Grandview's Gestapo Saving Lives by Sign Removal
Do you ever wonder what the Gestapo did in their spare time. Having just witnessed Grandview's Gestapo, I have a good idea. I believe they went around Germany and removed garage sale signs from public easements. In the lovely city of Grandview MO, there is a budget for a neighborhood services truck to drive around town and remove sale signs that are 15 feet or less from the street. What a nobel profession to have. How does a city come about devising such laws. My theory is that some busy body attended the city council hearings and lobbyed to have this ordiance enacted. Meanwhile, the masses of citizens that disagree or could care less hardly even notice the ordinance until it is time for them to put up a sign, only to have it removed and disposed of. Did Jefferson have this in mind?
