McGinnis Bashing Must Stop

I hope and pray that editorial contributors of the Mirror are finished bashing State Representative John McGinnis of the 79th Legislative District. Truth be told, we should bow in reverence to the man and thank him unconditionally for bringing to light the true purpose of the hippie movement of the sixties.

Since my daughter returned from living in San Francisco, I've acquired a wealth of information about those hippies and their desire to launch the recycling movement. It's only a matter of time until some of their antics and the intent behind them, become public knowledge.

For instance, few people realize that under the corner of Haight-Ashbury Streets, the hippies have a fortified bunker, 10 stories deep, filled with recyclables as old as 50 years or more. The storage area is built to code, to withstand the earthquakes that are so prevalent on the west coast. You might ask - how did they afford to finance a secret bunker? According to secret FBI files, Janis Joplin and some guy named Bobby McGee left millions to fund the facility and its operation for years to come.

And the 4:20 movement on the high school and college campuses in the early 70's on the west coast had nothing to do with time or the date 4/20. Most sources indicate the numbers were affiliated with a meeting time for the hippies to smoke pot. Not true! - Instead, it was the going price ($4.20), for 25lbs of aluminum or 70lbs of glass, payable to those who brought in those precious items to have them recycled.

Yes, even the famous Woodstock Festival was only a front, fabricated by the hippie generation. Today, farmers, while tilling the land in those New York fields, occasionally uncover recyclables that were buried there by hippies back in mid-August, 1969. Both Jimi Hendrix and Timothy Leary funded that cover-up, and rumors abound that Jimmy Hoffa's body is buried there too. Apparently, he didn't believe in recycling and when the hippies did away with him, they knew the mob would be blamed.

John McGinnis – may people remember your grandiloquence for years to come - and we sincerely thank you.
