English lesson 55

“What were Washington’s arguments against the slave system?”

Slaves did not have any education at all when they worked for their masters at the plantations.  Even if they did get educated it was not that much at all.  Slaves were often beat for doing something wrong, but when slavery ended in the 1870’s, blacks then moved to cheap parts of towns, and cities, and villages.

Booker went and lived in West Virginia with his father.  He work in the salt furnaces to help support his family.  His brother also worked in the salt furnace, and so did his father.  The crates/kegs that his father was assigned to was #18.  He then asked his mother to get him a book.  She got him one that was for kids in elementary school.  It taught the alphabet and numbers.  He did not know any black that could read, and he was to timid to ask the american people how to read.

His father then put Booker into the coal mine to mine for coal for the salt furnaces to operate.  When he was in the coal mines one day, he overheard two people talking about a school for black people to go and get an education.  The school’s name is HAMPTON UNIVERSITY.

Most schools back then did not allow blacks to learn at all.

Booker T Washington was born in Hale’s ford, Virginia April 5, 1856.  He did not know his father when he was on the plantation, he had a sister and a brother and his mother.  As a boy on the plantation all he had to do was run water out to the men in the field, and to ride the corn to the mill.  There is probably more than this but that was some of his jobs.  He did not like to take the corn to the mill which was about 3 miles away.

Usually on the way to the mill the corn would fall off the horse.  Because of his age and size he could not pick up the bags himself.  He would often wait for someone to pass by, and ask them to do it.  Well he waited he would cry.  When he got to the mill and back to the plantation, it was well into the night.

His mother was a cook.  Not just for their small family, but for the entire plantation.  So she would often arrive home late at night.  One time she actually got a chicken and cooked it for her children to eat.

Most of the time the blacks would hear about how the war was going on before the white people did.  After the war, they went to west virginia.

Booker graduated from Hampton, and help both of his brothers to get through school.  The three of them then went and found work.  That is as far as I have read in the book so far.

Business Lesson 55

“What can I cut out of my weekly schedule in order to increase my efficiency?”

I could cut out robotics to help free up some time and some space in my week.  Programing the robot is not that difficult, but uploading the program to the robot is.  I have tried many times to upload the program, but it dose not work at all.  The program is not the problem, but there is something on the computer that dose not allow the program to get downloaded to the robot.

I do have lots of time after school that I don’t use at all.  I could put that time to good use.  I could also give up reading other peoples posts, but I wont.

Where I live now, I don’t have to mow the lawn, because we are just renting for now.  The winters over here are short, and the snow just melts away.  But back in Canada, me and my brother shoveled snow, and we made a small business out of it.  In the fall me and my oldest brother would go on the roof to clean out the gutters.  We would get payed for what we did.

In the summer of 2014, me and my oldest brother took out and entire tree stump.  This was not a very big one nor was it a very small one.  It took use about 6 days to get the entire stump out.  This was just with a axe and some (lots) of water.

Later that same year me and my older brother took out two more stumps in the backyard.  These stumps where smaller than the other stump which I help my oldest brother a few months before getting out of the ground.  We took them out in about 2 days.

Just to tell you, that we had to dig around the stump, than cop the roots, and then rip out the stump, and then cover the hole with the dirt we got from the stump spot.  So in that time I have work more than most people my age have.  People who go to public schools.

In the year of 2011 my grandma, and grandpa came over to visit.  They live in South Africa just to let you know.  So for them to come was pretty nice.  During their stay we removed a large tree stump.  The tree was a crab apple tree.  Crab apples are sour, and small.  They are about the sizes of cherry’s.

My dad got a chainsaw and cut the tree down to the ground, leaving about 4in from the ground.  We started by digging around the tree stump, to the roots.  At the roots we took the axe and started to cop roots about 7in in diameter.  Once you cut all of the roots near the surface of the soil, you have to go to the roots under the tree stump.  They are usually thin roots that were about half a in thick.  But once we got rid of all the small roots, there was on large root that was from the middle of the stump to the ground that was covering it.

I have told you some stories of what I have done in the summer with my time, instead of wasting it.

Lesson 50 english

“Has any piece of literature affected you in a major way? If so, explain how. If not, explain why not.”

No.  I don’t read much at all.  The only time I do really read is in the summer and the school literature.  I have read all of the fablehaven books and two of the Farworld books.  Fablehaven was a good series, my favorite character is still Seth.  Seth always gets himself and others into trouble, but he is still the hero on the 5th book.

Business lesson 50

“What was the 20% of this book that has influenced me most?”

80/20 rule was that 20 percent of what you do accounts for 80 percent of the profit.  You need to focus on the 20% of your best customers to get 80% of your profit.  You get 16X more if you follow the 80/20 rule.

Get rid of the useless things in life, and focus on the people that you hangout with more than the people you don’t.  The people who work hard, and are smart should be planning out the battles.  The people who are lazy and stupid, can keep there jobs.  The people who work hard, but are stupid should get fired.  The people who are lazy and smart should be put at the top.

How they tried to cheat Hillary in.

Last night I noticed that the globalists tried to cheat Hillary in.  HERE is how.

California had no one voted for it.  Yet they just gave 55 electoral votes the her.  Hawaii was the same, no votes and they just gave it to Hillary.  Oregon had not many votes, and Hillary won that stat to.  The results were at about 20%.  What was going on?  People complained about their votes being changed to Hillary, when they voted for Trump.

Hillary said that Trump supporters are violent: HERE IS THE VIDEO

Here are Hillary supporters when she lost the presidential election: HERE IS THE VIDEO.

(The supporters started to swear just to let you know)

There has also been threats on Donalds life.  Click here

Now you know why Hillary should not be president.

Hillary has about 28% of the American country with her and Trump has about 55%.
