hbk72777: A piece of paper that doesn't involve raising taxes.It'll be one of a kind
Generation_D: jake_lex: yukichigai: NowhereMon:My second choice would be a California Uber Alles single: [s.discogss.com image 149x150]Came to suggest this.I've never been able to figure out "California Uber Alles." Jerry Brown has never seemed like an authoritarian in any way to me, and Jello Biafra wrote that song as Ronald Reagan's Presidential campaign was getting up and running, and the right in general was on the rise. So he decides to take a poke at a very liberal Democrat. What am I missing here?That the nanny police state on the left was the same as the nanny police state on the right.Jello, a 20 year old recent arrival from Boulder CO, was noticing things like Harvey Milk's assassination, or various groups of aging california would-be liberals who were turning into yuppie conservatives who none the less still thought of themselves as liberals, yet who were quickly becoming douchey 80s yuppies.Made perfect sense to me.Jello hated all authority, but he hated authority that thought of itself as benevolent when in fact it wasn't the most.The idea that Brown would be a figurehead for enforced hippie values at gunpoint was just a silly idea, except it kind of could be believable. Turns out, he was right about enforcing Californian values, but wrong about what end of the political spectrum would be promoted. And a year later after California Uber Alles ... We've Got a Bigger Problem Now.// Drink up, happy hour is now enforced by law.
