    Ralph, My neighbor is a "lefty" of sorts ( Obama bumper stickers,



    gung-ho socialized medicine , "guns should be banned ", etc.). *


    So last week I put this sign up in my yard after one of
    his anti-gun rants at a neighborhood cocktail party. *The sign
    wasn't up more than an hour before he called the police and
    wanted them to make me take down the sign. *Fortunately,
    the officer politely informed him that it was not their job to take
    such action without a court order and that he had to file a
    complaint "downtown" first, which would be reviewed by the
    city attorney to see if it violated any city, county, or state
    ordinances, which if there was a violation a court order would
    be sent to the offending party (me) to "remove the sign in seven days". *
    After several weeks he was informed that the sign was legal
    (by a quarter of an inch) and there was nothing the city could do,
    which obviously made him madder. *I tried to smooth things over
    by inviting him to go shooting with me and my friends at the hunt
    club but that seemed to make him even more angry. *I then asked
    him if he wanted to go to a Tea Party rally but again he declined my
    outreach efforts to bring about a better understanding between
    political and social opponents. I am at a loss how to reconcile our
    long relationship (notice I did not say friendship), any suggestions
    would be welcome.
    *
    Anyway, that's life in our neck of the woods, how's about yours? *
    *

    Funny, Yes... especially if there has been a long-standing 'friction' you've been unable to resolve through honest discourse.

    Too gossipy for me though, I don't feel the need to pillory neighbors, or draw attention to my own home. That sign is as much a declaration that your house is a prime target to rob once you leave.

    Playing the devil's advocate, I'd be hard pressed to deal politely with a neighbor who posted a sign on their house detailing the guns and small children inside my home.

    I have a neighbor like that (Very left) but believe it or not he likes guns. He (and his daughter) go shooting with me every chance they get.

    There are some left people here. My right nut sisters consider me a lefty, and they're probably correct by popular definition.

    Cool sign, but only asks for crackheads to wait until you are out and break in and try and steal some guns.
