    So I was informed by the neighborhood watch committee in my community a neighborhood watch sign was going to be put in front of my house in my lawn on a pole. Yeah, they all decided that. They figured they paid for it so they get to put it wherever they want I guess. Anyway, I told them no.

    So I phoned the city, they said they typically put it on a light pole. I said fine as I had one at the corner of my property. It went up. No issue. Today I go out to do yardwork and some asshole tore down a limb from my tree and wouldn't you know the sign is now more visible. It wasn't the garbage truck or the street sweeper guy and there was no and never was any fallen limb or leaves in the area of the break.
    So now my tree is misshapen and there's a tear going right down the tree. Fuckers. If my tree dies....... While I can't prove they did it; clearly someone ripped it down. I took pix.

    So come Monday I'll be calling the city and having them remove the sign.
    Asshole neighbors. They think we live in fucking East Oakland or something....sorry Havoc.

    If you earned $372,971 in income, then only that $1 dollar would be taxed at the higher rate vs. a guy who earned $372,970. The rich pay the same amount of taxes as the guys below them for each tier. Only their income above and beyond the highest bracket is taxed at the highest rate.

    A Neighborhood Watch Watch group is sorely needed.

    Call the neighborhood watch and maybe George Zimmerman will come out and lend you a hand
