    A vote for McBush will help US in these ecomonic times - Not

    When the ship runs aground, you blame the captain at the wheel. Not a captain who had the wheel in the past.

    Garage sales in Florida suck.

    You need to go to the ones in the Midwest. You can really get some great stuff that has been sitting around in someone's attic for years.

    I found a beautiful picture of McCain and Hoover golfing at the Presidential.:eusa_whistle:

    I heard in some places they are only allowing you to only have one a month or something like that. I will try to find something!

    As a liberal, how do you feel about such a thing?

    I would probably have to agree with it, otherwise it might go against some zoning law! There is a house I drive by on my to work and they look like they have a garage sale almost all the time and just leave the shit out the yard. And with the housing market the way it is I am sure it wouldn't help your neighbors home value!

    There's a big difference between just leaving your shit out for days, and having a garage sale more frequently than once a month.

    But you shouldn't need a law to enforce something that two mature neighbors ought to be able to handle between themselves. If you're selling your house, and your neighbor is being a slob, simply use a little diplomacy and kindly ask them to use a little more courtesy.

    A once a month garage sale law is ridiculous. Having frequent garage sales to rid yourself of unwanted items is easily distinguishable between trying to run some kind of shady, undocumented business in your own front yard. Sooner or later, it would become obvious to officials if you weren't merely getting rid of a finite amount of unwanted junk.
