Cool down with a fan and iced tea

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

  • I agree with President Barack Obama. What? No lightning strikes me down? On his nomination of U.S. District Court Judge Beverly Martin to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, we are in agreement. She is, as he said, “a first rate jurist with unflagging integrity and evenhandedness.”
  • More worries for taxpayers and their grandchildren: The government agency that pays the pensions of 44 million workers who were employed in failed businesses reports a deficit of $33.5 billion, triple the deficit reported six months ago.
  • More worries, too, for the kiddies: By 2030, the number of U.S. residents over 65 will jump from 13 percent to 20 percent. The world’s elderly population is growing at twice the rate of the general population, reports the D.C.-based Center for Strategic and International Studies. Hide the piggy banks. Congress plans a stick-up.
  • Change gushes through Washington and creeps through Georgia. But, still, it’s a grand day for education reform when the state’s Charter Schools Commission approves its first two schools — Ivy Preparatory Academy of Norcross and Charter Conservatory for Liberal Arts and Technology in Statesboro. The important new element is that both schools get state funds equal to the local share.
  • In the spirit of good liberals everywhere in public office, eight members of Atlanta City Council agonize, wring their hands and “step up to the plate” to face the prospect that politicians want to spend $541 million and are $56 million shy. Cut? No. They raise taxes by an average of $240 per homeowner. And then and forever more, beg for a state bailout. It’s not their fault.
  • Within hours of winning the Miss Georgia crown, Kristina Higgins of Duluth decided she’d rather teach special education. Admirable. But unfair to the second-place finisher, Emily Cook, who gets the hand-me-down crown. Some things in life can’t be anticipated. Winning a contest you’ve entered can be.
  • President Obama may not have been too quick to react to the Russian invasion of the Republic of Georgia or the bogus election in Iran, but he’s on top of the situation in Honduras, where the elected president was deposed for trying to thwart the Constitution. He’s either a slow study or fast to firmness on international affairs that don’t much affect our national security.
  • The reaction to the discrimination against firefighters who scored highest on promotion exams in New Haven, Conn., and then saw the city yank promotions because whites scored disproportionately higher, is as expected. It’s contained in one AJC headline: “Written tests may lose favor.” When test results don’t yield the results desired, get rid of them so the discrimination can be hidden. That’s the rule of bureaucrats and politicians who want to cheat legally.
  • Bad news for conservatives. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pushed through a monstrosity of hidden taxes in the cap-and-trade legislation with the help of eight Republicans from blue states. In the Senate, the Dems are on the verge of having a filibuster-proof majority, with the arrival of comedian Al Franken from Minnesota. And, of course, they can always count on two or three Republican crossovers. Not good for containing the Obama over-reach.
  • Some politicians are overexposed while in office. Former Gainesville Mayor Mark Musselwhite was overexposed after he left. A Department of Natural Resources ranger found him sitting naked in the summer heat at a Rabun County campsite. Ice tea and a funeral home fan would have been my recommendations.
  • President Obama says the energy tax bill that passed the House with too little attention on the day that Michael Jackson died will cost the average American about the price of a postage stamp per day. Everybody who believes that has probably already spent the children’s inheritance on Billy Mays’ infomercials.

Obozo would never pass up a chance to flex his scrawny foreign policy muscles, especially with some tiny country that has no missiles to aim at us.

Not good for containing the Obama over-reach.

You seem to have forgotten about 2010, the midterm elections, opinion polls and the way liberals worship them.

When they get a look see at the numbers “cap and tax” and health care are garnering, you count on at least 10 democrats bailing on Obozo.

President Obama says the energy tax bill that passed the House with too little attention on the day that Michael Jackson died will cost the average American about the price of a postage stamp per day.

Obozo bin Biden also said if we passed Porkulus, the unemployment numbers would not go higher than 8%.

They are now at 9.4%

Unlike Mary Staley who nominated herself for federal judge twice and whose only experience in a federal courtroom was the school field trip she took as a child, Beverly Martin has considerable federal litigation experience and judicial experience as a trial judge in NDG. Staley has none.

•More worries for taxpayers and their grandchildren: The government agency that pays the pensions of 44 million workers who were employed in failed businesses reports a deficit of $33.5 billion, triple the deficit reported six months ago.

This came from the Bush administration’s 96 months.

•President Obama may not have been too quick to react to the Russian invasion of the Republic of Georgia or the bogus election in Iran, but he’s on top of the situation in Honduras, where the elected president was deposed for trying to thwart the Constitution. He’s either a slow study or fast to firmness on international affairs that don’t much affect our national security.

And President Wooten’s precise reaction to Iran would be exactly what? Mouth off like Lindsay Graham? And Wooten’s explanation of why and how Bush let Iran and North Korea go nuclear by doing nothing and leaving zero CIA assets in Iran according to Bob Baer the CIA section chief in the Middle East for years is precisely what? That’s what I thought. All mud slinging but no plan.

The only move in Iran is to get CIA assets in and prod the work force to begin a work stoppage. Any Lindsay Grahamesque Trash talk doesn’t do a fooking thing and Wooten knows that.

You won’t see Woooten write a detailed Iran response prescription column the way he tries to write detailed articles on parenting or educational finance in Georgia because he doesn’t have a clue what to do in Iran or North Korea. Bush did nothing for 8 years and as in everyother field left Obama with nearly insoluble problems.

Wooten wants to fly a bomber into Iran perhaps and Bomb all the fundamentalists and spare the portion of the under 28 age group that is 60% of their population by dropping a fundamentalist specific nuclear bomb perhaps? Wooten wants to drop bunker bombs that will destroy their nuclear program in a place the size of Texas? What precisely is Wooten prepared to do in Iran? Wooten’s been totally quiet about his plan because he doesn’t have a clue. Last time I checked Honduras wasn’t allowed by Bush to go nuclear over 8 years, but Iran was.

Written tests are what Georgia school children can’t pass when compared to other states. Georgia is 47-49 since Wooten was in grade school. It never changes.

All we know about that opinion in the 2nd circuit is that it was decided by a panel with no judge signing it and an 8 sentence statement saying there would be no written opinion and that the vote upheld precedent in the 2nd circuit which is precisely what they are supposed to do. It’s impact on Sotomayor taking her seat at the private conference come October 19 is zip over zero. Her hearing will be a non event just as the ones for Alito and Roberts were.
y
Sotamayor will say next to nothing and no one on SJC will be able to do a thing about it just as with Alito and Roberts. The hearings are dog and pony shows and a waste of time. Congratulations to the newest Senate Judiciary Committee member taking his seat on arguably the most powerful committee in the Senate, Senator Franken. The vote in the judiciary committee won’t be close either. Democrats have a dramatic 12-7 advantage in membership.

Independents poll in favor of Sotomayor. Those are one of the many groups that don’t vote Republican and help them lose.

Cap and Trade had over 100 Republitard pork pieces of crap in it. It was a crap bill and has nothing to do with the way Wooten portrays it listenining to Faux news and Mark Levin non-stop and then parotting what they say. Wooten has not read the bill which is a total joke becancause the Blue Dog Dems and Republicans ran it into the ground with their pork.

In the stage-managed event, questions for Obama came from a live audience selected by the White House and the college, and from Internet questions chosen by the administration’s new-media team.

The president called randomly on three audience members. All turned out to be members of groups with close ties to his administration: the Service Employees International Union, Health Care for America Now, and Organizing for America, which is a part of the Democratic National Committee. White House officials said that was a coincidence.-Washington Post

In Evansville, though, Palin concentrated on the task at hand: an emphatic defense of the anti-abortion cause. But in doing so she made a startling confession about what she thought when she learned she was pregnant at 43 with her youngest child, Trig, who arrived in April 2008, as the world now knows, with Down syndrome. “I had found out that I was pregnant while out of state first,” Palin told the crowd. “While out of state, there just for a fleeting moment, I thought, Nobody knows me here. Nobody would ever know. I thought, Wow, it is easy to think maybe of trying to change the circumstances and no one would know—no one would ever know. Then when my amniocentesis results came back, showing what they called abnormalities—oh, dear God—I knew, I had instantly an understanding, for that fleeting moment, why someone would believe it could seem possible to change those circumstances, just make it all go away, get some normalcy back in life.”

It is almost impossible not to be touched by the rawness of her confession, even if it is precisely this choice that Palin believes no other woman should ever have, not even in the case of rape or incest.

She is definitely an untreated, and in all probability irreversible Borderline personality individual which is why Palin will not see the light of day outside of Alaska running for any office.

More than once in my travels in Alaska, people brought up, without prompting, the question of Palin’s extravagant self-regard. Several told me, independently of one another, that they had consulted the definition of “narcissistic personality disorder” in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders—“a pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy”—and thought it fit her perfectly. When Trig was born, Palin wrote an e-mail letter to friends and relatives, describing the belated news of her pregnancy and detailing Trig’s condition; she wrote the e-mail not in her own name but in God’s, and signed it “Trig’s Creator, Your Heavenly Father.”

The libs exercise their Palin Derangement Syndromes, while we score points on their as-ses:

“June’s unemployment report shows a job loss of 467,000 and proves that the stimulus package is not a ‘Recovery Act,” said Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele. “With the unemployment rate now at 9.5% and continuing to rise, Americans need real solutions that help them find work – not bigger government, higher taxes, increased federal spending and an unsustainable national debt.”-WallStreetJournal

And how does Obozo make hisself useful?

President Obama called the job figures released today “sobering” but said he is “absolutely confident” that the country will recover from the recession and prosper over the longer term.

But he predicted that recovery will take a long time.

Oh, how sweet, we get to suffer for a long time, how about that?

Greetings, fellow dimwits-

I am here today to reassure you that America will once again be prosperous, many, many, many years from now. This dynamic and powerful economy will survive me and my idiotic policies, although I’m not sure how. Until then, I intend to spend every last dollar that I can find, I don’t know exactly what it will be spent on, but rest assured, I will spend it. I know you ain’t gonna spend it cause you ain’t got no job, bwahaha.

Maybe if you promise to vote democrat, I will send you a whopping 300 bucks, how can you beat that?

Anyway, if you happen to get sick or injured, be sure to take a number and, we will get to you, uh, eventually. Unless you are too old.

So turn off your air conditioners, pick up your handheld fans and settle in for the night, comfortable in the knowledge that your federal bureaucracy has got you in it’s sights, er, on it’s mind, uh, whatever.

AJC Management– can you (valleygirl like like) discuss issues rather than other commenters or are you typical of why Republicans lose. If you want to debate an issue, go for it. If you want to jerk yourself off and sling mud, I’ll be making points about political or legal issues and reacting to the goofy ideas Wooten puts forth. An example is that after hours of listening to Faux, Rush, Mnark Levin Wooten gets paid to write trash about Iran and intimate that Obama hasn’t responded correctly. However, Wooten does not have the guts to write a column focused on Iran and detail what President Wooten would do precisely since Bush left us with no assets in Iran CIA wise and after 8 years of Bush allowed them and North Korea to become nuclear bomb capable. Iran may be centrifuge capable right now, but they will get the nuclear bomb and become a middle east threat.

Apparently, the party line from the pubtards is to speak up and tell Iran to go fook itself. That will have zero impact positively for the US, but will help the Islamic fundamentlists stoke anti US sentiment in a country where 60% of the population is under 28 and a large percentage of that hates the Ayatollah’ fundamentalist theocracy anyway.

If you want to tell me what your idea precisely is to improve health care, manage Iran and North Korea, why Obama’s appellate filings have been worse civil liberties wise than Bush (I have stated my analysis) go for it. Otherwise, if you want to focus on me you’re wasting your life. Tune into 24 hours of cable TV on the Michael Jackson will fight.

If they can pass that disasterous cap-and-tax bill…fuel costs will go up so high, people will gladly step into the 4-wheel lawn mowers Obama wants everyone to drive and will scream for alternative fuels…instead of fossil fuels. Then this traitorous and evil man and his henchmen will have us where they want us…just like Europe.

“Concerned” doesn’t seem to be helping much right now, well, not helping the protesters, I mean. It is helping the terrorists, however.

I myself, and there are ways you can check this, would have air dropped some heavy weapons in to the protesters to see what the Republican Guard thought of that, there were pictures early on of the goons from the Guard running from unarmed old women, just imagine if the old women would have been brandishing a Squad Automatic Weapons.

Protests work in America because we have become squishes, the Iranians don’t see things the Al Sharpton way.

How many times does it take to chisel into a pithbrain? I know software infinitely better than you doand it’s not about spell check or the need for it. It’s about notebook and netbook keyboards who don’t have a touch modulation. Once you plug a keyboard in that you’re comfortable with, the typos vanish, and frankly I’m not bothering to spell check here. With a decent keyboard, their is rarely the need.

How many years before you are capable of discussing any political issue local or national. How ’bout that Obama replication of Bush fooking the populace as to civil liberties in court? Any ideas? Think Dawn Johnsen’ll neutralize Rahm and Craig when she’s confirmed in the next two weeks after the pubtards fail to hold her up? I heard Al Franken the newest member of Senate Judiciary has made that a top priority. But then you’d have to figure out who Dawn Johnsen is–that she blogged for 8 years about Bush being a moron, and that she and her fellow bloggers Marty Lederman from Georgetown and Dave Barron from Harvard (3 of the top constitutional law scholars in this country) will own OLC (you’d have to look up OLC just like Wooten and 1984) to join the discussion wouldn’t you?

Wake the hell up. The economy will be a huge problem for years. That’s Bush’s legacy.

If Cheney is that upset he can send his wingless turkey shooting butt over there and spell the 130,000 troops.

Iraq was never our problem. Iran was a problem and they went nuclear weapon under Bush. But hey we can yell that the Mullah’s are mean pricks for rigging an election of their puppet. We put no CIA assets in Iran for 8 years or damn few under Boy Bush but that was okay–look at Iran now.

We have ‘em just where Bush wants ‘em. We can send McCain and Graham in on a tank shaking their fists and telling them if they don’t redo the election and count each ballot we’ll nuke ‘em by August. That’s the ticket. Kick ass and take Ayatollah names. That’ll fix Iran.

Even ten years ago, if I had suggested that the majority party’s proposed bill would be withheld from the minority party two hours from the vote — and then one copy was grudgingly provided, to be shared by all 435 Representatives , you would have looked at me like I was a crazy person…….

Well that’s exactly what happened this past Friday when Congress voted on and passed the infamous HR 2454 Cap and Trade/Carbon Emissions Bill. Final vote: 219 Yea, 212 Nay. A little after 3 am on that very same day a 300 page amendment was added to the original 900+ pages. This is the longest suicide note in history and will further hasten our downward economic spiral. The Senate looks to debate it this Fall where it will likely get nowhere. Friday’s vote may have been a gift to the POTUS for the upcoming UN meeting knowing there’s little chance of it getting thru the Senate. Before Friday’s vote I made my feelings known to our Democratic Congressman. I see he voted No but I’ve no idea what his real motivation was. Some that voted Yes received calls 20:1 urging a No vote and they still voted Yes.

This is about more than just higher electricity rates. It’s a massive redistribution of wealth, further limits our freedoms all under the guise of reducing an essential trace greenhouse gas, and does next to nil for energy independence. This Manmade Global Warming/Climate Change House Of Cards is tumbling down. Every week more and more new contrary evidence is seeing the light of day. The Mainstream Media won’t report it, but this vital information is getting out to those that want honest debate on this important issue.

Looking past the Senate this Fall we have the December Copenhagen UN meeting on a new Global Warming Treaty. Remember the Kyoto Treaty? Well you ain’t seen nothing yet. I shudder to think what the U.S. delegation would love to commit us to for years or decades forward. Lastly there’s the EPA waiting in the wings to regulate all things CO2. Just this past week a leaked string of internal EPA e-mails detailed suppression of evidence that undermines the CO2 argument.

Remember Friday’s vote, because if this horror show is implemented on the American public it will blow up in our face as it has in every country this has been tried. At what cost in dollars and individual freedoms? Mark your calendar in RED, because that is the path we are heading toward. Contact your Senators and ask them if they’re prepared to defend a Yes vote for this misguided Bill. Let them know a NO Vote will ensure your support next election cycle.

Pubtards Continue to Lose

Mr. Buck you seem to have missed the 150 or so pieces of pork crap for pubtards in the albill and it didn’t seem to cross your brain that Iraq War levels of military spending will lead to far more job loss than Waxman-Markey, and have already.

You and your economic aficianados also failed to mention that the pubtards dived in and voted for TARP because they had thousands of shares of stock in the banks they voted to bail out.

Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) reported holdings between $100,000 and $250,000 in Key Bank ($2.5 billion from TARP). Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.) claimed between $15,000 and $50,000 of stock in Capital One ($3.6 billion from TARP), and another $15,000 to $50,000 in JPMorgan Chase ($25 billion from TARP). The list goes on.

In all, at least 15 senators supporting TARP have benefited financially from the program — a number that’s likely to rise. Thirteen upper-chamber lawmakers have yet to submit their financial disclosures this year.

The science for AGW isn’t settled. For me it’s got nothing to do with one party or the other. What if this makes into law and the temperature trend stays flat or declines even though CO2 concentration has increased?

Why didn’t you stop morons Bush and Paulson from throwing billions away with TARP?

Aahhh, yes, a lib who thinks government spending is bad, cool.

Tard- You have heard of Geithner, you know, Obozo’s Treasury Secretary?

Unlike most other Obama Cabinet picks, Geithner is tied to the decisions made by both the outgoing and the incoming administrations. From his post at the New York Federal Reserve, he played a key role in government’s efforts to aid the struggling financial markets. His was a position the Obama team argues makes him uniquely qualified to head the Treasury Department.-Politico

I’m guessing that’s why Obozo picked the guy, cause he knew how to spend the trillions.

Good morning folk,
I hesitate to comment here for fear I won’t be able to pass the spelling test set forth by 1984.

The tax increase on homeowners was enacted to protect their own,Jim,the city employees that were being forced to take unpaid furloughs.Good job Shirley.Spend Spend Spend.

Quite a mess was made trying to promote a couple of probably deserving firefighters in Conneticut.Cynthia doesn’t want one that’s smart,just one that knows how to get her out of the building.That’ll turn out to be one of the ones who passed the test, I’m thinking.

I’ll side with Kristina,Jim.She indicates that after having won the piddling little beauty contest she has more important goals in life.

I wonder how many lives and how much energy could be saved if we all sat naked to counter the summer heat?It would sure cut down on laundry bills.

Wrong on Pelosi,Jim,she’s bad news for everyone.

1984

I’m waiting for my test results.How did I do?

AJC Management, if you think health care isn’t broken, you are either a moron or…let’s face it, you’re a moron. Even the health insurance industry knows that it is broken. Because I have an insurance license, I have to take continuing education each year. This year, while taking the ethics exam, I came across an interesting paragraph that says (paraphrasing)…the reason there are so many regulatory agencies that oversee the practices of insurance companies is because the market system does not ensure that companies will “police” themselves. I am a capitalist, I am in the highest tax bracket. I have good health insurance. However, when I retire, because I am not a member of any union and my company does not pay for my insurance, I will have to pay for it myself. If I were to retire today, the costs would be over a thousand dollars a month (most people in this country cannot afford even $300/month!), but the costs, for family, is not the problem. Beause my husband has a pre-existing condition, we will not be able to get health insurance at all for him. I have worked hard my whole life. I have made all the “right” lifestyle decisions, and yet…here we are…what are my choices? There is no earthly reason why, in this country, we cannot have a single payer system. A system where everyone pays a fair share and your coverage goes with you, no matter whether you change jobs or if you lose your job. Premiums should be decided based on age groups. Ages 0-10, one premium. Ages 10-20, one premium, etc. etc. No insurance company should have the right to turn someone down because of a pre-existing condition. If you think that anyone in this country has a “choice” in their health care you are…a moron. Your health insurance company decides whom you can see. Sure, you can always pay out of pocket to keep your doctor, but then, why pay for health insurance in the first place? I voted against McCain because his only solution to the health care fiasco was to tax the health insurance premiums that corporations pay for their employees. If this were to happen, corporations would stop paying anything towards employees health insurance–which was why most large companies lobbied so heavily for McCain. So far, Obama has been fighting having to do this to pay for his system. I give him great credit for at least attempting to fix this badly broken system. So all of you nay-sayers. What solution would you have. And please do NOT say we have the best health care system in the world. If you believe that, you have not ever been seriously ill, or…you are a moron.
