Seinabo Sey - I Owe You Nothing

Cut my own hair yesterday!

I used the instructions from this website: http://sherylcanter.com/wordpress/2009/09/easy-way-to-cut-your-own-hair-in-a-curly-bob/
It only took about 10 minutes! I saved a ton of time and money and I won't go back to a salon. Ever!

(I'm also growing out the grey. I'm at about the 4 week point.)

Do you cut your own hair too?

Where are the Evangelicals in Pittsburgh?

After I read this thread https://www.democraticunderground.com/100211339086 I was really proud of our Muslim citizens for effectively saying,

"My faith is so strong that I am prepared to put my life on the line so that you may practice yours."

Where are the Evangelicals? Anybody heard anything from them? Because they are far more likely to be able to protect a synagogue without becoming a target themselves...

Stevie Wonder - Superstition Live on Sesame Street

I ran across this this morning and it restored my faith in humanity for a minute.

Love this comment, "I was a remarkably white-trash Nebraska farm child when this episode blew my mind and reassembled it in better condition. One of the seminal moments in television history."

That kid in the red sweater was into it.

A Midterm Reminder: Don't Make Colin Kaepernick's One Big Mistake


Kaepernick is right that neither the Democratic Party nor Republican Party is perfect or has been ideal for the advancement of rights for black Americans. Each party has a history of supporting racist policies that have hurt countless people, as well as implementing a drug war and criminal justice tactics that have done the same. Thatís been true since the founding of this country. It is true even today.

But it is also true that as of this moment, the parties are worlds apart. One is much more likely to push forward the kinds of policies Kaepernick, Black Lives Matter and other racial justice proponents crave, while the other elected a man who ran on open bigotry to win his partyís nomination, then the White House. That does not mean black people should rely solely upon political actors to get us closer to a state of equality. That would be a foolish bet, of that Kaepernick is correct. Still, it makes no sense to throw the baby out with the bath water. Until we see massive change from the GOPóand I mean massiveóit is clear the Democratic Party is more likely to at least attempt to enact needed change.

From the comments: "Itís funny... Iím still kinda looking at Kap right now, like alright dude, Iím not watching the NFL because of the way you were treated by the league. That was some hot BS. So are you gon vote this time, orrrrr...?"

(The Root is doing some great GOTV essaying, addressing the real reasons why Millenials might not vote and why they should.)
