Uncle Tom - see it now

As soon as I saw this headline, "'Uncle Tom' Blacklisted by Hollywood", in The Daily Signal this morning, I went to Amazon Prime Video and began watching it.

Do you know these names: Booker T. Washington? Larry Elder? Thomas Sowell? Herman Cain? Walter Williams? Col. Allen West?

If you are an Amazon Prime member, it's free; if you are not, it's worth the rental price ($3.99). Gather your family around, turn off the cell phones, and watch this 1¾-hour documentary. Tell your kids to take notes. Take notes yourself.

Better yet? Buy it for $9.99 and refer to it often.

Can you afford this?

Parents, read this article.

Now is the time for a serious conversation with your children about whether you, and they, can afford the announced policies of the Biden Administration.

What are your kids learning in Richland 2 schools? Do you know? Find out.

It's too late not to vote for Joe Biden. But you, and other parents around the country, can still affect decisions being made in Washington, D.C. by constant contact with your elected representatives in Washington. This means mail, email, phone calls and personal visits - telling them what you want, what you expect, and then holding them accountable.

It starts with the $1,400 top-up to the last coronavirus stimulus award. Now there is talk about even more money to families. But there is no talk about how all the "free stuff" is going to be paid for.

A strong economy is supposed to result in higher employment, and more people working should mean more taxes being paid in. That's more taxes being paid in by the working people, not sitting back and soaking "the rich" with higher taxes.

Right now your kids, and their kids, and their kids, and their kids will be the ones paying for all the "free stuff" being passed out. 

It ain't "free".
