Trumpeting Trump

Lady is at the Table

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, September 11, 2017. Our sweet friend, Lady, is at the breakfast table this morning. She has prepared a bacon quiche lorraine for breakfast, and she has asked me to extend an invitation to all the Poppers. Lady is worried about all those impacted by this vicious hurricane season. Let's come together to thank those who have reached out to help their fellow Americans, and tell those that choose to criticize to keep their remarks to themselves. Now is not the time for anything but survival, concrete help and heartfelt prayers.


The Human Spirit

Thanks so much for coming to the table this morning. The past eight months have been marked by hideous division, hateful lies and violence. Perhaps Mother Nature couldn't take it anymore, because her wrath has been unleashed on parts of our country, bringing those impacted by storm to their knees humbled by nature's fury. When Harvey descended upon Houston and beyond, America rallied. Petty differences vanished, and all that remained was the need to reach out and help one another regardless of our skin color or party affiliations. We were just people trying to save ourselves, our loved ones and our neighbors. The line of people waiting to get into Houston and outlying areas was incredible. Boats of every kind were on trailers, manned by ordinary citizens wanting to help. The effort was gargantuan, well organized and it is still ongoing. In its wake, Irma has descended upon Florida and, as I write this, the damage is still ongoing. My thoughts and prayers go out to every single human being impacted by these storms. I do believe that the nation is focused on you, and you will not be forgotten.


No Magic Wand

There is no magic wand when it comes to dealing with these storms and the devastation they bring. What there is, however, is real help. President Trump has done a magnificent job bringing together all the parties charged with helping the victims of Harvey and Irma. He and his administration got ahead of the problem, and when it was necessary, they were prepared to act. The governors of the affected states were in constant contact with President Trump and his entire cabinet. FEMA was on the ball, corporations stepped up to the plate and individual citizens reached out with money, clothes and their own lives. This is who we are as a nation. There will always be people who will try to rip into this president every chance they get. They tried to by criticizing President Trump for not being 'Huggy" enough. They tore into the First Lady because she left the White House in stilettos. It doesn't get any stupider than this, and these fools should hold themselves in contempt.


Getting it Done

President Trump did something we haven't seen in a very long time. He reached across the aisle, in order to get things done in this country. Despite the fact that he was not supported by many Republicans in Washington, he chose to agree with the Democrats and suspend the debt ceiling for three months. The suspension means that the government can borrow what it needs to operate. The cost of these storms is going to be enormous, and our people need help. President Trump got things moving in a city strangled by divisiveness. He deserves credit for his efforts. I doubt that the future holds any "Kumbayah" moments in Washington, but the slight lull in all the mean spirited talk is a welcome relief.


Mountains to Climb

We have a long way to go in our country. Many of our citizens are going to need help putting their lives back together. We definitely need tax reform if we are going to get our country back to real prosperity. Our borders are better, but still vulnerable. We need that wall. We need to cut the red tape when it comes to helping our veterans, and we need to do it fast. The gridlock in Washington cannot continue. If deals have to be made, we need to make them. No one can do that better than our president.

Lady's Song

She longs for free fresh ideas in the air

She has no use for fools who don't care

That's why this Lady is no tramp.

      Good Morning Jason,

      Welcome to the breakfast table! I too believe the president is more of a centrist. The problem is that the media and the left are so extreme and vocal that the good he is accomplishing is getting obscured. I can't imagine what would have happened if crooked Hillary won. The thought makes me shiver.

      Well, breakfastpop, it's like this. A year ago when Louisiana suffered a flood, Donald J. Trump and his running mate, Mike Pence, were down in that state handing out food supplies to the disaster victims. However, Hillary Clinton and her running mate, Tim Kaine, were nowhere to be found. Something tells me that if Hillary Clinton had gotten elected president of our nation last November, she and Tim Kaine would have turned their backs on the survivors of the recent hurricanes here in our nation. Hillary Clinton cares more about her Clinton Foundation than she does about the American people, and Tim Kaine is the biggest bozo ever to go into politics. Tim Kaine even looks like one. (My sincere apologies to the real Bozo the Clown for using his name in vein to describe Tim Kaine.) President Trump and his wife, Melania, have shown themselves to be unselfish individuals through their helpful actions towards the recent survivors of Hurricane Harvey. It is good that President Trump is currently working across party lines to get things done. President Barack Obama just didn't have a knack for that when he was still in office, and his inability to do so was harmful to our country. I believe that it was votes from moderate Democrats like myself who secured the victory for Donald J. Trump in the last presidential election. In my opinion, he is a centrist, and that is the kind of president that our nation needs and has needed for a long time.

      Good Morning Lori,

      Normally, Americans tend to have short memory spans. I pray this is not the case. There are so many people who need our help, and we simply can't forget them. See you at the Inn.

      It is heartening that people came together. Billybuc wrote a great piece like this also. I just wish the devastating fires that are burning up millions of acres could get the same help. I realize we are greatly stretched. but at least the media could be more intentional about informing us about it so people can help them as well.

      Dear Bill,

      I agree, those who offered help and risked their own safety to help others are what is best about our nation. See you at the Inn.

      Dear Paula,

      It seems that those who intent upon tearing us apart are moved by nothing. They are empty vessels and they have nothing to offer. The great people who came to help those hurt by these storms are to be commended. They are our heroes, not politicians and not movie stars . I'll wait for you at the nn.

      Dear Tom,

      In the midst of all this angst and on this day of all days, it seems impossible, but you made me laugh. Thanks, I'll see you at the Inn.

      Good morning Lady, very well stated and I agree. A national tragedy once again brings out the true American spirit and on this day in particular when the world was shocked by planes intentionally flown into the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and one that crashed when American heroes died in an effort the thwart another major flight into a building to inflict as much death and carnage as possible and gave their lives in doing so. The road of recovery for the folks in Houston, New Orleans and most of the state of Florida will be difficult but I am so amazed to see the good people of our country joining hands and hearts to render help. We were reminded yesterday of the Bible story of the Good Samaritan and I pray we all can be "good American Samaritans." The devastation is great, I pray the ointment of healing is generously applied and our country wakes up to the fact we all need each other.

      Pop and Lady,

      Well said. I agree with your sentiments and observations. President Trump has rallied ALL resources to deal with these emergencies in the quickest manner possible.

      Despite the sentiments of renowned actress, climatologist and spiritual adviser Jennifer Lawrence, who opined that the storms were a divine punishment on the nation for electing a climate change opponent like President Trump, we will muddle on in our sin, ignorance, and degradation.

      Pop & Lady...There is no doubt, when the going gets tough, Americans get TOUGHER. This is proven time and again. My hope remains that one of these times, there'll be a massive "wake-up" where it's realized once and for all, how harmony & unity is the only way to succeed, go forward and soar!

      In short, Pres. Trump is the Hero, clearly showing up every past leader's reactions & efforts to national disasters. Let them continue to nit-pick and make total selfish, blind fools of themselves. All they accomplish is a reconfirmation of their ignorance & complete lack of concern for our country and fellow-Americans. Nothing new. We've always known of their self-absorbed lunacy. Will they never see how sick, pathetic and disgusting they are? Peace, Paula

      I will say this: America stepped up to help it's brothers and sisters in a time of need, and that was a heartwarming sight for sure. God bless this country.
