We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Heh. Cute in the abstract, probably not wise in the concrete. If anything actually happens involving a burglar and your neighbors house, or even your house, some nosy lawyer will come around and try to rob you even worse. And you can't shoot them. (well, you can, but they're probably not in season, and you'll get in trouble)
I would be kind and call 911 after the fact. Object lessons are always the best teachers.
I loove that sign! Brilliant! However, harsh reality does intrude, and I probably won't post one like it in my yard, since during the Unpleasantness of Hurricane Ike last year, my neighbors, cranky as they sometimes are, helped us to break up our fallen fences and get them out of our driveway, so that if we had to make emergency runs, like to a hospital, we could get our car out.
