Would you say no to the Vice President?
One New River Valley business owner turned Vice President Joe Biden down.
This might happen more than you think from both political parties, most businesses just don't talk about it. The owner of "Crumb and Get It" - did.

McMurray said he's hoping folks will understand he just didn't want to be part of a photo op for an administration whose policies he doesnt agree with.
I was in Radford yesterday trying to get take care of some personal business only to find I couldn’t get into the area due to Biden’s little visit. Didn’t give a hoot about seeing Biden...but it was cool to see the secret service and all those officers on motorcycles...now THEY were cool.
The beer stand at the fair should have said to the President we don’t serve your kind, Democrats that is.
:) don’t you mean socialists?
...”McMurray said he’s hoping folks will understand he just didn’t want to be part of a photo op for an administration whose policies he doesnt agree with”...
It takes courage to challenge the Chicago machine. God bless McMurray for standing up to be counted.
I sense even the secret service is getting tired of carrying the water and cannot wait for Obama to lose in November.
When King “o” came to Rolls Royce here in Prince George County below Richmond a couple of months ago, it was nothing but a pain in the rear. These folks invite themselves and then wait for lowly local politicians and common folks to rush forward to kiss their ring. I’m astonished how far we’ve fallen so fast.
His dog Pepe was a weird dog. The most docile Chow I ever met.
When King Barry was in my town about a year ago, he commandeered a local restaurant. Ever since he was there, I refuse to patronize the place and tell all tourists to avoid the restaurant....because if they support Barry, then I don’t support them.
The SS felt the same way about the Clintons, although it was Hillary the despised and thought Bill was a regular guy.
Brass Cohones Award Winner in my book
“Here’s the back story, were told that shortly after Crumb and Get It told Bidens advance people ‘no’ — the secret service walked in and told Chris McMurray ‘’Thanks for standing up and saying ‘no’ — then they bought a whole bunch of cookies and cupcakes.
McMurray said he’s hoping folks will understand he just didn’t want to be part of a photo op for an administration whose policies he doesnt agree with.”
THAT’S the story here!!!!! Cool!!!!
Wanna bet those secret service guys got their pink slips? He should have kept that part to himself.
My guess is the comments were not political but more like thanking them for not putting themselves in a situation where they were not happy to have Biden their. They don't need that complexity, especially if the press is their, it may show on their faces and they do not need that on top of their Jobs...
If you want on/off the VA Ping List, please freepmail me. Thanks!
I liked this part "...shortly after Crumb and Get It told Bidens advance people 'no' -- the secret service walked in and told Chris McMurray ''Thanks for standing up and saying 'no' -- then they bought a whole bunch of cookies and cupcakes."
However, those of us that are still around, and still standing solidly on the our basic principals of our founding Fathers, look for new Allies that will NOW take up the banners and willing to face the enemies HEAD ON..
This young businessman, The owner of Crumb and Get It, says he doesn't agree with the Obama administration's policies, and is willing to take the heat that few, have been willing to do.. (Chick Fil A, Masterpiece Cake Shop, in Lakewood Colorado, RBC Wealth Management, The Minnesota Twins, Cargill, etc) The few that have, are quickly attacked from the LEFT, and have been savagely battered in the media..
Lets not let him down, Those of us, having an opportunity to be near his area, GIVE HIM YOUR FULL SUPPORT..
Given the recent SS scandals, it seems like they were taking notes from Bill.

SUPPORT THIS WONDERFUL AMERICAN BUSINESS! THESE AMERICANS BUILT THEIR OWN BUSINESS!!
Great. When are the people in the SS going to start doing the same? I couldn't work for a fraud and a usurper, but these people don't seem to have any problem with it.
Marker for sympathy purchase but they’re closed now.
His IRS audit is probably in the mail.
Even local television runs cover for the lout we have in OUR house.
If a business told the Republicans no, you wouldn't see something like, "This might happen to both parties." It would be job one to make sure it looked as austere as possible.
DNCp, at it again...
KUDOS ALL AROUND!
I hope the small-minded, vindictive creatures in this Regime don’t try to “make him pay.” I bet he can expect, at a minimum, an audit from the IRS...
UPDATE: After declining Biden stop yesterday, Radford bakery ran out of food today, had to close at 1:15 PM!!
I love it! People are voting their approval!
I'm not at all surprised, their facebook page is getting hundreds of comments per hour today. They need to hurry up and get a mail order system up while the wave is cresting, or at least offer t-shirts.
Have you heard of a cash mob? This seems like the perfect business to do that for. Just read that they had to close early today after running out of food!
Given the antics of the SS in Columbia, I'd say they were trained by The Bent One.
“Like” them, make a comment and offer to buy cookies and have them sent to a local charity!
I sent a check today and told them to give the FREEDOM COOKIES to a local charity. Another good idea would have been to have them delivered to the local ROMNEY/RYAN campaign office for the volunteers there.
“No small business loan for you, EVER!” will be the vindictive counter attack, plus an audit by the IRS.
You bet Chris McMurray has cojones, to refuse to allow the Obama campaign to “stop.” (After all , he didn’t build that!/S)
And who would want Joe Biden drooling on a perfectly clean bakery floor?
BTW, the real SS presidential guard all have retired or transferred. These guys are amateurs, and quite dangerous.
The thread article is worth reading in its short entirety.
“We don’t serve mentally challenged people who are unsupervised”.
From what I understand, the beer stand didn't have the authority to say no. The State Fair officials who he rents the tent and grounds from just told him that POTUS was going to be there and he had no choice but to go along.
