Great Activism!

I'd love to see an organization that goes around doing radical, eye catching things such as this. While many people will likely be offended, it will get some people to stop and think, and will certainly grab some headlines. It is a relatively low cost form of activism.

There is plenty of this kind of stuff on the internet, but I get the feeling a lot of "normal" people aren't exposed to these types of radical messages. I've seen a ton of great memes like this posted of Facebook over the past several months.

This story is already being covered in a number of more high profile places:

Billboard - Great Activism!

Yes, now I have been seeing it popping up all over the web news. I see Angel Clark submitted it as show prep as well.

A friend of mine who is great libertarian free-thinker pointed out how much better it would have been if it had shown Bush 43 instead of Holmes. And maybe made reference to how you pretty much never see war protesters anymore (except maybe in Keene :) since O'Bamma got in.

I believe this billboard is in Caldwell, ID, a very conservative even for Idaho. Vote the straight Repubican ticket, etc,

The Billboard activism concept is great! You can't often get someone to listen to FTL, but Like a bumper sticker, you can't help but read it. And if you are bored in traffic, you may even take some time to think about what the heck it means.

If you had a plan, you could have a related series of billboards walking the "normals" through some aspect of freedom philosophy, the readers get a new lesson every month after they have had time to research and contemplate and discuss the last one. I wonder how much it costs to do a "normal" sized Billboard and change the message every month or so.
