Friday Open Thread | Living For The Weekend

DANCING COUPLEGood morning, everyone!

Have a fun filled & safe July 4th weekend.

But as soon as Friday rolls around
I lay all my weekly burdens down
I put on my glad rags
And paint the town, Living for the weekend…

Friday night alive, Living for the weekend…

Said, I’m living for the weekend
That’s when I party down
Party hard, party down
Party hard, party down….

    850,000 eligible voters in Ohio have been removed from the voter rolls.… … #StopThePurge
    Kat 4 Obama ‏@Kat4Obama 21m21 minutes ago

    People in Dem-leaning neighborhoods struck from rolls at about 2x the rate of people in GOP-leaning neighborhoods.

    I would be just like this granny if someone put me in a autopilot car:

      I have an Aunt that died, never having ridden an airplane. I was always, ‘ Come on, Aunt Sweet’, and she was like, ‘ Nope.’

      I am now old enough to where I understand that ‘ Nope.’

      self-driving car?

      HELL NO.

      “Can a family separated by the transatlantic slave trade sing and dance its way back together? In Perico, Cuba is an Afro-Cuban group that has kept alive songs and dances brought aboard a slave ship by their ancestor, known only as Josefa. They preserved them proudly despite slavery, poverty and repression. Through years of searching, filmmaker Emma Christopher tried to find their origins. Then, in a remote village in Sierra Leone, people watched a recording of the Cubans’ songs and dances, joyously declared ‘They are We!’ and joined in with the songs. They had never forgotten their lost family, and now their descendants were coming home. So began preparations for the biggest festival in the village’s history, a welcoming home for their cousins.

      UPDATE: ‎”They Are We” is finally available to rent or buy for home video at Amazon: Thanks to everyone who has waited so long!

      “A fun, short video of bits of They Are We that didn’t make the final movie. The Gangá-Longobá get back to Upper Banta two hundred years after their ancestor was taken away.”

    May the day come when all American citizens have social justice and equality. May there be no more efforts at voter suppression through various gimmicks. May profiling and stereotyping end.
    May Freddie Gray receive the justice that he deserves. May discrimination end. My prayer continues.

    So pretty obvious Trump now coordinating with his SuperPACs to solicit foreign contribs. Great work, folks …

  9. Ametia says:


    Yes; here we are, Lizz.

    • Ametia says:

      Appointing ‘special’ this and ‘special’ that only ads to the fact that the justice system is set up to serve BLACK folks one way and white folks another way.

      I guess Laquan and his family are considered “special” huh?

    • Ametia says:

      Just GO have a SEAT, AG Lynch. Not absolving your role in this.

      You’re the Attorney General. You used to serve in the Clinton administration. You should be fully aware of the political games these folks play.

      of course if she not directly involved in the recs, it would figure she’d go along with the findings within the department, which is what Bubba Clinton intended all along.

    Bobby Bonilla’s agent that got this deal back in 1999 is the real MVP
    Mike Wise ‏@MikeWiz39 Jun 30
    @RealTFIII @darrenrovell instead of paying him 6 mil back in 99, they deferred payments of 1.2 mil once a year until 2035 smh #GoMets

  11. Ametia says:

    Didn’t we say that the Clintons BRING DRAMA wherever they go, whomever they touch?

    Hillster & Bubba, DRAMA QUEEN & KING. And AG Lynch, what the fuck were you thinking, hitching yourself to these people?

    • Bill Clinton can’t stop causing trouble. He damn well knows better. But don’t give a damn about anyone but himself. I loathe them with everything in me.

    Unbelievable…police cars in this town are uninsured and unregistered:

    Just listened to the radio. Head of the Chicago Park District was on. If you have a kid, 17 and under, they can golf for free. Some courses require an adult to play with you, but other courses, if you are a teen, you can play by yourself for FREE.
    FYI: still spots open for Summer Camp around the city.

    Lynch to back FBI, Justice findings in Clinton email probes, official says
