The First Salvo

As the 100th anniversary of President Reagan’s birth approaches, I suppose now is a particularly auspicious time to launch this blog.  Since I suspect Hell will suffer the effects of global climate change before we see a federal holiday for Reagan, it falls to you and I to honor his memory in our own ways. 

How do you plan to commemorate Sunday, February 6, 2011?  Here’s a few personal suggestions:
  1. Given the current Left-wing goon squad tactics being employed against Chik-fil-A, I think it would be a fabulous idea if we all ate a special commemorative spicy chicken sandwich and large order of waffle fries, and a large chocolate peppermint shake (so long as you get it on the fifth, of course;-)
  2. On Sunday, maybe we should gather the fam around the table and talk to the young’uns about what it means to be an American as Reagan suggested in his farewell address as president.
  3. Get some exercise.  There’s no reason that a strong mind must be encased in a weak body.  Reagan himself was a life-long athlete and outdoorsman, from playing high school and college football, to serving as a lifeguard on the Rock River, to horseback riding and outdoor work at Rancho del Cielo, to adding one inch of muscle to his chest as a 70+ year-old president.
  4. Finally, have a good laugh.
