You will be free or die... January 7, 2017

Harriet Tubman (born Araminta Ross; c. 1822[1] – March 10, 1913) was an American abolitionist, humanitarian, and an armed scout and spy for the United States Army during the American Civil War. Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and subsequently made some thirteen missions to rescue approximately seventy enslaved families and friends,[2] using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. She later helped abolitionist John Brown recruit men for his raid on Harpers Ferry, and in the post-war era was an active participant in the struggle for women's suffrage.



Many are fascinated and impressed with what amounts to no more than the squandering of vast quantities of resources to irrationally deify and bury rich people. However, the valuable lesson of the ancient Egyptians was their mastery of the science and agriculture which ultimately afforded them their immortalized foolishness.

Similarly women are often appreciated for alluring femininity while the terrifyingly powerful abilities instinctually conferred by motherhood often go unappreciated.

Women's ability to multitask can gestate and raise multiple charges to maturity. Women's two way communication with speechless infants via body language is also hardwired. This later ability means it is extremely difficult to lie to your significant other because when one lies their body language does not match their words.

Yes, mothers do have eyes in the back of their heads which are facilitated by a far greater peripheral vision than men possess. Women can look straight ahead while checking a man out without any thoughts of ever getting caught. My inherit tunnel vision envies this. The success of these abilities is clearly evident in the viral spread of humanity over the entire planet.

Just body language skill and the ability to multitask rings around men has me wondering why most world leaders are not female. Men's mere physical strength advantage does not account for this anomaly and playing silly games with projectiles hardly seems a noteworthy evolutionary event to replace the pragmatic hunting game advantage conferred by tunnel vision.

Perhaps ruling by proxy is the far safer and wise choice. Perhaps women instinctually don't care to subjugate their more critical mission of continually spreading the human species over the earth and possibly even space. Whatever their reasons I am happy to be an old man who has gained some modicum of libido control.
