Hippies

Hippies.

They're annoying.

They're loud, militant, closed-minded, and they don't shower quite often enough.

You'll see them every so often out in front of some large corporate building, or some government-funded institution holding picket signs that say, "Free the Little People from Political Imprisonment" or "My Mother was a Blue Whale: Save her from Mabelline"

They're activists for things people stopped caring about around the time TiVo was invented. Frankly, I think what they're doing is a waste of energy that could be better spent being creative or genuinely helping those in need.

To be honest, I don't think any of them have ever met an actual dwarf. They simply saw a piece on Inside Edition and "became outraged" to the point that they went to Wal-Mart, purchased a 47¢ sheet of white posterboard, a $3.88 Magnum 44 Marker and grabbed a free paint stirrer from Housewares and scrawled a poorly-conceived slogan on it.

There are more important things to "become outraged" about. Gay marriage. Abortion. Embezzlement. Illegal Immigrants. Airline safety. Child Pornography. Merging without a turn signal. Taking semiautomatic firearms in for Show-and-Tell.

And sitting in front of a building with a sign isn't going to make these problems go away.

The only thing that's good for is getting a 20-second segment on the local news.

They're only capable of stating the obvious in a way that a 2nd grader can vaguely understand what goes on while he's in school.
