    That's not art. That's just a different type of gang symbol - just from a gang whose political views happen to correspond to yours. Defacing property, public or private, with something ugly like that reflects a lack of regard for one's land, not nationalism.

    Yes!

    You wanna end this crap? Find those Mexican murals, those folk-murals they do as in Mexico City to communicate history to people who can't read, find those offshoots that they spend weeks working on and then spray paint over these with a swastika. Make them fix, repaint, replace daily. Hey, no legal problems doing this since the pro-Mexican government has decriminalized graffiti. Go for it!

    Graffiti is like tattoos for walls. I don't like the looks of it but its a folk art. Graffiti means people are creating something.

    Well, the two poll options are far too broad. Most of the time grafitti is ugly and infact illegal, but in some places you will find grafitti approved by the government than can lighten up what would otherwise be a visually indistinct area.

    So, do witches have tattoos in your part of England?

    There is a gas station-convenience store on highway 5 which I visit when in the area. There are two restrooms which are unisex, handicap available, and so the doors lock. The toilets and toilet lid had years of scratched in and ballpoint pen graffiti, in this case Mexican gang logos. These are in crypto-Spanish and nobody understands them except other gang members. There are hundreds of these gang signs. The owers of the gas station are Indians and they don't care or want to piss anyone off, any Mexicans I mean. One day I brought my own black marker and wrote along to curved rim of the toilet lid when closed --Post Your Mexican Ph.D. Thesis Below.

    The next time I was there a new toilet seat and lid were in place with no graffiti on it.

    The only thing I like is lovers carving their names in stone or wood.
