Dear Occupiers

20111119-111841.jpgI was a Hippie back in the 60s but then I got a family, responsibilities and, well, I grew up. Had to because lives depended on me.

If you choose not to shoulder responsibilities, that’s a choice you can make. But don’t expect me to finance you or the results of your irresponsible actions. I’m taking care of me, my family, my city, county, state and country, and then humanity and life in general. In that order.

When people say, “It’s your life,” they’re not kidding. You can do what you want with your life, apply your rights any way you see fit as long as you don’t infringe on my rights to do the same.

Free speech is one of those rights but camping out in public areas and ruining them for the rest of us isn’t. Stop your abuse of public areas. We all get to use them and we all have to abide by the rules therein.

Your life is up to you. You can have cardboard – I’ll donate some – and starve under a bridge if you want to.

Come to think of it, I guess that says my attitude is still “Live and let live” which pretty much means I’m still a hippie, but a Libertarian hippie now.

It’s your life. Do as you wish. But if you infringe my rights, then me and mine are gonna stop you.

From one hippie to another.
