This is the time of year Oktoberfest images are featured on Google, Yahoo, Bing and the other search engines. Big mugs of beer are carried by a buxom blonde in a low cut blouse, pigtails and suspenders. There are a thousand people in the tent screaming German songs. Her sister is close behind with a tray full of snitzel, weiner bratapus and an equally low cut blouse. I love the Germans. I love mugs of beer. I love the sisters. German is not my native tongue. The Germans make good stuff. Vdubs forever!
In 2009 Henry Louis Gates Jr. was arrest by Cambridge policeman Sgt. James Crowley. Henry Louis Gates Jr. is an ancestry expert. He has a TV show on PBS and is a best selling author. Gates returned home after a trip to China were he was researching Yo-Yo Ma’s ancestry. Gates found his front door jammed shut and with the help of his driver tried to force it open. A neighbor reported their activity to the police as a potential burglary in progress. Sgt. Crowley was dispatched to the home and arrested Gates ultimately charging him with disorderly conduct.
A couple of days go by and President Obama gets wind of the story and proclaims Sgt. Crowley and his police buddies to be stupid and possibly racist. All the charges on Gates are dropped but there is a big outcry by the public regarding the President’s remarks.
President Obama apologizes and invites Gates and Crowley to the White House to have a beer and smooth things over. Vice President Joe Biden is even invited to the White House Lawn event that is being touted as the Beer Summit. “Beer Summit” when compared to Oktoberfest could not be more misleading. No big mugs of beer, no buxom blonde, no low cut blouse, not even her sister showed up. As a matter of record only Vice President Biden even had a second beer. The Beer Summit should have been called the Beer Bust or the Beer Fraud.
We see two way radios advertised as 10 mile or 20 mile or even 30 mile radios. Balderdash! (Is balderdash a German word?) Hand held 2 way radios talk a mile or two. Any other claim is bogus. Don’t be fooled by claims of Beer Summit or 30 miles radios.
Let us help you find the best 2 way radios for your application. Doing business with 2 Way Radio Express is easy.
