96. Um.... i really liked the 60's early 70's
yeah, really good music. (i was child of course)NO clear channel!! when the worst of all republicans was Nixon.

great TV. Freedom of speech. the civil rights movement the womans movement all came to pass. by 1970 we almost had Mariana legal. we were free. we had an awful war and being lied to by republicans yet again. but we had hope.

and most important we still had a free press. and brave reporters.

Watching what happened as Reagan took office and started his neo-con BS (who knew?)and ignored AIDS and the poor and then the Iran/contra mess. and de-regulation. that was it for us.

OK, i am glad to have gone through all those times in order to know that right now we are in serious trouble.

that we are in the fight of our lifetime. and many people my age and older remember the fight of the 60's and 70's and will fight right next to your generation to bring democracy back to this country. i was too young in the 60's to make a real difference but now i can help and i will.

what is happening right now is so frightening mostly because we have lost the media.

being alive no matter when is wonderful. the alternative kind of sucks. ya know?
