Two Flaws Won’t Repair a Shattered Republic

Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into, the Lovely Lainey stated as she echoed the words of that great early American philosopher Oliver Hardy. We were walking out of the Cocoa, Florida Library last week after performing our sacred duty of voting in the next election. We weren’t certain of our schedules at that time so we both decided to vote early. The officials were very polite and courteous and the process was

Am I Deplorable or Irredeemable?

I hope you know what basket you’re in, because I’m not sure what basket I reside in. The Muckster is faced with a dilemma. I don’t know who I am. The politicians have left me clueless. Hopefully, this article will article will provide the answer. Hillary Rodham Clinton (HRC), the Democrat nominee for President made the following statement at a New York fundraiser Friday night, September 9th, with liberal donors and Barbra Streisand in the

Your Lyin’ Eyes (road trip!)

August is birthday month for my family and friends. Countless numbers of birthdays. Last weekend, the Lovely Lainey and I decided to drive to south Florida to celebrate the weekend with sister Joan who, guess what, had another birthday. I don’t ask the age of ladies because I don’t want them to lie to me. Nonetheless, on the drive south, I was riding shotgun and fiddlin’ with the radio. A talk show host caught our

Yes, we have no Solutions Today

I confess. The Muckster has fallen into the trap of candidate-watching on the tele. I am attempting to find a candidate, any candidate, that has a solution to anything. To date, I have failed miserably. Yes, we have no solutions today. When the Muckster was a youngster, there was a recording of a song called “Yes, we have no bananas today.”  There are loads of versions and bunches of accounts as to the origin of

The UK says FU to the EU and Cameron

This is the third article concerning the British Referendum to Bremain or Brexit. The purpose of these articles are to inform the readers of the costs and benefits of remaining (Bremain) or exiting (Brexit) the European Union. Compare this struggle to what is happening in America. Much of the background information was written in the first article: The votes have been cast and the people have spoken. The British citizens have wisely rejected the European

The UK plus the EU = PU

This is the second article concerning the British Referendum to Bremain or Brexit. The purpose of these articles are to inform the readers of the costs and benefits of remaining (Bremain) or exiting (Brexit) the European Union. Try to compare this to what is happening in America. Much of the background information was written in the first article: To EU or not EU, That is the Question The principle objectives of Brexit and Bremain are:

To EU or not EU, That is the Question

Are you all gaga about what is going on across the pond? Does anyone really care? I presume we should all be interested since America decided to leave the UK 240 years ago. Now the UK is having a referendum on whether to leave the EU, or stay. What impact does that have on the US after all of these years? In an all-out effort to bring you information you cannot receive from the Main

Can Hillary Trump Donald? Part 2

In Part I of this article, I described the presidential candidates and why they should be elected. In this article, I explain why they should not be elected. I then give my prediction of what will happen on November 8, 2016 and what will happen in 2017. Does the insider, Clinton and/or another Democrat to be named later have more clout than the outsiders, Trump or Sanders? What if the “RINOs” decide they want a

Can Hillary Trump Donald? Part I

People ask me, who will be the next president? I’m the only one who is not yet certain who the candidates will be. So why ask me? Well. I do have a few scenarios that seem to be gathering steam. Does the insider, Clinton and/or another Democrat to be named later have more clout than the outsiders, Trump or Sanders? What if the “RINOs” decide they want a different candidate than Trump? What if President

No Justice for “We the People”

The nomination of Chief Judge Merrick Garland by President Obama was sent to, and received by, the Senate on March 16, 2016. That’s two months ago, or about 60 days. The question is, should a sitting president in the last year of his elected term be allowed to nominate a candidate for the Supreme Court, or should “We the People” wait for the next/new President to make the nomination. President Obama has every right to nominate

Angry Bird or Screamin’ Meanie?

“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

2016 New Year Predictions: Foresight or Folly?

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.

The President’s Last Day

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

The President’s Second Day

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

The President’s First Day

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

My Culture: Right or Wrong

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

Media Plays Gotcha with Ben

Chuck Todd of NBC pushed the plunger on “Meet the Press” to detonate the media last Sunday when he asked Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson if he thinks Roe v. Wade. should be overturned. Dr. Carson said he would not support abortion under even controversial circumstances. Asked if he would make allowances for rape and incest, Ben said “no.” Dr. Carson went on to say, “During slavery, a lot of the slave owners thought that

IN THE NEWS: WE THE PEOPLE are suffering because some choose NOT TO VOTE!

This election is vital because it will include an aspect of voting that has not occurred in such magnitude in the past: Illegal immigrant voters. Any sane citizen of the US can see that with such an influx of illegal immigrants that are to a degree being tracked, those illegal immigrants will be tracked down by the Democratic Party and ushered to vote for the candidate that will allow them to stay. This could change
