Proof of Insanity
Manny Prays for Our Future
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, December 15, 2014. Our dear friend, Mantis Manny, is with me at the breakfast table. He has asked me to invite all of you to a delicious feast of homemade muffins of every flavor and size. I will be adding Irish Coffees to increase the fun. Manny has witnessed so many bizarre and inane things of late that he is concerned we may have lost our collective minds.
And the Vice President Speaks..
Thank you all for joining me this morning. Let's jump right in and meet the crazies. Vice President Joe Biden gave a pep-talk to a group of young women at the White House during a technology event that included boys and girls. The esteemed Vice President told an all girl group seated at one table that they should understand that they were as smart as any boy in the world. Where that unsolicited and out of date bit of advice came from will remain one of life's great mysteries. Hopefully, the girls just ignored his insulting remarks and moved on. That's what I do when he speaks.
Traumatized Law Students Catch a Break
Did you know that Columbia Law students were granted a final exam postponement because they said they were traumatized by recent grand jury decisions that did not indict white police officers? Perhaps they should receive counseling, lollipops and an exit right out of law school. Are we to believe that in the future if they lose a case they will be entitled to disability payments?
The President Gets it Wrong!
Sorry, President Obama but you would be best advised to read the Bible a bit more thoroughly before you start quoting verses. In an effort to promote your executive action on immigration policy in a speech in Nashville, Tennessee you said that the Bible says not to throw stones in glass houses. Sorry, Mr. President, but the reference doesn't exist.
An Invocation to Satan and Allah
At the beginning of a Lake Worth, Florida City Commission meeting in early December, anti-theist Preston Smith gave an inane invocation that included Satan, Allah, Buddha, Zeus and yes, Jesus. At the end of his invocation he thanked atheists, agnostics and humanists for being logical. Who invited this guy anyway?
Planned Parenthood in the Schools
Sex education has gone way over the top in California. A class at Acalanes High School of Lafayette is being taught by employees of Planned Parenthood and the curriculum is a real eye opener. Part of the lesson asks students to answer a check list to see if they are ready for sex. I don't think the student's parents were ready for the questions. Then to add insult to injury is the introduction of the "genderbread" person asking students to refer to the faux cookie and identify themselves as "agender", "bigender", "two spirit", "third gender" and last but surely not least Gender queer." All I can say is WHAT!!!
Money, Money, Money
Eight EPA workers were paid more than $1 million while on paid administrative leave. The employees were on leave for a minimum of four months to a maximum of four years. Now that's what I call a good deal if you are not a taxpayer or a victim of the EPA's overreach.
Speaking of money, did you know that the Department of Injustice has forced the town of Bridgewater, New Jersey to pay Muslims a whopping $7.75 million dollars because the town rejected the building of a mosque because of an ordinance that limits houses of worship to major roads. The ordinance was enacted in an attempt to preserve the residential character of the different neighborhoods. Sounds reasonable to me, but not to Attorney General Eric Holder. The federal government runs the show now, make no mistake about it. Towns and states are just for show now that the government has grown big, intrusive and ugly.
Did you know that thousands of prisoners are filing phony tax refund claims and getting paid! . A report was released by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration that in 2012 more than 137,000 fake tax returns were filed amounting to an astounding $1 billion. Some of the phony claims were caught, but the ever vigilant IRS paid out $70 million in refunds. I guess the IRS has a soft spot for inmates as opposed to Conservatives who they deplore.
Caught on Tape
Let's end this foray into madness with Opelousas, Louisiana Mayor Don Cravins Sr. Mr. Cravens has been captured on video telling a crowd that if they voted early, they should go right back and vote again. He says that one more time's not going to hurt anyone. I would be remiss if I didn't point out that Mayor Cravins is a Democrat!
The moment I wake up
Before I stretch my wings
I say a little prayer for you
Maybe I should say a big one!

The Trump presidency has begun, and it is time to embrace this new beginning. For those of you out there who are infantile, mean spirited and devoid of common sense I say, "behave."
Fake News is sweeping the nation. Why not call it what it is, despicable reporting aimed at twisting minds and damaging reputations.
The insanity that is so prevalent these days is harming our nation. Peaceful protest is one thing, mud slinging, violence and betrayal is quite another.
