  • “The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the law of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.” – John Adams

    Private property has lost a lot of sacredness in the eyes of the Dallas City Council.

    An editorial published yesterday in the Dallas Morning News praised a recent decision by the city council to place new and tougher restrictions on convenient store and shop owners in the Texas city. The editorial mentions that a significant number of these stores have gone “to the extreme” with regard to copious amount of widow sign advertisements. As it states:

    “Fortunately, the Dallas City Council is calling a halt to this practice with new restrictions that limit what percentage of a building’s windows and facade can be obscured by signs. Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway proposed the idea, arguing that advertising gone awry has become an eyesore.”
