A Clouded Tomorrow
Manny Prepares Breakfast
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Saturday, October 14, 2017. Our pious friend, Manny, is at the stove as I write this. Manny is preparing Carrot Cake Breakfast Bread for our enjoyment this morning. I will be mixing up a batch of Irish coffees to complete the meal. Manny has expressed concern about the future of our nation. He has asked me to extend an invitation to all the Poppers this morning to enjoy the cake and eat it too! This may be the only time we can actually do that. We hope to see you soon.
Taking a Good Look
Facing the Facts
Thanks so much for joining me this morning. Given all the trouble on college campuses today, it seems important to understand how the kids of today may turn out to be the trouble we face tomorrow. Protest on campus is nothing new. We saw it before and we will surely see it again, but this time around the protest is aimed at the heart and soul of America. When college campuses pose dangers to students who see themselves as Conservative, we had better wake up and smell the coffee. Students at Berkely fear for their safety. A simple walk around the campus poses dangers once thought to be unthinkable. The sight of students attacking other kids with differing points of view is chilling. They are not using their words, they are using their fists, and that cannot be tolerated. Professors encouraging the violence cannot be tolerated, either. I thought we were a nation of laws. If we are, it is time to start enforcing them.
The Insanity Starts Young
Like it or not, sports figures are still seen as role models. The role they are projecting leaves a lot to be desired, but the kids we are raising are noticing. When first graders start taking a knee during the Pledge, it is time to worry. They are not expressing an informed viewpoint. They are imitating their heroes, and that is very troubling. Even worse is the fact that their parents ar defending their right to be disrespectful, and disobey the rules. If it's okay to disobey the teacher and kneel, is it also okay to walk out of school every time something comes up that a student doesn't like? Is this freedom or is it a breakdown of the rule of law? I think it's the latter, and we had better pay attention.
A Georgia high school teacher compared the "Make America Great Again" slogan to a swastika. She ordered the students wearing t-shirts with the slogan to leave the classroom. The incident occurred at River Ridge High School north of Atlanta, Georgia. When students who express a love of country are banished from the classroom, it is time to worry.
Sanctuary for Who?
It appears that breaking the law is okay now. In fact, it is almost in vogue. Producer Harvey Weinstein is accused of raping women and Hollywood barely says a word. Late night talk show host who used to be a comedian, Jimmy Kimmel, suddenly doesn't want to weigh in on the subject. He prefers to target the president. The Weinstein horror show is clear cut and awful, but the hypocrites in Hollywood are suddenly mute. I can only suppose that rape is not a crime in their book, but rather the cost of doing business. Shame on all of them. Movie stars are often seen as heroes in our nation right along with sports figures. I pity the children, and I worry about the future of our nation.
Many states have now declared themselves to be sanctuaries for illegal immigrants. The Justice Department issued a final warning to five jurisdictions that are protecting illegals. These states and cities within other states are spitting on the law of the land. They refuse to comply with requests for background checks on illegal immigrants who are involved in crime. They harbor criminals and put law abiding citizens at risk. When did going "rogue" become okay? If they fail to comply with federal law by Oct. 27, they will lose millions of dollars in federal grants, grants that help every citizen. The rule of law is breaking down, and it does not bode well for the future of America.
A Bowl of Trouble
Many factors are coming together that paint a picture of a country that is splitting apart. The root of this escalation lies with the Obama administration. President Obama and Eric Holder looked the other way when it came to violence against whites, or black on black violence. They sought to divide our nation and they succeeded. The media has continued the push for the great divide and they are succeeding as well. The news is slanted, false and infuriating. The public is being brainwashed. Our children are at the mercy of teachers who impose their un-American views in the classrooms. Our college age students must bend to the will of the left wing majority on campus or face violence. Our rights as citizens have been smothered by local governments that have decided to ignore the law. The rule of law is under siege, and it is vital that we pay attention and work to put an end to the madness.
Our vote is our voice, our choice of television viewership is our voice, our support of Hollywood is our voice, as is our attendance at sporting events. The only thing most people understand in this country is money, so let's deprive those who would deprive us of our voice, our safety and our future of the one thing they value. It's a good beginning.
The moment I wake up
I say a little prayer for you...
