Owning a Slave-Mastering Monster Through Satire

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

Jourdan Anderson completely owns his former "master"

Free man, Jourdan Anderson, completely owns his former “master”

In Rediscovered Letter From 1865, Former Slave Tells Old Master To Shove It:

(Trymaine Lee) In the summer of 1865, a former slave by the name of Jourdan Anderson sent a letter to his former master. And 147 years later, the document reads as richly as it must have back then.

The roughly 800-word letter, which has resurfaced via various blogs, websites, Twitter and Facebook, is a response to a missive from Colonel P.H. Anderson, Jourdan’s former master back in Big Spring, Tennessee. Apparently, Col. Anderson had written Jourdan asking him to come on back to the big house to work.

My Commentary: This is an awesome use of satire, and because of its tone, I have no doubt that Jourdan’s former monster of a “master” read the letter through-and-through: a pretty good measure of its success! 🙂

Corrupt Government Monopoly on Civil Services Results in Firefighters Letting Home Burn Down

The following debate originally took place upon the Facebook wall of family…

2010-10-06 - Corrupt Government Monopoly on Civil Services Results in Firefighters Letting Home Burn Down

GenaireFirefighters Watch As Tennesee Home Burns To The Ground:

Raheem G.: nope… its called the free rider effect, we’re learning this in intro to pol. right now. the law requires people to pay the fee, but people dnt pay, thinkin that it will get taken care of anyway. they learned the hard way. they had the choice to pay they chose not too… their loss.

Raheem G.they were following orders man, give em a break.

Genaire: So if you are behind on luck due to this engineered economic crisis and are without a job it’s ok to just be homeless now?

Rayn: This whole unnecessary situation was created by the strangle-hold monopoly that our local governments maintain over almost all of our civil services nowadays. Too bad there isn’t a REAL FREE MARKET with REAL FREE CHOICE. If there was, some business savy person (or even one dedicated to helping others) would formulate healthy competition to the government-based solution, even by offering a DIFFERENT VERSION of the SAME SERVICE – perhaps a “PAY-PER-USE” version. And, if you think that forms of INDEPENDENCE from governmental oversight sounds impossible, then take a history lesson, because that is exactly how we lived BEFORE our government began ENCROACHING upon our FREEDOMS!

Honestly, with all of the economic issues America is facing right now, if the elected officials in this Tennesse town were intelligent, they would simply charge an INDIVIDUAL RATE to those not interested in subscribing to (or can’t afford) what is, by all technical definitions, a “fire insurance plan” for $75 a year. Why does the State’s SINGLE-OPTION MONOPOLY go UNQUESTIONED as somehow “good” or “necessary”? Choose to pay or get nothing? HOW EXACTLY IS THAT CHOICE!? Obviously, what is at work here is NOT CAPITALISM, but instead, TYRANNICAL STATE-SANCTIONED CORPORATISM (also known as FASCISM)!

Discussing Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on His Birthday

The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s Very Last Speech – Remember!“…

Rayn: Commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s birthday by listening to his very last speech, which he delivered on April 3, 1968, at the Mason Temple (Church of God in Christ Headquarters) in Memphis, Tennessee – the day before he was murdered in an effort to silence his voice.


Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Prophetic Last Speech:


Sara: Happy Born Day Martin Luther King, Jr. We will continue to spread your message and fight the good fight, in your honor. This speech gives me chills. I am amazed we posted the same video 15 seconds apart.
