The Madness March
The Lady is Bugged!
Lady is at the Table
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Sunday, January 28, 2018. Our sweet friend, Lady Bug, is at the table this morning. She has prepared a Cheesy Ham Scramble for our breakfast enjoyment. The Women's March on Washington has been weighing her down. She has asked me to extend an invitation to all the Poppers this morning. Please join Lady at the table. She needs to get a few things off her mind. We hope to see you soon.
Take That, Mr. President!
Thank you so much for joining me this morning. The Women's March on Washington has been on my mind ever since it took place. The event has been described as peaceful and even jubilant, but its focus was neither. The sight of women accompanied by their children marching in protest against our sitting president was ugly and hostile. I was especially sickened by the signs that were carried by young children referring to President Trump as a "tyrant", a "racist", and "un-American. The women and children should have been marching in support of women, but instead they zeroed in on a president who has accomplished more good in his first year than any other president in memory.
Lady Sings the Blues
I could almost hear Lady Liberty crying during the March. This should have been a moment to celebrate the contributions women have made to this country. This should have been a March that showed that American women are a force to be reckoned with. This should have been a March to show our daughters that they must stand tall and assert their rights for equal opportunity and pay. This should have been a March to tell young women everywhere that they are never to see themselves as prey at home or in the workplace. Instead this event was polarizing. The message the marchers were conveying was flawed, and frankly the ignorance propelling the March was embarrassing.
A Tug of War
The women who chose to participate in this ill-conceived event had, of course, every right to do so. We are a country that invites differences of opinion. Sadly, the views of women like myself will never be tolerated by this group. I wish that they could set aside their anger for a moment, and take a long, hard look at the facts. President Trump is a very effective leader. To deny his accomplishments is to prefer ignorance to knowledge. Our economy is booming. Black unemployment is at its lowest level in 17 years. Hispanic unemployment is down, as well. Companies are returning to the United States and jobs and opportunity are opening up all over the country, President Trump has scrapped all the nasty regulations that crippled small business. Instead he has invited innovation and expansion into the nation, and all of us, including the Marchers, will benefit. He has reformed our tax code, and put more money in our pockets. His poroposal for immigration reform is utterly brilliant and compassionate. He has restored our standing in the world. He has confirmed our allegiance to our allies, and he has taken impressive steps to stop wasting our money on countries that export terrorists and mistreat men, women and children. He is a straight shooter who works tirelessly for us, all of us. It might be worthwhile for some of you "Trump Haters" to take a breath and do a little research. The truth will set you free!
What are you so Afraid of?
I still don't understand the purpose of the March. If, in part, it was to vilify not only the president but his supporters, then it served no purpose at all. Are women with differing opinions less valuable than those who attended the March? From my perspective, the March was exclusive and as far away from diversity as it could get. There seemed to be a surprising shortage of black women marching. Perhaps they aren't as angry with President Trump as the women marching would like to believe.
Anger fueled the event, and because of that fact alone, the March failed to prove anything. The signs were filled with hate and some were vulgar. The rhetoric was the same. I am thankful that my daughters and grandchildren did not attend. There was nothing to be learned at the March, but it could have been a teachable moment. There is an abundance of fake news out there. Lies about this president abound, and conspiracies to unseat him are evident. In the coming days, we are going to learn about the behind the scenes players who are trying to destroy this man, his presidency and our future. How about a "March for Common Sense and Decency"? Now that's something this bug could wrap her arms around.
She likes the feel of truth in the air
She can't stand people who don't play fair
That's why this Lady is no tramp!
