This is my second blog.

My first blog chronicled my experiences over three years caring for my dad as he lived through and finally died from Alzheimer's. That is the book that is for sale.

This second blog kind of chronicles of life, what it is like to start your life over in your late 50's. After caretaking, you are damaged, file bankruptcy, and the world doesn't care what you did. After 8 months of unemployment, you wake each day knowing the world doesn't want you. Finally you do find a job, 5 weeks before homelessness, but doing what you did 30 years ago and getting paid what you did 30 years ago. So this is starting over.

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

Boy, was that an exciting come from behind victory last night in Minnesota by Marco Rubio or what?  Rubio finally has won a state, little Spanky of the Grand Old Party Gang, recipient of all the GOP money, is now still in the game by taking Minnesota.

So bask in the glory of your victory Spanky, bask in the glory of being 1 and 15 in the voting and winning the only state that voted for Walter Mondale against Ronald Reagan in 1984.

A victory to be proud of.

I've said from the beginning, I don't trust Trump.  I did read something recently about Cruz I found interesting; a comment by Alan Dershowitz, great liberal legal mind and possible participant in those private flights to an island with young girls, who had Cruz as a student at Harvard Law and apparently Cruz held his own in debates and Alan said something to the effect that Cruz was the smartest student he'd ever taught.

But will Cruz keep his word?  Doubt it.  But Cruz is not a lightweight, like Obama, like Rubio.

I've heard rumors on some shows that Mitt Romney is going to get into the race is Rubio loses Florida.  Won't that be exciting, they guy that wussed out in the final two debates and somehow managed to lose to Obama, giving the guy a second term and being the only president to get re elected in a piss pour economy and he wants to run again?  That is who the money is going to go to?

Let's face it, the country is pissed off.  Sanders voters will not come out for Hillary, Trump voters will not come out for another republican candidate and I suspect conservative Bible thumping types will not vote for Trump.  But the fact that Sanders, Cruz and Trump are doing this well shows both sides of this nation are very very upset; as someone recently described, it's the equivalent of hiring one of those bastard divorce attorneys.

Be careful what you ask for.
