    Mom and Pop Bakery says no to Joe!


    You’ll love this !!! Very impressive young
    businessman!!!

    Mom and Pop Bakery says 'no' to Biden - look what happened!

    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
    purposes.



    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.
