The debate over health care reform has turned into a debate over debate techniques and tricks.  The opponents of the White House and Democrats proposals just scored again because the nation’s attention is focused on debate methods rather than the issues; which is surprising since they might have won anyway by sticking to the actual issues.

Yesterday, a lady at a town hall meeting said, “I want my country back.”  To be fair, she could have meant she wanted it back from Democrats who she feels tax and spend.  In my community, her statement was a thinly veiled reference to the hue of Barack Obama. 

My mind turned to Crispus Attucks, the first person shot at the Boston Massacre and the first martyr of the American Revolution.  Both sides in the healthcare debate have big money interests behind them; that is the American way.  The rich guys decide how it is going down and then get the spin-doctors to create a P.R. strategy to incite the masses.  The so-called Boston Massacre was actually British soldiers firing in self-defense against a taunting mob (sounds familiar.)  John Adams served as lawyer for the soldiers and got the murder changes down to manslaughter. 

In my neighborhood, we know the name Prince Hall from our friends and family who are Free Masons.  But, non-Masons might not know that Hall, the founder of Black Freemasonry, fought at the Battle of Bunker Hill.  If that protest lady wants her country back, she needs to go back to Crispus Attucks and Prince Hall rather than January 2009 and Barrack Obama.

Chuck D from Public Enemy said in a song, “Even Masons, they know it but they refuse to show it…but it is printed in black…it takes a nation of millions to hold us back.”  I am not one to snoop around in organization’s secret information.  Barack Obama’s classmate from law school Hill Harper is an actor who starred in a movie called the Skulls, which is based on Skull and Bones at Yale.  His character, a journalism student,  sought the secrets and played the price for being meddlesome. Harper is the lab guy on CSI New York when he is not busy helping the youth with encouraging lectures and positive books.  I read “Letters to a Young Brother” and “Letters to a Young Sister” and recommend both for young people of any culture.

Chuck D was referring to Mason knowledge that the Egyptian pyramid builders mastered construction and architectural skills in Africa as far back as 2500 BC. It blows me away to think that the Great Pyramid at Giza was designed and constructed by Africans that long ago and yes I know some people consider Egypt to be in the Middle East rather than Africa but it is Africa to me.
