Antiwar Peacenik shot by soldier on 4th of July...


Actually it was the other way around with the “Gunman intending to make an antiwar statement” shooting the U.S. Airman in the chest, but this seemed the best way to get many to read this since the mainstream media has decided this story was not that important.

"An Air Force airman was shot by antiwar protestor on July 4th, but the establishment media and liberal blogs yawn. Airman Jonathan Schrieken, 22, is fighting for his life after being shot in the heart by a gunman intending to make an antiwar statement, while standing outside his home near McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey on July 4th. Airman Schrieken, a loadmaster with the 6th Airlift Squadron based at McGuire, remains in critical condition at a Camden, New Jersey hospital."

The antiwar protestor then finished his ‘Statement” by turning the gun on himself and in effect taking out the trash himself for the rest of us.
WILLINGBORO — "The Pennsauken man who shot and wounded a member of the U.S. Air Force before killing himself left suicide notes that indicated he was “angry at the government and wanted to make a statement” on Independence Day, one of the man’s relatives said yesterday."

You would think that a U.S. Military person being shot in the chest by a antiwar protestor on the 4th of July would be covered by the majority of the Mainstream media outlets. Instead this story made its way up thru the sites like “Little Green” and then picked up by Investors Business Daily and MSNBC. Like the above photo and title that attracted attention to this post, what if the incident was the other way around?
"If Airman Schrieken had been an abortionist or homosexual, this story would be front page news for the New York Times and the lead story on CBS News with Katie Couric for at least the next month. But since Schrieken is serving in the military, even his hometown newspaper, the Columbus Dispatch, has ignored this story."

Look, even the Peacnik idiot that attempted murder did not get the coverage he wanted out of the mainstream media…
"Marren’s aunt, Terina Henderson of Trion, Ga., said she spoke to Marren’s mother yesterday who told her Marren left two notes, one in his home and one in his car, indicating he was upset with the government.
She said she did not know the exact wording in the notes, but said Marren was “mad at the government and wanted to make a statement … that’s why he did what he did on the Fourth of July.”

John Murtha (D) "Failed" Accusations...


Looks like Democratic Representative John Murtha has “Failed” in his accusations against our proudly serving and fighting U.S. Marines in Iraq. Democratic Representative Murtha was quick to claim that several U.S. Marines committed the murder of 3 Iraqi men.

“An investigating officer has recommended dismissing murder charges against a U.S. Marine accused in the slayings of three Iraqi men in a squad action that killed 24 civilians in the town of Haditha, according to a report.”

It is apparent that the Democratic Representative Murtha jumped on the opportunity to attack both the efforts and the mission of the U.S. Marines serving in Iraq to advance the ’Failed” mission of the new Democratic Party leadership in Congress
"To believe the government version of facts is to disregard clear and convincing evidence to the contrary, and sets a dangerous precedent that, in my opinion, may encourage others to bear false witness against Marines as a tactic to erode public support of the Marine Corps and mission in Iraq," Ware wrote.

Maybe the Democratic Representative Murtha got himself some “faulty” intelligence that he based his accusations on?

Good show of faith in our military personnel and their mission Johnny-Boy…

48 foot-long Pizza Delivery Truck...

I had the opportunity tonight to ride along with the "Tower 1" truck of the Harrisonburg Fire Department delivering Pizzas and checking Smoke & Carbon Monoxide detectors.

This was part of a community service program promoted and sponsored by the Harrisonburg Fire Department, CiCi's Pizza, and Lowe's Heroes, programs.

CiCi's customers ordering delivery pizzas had their pizza delivered by representatives of the Harrisonburg Fire Department alongwith a Lowe's associate who were riding along for this promotion.

The Firefighters then checked all of the detectors in the house to ensure they worked properly and if needed new batteries or detectors were provided at no charge to the homeowner. If the house did not have a detector one was provided and installation arrangements were provided if needed.

CiCi's provided the pizza free to the homeowner\customer and Lowe's provided the detectors and batteries free as their part of the Community service...

Point Pleasant Rescue Dive Team Response...


Point Pleasant (NJ) First Aid Rescue Dive Team members responded to a reported Dive accident near Gull Island in the Mannasquan River on Sunday and found CPR in progress upon arrival. Dive Team members Flo Melo, Tom Conroy, and Brandon Caladzo were all active EMT’s on site and 1st Lieutenant Gerry Meany performed transport duty.

Upon arrival the Dive Team members found a crowd of Scuba Dive students gathered around the Dive Instructor who was performing CPR on the student who had been removed from the water unconscious and not breathing.

Rescue Dive Team EMT members took over CPR and control of the accident scene and began standard operating procedures for a dive accident investigation. Witness interviews were performed to obtain important information on the victims training status, physical condition, time spent in water, location in water, water conditions, and other pertinent information to assist First -Aid Medics efforts. Dive Team members also secured and transported the victims Scuba equipment for further inspection and investigation by the proper authorities.
I received my training and PADI Divemaster certification from this Rescue Dive Team Instructor and continue to have the opportunity to train and practice skills with this team. I know all of the members who responded on this call and they are very serious about their training and performance. This team is a credit to the Point Pleasant First-Aid Squad and a true benefit to the community...

The Asbury Park Press had the following report on this incident:
