7. I don't understand why towns/cities even have laws
prohibiting how long you can keep a political sign on your lawn. It is after all your property which you paid for, most likely costing a lot, plus home owners insurance, and yearly taxes on. But because of some nosey neighbor you have to be careful how long you leave your sign up or the police may pay you a visit. That is asinine.

I realize that many towns/cities have "visual nuisance" laws, but this should be about freedom of speech. And i wouldn't be surprised if the person who made the complaint wasn't a bigot who couldn't stand seeing the sign any further.

Thanks Newsjock for the information.
