Believe Obama or ‘lying eyes?’

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

● Ah, the free press. There’s nothing like it. Lay out the obtainable information that points to wrongdoing by public officials, and a free people will act — as they have in DeKalb County. Former school Superintendent Crawford Lewis, former chief operating officer Patricia Reid and her former husband and her secretary have been indicted on various corruption charges related to school contracts. Kudos to AJC reporters Megan Matteucci, Tim Eberly and others who have pursued the scandal for months. Next to murder and armed robbery, the most detestable crimes are white-collar and public trust violations.

● State Rep. Tom Graves of Ranger, one of the candidates in a runoff to succeed Nathan Deal in Congress, has collected more than $300,000 from Club for Growth members determined to elect fiscal conservatives to Congress. His opponent, State Sen. Lee Hawkins of Gainesville, collects $107,000 from dentists outside Georgia. If transparent and voluntary, it’s no big deal. If House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had serious competition, I’d cheerfully give to her opponent. Free speech. Now if the contributions are being made without donor approval, that’s another matter.

● “Who are you going to believe, me, or your lying eyes?” asked Groucho Marx. President Obama told us that health care revision — which, incidentally, 63 percent of Americans want repealed — would be a cost-saver. The lying eyes of benefits experts at 661 companies read the legislation otherwise. Fully 94 percent, according to a Towers Watson study, say the law will raise their costs; 88 percent intend to pass increased costs on to employees and 74 percent expect reduced health benefits and programs. Obama or their lying eyes?

● You have to admire the restraint of Gwinnett Superior Court Judge Michael Clark. He found a term — “not unlawful” — to apply to the executive branch decision to divide the county into five zones and to charge $321 in advance for 18 months of garbage service. Since county officials had not put the service out for bids and had not established a clear process for selecting those given territorial franchises, it was “not necessarily unlawful, arbitrary or capricious.” Admirable judicial restraint, and a clear signal to Gwinnett taxpayers to force county government into the sunshine.

● “I need training,” explains DeKalb County State Court Judge Barbara Mobley. “I’ve only been on the bench five years.” What’s the big deal? Tab for three of those years: $25,000, twice that of her peers, to attend conferences in Jamaica, Panama and the Virgin Islands. Five years ago she should have acknowledged that she did not think herself qualified and would not be for years to come. Judges can bone up on their bench work in Athens. Athens as in Georgia.

● Campaign barbecues, once a staple of Georgia politics, have largely lost their luster and appeal. A great exception, though, is the Walton County Republican Party’s, held last Monday at Roy Roberts’ farm near Monroe. Most all the biggies running statewide were there, including Georgia’s next governor. U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson thinks it may be the state’s best political barbecue event.

● Propose a transportation sales tax increase, as Georgia legislators have done, and the visionaries spending other peoples’ money start planning monuments, and costly ones at that. Cobb County commissioners have given the county’s transportation director authority to try to sell a 14-mile light-rail line, projected to cost at least $2 billion, running from the Galleria to Town Center near Kennesaw. Please. Fix the bottlenecks. Make traffic move. Put the money where it produces the greatest benefit to the most people.

Do you always attack other bloggers who don’t attack you first? I’ve read through the entire comment section and nowhere did anyone attack you until you attacked and accused another blogger of being someone else. When people accuse others of doing something, they usually have evidence. In your case, you’ve called someone a racist, stupid and accused them of being someone else. To me and other sane people, it says that you are an irrational person in search of attention. I’m not sure if your parents don’t give you enough attention or what, but you do need to calm down and act like a grown up. Everyone is entitled to their opinions but you have gone beyond simple opinions and resorted to childishness.

“Why always so much concern about Black people but never the White majority ills?”

Answer: Because white people work for a living.

Question: Are you saying that black people aren’t working for their living?? Are you believing in what the media such as FoxNews persistently presents as truth?? What about those black people who are serving in the military….or as policemen…or as firemen….or bank tellers….or computer programmers??? Are you not evident of this fact???

HDB, I was simply poking fun at the poster who wrote that black people are victims… I get sick of hearing how white people are racist etc… The race card is a worn out trick with no legs to stand on.

“Are you believing in what the media such as FoxNews persistently presents as truth??”

What does Fox News have to do with anything I’ve stated?

“What about those black people who are serving in the military….or as policemen…or as firemen….or bank tellers….or computer programmers???”

What about them?

“Are you not evident of this fact???”

That question makes no sense.

HDB

I’m not sure what point you’re trying to make here. You bring up Fox News which has absolutely nothing to do with race. Considering Fox employs both black, white, hispanic etc…. I don’t see your point. Are you anti-Fox news? If so, maybe you’ve heard of something called “choice.” You see, in a capitalist country, people are free to chose what they watch and read. Also, if you want to argue race etc I’d be more than happy to debate white and black.

White people don’t sit around all day thinking up ways to keep black people down.

Make sense?

What’s interesting is the fact the the DNC employs a former klansman. ROBERT BYRD!!!!! Yet people like you and Tucker say absolutely nothing about that.

“THE OBAMASPILL”

When “The Obamaspill” first occurred, Obama should have utilized every means possible to stop the massive oil ecological disaster. Obama was very busy at that time planning how to shove his next piece of Marxist Change down our throats so he was super slow in his response! Precious time was lost while Obama slouched! In the year of our lord “1993″, the Saudi’s used super tankers to clean up their massive 1993 Persian gulf oil spill with great results. The tankers sucked up the Saudi oil while it was still out at sea and removed it. Now The Gulf Of Mexico oil is destroying our beaches and marshes. Obama could have stopped it before it got to the shoreline by mobilizing those super tankers. As I said the Saudi’s did it 17 years ago! “The Obamaspill” is the worst oil spill the USA has ever had! It is sad for the Gulf Of Mexico, Planet Earth, & us that Obama was so indecisive on this catastrophe of Biblical proportions! ………………………………………………………………………………………………..
………………………………………………………………………………………..
THE SAUDI PERSIAN GULF OIL SPILL:

(May 14) — Even as proposals pour in for cleaning up the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, one veteran of a massive (and secret) crude spill in the Persian Gulf says he has a tried-and-true solution.

Now if only the people who could make it happen would return his calls.

“No one’s listening,” says Nick Pozzi, who was an engineer with Saudi Aramco in the Middle East when he says an accident there in 1993 generated a spill far larger than anything the United States has ever seen.

Eric Gay, AP
A shrimp boat collects oil with booms in the waters of Chandeleur Sound, La., on May 5. An engineer who witnessed a crude spill in the Persian Gulf in 1993 says BP should use a fleet of empty supertankers to suck crude off the water’s surface.

According to Pozzi, that mishap, kept under wraps for close to two decades and first reported by Esquire, dumped nearly 800 million gallons of oil into the Persian Gulf, which would make it more than 70 times the size of the Exxon Valdez spill.

But remarkably, by employing a fleet of empty supertankers to suck crude off the water’s surface, Pozzi’s team was not only able to clean up the spill, but also salvage 85 percent of the oil, he says.

“We took null out of the water so it would save the environment off the Arabian Gulf, and then we put it into tanks until we could figure out how to clean it,” he told AOL News.

While BP, the oil giant at the center of the oil spill, works to stanch the leak from the sunken Deepwater Horizon rig, Pozzi insists the company should be following his lead.

Did anyone know that Barack Obama is scheming to take total control the internet as well as muzzle any voice that dares to disagree with him. Think Not! Read!
Disturbing audio has emerged of White House information czar Cass Sunstein, who in a previous white paper called for banning “conspiracy theories,” demanding that websites be mandated by law to link to opposing information or that pop ups containing government propaganda be forcibly included on political blogs.

In an audio excerpt of an interview, Sunstein discusses how conservative websites should provide links to liberal websites and vice versa or even how political blogs should be made to include pop ups that show “a quick argument for a competing view”.

Sunstein said that if this system couldn’t be implemented voluntarily, “Congress should hold hearings about mandates,” which would legally force people to dilute their own free speech. The Harvard Professor also said that blogs should be forced to list a random draw of 25 popular websites, such as CNN.com.
