And the sign said
“Anybody caught trespassin’
Will be shot on sight”
So I jumped on the fence and I yelled at the house
“Hey! What gives you the right
To put up a fence to keep me out
But to keep Mother Nature in?
If God was here, he’d tell you to your face
‘Man, you’re some kind of sinner’”
This song by the Five Man Electrical Band was a call to my generation. Remember that part about the long-haired freaky people who’d better not apply? Thank goodness we have overcome that idiotic custom. These days you can be just about as freaky as you want and certainly grow your hair out as long as you want as long as you can do your job. I finished the working part of my life with hair halfway down my back. True enough the owner offered me $1,600 to cut it short at one point (I laughed at him when he offered it) but that was about the only crap I ever took for it even after I dyed the tips black. I do whatever the hell I want and always have.
Back when “Signs” came out a lot of things were different sorta. Sure many of if not most of us smoked weed but it wasn’t illegal. Not even if you needed it for medicine. Today in many places it is legal and most places legal with a doctors note. Seriously it has to be the last day of the month and you have to run across a cop who’s a little light on his quota to get busted for pot anymore.
Can we admit that there are too many signs? Just like walls they block out the scenery and blow my mind. Imagine how much more pleasant a ride on the interstate would be without billboards and road signs. Do we even need road signs? These days every car and phone has GPS. Signs are completely unnecessary so let’s get rid of them and enrich our lives.
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
Do we need walls? Walls are worse than signs because they block out a whole lot more scenery. According to just about every actor, director, makeup artist, and crane grip in Hollywood walls do not work and are inhumane. Democrat representatives and patriotic American journalists confirm what these Hollywood professionals tell us. Either walls work or walls do not work and clearly not only do they not work but they are racist.
We can’t very well allow some groups or individuals to have walls while not allowing others to have walls. If they don’t work no one should be allowed to have a wall. If they are racist no one should be allowed to have a wall. Wanting a wall is stupid because they just don’t work. Walls are just an obnoxious extravagance to indirectly declare one’s superiority over others by exercising the power to block their neighbors view. That is just plain mean and should not be allowed.
I’m not just talking about the United States either. All walls are stupid and don’t work. We must petition the United Nations to outlaw walls on a global scale. A lot of these Hollywood people are Jewish so you know Israel would tear down their walls if asked to do so. The Vatican too would be eager to comply as you’ve heard what the Pope has said.
But one wall above all others must come down and that is The Great Wall of China even if we have to nuke it off the face of the planet. The “Great Wall” is a monument to wasted resources and oppression. It screws up the largest area of scenic mother nature than all of the other walls on the planet combined (in theory). It along with the pyramids must be destroyed as they were made by slavery. What purpose do pyramids serve anyway? Couldn’t all of that quarried stone be better utilized for housing for our unwashed fellow human beings and ease their suffering?
There should be no wall around America. There should be no walls around our homes or businesses. There should be no wall anywhere for any reason.
To get this ball rolling let’s all contact our favorite Hollywood personalities, politicians, and journalists and ask them to lead by example and remove all their walls. Do it because it is the right thing to do.
