Ronald McDonald: Criminal Menace
Our staff here at ReallyRight.com has been able to reconstruct the crime as follows.
Ronald McDonald met with his accomplice at the Round Table inside the local Pizza Hut. After much deliberation, Ronald and his partner agreed to a rather Shakey plan.
Using the Famous Star that Carlï¿½s Junior had given to Paris Hilton last summer; Ronald would distract Wendy by pretending to be a Subway inspector is search of the elusive Jack in the Box. Meanwhile, his accomplice would drink an A & W rootbeer float to hide his face from security cameras as he went In and Out of the office. His partner would grab more loot than Long John Silverï¿½s treasure chest and head for the local Quiznoï¿½s.
After a quick Stop nï¿½ Shop, he was ToGo to Ricoï¿½s.
Ronald entered the Wendyï¿½s at 7:11. All was going according to plan until the Burger King pulled into the drive-thru for a Frosty. Once he saw Ronald, the King rang the Taco Bell. Colonel Sanders and his posse came to the assistance of Wendyï¿½s manager, Mr. Hardeyï¿½s.
Ronald was pursued past the Outback outhouse and the Texas Roadhouse to Ruth Cristï¿½s Steakhouse. After a brief peppering, he surrendered in the Olive Garden.

In God We Trust
My name is Katherine and I am a 14 year old girl writing a blog for the first time. I have decided to talk about Michael Newdowï¿½s latest lawsuit to take the phrase ï¿½In God We Trustï¿½ off of the nationï¿½s currency.
The fact that Newdow does not seem to get is that most of our Founding Fathers were Christians and held a strong Christian worldview. The most famous line of our Declaration is as follows:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
The Creator our founding fathers believed in, and trusted, in just happens to be the Christian God.
In fact, many of our Founding Fathers had been ministers or at least had studied theology. Abraham Baldwin (Georgia) had been a minister, along with Hugh Williamson (North Carolina), James Madison (Virginia), and Oliver Ellsworth (Connecticut). Many more Founding Fathers had also studied theology and had not been ordained.
So, most of the Founding Fathers had been Christian, but what does that have to do with anything? Well, if the men who had signed the Declaration and Constitution were Christian, then these documents we use as a founding for all of Americaï¿½s laws were based on Christian principles. The Founding Fathers did put trust in the Christian God. Therefore, the phrase ï¿½In God We Trustï¿½ on Americaï¿½s currency is perfectly acceptable.
Newdow says that he ï¿½ï¿½ just wants the government to say that we donï¿½t have an opinion on religion. American citizens do what they want.ï¿½ Being a lawyer, he should be the first to know that the government does, in fact, have an opinion on religion. The government has intervened in religious practices from time to time, often with great restraint, when deciding when it is in the publicï¿½s best interest to intervene.
When Utah was becoming a state, one of the requirements that the government gave them was that they had to have a law prohibiting polygamy. Utah, as most know, is a Mormon state and polygamy used to be a major part of the Mormon religion. Joseph Smith, the man who started Mormonism, had 34 wives. Thus the government does have an opinion on religion and will not say what Newdow wants them to say.
Newdow also states that he would fight just as much if the government had said that there is no god. Why would he fight it, if it is his own belief? He would back that statement up with his own assumptions and his own lies. Thatï¿½s what this lawsuit is: a pack of lies.
