To which America do you belong?
You kids don't remember 1969, I do. The country was extremely divided, and the best example I can point to are the two historical events of that summer: Woodstock and the moon landing. One America was wallowing in mud, while the other was reaching for the stars.

I see many similarities today. Which America do you want to be a part of?
So going to one of the most iconic music festivals of that time was a bad thing?

I have no interest in being a part of an America that looks down on people going to a music festival for fuckssake. Apparently you have no experience with those who are capable of having more than one thought at a time in their heads. I'm someone who can look at the old photographs of Woodstock & the moon landing and think they are both pretty fuckin' cool.

I belong to no America.
I never used to finish sentences but now....
Goddamn kids all hopped up on acid rolling around in the mud like a bunch of fools thinking they should have a say in anything. Nothing has changed.
I remember the hippies and I remember the moon landing. I got a cool penny from the moon landing and I remember the hippies were stinky lazy fuckers. 
You couldn't get a clue during the clue mating season in a field full of horny clues if you smeared your body with clue musk and did the clue mating dance.
There are a whole lot of people who can equally and simultaneously appreciate music festivals like Woodstock and technological achievements like the moon landing.

They're not mutually exclusive, and I don't see greater appreciation of one over the other as a sign of greater or lesser patriotism.

I belong in a country where freedom to enjoy either or both continues to be no problem; no need to limit choices or 'pick a side'.
Indeed. As the great songwriter William Joel once sang. Black and white used to be so easy for me.....Shades of grey wherever I go, the more I find out, the less that I know.
