Yard Sign Controversy?

Pin it button
No matter who you are voting for this election, what do you think about political yard signs? The reason why we're asking is because the other day, one of our friends in Virginia was telling us how she received an anonymous letter in her mailbox that asked her to sign a petition that would restrict her neighborhood to display political signs in the yard. After fuming for a good half hour, she declared, "This just encourages me to exercise my freedom of speech and plaster my whole yard with Obama signs!" In other yard sign related news, a Pittsburgh couple had their yard sign defaced. The state trooper who handled the matter reportedly told them, "If there was no damage to any property, just the free campaign sign, it might not be classified as vandalism." This sparked another debate: What if it wasn't a campaign sign, but a holiday decoration? Wouldn't that be classified as vandalism?
