Still Crazy

Chiquita is at the Table

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Sunday, June 4, 2017. Our noisy friend, Cicada Chiquita, is at the stove this morning preparing bacon and eggs for all the Poppers. She awoke this morning to hear news of yet another terror attack on the people of London by people who don't belong there. The Brits are now in the act of rounding up suspects they already knew about. They are always late to the game, because political correctness has dumbed down their society and crippled their ability to go on the offensive. It is probably too late for them. They allowed their country to be invaded by people they knew nothing about. Now they are paying the price. Our new president is trying to be proactive by instituting a temporary travel ban on all those wishing to come here from hotbeds of terror. Our courts are run by far left liberals who have been successful in tying his hands. Common sense is dead and buried, and we are all going to pay a hefty price for its demise. Please join Chiquita for breakfast. She intends to set forth examples of the insanity that has overtaken our nation. It is time to put our national foot down and stop the madness. We look forward to seeing you at the table.

Magical Thinking

Thanks so much for joining Pop and me this morning. As I look around our country, I see so many examples of thinking that is so devoid of common sense that it defies imagination. If only I had a magic wand that I could use to bring back rational thought. If only I had a magic wand that would restore respect for journalism, freedom of speech and the president. It seems to me that liberals believe they have that wand. They wave it and commit stupid acts and declare themselves brilliant. This weekend protestors decided to march in 130 cities throughout the nation. They are demanding changes to the federal investigations into collusion between Russia and President Trump. One investigation or another has been ongoing since President Trump took office. Thus far, it has been a complete waste of time and money, our money. We have bigger fish to fry. If common sense were alive and well, this investigation would have ended by now.

Speaking of rallies, the mayor of Portland, Oregon urged organizers to cancel a Trump Free Speech Rally, calling such events inappropriate and dangerous. Apparently, free speech is cause for concern. The mayor feels we shouldn't be promoting it. This could only happen in America today. There was a time when we valued free speech. Now speech is only free if it reflects the viewpoints of the far left. Where did they bury common sense? We have to dig it up before it's too late.

Collegiate Craziness

No discussion about the death of common sense would be complete without mentioning our college campuses. Students at Evergreen College in Washington have called for a day without white people. A white professor objected to the plan, and the students immediately called for his dismissal. The chief of police in the area advised the professor not to go to campus believing it was too dangerous. Remember the days when the good guys won? Get that shovel, Poppers. We need to find common sense and bring it back to life.

Words Hurt

The police in Seattle, Washington are no longer allowed to refer to alleged criminals as suspects. Instead, they are now called community members. The Washington Department of Corrections has been barred from calling prisoners inmates. They' re now called "students." This brings the issue of political correctness to a new low. Let's say a man robs a convenience store. The police report will say that a community member was detained on charges. If convicted, he will become a student at a correctional facility. We are going to need a large digger to find common sense. It is buried to far underground to get it out with a shovel.

Source

Politicians

A discussion about madness could never be complete without mentioning Rep. Maxine Waters. Waters appeared on MSNBC's AM Joy and declared that the American people were frustrated with her party's inability to remove President Trump from office. Actually, the American people I know would love to see Rep. Waters removed from office.

California legislators are making a grand push for socialized medicine in their state. They are pushing knowing all the while that they can't fund it! Things don't have to make sense in California. These people put Nancy Pelosi in office. Need I say more?

Source

Media Madness

The MSM in our nation represent all that is wrong with journalism. After the hideous terror attack in Manchester, England they worried themselves sick about the backlash that Muslims might have to go through in England and here in our nation. Their hearts, thoughts and prayers were with the Muslim communities. The dead teens were an afterthought.

Chiquita's Song

I'm Chiquita Cicada and I'm here to say

The insanity may be here to stay.....

      All I did is ask a question of, BP, not Bill (who we know has a habit of leaving provocative and/or pandering comments on BP's hub pages and disappearing...sounds like he's the troll to me).

      But then you attack and engage in character assassination of me, using obviously despicable tactics of liberals (whom you admittedly love, I quote "90% of the people I love are liberals").

      You attack me for asking of BP, not Bill, a simple question about a liberal's comment who everyone knows Bill isn't even going to read it let alone answer it.

      "What you see as vitriol is actually me" is the only honest thing you have said in your entire tirade. I didn't call anyone a troll, a coward, a terrorist, a cave dweller nor tell anyone how to be a Christian. That my dear was you using all liberal tactics, lies, innuendo, shift the subject, ignore the facts, and name-call. Congratulations, you are the queen of vitriol and you just proved it.

      I wondered why BP even allowed your vitriol and my responses to it (which did not make you look anything but pathetic) but I can only conclude BP is a stand up hubber who realizes that a person should be allowed to respond to false character assassination and real, not imagined, hate filled attacks by liberals like you.

      Lori.....FYI.....Patty is not ignoring me. She's refraining from feeding the troll Tsad, who doesn't scare me with his nastiness. Patty and I are friends.

      What you see as vitriol is actually me, defending a much-loved, well -respected writer here from the unnecessary snide comments of Tony the Terrorist. He comes out of his cave now & then to cause trouble, insult people and tell people how to be a Christian because he's such a wonderful example of one.

      Sorry you misconstrued the exchange. And if he attacks another friend of mine, I'll go after him again. He may disgust me, but he doesn't scare me. He's all mouth and no heart or soul at all. He's been back in his cave again for nearly 2 weeks. Good place for him.

      Dear Paula,

      It seems you have paradise right at your fingertips. Good friends, great food and a view to die for. What could be better. Thanks for sharing my hub. Enjoy your vacation and we'll "get together" in a couple of weeks.

      Hi pop....I see you haven't left yet for the Island Paradise....I'm already in Ohio....beautiful drive. My friends have a summer home that is so spectacular, it almost feels like an Island Paradise to sit on their gorgeous deck, out over the Lake....Lots of sail boats out, but not for long I hope....the sky is a bit threatening this evening. Huge party tonight....Catered, live music, crab, clams, oysters, lobster.....so sorry pop, no dumplings...LOL.

      I let everyone read your article....they all give you "thumbs Up!"

      Gotta run. Playing "Trivia" and I'm up from everyone by 12 points! You & Hubby have a ball!

      I don't know what's more disheartening, the terrible state of affairs you wrote about (especially since I live in WA state) or the vitriol and drama from some of your commenters. Good for you for ignoring them. Don't feed the trolls is my motto. And I hope this isn't goodbye from Bill either. God bless you dear Patty.

      Good Morning Pino,

      I have been near those French no-go zones and let me tell you they are frightening. The French were lax and foolish, and now they are paying a price. The same applies to London. They kept their heads in the sand for far too long. There are probably more terrorists in both countries than citizens who wish for peace. See you at the Inn.

      This is so revealing. I see why you have disappeared from our "friendly" conversation Paula. Just like most liberals you disappear from the conversation once the lie is revealed. You realized, I'm sure, because you are not stupid, that no one would believe I, whom you despise, used the term bat-shit crazy and then what? You were so impressed with me, whom you detest, you assimilated it into your comments on Hub Pages? You modeled your vernacular after mine, me, whom you call a coward? I'm the blame for your foul mouth? Here is what I found from a Hub pages search for Bat-shit, sounds like you came up with it entirely on your own, even bragging about it:

      Shanmarie......Now "bat-shit crazy" I definitely KNOW~~intimately! LOL In fact, I just used that term a few days ago. Once in a while it's fun to communicate with someone who is bat-shit crazy, don't you think?

      Not only do they make me Laugh my ass off.....but just think of how wonderfully "normal" they make us feel!!..........................LMAO!

      -----------------------------------------------------------------

      Paula

      15 months ago from Beautiful Upstate New York

      You don't know her. 90% of the people I love are liberals. Out of respect,we avoid political discussion. Although liberals....they are NOT Bat-shit CRAZY liberals.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------

      And oh yeah, not one comment by me anywhere using that phrase, not even repeating it in reference to your use of it.

      If you ask me hangin around those 90% liberals you love has you acting just like one. You don't need to take responsibility for your actions but blame them on someone else, someone you see as your enemy. Exactly what hypocrite liberals do, a primary tactic we all know they use when caught in a lie. Wiener, Debbie Wassermann Schultz, the list goes on and on. Not a crowd I'd want to be in the company of.

      Pop and Chiquita: Theresa May will find out on Thursday if she is a strong leader or not. Three terrorist attacks in as many months, and the police round up 12 of them after the latest attack? Who knows what will happen. While Facebook and Google try to protect freedom of speech, I believe it is all about greed. These two companies say they do everything they can to stop the terrorists; however, they do nothing. I realize that we do have freedom of speech, but that is in America. Most citizens of other countries do not enjoy this freedom, so our laws should not apply to foreigners, especially when they are trying to radicalize anyone who will listen. What we need is for laws that apply to terrorists like Israel has. That little country has done so much to protect itself, and we can learn a few things from them. We must have this travel ban; we must pass laws that will allow suspected terrorists to be watched, and we must not ever allow Muslims in America to have their "no go" zones. If we do not protect ourselves, we will end up like Europe. I bet those countries are cursing the day they welcomed all those refugees. I am now off to the Inn.......

      Good afternoon, Pop and Chiquita...

      I think the British Governments' baffling and disingenuous instructions to its citizens to Run, Hide, and Tell is having Winston is not just turning in his grave, he is doing the Twist...An American response to Islamic terror would be Draw, Aim, and Shoot...What has happened to the Brits that faced down Hitler..?

      Have a great vacation, Pop...As the Brits say, we will carry on...

      I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and say you are mistaken instead of flat out lying. Do a search of hubpages for bat-shit (how you have used it before) or bat shit and you will not find me using that phrase anywhere, however I can't say the same for a search with your user name (re: this hub page) Likening anyone to bat-shit is something that would never cross my mind, however it seems to be in the forefront of yours.

      There are crazies here but if I even point that out it is in context of what is usually a long discussion that demonstrates exactly how and why the crazy hubber is crazy, but I never liken anyone to the types of names you have flung around like Bat Shit. And that isn't even the issue, name calling, the issue is you engage in name calling yet demand of BP my comment be censored simply for asking a question, which we all know won't be answered anyway because Bill evidently doesn't even read the comments (other than his own) or answer questions about his. So what harm was my question? He doesn't even care.

      You have no ground to stand on making my comment an issue when it is totally true and not me but you are the only person in this comment section attacking and denigrating people and frankly coming unwound, over an imagined assessment of my behavior.

      Have a nice day Paula, sounds like you could really use one.

    • fpherj48 profile image

      Paula 5 months ago from Beautiful Upstate New York

      Shaddup, Kabal. The first time I ever heard the term Bat-$hit crazy libs was from...YOU!!! LOL. Short memory hypocrite. You don't need to call anyone a name. Your insults, rudeness & vitriol far exceeds any name-calling. So sorry...I was unaware you suddenly love people like Les, & AP. Good, you can have them..they're all yours.

      You're such a liar with your phony excuses for being an a$$. Does it hurt your precious eyes to see foul language, poor Tony, you Hypocrite!! Like I said, try that exile bit again. It was really great for the rest of us.. Keyboard your heart out little boy. Have a damned field day. You'll be typing to yourself. Pop is going on vacation....I'm visiting friends out of state! Stew in your own poison.

    • tsadjatko profile image

      TSAD 5 months ago from maybe (the guy or girl) next door

      False accusations all as usual, just what I'd expect from hypocrite hubbers, like you, who calls the hubbers you don't like .

      "Bat-$hit crazies .....like leslie and Mad Man AP....or, if you have the balls, go head to head with Esoteric! Bill is NOT a Bat-$hit Crazy."

      but feel you have to defend hit and run vacuous comments from criticism simply because you like the person. I didn't call anyone names, I asked questions.

      Anyone who reads my comments knows I question things I don't understand and commend those who make factual arguments. I find it hard to appreciate the actions of anyone who deletes comments simply because they can't answer those questions honestly or don't want to. Once deleting the facts they can continue to keep their head in a hole in the ground, that is the obvious conclusion. When having a civil disagreement it does not make your case to delete out of spite.

      Foul language, yeah, I'd think you'd want BP to delete that from a hubber, but know that's OK with you but you think questions should be deleted.

      I'm happy to leave the foul language to people like you.

      Nothing more or less than we've come to expect from you, T. Finger-pointing...."Oh No, it's not me, It's YOU....Na na na na" Such a little boy. There, there T....run home to Mama & get a band aid for your Boo boo. It kills you to be knocked over by a woman. and one with a FOUL MOUTH....oh DEAR, you poor baby!!

      You needn't GIVE me a thing. I'm fully aware of my worth and 100% confident I'm no coward! Not by a long shot.

      It was so very nice around here while you were in hiding for many weeks, in your self-imposed exile. So many of us are really hoping you do that again. You need to regroup. You've become boring & repetitive......and those are your better qualities. I see you exposed your true self to Yves. LOL When will you learn to stop annoying strong, smart, independent women? You're just no match for us. Give it up.

      Paula, seems to me the one with vile and foul mouth hatred winds up being you, but I'll give you this, at least you don't hit and run, making often provocative comments and ignoring anyone's questions about them or responses to the comments. That's what I'd call cowardly.

      A really vast number of Americans have never chosen to get deeply involved in National Politics. Some don't even focus on their own local politics. Individuals have these rights to choose their intentions, activities & goals in America, you know. Not everyone needs to abandon their daily life to march!( I'm speaking to Tony, Mr. Nasty)

      It's no secret at all that individuals can't do much of anything to control the government, change the status quo that is directed, enforced, as well as "forced" upon us by those at the top. What? Get angry & stomp our feet? become frustrated and belligerent or worse, bust out in violent, destructive protest? Yeah, we see how that works out, destroying their own towns and property, behaving like savages in the streets of our Country. March on Washington, carry signs, write letters....write a thousand letters & make hundreds of copies for every politician we know. LOL. Maybe you can even hang the bastards in effigy and light them afire. That'll work. I know, how about holding up a bloody head of our President and post it for all the world to see? Ingenious idea. So funny, Kathy. Just not as funny as your melt-down in public as you have the outrageous audacity to claim you're being bullied and ruined. Look in the mirror Ms. Griffin. There's your enemy.

      Uh-huh, I know. It's freedom of speech. Yes, it is.

      We can also fight with anyone & everyone who has the slightest difference of opinion.....bully them, scorn them and disown friends and family? Let's just see how F---ing insane it can get?

      At this point, in the current frightening atmosphere, there's a realistic need for self-preservation. I know when I can tolerate no more. I'm painfully aware of my lack of power. I don't need a bomb set off under my butt to know I'm a little person against an enormous world of Political Conspirators with all the wealth and all the power. Also remember, they are corrupt. Can you be MORE corrupt? I know I can't nor do I wish to be.

      So yeah the people are smartening up for their own good. If we don't watch out for ourselves.......well, do I need to complete this sentence?

      I don't want to see or hear anymore lunacy for a while. I'm beyond sickened by it. I simply don't care what "they" are doing these days. We can only hope perhaps they wear themselves out and down to a frazzle...until they can't move a muscle, even to count their piles of money.

      I'm sorry this is so long, pop & Chiquita....I can actually go on for hours. I love you guys and respect your opinions....you know I do. I'm pretty easy-going & peaceful unless & until I'm pushed beyond my saturation point...Isn't this so for most human beings? Seems pretty damned normal to me. Thus, I hear you bill, loud & clear.

      There's something really profound about the term "Independent"....Not party loyal.....but person loyal. Funny thing, it's not just politicians....it every human being. If I love you, it has nothing to do with what SIDE your on. We all need to have a problem with the "Bat-$hit Crazies" who drive their Tanks over everyone attempting to CRUSH them into oblivion. We have them here, but they're everywhere & no matter where they are, they're intolerable. So, I just don't tolerate them. They sicken me & hurt my head. I prefer health & happiness.

      One more thing. Tony, next time you use comment space, try something useful on the TOPIC rather than spewing a nasty, unnecessary & childlike rant about someone else's point of view. You're so full of hate & toxins. Is that what your bible babble teaches you? I wish pop wouldn't allow posts like that, but it's her site. Just what does your drivel have to do with pop's hub? No wait, I'll tell you. NOTHING. So, thanks for nothing.

      Go after the Bat-$hit crazies with that lethal mouth of yours.....like leslie and Mad Man AP....or, if you have the balls, go head to head with Esoteric! Bill is NOT a Bat-$hit Crazy. You're just a coward bitching at a peaceful man. Jesus must love you Mr. Christian. Yeah, sure.
