A Message from the Chairman
The Waffle House – there’s just something about those yellow signs. Their comfort food 24/7 with their staff who are pros at dispensing southern charm to customers sweeter than the sticky syrup bottles on your table draw us in their doors. You know the lingo: scattered, smothered, covered, chunked and over easy! However, for me, it’s the ordering process that holds my attention. 

How in the world does the staff yell out orders, the cooks hear it all while then delivering exactly what you ordered so quickly? What kind of super powers do they hold? 

I had no idea, until recently, that there is a system other than yelling out orders to people who have echoic memories. The company uses “visual cues” with their condiments and utensils arranged on a plate to signal the cook what the order is. According to Southern Magazine, “A jelly packet at the bottom of the plate signifies scrambled eggs. Raisin toast is signified by a packet of apple butter. A mustard packet facing up means a pork chop. Even a pat of butter is used as intel for kitchen staff: It represents a T-bone, and its placement on the plate tells the cook how well-done the customer wants their steak.”
The Waffle House "Cheat Sheet"
That makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it? Through all of the noise, hustle and bustle behind the counters of what seems like organized chaos, the signals are firm and clear. 

America has also been very loud since 2016. Donald Trump won in an electoral landslide which has caused a three year long hissy fit by the Democrats. Their fury is signaling a surreal time in our nation – anger has swept them away from putting America first so they can destroy our president at any costs. It’s shameful. 

On the flip side, Americans are signaling back to liberals, the squads and the mobs fueled by anger. We are living in the best economic times of our nation smashing all records. Salaries and wages are up, consumer confidence is high, the stock market is soaring, the border wall is being built, conservative judicial appointees are being seated at a record pace, other countries are now pulling their financial weight on the world stage, our military is being strengthened, ISIS has been decimated- all in just over three years. 

The “deplorables”, the “dregs of society” and the “despicables”, as Trump supporters have been called by the 'left', signal right back – we are focused, determined and will continue to make America great. We will not back down from their noise or anger. 

On November 3, we plan to re-elect our president and beat Doug Jones. The signals Alabama will send will be loud and clear that will need no cues- we expect conservative policy and support for our state and nation. 

The Waffle House cues are an amazing feat of success in their business plan- so are America’s signals in what is best for our nation. If we keep ordering conservative principles through our election process, our nation will continue to prosper. So, get ready to smother, scatter and cover all of the liberal noise and actions with our votes by ordering up another four year term of KAG and ending Doug Jones’ tiny tenure for Alabama. 

Though I’m a bit disappointed that the cooks don’t have super powers working their magic, we know that America can unleash our strength at the ballot box. That’s an order we all look forward to in 2020. 

Mrs. Terry Lathan
Chairman, Alabama Republican Party
Thank-You to Alabama's Republican Members of the U.S. House of Representatives
While the U.S. House Democrats ran a one sided impeachment sham, we'd like to thank all of Alabama's Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives for staying strong throughout this entire process and voting NO. From the stand-off in the SCIF to the Judiciary Committee proceedings, our ALGOP U.S. Representatives did the right thing looking at a shallow and weak case for impeaching President Trump.
