The year was 2012. A native of Columbus, Ohio’s, Worthington suburb, Bryan Williamson had studied interior design and learned furniture-making in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, while his New Jersey-born wife, Catherine, miserably slaved away at a public accounting firm.
They were paying $1,600 a month for a one-bedroom apartment in Sunnyside, Queens, when a trip to see Bryan’s family back in Ohio led to an epiphany.
Driving around the city’s German Village, Short North and Old Towne East neighborhoods, they noticed the city’s positive energy — and the refreshing degree of homeownership. “We started thinking, ‘There’s a momentum here,’ ” says Catherine, now 33. “And we could make something for ourselves that we wouldn’t be able to do in NYC. That was the turning point, and we moved six months later.”
Today, their company, Mix Design Collective, renovates commercial and residential real estate, all chronicled on their blog, Beginning in the Middle. They’ve purchased numerous properties, ranging in price from $59,000 to $220,000. For their own home, the couple paid $204,000 for a 1,200-square-foot, two-bedroom, 2½-bathroom duplex in German Village, which is Park Slope-esque — walkable and filled with independent businesses.
They rent three others, spread across several neighborhoods, out on Airbnb.
Their monthly housing costs for their primary residence are about $1,400 per month — about $200 less than in New York City.
The Williamsons aren’t the only New Yorkers to find professional opportunities, affordable homes and a high quality of life in Ohio’s capital city (population 861,000).
According to a 2014 census, about 1,000 New Yorkers (or 2,000, if you count those from New Jersey and Connecticut, too) relocated to Columbus between 2011 and 2014, and the figure seems to be growing.
“I can say anecdotally that we frequently hear stories of travelers who, upon visiting, begin looking at the city as place where they’d like to live and put down roots,” says Megumi Robinson, director of public relations for the city’s tourism board, Experience Columbus.
Trump Is Poised To Take 2024 By Storm
Biden has unsuccessfully been able to reform any issues left by the Trump administration and quite frankly has only made it worse. Inflation and the economy is hurting everyone, especially lower income voters who ironically voted for Biden. This has set off a windstorm for Biden as his approval rating goes further down the drain. With little hopes of any major policy wins before the 2022 election, Biden’s Administration, which championed “getting things done”, has stopped before it really even got off the ground.
With 2022 around the corner we will see a slue of Republican Presidential challengers, with Trump of course, being at the center of the pack. Rumors have it that Ron DeSantis, Chris Christie, and the like of Mitt Romney will all join the nomination, however this is only rumor and speculation. Trump however, will become the nominee. It would be hard for anyone to top someone who has already been President, even a firebrand like DeSantis, who has garnered national support for a Presidential run.
Biden has failed so miserably that when a another Democrat attempts to challenge Trump’s economy compared what we are in now, it will be completely inexcusable. Not to mention the major social engineering the majority of parents and Americans are rejecting in terms of the LGBTQ Mafia Agenda & BLM. Biden, if anything, has completely destroyed the Democratic party’s chance of being a favorite with middle and upper-income voters, setting a disasters for the Democrats in 2024.
The Mis-education of Uncle Tom. The Racist Democrats. Part 2
The left will rewrite history, whether it be Uncle Tom or Confederate statues. Don’t believe the hype.
In 1852 Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote the fictional novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin. The character Uncle Tom was based on a real life person, Josiah Henson a former slave. Uncle Tom’s Cabin was the most read book of the 19th Century. There was printing day and night 24 hours a day to keep up with demand. It was translated into over 60 languages. As history would have it, President Abraham Lincoln the first Republican President, met Harriet Beecher Stowe and said, “So you’re the little lady that wrote the book that started this big war”. Uncle Tom’s Cabin was that influential.
Uncle Tom’s Cabin had such an impact on the abolition of slavery, that the southern slave states made it a crime punishable by imprisonment or death to have, read, print or sell the book. It was even popular internationally putting more pressure on the institution of slavery. This gave a big boost to the slavery abolitionists movement among whites, blacks, Christians and the Republican party.
The real Uncle Tom was born Josiah Henson June 15th, 1789 in (Charles County) Rockville, Maryland. He was seperated from his family at 9 years old when his father back-talked a slave owner and was punished with a hundred lashes and had his right ear cut off. Josiah was owned by slave master Isaac Riley. Riley beat a young Josiah unconscious for having a book of grammar. It was forbidden in those days for a slave to learn how to read. But later on Josiah saved money to buy his freedom. To his dismay he was cheated out of his savings and freedom by master Riley. He then escaped to freedom in Kentucky. Soon many that escaped with him were sold and auctioned off. Then in 1850 in the compromise agreement the Democrat slave states were able to get into the legislation the Fugitive Slave Act which made it possible for Marshal’s to automatically deputize anyone in free states to help apprehend a runaway slave from a slave state. This was a strengthening of the Fugitive Slave Act of 1793 which covered runaway slaves, who sought freedom in free states. So Josiah Henson and his family of two children and a wife trekked 600 miles on foot from Cincinnati to Canada to freedom. That was the only place where a man could be truly free after the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850.
Josiah started a Black settlement in Ontario, Canada with a multi-racial school which was unheard of at that time. He became a minister, author, educator and abolitionist who helped 100 slaves escape to Canada to freedom. He preached all over the U.S. and Europe, even getting a personal meeting with the Queen of England, Queen Victoria.
Josiah also lead a Black Militant Unit in The Canadian Rebellion of 1837-38. The Rebellions of Upper and Lower Canada were against The British Crown and political reform.
The southern slave states could not let the positive heroic legend of Uncle Tom stand. His faithful and brave character in the fictitious book who was beaten by Sambo every night until his death had to be diminished, as not to embolden the other slaves to follow in Josiah’s cavernous footsteps. So they created the Uncle Tom traveling minstrel show. This depicted Uncle Tom as a dumb, ignorant buffoonish character. This show traveled all over erasing the positive image of Josiah the real Uncle Tom. Remember at this time many still were forbidden to read but everyone could understand a traveling minstrel show. That even made it all the more sinister. Feeding falsehoods to and unsuspecting people. And to this day our people do not know Josiah Henson, the real Uncle Tom, educator, minister, author, abolitionist and goodwill ambassador. Do not let them rewrite history. Do not let them tear down his statue.

Are the CDC, local governments or politicians responsible for falsely labeling homicide deaths as COVID-19?
As per the Cedar Rapids Police Department they say the body of Jordan Driver Haynes, was found in a vehicle along I-380 was murdered. The county medical examiners office has identified the body and ruled cause of death a homicide. The circumstances are still under investigation. So if the police find an apparent homicide victim confirmed by the county coroner, how can this person come up on the list as a COVID-19 pandemic victim? This has been happening very often, and has been documented and reported. Family members have relatives die of various illnesses and accidents and then find somewhere that their loved ones death has been listed as COVID-19.
We have to expound on the financial incentives for this fraud. A COVID-19 patient brings $13,000 reimbursement to the hospital from the government. A COVID-19 patient put on a ventilator brings $39,000 from the government. Many hospitals and local governments are running in the red and hemorrhaging funds. In New York City in close to twenty years 16 major hospitals have been closed down. Many blue states are close to insolvency. So the big dollars of the COVID-19 come up may be too sweet for some hospitals and governments to give up. Some doctors have said they have been pressured to label deaths as COVD-19.
So may things about this pandemic situation has not panned out to be what we were sold. The people are skeptical because of prediction after prediction after prediction has been wrong, from the amount of ventilators to the peak of hundreds of thousands dead in a week, to the hospitals being overrun and so on. The so called experts have been, wrong, wrong, wrong. The governors and mayors of blue states seem to relish wielding their draconian dictatorial powers to oppress their loyal subjects unnecessarily. The masses are starting to push back. Now we are having a decline in deaths and infections and an increase in suicides. The tide is starting to turn where the people are saying enough! The virus does not override my constitutional right of freedom to assemble and freedom to practice my religion in my designated house of worship.
The people are saying enough we want our lives back!
