I guess that is a matter of being 68 with poor mobility and little money, no car, etc. I live in an apartment complex where the assault and battery rate in a 3 mile diameter, per the police on line data base, is 1 in the last 3 years and where for most apartment complexes, within a 3 mile diameter run 1 to 2 per month. Yes, probably a reasonably good part of town and as many here are on SS like me, there is not much for rowdy parties as a life style although there clearly are a few who spend a fair amount of time drunk, although not disorderly.
Those of whom you complain are probably why the electorate is so susceptible to deception as limited information voters and ready to vote on a slogan basis without real thought as to the balance of reality. But even outside of this area, I do not personally know anyone like what you complain of, even among the poor, some that I know and more that I am aware of. I'm sure that they are out there. I just have no contact with them, fortunately. Part of being an old man before my time as I said. It is not wise for me to be an apparent or easy target. I don't do down well but do up much worse and have had to call my son to help me up off the floor before.
I'm not being condemnatory. Just calling it like I see it. Surely there must be social venues such as libraries, hobby groups, adult education programs and even church groups where there are other choices for social interaction? There are AA groups designed to support non alcoholic family members that emphasize social interaction and support. You could go and register voters. That used to involve 'chicks' who were into social action and women's lib, back in the 60s when I was in college and grad school. The Republicans are trying to disenfranchise people all over the country, especially if they are likely to vote Democrat so there is a need for this to counteract. You could join in the next Occupy action as part of the 99%. I gather that while there might be some joining in while drinking, but they are mostly a sober and serious lot, at least so is my impression. They try to put on disciplined and no violence demonstrations and would exclude drunk and disorderly if they could although there seem to have been some provocateurs, even provided by the local undercover police.
