W Ketchup Toasts French President

DISCLAIMER: AS you read this post, remember that I am a very conservative Republican but have friends who are not. I also realize that because a friend and I don't agree on all things political, it needn't harm our friendship! I don't intend to offend anyone with this post, only share a couple of stories that do my heart good! Enjoy!
*************************************************************

I don't know if any of you have heard of W Ketchup or not. My family became familiar with W Ketchup during the 2004 presidential campaign. Remember, it was George W. Bush vs. John Kerry, husband of Theresa HEINZ Kerry. My son, Shane, age 8 at that time, very wisely decided that our household should not purchase any food items with the name HEINZ on them! We agreed! To make things more interesting, Shane made it his mission for that campaign year, to turn as many HEINZ ketchup bottles backwards on the grocery store shelves as time would permit! Of course, we didn't stop him! We still order W Ketchup from time to time because it tastes good, but mostly because W Ketchup donates a portion of every purchase to the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund, which helps fund college tuition for the children of America’s fallen heroes.

I remember when a long time friend, who now lives in Pennsylvania, came down to visit us for Thanksgiving. When she mentioned something about Democrats in Pennsylvania, Shane's mouth flew open in surprise and he exclaimed incredulously: "What? You mean you have Democrats all the way up in Pennsylvania too?!!!?" We all laughed so hard at the shock portrayed by this young "conservative"!

I said all that to say this! Ever since my first order of W Ketchup, I have been receiving email updates from the company. I really want to share today's email as it goes hand in hand with Veteran's Day. I watched, via C-SPAN, as the new French President spoke to the joint session of congress this week and was thrilled to detect a refreshing change in tone as he appears to be PRO-AMERICAN! Now if we could only get a few more American citizens on board!

W Ketchup Toasts French President Sarkozy this Veterans Day

Eagle Bridge, NY — November 11, 2007 — Last week newly elected French President Nicolas Sarkozy visited Washington, the first official visit by a French president in six years. Before visiting Mt. Vernon, the home of George Washington, Sarkozy addressed a joint session of Congress, saying:

The men and women of my generation heard their parents talk about how in 1944, America returned to free Europe from the horrifying tyranny that threatened to enslave it. Fathers took their sons to see the vast cemeteries where, under thousands of white crosses so far from home, thousands of young American soldiers lay who had fallen not to defend their own freedom but the freedom of all others, not to defend their own families, their own homeland, but to defend humanity as a whole.
. . .
To those 20-year-old heroes who gave us everything, to the families of those who never returned, to the children who mourned fathers they barely got a chance to know, I want to express France’s eternal gratitude.
The previous evening, President Sarkozy awarded the L├ęgion d’Honneur, France’s highest honor, to seven World War II veterans.





Dan Oliver, CEO of W Ketchup, commented: “At the age of 19, the Marquis de Lafayette left France to volunteer his service in the American Revolution, and became a life long friend of George Washington. Last week America witnessed a French president, walking in the spirit of Lafayette, who understands freedom, acknowledges America’s sacrifices, and appreciates American exceptionalism.”

On the eve of Sarkozy’s visit, CBS broadcast a “60 Minutes” interview between Sarkozy and Lesly Stahl. When Stahl asked about his ex-wife, Sarkozy replied, “If I had something to say about Cecilia I would certainly not say it here,” took off his microphone, and left the interview. When asked why his press secretary had arranged the interview, Sarkozy responded: “He is stupid.”

W Ketchup’s Chairman Bill Zachary reacted: “The liberal media has made a habit of lionizing America’s enemies, and degrading America’s friends, turning the fourth estate into a fifth column. We wish more American politicians showed Sarkozy’s dignity by refusing to submit to the humiliations and abuses of privacy of the media.”

In his speech to the US Congress, Sarkozy also said:

America’s strength is not only a material strength, it is first and foremost a spiritual and moral strength. . . . Fundamentally, what are those who love America asking of her, if not to remain forever true to her founding values?
W Ketchup is dedicated to supporting America’s founding values and the men and women of the armed forces who protect them from foreign tyrants, especially on this Veteran’s Day.

President Sarkozy returned to France to find his country paralyzed by striking trade unions and protesting university students who want less work and more entitlements. W Ketchup wishes Sarkozy Godspeed in his effort to cure France of its eurosclerosis.


W Ketchup donates a portion of every purchase to the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund, which helps fund college tuition for the children of America’s fallen heroes.

We have noticed that the ketchup we buy isn't as good tasting as it used to be...maybe this W ketchup would taste better!

Excellent article, Pam. Thank you! I knew Sarkozy is a conservative but this article is something you won't see in the mainstream press. I heard an snippet about the Stahl interview and gained even more respect for the French President.

...off to check out W Ketchup. :o)

Excellent post Pam! This is the first I have heard of this company. Do you only order their product on line or do stores carry it? I'm thrilled to hear such things of the new French President.

I just saw your title on my feed reader and laughed and laughed. Who knew that there WAS such a thing as "W Ketchup"? I thought maybe it was a rap band!

Now we just need some Huckabee Hamshanks.

Pam, I have been hearing some good things about the new French President and it really made me happy. It seems people over the world find it so easy to forget what America has done to help most all of the other nations if not all. Maybe they will recover their memories. connie from Texas
