I'm Not Writing Today

The Gang's All Here!

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Wednesday, December 23, 2015. I just don't feel like talking about politics and social issues this morning. In fact, I may not write at all. We are post Hanukkah and pre-Christmas and it is time to kick back and appreciate the good things in life. Politics is clearly not one of them. Please join me, Buzzy, Manny, Antoine, Chiquita, Tevya, Harlotte, Belle and Lady Bug for a delicious meal and good conversation. Banana Split Waffles are on the menu today. They will be served with plenty of Jamaican coffees. We hope to see you soon.

Let's Party Hardy!

Thanks so much for joining us this morning. I am not discussing politics this morning. If I were, however, I would have to point out that we haven't heard a word from our vacationing president about the deadliest attack on US troops in Afghanistan in three years Josh Earnest said a few words, but not a peep was heard from the golf course. Perhaps President Obama is embarrassed to speak up, because just a day before the attack, his administration stated that the Taliban was an important partner for peace. I would point all this out, but today is all about fun and games. It certainly isn't a time to tell you about students in a Virginia school district who were required to practice their calligraphy by writing the , " There is no god but Allah. Muhammad is the messenger of Allah." Just to add insult to injury, the female students were invited to wear Muslim clothing. I'd tell you about this, but I am not in the mood to write about politics or social issues today.

Making Americans Behave

During this holiday season of good will towards man, the White House is hard at work with their number two priority. The first, is climate change. The second is seeking ways to curb anti-Muslim sentiment. I would discuss this today, but I just don't feel like writing about it. If I did I would have to tell you about meetings being held at the White House to discuss how to tamp down anti-Muslim feelings in America. Of course, the meetings were a result of the "hateful, divisive" comments made by a few Republicans running for president. Of course, it was Josh Earnest who pointed this out to reporters. Valerie Jarrett is on top of the whole initiative, so don't lose a moments sleep over the issue. She is steering the ship, just like always. I'd tell you more about Jarrett and her ship, but I just can't bring myself to write about it.

Cymbals Will be Clanging

The day that presidential candidate Clinton tells the truth will be a day of celebration throughout the land. The day that American voters who still support her wake up and smell the roses, will be another day to be remembered. For now, let's not talk about such a distasteful subject. This is the time for quiet reflection and love. I just can't make myself address this issue in writing right now. If I did, I would feel compelled to tell you that an intelligence committee review of Clinton's server re-affirmed that there were top secret e-mails on her unsecured personal device. The matter is no longer up for dispute. The e-mails were there and that's that. I hate statistics, but now I hate them more. I just can't interpret the info. It seems that 35 percent of voters don't trust Clinton, but they would elect her anyway. I think what I just said is right, but maybe not. The bottom line is that Clinton supporters are suffering from some sort of brain and moral disorder. In the spirit of the season, I suppose we should pray for their recovery. Now is not the time to talk about Clinton and her entourage, so I won't. I hope you understand.

Wishing You Peace

I am so happy I refrained from discussing politics and social issues. I know it was the right thing to do. My bugs and I wish all of you a blessed and peaceful holiday and a Happy New Year. I'm taking a brief vacation from Hubpages to re-group and re-fuel my jets. I realize now that it is okay if I just don't feel like talking about the state of the nation and the world. President Obama is away playing golf. He is so relaxed that he appears to have forgotten he's president. I intend to do the same in the coming weeks!

I'm so glad you gave the political discussions a rest BP. The 5 second rest (measured by my relaxed reading speed) was welcome, granted a little long but then it is Christmas. I will also refrain but if I were to discuss politics I would say....whoops, gotta go, Santa's at the door with my new Obama phone and it wasn't even on my Christmas list...what a great country. Merry Christmas! HO, HO, hummmmm.

Dear tsadjatko,

Maybe when we discuss politics again, Hillary will be history, Obama will be back on the streets and life will be peaceful. I can dream, can't I? See you at the Inn and have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Good Morning Patti and the bugs. My Christmas present to myself this year is a few days of no news watching or political reading. I am having a few withdrawal symptoms, but over all I am enjoying the mental peace that comes from not knowing all the terrible things going on in the world.

But I promise that after the holidays I will be back to it for fear of turning into a liberal or a low information voter.

A very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, yours, and all the bugs.

Mike, it's Christmas so you should be watching or reading about religion. You can start with Islam,

Did you know What Archaeology Says about Allah?

"Muslims claim that in pre-Islamic times, "Allah" was the biblical God of the Patriarchs, prophets and apostles. Indeed, the credibility of Islam as a religion stands or falls on its core claim of historical continuity with Judaism and Christianity. No wonder, then, that many Muslims get uppity when the claims of Islam are subjected to the hard science of archaeology. Because archaeology provides irrefutable evidence that Allah, far from being the biblical God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, was actually the pre-Islamic pagan moon-god. Indeed, it is an established archaeological fact that worship of the moon-god was the main religion of the ancient Middle East." Check it out,

Good morning Pop,

I agree with you. It's the season for celebration and not to talk petty politics. If we were talking politics I would like to know Obama's trick for forgetting that he is president. Next year would be much more bearable if I could do the same.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Good Morning, Mike,

I guess it will be like we are vacationing together! Enjoy the peace. No worries that you will ever be a low information anything. You are so damn smart! I'll be cooking again in mid- January. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

lol Tom. Well count all 57 states, pronounce corpsmen as corpse-man,salute with a latte in your hand ( "latte-gate"), be foiled by locked double-doors and take a snapshot of yourself with several other politicians during Nelson Mandela's funeral and you will be halfway to knowing Obama's trick for forgetting he is president. To get all the way there throw away his teleprompter.

I blinked and your retirement from political discussion returned. The issues are serious, but I laughed out loud at your presentation. Here's hoping Obama gets a lump of coal and you a real vacation. Merry Christmas Pop, and let's pray for good new year around the world.

Merry Xmas breakfast pop. I'm glad you were able to refrain from discussing politics and social issues over this festive season. I feel compelled to write an entire hub about the Government of my country and their total mismanagement of Australia...but I don't really want to..not at the moment...so I will take a tip from you and leave that on the back burner for now. Cheers.

Pop & Crew of Bugs.....I'm grateful you chose not to write in the usual manner about our state of affairs, campaigns, politics and all that other "stuff" you serve so WELL with breakfast. Really glad you did not mention Hil the pill because I don't want to feel compelled to ruin the peace & joy by considering her repetitive criminal shenanigans, hard core deception and boat load of lies that just keep on - a- comin....over the mountain & through the woods ....to......ah, wait a minute. That witch ain't comin to THIS grandmother's house! Guarantee it!

Wishing you a wonderful Holiday period of rest & refreshment.....See you when we reconvene. While we're off, the INN need an addition!. We're getting crowded.........Peace, Paula

Good Morning fp,

Thanks so much fro joining me in my reluctance to discuss anything remotely political. I am especially grateful that you didn't mention Hil the Pill because the mere sound of her name brings me nightmares. I shall miss you and I wish you joy and happiness. Till then....

As usual I am late to breakfast, but I was sleeping away politics too. Or was I sweeping away politics?

Did you notice the Christmas music that replaced one of the right wing radio commentators on Christmas Day? That took schmaltz or was he slunging someone named Hill? All this sleep has made me fuzzy.

Going back to bed, maybe til the New Year. It's just too cold. Too bad politics couldn't just be frozen, you know all the princesses.

Now ,if you don't want to talk about politics which, we don't, have you seen Star Wars? Now they know how to settle wars and really have wild politics.

Good Morning tirelessstraveler,

Let's forget politics for a bit. After all, the politicians have forgotten about us for a very long time. Happy New Year!
