  • 7th Annual Recruiter Appreciation Day by the DC Chapter, May 2013

    06/02/2013 11:54:35 AM PDT · by trooprally · 10 replies
    In 2007 the D.C. Chapter heard the Gathering of Eagles’ call to show appreciation to our recruiters on Armed Forces Day. Being that Armed Forces Day is on a Saturday and recruiter stations are closed, the Friday before that Saturday was the official Recruiter Appreciation Day. The D.C. Chapter has adopted the Silver Spring, Maryland recruiter station. We have supported the military when Code Pink and Raging Grannies have protested there. The leftist have put super glue in the door lock and cracked the plate glass window. The D.C. Chapter has occasionally shown our appreciation at the L Street,...

    As many of you know, the first Gun Appreciation Day has been set for January 19th. The organizers want you to go out to your local gun range, gun store, gun show and show support for gun rights around the country. I think that this should be taken a step further and we should make it a march on each state capitol in the US. To that end, to all people in the state of Colorado, I hereby invite you to join me at the gun rights march at the Denver Capitol Building on January 19th at 11AM. I have...

    William Bennett, a onetime student of Dr. Silber’s who served as US secretary of education under Ronald Reagan, praised his mentor’s pedagogic style in a 1986 Globe interview. “It wasn’t intimidating; it was quickening,” Bennett said. “Silber is frank and manly and direct. There isn’t enough of that these days. He believes human beings should be spoken to as if they were human beings, not as if they were flowers.”

    By staff reporter Huo Kan and Washington correspondent Zhang Tao 08.01.2011 17:29 More Investors Ask, Why Not Short the Yuan? Crisis theorists and others are wagering that the Chinese currency will veer from its long appreciation path against the dollar Plenty of smart money is betting on the rise of the yuan, but some overseas foreign exchange investors are looking the other way. Contrarians range from hedge funds to wealth management firms, and they generally agree that the possibility of yuan devaluation against the U.S. dollar is at least slightly greater than market consensus. Chinese policymakers, meanwhile, are not rushing...

  • Video of Animal Control Officer Freeing a Trapped Dog, Who Then Does Something Incredible

    09/17/2010 6:12:26 PM PDT · by OneVike · 37 replies
    This is a great video of an animal control officer untangling a dog from a wire fence. The officer has a helmet cam on which I guess some cities now do probably more for protection from lawsuits like they do in police cars. Well the officer finally gets the dog free, but the part you are going to find very funny and cute is what happens at the end of the video. So the video may be a bit longer than most I offer, but please stick with it to the end, I promise you will be pleasantly surprised...

    Loghan Anderson was 720 miles from home and 140 miles from his U.S. Army post when his pickup truck suddenly lost power on southbound Interstate 35 in Texas. The 19-year-old soldier from Tekamah, Neb., pulled to the shoulder. The engine screeched. The truck would not go forward. It would go only in reverse. Maybe it wanted to go back to Nebraska. That was not an option. Anderson was due to report for duty in two days at Fort Hood, Texas. He’s at the beginning of what he hopes will be an Army career, one he signed up for before even...

    Hooray! I just caught part of a radio station promo from station 'HANK FM' while driving south of San Jose, California.The radio station is inviting it's listeners to call in and say just what they appreciate about our soldiers. The disc jockey asked that listeners call in with specific stories about soldiers they admire, qualities that make a good soldier, and the ways that soldiers support our quality of life etc. There was some tie in with a Denny's promotion - possibly Denny's donating meals to troops or but I am not sure. It was so good to hear -...
