The Nigerian Doctor Who Single-Handedly Tackled the Whole NFL, by Davin Michael Stedman

Ancestors: John Belushi, by Davin Michael Stedman

Did you know Belushi was an All State linebacker in Illinois? That partly explains why he was a ‘fat man’ doing back flips on stage at 30 like he was on the Chitlin Circuit.

If we were all on the inside, they would light a match on the outside, by Davin Michael Stedman

BITCOIN CRASH: I was just telling someone yesterday, that if I had anything that gained 5 times it’s value I would sell half of it, and see what happens with the rest.

Even the Robots Say They are Woke: A Comprehensive Guide to Reading An Old Ass Book, by Davin Michael Steadman

Books are powerful, but it’s really how you use them that counts.

I am no Warmonger but I love the message of Art of War, because its great theme is that best move on the battlefield is to never have to go to the battle field.

This Too Shall Pass: 72 hours later, Aliens are Still Old News, by Davin Michael Stedman

If Extra Terrestrials took a knee during the National Anthem, maybe more Americans would care that the Department of Defense confirmed the existence of UFOs via The New York Times.

A Relevant Defense of Paying for Investigative Journalism, by Davin Michael Stedman

Articles like this one, are why paying $20 a month for The New York Times is a nice investment. Maybe the news we get for free is typically hot garbage for primarily that reason.

There are two things to never ever forget about America: What America is about, and what it’s supposed to be about.

You forget either one of those facts, and it’s dangerous, and so are you. I know it’s ethically and technically back pedaling, but for practical purposes can we just meet in the middle?
