America has been blessed with countless heroes, many of which served in our Armed Forces to defend our freedom, liberty and our Constitution. Thank heavens, American females have stepped up to play important roles as well. While politicians are attempting to convince the American public that women are underpaid, overworked and unappreciated, I must vehemently disagree, as women in America also disagree. American women are strong, responsible, self-reliant and no, they do not see themselves
Do You Add Value to America? Your humble correspondent is often asked to write articles for newspaper and magazines, print and online, from time to time. I wrote an article for the Florida Times-Union for a holiday edition. It was an edited selection from 20/20: A Clear Vision for America to explain how Americans can and must find common ground and to learn how to live and work together as one. I was limited to
While watching TV, and reading the hype about the great lovefest of the last eight years, I decided to examine the major issues to determine the real facts. I’ll present those in my next article, although I’m believe we know them all by now. I’m confident this will not be a well-received article by some, but hey, the story is straight from the self-centered mouth. Outgoing President Barak Obama, the US 44th president gave his
Colonial printers held a rare position in the history of American printing. Printers in Great Britain had a legal monopoly on most printed material, such as the English-language Bible, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and all maps. American printers were limited to producing newspapers, almanacs, sermons, addresses, pamphlets, primers and other lesser items. Most colonial printers had additional businesses. They ran book stores, dry-goods stores and some were postmasters as well. Printers were editors, publishers, and distributors who
July, 1776 was a critical month in the history of the United States. The American Revolution was little more than a civil war. The Continental Army was outnumbered three to one by the British and their German mercenaries. The British Navy dominated the high seas, cutting off supplies and arms. America sought support both domestically and internationally. The Continental Congress met in Philadelphia to draft a declaration of independence which would clearly state the reasons
“Why am I losing friends so fast? I always thought I was a nice guy.” I seem to have this problem when I meet women. The Muckster did it again this week. This time at an informal condo association dinner. I should have known from the Christmas Party (December 31, 2015 Article) to keep my mouth shut. Here’s how it all unfolded. One of the ladies, Gloria, at the long dinner table at El Charro’s
In stunning fashion today, an anonymous source was overheard stating the administration was making plans to disband the United States Marine Corps. The high-ranking official was heard to say this is unfinished business left over from the Truman and Carter Administrations, among others, who tried in vain to break up the United States Marine Corps. This reminded one when in 2010 the Washington Post quoted an Obama administration official as saying, We have better operational

It’s that time again. Making resolutions and making predictions. My 2016 resolution is to expose all politicians and all media blowhards for the frauds they are. That was easy. The Muckster has spoken. Now the hard part. What will happen in 2016? Do I have the mucking foresight to forecast the future, or am I as foolish as all of the rest of the prognosticators? Check back on December 31, 2016 to find the answers.
I recently attended a Christmas Party and had the typical questions put before me. “Who are you voting for to be our next president, or some such variation.” I then give my standard answer. “I have not seen any one candidate that has exhibited the type of leadership I see as required to lead this great republic; and I have not heard one candidate elaborate a vision or a plan as extensive or brilliant as
Now that you know what the new president has accomplished on the first day, you may wonder who perpetuated the myth of the “first one hundred days in office.” What a joke. First 100 days. Get real. Get to work. As the new president, I will read the Presidential Daily Brief (PDB). This is a highly secret document that only I and handful of top advisors will see and then attend the daily meeting during
What should the president do on the first day in office? Walk in a parade? Give a Speech? Attend innumerable banquets and parties? How about this for a novel way to start the new job. Go to work! New presidents have a transition team. I guess there is a lot to transition with such a large unwieldly government to take over. Here’s another novel idea. Streamline the government. The backbone of the country’s broken. We’re
The politicians and the media have their panties in a bunch. They don’t know how to destroy the outspoken Donald. While many may not think Trump will be nominated for the presidency, or they may not like the manner in which he speaks, he is certainly resonating across America, what most of us think of as the “Real America.” Let’s face it. The media doesn’t speak for “We the People.” They have no clue how
