    A "goon-squad" group named The Helpful Union Guys (THUG), members of Ironworkers Local 401 set fires, started riots, and took crowbars to the competition in an effort to protect union jobs. THUGs stalked women, took baseball bats to a Toys R Us site, and even torched a Quaker meetinghouse that dared to use non-union labor. Philly.Com reports 10 leaders of Ironworkers Local 401 charged in racketeering indictment. They called themselves "the Helpful Union Guys" - "THUGS" for short - and woe awaited any contractor who dared cross them by hiring non-organized workers.

  • Archaeology dig may uncover nation's earliest free African-American settlment

    08/05/2013 2:19:06 AM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 7 replies
    In Easton, Md., an untold story of free African-Americans is being discovered through bits of glass, shards of pottery and oyster shells. Piece by piece, archaeologists and historians from two universities and the community are uncovering the history of The Hill, which they believe is the earliest settlement of free African-Americans in the United States, dating to 1790. Treme, in New Orleans, is recognized as the oldest free black community in the nation, dating to 1812. But researchers say that could change based on findings from the Easton dig. "It's not just a black story. It's an American story," said...

    St. Paul, Minn. A group of Twin Cities Quakers has decided to stop signing marriage certificates for opposite-sex couples until the state legalizes gay marriage. "We're simply trying to be consistent with the will of God as we perceive it," said Paul Landskroener, clerk of the Twin Cities Friends Meeting, in an interview with MPR's All Things Considered on Monday. The congregation will continue to hold both opposite-sex and same-sex weddings at its meeting house, but will no longer sign the legal marriage certificate for opposite-sex couples. Instead, couples will need to have the certificate signed by a justice...

BELOW: Pictures from previous Olney FReeps. The Patriots this Saturday were Legionnaire, Halsey (USMC - Korea), along with Lurker Bill and FReepers Cindy_True_Supporter, Fraxinus, and myself. The moonbats numbered two. But since there was only one sign between them, the other just stood there and talked....
  • Moonbats Dreaming Again: Wk 169, Olney,MD 04-04-09: Op. Infinite FReep

    Moombats dream that the "V" sign is for peace, but it stands for VICTORY. Moonbats dream that the peace circle is an original symbol, but it is a anti-Christian up-side-down cross. Moonbats dream of "PEACE" but cant imagine that disposing of a dictator and having peace with freedom takes boots on the ground with our Air Force over head and our Navy on the seas. Moonbats "IMAGINE PEACE" but from their sign (BELOW - far left of pic), one has to imagine what it says while traveling at 35 MPH. The 9 Patriots this Saturday included Legionnaires Glenn (USMC...

    WEEK 167 - March 21,2009 Four dedicated Legionnaires held down the corner while the FReepers were in D.C. supporting our troops against everyone except the anti-war, anti-troop A.N.S.W.E.R. group. The Legionnaires included Carl (WWII - Army), Francis (WWII - Army), Glenn (WWII - USMC), and Halsey (USMC - Korea). We couldnt have a better bunch of heroes watching our corner. The Legionnaires didnt pay attention to the Quakers since they had no idea how many of them were out. WEEK 168 - March 28,2009 The Few, the Proud, the Patriots were back on the 28th, camera ready. The 5...

    Finally, some spare time. Between a lot of work that came in last week and preparing for the March 21 Defend Arlington Cemetery Freep, I finally have some spare time. Not much though. WEEK 165 - March 07,2009 Moonbats are like cold blooded animals. When it is cold and rainy, there numbers are low or they dont show. But when it is warm, they emerge from their assisted living condos and dis-honor our brave military. BELOW: I was also surprised that the Quackers, who do not to pledge allegiance to any Country had American flags attached to their banner today....
  • Walter Reed WIND Continues at Olney (Wk 164) and Westminster (Wk 42 ) - AAR TWO-FER

    As Tom the Redhunter reported in his Walter Reed AAR, it was pretty windy out, but warm. Well, that wind blew in the precursor of our snow fall - COLD WEATHER. The temps never made it out of the 30s on Saturday, and never out of the 20s thru today, Tuesday. The wind was blowing from the north, into our faces. This had Legionnaires Glenn (WWII - Iwo Jima) and Frank (Korea and having health problems) leaving early. The other Patriots this Saturday included Legionnaire Halsey (USMC - Korea), Lurker Bill and FReepers Cindy_True_Supporter, and myself. Even with 8 moonbats...

    Hump Saturday for February - it was a little warmer and less windy than the previous Saturdays. Spring is around the corner. Our enthusiasm is starting to shine brighter than the sun was. We had 9 patriots on the corner today, including Legionnaire Frank. He has been out for a long time with health problems, but with the weather just a little better today, he felt that he had to be there. The Patriots this Saturday included Legionnaires Glenn (USMC - WWII), Halsey (USMC - Korea), Frank (Army- Korea) and Dave (Army - WWII) and Lady Friend, along with Lurker...

    Several weeks ago, Legionnaire Daves lady friend asked for a special sign for this Saturday, VALENTINES DAY. Always one to oblige a ladys request, (BELOW) she happily holds the sign with Dave. And additional waves and honks she got. We had 10 Patriots: Legionnaires Glenn (USMC - WWII), Halsey (USMC - Korea), Dennis (Army- Korea) and Dave (Army - WWII) and Lady Friend, along with Lurker Bill and FReepers Cindy_True_Supporter, Eager, iMacMan and myself. Pictures are by iMacMan BELOW: More signs spread around our position. BELOW LEFT: Lurker Bill, first on the corner with a sign. iMacMan is turning the...

    GunsAreOK paid off on his challenge concerning President Bush. He promised to pay the D.C. Chapter $100 for each commuting or pardoning of Border Agents Ramos and Compean and a third person who's name eludes me right now. As we know, former President Bush did commute the jail time for Border Agents Ramos and Compean. The D.C. Chapter coffers are now richer for it. But GunsAreOK wasnt finished. Because he, BufordP and myself were in front of the White house on cool morning protesting POTUS over Ramos and Compean, he offered to buy lunch for the D.C. Chapter regulars. So...

    Okay, all you FReepers in New England, Up State New York and Upper Mid West Neednt Comment. We know it gets colder than a witchs teet in January up there, but we in D.C. got spoiled after last winter. Coldest it got for the Walter Reed or Olney FReep was high 20s. Did I mention yet that the moonbats were a no show? Not yet, but they didnt show. This year has been cold. But not as cold as 2007. Who can forget the night at Walter Reed when the former Fran OBriens dinner buses, filled with wounded warriors and...

    Since I dont watch FOX, or really any news channels since the election, the Military channels receive by attention. Military Channels are a lot better than listening to than the dribble about Obambi and his first coming. So I plagiarized the tank saying. This was a good week in Olney. We had 9 Legionnaires, lurkers and FReepers. They were Legionnaire Glenn (USMC - WWII), Legionnaire Dave (Army - WWII) and his friend, Edith, Lurkers Bill and Mike, and FReepers Cindy_True_Supporter, GunsAreOK, iMacMan and myself. All pics are by iMacMan. Since iMacMan got to Olney early this week he got us...

    Our very own iMacMan Cometh to a very, very cold Olney after several weeks being off, after finally getting his car repaired. Along with his appearance cometh his super great pics (BELOW) of passing supporters. In case you are interested, here is the link to the original 1973 movie, The Iceman Cometh starring Lee Marvin. One pic that iMacMan did not get was the lady who took both hands off the steering wheel and gave us two thumbs up. And this is the reason that we are in Olney, and some of us Walter Reed, every weekend. BELOW: Red Banner...

    Our numbers were small and got smaller as 2 of us left early for our Pro Israeli Rally in D.C., but we proudly stood our ground against an unexpected large number (9) of Quackers. Unexpected because we thought several of the moonbats would have gone down to D.C. to support Hamas. Patriots in attendance Saturday were Legionnaire Halsey (USMC - Korea), Lurker Bill, 3DJoy, Cindy_True_Supporter, 3DJoy and myself. Cindy_True_Supporter and I left around 11 AM since we needed to be in D.C. early to stake out our position. 3DJoy followed after the Olney FReep which had some excitement themselves ....

    Our 3 Year Anniversary is now history without making history that will shake the world. But we are proud to have been Olney for three years. We are proud to join the other FReeps and Gathering of Eagles rallies that have been going on for years all over the United States. We will continue to be in Olney so long as we are needed. History will show something though. It will show that as our military fights to defend us and the world against radical Islam, determined groups of Patriots through out these United States have stood up for them....

Well retire afterwards for R&R at Daves Bistro. All the Olney FReepers, regulars and occasional FReepers, we wish everyone a safe and prosperous NEW YEAR!! This past week Cindy_True_Supporter was back. Her mom is doing better, allowing Cindy to make it back to Olney. But with [Mrs] T still recovering from her shoulder operation (shell be out this coming Saturday) and Lurker Bill having the flu, our stander bearers...

    Yep, the moonbats couldnt keep up with Troop Supporting Santa Claus and all the kids hanging out the car windows waving to him. The merry HooHooHoos and MERRY CHRISTMASs must have been too much for the grumpy moonbats who slithered away after completing only 3/4 of their normal display of their vile and curious but nonsensical messages. And Santa did NOT receive even one thumbs down or other negative hand signal this Saturday which was a pleasant surprise. Unfortunately our two expect picture takers, iMacMan and [Mrs] T were not there to get pics of the kids. There were a...

I shared the photo taking with Plea Deal tonight. Our other photographers are VAFlagWaver, [Mrs] T, Kburi and Tom The Redhunter. Both FReeps had their own excitement but in very different ways.
