My Head is Spinning

Manny is at the Table

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Tuesday, December 1, 2015. Our pious friend,Mantis Manny , is at the breakfast table this morning. Manny spends a good deal of his time observing little bits and pieces of life here and abroad. He has come here this morning to share some of his observations. Manny briefed me earlier on what he wished to discuss. All I can say is that my head is spinning. We hope to see you here soon. Manny is serving scrambled eggs and sausage. I will be mixing up a batch of Bloody Marys for your enjoyment.

Help for the Ailing

Thank you all for joining me this morning. I want to offer up a few examples of life here in the great USA. Come with me as we visit Framingham State University in Massachusetts. A student at the school filed a bias report in which he accused a fellow student of racism. Apparently, the offending student has a sticker of a Confederate flag atop his laptop. The sensitive student was advised to seek counseling to soothe his damaged soul. The school, thankfully and surprisingly, didn't ban the flag, but I know you will all be relieved to learn that the students involved had a "productive discussion". The Bias Protocol and Response Team will follow up on this most tragic and disturbing incident. God Bless America!

Forbidden Words

The Washington Redskins were attacked on Twitter because the team had the audacity to wish their fans a Happy Thanksgiving. The fans felt that the team was being insensitive. Now follow this reasoning if you wish. The team should have refrained from even mentioning the holiday because of the link between the Pilgrims and Native Americans. There appears to be a direct correlation between sensitivity and the inability to think straight. God Bless America!

Put That Pillow Down!

West Point cadets have taken pillow fights to a new and dangerous level. This summer a pillow fight erupted that left 30 cadets bloodied. The fights are now officially banned. I have no idea what was in those pillows, but our soldiers should consider using them in battle. God Bless America!

PETA in Trouble

PETA is in trouble. Of course, they should have been in trouble a long time ago, but now they are being sued by a family for $9 million. The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals took a family pet Chihuahua from the home's porch, threw him in a van and had him killed. PETA regularly euthanizes neglected animals, but in this case they took the wrong dog. They sent a fruit basket to the family to apologize for murdering the family pet. God Bless America!

Under Attack

Protesters in Chicago attacked a Christmas tree. The protesters were angry at the fatal police shooting of a black 17 year old. They showed their contempt for the shooting by attacking a Christmas tree and shouting, "this is part of the problem." God Bless America.

Climate Charge

In keeping with the president's belief that climate change is the most pressing problem facing us today, Yale University has decided to enact a campus-wide carbon charge" to help fight the evils of climate change. This move comes on the heels of a White House climate change summit. In attendance were more than 200 universities who pledged to take steps to save the planet. Tell me, who is going to save us from the students they are graduating? God Bless America!

The Pilgrims Were from Asia!

Jesse Watters visited a restoration of a colonial village to ask people what they knew about Thanksgiving. A sip of that Bloody Mary might do you some good right about now. He learned that Columbus sailed his ship in 1942. The pilgrims landed in Long Island. Most of them were from Asia and some from South America. They crossed the blue ocean on the USS Constitution to celebrate Christ's first birthday. God Bless America!

Manny's Song

The moment I wake up

Before I stretch my wings

I say a little prayer for you.......

      I was laughing about the pillow fight comment. It just may be the thing to use! Americans, at least some of us, are just shy of being normal. I meet some challenging individuals on a daily basis!

      Good Morning dr,

      I am glad you're laughing, because if we don't laugh, we cry. See you at the Inn. Just in case, lock the doors behind you.

      Good Morning FitnezzJim,

      Obama has brought government stupidity to new heights, or should I say lows? See you at the Inn

      Thanks, bp, for my morning fix of laughter. You just confirmed that more and more the U.S.A. is becoming the land of the clueless and the home of the stupid.

      We live in a time when the government function of creating stupid rules has been replaced by a leadership process that ensures stupid rules.

      Dear lamb servant,

      All those wonderful qualities you mentioned are no longer considered desirable. Stupidity and obscene PC are the name of the game. I don't want to play anymore. See you at the Inn.

      Dear fp,

      You are a bright shining light in the midst of insane stupidity. I too know that the Pilgrims were from Turkey. See you at the Inn.

      Dear tsadjatlo,

      Global warming is the devil according to our esteemed president. I listened and watched his speech at the summit and concluded two things. One he is completely disengaged from the subject matter , and two, he can't say anything unless it is written down. Boring!!!! See you at the Inn. I brought in croissants.

      There are too many people drinking the Obama left-wing koolaid. The Thanksgiving one is so ridiculous. Im not too unsure that those most offended sat down to a sumtuous Turkey feast. Goodwill now appears to be one of the most offensive issues in America. That goes for thinking, feeling, having an opinion, and decling the koolaid in exchange for good sense, and sound reasoning, and exercising kindness and integrity.

      How I LOVE "Watters World." I would feel badly for Jesse having to come to face to face with some of the dumbest, most clueless individuals on our streets, but he has more fun & laughter more often than the rest of us! I just sit sort of speechless & motionless for a while after Jesse's man on the street routine. I'm a perpetual optimist! I keep waiting for the announcement that the whole thing was a big prank & all those people were just pretending to not know a single damned thing about the world they live in!!

      Oh C'mon! Don't try to fool me! If the Pilgrims were from Asia, Thanksgiving Feast would be fried rice and Moo Goo Gai Pan in little white carry containers, eaten with chop sticks. We ALL know the Pilgrims were from Turkey!! Damn, how dumb some people are.

      (Look pop, we can only live around this degree of stupid & crazy before a little starts rubbing off.) Cuckoo!!

      Larry, you can say that again, getting worse! I ponder what people will say in October 2016 when terrorist threats and rioting in the streets give Obama an excuse to declare Martial law, suspend the constitution and make himself a three term president!

      Why would he do that you ask - given the way he thinks the only reason may be that he doesn't want to give up his throne to a Clinton, let alone a Donald Trump or other climate change denier!

      It's simply a case of the electorate getting what they voted for, dope and change wasn't it?

      Things are bad and getting worse. There are no answers to the stupidity of our time. Pray hard a repub gets the white house so we can stop the madness.

      tsadjatko - I have to wonder what the leaders from other countries are thinking about our glorious leader now? I would imagine there was some head shaking going on the the conference in Paris.

      AND.......global warming is by far the most dire threat to America's security. Terrorist? Well actually by the left's (led by Obama and John Kerry) logic, one must conclude then if climate change is THE most pressing threat, beheadings, genocide, mass murder of Christians and anyone who disagrees with radical Islam, Iran's threat of nuclear holocaust well gee, all that would do is reduce the carbon footprint of humanity and that's a good thing.

      It's a full-time job protecting people from themselves. Never underestimate the stupidity of the average citizen in this country, and that crosses all political and religious lines.

      Always an enjoyable read.

      Good Morning Patti - After reading this hub I get the distinct feeling that you are not content with the direction America is headed. I think the inmates have now taken control of the asylum.
