Not Your Father's Liberal!
Buzzy Has Flown Home
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Wednesday, August 27, 2014. Our traveling friend, Fly Buzzy, has come home to us. He has been all around the nation and I can tell you from first hand experience that he is not a happy bug. Buzzy has asked for the pleasure of your company this morning. He wants to discuss the new "liberal" and the threat such liberalism poses to our nation. Won't you join us? Buzzy and I will be serving Breakfast Pizzas and Bloody Marys. We hope to see you soon.
The Empty Speech Bubble
Thank you all for coming here this morning. I don't know how it happened, but today's liberals aren't very liberal at all. Back in Breakfastpop's day, being a liberal meant you stood up for free speech, free markets, free trade, equal rights for all people and the right to practice your religion. Liberalism also came to embody the notion that government should provide assistance to citizens in need. We've come a long way, baby, but it's not for the better. Government today has grown out of control. Government today is intrusive and repressive. Today's "liberals" only believe in freedom for certain people, in very distinct ways. Once upon a time, liberals believed in free speech. Now free speech means the freedom to speak about politically correct subjects in prescribed ways. Freedom isn't really free anymore.
Be Careful What You Say
Your government wants you to tow the line and behave yourself. Your government doesn't have any patience for citizens who want to exercise their right to protest. When Tea Party members held a rally near the White House, your President Obama didn't seem to notice a single person. The press noticed and they fulfilled their obligation to this administration by slandering the Tea Party. Liberals believe in free speech, but you had better be careful what you say, lest you fall victim to vicious name-calling and false characterizations.
Lady Liberty is Weeping
Immigrants legally entering the United States, came here to be free. Some of them may want to reconsider their decision right about now. The liberals of today want to change the First Amendment to restrict political speech. The liberals of today want to punish people who try to exercise their religious beliefs. The liberals of today support the unions who push people around and force employees to cave into union demands. The liberals of today will resort to any tactic to get their viewpoints across. Today's liberals look more like bullies than the liberals this bug remembers. This is a very sad time for America. You used to be known as the land of the free and the home of the brave. It may be time to change this motto.
The King's Residence
Today's liberal seems at peace with most of the scandals coming out of Washington. Using the IRS to silence and punish conservatives and Tea party groups doesn't clash with their twisted sense of right and wrong. The end always justifies the means and no one embodies that belief more than the current occupant of the White House. Your president Obama doesn't have the will, patience or desire to follow the rule of law. That is just fine with liberals. Your president Obama has no use for Congress and that's just fine with liberal Democrats residing in this once august body. Your President Obama has ruled by executive fiat and nary a Liberal Democrat in Washington has a problem with it. The liberals of yesteryear still maintained respect for the Constitution. Today's liberals believe it is an out-dated piece of American history and nothing more.Your country is suffering because of this attitude and until someone resides in the White House who remembers what America once stood for, nothing will change.
Freedom is everything. It is up to every freedom loving American to take back America and restore it to the country it used to be. You don't want a dictator in the White House. You want a preident. You don't want intractable, ignorant fools in Congress. You want and need intelligent representatives who recognize that they work for the people and not for themselves. You don't want a president who breaks the law and takes the law into his own hands. You don't want a president who has no discernible or consistent foreign policy and who demeans America in the face of the world. You don't want a president who puts all of you in danger with open borders and tepid responses to terrorism. President Obama is the perfect example of the modern liberal and that, my dear human friends, is nothing to be proud of.
Get to the polls and vote wisely. Your future can be better than your present. Make it happen...Buzzy
Fly me to the moon
And let me live where I am free
Things are so ugly now
I think we're up a tree!

he two political parties couldn't be farther apart these days. It is almost impossible to discuss politics with a Hillary supporter, but I tried.
The traditional moment of silence on September 11, was moved up by a few minutes. Why that happened speaks volumes about President Obama.
This weekend was a nightmare in our country. We had to endure acts of terror in New York, New Jersey and Minnesota. Our so-called leaders were afraid to call a spade a spade.
