I was looking for a band by this name but I'll paste this here anyway:

I have always been an independent centrist rejecting political -isms.


I went though the music and drug scene in the 60s-70s. As I gt older I came to believe that for me it was an empty waste of time.

Culturally the elimination of the stigma of using drugs along with the promotion of drugs by the then counter-culture has led to our 'drug crisi' today.

Listen to the live rcording of the song Cocaine by Clapton with the crowd singing along. 'Cocain!!!'.

Take away the soical pressure against single woman parent and now we have a 'child day care crisis'. Mostly single women who can not afford day care.

What I learned with age is we reap what we sow, we are our own worse enemies.

I was an engineer. Knew many people who went through it and ende up mainstream with families and traditional jobs. Engineering tends to be conservative.

I think we've had that statement before, maybe not that exact tweet, and I need to remind y'all again that what's listed as "far left" is not a far left position outside of 'Murica, it's just "left".

("Far left" might be "we're going to exterminate the upper class / the capitalists". Which ... is still better than the far right.)

It's what you might call misobservational comedy. And as such, it sucks.

Listen to the lyrics of that song. It's not a party song, it's about being hooked.
