      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

43 years after the Summer of Love and hippies are STILL pissing people off.

 

Hippies come in two models: active and passive.

 

The active ones actually do stuff. Like all hippies, they have a good nose for freebies, but that's not the sum total of their existence.

 

The passive kind? Pretty much just white trash in a tie dye.

 

Still, if you ARE white trash, it's better for every else if you do nothing rather than something, cuz pretty much anything you touch turns to shit. The state should subsidize our white trash with free TVs, porn and malt liquor to promote this harm reduction oriented outcome.

 

I haven't read so much bullshit since I had perused the 1946 Western Stockmans quarterly report on manure disposal. Holy shit.

But he's right

White trash seek to bring the rest of the world down to their level of dysfunction.

 

The debt ceiling tantrum now provides them with a vehicle to do this for the entire country.

So hippies and rednecks are really just conservative and liberal arms of the same white trash? Brilliant, I've never thought of it like that. You should get a grant or something.

 

FREE MONEY ALL AROUND!

I could start a new forum for hippies. just come out of the closet with it.
Yeah, nix the Bacon Forum, the Hippie Forum would be way much more interesting. Cuz if money could just be free, then I would buy a bigger house and a SUV.

 

Yeah, even the telemartwats make bacon jokes all the time.

I went to one of these in 1971, or 2 in Colorado. Hitchhiked out there. Mom gave me five bucks, thinking I'd turn around. I was gone a month. We lived up there for a few weeks after the 20,000 people left, trying to sustain the dream.

 

I could write a book about that trip, so many cool things to experience at 17. But we were all so young, and so deluded about what it truly means to make a sustainable life for ourselves. Seeing it still going on now is strange. I guess teenagers never change.

 

It is true that xmas at jtree has the same vibe, though without the tipis, and the 5 mile hike up to a mountain meadow.
