From a guy in Florida

My neighbor is a "lefty" of sorts, (Obama bumper stickers, gung-ho
socialized medicine, "guns should be banned", etc.). So this past spring 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. Maybe I'll ask him if he want to go deer hunting, which opens up November 1st, you know, just a bunch of guys running through the woods chasing Bambi, then sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows, drinking beer, and singing our favorite country songs to the accompaniment of Jake's harmonica (he is a better lawyer than a harmonica player but don't tell him I told you).
I even made him a bumper sticker and that made him madder than he already was!
Anyway, that's life in our neck of the woods, how's about yours?

    There is a term for people like your neighbor: "Zombie snack".

    people like him would be the ones to unintentionally start the apocalypse in the first place

    And it would probably be a scientist, not someone who has a lot of guns.

    i meant the neighbour actually, he'd be one of the first ones to go when it happens

    ...we should make a Sharenator Hall of fame and a Pit of Troll-ness. With a open-to-all members nomination and voting process. It'd help for listing all these people.
