Conservative icon Ronald Reagan is accused of signing the biggest tax increase in American history: $85.3 billion! This 1982 move isn’t usually associated with his great legacy. Raising taxes usually means job producers horde assets; hide them...

    The old Black identity doesnt describe me/My color is Bold/My race Humanity/My creed Liberty-NOT blame Whitey #tcot Freedom Verse via Twitter – Cap Black, The Hood Conservative    I grew up having to defend my Blackness from primitive White racists in my home town. The only definition I’ve ever accepted of me is my own- NOT what others attempt to impose.The lastthing I ever wanted to be was a chocolate colored reflection of their blind bias. I knew the identity I was born into was formed from a time of forced conformity. It’s not a free orientation. As...
