ohyesjulesdid:

We need more parents like T.C. Weber!

What Became of the 56 Signers of Declaration Of Independence?

What Became of the 56 Signers of Declaration Of Independence?

Originally posted on Contra:

declaration

As the 4th of July approaches, and the current climate of politics in these United States, I think it is important to remind all American citizens of the price that was paid by these men for putting their beliefs and actions into practice.  The price that they paid was very expensive.

I am of the opinion that politicians today cannot hold a candle to these men,…

Never Shop At Hobby Lobby Again: A List Of Alternative Craft Stores Both Chain and Indie

Never Shop At Hobby Lobby Again: A List Of Alternative Craft Stores Both Chain and Indie

We know by now that one positive way to promote change is by making conscious purchases. We did it with a certain chicken fast food chain and now we can do it with arts and crafts. I…

Beware of Michael’s as well. Best bet is to find those locally owned shops. For example, I buy my yarn at a little local shop called L’Atelier or Harmony Works. The ability to support small local business owners feels good—and it’s worth the little extra I pay for each skein or other craft items.

“A young woman was restrained, force-fed and injected with cosmetics in a high street shop window as part of a hard-hitting protest against animal testing.
Jacqueline Traide was tortured in front of hundreds of horrified shoppers in a bid to raise awareness and end the practise.
The 24-year-old endured 10 hours of experiments, which included having her hair shaved and irritants squirted in her eyes, as part of a worldwide campaign by Lush Cosmetics and The Humane Society.
The disturbing stunt took place in Lush’s Regent Street store, one of the UK’s busiest shopping streets.
Jacqueline appeared genuinely terrified as she was pinned down on a bench and had her mouth stretched open with two metal hooks while a man in a white coat force-fed her until she choked and gagged.
The artist was also injected with numerous needles, had her skin braised and lotions and creams smeared across her face.
Passers-by were gobsmacked to see Jacqueline, a social sculpture student at Oxford Brookes University, forced to have a section of her head shaved.
The gruesome spectacle aimed to highlight the cruelty inflicted on animals during cosmetic laboratory tests and raise awareness that animal testing is still a common practise.
The Humane Society International and Lush Cosmetics have joined forces to launch the largest-ever global campaign to end animal testing for cosmetics.
The campaign, launched to coincide with World Week for Animals in Laboratories, is being rolled out simultaneously in over 700 Lush Ltd shops across forty-seven countries including the United States, Canada, India, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Russia.
Lush campaign manager Tamsin Omond said: “The ironic thing is that if it was a beagle in the window and we were doing all these things to it, we’d have the police and RSPCA here in minutes.
“But somewhere in the world, this kind of thing is happening to an animal every few seconds on average.
“The difference is, it’s normally hidden. We need to remind people it is still going on.”

This is why I desperate want to campaign with Lush.
