1382588931WASHINGTON, Oct. 24, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — In Washington, D.C., there is some very good news. The pro-adoption “Choose Life” License Plate, sponsored by The Children First Foundation of DC was welcomed into the DC DMV’s Organizational Tag Program yesterday. Without a hitch or glitch, several DC “Choose Life” tags with their two smiling children and positive message are already rolling on the roads of our Nation’s Capital.

Dr. Elizabeth Rex, the President and Co-Founder of The Children First Foundation, is very grateful to the many DMV officials that both she and Larry Cirignano, CFF’s Representative in DC, encountered during the entire application and approval process. “Everyone was very professional and helpful from start to finish,” said Larry Cirignano.

The colorful, red-white-and-blue DC “Choose Life” tag joins several other very colorful and diverse organizational tags including tags for the Bad Boys Club, the National Association of Black Scuba Divers, the Porsche Club of America, the Prince Hall Masonic Family, the Spirit of Faith Christian Center, as well as several organizational tags for veterans, fraternities and various colleges, including the University of Michigan.

As stated on the official DC DMV website, “organizational tags are a marvelous way for an organization to promote itself while allowing its members to demonstrate a commitment of pride.”

The proud mission of The Children First Foundation is to raise greater awareness and funding for Adoption and Safe Haven efforts. “Our members believe adoption is a loving choice for an unwanted unborn or newborn infant that deserves greater public awareness,” said Dr. Rex. “It is a mature, courageous, intelligent, pro-life choice that everyone can support,” she added.  “Adoption gives the greatest gift of all — the Gift of Life.”

Organizational tags may only be purchased by members who are in good standing with their organization and who must also pay a one-time fee of $100 to the DC DMV.

DC residents who wish to purchase a District of Columbia “Choose Life” Tag are encouraged to visit www.thechildrenfirst.org for more information. For further assistance or to help CFF “mobilize” a Culture of Life in DC, please call Larry at (202) 306-6863.

Occupy Protestors Use Kids As Human Barricades In D.C.

I have no idea why occupy protestors have found their approval ratings dropping with mainstream Americans.  Maybe videos like this can shed light…

What do you guys think?  Is this how a “protest” should be done?  Is it ever okay to use kids as human barricades?  And how many stories like this will it take before the mainstream media ends their romance with the “Occupy” movement?  Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Occupy D.C. Protestors Resort To Nursery Rhymes… Sorta…

I know the title says the Occupy D.C. protestors “resorted to nursery rhymes”, but after watching these two videos, it might come off like I’ve given them too much credit.  It’s just that I couldn’t fit “Protestors In D.C. Stand Around In An Unorganized Fashion And Continuously Shout The Same Five Words Over And Over Again” into the headline.  So… “Resort To Nursery Rhymes” is the headline you got.  Here it is.  Check it out, check it outers.

By the way, that cluster (situation) in the videos above was taking place at the “Defending The American Dream Summit” in D.C. this weekend, a summit that just happens to be attended by members from this website.  Hopefully they’ll update us on some of the “occupy” action before the weekend’s over.  Until then, here’s a write up that CDN’s Brian Cook did on his experience there so far.

So what do you guys think?  Did I give the protestors too much credit? (I sorta think I did…)  Or do you think they were just a bunch of fine Americans, exercising their 1st Amendment rights, and I was too hard on them?  Let us know in the comments below, or you can just stand in front of my house and yell the same five words over and over again.  After all, it is a free country…
