I'm Still Here

Yes, yes, I know I said I was going to post more often, but you didn't believe me, did you?  Really?

There are several reasons for my absence. I was in mourning for several close friends who died within weeks of each other. Then, I twisted my ankle and was in enough pain for a couple of weeks to keep me from being able to concentrate long enough to put a blog post together.  Then I had a birthday and that was depressing.  A friend kept asking me how old I was and another one sent me a card with a note saying, "We're on the downward slide." Who says that on a birthday card?

But, mainly I was just disgusted.  I love to rant and rave about politics - always have. There has always been someone to make fun of.  I had a blast making fun of Sarah Palin, for instance.

It used to be a challenge to find crazy people to mock, but, nowadays, there are just too many of them. Then, I realized that those people couldn't have managed to get elected without the full cooperation of an equally wacky electorate.  Then, I got alarmed. 

I'm still alarmed.  I'm trying to find someone halfway normal, so I can begin to calm down, but it isn't working.  The latest outrage is the congressman who wants to pass a law saying that a woman who is getting a divorce must  have the permission of the judge if she wants to go out on a date, or have sex with someone. 

What is happening to this country???????? Why can't we have some sanity among voters?  Where will it all end?   Am I just having a horrible dream? 

Stay tuned.

I have often had the thought with great fear and trepidation about majority rule. My sympathies for your losses.

It is VERY scary to think that so many people actually listen to, believe, and vote for the wackos. Not a good commentary on our society.

At least you don't have Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul as representatives of your state!! Arghhhhhh............

Ha, that divorce law has to have a personal reference for that congressman. Sure hope he isn't one of ours.
So sorry for the loss of your friends and hope your ankle is better.
