    Cleopatra, Catherine, Jackie, And Yoko: Their True Stories

    Cleopatra, Catherine, Jackie, And Yoko: Their True Stories

    Women. We really get the short end of the stick don’t we. And it’s nothing new. In fact there are women all throughout history who could tell all kinds of tales of when the odds were stacked against them. Or when history completely ignored them. Or when society made them out to be the villain. Or, when nobody believed them. Well kitty cats, today we’re going to talk exactly about those kinds of stories.  We’ll be focusing on just four women: Cleopatra, Catherine the Great, Jackie Mitchell, and Yoko Ono. We’ll talk about these women's true stories, and not the way history has retold them.

    Diving Into The Dark Web: Dark History of Silk Road

    The internet isn’t really that old. But that doesn’t mean that it hasn’t already started to gather its own dark history. I mean we’re talking about a whole branch of the internet literally called “Dark Web.” And there was one site in particular that basically made the dark web the mainstream place for drugs, fake ids, and murder for hire. Today we’re going to talk about the Silk Road. The website that single-handedly validated bitcoin and laid the foundation for dark websites we still see in action today.

Not only are we going to talk about all the ways Cannabis has benefited society throughout history, but we’ll also talk about the group of villains who made it their mission to make Cannabis illegal.

    Is College Even Worth it?: The Dark History of Student Loans

    Like pretty much everything we talk about, Student Loans started out as a great idea.  A way to ensure education for all. A way to advance America in the Space Race. And a way to promise citizens a brighter future. But as we’ve seen time and time again, with money on the table, student loans got dark, and FAST. Today we talk about how student loans came to be, how the evolved, and how they came to be something that plagues nearly 46 million Americans today.

I NEED TWO A WEEK

ReaganSylvia ,

Thank you for using your platform to speak out!

I always loved Bailey Sarian, since my sister introduced me to Murder, Mystery, & Makeup! I’m so happy that she’s using her platforms to speak out! ❤️❤️❤️

Don’t defend a woman who supported a man known for abuse

Little else to say here except if Yoko was a TRUE humanitarian she wouldn’t condone Lennon’s behavior. Humanitarianism isn’t about money and she was/is? You may do good for others but if you support the abuse towards one you do NOT earn honor. Do better, Bailey, than support/mention/honor/confirm/reward that woman. BTW, I am not a Beatles fan.
