How did I do it? I didn't watch any cable news or read any newspapers or browse any political/news websites.
Okay, so "solved" is a bit of a stretch. "Ignored" might be the proper term. It's just all so fucking complicated.
Cliff Maegden and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band would agree.

Well I woke this morning with a pain in my neck,
A pain in my heart and a pain in my chest,
I went to the good doctor and the good doctor said,
You gotta slow down your life or you're gonna be dead,
Cut out the struggle and strife,
It only complicates your life.
Well I cut down women I cut out booze,
I stopped ironing my shirts, cleaning my shoes,
I stopped going to work, reading the news,
I'm sitting twiddling my thumbs cos I got nothing to do,
To help uncomplicate my life,
Gotta stand and face it life is so complicated,
Ladi dah di dahdah, ladi dah di dah dah,
Got to get away from the complicated life son,
Life is overrated, life is complicated,
Must alleviate this, complicated life.
Like old Mother Hubbard
I got nothin' in the cupboard,
Got no dinner and I got no supper,
Holes in my shoes I got holes in my socks,
I can't go to work cos I can't get a job,
The bills are rising sky high,
It's such a complicated life,
Gotta stand and face it,
Life is so complicated.
