Proof of Insanity

Updated on December 15, 2014

Manny Prays for Our Future

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, December 15, 2014. Our dear friend, Mantis Manny, is with me at the breakfast table. He has asked me to invite all of you to a delicious feast of homemade muffins of every flavor and size. I will be adding Irish Coffees to increase the fun. Manny has witnessed so many bizarre and inane things of late that he is concerned we may have lost our collective minds.


And the Vice President Speaks..

Thank you all for joining me this morning. Let's jump right in and meet the crazies. Vice President Joe Biden gave a pep-talk to a group of young women at the White House during a technology event that included boys and girls. The esteemed Vice President told an all girl group seated at one table that they should understand that they were as smart as any boy in the world. Where that unsolicited and out of date bit of advice came from will remain one of life's great mysteries. Hopefully, the girls just ignored his insulting remarks and moved on. That's what I do when he speaks.


Traumatized Law Students Catch a Break

Did you know that Columbia Law students were granted a final exam postponement because they said they were traumatized by recent grand jury decisions that did not indict white police officers? Perhaps they should receive counseling, lollipops and an exit right out of law school. Are we to believe that in the future if they lose a case they will be entitled to disability payments?


The President Gets it Wrong!

Sorry, President Obama but you would be best advised to read the Bible a bit more thoroughly before you start quoting verses. In an effort to promote your executive action on immigration policy in a speech in Nashville, Tennessee you said that the Bible says not to throw stones in glass houses. Sorry, Mr. President, but the reference doesn't exist.


An Invocation to Satan and Allah

At the beginning of a Lake Worth, Florida City Commission meeting in early December, anti-theist Preston Smith gave an inane invocation that included Satan, Allah, Buddha, Zeus and yes, Jesus. At the end of his invocation he thanked atheists, agnostics and humanists for being logical. Who invited this guy anyway?


Planned Parenthood in the Schools

Sex education has gone way over the top in California. A class at Acalanes High School of Lafayette is being taught by employees of Planned Parenthood and the curriculum is a real eye opener. Part of the lesson asks students to answer a check list to see if they are ready for sex. I don't think the student's parents were ready for the questions. Then to add insult to injury is the introduction of the "genderbread" person asking students to refer to the faux cookie and identify themselves as "agender", "bigender", "two spirit", "third gender" and last but surely not least Gender queer." All I can say is WHAT!!!


Money, Money, Money

Eight EPA workers were paid more than $1 million while on paid administrative leave. The employees were on leave for a minimum of four months to a maximum of four years. Now that's what I call a good deal if you are not a taxpayer or a victim of the EPA's overreach.

Speaking of money, did you know that the Department of Injustice has forced the town of Bridgewater, New Jersey to pay Muslims a whopping $7.75 million dollars because the town rejected the building of a mosque because of an ordinance that limits houses of worship to major roads. The ordinance was enacted in an attempt to preserve the residential character of the different neighborhoods. Sounds reasonable to me, but not to Attorney General Eric Holder. The federal government runs the show now, make no mistake about it. Towns and states are just for show now that the government has grown big, intrusive and ugly.

Did you know that thousands of prisoners are filing phony tax refund claims and getting paid! . A report was released by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration that in 2012 more than 137,000 fake tax returns were filed amounting to an astounding $1 billion. Some of the phony claims were caught, but the ever vigilant IRS paid out $70 million in refunds. I guess the IRS has a soft spot for inmates as opposed to Conservatives who they deplore.

Caught on Tape

Let's end this foray into madness with Opelousas, Louisiana Mayor Don Cravins Sr. Mr. Cravens has been captured on video telling a crowd that if they voted early, they should go right back and vote again. He says that one more time's not going to hurt anyone. I would be remiss if I didn't point out that Mayor Cravins is a Democrat!

Manny's Song

The moment I wake up

Before I stretch my wings

I say a little prayer for you

Maybe I should say a big one!

      Dear fp,

      I am crying and laughing too. Things are so out of whack that I really can't believe I am not dreaming. By the way, the dream is a nightmare. Meet me at the Inn. We need to plan an escape route, because the crazies are now in control. Pack a bag!

      Dear maven,

      You have it right and it is time to beam ourselves out of here. The problem is...where do we go? Let's talk it over at the Inn. Just to be on the safe side, let's lock the door behind us.

      Pop...I'll have to return later to comment......when I'm done, wait, maybe I'm crying. OK, it's probably a little of both. In any case....I don't think I can form a complete sentence that will make any sense....I also suddenly have a head ache................

      Dear lambservant,

      I am so sorry all these idiots made you ill. If you can make it to the Inn tonight everything is on me. Hang in there....

      Dear bradmaster,

      Great points! Eric Holder only upholds the law when it comes to certain people. He is okay with the criminals and the Muslims and from what I hear the New Black Panther Party. He is very selective about the laws he upholds and the people he prosecutes. As for the rest of the fools, I say the students are absurd, and Planned Parenthood is way out of line. As for Biden, well Joe is Joe. See you at the Inn. There is not enough Irish on the planet to dull the pain of all this insanity.

      I am on my way out the door to the doctor. My eye rolling and head shaking are out of control and I can't see or think clearly. Obama's scriptural blunder was careless. There are actually verses that communicate the "glass houses" message (judge not lest ye judge), but the one he quoted isn't biblical as you pointed out. It's nice that he's trying to use biblical principles in his speech, but it doesn't work for him because he doesn't use Scripture or it's principles in most of presidential actions.

      The planned parenthood gender quiz is beyond revolting. If I were a parent of a child in that school district, I'd snatch him out faster than you can say "Obama/Biden suck."

      Dismal news these days. Thanks to Mannie and BP for the delicious muffins and coffee. It ought to sustain me in the ER.

      What a great selection of the tail wagging the dog.


      I think that Columbia University should be sanctioned for pretending that they have a college of law. It seems to me that they should be giving degrees in drama, sociology instead of law.

      If these students couldn't take the pressure of a totally distant self inflicted pressure, then how would they be able to withstand the pressure from the opposing side in a court trial.


      As to the Muslim award, it seems that all religions were treated the same, as far as location. What happened to the Equal Protection standard?


      As to the IRS, it seems to me that even though the prisoners were in prison, they still should be prosecuted for fraud, and perjury. If the IRS and the government don't do that, then they are once again not following their own law.

      The IRS commissioner should be Fired, as well as the top tier of the IRS hierarchy for incompetence.


      Where is Eric Holder the US AG when the Mayor of LA is advocating voter fraud. And the liberals say that we don't need photo id for voting, because there is no fraud.


      I need more Irish in the coffee after reading this hub.

      To the American Way of life, going down like the Titanic.

      Good Morning Lady Guinevere,

      Obama quoted the Bible for political reasons. Trust me, it is not in his library. As for the rest of the fools, well this is what happens when America dumbs down. See you at the Inn.

      Good Morning billy,

      If we were starting out now, it would be comforting to know that people are now truly caring and sensitive. We could have skipped out on every exam if we told our professors that we watched the evening news and felt all weepy. Ah, life is good! See you at the Inn.

      Good Morning Tom,

      You are very wise. Now POTUS, on the other hand, doesn't do his homework. He really needs to brush up on the Bible and the Constitution! See you at the Inn.

      What happened to the church and state being far apart...POTUS quoting anything from that book of books is illogical to say the least.

      I do not trust the EPA at all, not even a drop of rain. They are only doing things for monetary value and not people value and the lives therein. They have screwed this part of my world up tremendously allowing the pollution of our wats, land, food and more by permitting a BRICK company to come in a drill or excavate for SHALE.

      I really do not know what this country is coming to either but it isn't good and the future--oh my.

      At the risk of seeming insensitive....traumatized and can't take an exam??? Hell, I was traumatized before every exam, simply because I didn't study. Little did I know I could have used that as an excuse. Damn it!

      Pop and Manny,

      Before POTUS quotes any more questionable scripture he should consult the Book of Google first. My scriptural quote from the Book of Benjamin states,"A stitch in time, saves nine." Amen.

      Good Morning Deborah,

      Sometimes I feel that I am dreaming, because I can't believe so many insane things keep happening in the real world. Then I remember people like Al Sharpton, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and all the people who support them and I shake my head and cry. See you at the Inn. It's safe inside!

      Good Morning taxlarry,

      I am grateful we have the Inn to seek refuge in. I'll be there on the early side tonight. Knock twice and I will let you in. The lunatics are everywhere.

      I am not shocked by the insanity. There are many who would rather make a mockery of our country than try to make things better.
