World Net Daily's Fitting Tribute to Ronald Reagan
I've been wondering how best to honor Ronald Reagan and so was very happy to come across this well-thought out plan proposed over at World Net Daily.
GRANTS PASS, Ore. – Residents of Simi Valley, Calif., have the Reagan Library, and denizens of Washington, D.C., will be able to attend the various observances this week honoring Ronald Reagan. But what can the rest of America's citizens do to personally honor him, other than watch the events unfold on their television sets?
Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best.
And even if they're not the best, well, they're still the simplest.
"Ronald Reagan always talked about his beloved 'shining city on a hill,'" said Bob Just, a veteran talk-show host and WorldNetDaily columnist. "So, let's shine our headlights from now until Independence Day. Let's give Ronald Reagan one more July 4th with the people who love him."
Biblical reference to a land set apart by God, high beams on a Hyundai...yeah, pretty much the same thing.
"I loved Ronald Reagan," he said. "We'll all be watching this week's events on television but that's not enough. I think most of us want to do something personally to celebrate the life of the man who gave America back to itself."
So if I understand Bob correctly, we should all get into our automobiles and drive them around to honor President Reagan. Come to think of it, maybe that does seem like a fitting way to remember him. James Watt would be so proud.
Just is launching the idea locally on KAJO radio in Grants Pass, but hopes other talk show hosts, columnists, websites and news outlets will pick up the torch and inspire the millions of Americans who loved Ronald Reagan to "turn on their lights for the Gipper."
You know what this means, right? If you see somebody driving around without his lights on, he's probably a mean-spirited liberal. Or a gang member who'll kill you if you flash your lights at him. Not really that dissimilar when you think about it.
