About the Circus of Life Blog

My little rant at the beginning of my blog is taking up too much space, so I decided to turn it into a post - About the Circus of Life Blog.

We are living at the circus in these United States of America, and possibly throughout the world.

A circus of loose lipped media, not-so-worthy politicians, religious fanatics and greedy corporations.

A media circus, a political circus, a religious potpourri of rules and judgements... a world where people hold on to beliefs without applying them with wisdom, compassion, logic or reason, where our prisons are full yet our streets are not safe, where our young people are violent and depressed.

We live in a country that is dependent on other countries even though it doesn't have to be.

Our politicians no longer represent "We The People."

Fanatical fundamentalist Christians decide on candidates (mostly) based on one issue instead of considering the welfare of ALL. I am a Christian also, but my duty as an American is to vote for the best candidate, not the best Christian.

Welcome to my blog where I rant and once in a while rave about topics and issues that cause me to stop and wonder what in the world is going on.

I am an independent voter, considering the character, integrity and platform of the individual candidate, because I feel that our major two party system of Republicans and Democrats no longer serves any purpose other than controlling its candidates representaing a select number of elitist partisans.

Since I cannot do anything about the circus, I blog about it.

Try blogging, it's great therapy!

Spitzer uses friend's name to register motel rooms

Poor Mr. Fox, Mr. George Fox that is, who is now known for renting motel rooms with hookers, and formerly Gov. Spitzer's friend.

I say formerly because it appears that the good governor was using his name (George Fox) to reserve motel rooms where he was meeting with his very expensive prostitute.

And another "great" politician bites the dust...

Mr. Spitzer was elected in a landslide in 2006, capitalizing on his popularity he won as the “Sheriff of Wall Street” during eight years as attorney general. With a reputation for personal probity and independence, he pledged to bring higher ethical standards to the statehouse.

The more good you do, the more evil tries to embrace you.

Beware, even democrats can fall prey.

Sad that his legacy will just be one of another hypocrite because his true character was one of just rising to the top of his game and not the integrity he falsely showed to the public.

Homemade Mosquito Repellent

The Zika virus carried by mosquitoes has become a hot topic and is the basis for many unwarranted fears for most people in the United States. While it is a dangerous virus that can be sexually transmitted (one reported in S.C.), here in the US, it only affects about 1000 people per year.

As of August 18, 2016, there are 34 known cases of Zika virus in South Carolina.

* So far president Obama has asked congress for $1.9 billion to help develop a Zika* The White House also is seeking flexibility to use some of its unspent funding for the Ebola crisis to respond to Zika or other infectious diseases.

Each state should also provide information. The link for South Carolina is, which provides useful information on symptoms, transmission and prevention.

How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad.

This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of which serve a great purpose - such as this one.

Then again, it wasn't that long ago that a movie star was elected president.

How are the rich and famous voting? I found endless resources for celebrity supporters of Hillary, but those supporting Trump are apparently not as vocal about their choice.
