    Re: Gladney The Uninsured Activist

    I have been trying to fallow this story--but all we have so far is what again...

    I hold my opinion until more smoke clears...The press conference with his attorney asking for donations while not a evidence of anything specific, does raise some reasonable eyebrows.

    He had a trip to the ER but not much after that. So does he have insurance or not? Why is his lawyer asking for donations for "medical" bills.

    Fair enough if you have an alleged hate crime you also have an alleged beating and an allegedly hurt gladney.

    A black guy calling another black guy the N-word isn't a hate crime. Once again you have to prove intent a specific targeting of an individual for his race and intimidation and violence because of the race.

    We probably won't hear much. If he loses this will go quiet and no one will hear about him. The right's cause of the moment will be gone.

    Really now you seem to be doing quite a bit of propping up. There's nothing unfounded there's no physical evidence that the alleged beating took place. Just like there's no evidence that an alleged hatecrime took place. I'd say you have zero credentials to make a determination that he was actually beaten and was hurt.

    Until we have a medical report to support anything I'd say we don't have much to go off of other than a guy sitting in a wheelchair with no obvious signs of injury considering he was "kicked in the head".

    No desperation here. You're trying to say there was a hate crime based off of no actual evidence of it.

You're soooo quick to condemn Gladney with little information (oh, oh...except a laymen's diagnosis of "fine". still can't get over that. ). But at the same time, with just as little information, so quick to absolve the union guy. I find the hypocrisy quite amusing. But not surprising.
    You're so quick to support Gladney's tale as well when the video evidence doesn't back it up. Gladney stood there pretty close to him. I'm so quick to absolve the union guy because we have no proof the beating took place.

    I'm basing it off the available evidence what do you base your opinion on?

    I know enough to see that a guy supposedly kicked in the head has no head injuries.

    Re: Gladney The Uninsured Activist

    All I have to say on the matter is that I will sit back and wait for facts to come in before condemning or congratulating anyone. I am more inclined to believe the first hand accounts of his injury than I am to accept your "diagnosis" of "just fine" (that still cracks me up..."just fine" ) as a person with bias speculating on internetz.

    That will be all.

    How does him being uninsured and opposing socialized medicine make him a hypocrite? It does no such thing. In fact, it makes him more legitimate than people with insurance. Despite the fact that he currently has no insurance, rather than lobbying the government for a forced publicly subsidized hand out that would help him in the short term he still holds true to his belief knowing that choice in the long term will be bad for the nation as a whole. Your characterization is backwards.

    It's no more hypocritical than someone without a drivers' license opposing the establishment of a bungling, bureaucratic government-run DMV.
