If at first you don't suck seed, keep on sucking 'til you do suck seed.
--Curly Howard, The Three Stooges

Because --hey! -- history offers GREAT examples of walls that suck seeded, right?

Which is why we greet the news that the U.S. is now embarked on building a 3-mile-long, 12-foot-high concrete wall around a bunch of Sunnis in Baghdad with huzzahs and cheers. Way to go, boys! There's nothing like a concrete wall to memorialize ... complete and adject failure. Build it tall! Build it proud! Everybody needs to see how well we've done there.

This wall should compare favorably with another emblem of our collapse, the 680 miles of new fence on the U.S.-Mexican border, something Madam Virginia Foxx was pleased to promote, and the 403 miles of the Israeli "separation wall" in Palestine, another visible symbol of the success of apartheid all around the world.

All these walls will be lasting monuments to right-wing governments that talk "freedom" incessantly while doing what they can for the lack of, and perfect stationary canvases for graffiti artists to practice their craft.
