Government is intransigent, and it doesn't react when you make fun of it. So all in all, it's not very entertaining. Hipsters, on the other hand, squeal every time that you poke them, so they're a lot of fun to ridicule. BTW, hipsters are just the latest name that we attach to what has been a persistent class of citizenry throughout history. Mostly young, mostly urbanite, more concerned with form than function, moderately to insanely narcissistic, highly conformist, and WTF is up with the hair? They will never go away, but they are a consistent source of humor, so I'm happy to have them around.I will never understand the hate people hold towards hipsters. If us pipe smokes put a quarter of the time into lobbying our government for better smoking rights as we spend complaining about hipsters, we would probably not be in the middle of this anti-smoking witch hunt that is happening.
I couldn't have said it better. But if they give any quarter on its evil status how could they justify it as a vice and therefore tax it excessively. We might get a little relief while they focus on the pot trade. Even more money there!And forget about lobbying government for change. That's like begging a virus not to infect you.
