    Remember in 2011 when tens of thousands of Democrats surged on the Wisconsin Capitol building in Madison and physically occupied it for more than two weeks? We were told, "This is what democracy looks like."
    Remember in 2016 when Obama was President and hundreds of BLM blocked interstate highways and violently accosted police (even killing several)? We were told, "To assign the actions of one person to an entire movement is dangerous and irresponsible."
    Remember in 2018 during the Kavanaugh hearings when a mob of Democrats stormed the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, DC, and pounded their fists in rage on the door. We were told, "It's understandable."
    Remember this summer's riots in major cities across the country when groups of Democrats marched in the streets, set buildings on fire, looted businesses, assaulted and even killed bystanders and police? We were told, "These are mostly peaceful protests."
    Remember when Democrats seized several blocks of the Capitol Hill neighborhood in downtown Seattle, declaring it an autonomous zone? Remember the guns and deaths and utter destruction? We were told, "It's a block party atmosphere."
    Remember when a crazed mob gathered after the Republican National Convention and attacked Rand Paul, a sitting U.S. Senator? We were told, "No justice, no peace."
    Remember how police were told to stand down, governors refused to call in the national guard, and Democrats paid bail for violent protesters who were arrested? We were told, "This is the only way oppressed people can be heard."
    I have condemned violent protests and lawlessness every single time they've been reported. I condemn the actions of those who stormed the Capitol yesterday. But I refuse to condemn hundreds of thousands of peaceful protestors because a handful (52 arrested) chose to be lawless and to defy everything the vast majority of the crowd stood for. Conservatives are defenders of the Constitution, the police, and the rule of law. Because a relative few people decided to do something stupid doesn't nullify the concerns of the many.
    The real culprit here? The mainstream media has been telling us for years that violence is the only way people who feel oppressed can be heard, it's the only way to get justice, and this is what democracy looks like. Apparently, a few who were in the crowd on Wednesday listened to them.
    The inflammatory rhetoric of the Left caused this, and it's about time Democrats and the mainstream media took responsibility for dividing Americans and attempting to humiliate those who support the President or any conservative ideals. They have pushed people to the brink, even while claiming, "It's time for unity." It's time for careful reflection and change on all sides. God help us!
    I didn't write this but I agree 100%

    This one to:

    Dave Ramsey hit the nail right on the head! Very well said!
    Dave Ramsey
    “This morning, I realized that everything is about to change. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, lives are never going to be the same.
    I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life so hate-filled that they agree with opinions they would never express as their own. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone.
    You can't justify this insanity. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind.
    We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.
    Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.
    People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.
    Universities that advocate equality, discriminate against Asian-Americans in favor of African-Americans.
    Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.
    Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a violation of THEIR rights.
    People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.
    After legislating gender, if a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.
    It was cool for Joe Biden to "blackmail" the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquiries about it.
    People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.
    Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.
    Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcomed.
    $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.
    If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.
    And, pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us "racists"!
    Nothing makes sense anymore, no values, no morals, no civility and people are dying of a Chinese virus, but it is racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China.
    We are clearly living in an upside-down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong, but killing innocent babies is right.
    Wake up America. The great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, is taking on water and sinking fast.

    And now George Orwells "1984" tops the best seller list.

    Seems more than logical.

    He's a popular financial advice guru, who's main principle is that being free of debt is the foundation of wealth. His signature moment on his radio show—unless it has changed; I haven't listened to him in a number of years—is when callers who have successfully paid off significant debt shout to the radio, "We're debt free!"
    • "An iron curtain has descended across the continent." — Winston Churchill, March 5, 1946.
    • "Are you going to be responsible for the rioting if we hear this case?" — Chief Justice Roberts, who apparently had a secret codicil to his oath of office.
    • "Thieves only carry weapons for self-protection and to provide the householder an incentive to cooperate." — Texas State House Rep. Terry Meza, proposing to bar "castle defense" protection for victims of home invasions.
    • "The way I see it, there's always, c'mon, there's always money. It's there." — Elizabeth Warren, explaining socialism.
    • “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.... We really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” — Saikat Chakrabarti, then AOC's Chief of Staff.
    • "We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them." — CNN's Don Lemon, showing how to stop demonizing people.

    That " free of debt" doesn't last long.

    Why not? In the past year, I have been debt-free and doubled my savings, not even counting the amount I've put into my 401K. HRH, working an entry-level job and paying for her own clothing, gas, and recreation, has amassed over $6000 in savings over the same period. It's about choosing how to live. Granted, I have a marketable skill set, but that, too, was a choice. I worked to pay my way through law school, used my first good-sized fee to pay off my student loans, and, most recently, chose to move into a sector less affected by the vicissitudes of the economy. If I take on any debt, it will be the purchase of a home where the 3 of us can live more cheaply than renting, while building equity for HRH's future. Otherwise, I use credit only as a means of buying safely (mostly online) and tracking expenditures, paying off my cards each month.

    I worked hard to achieve a debt-free state, and see no reason, barring a disaster outside my control, that it shouldn't last a lifetime.

    I've been debt free for 10 years. If I can't pay for it, I don't need it.

    and lost …
    But the Republicans are racist.

    I find that a lot of people with lifetime debt have it because it is their fault. Yep, even low income workers.

    Living debt-free is a choice. There may some rice and beans years while you reverse youth errors but it can be done and in done in a shorter amount of time than you think.

    Frugal living doesn't mean impoverished living. You can still have nice things but not impulsive things. Buy things that last. A $300 dollar coat that will last 20 years is a better buy than a $50 dollar coat that will last one season. Cook your own food. Paint your own house, don't hire it out. Stop browsing for "bargains". You do not need 14 outfits to shop or walk the dog. Groom your own dog. Challenging but not undoable. Several websites have books you can virtually 'check out' instead of buying new.

    There are many ways to economize when saving money.
