Gotta Love Texans

Gotta Love Those Texans !
From a guy in Austin, Texas:
My neighbor is a "lefty" of sorts (Obama bumper
stickers, gung-ho socialized medicine, "guns should
be banned", etc.). So this past spring I put this sign
up in my yard after one of his anti-gun rants at a
neighborhood cocktail party.
The sign wasn't up more than an hour before he
called the police and wanted them to make me take
down the sign. Fortunately, the officer politely
informed him that it was not their job to take such
action without a court order and that he had to file a
complaint "downtown" first, which would be reviewed
by the city attorney to see if it violated any city,
county, or state ordinances, which if there was a
violation a court order would be sent to the offending
party (me) to "remove the sign in seven days."
After several weeks he was informed that the sign
was legal and there was nothing the city could do,
which obviously made him madder.
I tried to smooth things over by inviting him to go
shooting with me and my friends at the hunt club
but that seemed to make him even more angry.
I am at a loss how to reconcile our long relationship
(notice I did not say friendship), any suggestions
would be welcome.
