Put your money where your mouth is.....

How many times do we hear politicians talk about helping the poor and then look at there personal charitable giving to see barely a penny's worth out of their pocket.

How many times do we hear people gripe and grumble about our government and then have the nerve to say they didn't vote.

How many times do we hear stories of people being robbed and people pretending not to see it because they don't want to get involved and then complain about the crime rate increasing.

As a young girl I grew up in a very small town and my folks owned the only grocery store....they refused to even say whether they were Democrat or Republican because it would hurt their business. Even I am not sure what their preference was but I remember thinking it wasn't right.  I would like to think as an adult now that I would have the courage to stand up for what I believe....perhaps that is why this recent story on FOX news impressed me so much. You may not agree with it but he has put his money where his mouth is and has even received death treats.

"To Whom it May Concern:
I thought you all might be interested in this. We will try to demonstrate once again that the bottom line for our business is principle, not money. Yes, it has been damaging at times but our values are intact. Effective immediately, if you voted for Obama, your money is no good here. You have proven beyond a doubt that you are not responsible enough to own a firearm. We have just put a sign up on the front door to save you the trouble of walking all the way in here.”

This is a gun shop in Pinetop, Az.
