it is that time of the year again. looking for volunteer gift wrappers in North east NJ

I volunteer for a 501c3 charity and need some help wrapping presents in Barnes and Noble in exchange for donation to the charity, we usually earn a nice amount that helps the programs. If anyone has time, please send me a message and I can send you the dates and times. The locations I am working this year is Clifton, Paramus and Woodland Park. The selling point is that I can give community service hours for volunteering for an easy peasy job. wrapping mostly square gifts.

Thanks for considering it.

never forget from the VFW web site

[link:http://www.vfw.org/News-and-Events/Articles/2014-Articles/CONGRESS-PASSES-VETERANS%E2%80%99-BILLS/|CONGRESS PASSES VETERANS’ BILLS


But as encouraging as the pending legislation is came three no votes from Republican Sens. Bob Corker (Tenn.), Ron Johnson (Wis.) and Jeff Sessions (Ala.), because they put dollars and cents above the interests of the nation’s veterans.

“There is a cost of going to war that includes taking care of those who come home wounded, ill and injured, and if these three senators have determined that we can’t afford to properly care for our veterans, then they should seek employment elsewhere!” exclaimed VFW National Commander William A. Thien.

Just a moment of remembrance for the democrats who ran and lost

they begged people for money
they may have not been the most experienced politicians and were not perfect in every thing they said, They put their lives on hold to run for office, put hours of unpaid work in (as did their friends and family), they lived good lives that were torn apart with insidious insults flung out by their opponents and he secret whisper campaigns that are impossible to fight against. And they lost.

Then they get to be torn apart by fellow democrats telling them about all their mistakes and seeing their imperfection as character flaws and jumping to conclusions blaming them for things they did not do but others accused them of doing. Then the next election people will wonder why you can't get good candidates. They were out there and they lost because of all the money they had to fight against. Some times even at the school board level, you would be surprised at the money spent against them.

The only way to survive in the future, is not to be so quickly to tear our own candidates down, and live in a country where people care enough to vote and realize there will never be a perfect candidate for them,
