Butter is at the Table

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, August 29, 2016. Our delightful friend, Butter, is at the breakfast table this morning. She has been keeping tabs on the new breed of college freshmen. They are a sensitive group. Please make every effort to avoid offending them. If you stress them it may cause them to phone home and complain to Mommy and Daddy. Please join Butter and me this morning to discuss this growing trend of indulging college students in every way possible to make sure they will not be able to function in the real wold. Butter is preparing a luscious sampling of buttermilk pancakes for all of us. I will supply the toppings and the beverages. We hope to see you soon.

It Hurts So Bad

Thank you all for joining this morning. I am delighted to report that John Ellison, Dean of Students for the College at the University of Chicago, has no intention of bowing to incoming students if they object to speakers or opinions from other students. It has become increasingly commonplace for college students to demand the establishment of "Safe Spaces" to protect them from speech they cannot bear to hear because it will harm them emotionally. Finally, someone is standing up to the children, and it is a welcome relief. Students on this campus will not be able to back into so-called "Safe Spaces" where they will be protected from ideas and speech that bothers them. All I can say is, it is about time. Students have been rushing to their deans and advisors to complain about traumas they ere forced to endure because they saw a "Trump for President" poster. Colleges have been supporting their moronic responses and commonsense has fallen by the wayside. If only the example set by UC catches on. When Pop went to college she was encouraged to write and speak without fear of reprisal or punishment. The liberals in today's world don't believe in free speech. They believe only in their speech. They support only their ideas and they condemn everything else. I commend the University Of Chicago's stand on this important issue. To those students who are uncomfortable immersing themselves in this type of environment, I say stay home in Mommy and Daddy's basement. They will probably take care of you for as long as they live.

The Liberals Explode in Anger

Needless to say there were many people who exploded in anger when they learned of UC's stand on babies going to college. They railed about the schools's lack of compassion or interest in catering to the interests of certain sensitive groups. Boo-hoo, boo-hoo. Students cried out about their right to shout down or oust speakers they did not approve of. I can only suppose that this overdue turn of events has knocked these college babies out of their highchairs. How dare the schools expect them to act like grown-ups? How dare the school expect them to honor the rights of all people to speak freely. Boo-hoo, boo- hoo.

A Barbed Wire World

It is time for Americans to decide what kind of nation they want to live in. Right now we are headed in the wrong direction. College students with the backing and encouragement of other uber liberals want to shut down free speech. If that sounds attractive to anyone, I say move to a country that believes in silencing its citizens. If listening to different points of view fills you with angst, I say visit a health professional and work on dealing in the real world. Put off school for awhile and get your head on straight. If voting for a consummate liar sounds appealing, I suggest you look in the mirror and decide what kind of person you really are. If liars are your cup of tea, move to a totalitarian state and surrender your right to voice your opinion to the latest demagogue. If your vote affects others who value their freedom and who demand honesty, don't vote.

Save America or Bury It

Clearly, this is the most important election in our history. A vote for Hillary is affirmation that lying is okay. A vote for Hillary is affirmation that contempt for the law is just fine. A vote for Hillary will seal the deal for all of us. Our nation is on the edge of ruin, and without a doubt crooked Hillary will take us beyond that edge. We need to toughen up. We need to toughen up our expectations. We need to demand excellence. We need to tell students to toughen up, stop crying and realize that our nation is on the eve of destruction. It is impossible for me to believe that the many freedoms we have known are no longer needed or desired. I hope I am proven wrong. Let's throw the pacifiers and diapers away and grow up.

Butter's Song

This land is your land

This land is my land

Come fly with me

And keep it free....

      Dear teaches,

      Hillary is the wrong answer. Her inability to tell the truth is completely frightening. The fact that she gets away with it is horrifying. See you at the Inn.

      Under great leadership, America''s next generations may have a better chance of seeing dreams come true. I do not even want to think about what will happen should the wrong person reside in the White House (I do not believe Hillary is the answer to all of this.)

      Halleluia! There's a spark of sanity in this wildly insane world? I'm in love with my new HERO, John Ellison. Hurry! Where can we have him cloned?

      Good Morning suze,

      I agree with you completely when it comes to helicopter parenting. Today every single aspect of a child's life is managed, engineered and guaranteed to produce adults who cannot stand up to a challenge and who believe that they are all special. Having said that, I also believe that today's liberals have produced students who are completely intolerant to another person's point of view. That was not the case when I was in school and thought of myself as liberal. Today's liberals have morphed into insensitive, intolerant and frankly unbearable people. See you at the Inn.

      I don't think the problem are liberals. All students (Dems and Repubs) are calling for political correctness and protesting against speakers etc they don't want to hear. This is true of all college students today not just liberal ones. One cause is helicopter parents who have hovered over these kids all their lives and over protected them from the true challenges of life. Everything imaginable has been done for and given to these kids. Nothing is a challenge for these kids because they have not been given any challenges. Everyone on the team gets a trophy. Every team gets a trophy whether they have won a game or not. Kids are rewarded and bribed their way through school and family life. These kids have never heard or done anything in their lives they don't want to do or hear. No one says the word 'no' to them. Everything is up for negotiation. In schools parents want to run the classroom and go bezerk if their child receives a B and not an A. None of their children are average heaven forbid. There are many reasons why college students are the way they are today and it's not because of liberals.

      Dear Taze,

      I can't imagine this next generation fighting for anything. See you at the Inn.

      Things will only get worse with the next generations until they have to fight for their freedoms. Like everything else that is free from the government, it means nothing to anyone. Without having to pay for anything in some way, without having made an investment of blood, sweat and tears in it, it will be taken for granted, trampled upon, demanded and abused.

      I just read where 73 countries now require mandatory military service ranging from one year to 18 months.

      I wonder if those who need safe spaces would still need them if they had spent a year in the military?

      Dear jennifer,

      If they can figure out how to attempt leadership, they will lead us all over the cliff. Colleges are creating baby robots who cry at the drop of a hat, and haven't a clue about anything. See you at the Inn. I'll save you a seat.

      We are heading down a path of sending selfish, lazy, incompetent kids to college. If they have a problem Mommy and daddy will handle it because little Jonny is so stressed out. To think one day theses kids will be our leaders.

      Well, this is one Liberal who thinks the idea of a "safe place" is a pipe dream to the extreme. Hey, that rhymed. How cool! Seriously, toughen up, America, and quit whining when things aren't the way you envisioned them to be while taking a toke and reading Ayn Rand.

      But what do I really know?

      Good Morning Mike,

      When these "sensitive little flowers" are running our country, there won't be an actual nation. That would be wrong, after all. Citizens will follow the will of the global elite. The rest of the citizenry will be for all intents and purposes brain dead. See you at the Inn.

      Good Morning Tom,

      Now college is advanced daycare. What a hideous waste of money. What a shame for our future. See you at the Inn.

      Good Morning Pop and Butter.

      Isn't it amazing the millions of parents were able to raise perfectly normal children when there were no safe spaces? How in the world did we do this?

      An even bigger mystery is how did we arrive at the point where some feel it is necessary to protect their babies from hearing opposite points of view on any subject? I guess much of this came from the "every child gets a trophy" crowd.

      The really scary part is that some of these sensitive and delicate little flowers will be running this country one day.

      Pop and Butter,

      I say amen to your observations. I would have been insulted had anyone tried to provide me a "safe space" when I went to college. I went there to grow into adulthood.
