Today is national Voter Registration Day! Celebrate by helping someone (or several people) register and then going out for ice cream.
On this day in 1862, President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation.
What Faith Is and Is Not
Faith is believing something that cannot be proved (or disproved) by using human reason and the scientific method.
Refusing to believe things that have been tested and proved (or disproved) by using human reason and the scientific method is not faith.
Florida sends SWAT teams to check barbers’ licenses
Not a joke. You only need to skim the first three or four pages.
"With some team members dressed in ballistic vests and masks, and with guns drawn…"
"All of the targeted barbershops were businesses that serviced primarily African-American and Hispanic clientele."
"…somewhere between eight and ten officers, including narcotics agents, descended upon the barbershop…" which had four barbers.
"Trammon and Anderson, who were in the process of cutting customers’ hair, were then immediately patted down and handcuffed with plastic zip ties. Anderson was handcuffed by a masked officer."
Because, you know, dangerous barbers.
All four were able to produce valid licenses.
