DHHS Secretary Wos speaks on freedom, not health care, at women's club

The Wake Republican Women’s Club introduced Aldona Wos, the state Secretary of Health and Human Services, as its Thursday meeting’s keynote speaker, saying she would discuss national health care. But when Wos took to the lectern, she said she would not be able to speak on the topic. Instead she addressed the group as a “private citizen,” and told personal stories on the themes of “responsibility” and “freedom.”

“Democracy provides us the … responsibility to make choices,” she said. “Responsibility is too often overlooked. We must … say, ‘What are the facts, and what is the right thing to do?’”

Wos told the story of her move from Poland to the U.S., and the tyranny her father faced during World War II. She's shared the story before in The News & Observer. She didn't specifically compare living in communist Poland with the U.S. government, but talked generally about appreciating the freedom available in this country. She said Americans have a responsibility to educate and improve themselves.

A bodyguard prevented a News & Observer reporter from asking Wos any questions after the speech.

Shezanne Cassim, the American jailed in the United Arab Emirates after posting a video parody, was sentenced Monday to one year in prison and a fine of 10,000 UAE dirhams (approximately $2,700).
The young American living in the UAE has been imprisoned since April, his family says, for posting what was intended to be a funny video on the Internet.
He was accused of defaming the UAE's image abroad, according to The National, the country's main English-language newspaper.
The video in question is a 19-minute short that pokes fun at a clique of Dubai teens who are influenced by hip-hop culture. In the 1990s, the label "Satwa G" was coined for a group of suburban teens who were known to talk tougher than they really were.
The video depicts a look at a "combat school" in the suburb of Satwa, where these "gangsters" are trained. The training includes how to throw sandals at targets, using clothing accessories as whips, and how to call on the phone for backup.Cassim's family says the 29-year-old has been charged with endangering national security.The charges were not read out in court. UAE officials would only say "Mr. Cassim was charged under the UAE's penal code. Anyone charged with a crime under the laws of the UAE is entitled to the fair trial protections contained in the UAE's constitution."
Cassim, from Woodbury, Minnesota, moved to Dubai in 2006 after graduating from college to work for PricewaterhouseCoopers.
He and some friends made and posted the video online in 2012. He was arrested in April. He was interrogated and arrested in Dubai before being transferred to a maximum security prison in Abu Dhabi. His family says it was five months before he was notified of the charges against him.


I doubt the N & O reporters have to get by the bodyguards to speak to the Democrats. Probably because the N & O reporters are themselves the bodyguards of the Democrats.


Extol the virtues of freedom and then demonstrate disdain for freedom of the press. Seriously? A bodyguard kept the reporter from asking questions?

Real classy, Aldona.
