MX 7000 Lightbar for sale!

My fiance built the light bar from the frame up a few years ago... It is his pride and joy, but he got rid of his truck shortly before Christmas and it just wouldn't look right on his explorer! We're looking to get around $300 for it plus shipping costs unless whoever buys it is local... In that case, we can deliver for a couple of bucks to cover gas...

The lights in this bar are super bright and it is sure to let people know you are coming from a mile away! The light bar is the perfect size for a Ford F150 or a different truck of a similar size.

Here are the specs for you:

8 rotators (all blue)
forward facing blue flashers
blue intersection sweep lights
alley lights
rear 8 light amber arrow stick with control box
two rear led flashers(one on each side)...

Thank you very much to everyone who has supported SAVE, you have no idea how much it means to us! Recently, we have had a lot of success with having people going onto our website which is AWESOME!!! But we still need your help! All it takes is 30 seconds to go to the website and show your support for this amazing cause!

In case you don't know, SAVE (Support American Volunteer Efforts) is a grassroots effort that supports a bill in Congress (HR 4387) that would allow for up to a $2,000 tax credit for anyone who volunteers for any non-profit organization!

Why would volunteers be interested in getting money for VOLUNTEERING? Because volunteers are 2.5 times more likely to donate the money to organizations they know need it the most, like the places the volunteer for! Soup kitchens, churches, environmental organizations, fire houses, Volunteer EMT organizations, Hurricane Relief funds, and so much more!

There are over 90 million Americans who volunteer an average of 3.6 hours a week to fight our fires, care for our children and elderly, help improve our schools, take care of our sick and dying, help improve our environment and much, much more!!

All we are asking for is 30 seconds of your time to go to our website at! and then help spread the word to your family, friends, neighbors, teachers, and strangers who you meet on the street! :)

Thank you all for your support and keep up the amazing work!

Thank you very much,
The SAVE Volunteers!!

Calling all college students!

Did you know that 89 million Americans volunteer?

Better yet, did you know that 46% of 18-24 year olds volunteer 3 or 4 hours a week?

It's true! This shows a dedication to volunteerism and political action beyond what students are generally known for.

This age group is the incoming generation of voters, policy makers and future leaders of America, and absolutely vital to the continuing success of volunteer service in their communities.

S.A.V.E. (Support American Volunteer Efforts) currently has a bill before Congress that if passed would grant up to $2,000 in a tax rebate to people who volunteer for nonprofit organizations.

The only way to pass this bill is to let Congress know that Americans support it!

S.A.V.E (Support American Volunteer Efforts) is a nonprofit organization campaigning to pass bill HR4387, which is currently under review in the Ways & Means Committee of Congress.

If the bill were to be passed it would offer up to $2,000 per year in a tax rebate to every volunteer.

Volunteers are two a half times more likely to donate back to non-profits where they volunteer, and their communities. Rather than giving tax breaks to the wealthiest 1% of society this would help to put money back where it is sorely needed.

SAVE is a grass-roots organization. Our office has a staff of three full time employees and several volunteers. We're in the midst of a nation wide press release, selling the idea of SAVE to the media, non-profit and volunteer agencies around the country.

The only way to pass this bill is to let congress know that Americans support it! The easiest way to do this is to vote for SAVE at our website.

Woman firefighters!!!! Yes we can do it too

I felt really ill today, maybe because I stayed up until 6 o'clock in the morning "Hee hee" But it was for educational reason's...really. I was watching a PBS special on woman firefighters in New York and their struggle to gain equal respect. I mean wow the horrible things these women went through just because they wanted to prove that they weren't any less than a man. I mean some were raped, beat, threaten many times. Most were fired and still went to work. Their are only 3 woman high ranking officer's in the fire department in New York, one named Brenda who really was the leader of the woman’s only real hope; and the two others also had tragic stories. I cant remember her name but this black woman finished her training and they set her up with a department that had not only disliked the idea of a woman working their but had never worked with even a black male, on her first day a group of the fire"men's" wife's stood outside and protested and that woman walked through them and had went to work, she was later slashed crossed the face with a kitchen knife by a drunk worker who wouldn’t let her take down a sign that plainly stated "woman shouldn't work like men" They let that man off on parole and a fine. And this was not many years ago this all is in a 20 year time span and the most resent problem was on the sept.11 People thought that because no woman firefighters died that it was unfair. After listening to that program I’ve realized that my issues are so small in comparison to these women’s. I'd never be able to walk into a crowd of people hating me just because I’m black and a woman, and I’m really both. My mother's black and father's white. I couldn’t do it but they did, and because they did now if I ever have a daughter like I hope than she will be able to be a firefighter if she chose’s. And I’d encourage that too, I think this world is too set on young girls having to choose one way or the other. I want to be a housewife and tell my children to be whatever they want to be. Not raise them to do as I did, because I choose this cause I wanted too, not because I had to. Their is nothing wrong with masculine women and in this day and age I say DO IT, cause it's too dangerous to walk down the street by yourself, so instead of waiting for someone to help you, make yourself strong enough to DO IT yourself, it will make you feel better about everything. That’s why I took self defense class and will be taking them again soon, its life or death people so make your decision to be left behind in an age where you must be a man to get by, or become a woman who WILL get by.
