WEST CHESTER “SUPER SUNDAY” – MILITARY FAMILIES IN THE CROWD

Filed under: Uncategorized — Rich Davis @ 9:03 am

In beautiful downtown West Chester, 15 blocks were closed in order to celebrate “Super Sunday”.  The streets were turned into a giant boardwalk without the surf.  It’s a great time to walk around, eat some delicious food and meet old friends and new. I met several military families.

Below is an Army mom named Susan and her brother Joe, who is a veteran and visiting from Alaska.  Susan’s son Stephen is in Iraq with the PA National Guard Unit (the 57th Stryker Brigade).   This is Stephen’s 2nd tour in Iraq.  Susan is great, like all military mom’s she’s worried, but very proud.  She told me that he turned 19 and 23 in Iraq.  I told her that another mother from the 57th Stryker Brigade (Mary Lou) comes to all our “Salute The Troops” rallies on Saturdays.

This young man is Garrett, he graduated from Southern Fulton High School (in the western part of PA) and just moved to West Chester.  He told me he’s going to join the Army when he turns 18, which is in 3 days (Jun 9th).   He’s a great guy and one of America’s finest patriots.

Here’s Marine Mom Patty, her son Jeremiah is currently stationed in at the Marine Air Base in Beaufort, SC.  He’s almost finished his 5-year active duty commitment.  He’s an Iraq combat veteran.  When Jeremiah gets out (on July 1st, 2009) he’s going to music school in Orlando, Florida.  Patty told me, “Jeremiah has always wanted to be a music producer and now his dream is coming true.  He’s going to use his GI Bill, and his school will all be paid for!  It’s a two-year program and he’s thrilled.”  I told Patty to make sure he visits us at our “Support the Troops” rally some Saturday – we’d love to meet him, shake his hand, and thank him for the noble job he did.

(actually he looks just like Bono, and was kind enough to let me that this picture of him and his girlfriend. I forget his name but he did say he lives in West Chester)

Here’s a police bicycle parked in bike rack.  Notice what he used to lock to the rack (handcuffs – love it).

And finally, here’s a couple.  No, they aren’t arguing, they’re dancing to “Brick House”!

This guy was the most popular person there, all kinds of people kept coming up to him and touching him and telling him how cute he was, especially the ladies.  I think his smiling owner (with the red cap) enjoyed the attention too.  The puppy is a Sharpei, 6-weeks old.

All in all, it was a great day in downtown West Chester.  They will have more similar events throughout the summer (first Thursday of every month), Restuarant Sunday, etc.  So come on out and maybe I’ll see you on the “boardwalk”.   Thanks always to all our military families, they also serve.

OBAMA’s POLICE STATE – THE “CIVILIAN NATIONAL SECURITY FORCE” BEGINS

An Oklahoma man was stopped by police for having an anti-Obama sign on his car.  It turned into a nightmare as the cops took him in for questioning and even had the Secret Service search his house and question his wife and daughter.  The sign said, “Abort Obama Not the Unborn”

The police officers who stopped Oklahoma City motorist Chip Harrison and confiscated the sign told him he has a right to his beliefs, but the Secret Service “could construe this as a threat against President Obama,” according to the incident report.

Harrison told the officers  “Abort Obama” meant to impeach him.  He told the officers he does not believe in abortion because he is a Christian.  Harrison was stopped on westbound Interstate 240 at 8:45 a.m. on Feb. 12.

He said, “the Secret Service called me and said they weren’t going to ransack my house or anything … they just wanted to walk through the house and make sure I wasn’t a part of any hate groups.”   ”We walked through the house and my wife and 2-year-old were in the house,” Harrison said.   He said they interviewed him for about 30 minutes and then left, not finding any evidence Harrison was a threat to the president.

”I’m still in contact with a lawyer right now,” Harrison said. “I don’t know what I’m going to do.”

Obama talked about a “Civilian National Security Force”. It appears it’s becoming a reality.  Can you imagine the reaction of the liberals, of the press, if a cop pulled someone over for an anti-Bush sign?  They’d be crying, “Nazi!  Fascism” and worse.

Ironically,  it’s the liberals who cry that the Patriot Act denies their freedoms but they, the socialist liberals are the ones who abuse their power and harass and threaten lawsuits with anyone they dislike or disagree with.
