Episode 97: “Program Your Life, or Life Will Program You” ~ Les Brown

Β Like so many out there, I too find myself, at times, getting discouraged. I was having a conversation the other day, with a gentleman that most people would probably know of, and he asked me, “Wilk, is it too late?”, meaning, is it too late to bridge this divide, are we so full of hate and animosity for those of differing opinions that it cannot be turned around? I said to him, I wouldn’t be doing the Derate the Hate podcast if I felt it was too late. But like I said, I too find myself, at times becoming discouraged, and even at times feeling almost defeated. Sometimes when I think it may be time to give up, something happens…

My wife and I were having a discussion this week about all that we have going on, and she could tell I was a bit discouraged with certain things. She asked me if I had ever heard of Les Brown? I had not, so she sent me a YouTube Video of his. That 58 minute inspirational video was pure gold. Much of what Les talks about in the video was stuff that I have talked about on the DTH podcast, but his delivery and cadence are incredible.Β  This is a must watch or listen to video if you are unsure of the power of you and your mindset. It also brought to mind for me, Episode 52 of the DTH podcast, so for the first time, I am bringing back a large portion of that episode in this one.Β  Let me know your thoughts on both!

Episode 88: REAL Justice, REAL Solutions, EVERY Black Life Matters… with Kevin McGary

He saw Black Lives Matter (BLM) yucking it up with ANTIFA, having a grand ol’ time while black and brown businesses were burning, and Kevin McGary knew that something had to change. He figured people would see through the facade, but as things calmed down, and some of the noise subsided, people still didn’t get it…
After realizing himself that people were not accepting the reality that BLM was actually against everything that could actually help the black community, Kevin decided it was time for an alternative. The premise was simple, everything BLM was against, (based on their own site) EveryBLM would be for… Things like fathers, family, capitalism, school choice, pro-life, etc. Basically, REAL proven solutions that would actually help the black community. EveryBLM would be the alternative, promoting what is right and righteous.
