The McDonalds Empire



Ray Kroc



Today marks the 60th anniversary of McDonalds corporation, in which Ray Kroc is credited with the founding of the first McDonalds in April 15, 1955.  It is true that he's the founder of corporate McDonalds, but he's not the original founder of McDonalds.  Prior to Ray Kroc's obtaining the McDonalds restaurant, a couple of brothers named Maurice "Mac" and Richard "Dick" McDonald, open their first restaurant, an octagonal shaped building selling hamburgers and barbeque.  They had carhops when that restaurant.  In 1948, they redesigned the building and they no longer employed carhops.  They had a more traditional menu consisting of hamburgers, cheeseburgers, French fries, milkshakes, and soft drinks.  They employed the use of multimixers to mix their shakes.  They used as many as eight multimixers at a time.  That caught the attention of Illinois businessman Ray Kroc, who sold multimixers.  He made a special trip to San Bernadino, California to check out the success of McDonalds.  It was through that trip that caused Kroc to purchase McDonalds and start his mass franchising system on April 15, 1955.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), announced his candidacy to run for the presidency last week in Louisville when he announced to the audience "We have come to take our country back."  Paul, an ophthalmologist, never held political office until he ran for the open Senate seat in Kentucky by retiring Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY).  He is epitomized as a firebrand independent conservative who's supposedly been at odds with some of his own party such as Senators John McCain and Senator Marco Rubio.  In his speech, he hurled criticism at both parties in Washington.  Click on the above link to read about Paul's candidacy for president.

Indiana Uproar is About the Replacement of Christian Values With Secular Values

Indiana Uproar is About the Replacement of Christian Values With Secular Values


Syndicated Columnist Pat Buchanan

There used to be a time when America upheld Christian values.  Sodomites didn't parade around town demanding their "rights".  There was no such concept as gay marriage.  Hotel owners didn't rent rooms out to unmarried couples.  The gay and liberal community are so hysterical over the law that the state of Indiana passed under Governor Mike Pence which allows businesses the right to stand up for their Christian values.  What does that mean?  It means that if a floral business or a cake business is opposed to gay marriage, then they have the right to conduct business with homosexuals regarding "gay" weddings.  This law grants business owners the right to act on their own conscience when it comes to issues revolving around moral values.  Take a look how the liberals are handling this.  They're calling the Hoosier state homophobes and bigots.  They say it's wrong for businesses to discriminate against gay Americans.  I have news for them, Discrimination is as old as the Bible.  Any serious student of the Bible will read where God is discriminatory when it comes to saved and lost people.  God says there's only one way to be saved:  That's through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ plus nothing minus nothing.  There's no margin of error.   I know of another example.  This weekend the Final Four will be played in Indianapolis, Indiana.  I guarantee the four teams that made it to the Final Four have coaches who are very discriminatory concerning the type of players that they allow to play on their ream.  All four coaches won't allow any player to come on the floor to play basketball if they don't make the cut.  If they can't rebound, shoot the ball, and pass the ball, etc., then their playing time will be very limited or else they won't play at all.  Life is about discrimination.  There's a reason why God is opposed to sodomy.  The Bible says that sodomy is unnatural.  God's plan is for one man and one woman to unite in marriage.  That's simple.  God does discriminate.  That's plain and simple.  To read the full story, click on the above link.
