Today, I was reading a favorite blog and I saw a comment by a well-meaning but slightly confused (I guess) reader that he still didn’t have Health Insurance because he couldn’t afford it without the subsidy and he refused to take the subsidy; feeling that his neighbors needed the help more than he.
From someone else I might have been angry but I have read comments from this reader before and I don’t think he means to seems as shallow as he does. I believe he is sincere and yet somewhat misinformed.
So of course I; in my usual arrogant way; took it upon myself to explain why I felt he should adjust his thinking about the Affordable Care Act and get on board the train to Freedom. Then I thought; maybe everyone should see this and here we are.
So here is the comment I made in its entirety with only the names removed to protect…….well no-one. Sure was sounding great up till then; Huh?
The average “Republican American” is a Republican because that Party feeds a base wish to feel strong and independent.
It assures its members that everything they have; they have because of themselves alone.
It assures them that they are worthy of self worship.
It assures them that the art and the craft and the skill is not in the creation of a thing but in the paying for it.
It assures them that they have a support network of like-minded loonies who will defend their right to eat until they spew digested food all over the room while everyone else is relegated to eating that spewed food to survive.
They don’t recognize the concept of Privilege.
“Obviously the poor and the Black don’t get any and since I deserve everything I have; I don’t get any either; therefore; Privilege doesn’t exist here.
No privilege; no advantage.
No advantage; no foul; everyone plays by the same rules; to be determined situationally by those with the most power; to be determined monetarily by those with the most education; to be…
“go ahead and pick up the refrain the next time it comes around on the Gee-tar.”
I’m your Republican neighbor; don’t you murder me
I’m gonna’ lead you to heaven; just you wait and see.
I’ve got all the money and I’ve got a plan;
You do all the workin’; I’ll just be “The Man”
You do all the workin’; and I will be your friend.
I’m your Republican neighbor and it’s clear to me
You don’t need that healthcare, vacation or mo-ney
I’m your Republican neighbor and what you need instead
Someone who understands you and works you till your dead;
You’re just a beast of burden to beat about the head.
I’m your Republican neighbor; I can see you’re hurt
Just you lay your head down; I’ll cover it with dirt.
I’m your Republican neighbor; no need for you to stress
I’ll keep all the money and be a big success.
I’ll keep all the money and use it to oppress.
I never read Mr. R.’s letter but I don’t think I need to. I am consistently repulsed by the ramblings of one
“Conservative Hack” or another. Mr. R. is just one more Republican with a Calculator for a Conscience.
The real gem here is the response by Tony Wikrent to this “Wrong-Wing” lie. It stands alone as a statement of belief and philosophy
“I was distressed to read Mr. R.’s letter “Free Education” in the February 4, 2015 issue of The Caswell Messenger. It is one thing to espouse a philosophy of political economy that protects selfishness and the rich; it is altogether another thing, and entirely unacceptable, to claim that such a philosophy is moral, and was condoned by the Founders.
Patriot Act? What a name.
The law that suspends most of our Constitutional protections being linked with “Patriotism”.
So if you are a Patriot; you won’t mind being anally probed pre-flight.?
ADT; the security corporation with a long history in the home security business has begun a new ad campaign featuring Ving Rhames as the spokesperson and effectively as the symbol of safety in our homes.
I; for one; am happy to see this particular development. I believe it is a positive sign when a big, burly, black man is placed in the position of representing home safety rather than the older stereotypical associations of large black men as a threat to our safety.
It isn’t the end all and be all of racial healing. It isn’t going to get anyone a better chance at an education or decent job by itself.
It is; I think; a sign. A sign that it has become; “Ok” to use a black man to be synonymous with white people being safe in their homes. Actually I am just a bit more excited about this than I let on. It’s a pretty big deal. It shows; better than anything I have seen yet that America’s attitudes are changing.
Perhaps it’s time we face the truth; determined by the actions of the Party involved and people who represent that Party; that Republicans are many things. Capitalists; Theocrats; Authoritarians; and Morally Corrupt.
The thing that Republicans can no longer be said to be; is Americans and this is why:
I stated that the Passing and implementation of The Affordable Care Act was a good first step towards Universal Health. I said that I believed that the cost to employers and their unwillingness to co-operate with The Act would push us ever further in that direction.
I received several comments disagreeing with my opinion; which is cool; and I don’t mean to say that this article will magically make you agree with me but you must admit that if the GOP are seeing it and admitting it; I just might be right.
If so then Bravo. The achieving of a good, Universal Health System is the only good reason I can see for a bill as complex as Obamacare has needed to be.
The need to do the “Capitalist Dance” is an obstruction to Justice for all but by “doing The Dance”, My President will force that clear and obvious answer on even the blind Republicans.
So please read this article. It is short, but long enough to contain the undercurrent of excitement in Mr.Willies words.

I give you; ” The Next President of the United States of America”
If we have any sense.
But then; that is always a debatable question; isn’t it?
I don’t support her just because of the issue addressed here but because she insists on
BOLD-PROGRESSIVE-POLICIES (even though she isn’t running as of now)
What we need is BOLD-PROGRESSIVE-POLICIES; NOW!!
What we need is Elizabeth Warren
