I am so logical I wonder why everyone does not agree with me? After all I am right!
What got me started was the local police in Stanley, NC arrested a woman because she did not cut her grass. We have fine County ordinance that says grass CANNOT be allowed to grow more than 12 inches high. NOW I DON’T LIKE THAT!
Let me clarify, I love a lawn that is manicured, landscaped and fresh looking. My sister Shirl has always had a neat yard, landscaped and clean. My brother in law Sonny’s yard, although not landscaped, was always neat. I loved to enjoy at them both. I remember a person’s comment that had recently returned from Canada. They said, “I would swear that everyone up there has just mowed their lawn, painted their houses, and planted fresh flowers.” Looking back at the times I was there I agreed. Now that you know I think mowed lawns are neat I will continue.
IT AIN’T NONE OF THE GOVERNMENT’S BUSINESS HOW HIGH MY GRASS IS!!!! Grass produces Oxygen we all need it!!!!
The folks around the lady said her land was a health hazard. Now I honestly doubt that. A health hazard is ‘Three mile Island’. Toxic waste is a health hazard. I know many do not like snakes and rats, but they are a part of nature. A rat is nothing but a squirrel with less hair and a slick tail. If you don’t like rats, snakes do. They have to eat also.
The folks said they wanted the ordinances enforced. I don’t really think so. We have an ordinance saying you cannot have a chain link fence in public view from the street. We have an ordinance saying you cannot have a dog house past the rear line of your house. There is an ordinance saying you CANNOT have more than one storage building. NO PRIVACY fences allowed in your side yard. You cannot even park on your own grass. No 'inside' furniture on your porch,If you have a business your sign cannot be over 12 ft. high. IF you have a service station only three signs are allowed. To conform only the prices of the three grades of gasoline can be displayed. They cannot advertise a $15.99 oil change; they would be in for a ticket. There is an ordinance against pot holes, (for some reason,that one is ignored.)
Burn your trash? You could be shot! Hey the list goes on.
All I am saying is that I am a ‘property rights’ person. I get tired of someone thinking because they think a house is pretty painted pink, that everyone should have a pink house. I expect every council meeting to hear an ordinance against Butter pecan Ice cream, because they are all chocolate lovers. Now I have said it.
I ain’t mad at anyone, and this isn’t pointed at anyone, Just my OPINION. I am glad you can have an opinion without being locked up for it. WE can still be friends can’t we?
Having said all that life boils down to two questions:
Should I get a dog?
Or should we have children?
