Once AGAIN The RRR Returns!
The River Rat Ranger at last writes after months. Youngest Daughter explained to me that if I keep waiting to blog until I have formulated all my catching up, I will never blog again. She is right, of course. So I am blogging again. The present is what matters. For right now, the US is fixated on the recent Swing To The Left evidenced by the mid term elections. My Asian readers may be scratching their heads in confusion over our incomprehensible politics. What does it all mean?
Nothing. That is right... nothing. Because of our odd system whereby our Lower House has re-elections every two years and the Upper House every six, divided into thirds and the presidential every 4 with a two term limit. Is this confusing enough? But the last 2 year election of an 8 year presidential cycle almost always results just like yesterdays. And means almost nothing.
