Ok look- this is a music site. I play, record & produce music of all kinds, for all sorts of reasons. Once in a while I MIGHT discuss issues from my tech career, day job. However the state of our politics and our economy are in such a state that once in a while I might have something to say in reaction to the very unsteady times we live in.
I am not here to vent about one political party vs. another or anything like that. I am primarily concerned with my (and frankly all of our) financial future which has been getting gloomy-er and gloomy-er every day since the dotcom bust. Whatever your political stance, please remember- when economies get so weak that they are close to a breaking point- the most historically used tool by all governments is to stir up a war to take everyone’s eye off the ball. This is exactly the same slight of hand that magicians and three card monty artists use to perform their tricks.
Chin’s up everybody. If all of this turbulence makes you uneasy- write a song about it and share it. Ciao for now- sg
