July 4th 2015!

Couldn’t happen to a better kind of guy!!!

NEW YORK — A former firefighter who responded to the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, has won $5 million on a lottery scratch-off ticket.

Carmelo Mercado was presented with an oversized check Thursday. The 63-year-old, who’s retired, gets $3.3 million in a lump-sum payment after taxes are taken out.

Mercado was among the members of Queens Battalion 49 who went to the World Trade Center on Sept. 11. He now lives in Orange County, north of New York City.

Ex-firefighter Wins Lottery


“Feel Good 4th of July” Sweet Friends~!


The Leftards can celebrate Cinco de Mayo and errr…May Day for all I care.eek

Yup. Harvard whining. droning malcontents who despise America, Israel, and ALL religion-unless its …um….Islam or Wiccan…

Leftards, who have no respect for our Founding Fathers, their cherished principles, and basically anything sacred or righteous.


Libs who can’t abide any time honored traditions which are celebrated by the vast majority of those left sane in this Nation we still call America.

Oh..Don’t be surprised if they try to outlaw INDEPENDENCE DAY altogether.flagwave..cuz ya know if may offend some Muzlims………or illegal aliens or somethin.

And not for nothin– but the “rockets red glare” prolly aint “green” enough for the granola munchin, tree huggin, Ar-ab Spring luvin, environmentalists…so please refrain from singin it too loudy eh.

Well sweet Friends..


Y’all just keep on congregating at events that celebrate America’s greatness and good fortune.

Stay grateful and proud of your country despite the grouchers and self haters amongst you.



And hey… save me somethin from the BBQ eh?usagirlani
