Today, it costs about $75 bucks to go to the pound and get a cat. A woman
can get just about any man she wants at the corner bar for the cost of one
drink, and 99% of men choose a cheap draft beer as their complimentary adult
beverage. Average cost, less than two bucks.
Based on your logic, it's OK for someone to pull up in front of your house
and send a few bullets through your living room window while your kids are
playing in there. The shooter's not the problem. It's your problem. You're
really fussy about the safety of your kids, so you should install
You're correct in that senses of right/wrong differ. Furthermore, there are
differing interests to be balanced.
That's why things that affect the community as a whole, are decided by the

Otherwise known as noise ordinances.
I'd like to talk for 5 minutes with any ***LIAR*** who says they love it
when the neighbor's dog wakes them up 2 hours earlier than the alarm clock
is set for, and does this every night for two weeks. Anyone who says they'd

Put on some gloves, slip over in the dead of night, undo their chains,
and open the gate. They are barking because they are BORED. Better a

Abusive is when an owner lets the dog bark for 24 hours and does nothing

antifreeze is a plausible alternative to end the abuse of several parties.
The owner's fault? How do you reason with an idiot? (Not you, the owner.)
One of these will work.
I had a neighbor that I went round and round for a year. He was a retired
policeman, so thought rules were for other people. "Animal Control" was a
joke. The police referred us to Animal Control.
I bought one of these and mounted it on a pole on my truck, and parked it on
the street facing his house. The barking ended in one night. I left it on
for a few more nights, and the dogs barked once in a while, but only a
couple of barks instead of the 12 hour woof woof woof of a pedigree Lab.
