A Sinister Sign Seizure

 The city of Bartow in Florida has ordered residents to remove "God Bless America" signs from their front lawns by Monday or allegedly pay fines. The signs violate a 13-year-old ordinance, the city says.

City of Bartow Code Enforcement has asked residents to remove the signs by Monday or pay a minimum fine of $25 a day, according to local Fox 13.

The First Baptist Church of Bartow distributed some 300 signs to residents after a Fourth of July celebration. And those who continue to display the signs in their lawns are shocked by the city's move.
"I personally feel if it were on a city right-of-way, they would have a right to remove it. But this is my yard that I'm paying the taxes on. It's my right," said another resident, Emmett Purvis.
