Great article on why the Right is afraid of Hippies

A quote:
It comes down to simple physics. Negative begets negative. Positive begets positive. War begets war, peace begets peace, Britney begets Christina begets N'Sync begets People magazine begets "Joe Millionaire" begets 10 million Prozac prescriptions begets a billion dumbed-down mind-sets, embittered souls. In a nutshell.

and another:
That postcoital buzz? That post-party feel-good vibe? That genuine laughter? That gratuitously kind thing you did for that stranger? That celebration of your body and your sex and love and spirit in spite of mainstream religious puling and finger wagging? That deep meditative solitude? Bingo. That's the vibe you want. That's the vibe we all need. That's the vibration that makes all the difference.

Great article.

Reminds me of Kelly's Heroes, the only war movie I love to watch again and again...Donald Sutherland says, "What'd I tell you about those negative waves?"

Anyhow...thanks for posting this article. Loved it!...Joyce in the mts.

Hilary, you are against organic foods and trees?

Does that mean you prefer Cheese Doodles and asphalt?

LMAO.

ha ha ha ha ha haha

I am neither right nor left, just me. We need love in this world, and lots of it. I have walked into church before and people who don't know me, judge us as hippy liberals. I have been to AP meetings where people who don't know us hear we are Christians and think we are fundamentalists. People judge too quickly, I think.

I definately prefer trees and organic food but the thought of someone eating cheese doodles on hot asphalt cracks me up.

Peace mamas,
