Miss Marple said we are all alloted three score and ten years, and like Miss Marple I shall soon be overdrawn.
Now, having lived 70 years, I will use this blog to record my observations and try to answer the question, "Is the hokey-pokey really what it's all about?

MAINE’S GOVERNOR CALLS THE PRESIDENT A RACIST
I have often said on this
blog that people deserve the government they get, because they voted in the
asshole politicians that are deciding their future.
In retrospect, I couldn't be
more wrong. Sometimes, the process of
elections favors one unacceptable candidate over other more qualified.
This is the case with Maine’s governor Paul Le
In Maine’s last election there were two very
qualified candidates running: one running on the Democratic ticket and one on
the Independent. Then there was Paul Le
Page, a loud, obnoxious, successful but not to bright business man, running as
Unfortunately the Democratic
voters split their vote between their party and the Independent; and the ‘Working
Men Vote Republican’ idiots, the Chamber of Commerce and the easily enraged Tea
Party elected Paul Le Page.
PEP'E Le Page has an approval
rating of 39% across the state – the 39% that elected him. Meanwhile, the upcoming elections could be a
replay of the same debacle. The same
independent that ran last election has declared his intention to run
again. He is by far the most qualified,
but I am afraid the Democrats that always vote a straight ticket (which last
election included my wife and I) and Democrats that vote their conscience will
again split their vote.
There is a danger that we
could be in for another four years of PEP'E La Page.
