"Today Frederick Douglass is best remembered as a giant of the abolitionist cause. That is as it should be. The destruction of slavery was his life's work, and he deserves to be honored and remembered for it. But as the above history also makes clear, Douglass deserves to be recognized on another front: namely, for being one of the 19th century's most eloquent critics of socialism."
Understanding the political philosophy of the abolitionist leader.

"Black success is a threat to political empires and to a whole social vision behind those empires. That social vision has politicians like Bill de Blasio and Hillary Clinton cast in the role of rescuers and protectors of blacks from enemies threatening on all sides. If politicians can promote paranoia, that means bigger voter turnout, which is what really matters to them."

About the Hair Color and Not Coloring--For me, it's about the freedom, thriftyness and best health practices
Love being free from having to color my hair every three weeks, and even then, it would look like I had bald patches where the new growth was more concentrated because of the contrast.  Also, I wanted to wear it long, and I couldn't manage to keep it health...

"The study determined that there is a strong link between alcohol consumption and cancer in specific areas of the body, such as the liver, colon, esophagus and female breast."...

"Breast tissue is another area that seems to be particularly susceptible to alcohol."
If you've recently had a drink, we have some terrible news for you.

Casin and Cancer:
Drinking milk is hazardous to your health, and to your family's health.
What can do to get your protein and calcium if you don't milk?

Well, first consider this:
"The primary biologic purpose of cow’s milk is to cause growth—from a 60 pound calf to a 600 pound cow in less than 8 months. This “miracle-grow” fluid has several qualities that help accomplish this feat. Cow’s milk is 50% fat, providing 600 “growth-supporting” calories per quart.3 Cow’s milk also has high concentrations of protein, potassium, sodium, calcium, and other nutrients to sustain rapid growth. (In comparison, these nutrients are at a three to four times lower concentration in human milk than cow’s milk.3)"
More is not better, it's unhealthy. Your body will do all it can to mitigate the overload, sometimes for decades, but at a great cost to your body's organs.

If you think you're in the clear if you drink low fat milk, or non-fat milk, you're still getting the casin, the major protein in cow's milk, only now in super concentrated amounts.

What's wrong with that? Well, it's strongly correlated with cancer, in not one, or two, or a few, but in multiple peer reviewed, documented research studies going back for decades.

Many studies, including a 2009 paper available in the National Institutes of Health library, have concluded that consumption of dairy products may be linked to breast cancer. 1. “Casein, which makes up 87% of cow's milk protein, promoted all stages of the cancer process,” says Dr. T. Colin ...

"It reminds me of a famous Philip Morris cigarette ad that tried to downplay the risks by saying, “Hey, you think second-hand smoke is bad, increasing the risk of lung cancer 19%; well, hey, drinking one or two glasses of milk may be three times as bad—62% increased risk of lung cancer. Or doubling the risk frequently cooking with oil; or tripling your risk of heart disease eating non-vegetarian; or multiplying your risk six-fold eating lots of meat and dairy.” So, they conclude, “Let’s keep some perspective here.” The risk of cancer from secondhand smoke may be well below that of other everyday activities.  So, breathe deep. 
That’s like saying: yeah, don’t worry about getting stabbed, because getting shot is so much worse. It’s like saying if you don’t wear seat belts, you might as well have unprotected sex. If you go bungee jumping, might as well disconnect your smoke alarms at home. Two risks don’t make a right.
Of course, you’ll note Philip Morris stopped throwing dairy under the bus once they purchased Kraft Foods."-- Excerpt from the transcript that goes with this short 8 minute video.
Only about one in 10,000 people make it to be 100 years old. What’s their secret?

On the highest levels of BPA from food sources, "...worst of the worst appeared to be canned tuna."
90% of our exposure to the hormone-disrupting chemical bisphenol A comes from certain components of our diet.

Good ol' Dr. Benjamin Spock. He was a treasure, and his work helped so many parents with the daunting task of rearing their children. He changed his views on childhood nutrition later in life, and lived to write about it, extensively. Here's a sample of his enlightened points of view on the subject:
"In recent years, we’ve discovered that a high-fat diet, which means eating relatively large amounts of meat, dairy products, and fried foods, is the main cause of arteriosclerosis, coronary heart disease, stroke, certain forms of cancer and obesity. In the days before this was discovered, nutritionists, professionals and parents worried that a diet low in dairy products and meats might bring about malnutrition, especially in regard to calcium, protein, and the growth needs of children. But careful studies have shown that if diets are planned sensibly, as all diets should be, protein, calcium, and growth needs will be well covered by a diet of varied whole grains, legumes, vegetables and fruits. (A much greater danger is that of heart disease, stroke, and cancer, when children learn to love an animal-based diet and want it for the rest of their lives.)"
This personal account by Dr. Spock outlines how he realized that parents should steer children away from meat and dairy during early childhood.

I can't believe how fortunate I am, to have a place like Soul Body Yoga, and Mina, right here in Moorpark. The studio classes are intimate, challenging, and rewarding.

Feel really lucky to be able to be a member of this gym/sports club. The staff is all really friendly and helpful. The facilities are clean. The machines are all in good condition. The 2 pools are kept clean and at a comfortable 80 to 81 degrees and they're outside, so you don't have to worry about breathing harmful fumes full of waste that need to dissipate from the surface of the pool. And it's so affordable. I'm grateful.

This is my favorite market in town since we moved to West Hills from Whittier. I find the fruits, and vegetables to be fresh and beautiful and bountiful and the prices fair and affordable. I find the variety of chilies we like, and today I bought their store made corn and flour tortillas. The corn tortillas were still warm from their freshness and the flour tortillas, I bought in the burrito size, are delicious. I love the quality of the beets, eggplant, red chard, carrots, papaya, bananas and more, all staples we consume, and priced so reasonably. And if you love traditional Mexican fare, the fresh cheese, the pork chicharrones, the fresh salsas are good quality.

Went vegan in May, and neededsome fuel. Got their vegan burrito. Glad they have one. That's a good sign. But it was refried beans, white rice, iceberg lettuce and for pototoes, tater tots. Not that fuel powered boost im hooked on when I eat a cleaner more whole food type of burrito. Beans less mashed and processed, some whole grain rice, some dark greens and diced tomatoes, some baked or grilled potatoes would make it a hit.
