It's a little harder to laugh at the US murder/suicide rate, the STD and pregnancy rate in the youth (as punishment for `wayward' youth kept ignorant in the hard line support of religious based values from a century or two ago) or the human cost of there not being a Society Sponsored Health or Housing minimum standard guaranteed for every citizen of the society. These are social responsibilities even many much poorer Countries provide their citizenship as basic Human Rights.
Thank God for Jello Biafra, he helps restore our faith that not all hope is lost. We here also suffer the problems of our Corporate manipulated Media, diet, lifestyle etc trying to dumb us down to the same level of stupidity and we are embarrassed by our Government trying to follow America's immoralities against the wishes of the majority, so we are not ready to laugh too hard.
The further removed one is from it all the more it's harder to distinguish Western culture from the cultures it demonizes. I can hardly tell the difference between our `righteous god fearing societies' and China, Afghanistan or Iraq. We are no different and every innocent life in one of our countries is as worthy and valuable as any innocent life in any other part of the world, none of our values deserve any more respect or adherence than any other value which does not interfere with any other's right to the same. I daresay kids are safer going to school in Beirut than many of our societies. We also did nothing about Chile. (Their problem was they had Olive Oil, not crude oil.) We also do nothing about Tibet, if the 2008 Olympics were to be held in Iraq would we send a team? etc
This is a great listen and it's good to hear someone willing to go on the record speaking facts. Many will not be comfortable with passion and facts, two traits they will find here-this is normal when one isn't accustomed to hearing them. In Australia we live in the shadow of much of what Jello Biafra speaks, we are not blameless and suffer much of the same shame and small mindedness. Happily we can also learn the same lessons and ultimately hopefully we will all work towards a Community, Society, Country and World where everyone can be who they are freely if it doesn't interfere with anyone else's right to the same and even if we violently disagree, we would all still fight to the death for the other's right to be, feel and believe whatever they want. Let's mobilize, let's wage Peace on everyone who would stand in our way!!

I've noticed many "drop-outs" on this set, instances where the audio just drops-out during a word. I don't know if this is present on the original/master tapes, or if I just have a faluty pressing, but be aware that this exists on at least one copy.
Overall if you are looking for a tonic to the ills that surround us daily, a soothing balm to the constant stream of bullsh** coming at us from both the White House and the 'official' media... give this a spin or two. Listening to this might just convince you that you're NOT alone, and NOT insane.
