    Today | Me pointing to radio station HANK FM
    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 -...

    Gathering of Eagles and Eagles Up has announced this year’s plans for Recruiter Appreciation Day. Armed Forces Day is on Saturday, May 16, but GoE is dedicating the whole week, May 11 to May 16, to Recruiter Appreciation Day. The whole week will give everyone a chance to better plan their Day. The GoE link has a lot of great ideas so be sure to look at it, especially if you are new to this. There have been several One FReeper Recruiter Appreciation visits in the past so don’t think you need a group. Just do it. If the recruiting...
  • Bush 'investigator' John Conyers needs to be investigated for his ties to left-wing extremist groups

    several sources
    House Judiciary Committee chairman, democrat John Conyers Jr of Michigan, and HJC member, Maxine Waters, have each given their endorsements to the Revolutionary Communist Party movement/organization, "World Can't Wait--Drive Out the Bush Regime" (they'll probably be dropping the "Drive Out the Bush Regime" portion of their name soon). In fact, Conyers even gave a speech to the group. The RCP calls for an armed communist overthrow of the United States. Click on the WCW link just below and see: "Endorsers of the Call to Drive Out the Bush Regime Include". Conyers' endorsement appears right after Ward Churchill's. Al Sharpton's, Maxine...

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 21, 2008 – Away from the rigors of combat last night on an evening dedicated to their selfless service, the only shootout troops worried about was between dueling National Hockey League teams. During Military Appreciation Night at the Verizon Center here, the Washington Capitals honored some 5,000 servicemembers and their families with free admission and hosted dozens of wounded warriors from military hospitals. From the giant high-definition screen hanging from the arena's ceiling, shout-outs to servicemembers and videos featuring troops and hockey pros projected onto some 18,000 fans attending the Capitals-New York Islanders contest. At a pre-game...

    Bill and Elaine Nolan paid top dollar when they bought their Tiburon house a few years ago at the height of real estate frenzy. Now, of course, the market is cooling rapidly. So Bill Nolan, who deals with money all day long as a partner in an investment management firm, wanted to diversify. He turned to a startup based on a new concept: Let homeowners tap their equity without taking on debt.
