Representative Antonio Manuel Fernández of New Mexico | US House of Representatives: History, Art & ArchivesAntonio Manuel Fernández, the fourth Hispanic-American Representative elected to the House from New Mexico, was born on this date. He attended local schools and studied at Highlands University in Las Vegas, New Mexico. Fernández subsequently earned a law degree at Cumberland University in Lebanon, Tennessee, returning to Sante Fe to open a private practice. He also served in a number of prominent positions such as assistant district attorney and in the state assembly. Elected to the 78th Congress (1943–1945) during World War II, Fernández pursued a bold agenda during his freshman term. He lobbied for the rank promotion of prisoners of war in the Pacific Theater, many of whom were New Mexico National Guardsmen. “Promotion,” he declared, “. . . is only a token of the Nation’s gratitude for the valor of all those men who held the Japanese at bay for many months without hope of rescue.” Their families, he added, looked “to Congress for some recognition of the aggravated circumstances under which they fell.” Fernández also supported the Serviceman’s Readjustment Act (or G. I. Bill) of 1944, and the establishment of an Air Force academy. He was successfully re-elected to seven more terms. On October 25, 1956, Fernández suffered a stroke while campaigning for an eighth term. Even after he lapsed into a coma, voters returned him to office on November 6 though he passed away the following day. Majority Leader John McCormack of Massachusetts remembered Fernández as “a great man in this body” whose legislative contributions were “of great benefit not only to the people of his State . . . but to the people of our entire country.”

It just offers you what you need for riding. It's a very distinct spirit the freedom and every meter the bike empowers you to do your own thing. To me, our new R9T scrambler is fascinating new but also the well-established concept.

R nine T scrambler R nine T scrambler R nine T scrambler R nine T scrambler R nine T scramblerR nine T scrambler Detail-wise BMW focused on high material quality. everything is steel aluminium and they all speak the classic 90's language. The difference to what the BMW R9T is a much more rugged and offloaded feeling. The 90's scrambler features are a 19-inch front wheel it has a slightly raised chassis exhaust system is raised - we have a new instrument dial, we have a telescopic front fork with four Gators also mounted then we have cast wheels a one-piece seat for two persons which is scrambler typical a little higher than in the roadster so you sit in a more upright position this also helps a little for taller riders. This is our generation of the last air-cooled boxer with 500CC capacity. Easy to ride easy to handle you enjoy riding, you forget about the rest of the day, you cruise around the city, you can take shortcuts if you want to write the next country road if you like take maybe a gravel road so that's the all-around bike for me yet for the rubble at heart in yourself. Customizing is part of a lifestyle to impress your own personality in the bike you ride. Therefore, BMW offers a bunch of possibilities to individualize your bike second instrument I, for example, BMW offer side plates spoke wheels instead of the car speeds are, typical knobby tires and then BMW have accessories like the single seater.
