    Hell no!

    There must be some kind of standards, but I think this is a matter solely for local governments to address in each community. The last thing I want to see is a string of bright, x-mas dildo's or something crazy like that.

    YES because they are the ones who make the payments on the home and will pay the light bill when it comes so those that hate the lights and yard decorations T.F.B.

    What people do on their property is their business unless you are in a communist, socialist or dictatorship where they control everything.

    Offensive how? Something obscene, then no. Something tacky? Grin and bear it. Religious? We still have our first amendment rights.

    It's not too hard to offend people these days. If you are not offended by something at least 3 times a day, there is something wrong with you.

    As long as it isn't obscene or doesn't violate any sort of statutes - yes.

    If we take away everything that *might* be offensive to others, we wouldn't have anything left.

    Yes, as long as it doesn't violate any local obscenity or other nuisance statutes.

    Not one dime of taxpayers' money should be spent to protect these people who purposely try to offend others.

    It's their property. The only exception would be those that chose to live in a HOA, they signed the contract - live with it.

    Many communities have already taken action. Lights, flags & religious symbols cannot be displayed if it offends.

    All it takes is one complaint like the one in Denver a few years back when a Muslim was offended by Christmas music at a retail mall. We must be PC according to the ACLU.

    As for me, it should be your right to do so but it won't happen.
