  1. Mr. Schlapp, I viewed with interest your comments on Fox a night or two ago regarding company’s that have stated publicly that they back BLM. Being an ultra conservative and never pulled a lever for any dem in my lifetime, please have someone advise me where I may obtain a list of those firms so I can avoid any purchase of their product(s).

  2. Hello Mr. and Mrs. Matthew and Mercedes Schlapp,
    From reading the various comments about you–your integrity, your solid family life, your affiliations with religious schools–I am impressed you will probably help me. Below is a message I ask you to take to Donald Trump for me. I suggest that the “new” Republican party members pledge to keep the Ten Commandments in their lives. I suppose it’s preposterous that one old man and wife make such a huge suggestion to our party. But here it is: Be our spokesman and proponent:
    Mr. Donald J. Trump: Sorry I didn’t think of this in time to send this to you before the CPAC Conference. This is a little harder to do afterward, but let’s do it!

    To: “New” Republican Leaders and Citizens, Voters: Let us Live by the Ten Commandments as we go forward.
    To CPAC–Pledge to Live Ten Commandments, March 1, 2021
    My name is Darrel Wilhoit, Retired Chemical Engineer
    My wife is Lana Carpenter Wilhoit, Retired English Teacher
    We Believe in God; We believe God sent Donald Trump to Lead the USA
    We have a suggestion to make to the entire “New” Republican Party and especially to you Leaders who gathered at CPAC, February 25-28, 2021:
    That you leaders, and subsequently all citizens who also wish to join: Make a pledge going forward from the CPAC conference to Live Your Lives According to the Ten Commandments.
    No discussion is needed; these ten rules for living and relating to others were given by God and have worked for more than 3,000 years since then. We can set ourselves apart from those who are trying to find us out, hurt and destroy us by living according to HIS WORD. It will take faith for us to get on board with this commitment, but God will bless and help us with the endeavor before us if we will obey by HIS WORD.
    Thank you.
    Darrel and Lana Wilhoit
