... just to remind myself why I'm doing this ...

Depending on our personalities, the world can be a crowded place or a very lonely one. For those who seek comfort in numbers, there is no shortage of hangers on, but for those who avoid that circus, keeping thier own counsel can leave them feeling quite alone and disengaged from the mad place we call home. Life is a trade off and most of us choose how we live it.

For me, I'd rather work things out as best I can, using my own thoughts and feelings to sort things out.

In effect, they tend to shout down any contrarian views to their own and that simply renders that blog useless as a discussion forum, and brands it as a "support group" for the originator(s). What the hell's the point in that?

Being a single snowflake in a mountain of snow means I'm pretty much writing to myself and won't be getting much back, BUT, that might change some day if I keep at it. One thing for sure, it won't happen if I do nothing, so here goes!

First off, the Federal political scene is pulsating with suggestions of scandal and controversies galore, BUT ...
