End the $30billion in aid to Israel..join activists for a Protest on Sep 15th in SF

Call to action!
Global protests on September 15, 2011 –
No More Aid to Israel!
As citizens of the United States, we are concerned about our government’s use of our tax dollars. Our schools are struggling. Cities are teetering on the edge of bankruptcy. Don’t get us started on health care.

And then, there’s the Middle East.

Obama praised the democratic revolutions that toppled dictators in the Middle East. But in the same speech, he pledged to continue sending US tax dollars to support Israel’s military occupation of Palestinian territory—an occupation that is illegal, dangerous to both Israelis and Palestinians, and decidedly undemocratic.

The United States supplies the IDF with the tear-gas canisters they use to suppress non-violent protests. In recent years, there have been several civilian fatalities and many serious injuries resulting from these canisters being aimed directly at protesters. (courtesy R€fu$e)
The United States has allotted a staggering 30 billion dollars to the Israeli military, for 2009-2018 alone. (Want to know how much your state is contributing to the illegal Israeli occupation? Click here to find out).

This September, the eyes of the world will be focused on Israel/Palestine as Palestinian politicians are expected to request the admission of a state of Palestine to the UN.  The Israeli government has responded by announcing the construction of new blocks of illegal settlements, including 1,600 housing units around East Jerusalem, cutting off the last open route between Bethlehem and Jerusalem.  While it seems extremely unlikely that the admission of a state of Palestine to the UN will change the reality on the ground for Palestinians living under occupation in any way, the US has promised to veto even this symbolic gesture.

As American citizens, we object to our country’s unwavering, unquestioning political support of Israel.

As American citizens, we object to our tax dollars being used to fund occupation and colonization.

And as world citizens, we demand a just solution that guarantees equality and human rights for all people who call Israel and Palestine their home.

On September 15–the International Day of Democracy and two days after the UN has convened–we will take to the streets and demand true democracy for everyone in the Middle East. We will demand that the American government listen to us and respect our opinion as much as it listens to the special interest groups in Washington, DC.

And we will demand that our government keep that 30 billion dollars at home. After all, wouldn’t that money be better spent in American Territory?

Color wheel and Concealing

Ladies get to to know this color wheel. Unlike the one we used to hold and blow when we were kids, this one's super crucial for looking your best. Even when u feel like *rap! Im a pro at concealing cuz I look like *rap on most mornings. I have 2 kids under 10..and Im like a chicken w/o its head most times. What keeps me sane may seem shallow to some. But looking good is something Ive held at high importance since having my precious bratz! If I look good I feel good. Of course I try to eat and sleep right, but  mother nature needs some help to help my face lol! ;p Back to this color wheel. Study it well..notice the colors..dont get hypnotized.
A circular diagram of the color spectrum, the color wheel is made of pie slices of green, blue, purple, red, orange, and yellow.
You select the color on the wheel opposite the one you want to conceal, and apply a camouflage makeup of that opposite color.
Instantaneously and perfectly, you have just camouflaged the spot you wanted to hide through the use of colors on the color wheel.
For example, if you are left after laser surgery with a purple bruise, applying a yellow-based makeup will conceal the bruise and leave the skin looking close to its normal color. (This is because the color opposite purple on the color wheel is yellow.)
There are many products out there that wok well for correcting before you do anything you must correct the problem! No matter how much concealer you put on a dark circle, it must be corrected before being covered, same with a red pimple etc.
Whether you prefer cream, liquid, or my personal fav mineral makeup which is powder. If you use the color wheel and counteract your problem, you can look flawless.

Some products worth trying:
Bobbi Brown corrector

Amazing Cosmetics Concealer (love this)
Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer- Works great

Physicians Formula Corrector- 3 colors snapped together (yellow, peach and highlight) found at Walgreens or other drug stores.
Mineral Wear® Talc-Free Mineral Correcting Concealer

Concealer Twins® 2-in-1 Correct & Cover Cream Concealer

Physicians Formula: Concealer Twins 2-in-1 Correct & Cover Cream Concealer

My favorite: Mineral Powder
Everyday Minrals: Abbots perk me up and tons more go to
Silk Naturals has a bunch of correctors
La Minerals
Signature has correctors too

Its always key to exfoliate then moisturize and suncreen at least SPF 30, then prime your face, even if its dry. Your canvas (skin) must be prepared in order to paint (makeup)! lol
