Politics involvement is difficult and at times rewarding but introduces much disappointments and with that a lot of angst.
It has been awhile since I last posted. I had a bout of disillusionment clearly a problem that I alone had to solve. My funky state has now advanced to “mad as hell”. The source of the funk was feeling hoodwinked, manipulated by the Republican-Crap-O-Crat establishment aka RINO’s or here…Continue

Yes many of us learned not to stick our hand on a hot stove surface only after we did, received a burn and then we acquired common sense not to do that again.
