We're all hippie potheads and don't do anything with our uneducated lives except watch TV and eat junk food while being tree hugging barefoot weirdos.
...always making us look like normal people and not lazy uneducated stoners.
The stereotypes of the past 70 years are falling apart but a good portion still seem to think they're accurate.
And then there's Joe Sixpac, model citizen, productive member of society, and he's known and loved the world over.
You'll not find him hiding out in the dark recesses because he's a social creature and man about town. You'll find Joe at sporting events, academic
events, and just about every social event in society and always on the list of Who's Who in the most prominent places. You will find him out and about
at night from the most exclusive clubs to sleaziest of dives, always on the highways and hopping from place to place spreading his good cheer. Good
ol' Joe, always begging you to stick around, keep the party alive, and have another for the road. Without Joe around for most people there just is no
nightlife other than going out to a movie once in awhile - you go out any day of the week and party with Joe or you stay at home and watch TV.
Joe makes his contribution to society in big ways. He pays loads of taxes, keeps our public servants employed, and makes sure our domestic and justice
institutions are hard at work. During a time in the earlier part of last century when Joe's name was muddied he proved he had friends everywhere and
many in the highest places where it counts. It was then that Joe also reached down to the depths of society and into criminal elements to offer them
rehabilitation and a livelihood so that they would have legitimate business interests and political influence when Joe's name was cleared once again.
Looking back though, we can now see that Joe had to point his finger at the innocent Pot Stoner in order to make himself look legit.
Joe is no great friend to the potheads. Sure, they are invited to Joe's parties if they want to join in his kind of fun, celebrate his events, and
leave their cerebral ruminations at home. Joe certainly doesn't want them mingling in his political circles or staging their own night time events.
Many potheads would like to get out and be sociable as well but would rather turn down the pitch a notch or two, and frankly many if not most of them
would really rather not have Joe Sixpac dropping in on their get-togethers. Many of the Stoners feel we could all be more productive if Joe would
maybe spend more time at home and less time trying to be in all places all the time. Joe is more and more exposing himself as a glad-handing gadabout
and an empty shell with a toothless smile.
A major paradigm shift could perhaps get our collective tax monies being used more productively and for better purposes. We may still be wanting a
nice way to chill down after a day's work but there are less potent and not so debilitating relaxants that are popular and finally getting their own
name cleared after decades of slander. We are indeed now passing into a new age and with some constructive intention we can make this a better and
more inclusive world for all and not just an elite and avaricious few.
