If society collapses, do you have the medical supplies you need? Check out “The Medic,” or as I like to call it, the Big Daddy of first aid kits.
The much anticipated Read Across America Day came and went without much fanfare as the company in charge of Dr. Suess’ legacy caved to cancel culture. Six books have been pulled from the catalog and will not be sold furthermore due to insensitive material. Ironically, Read Across America Day was created to honor children’s literacy and the iconic author, whose birthday was also March 2.

In a statement, Dr. Seuss Enterprises announced: “These books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong.”
Educators and schools across the nation contributed to this latest bout with hysteria – this time over books with characters of all sizes, colors, shapes, and questionable species – which also describes today’s far-left progressives. Dr. Seuss Enterprises worked with educators and experts to review its catalog to come up with a plan to erase a racist past. The panel of experts helped Dr. Seuss Enterprises in deciding to end publication (among the publishers are Random House and Vanguard Press) and licensing of the books.
Did The Cat In The Hat Go Splat?
The following tomes that seemingly hurt some green, blue, or puce folks have been sent to the burn pile:
- And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street
- If I Ran the Zoo
- McElligot’s Pool
- On Beyond Zebra!
- Scrambled Eggs Super!
- The Cat’s Quizzer
What did they do to require the liberal cleansing of late? Well, on Mulberry Street, there is a Chinese restaurant featuring a man partaking in a bowl of rice, and the line: “Chinaman who eats with sticks.” Oh, the horror. Or it may have been the illustration of the Chinaman with slanted eyes that blew up commerce on Mulberry Street for good.
If I Ran the Zoo has two black men wearing what appear to be grass skirts with their hair tied above their heads. But in context with the wild and wooly characters in all Seuss books, it’s a non-starter for fans.
Oh, The Woke Don’t Get The Joke They Wear Like A Yoke
What was meant to be the Seuss organization’s woke spanking has become a bonanza of profit for the unsuspecting capitalist. After Mr. Biden signed the National Read Across America Day proclamation that excluded Dr. Seuss for the first time, the books that have been pulled from the catalog shot up in value.
Build your own med-kit by filling it with various Med Packs of your choosing. You know what you need.
Amazon warned buyers that four of the books were out of print with “limited availability” and listed a price tag from $920.99 to $4,500.
On eBay, an auction for McElligot’s Pool began in February with a starting bid amount of $4.44. This one-volume has skyrocketed to well over $900 at the time of this writing. As one might imagine, collectors are quite pleased with the latest go-’round of woke hysteria.
Mr. Biden is the first president to snub the contributions to children’s literacy by Dr. Seuss. Although there have been whisper campaigns by extreme leftist educators for years, it wasn’t really mainstream until First Lady Melania Trump attempted to gift Dr. Seuss books to Cambridgeport School in Cambridge, MA. Liz Phipps Soeiro, a library media specialist at the school, said she didn’t “lack resources” and that Dr. Suess’ “illustrations are steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes.” She then chided the ignorance of the Trump administration in a long, drawn-out rant. She may have forgotten that her idols, President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama, were Seuss fans – demonstrating their respect every year of the Obama administration.
In 2016, the president opined that Seuss was “one of America’s revered wordsmiths’ who used his incredible talent to instill in his most impressionable readers universal values we all hold dear.”
As Cindy Lou Who might say, “the Grinch better not give an inch,” when the woke folk attempt to pinch a beloved Christmas story.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
When preparing for societal collapse, don’t forget the water!
