Munchkin, I applaud you for keeping an open mind and trying to sort out all the issues.

One of my parents was a Democrat, the other a Republican, so I think that helped me to avoid demonizing either party. From my experience, I think most people only listen to commentators or newscasters that support their point of view and then they characterize the opposite party/candidate as stupid, horrible, etc. ALL Republicans are blah blah, ALL Democrats are blah blah.

It's not tempting to enter into a dialogue here to try to sort out any of the issues, because it ends up in personal attacks. I won't post in this thread any further and I expect that there many be others who won't because they expose themselves to contempt, ridicule, sarcasm and other unproductive responses.

I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
