Rev. Wright’s Traveling Circus

by George Dienhart

Another day, another controversy- it has become standard operating procedure for the Obama campaign. It was bad enough that Rev. Wright’s over the top remarks left Senator Obama reeling and grasping for explanations. It was worse when Sen. Obama came up with lie after lie to justify his association with Rev. Wright. Now we are subject to Sen. Obama’s worst nightmare- Rev. Wrights traveling circus. In the center ring, please give a hand to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Marvel as he offends everyone. Liberals rejoice as he blames all the worlds’ problems on America. Wonder at the spectacle as Rev. Wright turns on star church member Barack Obama. With all good circuses, viewers may be subject to some slight of hand- and this circus tour is full of it.

Could this latest round or Obama’s nightmares be preplanned? We have seen he is not beyond such political tricks- think back to the fainting supporters earlier in the campaign. The situation always followed the same script- and I do mean script. Five events, five fainters, five times Obama reacts the same way- right down to his words. Are the latest of Wright’s antics more of the same?

Let us jump to Wrights remarks at the National Press Club. When asked about his comments that "America's chickens are coming home to roost"- he refused to answer the question. He claimed that the question had been “nullified”- to wit. "Have you heard the whole sermon? ... No, you haven't heard the whole sermon. That nullifies that question". FYI for Rev. Wright- America has heard the whole sermon, and found that you may be a tad out of touch with reality.

Recently, Rev. Wright has claimed that Obama has distanced himself from Wright and his church. "(He) distanced himself from some of my remarks. ... He had to distance himself, because he's a politician, from what the media was saying I had said, which was un-American." Interesting- Wright believes Obama is un-American because he distanced himself from Wright’s ridiculous claims. Wright does not have a problem with Obama refusing to wear a flag pin, or the subsequent flip on the subject, or the fact that Obama will negotiate with our enemies. No, Obama is un-American because he chose act as if he is breaking away from Wright’s influence.

What kind of influence? Let us think back for a moment:

  • God &$% America
  • The US of KKK America
  • AIDS is a secret government plot.
  • Inviting terrorists to contribute to the church newsletter.

I think it is clear why Obama want to look like he has distanced himself. If only he would actually distance himself. Obama has continuously lied and made excuses for this man, but know we see a new tact. Big bad Obama has forsaken poor Rev. Wright. Wright makes a national tour espousing how Obama does not return his calls or bring him flowers. You see, poor Rev. Wright is the real victim.

In reality, the American public is the real victim. An American public that has grown tired and is truly looking for change is poorly served by an Obama campaign that weaves the word change into every speech and dispatch, only to refuse to back up their statements. As usual, it is just more of the same bad behavior form the Obama Camp.

Ted Turner is an idiot.

by George Dienhart

I am new to the area, having moved to Metro Atlanta a year ago. I did so knowing that Ted Turner is an idiot. He’s alway’s been an idiot. I’m not saying he didn’t build a successful business and make gobs of money, but that doesn’t mean he’s not an idiot. I’ve got two words to prove my point- Jane Fonda.

I do have more evidence to offer up. Ted’s most recent bout of worshiping the false idol Al Gore. A couple of weeks ago he stated that we would all be resorting to cannibalism soon. That statement was an embarrassment to everyone who lives in the state of Georgia. Like or not, the rest of the world associates Ted Turner and Atlanta almost as much it associates Oprah with Chicago or Trump with New York. The difference is, Oprah and Trump usually know when to shut up. Ted Turner does not.

Just recently Turner spoke up about the global food shortages- he forgot to acknowledge that these food shortages were caused by switching food crop land to biofuel crop land. This is they type of mess caused by people who call for more biofuel crops. People like Ted Turner in his speech to the World Trade Organization in 2006. So now Ted want’s humanity to curb it’s instinct to reproduce. Everyone, that is, except the Turner family. The mouth has 5 children.

What’s a Ted Turner paradise look like? Well it would be a world with only 350 million people. I’m not sure what he want’s us to do with the other 6 Billion Humans- maybe that’s where the cannibalism comes in.

AJC Swings for the fences hits a long single.

by George Dienhart

I think the Atlanta Journal Constitution had a good idea on building a website that ranks hospitals. The execution leaves something to be desired. The website keys in on customer satisfaction rating. That should be a component in rating hospitals. In explicably, the ratings appear to be un-weighted.

A hospital in a small rural area will most likely have a much higher rating than a hospital that performs riskier procedures. For example, small rural hospitals may concentrate primarily with stitching up clumsy children, as opposed to a major regional hospital that is doing heart transplants. Riskier procedures inherently carry higher mortality rates, which drive down customer satisfaction. What is my advice for the AJC? Weight the grades to take this in account, and build another site that measure quality of care based on benchmarks other than customer satisfaction.
