"Chris The Baker" Goes Viral
It's just Internet awesome!
The outpouring of support for "Chris the Baker" aka "Crumb and Get It" has been phenomenal.
Yeah, Chris McMurray is the guy that turned down a visit to his bakery from Joe Biden and his entourage the other day because of Obama's recent comment, "You didn't build that".
So according to King Obama... small business owners.. they didn't build their business... somebody else made that happen...and that comment annoyed a lot of people... a lot...including Mr. McMurray.
So, Mr. McMurray took a courageous stand. When Joe Biden was in his town and an advance team came to "Crumb and Get It" to set up a visit from Biden ...Chis McMurray basically said that the Vice President was not welcome for a photo-op in his establishment.. He said, "No offense to you or the campaign but I just decline you guys coming in here."
"Chris the Baker" said NO to the Vice President!
He took a stand against this Marxist administration that believes business owes everything to government! Joe Biden then ended up going elsewhere for his photo-op, although the story goes that Secret Service came back and praised Mr. McMurray for his stand and bought a bunch of cookies and cupcakes!
After that, the flood gates opened!
The support from people across the country for Mr. McMurray and his business, and the stand he took, has been incredible!
Mr. McMurray and his wife have been deluged with orders from across the country - and Thursday he had to close his shop early because he simply ran out of food!
I just love the support the folks at Crumb and Get It Cookie Company are receiving!! More than a day ago they had just 400 "Likes" on their Facebook page, and now a day later they have well over 7,900!!! If you haven't already, drop by and give these folks a "Like" and a THANK YOU for telling Joe Biden's entourage how small business owners really feel about who built their business!! Then spread the word!!!
You might even phone, twitter (twitter handle: @pastorchrismc), mail, or snail mail and order of cookies or cupcakes.
I sent him some money in the mail with instructions to send the cookies to the local Veteran's Hospital in Roanoke.
Bravo "Chris the Baker"!
You are a true Patriot!
