You will not see this heart-stopping photo on the front
page of the NY Times or on the lead story of the major news networks.
The protestors put up the Mexican flag over the American flag flying
upside down at Montebello High School in California .
I predict this stunt will be the nail in the coffin of
any guest-worker/amnesty plan on the table in Washington . The image of
the American flag subsumed to another and turned upside down on American
soil is already spreading on Internet forums and via e-mail.
Pass this along to every American citizen in your
address books and to every representative in the state and federal
government. If you choose to remain uninvolved, do not be amazed when
you no longer have a nation to call your own nor anything you have
worked for left since it will be "redistributed" to the activists while
you are so peacefully staying out of the "fray". Check history, it is
full of nations/empires that disappeared when its citizens no longer
held their core beliefs and values. One person CAN make a difference.
One plus one plus one plus one plus one plus one.........
The battle for our secure borders and immigration laws
that actually mean something, however, hasn't even begun.
If this ticks YOU off...PASS IT ON!

GIRO TRIUMPH! Di Luca & Team Liquigas WIN The 2007 Giro d'Italia!
Di Luca and Team Liquigas WIN The 2007 Giro d'Italia!
Posted on June 3, 2007 3:59:21 PM
It's podium time for the Giro Champion Danilo Di Luca and his teammates after 21 stages of tactical racing and spectacular performances by the entire team.
According to Cyclingnews.com, "Di Luca closed out the Corsa Rosa as champion in style thanks to an arm-chair ride to the finish line by his Liquigas squadra.
"I was the strongest, I rode a great Giro," noted the Milram sprinter after the stage. He had recorded his 24th career Giro stage, putting him on par with Giuseppe Saronni.
Milram did not move to the fore of stage 21 until the final kilometres, but when they did take over the reins from Liquigas it was a full bore push to the line for an Alessandro Petacchi victory. The 33 year-old from La Spezia is on a wave of success after suffering terribly for a year due to his crash in the 2006 Giro.
"Like Di Luca said yesterday, this is a beautiful race," continued the out-of breath stage winner. "24 wins in the Giro, and five this year. Last year, I was forced to be on the couch and I had to watch on TV, between then and now I have done a lot of work.""
Read the full story at CyclingNews.com and check back here shortly. Lot's more to come on Di Luca, his team and those GREEN MACHINES that brought them all to crowning glory... Congratulations to Cannondale's Team Liquigas and THE KILLER, Danilo Di Luca. FEEL THE GREEN!

Di Luca To Defend Giro Lead Aboard Prototype TT Bike!
Saturday's penultimate stage of the Giro d'Italia will see Danilo Di Luca defending his lead of 2'24" over Andy Schleck in a 43 kilometer individual time trial. Di Luca will race aboard a prototype Cannondale Slice time trial bike that has been the topic of conversation since it was first spotted in the opening stage's team time trial, a stage that Team Liquigas won and began their successful Giro run.
As with all of Cannondale's high-performance bicycle designs, our latest offerings were designed with feedback from our professional racers. Team Liquigas riders Franco Pellizotti, Vincenzo Nibali and maglia rosa wearer Danilo Di Luca were the first to ride these great new technologies... and the results were fantastic.
Danilo Di Luca was the first to report back after the stage - "Questa bici e' uno spettacolo! (This bike is spectacular!)"
Look for more details on future Cannondale product being developed with Team Liquigas and the rest of our sponsored athletes!
