Butter is at the Table
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, August 29, 2016. Our delightful friend, Butter, is at the breakfast table this morning. She has been keeping tabs on the new breed of college freshmen. They are a sensitive group. Please make every effort to avoid offending them. If you stress them it may cause them to phone home and complain to Mommy and Daddy. Please join Butter and me this morning to discuss this growing trend of indulging college students in every way possible to make sure they will not be able to function in the real wold. Butter is preparing a luscious sampling of buttermilk pancakes for all of us. I will supply the toppings and the beverages. We hope to see you soon.
It Hurts So Bad
Thank you all for joining this morning. I am delighted to report that John Ellison, Dean of Students for the College at the University of Chicago, has no intention of bowing to incoming students if they object to speakers or opinions from other students. It has become increasingly commonplace for college students to demand the establishment of "Safe Spaces" to protect them from speech they cannot bear to hear because it will harm them emotionally. Finally, someone is standing up to the children, and it is a welcome relief. Students on this campus will not be able to back into so-called "Safe Spaces" where they will be protected from ideas and speech that bothers them. All I can say is, it is about time. Students have been rushing to their deans and advisors to complain about traumas they ere forced to endure because they saw a "Trump for President" poster. Colleges have been supporting their moronic responses and commonsense has fallen by the wayside. If only the example set by UC catches on. When Pop went to college she was encouraged to write and speak without fear of reprisal or punishment. The liberals in today's world don't believe in free speech. They believe only in their speech. They support only their ideas and they condemn everything else. I commend the University Of Chicago's stand on this important issue. To those students who are uncomfortable immersing themselves in this type of environment, I say stay home in Mommy and Daddy's basement. They will probably take care of you for as long as they live.
The Liberals Explode in Anger
Needless to say there were many people who exploded in anger when they learned of UC's stand on babies going to college. They railed about the schools's lack of compassion or interest in catering to the interests of certain sensitive groups. Boo-hoo, boo-hoo. Students cried out about their right to shout down or oust speakers they did not approve of. I can only suppose that this overdue turn of events has knocked these college babies out of their highchairs. How dare the schools expect them to act like grown-ups? How dare the school expect them to honor the rights of all people to speak freely. Boo-hoo, boo- hoo.
A Barbed Wire World
It is time for Americans to decide what kind of nation they want to live in. Right now we are headed in the wrong direction. College students with the backing and encouragement of other uber liberals want to shut down free speech. If that sounds attractive to anyone, I say move to a country that believes in silencing its citizens. If listening to different points of view fills you with angst, I say visit a health professional and work on dealing in the real world. Put off school for awhile and get your head on straight. If voting for a consummate liar sounds appealing, I suggest you look in the mirror and decide what kind of person you really are. If liars are your cup of tea, move to a totalitarian state and surrender your right to voice your opinion to the latest demagogue. If your vote affects others who value their freedom and who demand honesty, don't vote.
Save America or Bury It
Clearly, this is the most important election in our history. A vote for Hillary is affirmation that lying is okay. A vote for Hillary is affirmation that contempt for the law is just fine. A vote for Hillary will seal the deal for all of us. Our nation is on the edge of ruin, and without a doubt crooked Hillary will take us beyond that edge. We need to toughen up. We need to toughen up our expectations. We need to demand excellence. We need to tell students to toughen up, stop crying and realize that our nation is on the eve of destruction. It is impossible for me to believe that the many freedoms we have known are no longer needed or desired. I hope I am proven wrong. Let's throw the pacifiers and diapers away and grow up.
This land is your land
This land is my land
Come fly with me
And keep it free....

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.
