Winston Churchill is often misattributed to the quote "If you're not a liberal when you're 20, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative when you're 40, you have no head." I believe these words from Sir Churchill, a leading figure of Tom Brokaws Greatest Generation, quite ironically sum up the generation that was to succeed him in history (the baby-boomers), had he actually been the one to have said it of course.
The idealistic hippies of the 60s fought for change to bring about a society so open-minded it could accept everything and everyone, but now the Teabaggers of the Present fight against change to provide only for themselves and their own vision of the world.
From the path of young Communists to aging Objectivists, this group has essentially become a mix of the worst parts of their parents generation and the generation they were in their youth. They kept the passion of the 60s and combined it with the irrational fear of change from the 50s.

I have been saying that they are the conservative version of the hippie.
It’s funny watching the liberals complain about the protests when they in fact help pave the way for the modern protester.
I laugh. Ha. Ha.
Forget a “barf alert” warning there, FRiend?
Answer to the headline: No.
Are the child molesters in the administration the new secret police?
I certainly hope you are not discussing people involved in the Tea Party movement with the derogatory term “teabaggers”.
The Tea Parties are about the only protest where the grounds are cleaner when the leave than when they arrive. If you have a broken window they might even reglaze it for you before they're gone.
I believe she is.
The participants in the Tea Parties come from multiple generations. Had you actually been to one you'd know this.
It's "Sir Winston," by the way.
Two sentences in and it's already lost.

No - hippies are the shiftless scum who wanted to screw and smoke everything and anything, and not be held at all accountable for any actions. They are avowed communists and provided nothing but anarchy to this country. At least the “Tea Party” protestors have the wits about them to understand freedom and overtaxation.
Sorry but the pathetic attempt to sink the Tea Partiers to the level of hippies has failed epicly.
Where are the cat pictures? I see ZOT in the headline, I expect cat pictures.
The TEA rallies are focused.
They are clean. The people are clean.
They are free of violence or vandalism (except for disruptors).
Nobody is there “for the experience”. Attendees are either elderly (hard to get around) or have to take a day off of work. They are there because they don’t like the direction that the Federal and state governments are taking.
The hippies are running the federal government! Like the old SDS people, etc. They are Obama advisors now.
What do we have for our departing guest, Ed?
