Don't Fence Me Out, Bro

Secret Service Plans to Raise White House Fence by 5 Feet


Before I built a wall I'd ask to know
What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offence.
Something there is that doesn't love a wall,
That wants it down. I could say "Elves" to him,
But it's not elves exactly, and I'd rather
He said it for himself.
-- Frost

Here endeth the lesson.

I want to ride to the ridge where the West commences
And gaze at the moon till I lose my senses
And I can't look at hobbles and I can't stand fences
Don't fence me in

Fences for me, but not for thee!

Giant electric generating windmills, great! But not within my view!

Don't use petroleum products, but flying in my private jet does not count!

Some of us are more equal than others.

I loved Roy. Always a gentleman, great role model for a kid growing up in the 50's
