Manny Hosts the POPS

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, February 6, 2017. Our pious friend, Manny, will be hosting the return of the POP Awards. You are all invited to the gala affair. We will be serving lobster and king crab accompanied by champagne. Please put on your finest duds. Boas and high hats are perfect for the occasion. We hope to see you soon.

No Free Speech!

Thank you all for attending the awards. We have many "winners" scheduled so let's begin by welcoming a few "protestors" from UC Berkeley, an institution that used to champion free speech way back when. Apparently, free speech is only free when people like you decide who can say what. Dozens of you demonstrated such wild and disgusting behavior that a speech by right-wing Milo Yiannopoulos was cancelled over fears for public safety. Tell me, what course did you take that taught you to oppose free speech by vandalizing businesses and smashing in windows? Your parents must be so proud of you. The rest of us are disgusted by your vile actions, and would appreciate it if you would just go away. Please accept this POP and beat it. You have a lot more protesting to do, because the last thing you want is to see America be great again.

The Problem of Whiteness

Breakfastpoppers, please welcome a student from the University of Wisconsin-Madison to the podium. The school will be offering a class called "The Problem of Whiteness." The objectives are to teach students like you what it really means to be white. Your professor will attempt to help you understand how whiteness is socially constructed and experienced in order to help dismantle white supremacy. There will be an exploration of how white people consciously and unconsciously perpetuate institutional racism. The message will be loud and clear. Dismantling white supremacy is the responsibility of white people. The class will conclude at the end of the hour with someone volunteering to be punished for the sins of the white masses. Please take your award and sit down. Whatever tuition is being forked over to this school is a waste of money.

Shameful Student Assignment

Our next "winner" hails from beautiful and wealthy Westport, Connecticut. Your town sponsored a student essay contest and surprise, surprise, the topic was white privilege. The contest organizers were taken aback when some residents found the topic offensive. The suggestion by the contest promoters is that the town only welcomes wealthy white people. The truth is that the town welcomes anyone who can afford to live there no matter their race or ethnicity. This type of discussion is worthless. The fun part of this is that Westport is very, very liberal in their politics. Some residents were okay with the concept, but others see it for what it is, namely race-baiting. Here is your trophy. Take it back to Westport with the hope that the residents there will avoid feeling guilty about their success and the color of their skin. By the way, there are black rich people residing there as well!

Walk On By

Our last "winner" of the show represents students at St. Louis University. Please step up to the stage to receive your POP. It is our understanding that student protestors led by the SLU Rainbow Alliance and the Muslim Students' Association walked out on retired U.S. Army Lt. Colonel Allen West as he began a speech to discuss the threat of radical Islam. Apparently, Colonel West was not allowed to use the term "Radical Islam" to discuss radical Islam. On that idiotic note, I think it best that we conclude this event.

The rhetoric being tossed around by those in Congress, and those in our colleges and universities is shameful, distorted and dangerous. President Trump is trying very hard to fulfill his campaign promises. He won because of those promises. It is time for you to grow up, stop taking money to protest, stop trying to prevent this new administration from functioning and realize that the kind of nation you crave is not the America the rest of us love. I leave you with a song."

The moment I wake up

Before I stretch my wings

I say a prayer for you America

May freedom ring...


Crying over you...

      Good Evening Minnetonka,

      I feel sure we are now on the right path. Hillary and her husband are bad news for America, so I am thankful her campaign went up in flames. See you at the Inn.

      Good Evening maven,

      Sorry it took some time to answer but I went away for a few days. In any event, Trump's victory makes me smile, as well. I do think he has someone on his staff that is into leaking info to hurt him. I suggest he take a close look and stop the insanity. See you at the Inn.

      I am so excited that the POP awards are back!!!!! I have on my sexiest gown and boa. Now for the comments: When did exercising free speech mean that you can destroy property? What about Col. West's right to free speech?

      These children (and they are because they are acting like them) need to develop some manners. Listen to Col West, then disagree if you like, that is your right. I bet the parents paying for tuition at UC Berkeley will be upset if the tuition increases!

      I cannot eat lobster or crab, but no worries .... just leave an extra bottle of two of the champagne. And please sit me next to Maven101......

      Hi BPop-I had to come by and see how your feeling about this country. I pray that things start to settle down. I hold onto hope that we can all just get along.

      Good evening Pop and Manny...

      Plenty of fodder for Pop Awards...every day brings in a new crop...Alinsky's Rules for Radicals is required reading for this latest iteration of "students"...The fascist ideology of modern Progressives insists free speech is only for them, not for thee...The denigration of "Whiteness" reminds me of the Communist practice of self-criticism, a seeking of absolution from the group or commune...Rather than seeking to alleviate racism it encourages it...Insane

      Love lobster tail and Champagne...Dusting off the tails and top hat...Celebration !! TRUMP, TRUMP, TRUMP !!!! My last thought before going to sleep at night is of all the furrowed brows, the looks of consternation, the rivers of tears, and the shocked faces as Trump ate Hillary's lunch on November 8th 2016...I go to sleep with a smile on my face and joy in my heart...

      Good Morning lambservant,

      Colleges are a vast wasteland of bias, brainwashing and propaganda. We are now graduating robots who parrot their left wing professors. As for POP, I actually never made a big announcement, but I'll tell you. It stands for Pissed Off Patti! See you at the Inn.

      You answer to billybuc gave me a lol.

      I noticed you focused on our so called Education system - colleges and universities. Back in my day, when I went to college and even five or six years ago we learned reading writing arithmetic, history (revised of course), art, the sciences, anthropology, literature, philosophy, physical education and practical courses to learn a trade like computer science, software development etc. I do recall some weird classes about modern culture, but nothing so drastic as what you have described. I'm glad I don't have any kids in college. I wouldn't want to foot the bill for that junk they are teaching in your article. I can't even imagine what they feed the students in Political science.

      I've been following you for a few years now and I must have missed the memo. What does POP stand for?

      Pop and Manny,

      It's like seeing an old friend that you haven't seen for too long. The POPS are a welcome breath of fresh air and reality.

      PS: Once the POPS return can the PIPS be far behind?????

      Good Morning taxlarry,

      If the day ever comes when there are no "winners", it will be a great day for America. In the meantime, we have to take this garbage with a grain of salt. See you at the Inn.

      It is sad to see so many Americans that are anti-American. There are many out there who can't think or won't think. In addition to these idiots, we have judges and members of congress who show that they , too, are anti-American. In addition, they do note bide by the oath they took. All winners are very deserving

      Good Morning Mike,

      I feel the same way. Our only hope is that these crazies remain in the minority. Even better, it would be great if they just faded away. See you at the Inn.

      Good morning Pop and Manny,

      For once I have nothing to say. It is so sad to see things like this happening in our country, I have to wonder how we arrived at this place. We must have all been asleep at the wheel to let this happen.
