  •  One thing I remember about hippies....... (none)
    was when they marched against the Vietnam war, one of their chants was:

    "ho, ho, Ho Chi Minh, NLF is GONNA WIN!"

    Whenever I hear anyone wax nostalgic about hippies, I remember that and it just kinda makes me mad.

    That's just me though.

    •  Do you know very much about Ho Chi Minh? (none)
      Like the fact that he was educated in the US prior to WWII. Trained by the OSS (the precursor to the CIA) to fight the Japanese. After WWII ended, he then appealed to the US for aid in throwing the French out of his country. We turned him down and took the place of the French. Imagine if we had supported him vs the French. What an ally Vietnam would be right now.
