Bedbugs and Politics

Updated on December 19, 2017

Brown Prepares Breakfast

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Tuesday, December 19, 2017. Our new friend, Beetle Brown, is at the stove this morning preparing Caramel Apple French Toast for our enjoyment. Brown and his buddies have been on vacation for the last two weeks seeking peace and solitude from the continuing storm in the nation. He managed to block out much of the noise from Washington, but now that he and his friends are back, the noise is louder than ever. Brown has asked for the pleasure of your company this morning. His psychiatrist advised him to gather some friends around him and vent. It would be wonderful if you could support Brown. I'll prepare some strong Irish coffees for all of us to ease the pain of witnessing Brown's angst. We hope to see you soon.


Call the U.N.

Thanks so much for joining me this morning. I barely returned from vacation, and I learned that a Democrat from Cook County, commissioner Richard Boykin, had suggested that the corrupt United Nations send forces to help keep the peace in Chicago. We all know that Chicago, under the horrible leadership of Rahm Emmanuel, is dubbed the murder capitol of America. The United Nations is filled with murderers, so the commissioner's idea makes sense if you are insane. I have met a few bedbugs in my time, but Boykin seems to be crazier that any of them.


The Mueller Piñata

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is continuing his probe into Russian collusion. When he whacks the piƱata, it isn't Trump who falls out, but rather the Clintons and and a host of other characters. Events are developing that seem to suggest that the Russian baloney was cooked up way before the president took office. The famous phony dossier was going to be used just in case Trump won. Well, surprise, surprise, he did win and the losers have been crying, colluding and obstructing ever since. The waters in the FBI are getting muddier and muddier. I would suggest that hip boots are in order, because the river is filled with liars. I don't know how things will shake out, but in a perfect world, those who concocted this mess should be held accountable. The real colluders should be rounded up and punished. Hillary Clinton belongs in this group and so does Obama, Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder and way too many people in the FBI to count. The swamp is way bigger than Trump thought, and he is going to need a bigger drain. In a perfect world, the deep state would be revealed and sent packing. I have always been told that justice works slowly, but now it seems it isn't working at all. All of these people are crazier than any bedbug I have ever known, and I have known quite a few.


I Have an Idea

In the midst of all this confusion, collusion and delusion, it would be wonderful for someone to step forward and tell the truth. Of course, those that opposed the election of Donald Trump also oppose the truth. They have become so accustomed to lying, that it is possible they could pass lie detector tests. Day after day we are subjected to the likes of Schumer and Pelosi declaring that tax reform is a disastrous boon for the rich. Their constituents are going to benefit from the reform, but this gruesome twosome wants them to believe otherwise. I wonder what their back-up plan will be when those who voted for them actually find themselves liking the reform. Contrary to the empty cries from Democrats, the middle class will benefit from the changes. The final bill could have been simpler and probably better, but it will go a long way to bring relief to a battered and complicated system. I have no doubt that plenty of Democrats and pundits know that the reform is being lied about, but their hatred of all things Trump, "trumps" everything, even the truth. If only noses did grow longer when people lied, Washington would be a city of colliding snouts, and that would be refreshing.


The Rant is Adjourned

I have to thank you for listening to me. Looking back, I really didn't rant all that much. Perhaps the effects of time off took the edge off things. In any case, I want to see the bad guys corralled and silenced. I'm tired of the liars, the left wing commentators, the 18 year old political pundits and the Clintons. Depite all the obstructionists, the Trump economic recovery is working. All the numbers have improved since he took office. Economic growth has topped 3 percent and is heading towards 4 percent. Tax reform will benefit millions of people. Regulations that handcuff business are disappearing and small business is feeling optimistic. Confidence is returning, the stock market is hitting new record highs and jobs are returning to America. President Trump is good for America, and most Americans know that. It is time for the "resistance" to shut down all the noise and start smelling the roses. Their rhetoric is getting old and collectively they are all crazier than any bedbug I have ever known.

Brown's Song

It's time for a dose of truth

Don't it turn my brown eyes blue...

      You had me laughing with your reference to Pinocchio. Yes, too many bedbugs to eliminate but still have hope that we can survive the pains.

      Good Morning Billy,

      You are smarter than the average bear or the best politician. Actually, you are much smarter than that. I hope you do benefit from the changes, I really do. Living in New Jersey, I may not see much of anything, but I am willing to approach things with a good attitude. The tax code stinks, so change is definitely needed. See you at the Inn. Merry Christmas, billy.

      Pop and BB,

      I sense that the worm may be starting to turn. The lies of the haters can't survive the facts on the ground as stocks and GDP continues to surge and unemployment continues to be only a bad memory.

      Also the lengths to which to corrupt Deep Staters were willing to go are being uncovered one by one. The truth will set us free.

      Well, Pop, I'm firmly entrenched in the middle class, so we shall see what shakes out of that tax tree. One thing I know for certain, no matter who is the President: if I'm relying on the government for my well-being I'm dumber than I appear to be.

      Merry Christmas my friend!
