.
