The goal of the recent, sometimes-unruly protests over the election of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States of America is unclear. Is it to make President-elect Trump preemptively resign? Is it to ensure that he never takes office—by any means necessary? Is it to exercise the protesters’ self-defined right to vandalize the property of others?

Witnesses who tuned in to Donald Trump and Barack Obama's post-election get-together can't have missed the change in the president-elect's demeanor and affect.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz may be a Jewish girl from New York, but I'm guessing she's discovered what it's like to be Amish. Certainly she has a good idea of what a shunning is.

The Republican Party resembles the man who told his psychiatrist, "I have an identity problem, and so do I." The party's leader is at best indifferent to, and often is hostile to, much of the party's recent catechism: limited government, the rule of law, a restrained executive, fiscal probity, entitlement reforms, free trade, the general efficiency and equity of markets allocating wealth and opportunity, and -- this matters especially -- the importance of decorousness in political discourse.

Democrats are in trouble, but not for the reason you might think.

Let's face it, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has a history of interfering in party politics. She put her thumb on the scale in two races that we know of. Mrs. Buttinsky Wasserman Schultz tipped the scales in favor of Allison Tant in 2013, sending the Florida Democratic Party to wander the desert since. The party has been beaten like it stole something in every race that mattered. It is totally irrelevant at this point.

This column is a vehicle for a number of items in a bits-and-pieces, strictly opinion, sometimes irreverent format. Look for "Just Sayin'" to run once a week in this spot.

Donald Trump won fair and square and, as Hillary Clinton said in her concession speech, is owed an open mind and a chance to lead. It is therefore incumbent upon conservatives (like me) who have been highly critical of Trump to think through how to make a success of the coming years of Republican rule.

With the election in the rear view mirror, hype-happy Everglades Trust is doing its best to put a positive spin on what looks to me like a dud of an election-campaign stunt.

Rick Scott and Donald Trump
Donald Trump enters the presidency without ever having held public office--but a politician from Florida can offer a roadmap on how he can govern.

On Friday the nation honors Veterans Day, originally known as Armistice Day, to mark the end of World War I on Nov. 11, 1918.

Voters delivered a humiliating rebuke to America's political establishment and to the hangers-on — the pollsters, the pundits, the celebrities who surrounded Hillary Clinton, even as Donald Trump stood alone -- and especially the biggest hanger-on of all, the media elite. What an Election Day.

As many of you know from my past columns, I haven’t been a fan of Donald Trump. Regardless, I always said I would vote for him given the alternative, which was much, much worse.

You can feel the tension. Strolling down the street, shopping at the corner market, stopping for a bite at the local tavern, friends and neighbors greet each other as usual but avoid the elephant sauntering around like he owns the place.

Anyone who thinks the mail-in-ballot fiasco in Broward County is over either isn't looking hard enough or doesn't want to know.
