And Now Our Safety Is On The Line

We Are At War

Good Morning Breakfastpoppers. Today is Tuesday, February 25, 2014. Our friend, Harlotte the Spider, is here with me this morning. We are both very upset with the latest blow the Obama Administration has heaped upon us. Please join us this morning for breakfast and an update about the latest outrge. We are having bacon and eggs and a strong Bloody Mary, and rest assured,we have more than enough for everyone.

Welcome, my human family. Although I am merely a spider, I am a historian in my own way. I weave my web in such a way that it tells a story about this great nation of yours. My insect heart weeps for you and your loved ones. You have already endured so much under President Obama. He has destroyed your precious health care and put you all at risk. He has silenced dissent by using the I.R.S. to threaten those who dare to criticize him. He has bowed to your enemies and emboldened them with whispered promises of his willingness to bend to their wishes. He has destroyed your economy with time tested policies that have always failed. Unemployment is hideously high, in fact, much higher than stated. You have endured scandal after scandal with dire consequences for all of you and none for the perpetrators. Your government is expanding its powers in unimaginable ways rather reminiscent of the former Soviet Union. The saddest part of all is that too many of your citizens are sleeping through it all. If they continue to sleep your nation will be changed forever. This is exactly what President Obama is aiming for. He came here to change you once and for all and to put your nation in its proper place, last and least important in the eyes of the world.

The Assault

And Now For The Military

If your goal is to bring a nation to its knees, it is absolutely essential to weaken its military. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has presented your nation with a five year Pentagon budget that would shrink your Armed Force, bringing its members and capability back to pre- Sept.11th numbers. There is not a doubt in the minds of most sane people that these cuts would severely cut your military readiness. These are very dangerous times. Your world is more dangerous than ever and contrary to your President's assertion that al Qaeda is on the run, rest assured they are running your way. Clearly your President Obama is not a student of history. If he were, he would realize that shrinking your military capability is a very dangerous move. The Defense Department will also seek to reduce the growth of tax-free housing allowances for military families. Along with these cuts will be the reduction of annual subsidies to military commissaries and to military health insurance programs. Military retirees and some active duty personnel will be asked to pay more in terms of deductibles and co-pays. All of these cuts will take place along side base closings in the United States and overseas.

These cuts will also drastically reduce the number of young men and women willing to enter the military to serve their country. It is difficult to entertain the notion of serving a nation that doesn't serve or honor its members. These cuts are really not about saving money. They are about a concerted effort to weaken us from within. If money were the only issue there is plenty of wasted money around to double the size of your armed Forces. The federal government is spending $146,944 of your tax money to research sending automated text messages to people with depression in an effort to remind them to take their medicine and monitor their mood and thoughts. How about all those dead people who were paid $31 million in Social Security benefits? Your military will suffer, but the Palestinian Authority gets $148 million from your nation. Grants were given to convicted terrorists, as well. Your nation released $8 billion in frozen assets to Iran in November of 2013. Shall I go on? Do I really have to?


Military Cuts

How do you feel about the proposed cuts to the Armed Forces?

Oh, what a tangled web we weave

When first we practice to deceive

Oh, what a tangled web we weave

Being a firm beleiver in the "Peace through Strength" motto..........this screams "Trouble through Weakness". And THAT is exactly what we are headed for.

You are right, it has absolutly NOTHING to do with saving money. The liberal left has made it quite clear saving money is not a prioriety, but has made it quite obvious, the Constitution means NADDA! The first and foremost reason FOR our Constitution is keeping Americans SAFE.

This may be his biggest mistake yet, and he has made plenty. This one could cost lives and our national integrity.


taxlarry 2 years ago

Harlotte, you are absolutely on point. Mainaining our military is stated in the Constitution. Not much else this administration has done is enumerated in that document. So, they will screw up anything and everything. By the way, Harlotte, do you "surf the web?" Couldn't resist.

Individually these actions by this administration appear to be "mistakes" or the result of very poor judgments. But if you add all these mistakes together, each "mistake" looks more and more like parts of a well orchestrated plan.

The best way to destroy most anything is to attack the foundation and the rest will crumble on its own. How did so many America Haters get elected to positions of power? I guess only the voters can answer that question.

When I heard Chuck Hagel's announcement, I got sick to my stomach. Just the thought of all of the soldiers who died, were injured, and endured pure hell to protect this great country of ours, and now this! You're so right on when you say that this is part of Obama's grand scheme. I hope to God that we can last another couple of years until the administration changes and some of his wrongs are righted. Please ask the bartender to make my bloody Mary very strong! Save me a seat near you!

Good Morning CMerritt,

If you want to weaken and ultimately destroy a nation, take over health care and then go after the military. If there is anyone left on the planet , and there are many, who don't see this President for what he is they must be brain dead. See you at the Inn and we'll talk some more.

Dear taxlarry,

I do a bit of surfing so I can "snag" some useful info. As for this web of lies this administration has created, even I can't see a way out of it! See you at the Inn.

I think you and Poolman are right.........this is NO mistake. It is just more wrecklessness idology. I hope and pray that the vast majority of people are beginning to wake up. This is like a bad, bad dream.

Good Morning Mike,

I believe this is part of a well orchestrated plan. Obama came into power with a deep seated hatred of all our nation stands for. He was mentored by the best when it comes to disliking our belief system. Let's be honest, fools elected him. There is no other explanation. Another is, apparently, we have more communists and socialists in this country than we realized. See you at the Inn.

Good Morning AnitaFrancine,

It is impossible to stay sane when each passing day deals yet another blow to our very foundation. Obama and those that stand with him must have an unimaginable hatred for our nation. I'll see you at the Inn and that Bloody Mary will be very strong.

Dear CMerritt,

Our only chance is a great wake-up call. Clearly, those people who lost their insurance have been rudely awakened. Our soldiers clearly are awake, people like you e are awake, but in order to stop this we have to get the whole country up to speed on what is really happening.

Dear carol,

Might I suggest that given the circumstances you should opt for something stronger? See you later.

Harlotte and Pop,

This latest fiasco would leave us with a smaller military that Russia, China, and North Korea. Cheer up Americans, we can still crush any invasion mounted by Myanmar.

As always I applaud you for taking a stand and feeling strongly enough about a subject that you take action and write about it. I am a big believer in raising awareness in an intelligent and logical way, and you do that well.

And now the Military...Why Oh why Mr President...I'm not feeling as Safe today, as I did before you took this position...Not a Smart decision.

Good Hub, Breakfastpops...Gets people to realize, maybe too late, what is happening in the land of Washington...Where is the home of the Brave?

Good Morning b.Malin,

It seems as if it is the "brave" that are now under attack. Our freedom has been under attack ever since Obama moved into the WH! See you at the Inn. Drinks are on me and they will be strong!

It's simple...the military does not vote for Democrats, but the dependent class does, so the Democrats like to cut funds to the military in order to buy votes with more entitlement spending.

As Bill Clinton once said, "I loathe the military." So do most of the other Democrats, and RINO's like Hagel.

POP: Chuck Hagel is a republican, and there was no mistake when he was appointed by Obama. Now Obama can say that even a republican wants to decrease the number in the military, so others cannot complain.

As for me, I am a strong believer in a strong military. That is why we were feared (not so much anymore). They are willing to give their lives for our country, and our country is willing to decrease their benefits in return. Sounds a little lopsided to me. I am off to the bar now, Harlotte is saving me a seat.....

If they keep up the "take away" programs from our Military, we will need to re-institute the draft to keep the bare minimum numbers of active duty Military. I beat the draft by voluntarily joining the Army when they were getting close to my draft number.

Those who claim to hate the Military might feel differently when they are walking around with a draft card in their wallet.

Rosetta Stone sales of their Mandarin Chinese language program have gone through the roof in the last 24 hours. Chuck Hagel, John Kerry and Barrack Obama are going to get big bonuses at quarter's end for their top sales program.

Dear WillStarr,

The Obama Administration is working overtime to populate our nation with Dem voters. The more illegal aliens the better and the more people willing to remain unemployed is a gift. Is this the fall of the America?

See you at the Inn.

Dear Kris,

Hagel is a tool. As for Obama, he is on track to bring us to our knees. His father must be so proud. See you at the Inn. Harlotte wants to order some custom bracelets from you.

Dear Mike,

As usual you make a very valid and super strong point. I am already at the Inn awaiting your arrival.


breakfastpop profile image

breakfastpop 2 years ago Author

Dear retief200,

I see your point. I suppose Rosetta Stone sales should also pick up for Russian and Farsi.


retief2000 2 years ago

That is the Axis of Sales.

I am of two minds on this. On the one hand, I want our soldiers to come home. On the other hand, I don't want our absence to leave another vacuum that will support conditions for Al Qaeda/Taliban to triumph. It seems, as always, that President Pothead is going about this situation in a half-assed way. If he wants to bring the military home and reduce it to 2001 levels, fine, but what is he putting in place to prevent another 9/11 situation? We haven't heard anything about that.


breakfastpop profile image

Dear Cassie,

In my view bringing our soldiers home has little to so with drastically cutting our defenses. Obama is just trying to weaken us further in the eyes of the world. We need to be ready and prepared because our world has grown extremely dangerous. See you at the Inn.


retief2000 2 years ago

BP, in Obama's America, the profit from sales is evil. The whole axis thing works.

I am sick about it... See you at the Inn. I may have to drown my sorrows!

Although I hate to hear of our young people having to enter military service, the idea of not having a military strength is concerning. You are so right, it leaves us open to attack.


breakfastpop profile image

breakfastpop 2 years ago Author

Dear teaches,

We have a volunteer military. Young men and women enter into the service for a few years and some look forward to service as a career. This administration has broken so many promises to our military that serving our nation may not seem like a good idea. Should the need arise we may have to bring back the draft and that would be tragedy. See you at the Inn.


retief2000 2 years ago

I am profoundly proud of all the fine young men and women I have known who have served our country in its military and am deeply offended when any one talks as if it is less than noble and honorable to do so.


breakfastpop profile image

breakfastpop 2 years ago Author

Dear retief,

Shame on this administration and anyone else who thinks its fine to short change our brave men and women and their families. We, as a nation, owe them so much. See you at the Inn and we'll have a toast in their honor.


retief2000 2 years ago

I toast my son, the Navy officer, every time I pour a beer. I would rather surround myself with military vets than with the hipsters and metrosexuals our young men have become.

I will toast to him as well.....
