Disabled Vet’s Bike Gets Stolen, His Community’s Response is Amazing

Such a great story!

Published

Criminals aren’t exactly known for adhering to a moral code, but there are some lines even they won’t cross in a strange attempt to hold on to some form of human decency.

Unfortunately, these folks seem to be in the minority these days, especially when they start stealing from disabled veterans.

An army vet had his specialized bicycle stolen recently, and while that’s a tragic tale in and of itself, our story here actually has a happy ending.

Now he spends his time volunteering for the city and picking up trash from public places.

Payne got around on a specialized bicycle — that is, until a thief made off with the bike and left Payne without transportation.

Payne — who locals call Major — put over 900 miles on his bike last year, and thanks to the love and kindness of his local community, he might be back in business for another 900.

WBZ reported that Payne’s story went viral on social media, and some in the community came forward to show their admiration and generosity by offering to replace Payne’s stolen bicycle.

Payne’s former boss said one person is going to donate $500 and he himself would offer up $250, noting others, complete strangers, made donations as well.

Two siblings ended up raising some cash for Payne by doing a lemonade stand.

Because of these efforts, it appears Payne will have the funds needed to purchase a bike in the upcoming days.

This is a beautiful story of how communities can love and respect one another, caring for each other and being willing to help whenvever a need arises.

Here’s to hoping more of this way of thinking spreads across America and the issues that divide us lose their power.

DC Mayor Now Bribing Children to Get Vaccine with Gift Cards, AirPods

Unbelievable.

Published

The Biden Administration is coming to a startling realization in recent weeks, as the number of folks who aren’t vaccinated approaches the number of folks who won’t be vaccinated. As it stands today, about half to the nation is inoculated, with the other half largely unwilling to go down that road.  In order to reach herd immunity, experts suggest that as many as 70% of us will need to have COVID antibodies – a fact that has prompted a number of municipalities to work up programs to entice Americans to get the jab. In DC, they are now targeting children with these incentives. Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Thursday the city will offer cash and goodies to children from August 7 as gifts for those who receive their first shot of the coronavirus vaccine. Bowser previewed the August reward program saying, “All DC youth can claim their free COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus] vaccine” at three locations in D.C., adding the “youth can receive a $51 VISA gift card.” Additional prizes will see, “The first 400 youth to get vaccinated at each site will have the option to forgo their gift card and instead receive a pair of AirPods.” And the parents are being targeted as well. She revealed other enticements, saying “parents/guardians will also get one $51 VISA gift card,” adding the gift cards are “per child vaccinated,” which could be lucrative for families with multiple children. The announcement comes on the heels of a similar bribe by NYC officials who offered $100 to anyone willing to get the jab.

Delta Info Leaked: CDC Says It’s More Transmissible Than Smallpox

That can’t be good.

Published

We are now in month 17 of our “2-week lockdown”.  You remember?  The one that was meant to “flatten the curve” two St. Patrick’s Days ago. So, nearly a year-and-a-half later, we are now dealing with something called the “delta” variant, and a return to the masks and restrictions that marred society during the early days of the pandemic. The CDC’s guidance on the matter changed abruptly this week, drawing a great deal of criticism from Americans the nation over.  Now, a leaked document appears to show why the organization changed their tune. The Delta variant is much more contagious, more likely to break through protections afforded by the vaccines and may cause more severe disease than all other known versions of the virus, according to an internal presentation circulated within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, the director of the agency, acknowledged on Tuesday that vaccinated people with so-called breakthrough infections of the Delta variant carry just as much virus in the nose and throat as unvaccinated people, and may spread it just as readily, if less often. And, when compared to other infamous outbreaks, “delta” holds its own. The Delta variant is moretransmissible than the viruses that cause MERS, SARS, Ebola, the common cold, the seasonal flu and smallpox, and it is as contagious as chickenpox, according to the document, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times. The immediate next step for the agency is to “acknowledge the war has changed,” the document said. Its contents were first reported by The Washington Post on Thursday evening. The news comes just a children the nation over are preparing to head back to the classroom, and with cooler, drier weather just around the corner to drive some of us back indoors.
