The Progressive Watchman: THE HUNT FOR YOUR MONEY 2019

The Progressive Watchman: THE HUNT FOR YOUR MONEY 2019: If you have followed my writings for awhile.  You’ll know I am a fan of cryptocurrencies/Blockchain technology.  These assets have the capa...


If you have followed my writings for awhile.  You’ll know I am a fan of cryptocurrencies/Blockchain technology.  These assets have the capability to level the playing field of the “Have’s and the Have Nots”.  There are two types of cryptos. Virtual store of value coins like Bitcoin which is like a version of digital gold and Litecoin which is like digital silver.  Both of these coins come from the Blockchain. Now the other side of Blockchain are coin applications that actually solve problems or make things more efficient. Coins such as Ripple, Stella Lumens, EOS, NEO, Veechain, Tron, Ontology, Zilliqua. You should have both of these two types of asset classes before mass adoption takes place.  In case you didn’t know Bitcoin and Litecoin are divisible just like a dollar has different denominations like hundreds, twenty’s, five’s and one’s. In addition you can break it down even further like quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies.These are called Satoshi’s. As we get more into a Totalitarian state which is a system of government that is centralized and dictatorial and requires complete subservience to the state..  The government thinks they are like gods where they can intrude and control every part of our lives. When Homeland Security department was created we gave up our rights under the disguise that government is our daddy and protector.
     What Homeland Security really is about is control of the masses.  This week, letters were sent out by the government enforcement agency otherwise known as the IRS to alleged holders of crypto assets.  Originally they tried to force and bully crypto exchanges to give up their customer bases, but they refused. See crypto is a series of keys that cannot be decoded.  So what did they the government do, they did a end around and got Google's, Microsoft and Apples Safari’s browser data because they are popular browsers. That’s why I use browsers like BRAVE and Duck Duck Go and a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to do transactions, and gather information. Big Tech companies like Google, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook invade your privacy and sell all your information plus give it to the government.
     Recently Facebook introduced their crypto coin called Libra and now the governments and central banks like the Federal Reserve and other central banks are shaking in their boots.  Facebook has 2.5 Billion users on a daily worldwide basis and they are trying to have a stable coin which is like a US Dollar or Euro or YEN which is tied into VISA and MasterCard to bypass banks.  The US government has already attacked Bitmex a crypto exchange founded in 2014 by a Black man from the projects in Buffalo NY, now the youngest multi Billionaire on record in the world. Anyway his exchange is in Hong Kong and they messing with him because US Traders use VPN’s to circumvent the tariffs between United States and China to hide their location even though Bitmex won't let US customers trade there. Binance a platform I have used has informed their base in the US that USA customers can’t trade there anymore because of the tariff war between China and USA.

     Here’s the DC gods speaking “This is indeed a national security issue. We will not allow digital-asset service providers to operate in the shadows.” then they stated “very serious concerns that Libra could be misused by money launderers and terrorist financiers.”  Even the Trumpster tweeted and I paraphrase if Facebook wants to become a bank let them get a bank charter. Never mind that Chase Bank is already using their own Crypto just for their boys doing money laundering on their own network. Homeland Security can’t see what they are doing.  Reading between the lines the government wants your to tax you, but right now they can’t figure what crypto is yet because it’s new ground breaking technology. Why else do they hate Libra coin? Because it will be a basket of the 6 most used currencies and will be controlled by a group of 27 companies. Bypassing the government controlled money and cutting out middlemen, Pretty futurist itsn’t it.  Let me dispel the government narrative; 30 Billion in Bitcoin purchases are done on a daily basis by real companies who identify the users everyday and are paying taxes. Which is 30 times the illegal use. What else is the government thinking about? Libra could replace the US Dollar as the world’s reserve currency. Remember all worldwide transactions are in dollars and we get a piece of every transaction. IT’S ALL WAYS ABOUT THE MONEY.  See again in yesterday’s piece called “ Cradle of Civilization A Rebirth”. I said “A Fish Rots From The Head Down” That’s the USA . Remember every revolution we've ever had, The American Revolution, The Civil War its root cause is about the money and taxation. "Down Goes Frazier" as we hit the canvas with a loud thump will repeat. But it’s not to late to get in on the ground floor to level the playing field and bypassing the coming Mark. One last thing steer clear of Facebook’s Libra Coin.

The Progressive Watchman: JEFFREY EPSTEIN FOUND DEAD

Not yet..But as I write this Epstein was found nearly dead with injuries to his neck in his cell at a maximum security center.  Of course authorities are refusing to tell what happened.  We as Black people know the system is rigged.  This man has billions and he can't even negotiate to pay bail with a anchor monitor or with 24 hr security.  He is a political prisoner just like Julian Assange founder of WikiLeaks.  People in the power circles in Washington DC, New York's Wall Street Crowd, and worldwide elites know this man furnished under aged girls and boys to perverts with power and money. I wrote about two years ago called "Pizzagate" where it would eventually come out.  Epstein's list is very extensive as a matter of fact no one knows how he made his billions, that means he operated in the shadows with very powerful people and organizations.
     It's been documented that Bill Clinton has been on Epstein's private 737 THOT jet multiple times and been to his private island multiple times.  High profile Saudi Princes in charge of OPEC oil cartels have been on his island, also the prince of England. Based upon just these three people there is no way this man is not found dead.  Just like the rich boy who leaked the DNC info to WikiLeaks, not a Russian Hack was found shot in the the head at close range and DC police said it was a suicide.
The question remains when and how will Jeffrey Epstein be found dead. Either fake suicide or fellow prisoner kills him.  He will never be allowed to go to trial, He will never be allowed to make a deal.  See the government and other powerful people and organizations doesn't want his list to come out.  You'll be surprised who's a pervert.  Why do you think Julian Assange of WikiLeaks was holed up and he's not even a United States citizen.  Or John McAfee of McAfee founder of the 1st commercial anti-virus software program went underground.  It's because of the dirt they have on very powerful people or organizations.

The Progressive Watchman: CRADLE OF CIVILIZATION A REBIRTH: Africa was the first place where man created and lived thereby branching out to other parts of the world.  It was a place where early invent...


Africa was the first place where man created and lived thereby branching out to other parts of the world.  It was a place where early inventions like fire, literacy, language, time, science, mathematical equations, technology, architecture and trade was created.   Thus the cradle of civilization was Africa, not Greece, Europe, Asia, Mesopotamia, South America  nor any other place where his-story's false narrative has been recorded and taught.  Africa was also a prime location for early trade where gold, silver, iron, copper and agricultural goods and services were born.  With these assets Africa flourished.  I would be remiss to not say this, the original people were created in GOD'S own image and given wisdom and knowledge by GOD since it was the cradle of civilization.
     When Africa is mentioned now its usually has bad connotations.  But China knows the truth that Africa is the cradle of the old and new civilization.  In my piece "A Fish Rots From The Head Down" written in April 2018 I wrote that China wants to re-create the old "Silk Road" trade route also called "One Belt One Road".  This is an ambitious plan by China  to link 70% of the worlds population and 28% of the worlds "GNP" (gross domestic product) by a network of highways, railways and pipelines linking Africa to India to China.  The United States knows this thereby we have enacted tariffs to throw a wrench in the progress.
     Now you have to ask yourself why are the two largest continents getting together? It's easy "FOLLOW THE MONEY", IT'S ALL WAYS ABOUT THE MONEY.  Africa has the most minerals and raw materials in the world.  Here's another kicker, half of the worlds fastest growing economies will be in Africa.  Right now 20 of the fastest growing  economies and populations are in Africa.  These 20 fastest countries are growing at 5% and above.  Whereas here in the USA we're stagnating and Europe is negative. Of course our government stats are fabricated and inflated. By 2030 a mere 10 years from now, 43% of Africans will be considered as middle class.  Africa is considered an economic incubator.  For example Kenya has pioneered a system of mobile payment that's bigger than Apple Pay and Google pay where users use their mobile phones to send and receive cash.  Kenya and Tanzania also boast impressive industries in telecommunications, banking, energy, mining, transportation and agriculture.  It's also kinda ironic that these areas of the world see Crypto/Blockchain as viable economic alternatives to the current system.
     Look at these growth rates right now in 2018/2019. Ethiopia 8.2%; Rwanda 7.2%; Kenya 6.1%; Ghana 8.3% and Tanzania 6.8% and other countries not mentioned.  Based upon these numbers Africa's economic growth rates rival India and China.  One last stat, by 2050 over half of Africa's 2.2 billion people will be living in cities the same as China, and most these young and educated.
     So what's really going on? When China woke up and became capitalist, China chose Africa because of its vast and rich natural resources. China also wanted to diversify from being dependent on the United States  and the US dollar, In case you didn't know all resources in the world are priced in US Dollars, that means the dollar is like MasterCard and VISA and we get a cut on every transaction.  Sweet deal for the United States but not so sweet for the rest of the world. Africa is also close to China.  Africa and China already had history of trade with each other from at least 800 B.C.  Another thing most people don't realize that Antioch  where the word Christians came into being was part of the old original Silk Trade Route before an earthquake destroyed the city.
     Africa and China have the resources, technologies, population to do battle with the United States.  This partnership was in existence long before Trump came into office.  " A Fish Rots From Head Down"  shows the United States short sightness, our prejudices, our attitudes, our disdainment, our arrogance towards people of color just like here in the United States.  In the end what goes around comes around.  In the end Mexicans will take back the stolen states that was theirs from the beginning.  In the end the rebirth of the cradle of civilization will come back and bite the European cave men in the rear end by 2032.  America will not be great again, the new playing field has been leveled you won't get 300 years of free labor again.  In the end the Babylon the great harlot falls.

The Progressive Watchman: THE SELFISH SOCIETY

The Progressive Watchman: THE SELFISH SOCIETY: Today we live in the ME society. Narcissism, selfishness, greed, covetness, proudness, arrogance, heartlessness, concietness, Shinning and  ...


Today we live in the ME society. Narcissism, selfishness, greed, covetness, proudness, arrogance, heartlessness, concietness, Shinning and  Blinging, is at a all time high. Today people buy expensive homes with loans far above their ability to pay. People Bling out their cars, their clothes, their babies and children with top shelf brands for show. In the process they spend beyond their means and many are one paycheck from homelessness which showed during the federal lockout.  Some max out and supplement their income with their credit cards to impress others who don't give a rat's tail about them.  In this facade do you really know what's behind the curtain when the curtain is pulled back? It could be a clunker.  Today people are into their own personal brand, packaging themselves like a product to be sold.  We have people posting everything they do or when they do stupid stuff or do violence on social media sites like YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and SnapChat.  Then out comes the copycats. We think this is all good.  In reality what we as a people are doing is contributing to the rapid destruction of our society.  Who cares all is Bliss.
      In relationships we have two people coming together from different backgrounds with different selfish agendas, and lots of baggage merging as one.  In math 1+1= 2 not 1.  Today  the new math is 1+1+1 = 1.  Maybe that's why divorce is so high or people can't get together because it's not mathematically correct?  Maybe selfishness + narcissism + shining + greed + conceitness + heartlessness certainly does not = 1.  What about people wanting to get married and they stand before minister or judge and state these vows  "for better, for worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health...till death does us part".  Not in today's Me society.  When the going get s tough, Today's  ME society says I'm outta here, adios sucka.  Some people in this Me society say I need to be happy nevermind being as one requires work.  So they say adios sucka.  Maybe with all these factors no wonder people are opting out of marriage and building relationships because it doesn't add up mathematically.  Lastly LOVE is not in the equation and certainly without LOVE a Fruit of the Spirit you have no chance. Even Jesus said "He who does not love does not know God." For God is love.
     Another outcome of the ME society is the lack of empathy, we only care about ourselves and not caring about others.  Yet we claim we are Christians.  This thought process leads to greater economic disparities between the Have's and Have Nots.  Let me say this Government is not the answer, they can't legislate and enforce whats in hearts and minds of humans.  In business companies want loyalty but yet they have no loyalty to their employees.  It's about the bottom line. Even now businesses hardly do pensions anymore preferring to do 401k's because it cost them less money.  Here's another trend with the emergence of Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, Blockchain and the new 5G networks more people will get laid off from all ages and all types of industries.  In politics we have Democrats and Republicans who have the inability to cooperate with each other to solve problems. Our leaders don't care about the general welfare of the country, nor the people in this country, only about their own selfish agendas.  This selfishness and narcissism is the agenda we show our kids, the world and the country.  This is what we export to the world.  Maybe that's why everybody wants to come to America. Eventually when a real crisis hits, the seeds they have sown they will reap.  It only gets worse from here, it will not get better. With all this Me, how can the tide be turned, America will not be great again, that ship has sailed.  This essay taken from "2 Timothy 3:1-9.

The Progressive Watchman: CAN A MAN FIND PEACE?

The Progressive Watchman: CAN A MAN FIND PEACE?: After the fall of man, GOD said that a man would toil/work for the rest of his life.  I understand and accept that part. Jesus/ Yahusha says...


After the fall of man, GOD said that a man would toil/work for the rest of his life.  I understand and accept that part. Jesus/ Yahusha says " my peace I give to you." This peace should overcome anxiety, worries and fear.  Isn't the fruits of the spirit, love, joy, peace, faithfulness, goodness and kindness?  The Word also says " to make every effort to live in peace with everyone."   But a more appropriate question should be asked, where does a Black Man find peace?  Peace is defined  as "freedom from disturbance, tranquility, a time of harmony, a period of non-aggression."  But why, here in America that a Black Man cannot find peace anywhere.   Certainly not in the world, the streets, at work, at home, in church and in relationships.
     Religions answer to this question is GOD will help us if we just pray and live right.  In America no matter how much money you have, how high your standing, no matter what you have, like expensive houses and properties or  expensive cars we have, America will never be impressed or have respect for a Black Man, to them we're just another "N". Don't tell me you don't see color, that's a bold face lie, everybody sees color, it's okay to admit we all see color, ethnicity and cultural differences.  Maybe we have no peace because we don't have respect for each other?  Yes I'm talking about Black people. Certainly our women label us as dogs and some of us rightly fit that description.  Even if you are a Boaz, we get no respect and no peace.  Why is it that the Black Man in  America has no friends or allies on this planet? Not even our African bruhs and sistas from the Motherland have respect for the Black Man in America.   So again where does a Black Man in America find peace?
     Solomon a Black Man and the wisest man in the world stated " it is better to live in a corner of a housetop than to live in a house shared with a quarrelsome wife" later in the same chapter  he states " it is better to live in a desert land than with a quarrelsome and fretful woman,"   But Paul states " let no corruptive talk come out of of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up."  How many women build up their man that he is not discouraged, angry and bitter then the man responds to you in a way you don't like? Is it because  Black women say they don't need a man? Maybe it's the stereotype of 'BlackSuperwoman" and you the Black Woman have drunk the flavored Kool Aid? You know Black Women cover two civil rights basis points, one being Black and the other a woman.  Y'all know y'all get paid less right?  That's a whole another essay.
     It's enough the criminal justice system and the police abuse and kill us. We have white women clutching their purses, or moving to the other side of the street when seeing a Black Man.  The different media formats uses all sensory formats to degrade us.  In employment we're the last hired and the first fired.  Lot's of y'all have the unmitigated gall to say we're lazy and don't take care of business.  In our communities we have single women raising boys which LBJ's planned out Great Society systematically moved the Black Man to the rear in another form of the Black Codes.  I can list countless other things.  Again where does a Black Man find peace? Maybe it's on the football field or on the basketball court?  We even got attacked on the football field where players were kneeling to call attention to social injustice for Black Men in America, but it was hijacked to us disrespecting the flag.  Never mind that this country has been built on the backs of Black men since the American Revolution and every other war fought since.  What about in economics where we were free labor for 300 years, WE MADE AMERICA GREAT!!! YEA I said it.  Yet we get no respect, no love no peace.  Where is the peace for Black Men?  Is it in a bottle or drugs?  Again, where is our PEACE? We're searching.

The Progressive Watchman: ON THE BRINK? CONTAGION

The Progressive Watchman: ON THE BRINK? CONTAGION: In my essay called "CONTAGION" written June 18, 2018 about how the world wide economic collapse would begin in Europe.  With Germa...


In my essay called "CONTAGION" written June 18, 2018 about how the world wide economic collapse would begin in Europe.  With Germany's Deutsche Bank laying off a third of their 90,000 employees the bank runs have begun.  It's being reported that bank runs of  over 1 Billion daily is being withdrawn.  Eventually the cash runs out and they will have to call in their markers from other banks and sell non liquid assets. Then Germany will also go into protectionism to stop supporting other weaker nations in the Eurozone. So you're asking what does that have to do with us here in the United States?  In case you didn't know they are one of the largest multi-national banks in the world.  They operate in 58 countries including here in the United States.  Let me break this down further.
     What most people don't understand is everything is interrelated, just like the ecosystem we live in.  Take nature for example, the water, the water temperature, plants, animals, air, light and soil all work together. ... If the animals that depend on the plants die, any animals that depend on those animals will die also. Ecosystems in nature and our world that we live all work the same way. All the parts work together to make a balanced system.  In economics and finance, a contagion can be explained as a situation where a shock in a particular economy or region spreads out and affects others by way of, say, price, and movements. In this context contagion effect explains the possibility of spread of economic crisis or boom across countries or regions.
     We live in our own ecosystem over here in the USA we don't hear what goes on in other parts of the world, since we believe we are shielded and protected but we are not.  Here's how contagion will eventually spread to the USA. In my dream and essay written March 26,2018, I wrote that sudden waves came from the shore which is backwards and unnatural. Each succeeding wave got bigger and bigger until they overtook us.  See we in the United States believe we are like the ship the Titanic. Wasn't it touted as unsinkable?  Didn't it sink because of what the ship's captain could not see? In case you didn't know all these big construction cranes building tall skyscrapers, and apartment buildings is deep pocket foreign money fleeing other parts of the world partying with the finest girl at the dance the United States.  Same thing happened before the Great Depression began.  No one knows the minute, the hour, the day of "HOUSE OF CARDS" written March 22, 2018"  or "CRASH N BURN" written April 5, 2018 but one thing is certain steam is venting from the cracks in the ground  before the volcanic eruption takes place.

The Progressive Watchman: WAITING ON BOAZ

The Progressive Watchman: WAITING ON BOAZ: I have never written on this topic before but it's been weighing on me.  I've come to the conclusion that women live in a fairy tale...


I have never written on this topic before but it's been weighing on me.  I've come to the conclusion that women live in a fairy tale.  Now I know lot's of you are gonna get mad and quit reading.  It's been said there are three sides to a story .  Your side, my side and the truth, but most people can't handle the truth.  To wait "means to stay in place in expectation of".  But if you wait and not put yourself in position you will be waiting forever because men or not wired like females are wired mentally or physically.  It's been said men are from Mars and women from Venus, so our thought processes are completely different.  Women can not think like a man or act like a man even though a woman may try the bottom line is you're still a woman.  Boaz is an illusion a fairy tale just like living happily ever after.  We live in the real world with real issues. To wait is like the word FAITH, FAITH is an action word.  Doesn't the WORD say faith without works is dead, therefore in this context waiting is action.
     All these relationship gurus are in it for the money and glory using spirituality, tapping into women's emotional nature.  Have you ever wondered why all the Boaz conferences are filled with women?  Where are the men?  Where are the men in the church?  Why are all the pews filled with women?  Isn't Boaz a man?  I would think Boaz would want to be heard. Another question, if all these married Pastors, Pastor's wives and single women's evangelists gurus giving these conferences to single women, where are the results? We do live in a results driven world.  How do you measure results of what they are preaching? I'd venture to bet the results are very low.
     Even if Boaz came around how would you recognize him?  The world didn't recognize Jesus, and they crucified Him.  Why did they crucify Him, because He messed with the Bankers/Pastor's money.  Go back and read your Bible with an understanding.  It states and I paraphrase to the Bible thumpers during the Passover festival,  the radical revolutionary Jesus(Yahushua) came to the temple and turned over the money changers tables (Bankers/Pastors) and the Word says IMMEDIATELY they said He had to die then they started plotting to have Him offed.   Here's something else to ponder, Jesus and His movement was radical and revolutionary not passive, how else would thousands start following Him.  What voice are you truly listening too?   Your Pastor is married, the Pastor's wife is married whose on one side of the fence and doesn't understand your singleness, or the single relationship guru who can't find a mate, but yet they can give advice, again three separate voices, in reality are they more spiritual than you?  Do you really know what they do behind closed doors? You'd be surprised they are human too!!!
     So while you're waiting on your Boaz what do you do?  Another thing, you bring up the scripture "He who finds a wife finds favor with the Lord." The key word again is find, which in this context is an action word, that means you have to put yourself out there to be found.  Let me put this out there , nothing in life is easy, even though we live in the new microwave era, but yet man's mind is still medieval and barbaric, find means work so you have to navigate treacherous waters. So now I go to WHAT PORCH DO YOU STAND ON?  some of y'all who are truly spiritual will get it from the scene in John 5:2-15 of the impotent man at the Pool of Bethesda.  What ledge or porch do you stand on? Do I have the answers unequivocally no, but I do know this, all these voices and experiences in our lives are loud distraction noises, therefore it confuses your mind from all the clutter and baggage that you are carrying around in the battlefield of your mind.  So again what porch do you stand on? You need to know.
     Here's something else I hear.  "He has to have a heart for God.  Wait a minute the average man is simple.  We're not quoting scriptures all day, praying all day, when we get up we're trying to make it and get it from all the mess that floats around us.  Life's hard even when you are prayed up.  Even your Pastor doesn't quote scripture and pray all day.  Even if a man says he does this all day he's running game and  you wouldn't want him or her anyway.  Here's another thing these gurus who say they waited before having relations, don't live in the real world, they are so heavenly good that they are no earthly good,  Maybe they waited because are not sexual beings, or they are on the down low or gay, or they have issues in that department either physically or mentally from all the clutter, baggage and hangups in their minds.  Therefore all that mess and waiting will carry over into their marriage and this relationship is doomed from the start, sexually frustrated in a sexless marriage.  Newsflash real men and women are wanna get broke off, that's how GOD made us. Now that doesn't mean just because you had sex means your relationship is doomed and you're going to hell.  In a real relationship there will be three T's, Talk, Time and Touch which you have to have, which brings on honesty and openness, recreational companionship and Trust. Next up all these lists that men and women have are unrealistic.  You're never gonna get 100% of what's on your list, the best you're gonna get is 80% but you're waiting on the other 20%.  In the meantime 80% just exited to the left because of the clutter, baggage and hangups in your war zone mind Mr. and Ms. perfect.

Poker is a game to win money by capturing the pot which contains bets of various players during the hand. Players try to see who has the best hand or give the impression that their hand is the best and try to get the other players to fold are abandon their hands.  Well the world and our own DEEP STATE is playing poker with the TRUMPSTER.  militarily economically and politically. Just like in the movie "Training Day" Denzel Washington says " King Kong ain't got nothing on me" that's the Deep State's attitude with the Trumpster but ask him if he cares what they think or what he says, unequivocally hell to the naw naw. At least you know what he thinks as opposed to playing games and stabbing you in the back while you're not looking.
  In a lot of ways the Trumpster is like the Dallas Cowboys either you like him or hate him there's no in between. Well the cards maybe starting to flow to the Trumpster against the Deep State and the World.  Lots of things have changed in the last 4 months since the Mueller Report.  Even Nancy Pelosi backed down on border funding, she's even ruled out impeachment angering people in both parties. Recently the Deep State in their lust for war had our own drone shot down and put a bomb on the side of an oil tanker in the straits of Humoz and blamed it on Iran.  They thought that the Trumpster being a hothead would start a war but he called off the attack at the last moment.  Now Trump is doing something no other president has ever done go to North Korea. Next up Xi of China and our tariff war and Putin of Russia.  Wanna bet the Deep State is in a conundrum as they plan their next move the imploding of the US and worlds economies.

The Progressive Watchman: 4TH OF JULY ANOTHER BIG LIE

The Progressive Watchman: 4TH OF JULY ANOTHER BIG LIE: Today the 4th of July is a fun joyous day.  The place is running over with family and friends.  There is laughing eating, card playing, drin...


Today the 4th of July is a fun joyous day.  The place is running over with family and friends.  There is laughing eating, card playing, drinking, swimming and dancing going on.  Today I passed by a church in my hood and the neon sign read Happy Independence Day.  WOW!  July 4th Independence Day is just another lie just like there is no person names Santa Claus who drops off presents if you're naughty or nice.  Actually July 2nd is the actual date that the 2nd Continental Congress met in Philly and approved the Declaration of Independence and the edited version was done on the 4th of July.  If you know your history we were chattel which is property for those who don't know.  We weren't even a whole person, we were considered as three fifths of a person.  We're celebrating that slavery was okay by our government.
     When the Declaration of Independence was signed it was signed by 56 white men of which 27 were slave owners, slave investors or slave shippers.  Even the Governor of Virginia signed a bill to encourage white men to join the revolutionary army by offering one "healthy sound Negro" as compensation.  Nor does our history books mention Crispus Attucks a Black man who was the first to die in the Boston Massacre in an event that started the violence and revolution against Great Britain or that he was a professional free seaman for over 20 years.  Does our history books mention the 5,000 Black soldiers who bravely fought in the American Revolution or the fact that George Washington initially didn't admit Black soldiers until he saw how they fought and kicked butt.  The American Revolution war theme was "No Taxation Without Representation" but wait that theme is still going on today whether you are Black, Brown or White.
     Today all people regardless of color or ethnicity in many respects are still fighting for the same ideals that the American Revolution was fought for. The reality is a small group of lawmakers still believe that they are like petty gods and it's their job to control how we live, do business, how we spend our money, what we put in our bodies, what we do to our bodies and where we can travel.  They control what we say, write, what we read, then they invade our privacy.  They have the gall to make a person get a license to braid or cut hair in affect they have their hands in everything we do, plus we have to ask them for permission for about everything we do. Is this freedom? I don't think so.
     There will be no uprisings, everyone seems to be completely complacent in the illusion of freedom.  As a nation we have traded liberty for dependence on government as our daddy and taxation without representation.  What's next the new Totalitarian State? Just something to think about as I watch the beautiful fireworks.
