America Supports You: Americans Can Text ‘Thanks’ to Troops

WASHINGTON, Nov. 16, 2007 – For those seeking a quick way to show appreciation for the troops’ service far from home this holiday season, look no further than “Giving Thanks,” a new initiative from the Defense Department’s America Supports You program.

Americans can send text messages of thanks and get responses from active-duty troops through the “Giving Thanks” initiative of the Defense Department’s America Supports You program.

America Supports You connects citizens and corporations with military personnel and their families serving at home and abroad.

“This is a simple way to connect our citizens to our soldiers using modern technology,” Allison Barber, deputy assistant secretary of defense for internal communications and public liaison, said of the text messaging program.

The program, which already has received nearly 4,000 messages, officially kicks off at 6 a.m. EST Nov. 17 and concludes at midnight PST Nov. 22. Between those times, people wishing to express gratitude to the troops for their service can text a brief message to 89279. Each text message sent will receive a response from an active-duty servicemember in return.

Major mobile wireless providers, including AT&T, Verizon, Sprint Nextel, and T-Mobile, will provide access to the Giving Thanks text messaging program.

“We know that thousands of families will be sitting down for Thanksgiving dinner and thinking about loved ones who are far away from home serving their country,” Barber said. “We are counting on other American families to take a moment during their holiday celebration to think of those families and their family members who are serving and say, ‘Thanks.’

C’mon. Give it a shot. It’ll take just a few seconds and you’ll make some troop’s day.

Can’t argue with that.

Lightning Drunks strike twice.

What’s better than more weird news from Michigan?

Weird news from Michigan that involves two random drunk drivers — plowing into the same building.

At the same time.

Drunk drivers slam into same business

HIGHLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Police said two men face drunken driving charges after losing control of their cars and simultaneously driving into the same business.

WDIV-TV said the 21-and 22-year-old drivers were heading north on Milford Road in western Oakland County’s Highland Township, when both lost control of their vehicles and drove into the Carpet Classic Floor Studio.

Police say the drivers ran from their cars, but deputies tracked them down at their nearby homes.

Authorities are still investigating.

They may have been racing and wiped each other out. But, I prefer to imagine that they both just sort of arrived at the same location within seconds of each other. That must have freaked them out, huh?

CNN’s Plantapalooza

Posted by mesablue on November 20, 2007

Remember those “undecided” voters that asked questions at the Democratic presidential debate on CNN last week?

Well, so did quite a few people around the blogosphere. It turns out that most of them were plants. Democratic activists and former staffers.

CNN. Not even trying to hide the bias anymore.

You’d think that they’d try a little harder when attempting to put one over on us after being caught out so many times in recent years.

No credibility whatsoever.

Update: Gateway Pundit has a Lovely Box of Plants.

Also, an excellent roundup at D=S.
