Verbal gaffe will cost Gingrich

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

● Assuming Gov. Nathan Deal gets to appoint — or voters elect — one more Supreme Court justice in the mold of the two former Gov. Sonny Perdue appointed, Georgia will have a majority whose interpretation of law is more pleasing to conservatives — and decisions like this week’s 4-3 ruling on charter schools will go the other way. While that one was not strictly left-right, the majority bought the arguments of the old-line education establishment that has bitterly resisted parental choice — and effectively gutted charter school competition. For those who favor choice, the task now is to fight for vouchers and for the principle that public money follows the child to the education provider parents deem most suitable.

● The dissenters in the charter school decision were Presiding Justice George H. Carley, a 1993 Zell Miller appointee, and Justices Harold Melton and David E. Nahmias, both Perdue appointees. You have to read the dissent by Justice Nahmias, accessible through the Georgia Supreme Court’s website. (First read the majority opinion.) If Nahmias does not wind up on the federal bench at least at the circuit court level, if not the U.S. Supreme Court, I’ll be surprised. If you read one opinion this year, it ought to be Nahmias’ superbly researched, reasoned and argued dissent. Give the veteran Justice Carley another conservative of the Melton-Nahmias mold, let them play off each other’s intellect, and this court will be smoking.

● In commenting last week on the poor performance of HOPE recipients, I noted that at some colleges fewer than 20 percent of freshmen kept the stipend until graduation — and that at the University of West Georgia the rate is 8.3 percent. Because of a dropped digit, that number reflects more poorly than warranted on the preparedness of West Georgia students. The actual rate is 18.3 percent.

● Of 204 Obamacare waivers approved by the administration in April, almost 20 percent of them were to businesses in one California congressional district, reports The Daily Caller. You had to ask which district? Nancy Pelosi’s, of course. Do as I say. Meanwhile, the Las Vegas Sun reports that Nevada, home state of Pelosi’s Senate counterpart Harry Reid during the Obamacare cram-down, “had secured a statewide waiver from certain implementation requirements of the Obama administration’s health care law, because forcing them through, the department [Health and Humans Services] found, ‘may lead to the destabilization of the individual market.’” Waive the whole country, as Mitt Romney suggests.

● What do Newt Gingrich and a student belonging to a group calling itself Georgia Undocumented Youth Alliance have in common? On Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” Newt referred to U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan’s Medicare reform as “right wing social engineering,” prompting Ryan to declare, “With allies like that, who needs the left?” Newt apologized and called Ryan to explain himself. Said the student, speaking for illegals, upon Deal’s signing of House Bill 87: “We have a right to remain in this state … We will not obey a law that is unjust, that is meant to drive out our families and criminalize our community.” Knowing when to shut up is a real virtue.

● I listened to a low-key Gingrich at last weekend’s state Republican convention — the result, perhaps, of a battle with allergies — and thought: This guy could be president, despite the fact that lefties hate him as much as they do Sarah Palin and did George W. Bush. Then came “Meet the Press” and the alienation of the Republican Right. What seemed possible Friday night became distant and probably unattainable by the weekend’s close.

So, people who are here illegally and are criminals actually say “we have a right to remain in this state”. Aren’t most of them Catholics? Do their priests agree with this view? If so, so much for “good honest Christians”.

Barry’s comments were the most intelligent I’ve seen in awhile: “Hey, education voucher supporters: If I’m unhappy with my local tax-funded law enforcement, can I get a voucher to pay for private security? You know, let my tax money follow me where I want to take it?”

To answer your question carlosgvv, yes, most of the immigrants are Catholic and there is nothing in our bible about “Thou shall not cross the northern border, neither shall thy enter into the USA,” so I’m okay with that. Have you asked any of them if they are here illegally? Have any of them lied to you? If not, then we must assume they are still good honest Christians. Thank you for playing. Now say two “Hail Mary’s” and pick a bushel of onions.

Honestly I think the state Supreme Court’s consideration of charterization is so deeply cool. Personally I could teach it either way, but I applaud the Court. There’s a growing sense that public schools are criminal syndicates. Indeed they are.

That’s slightly touching, Fr. Sarducci. (BTW I did find the Pope in the pizza). I’m sick of hammering on these persons as lawbreakers and cheaters. The other part of truth is that many of them are refugees of one sort or another. We Yanks flatter ourselves with the thought that our country is so almighty great, but really the fact is that many of these people are simply alighting on our shores from some version of Hell, and we’re devils not to take them in. Our challenge is to balance compassion against vindictiveness., Aas you say, to ask rather than to accuse. It’s an affective problem. I’ve known some of these people living in holes in the ground and sweating their lives away under Visqueen to put food on their table but also on ours. A great nation would treat them honestly and fairly. This nation is great enough for that, surely.

Real Athens, I quite agree with you. If you are the voice of our great university, then thanks for that also. Incidentally, the Court clearly is determined to air all of that and we need only to stay tuned. Look up. It’s all good. Finally we are finding sanity. By way of which, I honestly thank Mr. Wooten for his weekly blast of lucidity. Oh my God, Amen.

But let me ask; are you the same Glenn who headed to California to strighten out a school system? School systems, yeah. What we need is a system to teach parents how to raise children. Whoops, I’m getting old fashioned. Family values and all that stuff.

I”m also a bit old fashioned about illegal immigrants. Just a fuddy duddy over following the law. Yep, everybody doing their own thing can lead to that ugly word; anarchy. Too big a word for the situation maybe, but getting close.

You Know Who, TBO has a bone to pick with Seal Team 6. With all of their technical expertise etc, they should have no trouble, no trouble at all, finding me. But for the sake of God, I hope they leave their guns, explosives, and other exotic lethal devices at home.

Knock knock knock knock knock knock knock …Oh Shick! Yeah! Who is it! Who’s there! This is Seal Team 6. Seal Team Who! This is Seal Team 6. Listen You Know Who, TBO. We’ve heard you’ve got a bone to pick with us. If so, you had better open the door because our time is extremely limited.

Alright alright alright Mr. Seal Team 6; hold on a minute until I put on some clothes. Gladys! Gladys! Gladys! What’s wrong honey? I done fussed-up now. That’s Seal Team 6 at the door! Well, let them in. If they were going to get you, they would already be in here by now. Yeah yeah yeah, you’re right. I think you’re right. Open the door and see what they want.

Hey hey hey… how you doing Mr. Seal Team 6? Come right on in, come on in. Like you said, I know your time is extremely limited so I’ll ask just one quick question. OK? OK. Why didn’t you take Bin Laden into custody instead of killing him? You know the civilians in charge of National government have pulled the wool over the eyes of Americans for years; Gulf of Tonkin, James Earl Ray, Jessica Lynch, Pat Tillman, birth certificates, transcripts, and the hold nine yards.

Some things never seem to change. Remember when some unknown people conspired to murder John Fitzgerald Kennedy just as some unknown people conspired to murder 3,000 Americans, 911. Guess what? Jack Ruby and you did the exact same thing. Jack Ruby murdered Lee Harvey Oswald and the truth about who conspired to murder JFK. And you murdered Bin Laden and the truth about who conspired to murder 3,000 Americans.

And you can’t hide behind just taking order from your superiors. It’s incumbent upon you to determine if the orders are within the limits of the law. Nazis failed to determine if orders given by their superiors to murder were within the limits of the law. And they paid a heavy price for it at the Nuremburg Trials.

Your time is up, said Seal Team 6, as the muffled sounds of helicopters could be heard approaching. We have another mission at hand. But we will take your concerns under consideration and provide answers to you via e-email.

Seal Team 6 filed out of our house with military precision. And we made haste to the windows and saw 4 helicopters lifting up and disappearing into the Wild Blue Yonder.

In a different context, the Bible spoke of people who look in the mirror and go away, not able to remember what they look like. Today’s GOP has totally lost its collective memory of how it has historically governed and what Reagan conservatism looked like. . The Tea Party radicals would have been given short shrift by Reagan – and they in turn would have considered him a heretical traitor.
Newt accidentally told the truth – a rarity for him – and swiftly paid the price.
As a Democrat, I must confess, this is amusing and great politics for my party, as the Republicans grow ever more extreme. Good for the country – probably not. It helps if there are some grownups in both parties. Making Newt bow down and kiss the hem of a wet-behind-the-ears dreaming idealogue like Ryan reduces that likelihood considerably.

Newt Gingrich has no morals and no has shown himself to have no backbone on an opinion that is in keeping with most Americans, do not do away with Medicare.

This slime ball thinks he can declare himself a Catholic and make it all better. It does not change the fact that is cheated on his first two wives when both were ill, and no amount of patriot BS will change that fact. And the latest Ms Gingrich looks as scary as Cindy McCain does with her plastic appearance and overly dyed hair. Would you want your 20 something year old daughter fooling around with a twice married middle aged womanizer who is a complete hypocrite to boot? Because that is exactly what the pious Ms Gingrich did. All an annulment does is pay off the Catholic church with enough money to overlook the rules and allow you back in the church. Enough money will do wonders when it comes to piousness, or lack there of. And the cherry on top of the whole sordid affair is the leadership role Newt took in the impeachment of Clinton while the affair was on going. You can’t make this stuff up.

Ryan’s plan is crap which gets rid of any social net for seniors and they are beginning to take notice.

Seriously, what insurance company would insure really old sick people? They are in BUSINESS to make money and seniors will be a money pit, thus un-insurable inless the seniors are very wealthy, but then the very wealthy don’t really need help do they? Unless by help you mean cutting taxes by 10%, then Ryan is all for “helping” them out.

Why anyone other than rich people vote for these bozos is something I will never understand.

You Know Who, TBO says, “Newt Gingrich’s scare tactics reminds me of the language integrationist African American leaders have been using toward African Americans for years when faced with problems requiring triage… It’s obvious to me every single integrationist African American leader lacks the ability to accurately assess problems and their eventual effects on the individual or group of people. And they lack the ability to apply answers which will avert an eventual disaster.

As a result, integrationists African Americans have been in the United States for 500 years and don’t have a collective pot of their own to use. Even worse, they are experiencing abject social, mental, and spiritual conditions.”

And if our fiscal problems can be fixed via negotiations, they will definitely negotiate. And if some applied sociology and some negotiations are applicable, they will use both, etc.”

The cries of God Almighty’s people have come before him and he has anointed You Know Who, TBO, to go down and serve a peculiar underhanded sort of justice to the perverted New World Order integrationist crowd and their devilish black minions. The same confusing kind those criminals delivered to the American people, especially African Americans i.e. painful Godless spiritual deaths, Godless iron clad imprisonments, Godless bloody stripes and Godless tattered wounds.

The Godless perverted New World Order integrationist crowd and their devilish black minions are attacking religions around the world as we speak; especially Christianity and Islam. This should not come as a surprise to you because they have been attacking Christianity with New Age Christianity since the days of the Apostle Paul.

The Godless perverted New World Order integrationist crowd and their devilish black minions are constantly using their institutional power to change the music in Christian churches as well as their moral standards. Many Christian women complain of not being able to find dresses worth wearing anymore because the vast majority of them are too short, or risqué. But others go along with the program.

The Godless perverted New World Order integrationist crowd and their devilish black minions are attacking Islam too. Just as they have used their institutional power to put the perverted New World Order integrationist African Americans over traditional conservative African Americans, they are positioning the Godless perverted New World Order integrationist Muslims, primarily living in the United States, as the proper heirs to Islam.

The Godless perverted New World Order integrationist crowd and their devilish black minions have been patiently waiting for an opportune time to fundamentally change Islam since the days Prophet Muhammad, (PBUH). They seek to completely vanquish the good Muslims along with their righteous moral code through warfare. And as you know, good Muslim women and men prefer to dress modestly.

The Godless perverted New World Order integrationist crowd and their devilish black minions prefer clothing that does not cover the entire body. They like clothing so thin that you can see through it in addition to dresses tight enough to see that figure.

The Godless perverted New World Order integrationist crowd and their devilish black minions believe it’s progressive for Muslim men and women to wear identical clothing. And they want to integrate the clothing of Muslims with that of infidels too; clothing that attracts attention and indicates status.

Due to the Civil Rights Movement, the condition of the masses of African Americans is worst than it’s ever been. African American women have murdered nearly 40 million black babies in nearly 40 years via abortion. Nearly 2 million African Americans are in prison. And those not in prison are likely on probation or parole.

Nearly 40 % of African Americans are unemployed. The criminal justice system, police, courts, and prison are more hostile to African Americans that ever because other African Americans have been integrated in it.. And they provide the necessary cover for the mistreatment of African Americans captured by the justice system.

African Americans have extremely poor, off the charts, self esteem. Nearly 80% of African American women are unmarried. And they have 10 zillion uncle toms that can be heard on the radio and television stations of other races spewing anti-African American propaganda with a twist… The negatives are infinitum.

The positives of integration are few, far, and in between. They have a substantial number of black athletes, entertainers, politicians, a minimal amount of black CEOs, and a mongrel black president. That’s basically it.

You Know Who, TBO says if the masses of African Americans are not smart enough to understand the game being played on them by their “own people” and fight the uncle toms that’s been employed to mislead and destroy them, then they are getting what they deserve.

They can’t blame this one on the white man and other groups.
