Republican Gov. Ronald Reagan must’ve been horrified when young people turned away from revenue-generating heroin and opium to tasteless, colorless, odorless, harmless LSD – which was legal as sea salt at the time–in 1967.
It took three years of police beatings, infiltration and extortion for governments to change domicile flower children into individuals that were often a match for their own hired muscle. The news article tells the story:
Skippies – Tough Hippies – New Los Angeles Headache. LOS ANGELES – first beatniks, then hippies, and now Skippies. Laurel Canyon in a fashionable section of Los Angeles is home base for skippies, hippie -looking youths so named by Canyon residents for their reputation for skipping out on everything – EDUCATION, JOBS AND RENT.
Unlike their hippie look-alikes, the Skippies are described as harder, tougher than early flower children. And their appearance in Laurel Canyon has coincided, authorities say, with a sudden rise in the number of brushfires and burglaries and a burgeoning narcotics problem. [Sound familiar? After another 50 years of superstitious and violent prohibition laws, the same phenomenon has spread northward all the way through Portland to the Canadian border. Clearly California voters and the Federal Kleptocracy prefer this state of affairs to freedom and individual rights.]
All of California has been smoky with brushfires for years now, while looter politicians point to the hobgoblin of global warming as the evident culprit. Voters in California have alternated between the two halves of the looter kleptocracy these past 64 years, and wildfires have increased, litter is everywhere, and bands of violent ragamuffins take over entire boroughs and bankrupt the landlords now getting the initiation of force they voted for and deserve.
Might this be a good time to rethink these policies? Surely 64 years is a valid test of the Third Law of Politics:
For every initiation of force, there is unequal yet apposite reprisal force.
Austin Texas also enjoyed a hippie subculture at that same time. Kleptocracy governors John Connally, Adolph Briscoe and Bill Clements gleefully adopted shoot-first prohibitionism and competed with federal press gangs in the incarceration of victimless youths in prison cells and involuntary servitude in Southeast Asia. Right above the Lewiston Sun Article on coercion-hardened Skippies is an article on Women being bought and sold in Soviet Turkmenistan. See if this doesn’t remind you of Texas’ new Red Republican Wife-Beating and Girl-Bullying law:
Government Assails Bride Buying Still Practiced in Soviet. MOSCOW, AP –Yazbul Yagmureva was a champion cotton picker, a hero of Socialist labor, until her parents sold her in marriage. Her father got a nice sum of rubles, some sheep and cattle. Her husband said he wasn’t going to have his wife working on a cotton-picking collective, and Yazbul was “wrenched from her beloved labors” near Bayrim Ali.
“Was her song finished?” Asked the Communist Party organ Pravda. “No. Inspired by party appeals to fight against the old ways and remove obstacles from collective labor, Yazbul found the power to go back to work again and show her abilities.
“Now she heads a team of grape growers at another collective. Her team gets the highest yield, she is the mother of six and a candidate member of the Communist Party.” (link)
Republicans have spurned Libertarian ways and returned to their roots, so grimly portrayed by Harriett Beecher Stowe, when Red Republicans were the starry-eyed Christian Socialists transfixed by Uncle Tom’s Cabin and eager for their own place in The Kleptocracy. In 2021 bounty hunters, gun in hand, scour the Texas desert, scrubland and brush country in search of girls to bully, while male Supreme Court justices grin in amusement and the New Turkmenistani Associate Justice meekly abets their masculine dereliction.(link) After all… didn’t Texans get exactly what their majority voted for?
