Calvin Coolidge – A Great President, Plus a Bonus Chicken Story

Calvin Coolidge was one of the great US presidents.

Listen to this Coolidge speech from 1924 and you’ll see why he is so often denigrated by today’s elites.

If every US president were like this man, imagine how much better off we’d all be today.

Thanks to Tammy.

PS: This is my favorite Coolidge story. Don’t know if its true, but I hope it is.

The President and Mrs. Coolidge were in separate parties touring a large chicken farm.

Mrs. Coolidge’s entourage happened upon a rooster getting very amorous with a chicken. The first lady was impressed and asked the farmer if this was a once a day event or was the rooster capable of repeat performances. The farmer assured Mrs Coolidge that indeed the rooster could carry out his duties several times daily.

Mrs. Coolidge turned to one of the entourage and said to him “please go and tell THAT to the President!”

When informed by the messenger of the rooster’s prowess, President Coolidge turned to a farmer in his entourage and asked “is this with one chicken or with different chickens?”

The farmer informed President Coolidge that this was indeed all with different chickens – several a day in fact.

President Coolidge turned to the messenger and said “please go and tell THAT to Mrs Coolidge.”


Update: Was the IHOP Gunman Strategically Targeting National Guardsmen?

Editor’s Note: As many of you know, I recently moved from Carson City, Nevada to Idaho. I am saddened to hear that this has happened. Friends there tell me of the nine shot, at least 5 were National Guardsmen. I am hearing that all three that died were in the National Guard, but I’ve only confirmed two of them. Our prayers and thoughts are with their families. I know the shooter took his own life. I hope he rots in hell for what he did.

Ken Furlong, the sheriff, is a good man and very good at his job. He’s someone you can trust. Carson City has seen a dramatic increase in meth abuse in the last decade and a massive influx of gangs. The schools in Nevada are among the worst in the nation. Thank you Harry Reid and President Obama. You didn’t pull the trigger, but your actions surely contributed to the bloodshed this morning.

This is why we moved. We saw the increase in violence there. My son still lives in Reno and I worry about him every day. This has nothing to do with guns – this is terrorism against our military and civilians.
