 A man injured after being arrested by the Baltimore police died today, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Freddie Gray had to undergo a double surgery on three broken vertebrae and an injured voice box on Tuesday, after he was released by the police. He died today after days of remaining in a coma.

The 27-year old was arrested last week for an undisclosed violation. The police said that he was restrained on the ground by an officer during the arrest, but appeared to be fine when he was taken to the district station. However, a cell phone video shows that the arresting officers used force that some may seen as “brutal.”

Protests have broken out in his neighborhood since Gray was sent to the hospital.

“What happened to Freddie was unnecessary and uncalled for,” the Rev. Jamal Harrison Bryant of the Empowerment Temple said to protestors on Saturday. “All of those police officers involved need to be held accountable and answer for what they did, and need to be terminated from their positions,” he urged.

I Couldn’t Help Myself

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?

Don’t Be Fooled By A Simple Minded Fool Or A Downhome Good Ol’ Boy

When we consider presidential candidates;  we should ignore who they say they are and pay attention to who they really are; as evidenced by their past record in the case of many politicians and their public statements.

In the case of “Old Line Republican Families” like the Bushes; we need not and indeed should not give much credence to their public statements.

Their past record? Mostly a fabrication maintained for  the simple-minded who won’t bother to dig. And let’s face it. In the case of the Bush Family, the digging can be done with a stiff paper-clip.

Scratch! Scratch! Let’s see what we found.

The Average “Republican American”

republican americanThe 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

old folk singer

What I might look like singing this song if I lost fifty pounds; grew hair; and learned to play a guitar.

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 Don’t Think I Could Say It Better

I never read Mr. R.’s letter but I don’t think I need to. I am consistently repulsed by the ramblings of one

Mr. R.  Anonymous Right-Wing Mouthpiece

Mr. R.
Anonymous Right-Wing Mouthpiece

“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.
