    My aunt was an actual hippie in the actual '60s--who actually protested establishment wrongs and then worked to create social change. She's lived through TRULY bad stuff: the fights over civil rights & Vietnam; Nixon & Watergate; Reagan, etc. She's at the age where she deserves to enjoy a comfortable retirement, and she lives in a Blue state that will go safely to Obama.

    Guess what she's doing the next six months? Working her motherfucking ass off for the most progressive president who has ever graced the Oval Office in her lifetime: Barack Hussein Obama. Phonebanking. Traveling to neighboring states. Doing whatever is necessary. She knows the stakes.

    Real hippies are putting their boots on the ground for THEIR President. Wannabe poseurs are whining and moaning, texting & Tweeting their ahistorical, ill-informed BS complaints to each other via iPhones & iPads. When they should GTFU and focus on getting out the vote.

    Here endeth the rant.

    •  Oh absolutely likewise with most of my family! (7+ / 0-)

      My family is hippie as heck. Some here know them too. Well, yeah. They're with your aunt on that. My aunt was a hair-down-to-her-ass-gal in belbottoms in Israel and India. She's definitely working that ass off for the POTUS' reelection. My pop still is a hippie (old habits die hard). He's got a rainbow flag on his house and an Obama bumper sticker. My other aunt's a lesbian hippie from way back, a midwife at that. She posted about this on her FB and glowed with praise for the President. I know a LOT of hippies. They aren't here. And the ones I know, if they support a President at all (most don't), do seem to support Obama. A few of the younger ones had it out for Ron Paul because of the war stuff -- we didn't make it clear enough that he is a racist buffoon.
