Unmarried couple or hippies?

I submitted this article to The Crazy Rants of Samantha Burns and it quickly sunk to the depths of page two. I may as well put it here as well. I don’t post as often as Sam does. 😉

Here’s a story about Black Jack, MO. Apparently, in Black Jack, you are not allowed to live in the same house with more than two other people that you are not related to through blood, marriage or adoption.

Olivia Shelltrack and Fondray Loving have been together for 13 years and have three children, ages 8, 10 and 15, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Living together for 13 years? 3 children? Hmmm, I wonder what the children’s names are … I’m betting on something like Sunflower, Patchouli and Garcia. This whole situation has the stink of hippies all over it.

‘This is about the definition of family, not if they`re married or not,’ Mayor Normal McCourt said. ‘It`s what cities do to maintain the housing and to hold down overcrowding.’

Mayor McCourt may be trying to be over politically correct by saying that. Let’s get it straight. Black Jack, Missouri is on to something here. It’s not about defining family, preventing crack houses or overcrowding, it’s about STOPPING HIPPIES plain and simple. Think about it, hippies congregate for a number of reasons:

  • smoking pot
  • free love
  • smoking pot
  • smoking something other than pot
  • stinking up the place
  • saving the whales
  • making babies with dumb names
  • and smoking pot

(You don’t think they went to all of those Greatful Dead concerts for the music do you?)

This law in Black Jack, MO prevents the hippie commune and by extension prevents the hippie!

I offer a proud salute to the board of adjustment in Black Jack, MO for helping to put an end to the hippie once and for all.

God bless you Black Jack.
