They hiding in the back room, ripping your health care up… helping out the oligarchs–so you need to hide yo’ kids, hide yo’ wife, (hide yo’ kids, hide yo’ wife) and hide yo’ husband, cuz they want you sick or bankrupt. You don’t have to come and confess; this bill speaks for you–and we see you. I sho’ see you. So you can run and tell that, run and tell that, run and tell that, homeboys…

We been dealing with you for centuries, you think we really dumb, you think we is dumb, for real…

Everything that y’all say is suspect, after all, y’all make money off of neglect…

I thought about calling Collins and Corker and reciting that. Instead, I’ll share it with y’all and leave them a different, more nuanced message that seeks to disclose my thorough opposition to this extraordinarily heartless bill. 

This ain’t about party cuz the spirit behind this bill has been in existence before there was a Republican Party. The “modern” jump-off of this continent began with the unapologetic nakedness of the “necessity” of disposable people. The Republican Party of today has swallowed this gamma bomb of exploitation and Darth Sidius and have gone full Hulk and Sith Lord. 

As the world becomes more technologically advanced and economically unequal, automation, high-skilled jobs and increased cost of living will continue to erode a system that connects health care with employment and puts profit before people. Market based principles won’t protect human beings because large swaths of human beings are increasingly irrelevant to the market. As we live between the reality self-driving cars and the moment Skynet becomes self-aware and annhilates us all, it behooves all institutions and ideologies not so much to “progress” but to truly ask how or if they are relevant or if they are leading more human beings into irrelevancy, or stated better and blunter, leading us to death. I’m starting to think some of these senators are doing Skynet’s job. But that makes sense. After all, computers first learn from the spirit of their programmers. 

There’s a ghost in the shell after all. And the ghost ain’t Holy. It’s Terminal. It terminates. Man, y’all must’ve forgot. The Western Hemisphere was “conquered” by some OG’s…

Now what’s really hood?

And I’m still waiting for them death panels…

Back to you….

Faith, hope, and love….
