This Is A Privately Circulated Blog, scribbled exclusively for Friends & Familiars, that peers into and pontificates about Expat life in the hinterlands of South America. If your eyesight is less than optimal (like mine), then just click the type size up a notch on your browser..

Here you will find a series of curmudgeonly commentaries that I've posted from atop my rickety old soapbox for the past few years. And yes, there are indeed political rantings, so place your seats in the upright position and fasten your seat belts .... it may be a bumpy ride.


And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, Slouching toward us … drawing nigh.

One can easily insert one or the other’s names of our hapless presidential contenders to the paraphrase of William Butler Yeats’ poem. Rough beasts indeed.

But this is an election that I will sit out, voting for neither one of these two would-be “leaders of the free world”. No matter who ‘wins’ this contest, at least half the citizens of North America are the losers. Not much of an election mandate is it?

I must admit that were I to cast my vote it would probably be for Donald J. Trump ... just to see all the professional politicians freak out in fear of what The Donald would do in the way of draining the swamp that is Washington, DC.
