When I was traveling thru Cuba, I
wanted to make a picture book of Cuban bus stops, they were so interesting,
sometimes colorful, unique.
When traveling thru the usa, I've
always wanted to make a picture book of billboards, they are so interesting,
absurd, and reflective of u.s.ofa. mentality.
Leaving and then re-entering Georgia
yesterday, I see a huge:
spread in Black letters across a
white background, and scrawled across the length of the bill board underneath
our nation: Take our country back
Passing thru an especially
industrial area of Nashville Tennessee, this is a kinda good one catches my eye:
girls on line?
Real men don’t
Although it should say “Buying girls
on line? Fuckin go to JAIL for LIFE!” Well, life might be too expensive, given
our jails are money makers for private corporations now. 25 years.
And now, leaving Freeport, Il, heading down a 2 lane 'highway' that runs north/south thru the state and will connect me with I80, I pass through a scattering of small 5-10 street towns with 550 people to a couple larger ones, maybe 2,245 people. These are the typical old towns I used to love to cautiously stop in - at yard sales, thrift shops, antique stores and hunt for treasures.
Today, just south on the outskirts of one such small town, I see this homemade huge billboard dominating the huger front yard, green grass brought to you by roundup I'm sure.
"Enemy's Like"???? Is that the like of the enemy? The Whites....hmmmm
