Like a group of merry pranksters out to confuse and baffle the masses for some good laughs!

Like getting a group on one side of the street with signs that have red circles with an exclamation point, and having "counter protesters" on the other side of the street with signs that have green pentagons with an exclamation point. And the green pentagon crowd also having signs with red squares in a circle with a slash across it as in "no red squares!" Loonieness can be fun!

I have no clue, I was on the way back to the office the other day after a nice lunch when we ran into this group.

I'm guessing here .. You missed Fort Lauderdale in the 60's and 70's? LOL

You are probably correct though .. Most of us .. Grew up and then .. Moved away!

Dade hasn't gone red since the 1988 election, at least on a national level.

Broward and Dade are traditionally Democratic bastions but on a more moderate level - hardly the "crunchy" liberal mentality of Portland, Austin or even the "Triangle" area of N.C.

You can certainly meet some like minded liberal folks if you seek it out (i.e. Farmers Markets, those who send kids to Montessori schools, and tend to live more east).

Basically, is it anything similar to Austin, SF, Portland, Seattle there at all in culture?

Yes, there are all types of people in South Florida. Hippies are usually found at Whole Foods markets, coffee houses and kava bars. Counter culture types, you bet. Ultra libs, yup. political activists, yes. You need to check local free papers like New Times and City Link to find events and addresses for these places.

They're down the street from my house. They're making fun of the tea party who pickets that spot on the weekend.
