I'm part hippy. They are cousins.

Like most "liberal" sites, we share a lot of common concerns. And like many liberals, "they" are unaware that we are an oppositional force within what they perceive as "conservativism". We tend to get lumped into the evil bucket.

However, when we cross post stuff we agree with, we tend to drive traffic and the people getting that traffic tend to notice. Consider it diplomacy. We send a message to the people that decide what their readers read and when they see we share some of the same interests....

we break out of the bucket.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.
