    On my way out to the Hard Times Cafe in Manassas, I stopped by the few locations where another OCDO member had spotted some illegal "no firearms" signs.

    Since it is near where I spend most of my week, I had taken some pics a few months ago.

    Stopped by tonight (didn't have my good camera this time) to see if they had removed or changed the signs. One of them had the word "Firearms" covered over. The other two or three signs looked unchanged.

    I took two pics with my phone. I can't post these pics unfortunately but I'll see if I can make it back during the day with a better camera.

    Oh jeez. Now you are admitting to being in the vicinity of vandalized signs? That is known as "opportunity."

    We know you object to the signs' message about guns. That is known is "motive."

    As Prof. Duane says, "Motive + opportunity, wham, bam..."

    Nice knowing you, Nova.



    Oh, plus they'll have to investigate "spotlighting." You called them "off-road lights." Suuuuuuuuure. Is that what they call them these days?
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Nah I ain't too worried about it. Afterall, why would I vandalize signs that could possibly give me a good payout down the road? :P
    It has long been my opinion that I would rather see illegal signs corrected or removed than deal with a dragged out court session even if it means I'd get money. My time is worth more than anything I'd get in a settlement, at least at this point in my life.

    Where are these signs? Who posted them?

    It would not have occurred to me to measure them. Did you know that most people are the same height if they are lying down?

    You've always been down on liars, so your data on this one is unreliable.

    BTW, I woulda spelled it "height." Been at the Grand Mariner again? :P

    How can so,someone go through life and not see Electra Glide in Blue...And not know that line:shock:.

    It's a classic. Right up there with Vanishing Point, Billy Jack, Born Losers and To Kill a Mockingbird.

    I only have two crappy phone pics right now and I don't want to pay out the behind to send them to my email (since I don't have a data cord for this phone) so I'll try and go back during daylight hours with my camera for better pics. I'll be back in Fairfax tomorrow so I'll try and get some pics on my way home.
