With an ailing economy in the era of prolific self-expression via a multitude of platforms, sometimes the best way to be heard is to grab some paper and a pen and put the message up on your own four wheels. This is what one San Fernando Valley resident seems to be fond of doing, as found byLAist Featured Photos pool contributor CookieDuster, who explains the sign-maker's most recent foray into their version of Twittering:

The neighbor is riled up enough again to post his first tailgate message since election day. A total lack of punctuation and a spelling mistake only adds to the charm. Now we can only guess what pushed him over the edge. Was it the recent Obama speech? Or, more likely, Cheney's retort that brought the magic markers out of the drawer again?

I salute him for having the balls to put his message out there. And this Memorial Day Holiday weekend is the perfect time to do it.

Hooray for freedom of speech. Freedom isn't free. But dictionaries are reasonably priced.

Or free, if you're so inclined to use an online version to look up "existance." Ahem.
