Fairy Tale Sunday

Updated on February 26, 2017

Harlotte Spins Us Breakfast

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Sunday, February 26, 2017, and it's time for a fairy tale. Our creative friend, Spider Harlotte, is weaving us breakfast and a tale. The Kingdom is under siege. The crazies are lurking about trying to undermine our new leadership. Thankfully, our King has things under control, so we need not dismay. Harlotte wants to tell us all a story about the latest events in our land. She will be preparing luscious banana bread for our enjoyment. I will be serving a fine breakfast ale to add to the pleasure. Won't you join us this morning? Please gather by the Capitol Building and get caught up on life in the Kingdom of Trump.


Madness Abounds

Thank you all for joining us this morning. There is news to share. Sit down and partake of your bread and ale and let me entertain you with the latest happenings in our troubled, but beloved Kingdom. In case you missed the announcement from the province of California, be forewarned that a travel ban has been issued. Those of you residing in the province and attending public university will be prohibited from traveling to "anti-LBGT" states. The decree went into effect on the first of January. Unlucky students attending school at the University of California and California State University cannot avail themselves of state-funded money to pay for these forays into hostile territory, no matter how worthwhile the trip may be. The ban points to four specific states. You can forget about Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee. Students, your Kingdom just got smaller and you can thank the screwed up powers in your province. Students at UC Davis were planning on attending an undergraduate research conference in Tennessee. UC Davis was going to pay for the trip, but alas the law is the law and it shall prevail. Needless to say, many California students are just fine with the ban, because they consider the states mentioned to be backward. At times life in our beloved Kingdom is bizarre, and this is certainly one of those times.


Scary Business

Fellow citizens, the police in Northampton, Mass. learned a lesson when it comes to dealing with the super sensitive among us. A wonderful practice was initiated that declared that once a month officers would go to an elementary school at the beginning of the day and high-five the kids and wish them a great day. The kids liked it, but of course, concerns were raised by the adults. The anxiety surrounding the practice centered around children of color, undocumented children or any children who may have had a bad police encounter. Keep in mind that we are talking about the Kingdom's elementary schools. I never knew any kid in elementary school with a rap sheet, but then, I am just a bug. In any case, as you might expect the pilot program has gone bye-bye. The squeaky ones in the Kingdom always get the oil these days, and that my dear friends, is a shame. I have a strong feeling that our new King may shake things up a bit. Won't that be refreshing!


This One Ends Nicely

And now my dear fellow citizens comes news of a happening that actually worked out. The tale begins with students at Dinwiddie High School in Virginia. School authorities ordered those students who had the audacity to display American flags on their trucks to remove them forthwith. One student was yanked out of class and ordered to get rid of the Kingdom's flag. He did as he was told, but word spread through the school after a reporter posted the story on Facebook. Students rose to the occasion and returned to school the following day with flags flying from their trucks. It was a show of patriotism and a very good response to the schools idiotic claim that a parked vehicle with a flag on the back impaired the vision of the driver. The driver was actually in class and the flag was outside. Clearly, the school was afraid of that always present squeaky wheel and they caved and behaved badly. The happy ending came when residents of the community raised their collective voices, and forced the school to drop the ban. Hooray for the good guys, my fellow citizens. Let common sense and freedom prevail in the Kingdom.

Harlotte's Song

Oh, what a tangled web we weave

When first we practice

To control citizens of the Kingdom

And force them to think one way

And one way only

Let freedom ring!

      Dear Harlotte and Pop

      I can't believe this is happening in our country. It's so sad to hear these insane stories. No flags, no high fives with officer, everyone is offended at something. Then they demand whatever offends them to be changed. Their is no getting over it or sharing this earth with others. It's a Me, Me, Me society. If I'm offended I cry till I get my way. Very frightening

      Dear fp,

      Your spot will always remain open at the Inn. As for the paid loonies, the real loonies, the loonies in Congress and the loonies in the press, they are in this for the long haul. The best thing that can happen is for President Trump to hit a home run. When America really does shed the damage brought upon us by Obama, the complaints of the loons will just seem even more ridiculous than they seem now.

      pop & Harlotte... Hey there gang....I've been doing so much better since I decided not to tune into so many news~fake news~ lib-lies~ and all the rest of the garbage flyin around everywhere we turn. I'm being quite selective and I've learned who the extra crazy trouble makers I just ignore their existence.

      Life has to settle down for Americans, my friends. There's so much hate and anger and plotting and attacking. It all makes me very upset because we really can't do much about it. So so divided. It's a bad feeling. Just look at what 8 yrs of BHO has done to our once wonderful country....shame on him. Oh yes, he hurt us so badly.

      When do you suppose they'll stop just long enough to take a serious & fair look around? When will they realize they're creating their own fears and problems?

      Look, it seems to me you can only close your eyes & plug your ears and embrace pure Denial for so long....and then suddenly something hits you hard and you realize everything is just fine and it's going to be, not just OK, but great.

      I keep waiting and hoping for that time to arrive, Maybe soon, maybe a little at a time. So till then, we have to maintain the calm....hold on for dear life. Keep my spot open at the Inn.

      Pop and Harlotte:

      I am happy that President Trump is not afraid to continue with his plan to Make American Great Again. If he was a politician, he would have caved by now. I am hoping that we will once more come back to logic, which has gone down the hill many years ago, when the Dems came into office.

      I have had enough of them. I am off to the Inn to imbibe in some Montepulciano, my new favorite red........

      Good Morning Pop and Harlotte...

      Will the insanity never end..? This perpetual parade of Progressive puerility defines the New Left: Racist, intolerant, elitist, and anti-American...Why in the world would any American vote for a political party so full of hate and stupidity.?

      See you at the Inn, Pop...Trump Rules, the Left drools...Such a lovely sight.

      Pop and Harlotte,

      The Northampton Police should pay a visit to those who griped about their "High Five" program and apply a forceful "High Five" along side their fat heads.

      Have you heard of the new game being played?

      Whoever comes up with the craziest story is the winner. Second place goes to the story that gets the most people to do something stupid and then brag about it.

      Dear Mike,

      I am as confused as you are. I have talked to a few people, but I never receive answers other than criticism of Trump and the people he has chosen to work with. One woman emphatically told me that Bannon was a racist and a dangerous man. Another told me that Trump hated Jews and blacks and wanted to be a dictator. Most people simply looked at me and said nothing. This whole mess is maddening. Watching the results of the run for DNC chairman made it very clear that we are living in a very divided world. Picking Ellison as co-chair speaks volumes about the party. Ellison is an anti-semite with close ties to Farrakhan. He voted against anything aimed at keeping America safe. If he represents the direction of the Democratic Party and Democrats everywhere accept this as their direction, our only hope is to win every single time. The ability to think through issues logically is dwindling for many people. The preponderance of fake news is keeping many Americans dumber than dumb. The combination of being misinformed and angry makes for a very rocky it out of the park. See you at the Inn.

      Good morning Patti and Harlotte.

      Your examples of insanity described in this hub are now almost daily events in this country.

      I can't understand how we have become so divided in our thinking in our country. The anti-Trump movement is very disturbing because I can't get any answers with facts as to why they feel the way they do. I have asked several from the anti-Trump movement exactly how their lives have been affected in a negative way by President Trump but have never received an answer.

      I may have this wrong but it seems the two main camps have evolved into those who like big government in control of most everything, and those who prefer smaller government with individual freedoms and more opportunity. Other than that I can't figure it out.

      Much of the protest I hear is based on partially false information. For instance the move to "Repeal" and "Replace" Obamacare. Many only hear the "Repeal" and ignore the "Replace." Even Obama admitted that Obamacare was not working the way it was intended to work. So why not fix it?

      Who could possibly object to fixing our very broken IRS and eliminating the need to pay tax professionals hundreds of dollars to calculate how much we owe the government?

      Why would anyone object to bringing manufacturing and jobs back to America?

      I could go on and on but obviously I am confused and just don't understand all the protest.
