A Conservative View

Praying that Donald Trump can save America in 2024!


Good news

Last week the Secret Service walked into a small bakery in Radford, Virginia to ask
the owner, Chris McMurray, if he would like a chance at priceless publicity by
letting his tiny store, “Crumb and Get It”, be used as a photo op for Vice
President Biden. Heaven knows, Chris needed all the help he could get. He and
his wife had just started the small bakery only three months ago and were
struggling desperately to make a go of it with a workload that often required
the wife to work 24 hours straight. To the agents’ astonishment, however, Chris
respectfully but firmly said no. As a devout Christian (who ends each sale with
“God bless”), his religious beliefs were at odds with a President who’s flatly
refused to step foot inside a church (save for photo ops and funerals) since
gaining the Oval Office, has just endorsed gay marriage and won’t celebrate
Christmas but will celebrate Ramadan, etc. Chris was also at odds with that same
President for telling small business owners throughout America – “you didn’t
build that”. As Chris explained, he and his wife did build their store and thus
weren’t willing to it be used for the Obama administration’s political

Result? Though the female anchor of the local news channel
freaked out on the air by wondering aloud if Chris didn’t realize what trouble
he might cause for himself by snubbing the Vice President, the reality had been
the total opposite. Chris has been swamped with business. As he told the
reporter days later in amazement, the phone has been ringing nonstop with orders
from all over the country for Chris and his wife to deliver cookies and cupcakes
to homeless shelters, churches and nonprofit groups, etc. And get this, the
first orders came from the very Secret Service agents who’d requested the store
for the Biden photo op. Not only were the agents not shocked by Chris’ refusal,
they were so delighted that they ordered cookies and cupcakes for themselves on
the spot.
