Raiders doing their part to fight hunger

The Oakland Raiders are partnering with the Alameda County Community Food Bank to help their neighbors in need as the region braces for a spike in need during the winter and holiday season.
Staff and families of the Raiders organization are sorting, screening, boxing and shelving food items in preparation for the busy holiday season in the Food Bank’s main warehouse in Oakland today, a week prior to Thanksgiving.
In addition, a number of Raiders players will spend their lone day off during the week—the Tuesday prior to Thanksgiving— visiting the food bank and assisting in the preparation of food items.
Fans are encouraged to support the Food Bank’s hunger relief efforts this Sunday before the Raiders-Saints game at the Coliseum by visiting their booth in Raiderville from 8:30 am – noon.
Fans are asked to make a monetary donation or donations of healthy non-perishable food items, such as canned meats and vegetables, pasta and sauce, peanut butter and low-sugar cereals. All proceeds go directly to the Food Bank’s hunger relief efforts.
Since 1985, the Alameda County Community Food Bank has been at the forefront of hunger-relief efforts in the Bay Area. This year the Food Bank will distribute 24 million pounds of food, more than half farm-fresh produce. The Food Bank serves one in six Alameda County residents by distributing food through a network of 275 food pantries, soup kitchens, and other community organizations.
For more information, visit www.raiders.com and www.accfb.org.
The Oakland Raiders are hosting a virtual food drive, encouraging fans to donate money to help the Food Bank purchase its most needed items. To participate, please go to https://www.vfd-accfb.org/grouphome.aspx?ID=555

    Yes. Religion is such a joke little Johnny. Isn’t it hilarious? I mean it’s so obvious to us important enlightened people that its all completely random and has no maker or design. What’s that? How do I explain the seasons, a system that has repeated itself for millennia? And all of the complex associations of the world that utterly defy “randomness”? Oh. Uh. C’mon little Johnny. We live in the Information Age. Umm. We are smarter than those dummies like Copernicus and Aristotle and all those others that lived do long ago. We’re smart people. Don’t ask me those kinds of questions.

    99,

    Why do you want to become a Jordanian citizen? Looking for more Palestinians to kill? lol
    Return the property you took from Jordan (the West Bank) in the late 60’s and I’m sure Jordan will allow you to become citizens.

    ===============================================
    O, we both know that in 67, Israel BEGGED King H to stay out of it.

    That fool made a big mistake. Resulted in an even bigger ‘occupation’.

    I’m glad YOU wouldn’t mind me becoming a Jordanian citizen.

    Unfortunately, Jordanian law states that Jews can’t be citizens.

    Interesting to note that some dumb Jews living in the ‘territories’ have said they’d like to remain in their homes in the event of the establishment of a ‘Palestinian’ nation there.

    Unfortunately, the ‘moderate’ Abbas (Arafat henchman and architect of the Munich massacre, thank you) has made it clear, that like in Jordan, Jews will not be able to be citizens.

    Do me a favor, Cousin…I want to coexist, not kill you. See what you can do about changing Jordanian law.

    Barbour: GOP needs a ‘proctology exam’

    (CNN) – While Republicans continue to soul search after their party’s loss in the presidential election, former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour injected a new term Wednesday to describe the GOP’s introspection.

    “The ground game is really important, and we have to be, I mean we’ve got to give our political organizational activity a very serious…” he said, taking a pause and looking for the right word. “Proctology exam. We need to look everywhere.”

    Canaanites and philistines were there before the Jews. Philistines?! I wonder why that sounds familiar?
    C’mon cousin.
    =============================================
    Sorry, cousin. I have to correct you again.

    The Canaanites were there before, yes.

    The Philistines ? No.

    The Philistines were a sea-faring nation that waged war against the Jews, but they were not there first.

    Never was their land.

    And of course Philistine sounds familiar.

    That’s the derivation of the word Palestine.

    That name was given to the region by the Roman conquerers as an insult to the Jews they massacred.

    But we both know the name Palestine can’t possibly be Arabic in nature as there is no ‘P’ in the Arabic language.

    That’s why Arabs to this day all say ‘Balestine’. LOL.

    Similarly, the city you Arabs call ‘Nablus’ is just the Arab pronunciation for what the Romans termed Annapolis.

    Not only isn’t it your land, you can’t properly pronounce the name of the region and cities you falsely claim to own.

    History, cousin.
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Arabs don’t say Balestine unless they are speaking English. Arabs say Palestine, and there is a reason for that.
    Speaking of history, allow me to correct YOU again:
    They were there before the Jews. Who did king David fight? Goliath who was a philistine?

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    The original inhabitatnts of the region now called palestine were black, they wer called Cannanite Natufians, phoenicians, carthiginians (carthgininas are also the origunal inhabitants of greece and italy and created the latin and greek languages).

    these original jews are still in existance in various pockets around the worl including Ethiopia wher it is said the arc of the covenant is still hidden. Although they er maliciously driven out by both late arriving arabs and whites under the banners of muslim and jew.

    Both given thioer religieons from afrikans, both used these religions as shields for their own devices against the very folks that brought them into the light of civilization

    Think about it O, 5 million Jews on a postage stamp sized nation that’s smaller than the state of New Jersey…Surrounded by 500 million Arabs and Persians with a combined land mass TWICE the size of the ENTIRE USA…clamoring about wiping Israel off the map and driving the ‘yahood’ into the sea…and what keeps happening over and over again ?

    The Arabs keep getting beat down in a fashion that makes the Raider whupping at the hands of the Ravens seem tame.

    I’m agnostic, but I gotta tell you – it’s hard to believe this stuff ISN’T divinely inspired.

    Btw, don’t confuse my hate for the state of Israel for hate against Jews “Yahood”. I don’t want to kill any Yahood, but I want to demolish the state of Israel.

    Face it O, Israel is building the Merkava tank, launching satellites, makes the best drones, radar systems, assault rifles and armaments on the planet.

    Israel will smash the Arabs without anyone’s assistance.
