Af, America, and Funny: Bout near tarred a you, boy! kentuckwitch: missmeanest: hubbabubba-overlord: discoursegrips: cistrendered: democratic-bias: electoralcollege: trashgender-garbabe-nova: ladygolem: probablyasocialecologist: https://twitter.com/baldinternetman/status/793470278953238528  Funny enough, there’s a long history of worker’s struggle in the Appalachians and South. Redneck Revolt is a good group organizing in these areas around this identity and history. Yeah regions where mining, agriculture, and similar industries are dominant tend to have a history of socialist organizing and labor agitation, funny how that works i love how many people are commenting on this basically saying it’s an oxymoron for rednecks to be communists like… in what universe is it an oxymoron for… actual poor and working-class people… to be invested in an ideology movement that centers around working-class/labor struggle… lmao ???? literally the only reason why there has been a shift in later years is cus of fear mongering to the point where capitalist criticism has become a taboo even for lower class poor people. like many the southern states are some of the poorest states in usa?? “Let’s show these fascists what a couple of hillbillies can do!”  -Woody Guthrie coming from  a non-informed point of view i feel like once again this is Reagan’s fault because he targeted workers unions a good deal…  People are saying its a oxymoron because “redneck” is usually synonymous with “racist/stupid af” in america. And “racist/stupid af” in america tends to steer very far right. But there is a actually a whole population of “redneck” that isnt racist at all. They’re actually pretty well educated, theyre just poor and do poor people stuff. They’re the ones who end up introducing black people to white people shit. Like moonshine, mudding and camping. Theyre a trip to hang around. Theres actually a lot of overlap in the “redneck” and the “hood” culture (large tight knit families, general disdain for authorities, love of bbq…etc), but the rich white people in power dont want people to know that because if the all the poor people reguardless of color realize they have shared interests band together and raise hell. Its over for the 1%. So they try their hardest to emphasize and exaggerate the cultural differences, in hopes of convincing the low income disenfranchized whites to vote right. I LOVE capitalist critical Appalachian culture. One of the first things i learned that fueled my interest was the origin of the word ‘redneck.’ Coal mining was HUGE from the mid 1700s to the early 1900s in states like Virginia and Pennsylvania as coal was a primary source of fuel for a lotta shit. Unsurprisingly, mine owners were capitalist pigs and exploited the hell outta coal miners. Like, paying them by the pound of coal they brought in rather than by hours worked, paying them in vouchers that could only be used at the store owned by the mining company, and offering no kind of health assistance when workers would inevitably succumb to illness and injury caused by the work they did. So miners began to unionize in the mid 1840s. To show solidarity and to make their employers take notice, unionists would wear red bandanas around their necks. And thus, the term ‘redneck’ was coined to describe the union supporters who eventually dismantled a lot of the exploitive practices used by the coal industry. Love these! Just discovered the hillbilly leftie podcast the Trillbilly Worker’s Party, and I am so excited to see more leftist organizing in these parts. We have an amazing history of labor struggle, and a fair amount of labor wins, in this region.

Bad, Food, and Hello: Lets raise $250 for North Koreon refvaees retvgees ask-north-korea: ask-north-korea: ask-north-korea: ask-north-korea: ask-north-korea’s Refugee Fundraiser OOC;; Hello everyone! It’s been a few months since I’ve opened this blog and you guys have been more supportive than I could ever imagine. I’m really surprised by how many people have complimented me on my OC and the information on this blog. However, I said in the beginning that I wanted to do some tangible good, so I’m going to use this blog to try and do that now. As we go into the New Year, we can collectively help someone else get a new start. So, I’ve set up a Liberty in North Korea (LiNK) fundraising page, the link to which can be found in my blog description (sorry for not putting it here but tumblr won’t show posts with external links in the search!). Our goal is to raise $250 in two weeks! (so by Jan 8!) According to LiNK, $250 is what it costs them to “provide food, clothing, and other necessities during [a refugee’s] journey to safety.” If just 1/3 of the people following this blog donate $1, we can easily reach that goal. You can even donate anonymously if you don’t want your name shown on the page! I know people can be strapped for cash this time of year, so don’t feel bad if you can’t donate! You can still reblog this post to help more people see it! #you know what would be awsome#if the hetalia fandom decided to all raise money for NK refugees#and like everybody got into it#and we all helped out#that would be nice#probably not going to happen tho Tags via @cassy-cass-can but yes this is what I am going for! We’re still just a little under halfway to the goal. The hetalia fandom is smaller than it used to be but if we band together we can still do some good! It only takes a little pitching in from those who are able, even just a dollar! We’re now at $138.03, just over half way! Keep it up! Don’t forget to keep spreading this! We have until Jan 8th and we’re still hovering at that halfway point.

Mediocre, Memes, and Working Out: A BAR OF IRON COSTS $5, MADE INTO HORSESHOES ITS WORTH IS $12, MADE INTONEEDLESITS NORTH IS $3500, MADE INTO BALANCE SPRINGS FOR WATCHES ITSWORTH IS $300,000 YOUR OWN VALUE IS DETERMINED BY WHAT YOU ARE ABLE TO MAKE YOURSELF IN STAG RAM CLEVER INVESTOR It's not going to work. - Most new businesses fail within 3 years. - Play it safe and get a "real" job, real estate is too uncertain for you to make a "real" living. - You don't have any money, connections, or resources...there is no way you will be able to compete with the "big boys" that have deep pockets. - You look too young...no one will take you seriously. - What you are trying to do is not possible...you can't flip houses with no money down. - You can follow your dreams someday...right now you need to buckle down and be responsible. - You're totally screwed if this doesn't work out. - THESE ARE SOME OF THE BULLSHIT THINGS MY CLOSEST FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS SAID TO ME WHEN I FIRST STARTED MY REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT COMPANY 11+ years ago. That company has spawned into 3 other successful companies. - Now: 1) I employ over 70 people. 2) My dad works for me. 3) I have complete time freedom to do what I want. 4) I am financially independant. 5) I take 2 months of vacations each year to the best resorts on the planet. 6) I hang around millionaires, one billionaire, movie stars, and other successful people of my choosing. 7) I help others break free from the bullshit stories society has pounded down their throats since they were born. NEVER let anyone label you...or convince you that your dreams are too far fetched or unreachable. Use their doubts as motivation to prove them all wrong. Quietly buckle down and work relentlessly towards your goals. ACTION is the only currency that produces results in business. Eliminate your excuses...wage war on your fears...and crush mediocrity with your boldness. NOW is the time to create your legacy through bold and decisive action. - We are the strongest family on Instagram...let's band together and support each other until we are all eating at the same table.
