    Wow Grace... That is a late date for a primary. Ours was in April. I actually registered as a "R" for the first time in years because there was guberantorial candidate I really liked. He lost. So, it will most likely be business as usual in PA. But on the bight side, they had a box on the form for "do not bug me" and so far, so good.

    It would be on the state Libertarian party to organize a primary. Get on your local's to make it happen.


    Any other states have primary's this late?

    Far back as I can remember, the primary has always been in August.

    I love the do not bug me thing, and I might just write it on my form. Lately, whenever I get a robocall, I call the candidate's office and politely request our number be removed from their data base. I also call the Party headquarters. Some candidates are better about it than others. I pretty much tell them if they really want me to consider voting for them, they will NOT call

    Well, maybe if he was FROM Nantucket ... but of course he was born in Brookline, has offices in Boston, Fall River and Springfield, MA - as well as Washington, DC. Boneheaded, sure - from Nantucket, no. Ask any Nantucket native - "Summer folks" are not real Nantucket people.

    1) He's not a Nantucket person. He doesn't make his living off of the ocean.

    2) This Yacht falls under the same heading as his brownstone in Bahstin. Complete and total disconnect with reality. He bought it, and decided he didn't like the fire hydrant in from of it, and had the City of Bastin move it at their expense.

    Just think, Sen. Kerry was almost our President!

    Well, finished my poem, actually it a limerick, my first.

    There once was a guy named puck
    who went for a ride in his truck
    got hopelessly stuck in the mire & muck
    and missed bringing home a big buck
    Just no luck, poor, poor puck

    The senator could "park" in Nantucket.
    When it came to taxes he said, "Forget it".
    He just cannot be trusted
    for non-paid taxes he was busted.

    Btw?

    For those puzzled how politicians get into power (and often stay there amidst the ruins), when their irrefutable track record is that they bankrupt govt at every level they "rule" over, every time they get into power, here is the answer.

    -----Lesson from an actual scientific experiment

    Start with a cage containing five monkeys. Inside the cage, hang a banana on a string and place a set of stairs under it. Before long, a monkey will go
    to the stairs and start to climb towards the banana.

    As soon as he touches the stairs, spray all the other monkeys with cold
    water. After a while, another monkey makes the attempt with same result,
    all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon, when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

    Now, put the cold water away. Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs.

    To his shock, all of the other monkeys attack him. After another attempt and
    attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs he will be assaulted.

    Next, remove another of the original five monkeys and replace it with a new
    one.

    The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm.

    Likewise, replace a third original monkey with a new one, then a fourth,
    then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs, he is
    attacked.

    Most of the monkeys that are beating him have no idea why they were not
    permitted to climb the stairs or why they are participating in the beating
    of the newest monkey. After replacing all of the original monkeys, none of
    the remaining monkeys have ever been sprayed with cold water.

    Nevertheless, No monkey ever again approaches the stairs to try for the
    banana.

    Why not?

    Because as far as they know that is the way it has always been done around
    here.

    And that, my fellow monkeys, is how politicians operate....

    THEREFORE, WE HAVE TO GET RID OF ALL THE INCUMBENT MONKEYS SO THERE WILL BE A NEW APPROACH TO GETTING THE BANANA'S

    Amen.
