Nice hair, Dude..

MIssissippi is NOT Alabama

Alabama DID select a democrat, BUT the candidate was still a white man..

They had a white man (Moore) who was basically an admitted pedophile... and "the other guy"

Jones was not running for a full 6 yr term, so it was easier for republicans to support him, knowing that in a few years, they would/could remove him..

Had Jones been a black man, Moore would have won.


The "south" is still the south

Do voter purges affect white voters??? probably not so much.

Young black men rarely make it to adulthood without police contact that can render them voteless..

Secretaries of state/governors/state legislators tend to be republican

Republican vote-meisters are not even trying to be deceptive these days.. We learned that waaaaay back in (Florida) and just before the 2000 election..

Got a "non-Amuuricun" sounding name ? you're off the rolls... Cuban names were probably safe, since back then they still voted republican, but first names of non white constituents are pretty easy to flag for "disposal"...especially if they are registered as democrats..

What's even scarier now is that Trump has dragged all the closeted racists down from the attic and has placed them front & center...bellowing their nonsense loud and proud

I need help...

My sons want to get me a "cleaning lady"..

Since I am alone now, and hate to clean I am ok with the idea, but I don't want to use a "service" that I pay big bucks for and the actual cleaner gets a pittance..

Anyone here have hired help?? Is $15 an hour an okay wage? How do I handle the FICA thing?

I only need someone to clean one bathroom (No one uses the other 4)

Only vacuum in two rooms

light mopping kitchen,den,hallways, dining room

Three guest rooms are rarely used so they remain closed up..

minor dusting..

I think 2-3 hours every other week should do the trick..

Should I use Craig's list or run an ad??

I have asked around, but since we were new to WA, I don;t know that many people...

It's hard to believe that my husband died a month ago already.. He used to help a lot.. Ever since I had my 2 strokes in 2014, I still get a little light-headed bending down, so he did the "low stuff"..

I had to call the trash company to figure out which can was recycle and which was trash.. Never needed to know before..

Sigrid Johnson Was Black. A DNA Test Said She Wasn't.

This is such a cool story..How an only child found a family after age 65


The surge in popularity of services like 23andMe and Ancestry means that more and more people are unearthing long-buried connections and surprises in their ancestry.

Three years ago, when Sigrid E. Johnson was 62, she got a call from a researcher seeking volunteers for a study on DNA ancestry tests and ethnic identity. Johnson agreed to help.

After all, she and the researcher, Anita Foeman, had been pals for half a century, ever since they attended the same elementary school in their integrated Philadelphia neighborhood, where they and other black children were mostly protected from the racism beyond its borders.


Johnsonís father, a chauffeur who later became a superintendent at a housing project in North Philadelphia, had a golden-brown complexion. Her mother, who said her own father was a white Brit and her mother was half African-American and half Native American, was light-skinned. People sometimes mistook Johnsonís mother for white, and when she applied for seamstress jobs at department stores in the 1920s and í30s, she chose not to correct them.


All Trumpie needed

I'm sure someone would have put MAGA on it for him
