Congratulations RedState readers.
We have supported a small business, made a statement, and attracted the attention of the Wall Street Journal.
Since last Wednesday morning, Ron’s Home & Hardware has received roughly 240 orders for five-pound bags of rock salt. While buyers were scattered around the country, each requested the same delivery address in Portland, Maine – one of six state offices for U.S. Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe. John M. Thieling, co-founder of the Indianapolis-based company, says an employee turned to the Web for an explanation and found a blog entry on RedState.com urging readers to order bags of rock salt from Amazon.com and mail them to the senator’s office. Ron’s Home & Hardware sells rock salt through Amazon.
Very well done!
Headed back home today from New York. I’m sitting in the airport. This is one for the memories.
Yesterday, I got to hang out with Glenn Beck in his studio in the morning. Then I had lunch with Joe Scarborough. Lastly, I was on Hannity last night.
It was terrific and very productive. I also managed to wander through Central Park all afternoon just enjoying the very cool, fine day.
God is Good.
It’s sad. We have one more year before Evelyn goes off to school.
Yesterday she got moved up in Sunday School. In our church, at four, the child sits with the parents too. She won’t be four until the end of August, but since she’s an “advancing pre-K”, yesterday she attended big church for the first time.
I’ve really been depressed too. It’s a good thing she’s growing up. But it’s sad too. At least we still can watch Batman together. She’s a big fan of Batman: The Animated Series.
So sad. And she no longer calls me “daddy.” It’s “dad” now. And “mom” for Christy. Sigh.
But I bet she had some serious chafing.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is the greatest car review ever conducted. Ever. Watch the whole thing. It gets better and better, then reaches a glorious crescendo of badassness.
It’s raining on my lawn. And it’s all flowing into a creek behind my house.
Nonetheless, the government wants to tax me because of it.
This is perhaps one of the most disturbing parts of Barack Obama’s speech to the muslim world.
While insisting on the reality of the holocaust, something many muslims deny, Barack Obama puts the genocide of 6 million Jews in the same category of what has happened to the Palestinians — something largely inflicted on themselves through their suicide bombings, calls for the destruction of Israel, etc. He treats them as morally equivalent.
Read this passage from today’s speech:
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine.
And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten.
This day came ye out in the month Abib.
And it shall be when the LORD shall bring thee into the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee, a land flowing with milk and honey, that thou shalt keep this service in this month.
Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to the LORD.
Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters.
And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which the LORD did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt.
And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD’s law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt.
Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in his season from year to year.
Exodus 13:1-10 (KJV)
