Slogans Don't Matter

Harlotte is at the Table

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Thursday, July 23, 2015. Our talented friend, Spider Harlotte, is at the breakfast table this morning. Harlotte has been very busy updating her web. She is documenting all the twists and turns that are leading up to the next presidential election. She dropped a stitch when she heard Democratic presidential candidate, Martin O'Malley apologize for daring to suggest that "All lives matter." Harlotte has asked me to extend an invitation to join her for breakfast. She would love to see you at the table to discuss this pathetic apology. She'd love to talk about it over chocolate croissants and Irish coffee. We hope to see you soon.

Be Careful What You Say

Thank you for joining me this morning. We are no longer a nation that believes in free speech. Saying the wrong thing can be very costly and knowing when to apologize can save the day. Of course, when it comes to presidential candidate, Martin O'Malley, apologizing out of fear is very telling. We don't need a president who is adept at apologizing. We have one right now and all he has accomplished is to diminish us in every conceivable way. O'Malley was speaking at the Netroots Nation conference in Phoenix. The group is made up of liberal activists and the subject was police brutality. The former Maryland Governor, along with candidate Bernie Sanders, was booed off the stage by protestors shouting the slogan "Black Lives Matter." The "Black Lives Matter" movement doesn't tolerate any deviation from the message. Apparently, O'Malley didn't get the memo.

Don't All Lives Matter?

Martin O'Malley said the unthinkable in front of this group. He told them that black lives matter, white lives matter and all lives matter. The outrage took over the event, because all lives do not matter to this group. O'Malley should have stood his ground. All lives do matter. He should have made it clear that he would stand behind his statement. Instead, he apologized for having the audacity to suggest that white lives matter and all lives matter. In an appearance on the internet based "This Week in Blackness", host L. Joy Williams blasted O'Malley for being completely insensitive. In discussing his statement, he was afraid to repeat the words, "white lives matter, all lives matter." Instead, he referred to them as "those other two phrases." I don't think this fiasco can get any dumber. Once again O'Malley had an opportunity to set the record straight and act like a man. Instead, he took the low road and behaved like a frightened little boy. He'll never be president and we can all be grateful for that.

The Movement

The catchy phrase, "Black Lives Matter" is actually a movement. ACORN hires protesters to demonstrate in hotbed areas. Protesters were paid $5,000 a month to demonstrate in Ferguson, MO. ACORN changed its name to MORE in Missouri. They received millions of dollars in funding from George Soros who never misses an opportunity to bring chaos into our lives. Here comes a twist that almost brings a smile to my face. MORE didn't pay the protesters. The protesters then had to hold a sit-in at the MORE office. When you have to get paid to protest, is it really still a protest?

Enough!

It is time to stop the insanity. It is time to grow up, get real and tackle our problems. Violence in the black community is everyone's problem, but it is leadership within the community that is needed to clean things up. Protests won't do it. Blaming white people won't do it. Slogans won't do it and slogans don't matter. Hard work, common sense, strong parenting and strong leadership will do it. Education is key. Political correctness is just another name for sensitivity that borders on stupidity. It is virtually impossible to solve anything when issues can't be discussed in real terms without regard to political correctness. Protesters who have to get paid to protest, are just hired troublemakers. Apparently, black lives matter more when a check accompanies the protest. We really don't have time for this nonsense. It is time to roll up our sleeves, all of our sleeves, and stop the racial tensions that were ignited by President Obama, Eric Holder and Al Sharpton. There is work to be done and we don't have time for political theater.

      Good Morning Nadine,

      O'Malley was Governor of Maryland until recently. You are correct, not knowing who he is makes perfect sense. You haven't missed a thing.

      I have no clue who O'Malley is. Must be a USA politician? It does sound that I have not missed much.

      Good Morning Mike,

      I agree and we don't need Hillary either! I'll be at the Inn on the early side to kick off the weekend. See you there.

      The good news is we already see what kind of President Mr. O'Malley would make. We already have one of those and don't need another one.

      Welcome to the new norm. It is so sickening. See you at the Inn.

      The one positive that comes out of this is that we all clearly see that Mr. O'Malley lacks the most basic quality of leadership.

      Only career politicians back down from basic truths when the truth they speak is not popularly acceptable.

      Backing down from saying something as basic as "all lives matter" is a trait more appropriately associated with a piddling pusillaminous puppy.

      Dear dr,

      Sadly, what really matters to us does not matter at all to this lawless administration that is marching to the orders of Obama's mentors. See you at the Inn.

      You are correct, bp. slogans do not matter. What does matter is an apathetic populace in our country who appear to follow without question. And horribly misguided terrorists who kill without compunction. That matters.

      I would guess that one of his "Yes" men told him things were better at the VA, which of course is what he wanted to hear.

      Heaven forbid he would check on this for himself.

      Dear Mike,

      The liar in chief addressed a veteran's group and told them and the nation that things at the VA are much better. I wanted to throw my TV out the window. This blatant lying is hard to bear. See you at the Inn.

      This administration has done a great job of dividing this nation. Obama should go down in history as the great divider. He wants a legacy and this could be his.

      In my entire life I have never yet been able to solve a problem by ignoring it. But that seems to be the problem solving technique of this administration. In addition to ignoring problems, they divert attention away from the problems using smoke screens and attacks on others.

      We may survive the remaining time till the next election but it is looking more doubtful every day.

      Good Morning Debrah,

      Yes, all lives matter, but integrity is in very short supply. The Lawless Obama administration is proof of our demise. See you at the Inn.

      Good Morning Tom,

      The nightmare of all this "change" is just coming to fruition. Free speech is now political incorrectness and life is held very cheaply when it's not the right color or age. See you at the Inn.

      Good Morning billy,

      "Wimps" is a polite word to describe those who are deep into the PC craze.'All in the Family" would cause WWIII today. Just think, all theses idiots vote! See you at the Inn.

      Pop and Bro-bill.......I REALLY love you both too!! It's more than "a bunch of wimps!"....It's a blatant bold kidnapping of more and more of our SIMPLE rights!!

      When will it stop? Our intelligence is insulted on a daily basis. Our right to speak, express an opinion, address an issue......They're revamping our native tongue, for crying out loud.!!

      I will NOT be intimidated.....led by the nose.....threatened, warned nor SILENCED!

      If any of you out there can't HEAR me....READ MY FRIGGAN LIPS!!

      All lives do matter. And being a person of integrity, who stands behind the truth also matters.

      Pop and Charlotte,

      By now it's pretty obvious that all lives do not matter to today's liberal, progressives. Just ask one of the 55 to 60 million babies slaughtered since Roe vs Wade in the 70's. I forgot, they were never born so they can't answer. But Planned Parenthood abortion mongers can discuss 17 weekers and crunchy fetuses between bites of salad and sips of wine.

      Paula speaks, I listen. Sis never lies. This PC craze has driven me nutso for several decades now, and it continues to get worse. My God, most of these people wouldn't have survived my childhood. I would be very hesitant to speak in front of a crowd in today's world. It seems to me to be virtually impossible to speak to more than five people without pissing someone off or hurting someone's feelings. Bunch of wimps if you ask me.

      Run for president! I love you, I really do! See you at the Inn.

      3 years ago from Beautiful Upstate New York

      When this whole insane PC craze began to emerge and ultimately take over our daily lives.........because I am who I AM.....I immediately rejected the concept of having "words" placed in my mouth OR.....substituting one word/phrase for another (more appropriate in the OPINION of others)....OR.....denying myself the freedom of speech...OR walking on eggs. TO HELL WITH THAT GARBAGE.

      Once again I blazed the trail! I was very vocal about the need for our Nation to BACK OFF the PC train.!

      Now, suddenly everyone is beginning to clearly see the BS, phoniness and real DANGERS of this C-R-A-P!! Team names, street names, historical landmark names....have been called in question for "change"......due to someone or group feeling "offended."???? Really?

      OK.....all lives DON'T matter....I mean, well, they do, but not right now....ah...er black lives matter..YES, and I meant no offense, but maybe all lives matter? NO? Yeah sure, I can see what you mean.....I suppose black lives matter more....and what about red, yellow and brown lives?....Well, I'm sorry. This was not my intention. ...I mean, I........well, you know..............

      I have an idea!! Everyone, repeat after me: GET REAL, GET OVER YOURSELVES, GET A LIFE AND FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE STOP THE INSANITY!

      THERE's your apology!

      Good Morning taxlarry,

      I imagine they can collect food stamps, disability, welfare and unemployment while employed by ACORN. See you t the Inn. I'll bring some acorns that we can roast in an open fire.

      Obviously, we don't have to worry about an O'Malley administration. Talk about a dope. Question: If the protesters did not get paid, do they collect unemployment?
