A lone man stood against a crowd of hundreds of protesters in Dallas and held up a hilarious sign.

The crowd was holding signs up like “This Is Not My President” and “White Silence = White Violence.”

One courageous man stood up against them:
lone-man

 

 

Here’s what his sign said:
lone-man-2

He’s right!

These protesters are acting like Trump is going to kill all the gays, make slavery legal again, and take away women’s rights… Like he’s a Muslim or something!

Sadie’s Hero

 Amusing  Comments Off on Sadie’s Hero
Nov 072016
 

A Diabetic Alert Dog was acting op, so a mom called the school to check on her daughter. What the dog sensed is remarkable.

How do you live up to a name like Hero?

Well, for this clever little Lab, it’s all part of the day job.

Hero is a trained diabetic alert dog. He has kept four-year-old Sadie safe ever since he joined her and her family as a puppy.

Sadie was born with Down’s syndrome and, three months later, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Hero is there to let her parents know when Sadie’s blood sugar levels drop too low or get too high, using his strong sense of smell.

He’s able to detect changes to her blood sugar levels through an odour that’s emitted by the body when those chemical changes occur.

When the blood sugar levels are too low, Hero whines and will offer her parents his left paw. When they’re too high, he offers them the right paw.

Which is pretty incredible in itself. But, last December, the family say the closeness of the bond between Sadie and her Hero became even clearer.

On the day in question, Sadie was in her special needs class at Deerfield Elementary School in Cedar Hills, while Hero was at home in Pleasant Grove, over five miles away.

Hero started behaving as he would whenever Sadie’s blood sugar levels are dropping. ‘He’s normally a very quiet dog. Whining is not in his protocol. But he just started whining and he would not stop,’ mum Michelle Brooks told KUTV News.

Michelle wasn’t sure what it could be, given that Sadie was miles away, but decided to call her school just in case.

‘(Sadie’s mom) called me and asked if I could check her numbers and they were fine,’ teacher Ms.Stoneman explained. ‘I tested her and it was fine. Then within half an hour she went down.’

Sadie’s headteacher Caroline Knadler, who also has Type 1 diabetes, couldn’t believe the dog had sensed a problem, despite the two being miles apart.

‘I’ll be honest, it kinda blew my mind,’ she said. ‘How can it be based on smell? It really got me thinking. What is Hero alerting on?’

Hero’s trainer KC Owens agreed it was pretty unbelievable. ‘I can’t explain it,’ she said. ‘I think it’s like mother’s intuition. These dogs have abilities and senses beyond our understanding.’

In a Facebook post, written after the story of Sadie and Hero was shared on US TV, mum Michelle wrote: ‘We were nervous to do the story because we didn’t want to give the impression that all dogs alerts long distance. They don’t. We didn’t want to appear like we were making crazy claims about our dog’s ability.

‘While we can’t and won’t even try to explain how this happens, we feel blessed. Even without the long distance alerts, he is amazing!’
She also responded to comments that Hero was a little more ‘cuddly’ than he should be. ‘I want to assure everyone that he is very healthy and we see his vet often to assure he stays that way,’ she said.

‘Bottom line is he’s the perfect dog for Sadie in every way. His size and structure was actually one of the reasons KC matched him to us.’
The clue’s in the name really.

Col. Robert L. Howard – The Man The Vietcong Couldn’t Kill

 Amusing, Information, Political  Comments Off on Col. Robert L. Howard – The Man The Vietcong Couldn’t Kill

Col. Robert L. Howard

Col. Robert L. Howard (aka The Real Rambo) was the most decorated soldier / veteran in American history. It’s people like him who make this country GREAT!

This guy was a serious war fighter that played no games with the Vietcong. He racked and stacked bodies during The Vietnam War and was about black ops as it gets.

Col. Robert L. Howard

A Staff Sergeant in MACV-SOG which is a highly classified unit. This man was wounded 14 times during his 54 months of combat. He was actually put in for the Medal of Honor three separate times, but he did not receive either of the first 2 Medal of Honors because the actions that he performed took place in countries where the United States was fighting covertly and The President could not award him the Medal of Honor for actions in Cambodia since we were not supposed to be there to begin with. However he was award the Medal of Honor, 8 Purple Hearts, 1 Distinguished Service Cross, 1 Silver Star, and 4 Bronze Stars.

Actual citation for his actions.

FIRST LIEUTENANT
ROBERT L. HOWARD
UNITED STATES ARMY

for service as set forth in the following CITATION:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. 1st Lt. Howard (then SFC .), distinguished himself while serving as platoon sergeant of an American-Vietnamese platoon which was on a mission to rescue a missing American soldier in enemy controlled territory in the Republic of Vietnam. The platoon had left its helicopter landing zone and was moving out on its mission when it was attacked by an estimated 2-company force. During the initial engagement, 1st Lt. Howard was wounded and his weapon destroyed by a grenade explosion. 1st Lt. Howard saw his platoon leader had been wounded seriously and was exposed to fire. Although unable to walk, and weaponless, 1st Lt. Howard unhesitatingly crawled through a hail of fire to retrieve his wounded leader. As 1st Lt. Howard was administering first aid and removing the officer’s equipment, an enemy bullet struck 1 of the ammunition pouches on the lieutenant’s belt, detonating several magazines of ammunition. 1st Lt. Howard momentarily sought cover and then realizing that he must rejoin the platoon, which had been disorganized by the enemy attack, he again began dragging the seriously wounded officer toward the platoon area. Through his outstanding example of indomitable courage and bravery, 1st Lt. Howard was able to rally the platoon into an organized defense force. With complete disregard for his safety, 1st Lt. Howard crawled from position to position, administering first aid to the wounded, giving encouragement to the defenders and directing their fire on the encircling enemy. For 312 hours 1st Lt. Howard’s small force and supporting aircraft successfully repulsed enemy attacks and finally were in sufficient control to permit the landing of rescue helicopters. 1st Lt. Howard personally supervised the loading of his men and did not leave the bullet-swept landing zone until all were aboard safely. 1st Lt. Howard’s gallantry in action, his complete devotion to the welfare of his men at the risk of his life were in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit on himself, his unit, and the U.S. Army.

Col. Robert Howard died on Dec 23,2009 of pancreatic cancer in Waco, Texas.

An Honest Video About Race And Traffic Stops

 Political  Comments Off on An Honest Video About Race And Traffic Stops
Aug 272015
 

Great video. This man speaks the truth!

A video of a young African American man talking candidly and honestly about a recent traffic stop in Lexington County is now reaching a larger audience due to social media in the wake of the shooting of an unarmed man in North Charleston.

Will Stack, a 22-year-old service member with the Army National Guard, says in the video he was pulled over by a Lexington police officer for “improper use of the median.”

According to Stack, he was pulling out of the Lexington County Courthouse in an attempt to make a left turn. Stack said he noticed the lane in front of him was full and the median was not, so he drove the car through the median to get to the left turn lane.

Seconds later, Stack says he was pulled over by the police officer, who immediately asked to see his license, registration, and proof of insurance.

“Now, I will say that why he was here with me, I made sure my hands were on the steering wheel, I made sure to speak very politely as I always do. I did what he told me to do. I handed him the information and I sat here and waited and turned my music down,” Stack said in the video.

Stack says the officer returns a short time later and explains the proper use of a median. Stack admits he made a poor choice.

“I was in the wrong, I didn’t realize it,” Stack said. “I just did it out of habit.”

Stack received a warning from the officer and both went on their respective ways. Minutes later, Stack pulled out his smartphone and began to talk.

“The point of this is to say that I am an African American male, this gentleman was Caucasian. There were no problems. He did his job, I did what I was supposed to do, and that was it.”

William Harvey Carney

Sergeant William Harvey Carney, a soldier during the American Civil War, was the first African American to be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. In 1900, he was awarded the Medal of Honor for his gallantry during the Battle of Fort Wagner in 1863. Because his actions preceded those of other medal honorees, he is considered to be the first African American to be granted the Medal of Honor.

Salute!

William Harvey Carney (February 29, 1840 – December 8, 1908)

The regiment gained recognition on July 18, 1863, when it spearheaded an assault on Fort Wagner near Charleston, South Carolina. At this battle, Colonel Shaw was killed, along with one-hundred and sixteen of his men. Another hundred and fifty-six were wounded or captured.

The total casualties of 272 would be the highest total for the 54th in a single engagement during the war. Although the Union was not able to take and hold the fort, the 54th was widely acclaimed for its valor, and the event helped encourage the further enlistment and mobilization of African-American troops, a key development that President Abraham Lincoln once noted as helping to secure the final victory.

Sergeant William Harvey Carney was the first African American to be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Although he was not presented with the honor until nearly 37 years after his acts of bravery. Carney rescued the U.S. flag as the flag bearer fell, carrying the flag to the enemy ramparts and back, and saying “Boys, the old flag never touched the ground!” While other African-Americans had since been granted the award, Carney’s is the earliest action for which the Medal of Honor was awarded to an African-American.

Carney was born a slave in Norfolk, Virginia, but escaped to Massachusetts like his father through the Underground Railroad. They later bought the rest of the family out of slavery.

In later life, Carney was a postal employee and popular speaker at patriotic events. He died in Boston, Massachusetts, and is buried in the family plot at Oak Grove Cemetery in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Engraved on his stone monument is a gold image of the Medal of Honor.

2. Old Iron Sides

1st Armored Division, US Army: The “Old Ironsides” nickname was given by Maj. Gen. Bruce R. Magruder after Gen.

3. Bloody Bucket

28th Infantry Division, US Army: Originally nicknamed “Keystone Division,” the unit acquired the nickname “Bloody Bucket” by German forces during World War II because the red keystone patch resembled a bucket.
