Manny Brings Breakfast
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Sunday,, November 6, 2016. Our dear friend, Mantis Manny, is bringing in breakfast this morning. He has ordered, bagels, lox and cream cheese, and it should be delivered at any moment. Manny is too agitated to stand over a stove. Tuesday will decide our nation's fate for years to come. Manny needs to run a few things by all of you, so please join us this morning. I will prepare enough Bloody Marys to keep us busy all morning. We hope to see you soon.
A Tight and Crazy Race
Thanks so much for joining POP and me this morning. So much incredibly horrible information has emerged about Clinton that I wonder why we are even bothering to hold an official election. I now believe that a vote for this woman is an expression of either total ignorance or a complete breakdown of morals. Clinton should be finished in the eyes of the electorate, but sadly there are still loads of voters out there who have no idea who she is and what is at stake. Hillary loves two things in this world, one is power and the other is Hillary. She has committed more crimes than Al Capone, but not only is she still free, she is running for the highest office in the country. That alone speaks volumes about us as a nation, and it is a book I don't want to read. Whether you like Trump or not, a vote for Hillary is a vote against all we once stood for. Thanks to eight agonizing years under Obama, our country is broken and the world now views us with suspicious eyes. They have every right to feel that way. We lost our way and we let our allies down. We have a long road ahead of us if we are going to save our country, but nothing will ever improve if Clinton moves into the White House. I prefer a jail cell, but I am only one bug among many. The election is Tuesday, and we have so much left to do. The FBI needs to perform a miracle and dump all the info they have now. We can't afford any delays. WikiLeaks needs to go for broke and let it all hang out. Since our news outlets are state controlled, we need a Paul Revere in every town in every state to let voters know what is at stake. For the greatest nation in the world to be this uninformed, this oblivious, this indifferent and this disorganized is a complete embarrassment. We had better get as many ducks in a row as possible, but there are so many factors at work that I wonder if we will ever know the true outcome of this epic election.
Voting American Style
Just looking at the myriad ways we have of voting in this country makes me wonder how we got to be this stupid. We are a civilized nation. Shouldn't we have a consistent and civilized way of exercising our most important right? We should, but we don't. In the first place, we have far too many instances of voter fraud. Dead people are voting, imaginary people are voting and some people are voting many times in many states. The people aren't the only problem. The voting methods and machines are varied, and that is a huge problem. Some voters will go to the polls and use a method that involves optical scanning of paper ballot systems. Huh? Voters must choose a candidate by filling in an oval or filling in a box that will be scanned at a central location. Other lucky voters will use a direct recording electronic system. Using either a touchscreen, a pushbutton or a dial, votes are entered into a computer. The voter's choices are stored on a disk and added to the choices of other voters. Huh? Other voters will be using ballot marking devices. The choices are scanned but they don't go into a computer. Instead, the choices are indicated on a paper ballot which is then counted. Huh? Other voters will have the pleasure of using a punch card for recording their votes. They vote and place the card in a ballot box. Huh? Mechanical lever machines are no longer used in US elections, but they were my personal favorite. I enjoyed pushing the lever down. Last, but certainly not least, is the hand counted paper ballot. I think they use this method in third world nations with dictators. In our country 700 hundred year old workers manually count the votes! When it comes to verifying the vote, we really don't have a lot going for us.
For the Love of Country
Time is running out. We have a great deal of noise out there obscuring the real issues. We deserve better than a Clinton presidency. We need a breath of fresh air. We need a voice. We need to change things and make America great again. Trump says he'll do it, so I say let him try. God Bless America.....
The moment I wake up
Before I stretch my wings
I say a little prayer for America....

The Trump presidency has begun, and it is time to embrace this new beginning. For those of you out there who are infantile, mean spirited and devoid of common sense I say, "behave."
Fake News is sweeping the nation. Why not call it what it is, despicable reporting aimed at twisting minds and damaging reputations.
The insanity that is so prevalent these days is harming our nation. Peaceful protest is one thing, mud slinging, violence and betrayal is quite another.
