2020: The year socialism went mainstream

Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has warned that socialism has become more accepted in 2020 and is on its way to becoming the default economic policy for Democratic politicians. The high-profile Republican wrote, “2020 was the year socialism went mainstream.”

Haley goes on to comment on Twitter that socialism is a “dangerous ideology, which has failed everywhere. It has been tried and ruined countless lives.” She goes on to say, “This terrifying trend threatens the future of every American.”

Haley’s comments came amid an ongoing internal struggle for the future of the Democratic Party. While some Democrats have resisted policies typically associated with socialism, those ideas appeared to gain traction during the 2020 elections.

Stock futures were pointing to gains in the market early Tuesday, building on yesterday’s positive momentum after President Donald Trump signed the latest stimulus relief package into law. Yesterday, too, the House voted to increase stimulus checks to $2,000, though it is unlikely that the Senate will also do so.

“The combination of vaccine rollouts, fiscal stimulus, and easy monetary policy continues to create a positive backdrop for equities going into 2021,” said UBS Global Wealth Management’s chief investment officer. “The agreement on a fresh U.S. fiscal stimulus package removes a recent hurdle, and global central banks continue to support the recovery by maintaining (and extending) monetary accommodation.”

Why you should make a to-don't list

A to-don’t list is a unique tool to help you stay focused on the essential things in your life. In essence, it’s a list of tasks you don’t do, no matter what. You delete them or say no when they try to find their way onto your to-do list. The to-don’t list serves as a regular reminder to stop wasting time and refocus on your goals.

Ultimately, your to-don’t list will consist of things you shouldn’t spend time on, yet you lack the discipline to stop doing them. That can range from simple habits that distract you to serious character flaws that need reshaping.

A very well thought out to-don’t list should help you maintain better focus and only perform tasks that create the most outstanding value and remain focused on them at least 80% of the time.


Vegetables are an important part of a healthy and balanced diet, but which ones provide the highest levels of vitamins and nutrients?

Not surprisingly, broccoli is one of the healthiest vegetables you can eat. Since it is packed with vitamins C, K, A, and other important micronutrients, it’s definitely worth sneaking broccoli into recipes and meals as much as possible. To reap the most benefits as possible from broccoli, try eating it raw or steamed instead of boiled.

One vegetable that is incredibly healthy, but it doesn’t get a lot of focus, is the turnip. This vegetable is naturally high in fiber and rich in micronutrients such as calcium, phosphorus, and potassium. With a neutral taste and rich nutrient content, this vegetable should definitely make its way into your diet.  What other vegetables should be a staple in your diet?

They say that those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

And on this day back in 1940, London was in the midst of The Blitz.

During this time, over 10,000 bombs were dropped on London – including the very first incendiary bombs.

The picture above was taken on December 29, 1940, and shows the dome of St. Peter’s Cathedral rising above all of the devastation left in the Germans’ wake.

Here’s what else you need to know about the Blitz on December 29, 1940.
