Making A Statement & Then Some...

     People never cease to fascinate me. They are unique, colorful and are constantly making a statement. Sometimes their statements are verbal. They articulate their spoken words to convey to others how they feel. At other times, they put their musings or theorizations to pen. They even make statements through hair color and styles, the clothes they wear, body art, places they shop even the vehicles they drive.

Making a Political Statement
     Yes, folks are continually making statements both verbal and non verbal. The freedom of speech we enjoy here in America is a wonderful thing; even if it is taken to an extreme...

Oh my goodness.  Talk about being opinionated.  This is so funny. Wow.  I have never seen anything like it before.  Thx for sharing.

Maybe soon this will be required. 

I bet my HOA would really have a fit if that was parked in my neighborhood!  Then two days after the car leaves the owner of the house it was parked in front of would get a letter telling them to remove it...

Michael - Thanks for this example of freedom of speech on a mobile bill board. Almost approaches visual littering but is funny anyway.

Morning Michael this brings back memories of my dad.  He had a vehicle and would make ti look like the one in your pictures except for the windows.  Those were the days

Michael, They're making so many statements that the messages are lost in all the confusion.  And somehow I suspect they're violating safety common sense with so little usable window space.

Michael, I can't see much of what this vehicle says but is any of it positive or encouraging? I only see negative statements. That's not how I want to be remembered. Whatever happened to the statement, "If you can't say somthing nice, don't say anything at all"? Although, I have been known on one or two occasions to speak my mind.

Michael,

I'm thinking the person is a little obsessive/compulsive, don't you think? I wonder how many other things he or she procrastinated over just to get this project done.

I can't help but wonder what Freud would say?
