Hippies destroyed the country?
What country are you talking about?
Because all the countries being systematically destroyed right now, are being done so by greedy banker types and giant corporations.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but last I checked hippies don't support that kind of thing.
They destroyed this country in the 60s dude. With that 'sexual revolution' that introduced casual sex to the masses which in turn decreased the importance of love with sex. which in turn decreased the importance of the family.
You then had that abomination of a feminist movement crop up where every girl is expected to act like a slut to 'empower' her.
You then had violence and sex on TV and movies drastically increase.
YOU HIPPIES HAVE RUINED THIS COUNTRY!
when did the country start going down hill? the freakin 60s.
You and the freakin counterculture crap have set the path for destruction.

Damn glad to see those socialistic scumbags in CA are about to reap what they sow.
They deserve each and every ounce of pain they are about to experience.

More evidence of California's continuing downhill slide can be found in the state's pathetic welfare statistics:
1. The percentage of residents on welfare in the Golden State is now more than triple that of the rest of the U.S. If it reflected the rest of the country, California would have 800,000 fewer people receiving welfare.
2. While caseloads in the rest of the U.S. have dropped over 30% in the past five years, California’s has gone up about 6%.
3. As a result, though it has only about 12% of the total U.S. population, California’s share of the welfare caseload has risen from 22% in 2002 to over 30%.
4. There are more welfare recipients per family in California, and that number has crept upward in the past couple of years, perhaps indicating that California welfare mothers are bearing more children that those in the rest of the U.S.
