    Col. Harry Riley Speaks to Americans Talk Show Along With Deborah Howard Operation American Spring has sprung. The momentum has been building, and our forces growing, for over eight months. The cries of millions of Patriots coalesce, in this coalition of Constitutionalists. We come with courage of conviction, with peace in our hearts. We are determined to mass. We will make our voices heard! We are armed only with our prayers. Our determination to rescue the government of the United States of America from the amoral enemies of Liberty is without bound. We must not fail! We come to the seat of power to speak truth. America has fallen away from the founding principles of freedom that once made her prosperous and great. We have become a nation not of liberty and law, but of elitist intimidation and crony corruption. Merit and hard work mean nothing anymore. No longer are American citizens free to exercise their God-given rights without interference from government. We come not as an attacking army of invaders, but in the bold vision of OAS founder Col. Harry Riley, as a massive 'human petition', demanding our elected Representatives begin the long-overdue task of cleansing our government of corrupt and criminal elements who have usurped their proper role as servants, and seek to rule, instead.

    Halloween is coming up, and the Gwinnett County Department of Fire and Emergency Services wants to remind you to be safe. Here are a few tips to use on Halloween night: ?For your home: Only use decorations that are tested by an independent laboratory Never overload electrical outlets with holiday lighting or special effects Keep paper and dry decorations such as leaves, cornstalks, and hay bales away from open flames or any other heat source Use flashlights in jack-o-lanterns instead of candles to prevent a fire Avoid using decorative candles at Halloween festivities and parties, especially around pets and small children Eliminate tripping hazards on your porch or walkway to the front door; light the path for a safe entry and exit for children ?Costumes: Costumes should fit properly; baggy sleeves or billowing capes pose a tripping hazard as well as a fire hazard Use soft or flexible props for costumes and avoid those that have sharp points or jagged edges If kids are carrying toy weapons as part of their costumes, make sure they do not look authentic; use only soft or plastic toy replicas to prevent injury Carry a flashlight or glow stick as part of the costume Consider adding reflective tape to costumes and trick-or-treat bags for better visibility Choose costumes that are bright-colored and made of flame-resistant materials; look for a fire-retardant label on any store-bought costume More...
