Image: Although you may think that this cow seriously needs a haircut, it’s actually a Scottish cow, what Montgomery County Republican Party Treasurer John Hill Wertz calls “Bò Ghàidhealach” in Gaelic. Of course, it’s a shame that the Scottish Cow Calendar for 2019 is more than halfway complete. Nevertheless, Wertz and other aficionados of Bò Ghàidhealach are undoubtedly working on the 2020 edition. If you want to see an amazing picture of the fierce creatures, please go to the bottom of this article to see a 2-month old version.
Conroe, July 20 – A busy week is coming for vigilant conservatives.
Saturday, July 20 – This day is the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Walk when The Eagle, the Apollo Lunar Module, landed on the Moon. Astronaut Neil Armstrong walked down the ladder of the Lunar Module and set foot on the Moon’s surface for the first time in history approximately 6 hours later. President Richard Nixon spoke with the astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin during a United States Flag planting ceremony as Armstrong and Aldrin stood on the Moon.
President Nixon: Hello, Neil and Buzz. I’m talking to you by telephone from the Oval Room at the White House. And this certainly has to be the most historic telephone call ever made. I just can’t tell you how proud we all are of what you’ve done. For every American, this has to be the proudest day of our lives. And for people all over the world, I am sure they too join with Americans in recognizing what an immense feat this is. Because of what you have done, the heavens have become a part of man’s world. And as you talk to us from the Sea of Tranquility, it inspires us to redouble our efforts to bring peace and tranquility to Earth. For one priceless moment in the whole history of man, all the people on this Earth are truly one: one in their pride in what you have done, and one in our prayers that you will return safely to Earth.
Neil Armstrong: Thank you, Mr. President. It’s a great honor and privilege for us to be here, representing not only the United States, but men of peace of all nations, and with interest and curiosity, and men with a vision for the future. It’s an honor for us to be able to participate here today.
