Three cheers for a selfless coach

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

● Tuesday’s wrong-way-driver crash on I-285 caused an eight-hour shutdown of a section of the interstate that handles 200,000 vehicles per day. The wreck at Dunwoody demonstrates how vulnerable metro Atlanta is to gridlock — and how the terms employed in our transportation policy debate can lead to the wrong remedies. Commuters took to off-interstate roadways, the arterials. Those are, in fact, the “alternatives” that can serve a majority of the region’s drivers. Yet when the term “alternatives” is bandied about in transportation planning, it invariably is code for a costly mass transit network that’s an “alternative” for the few who happen to be near fixed stations. Spend where we get the most congestion relief for the dollar.

● Georgia’s children are more caring than we’ve realized. Last year a high number of students in about 10 percent of the state’s schools changed answers from wrong-to-right on the state’s standardized tests. The result was a lot of nasty publicity. So this year the little fellas decided that their carelessness had reflected badly on some of their teachers and administrators. So they quit with the erasures. This year’s analysis showed that number down to 3.5 percent. Congratulations, boys and girls.

● Said the pot to the kettle: “It is my advice to you,” said State Sen. Robert Brown, D-Macon, to his GOP colleagues, “that you don’t overreach in this [redistricting] process. You might win in the short end, but you are going to lose in the long run.” It was precisely that overreaching after the 2000 census that triggered the implosion of the Democratic power structure under the Gold Dome.

● If states don’t require employers to use the federal E-Verify system, it’ll be like border security — something that the feds never get around to. States should push the feds on its failure to perform its assigned role while attempting to turn states into its administrative units on others, like Obamacare.

● Even out of office, former Vice President Dick Cheney is a comforting reminder of the value of having seasoned, experienced and wise adults in charge of American foreign policy. “Hosni Mubarak has been a good friend and ally of the United States, do not forget,” said Cheney at a celebration of the 100th birthday of Ronald Reagan. “The time comes one day or the other he must hang up and move on” and “it’s a decision only the Egyptians are able to take.”

● In my next life, I’m signing to play baseball with Wake Forest — and specifically coach Tom Walter. In surgeries performed at Emory University Hospital, the married father of two, in a stunning act of selflessness, gave a kidney to one of his players, Kevin Jordan, who needed a transplant and could not find another donor. A reason never to get cynical in life: There really are people like coach Walker.

● The greatest hypocrisy among politicians, evident in the debate about Sunday liquor sales, is that they’re not actually favoring the action they’re taking. Instead they’re giving “the people” the “right” to have their voices heard. State legislators don’t argue that “the people” have a right to be heard about ethics or whether to set caps on spending. I don’t feel all that strongly about the issue. Instead it’s the taxes-as-fees hypocrisy and the pass-the-buck phoniness on hot-button issues. And that whether Democrats or Republicans are in power, it’s still special interests that set the agenda.

● Look, if lobbyists or interest groups that feed at the public trough weren’t hiring the kinfolks of elected officials before Republicans came to power, and if they’re not now hiring the kinfolks of powerless, dead-end Democrats, the hirings are wrongful attempts to influence public policy. Voters know that. Before Republicans came to power they did, too.

I thought you were gone for good.

“Commuters took to off-interstate roadways, the arterials. Those are, in fact, the “alternatives” that can serve a majority of the region’s drivers.”
- Where were you? Every arterial on the northside was jammed packed. Some took an hour just to get out their subdivisions. Get real!

“The time comes one day or the other he must hang up and move on” and “it’s a decision only the Egyptians are able to take.”
- How is that any different from anything the Obama administration has said?

You’re a tired relic, living in a time gone past. Time for the AJC to give you your gold watch and put you out to pasture.

The Democrat Party in its present form and philosophy is about a hundred times more dangerous to our country than any Islamic terrorists. If I was Bin Laden?? I’d tell my forces to back off terrorist acts in America for now…because Obama and company are doing the job for them!!!

Atlanta traffic is like a tightrope. If you are able to traverse the tightrope successfully, your commute is likely 45 minutes to an hour. If anything at all goes wrong that time could double depending on where you are coming from.

I used to commute from Alpharetta to Buckhead every day. The commute averaged 1hour 10 minutes…straight down 400,..20 some-odd miles. This was during the…”improvement” to 400. So for 2 or 3 years during the construction on 400 the commute was 70 minutes. After construction was completed and the “improvement” was complete the commute time radically changed to…you guessed it…70 minutes.

The good Lord smiled on me and I found a job closer to home. I still use 400…but my commute distance has gone from 25 miles to 8 miles. 400 is still the preferred route. When it works, I can make it to work in 17 minutes. If anything…ANYTHING at all goes wrong anywhere on 400 that 17 minutes almost triples over 2 or 3 exits.

That is disgusting. The city planners here are horrendous. I have spoken to the GaDOT and any improvement takes over 20 years to be planned and implemented. That is even worse. By then whatever improvement you have installed is out of date. I have lived here for over 30 years and for 25 of those years people have been predicting that the center of Atlanta commerce would move northward on 400. It seems the only people that didn’t get this message are the GaDOT.

Remember when they put the “temporary” Toll booths on 400? “The toll will only be there untill we pay for the completion of the highway” which should take 5 years. Well the GaDOT lied to us. The toll booths are still there generating millions of dollars a year for a government agency that is as poorly run as any in the history of government agencies.

I’ll leave you with this: Atlanta used to be called Terminus because all of the railroads ran together in one spot. Atlanta was FOUNDED on a cutting edge infrastructure. Many years later we built a forward thinking airport…which to this day is a hub for the entire nation if not world. Atlanta was literally built based on on our outstandin infrastructure. Well since Hartsfield was built our leaders have turned their backs on history and refused to keep up.

Our infrastructure once defined us…now our infrastructure confines us. Good show GaDOT!

You can’t build your way out of traffic. It is a myth proven wrong decades ago.

Thinking About the “Hoots and Hollars” of Republicans and Their Newspaper Writers.

When I taught school, my third graders would sometime misbehave on the playground. When confronted with this misbehavior, the often defense from these children was, “he/she did the same thing” or “he/she did it first”. Republicans in the General Assembly and their newspaper writers are engaged in this same “third grade defense” when confronted with the reality that republicans will soon redraw election districts in the most politically partisan manner allowable in order to maintain or increase their gains. Although they were highly indignant when democrats did this, now they defend their partisan antics by saying, “the democrats did the same thing” or “the democrats did it first!!

Sitting in the balcony yesterday, it was a hoot and a hollar to see the reaction of the republican majority to Michelle Rhee’s speech. This majority, whose priority relating to public education is to legislate ways for the public to take my tax dollars and give it to private schools (regardless of whether the private school will accept children of all races and handicapping conditions), invited Michelle because they thought she was an ally of their dismantling of public education.

Anyone who has ever actually listened to or read Michelle’s thoughts would not have been surprised to hear her reject this silly (and dangerous) line of thought. I was so proud to hear her often stated position that, “vouchers in and of themselves are not the answer. Charter schools in and of themselves are not the answer” and to firmly and unconditionally stand with public educators by proclaiming, “The answer in my mind is a really strong traditional public school system”. Wow!! The anti-public education republicans did not see that coming! I bet they may be more careful about whom they invite to their party next time!

Yes, Jim, I too wonder how what Darth Cheney said is any different from what the Obama administration is saying? Or are you backhandedly complimenting the President and Secretary Clinton for being “seasoned, experienced and wise”? Or are you just being snarky, like usual? And why no direct shot at Quitting governor Palin for her intemperate remarks on the subject? Ah, to be able to say so little and make it seem like so much. What a talent you have.

I want to know why there are no center turn lanes or right hand turn lanes on intown roads. If there were, congestion would diminish greatly. I think about how many times I, and everyone behind me, have missed a light because one car needs to make a turn. Atlanta is supposed to be so great but they haven’t even figured out that turn lanes might help the situation.
Here’s a few intersections to start with (add your own as well please):
Every intersection on Cheshire Bridge, Briarcliff, North Decatur Road, Monroe Drive, Peachtree, Piedmont, Clairmont Road, North Druid Hills, Lavista, Lindbergh, and on and on and on…

Jim, if YOU “don’t feel strongly” about liquor sales on Sundays, how can it be a “hot button issue”? for example, let’s say you do not imbibe. how can it be a “taxes as fees” ruse? if you CHOOSE to abstain from alcohol, you might rejoice in the notion that other Georgians do, which of course makes you something of a “moocher” and not a “producer”. what’s next; not buying dairy products on Tuesdays? how about no pork (for our Muslim and Hebrew brothers) on Saturdays? you want to talk about hypocrisy (and irony), consider the “ban Sharia law” bill introduced this week. Sunday liquor sales in GA are presently “regulated” by Christian “law”.

Tom Walter, a white baseball coach, gave one of his kidneys to a black baseball player, Kevin Jordan, doesn’t capture the good picture. The good picture is the perverted views of the New World Order integrationist crowd and their devilish black minions have rendered a black baseball player and black people in general largely without black donors. Capturing the good picture show Americans, especially African Americans, where we have come from and where we are going.

Prior to the New World Order integrationist crowd and their devilish black minions supplanting Marcus Garvey’s philosophy of black self determination, and years later, the moral integration espoused by Martin Luther King Jr., any African American would have offered a kidney to another “brother or sister.” It would have been perverted to offer a kidney or a wife to a person of another race, except in exigent circumstances, primarily because it’s unnatural.

Jim, when a white baseball coach has to offer a kidney to a black baseball player, other than exigent circumstances, it’s time to be cynical. It indicates the New World Order integrationist crowd and their devilish black minions have successfully, with malice aforethought, placed gullible Americans especially African Americans under the Sword of Damocles.

Wooten’s meandering tome today was like watching a Tom and Jerry(mandering) cartoon. You see, anything can happen in a cartoon, and so anything goes in a Wooten pick-your-nose free-for-all Friday.

Bring up Reagan again. i dare U. The man wasn’t our prez 4long. he wasn’t anyone’s prez. I’m glad that Wooten still likes Bedtime 4 Bonzo, but the country has grown up. (Has it?) Yes, folks. I demand to know who was really in charge during Reagan’s 2nd term. The Saudi Royal Family? It makes sense. Explains alot. (camera to ninjas rappelling from my ceiling 2shut me TF up. insert kung fu emoticon here.).

I’m good. It’s just a scratch. Good thing I learned the Five Palm exploding moron technique.

Back to Wooten. When you read Wooten, put on Saint Saens’ “Havanaise”. The pathos illuminates the hypocrisy so that it dawns upon even you undauntable trolls.

” whether Democrats or Republicans are in power, it’s still special interests that set the agenda.” See what I mean? Wooten has been parse and parcel of every corrupt, reprehensible and pugnaciously-repugnant repudlickan roose for decades and decades. He has used his lucky break in journalism for the interests of not a few, for that would be too many, instead he engineered a Thousand-Tier Right where never have so few stolen so much from so many. (And all of that was accomplished without a short moustache…… inconceivable!)

Absolutely right about the butt-covering hypocrisy of politicians who won’t commit to supporting the Sunday package sales law unless they can couch it in terms of “letting the people decide.” No matter which party, they’re all gutless weasels – especially when it comes time to face off with the dwindling yet still-noisy religious Right.

“Even out of office, former Vice President Dick Cheney …”

Best part of your article; he’s out of office!

As for arterials, people like you and developers insisted that the arterials had multiple driveways to their developments and properties and at grade intersections. As traffic grew each main drive then needed signals, which caused delay. Signals chained together and not interconnected, with varying distances between them is the cause of arterial congestion.
Other states have high speed network of controled access arterials which bridges the flow of traffic from Interstates to the collectors and local street systems. But our politicians would interceed for the property owners to cause the constant stop and go operation on the arterials. Add the overflow traffic when an event occurs on the Interstates and….duh! But the developers got rich and the politicians benefited…wink wink! At least now see the error of the past and have put into practice more planning and regulations (you don’t like those either , do you) that DESIGNS efficiency into the systems with cross parcel access. Unfortunately these are being built only on new developments leaving many of the existing choke points in place.

Ariel Hart (AJC) lamented the same thing recently in her article. She forgets the constant battle road designers have with overdone development, the politicians, and the NIMBY neighborhoods ( now its BANANAS- Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anything!) She forgets the Outer Perimeter was canceled one month before the EIS was to be approved by FHWA. And shortly thereafter the same Repubs that stopped it whined that they need it now….one mile further north of their property and developemnts!

Will: Good post! Finally someone intelligent is weighing in on education!

School Teacher: Good question. The answers are:
1.The development is right up on the roadway and there is no cost effective place to build them,
2.Turn lanes in urban, pedestrian areas are disliked because rude motorists turning ignore the peds right to cross safely (state law) and they create a less “square ” block pattern for handicapped users of the sidewalk.If you doubt the safety issue, blindly step off the curb at a painted cross walk, and we’ll come visit you in the hospital!
3. Money- who will pay for them? Existing tax revenue dedicated to transportation is shrinking as the needs grow. The state motor fuel tax was set in 1982 w/o taking any inflation into account.

Good morning all. “Spend where we get the most congestion relief for the dollar.” For far less than a mass transit system we could move the entire state government bureaucracy to Macon, which seems to have enough empty infrastructure to absorb the bureaucracy. Not too far from Atlanta, but the reduction in Atlanta commuters would cure much future gridlock (which is noticeably better now that unemployment is so high.)

3.5% sounds about right, those may be honest results. Much less naughty activity when people are watching.

I don’t know Rep Brown’s definition of “overreaching,” but so long as there are no 100 mile long snake-width districts I won’t have a real problem with redistricting. Compact geography means more to me than “political parity” which I suspect was the meaning behind Rep. Brown’s codeword.

I declare my hostility to “e-verify.” That enforces and punishes a crime that ought not be on the books. There is nothing wrong with a society that allows people to work, and e-verify – even it proved more reliable than the usual Federal database – acts as a deterrent to productivity, like any other regulation or tax. How does the employer prove he looked and got a bad result, the normal effect of soliciting government advice? If you want to do some good, hire a bunch of gendarmes to go door-to-door to find the worthless layabouts who contribute nothing to the public good. And don’t look for just bureaucrats, but look for drug dealers and pimps and other similar warts on society.

It would be exceedingly difficult for me to call anyone involved in government “worthy,” but since Ronaldus Maximus died, Cheney (and maybe Tom Coburn) are closer to that standard than any other. A favorite line from Chairman Ann: “In 2005, Vice President Cheney gave 77 percent of his income to charity. He also shot a lawyer in the face, which I think should count for something.”

The Tom Walter story is amazing. Saw a tautological headline yesterday, “Coach: Kidney donation was a no-brainer.” Of course, any surgeon cutting otherwise would have been guilty of malpractice.

I marvel at people for whom the “right” to purchase alcohol is on a par with right to abortion, right to burn flags, right to revel in debauchery. Gordon Liddy – my favorite living curmudgeon – long ago explaining his new-found tea-totalerage (I made up that word), “why would I pay good money to get stupid.”

Lobbying, like the practice of law, is an off-shoot of the world’s oldest profession.

JIm Wooten was most likely safely tucked in his study contemplating his column during Tuesday’s rush-hour debacle while I was worried about getting my child to school on time. Anyone who could ever think that putting 200,000 cars on the one-lane residential streets throughout Chamblee and Dunwoody that were as clogged that day as—yes, I’m going to say it—Dick Cheney’s arteries, was not out on the roads that day. Maybe that was the answer in 1972, but it certainly is not now. But, I forgot, that’s the mindset of the modern-day conservative, a more backward-looking group people I’ve never seen.

Perhaps Mr. Wooten should have been out there helping to shovel some of the lard off I-285 on Tuesday morning. That might have made up for some of his fatuous comments over the years.

The biggest mistake Gov Sonny ever made was canceling the outer perimeter. Any one who has ever tried to go from Calhoun to Athens knows how stupid it was to cancel that route, after all the surveying and property acquisition had essentially been done.

Republicans could do the State a positive turn that would last forever, if while they have power, intoduce legislation that allows a computer to draw concise logical districts. Districts that bare no preconceived notions about minority districts, urban districts, party stuffing: after all we are all Georgians. The computer should be programmed to try to keep counties intact, so that we don’t have these aborted districts with 25,000 people from each of five counties voting for a congressman.

Two years have passed and I haven’t convinced the New World Order integrationist African Americans that Barack Obama is not African American. And that’s after Obama went on “The View” and told Barbara Walters, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Joy Behar, Sherri Shepherd, and Whoopi Goldberg that he is a Mongrel.

Later in the interview, Barack Obama told the audience that he doesn’t object to people referring to him as African American. That’s something that he wouldn’t make an issue of.

That admission didn’t make a bit of difference to integrationist African Americans. To this very day, 95% of them will declare that Barack Obama is African American. Barack Obama’s father is a black man from Kenya and his mother is a white woman from Kansas.

Do you think it would make any difference if the white baseball coach Tom Walter and people like Walter told the New World Order integrationist African Americans that having a white man donate a kidney to a black boy is not a good omen for African Americans in general? Trust me. It wouldn’t make any difference. They will give you a glib, stupid response like glen’s aliases and say “we don’t think like white people.”

Last week, someone called “Mr. FBI what do I have to do to stay out of prison” Al Sharpton’s show and told him Historically Black Colleges and Universities, HBCU’s, are basically irrelevant today. The caller believes prestigious institutions like Harvard, Princeton, Yale, etc would better serve the interest of black students and African Americans in general.

Immediately a defensive “Mr. FBI what do I have to do to stay out of prison” Al Sharpton went on the attack in an attempt to confuse the caller and the audience, African Americans. He mentioned many of the icons in the black community attended HBCUs, Martin Luther King Jr, Thurgood Marshall, etc…

Let me man it plain Jim. The caller is absolutely correct. You are sadly mistaken if you compare HBCUs in the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s that had the best black self determination professors that African Americans had to offer with the HBUCs in the 70s, 80s, 90s, 00, that’s basically staffed, 70%, with integrationist white female professors and other sabotaging integrationist borderline black professors.

Obviously, the black students entering the institutions were different. In the former, the overwhelming majority of black students believed in black self determination etc, and in the latter, the overwhelming majority of black students believe in the doctrine of integration. It’s highly misleading to suggest the respective institutions or students are similar. They are opposites.

If you were paying attention, “Mr. FBI what do I have to do to stay out of prison” Al Sharpton defended the value of HBCUs to African Americans today. His defense was in contradiction to his integrationist system of belief. The integrationist philosophy that Sharpton supports every day of his life is responsible for the destruction of authentic black institutions.

Clearly Al Sharpton and other civil rights leaders support black institutions in name only. But the vast majority of African Americans believe their civil rights leaders support authentic black institutions.

Amen?

Therefore, the onus is always on the person with superior knowledge to explain it or make it simple so other people can understand… It would give an audience the opportunity to decide, crazy or not crazy.

Can you imagine the difficulty Jesus would have had calling his show? Albert Einstein and other human beings with superior information/knowledge wouldn’t be allowed to speak or explain themselves because they sound crazy… But if people are allowed to speak, it gives the audience an opportunity to make a judgment, crazy or not crazy.

On the dark side, don’t call here talking crazy could be a simple way of excluding callers with information that doesn’t fit the company billing… In other words, hosts at 1380 waok radio are instructed to be interested in controlling what callers and the black community think, rather than knowledge and the adjustment a community could make…

When African American civil rights leaders, politicians, entertainers, radio personalities, and athletes convinced the masses of African Americans to support the doctrine of integration, they eliminated the necessity and will of black people to build black institutions for the survival of black babies, people.

When black babies are in the womb, the mother and the father rightly concludes that it’s impossible to meet the baby’s basic needs. They realize for the first time black people don’t have the institutions capable of sustaining black life. Both conclude the only alternative is to murder the unborn baby via abortion.

There are no people on earth, Jews, Chinese, Koreans, Indians, Whites, etc that will exhaust the precious recourses of their own race etc to sustain the lives of another group of people, for nothing. And I wouldn’t do it for nothing either. African Americans have very little value to other groups today because of computers, automation…They have little need to exploit black labor in large numbers.

“You” African Americans know the black civil right integrationist leaders, politicians, entertainers, radio personalities, and athletes that’s betrayed your trust…and reduced you to the moral state of a dog… Let them know that you have some dignity left. Vote any pro-choice, big government, person out of political office, and vote for pro-life, limited government, conservatives.

That’s a good first step toward changing the genocidal condition of African Americans.
