A philosophy of resentment only holds people back.
On my (Brittany’s) college campus, the largest and most active club was the “Revolutionary Student Union,” also known as the school’s resident Marxists. Even then, I passionately disagreed with socialism. But one thing that struck me was how these students were not only wrong, but seemed deeply unhappy. They always walked into class scowling and were always grousing, not just about the evils of capitalism, but about intractable frustrations and perceived injustices in their personal and academic lives.
I often wondered if there was a connection between the dysfunction in their lives and their socialist ideology.
To these young revolutionaries, every frustration in their lives was someone else’s fault. If they weren’t getting the grades they felt they deserved, some bourgeois professor was to blame. If they didn’t have job prospects that matched their high regard for their own intellects, it must be the capitalist system holding them back. Their tendency was to scapegoat “class enemies,” not only for societal ills but for their own personal problems as well.
By shifting the blame to others, they relieved themselves of responsibility over their own problems. They wasted their time and energy complaining, wallowing in self-pity, and seeking redress, instead of taking ownership of their lives and fixing up their affairs. As a result, their frustrations only compounded.
This attitude also robbed them of one of the great pleasures in life: experiencing empathetic joy in the happiness of others. According to their zero-sum Marxist mindset, the prosperity of others came at the expense of their own prospects. So they resented anyone more successful than themselves. And they became so preoccupied with dragging other people down that they had little energy left over for lifting themselves up.
If my student comrades ever did manage to impose socialism on the country, it would cause deep and widespread misery. And yet plenty of misery in their own lives was already being generated by the mere idea of socialism residing only in their minds.
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!
