Welcome. If you are here today, you can tell your kids someday “I used to go to that Dirty Hippies blog before anyone knew about.” So welcome and here is our mission statement, such as it is – otherwise known as our new ‘About’ section
“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This blog is a collection of people of all ages, from all walks of life, from professors and students, from business executives to business students. But as diverse as we are, we are united by two core beliefs. First, we believe not only in our country, but in all people who call themselves Americans. We believe that this country, and all our citizens, are well worth working for, and fighting for. e will stand up and work together, for ourselves and for our children and for some contributors here, for their grandchildren. We also believe that to succeed in our mission, we need to help each other – so we support, help and work with each other, not against each other, for our common good.
So thanks for stopping by. Read, enjoy, contribute your comments and pass the site on. For more information, please drop us a line.
