I FOUND MY ‘BROTHER’
There are women and men bestowed with the gift to answer the ultimate question. That question is ‘WHY’. They are charged with rendering an answer that can be understood by the most contrary element of our society. Those that foment, spread and traffic in hate. Our Brothers are in need of guidance and this journal will bring forth a multitude of remedies to address the male illness of unawareness. The answer to the ultimate unknowns of behavior and responsibility.
Those of us given this perception and understanding to interpret the unknown and apply the information to the known is the essence of our charge. Thereafter decode the messages for the people who oppose themselves. This decryption is then presented to the people as the explanation of events past, present and future so they may keep updated to the frenetic changes occurring today and those that will arrive soon.
Brothers, this journal is a call to all of you to obtain the knowledge that you lack in every part of your lives. As sons. As brothers. As fathers. As grandfathers. As uncles. As cousins. Ignorance will no longer be tolerated, encouraged or celebrated. As the ‘First Father’ has said in his Holy Bible “let everything be done decently and in order”. Honor and truth will not be perverted anymore. Why? Because as a Black Man I will impart all I have learned and gathered for over 56 years of life in America and around the world to the young coming behind me and my elders above me. Why? Things that now appear as they do will begin to appear as they should be according to what is right? Help me see to it as this mandate has been divinely ordered.
Issue 7: Will Power?
Question? If someone crafts a deceptive narrative that covers a miniscule part of a pressing human issue. Sells it as the be all cause for assorted things that face the majority of adults. Ties it emotionally to why you can’t get ahead in life. Then assigns blame to a political party so you feel good about voting for your own destruction. I’d say that scenario should be played over and over again until somebody realizes they’re getting played. Wouldn’t you agree?
That can be said about tax policy. That can be said about inflation. That can be said about abortion. That can be said about Social Security (even though you pay for that out of your paycheck). By the way you ask most people about Social Security they will tell you it’s an unfunded government program. Really. That’s no joke.
I’ll provide an alternative take on the historical record regarding economic expansion through the decades. Minimum wage was created because like everything human there is an element of evil as God has informed us thousands of years ago. Read Malachi 3:5 (You probably should read it for yourself). Then as America’s economic system of capitalism expanded came the need for affluence for the creators of things. The engineers not unlike the ‘stone carvers’ of ancient Egypt demanded a premium for their skill set. This set off an expansion of the economy. Wages had to follow suit to the higher cost of the goods that were created or they wouldn’t be made right?
Take America circa 2012 or maybe a year or two later give or take. Wage increase movements started to grow. With wage growth the money has to come from somewhere right? I see your hand over there. You’re a smart woman. Correct. The price of the goods sold must go up in order to pay the higher cost of labor right? Why then do millions of people still fall for the ‘arrogance of ignorance’ trap?
My advice to President Biden and his administration is to keep hitting the American economy like a freight train! Don’t even worry about people not understanding how much better their lives are. Democrats give them the health care without the specter of bankruptcy which they rightfully deserve and people still vote them out! Democratic movements (show me a Republican marching for higher wages I dare you) are responsible for wage hikes that are now locked in place. Democrats get voted out of office!
Democrats in the White House literally save the worlds, not only America’s, but the world economy and they get voted out! Democrats have lost their voices screaming through bullhorns about the onslaught against women and all their rights being in jeopardy and they get voted out of office! Oh by the way, Democrats were spot on about the U.S. Supreme Court coming for women. Didn’t matter.
Now I’m a champion for everything that’s good and right first for our planet, and then all of humanity. Human beings and their money wouldn’t matter anyway if there isn’t a planet to live on. Democrats still get voted out for being against destroying the planet. I’m not making this up! Republicans take their marching orders from the rich. Let me ask this question which anyone that has the answer please do not shout it out. I want to call on a Republican voter for an answer.
What rich person offered wage hikes before a union, a strike, or a shortage of skilled labor made them do it kicking and screaming? Give me a name please. Crickets. Then why are you falling for the same trick over and over again? I work as a mental health technician making about $40 thousand a year. I am at 90% percent VA disability. My income is over $60 thousand a year. I’ve just gotten married to a nurse which would probably kick our combined income over $130 thousand a year. I could care less about the cost of anything because I only buy what I eat. I combine trips to the grocery store with other errands. My wife does the same.
Do me a favor people please. Don’t cry them crocodile tears and go vote Republican. The old saying goes ‘never make a quick decision when you’re angry’. Well it should say ‘never make a bad decision when you’re emotional’. If I were the deceivers playing you like a worn out Arthur Catton Lancaster violin, I’d tune up ‘Nearer, My God, to Thee’ for you idiots as well.
The pandemic stimulus package was the sole cause of inflation? Yeah right! Now every billionaire or rich person chiming in crying about that I bet you were steaming mad when ordinary working folks got $1400 that the Republicans could’ve given to them. Tell those billionaires something for me will ya. Tell them to go back to laying on a bed of their money like ‘Scrooge McDuck’ and let people of good conscience fight for everyone else.
Oh, and by the way that violin was played by Wallace Hartley as the Titanic sank. Yeah, let the people, the Democrats, that have steered the ‘Ship of State’ through the roughest of times man the helm. The economy has not crashed in my lifetime. Let me end with something else the Democrats have more than Republicans ever will. The Authorized King James version of the Holy Bible. Proverbs 24:10…If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.
Being strong is sticking with your convictions to do the right thing no matter the naysayer. Being weak is running into the house that is built on sand by the Republicans even after they’ve sold you deceptively on sand being the stronger foundation.
Just make sure the storm doesn’t sweep you out to sea. In the meantime, I’m going to invest in companies that make life jackets. I’m looking up their balance sheets right now.
