Senseless Symbolism

May 31, 2021

As an observationalist
Just when you think
You have seen it all
………along comes a
.
Vanity license plate
.
With the rectangular
Representation of a
“Don’t Tread On Me”
Yellow background flag
Coiled snake foreground
.
This had me guffawing
All the way to the
Dictionary definitions
Of IRONY
.
Also, when it was
Originally flown…..1775
.
Too which
.
“The tread in Gadsden’s defiant phrase, don’t tread on me, means “to step, walk, or trample so as to press, crush, or injure something.” And so, with its tongue flicked, fangs out, and body coiled in defense, the rattlesnake (and motto) warns: “If you dare put your foot down on me, I will strike.”
.
– Dictionary.com.
.
Here’s the ironic part
.
It is used by various groups
(I say groups because
Individuals do not need flags)
To “symbolize” their “feelings”
Of “oppression” from….get this
.
Governments exercising “tyranny”
.
Collecting too many taxes or
That maybe “THEY” through
Convoluted language “might”
“Maybe” take their guns away
.
Perhaps those license plate
Purchasers ought check with
Who they are paying extra “fees”
(Euphemism for taxes) ha ha he he
.
Oh yeah, the bogeyman government
.
Well, if it is voluntary
It’s not really a tax…….besides
.
It “expresses” how that person
“Feels” about their “oppressors”
.
Though they are technically
Funding their would be oppressor
.
Are you still giggling…..I am
.
Maybe instead of using a
Timber Rattlesnake ready to strike
They could use a more accurate one
.
Perhaps the Ouroboros one
.
One that literally feeds on itself
.
Wait this gets even better
.
In light of its usage to combat
People’s fear their unregistered
Or registered toy guns
Will get taken away………
.
Most “state” license plates are
Made by……prisoners who have
Had their “right” to own guns
…………..Taken away
.
I guess that is why they are called
.
“Vanity” plates
.
“Vanity: something that is vain, empty, or valueless”
.
– M-W.com
.
“Just an observation,
Maybe I need
Different glasses.”
.
– Angelo Devlin
