The small West Texas town of Marfa is in a battle with an adult magazine over the use of Marfa to market their smut and sexism. The marketing vehicle is a large outdoor sign of the trademark logo for the adult magazine. It is claimed that the sign is "art."

The Texas Department of Transportation is in the process of deciding whether the sign is legal, given the general ban of outdoor advertising along the highways in the open spaces of Texas. This ban is one of the grand legacies of Lady Bird Johnson.

The good citizens of Marfa need the help of those Texans who honor the legacy of Mrs. Johnson. If the purveyors of smut and sexism can vitiate this legacy in a small West Texas town, what will become of the beautiful open roads of Texas that the work of Mrs. Johnson bequested to all Texans?

Please contact your state representative, state senator and the Texas Department of Transportation and demand that this sign be taken down. Please act to preserve Mrs. Johnson's legacy against its attack by the purveyors of smut and sexism under the guise of art.

Ms. Johnson and her late husband's legacy is full of the residue of vile deeds done in the name of power and influence. In addition to all of the murders and lives destroyed in Texas, let us not forget the thousands of lives, into the millions considering the consequences, of Johnson's drive to enrich his family and do the bidding of his sponsors and partners. The whore Lady Bird will need to have more than open highways and bluebonnets to hide the evil done by her greed.

I totally agree. What a sorry legacy the theiving and greedy Johnson family left this country. His Great Society and immigration laws placed us on the grand road to ruin. Any screwball idiot wanting to idolize Lady Turd is living in a haze.

I love Marfa! I was traveling through one time when I had to stop and pinch a loaf. The attendant handed me the key to the crapper without a fuss and even gave me a can of air freshener to spray when I was done shooting out my log. It was a lovely scent with a genuine Spring-like freshness. I'd definitely stop there again if I ever need to drop a deuce while on the road.

The Johnson's knew something about advertising.

Due to his cozy relationship with the head of the FCC, there was only one TV station in Austin until after LBJ left the Presidency.--his.

His views were literally free. Opposing views were not welcome.

Just like in here! Your views are free because they are essentially worthless. Everyone else's views are dismissed out of hand by your ignorance, racism and bigotry. So things haven't changed a whole hell of a lot, have they?

The only reason Lady Bird opposed outdoor advertising was because she did not control it.

Thanks. That means a lot coming from someone with the intellectual capacity of a chipmunk like you. You definitely know your acorns. Just remember only one at a time in your mouth - they're not like balls which I know you take both of at the same time.
