I am surprised that this would be any big deal at all in that part of Idaho. I thought it was almost expected there.

Well, now that this has made the national news superhighway, what could have been contained and dealt with locally will result in these incidents popping up all over the country this winter. Then I guess that we will need a federal law banning such dangerous snowmen, and we can all feel good about it. I'm not applauding the guy in any way, I do think that some people will overreact to it, and I do think that the guy has a right to express himself, even if it is unpopular or non-PC. Unless blood has been shed, he hasn't hurt anybody physically, and the social effect depends on your perspective. In this society, we have to learn to live with all kinds of bad people, no matter what race, origin, religion, or attitude.

I have a neighbor who I can't stand, and for good reason. It isn't because he puts controversial things in front of his house, he and his wife are just a couple if idiotic human beings who can't calmly and rationally discuss differences between people. So, to all of you utopians, what should I do about it?

There is a video on FOX news. His neighbors must have nothing else to do but watch this guy. They should mind their own.

What gives ??? snowman with something weird and somebody is offended ?? I have been offended by political signs for months and wish the remaining few would be removed. I saw some working folks ( used to be the middle class) and poor folks with sings for GOP, now they are really ticked off since the Unemployment is not extended. No such thing as fair is there ?

Sounds like he has the same spineless overly sensitive neighbors like me. What the heck id "offensive to the senses". His neighbors should mind their own business, if they don't like what they see, then look somewhere else. His property is his castle.
How about I place a tv outside in your yard and play pornography for your kids to see. Would you have a problem with it? I know you would but why? It's offensive to you but shouldn't you mind your own business? If you and your kids don't like what you see, then look elsewhere. It's my castle, isn't it?

See how ridiculous I sound? That's how you sound with that post?

First of all, stay off my yard because it's my property and trespassers could get hurt! Normmal kids would have just seen a snowman, but the adults around there CHOSE to explain what they saw the snowman as. Big difference between snowmen and porno, unless Mr. and Mrs. Frosty are out there doing eachother. Yes, you are ridiculous. Tell ya what you bring the porn and I'll make the popcorn, I love it.
