This is obviously dirty --- it is to get information.

Trying to get away from this person, but prob. gonna run into him on occasion.

WHAT do you call this?

Understandably NO the politics don't have much to do w/the initial issue.....I think it's a "periphery" thing....maybe I didn't talk about it sooner.

They are VERY aggressive about their political party & have always called anyone NOT democrat - an insane idiot.

(Back when we were friends) you could NOT walk outside without them getting you in a conversation that ultimately (quickly) went to Demo. stuff & trashed Repubs, etc. I think - after 18 yrs of them being my neighbors -I just can not take it anymore.

They've made it known --- up til recently - that we were the ONLY people they like in the neighborhood. (imagine it's diff. now - who knows WHAT the compulsive liar has told his parents....)

But -- I've just never met ANYONE who is so openly hateful of others.....part. due to poli. party. She's a mom - she can be nice -- she's in her 60s, I'd say --- -but I've just never known anyone so mom-like to just bitch 24/7, ok maybe 22/7. Just never known an "older" person to be so openly hateful - of most everyone. To outright call them names!

She knows we are Repubs --- (but actually not strong ones).....I have a lot of Demo beliefs too ---- and I'm sure I'm not insane.

Maybe I've gotten on to just plain venting here -----
but I tell ya what! --- 2011 has been quite a year -----
Family & neighbors have just been nothing but complaining all year. Just have to back away. Can't take it anymore.

FUNNY THING: This same lady got onto my Facebook & into a conversation w/one of my friends. She practically got into a fight w/my friend! I had to apologize to the friend behind the scenes.

Then lady goes: Come on over (to ME) & we'll have a bottle of wine - and I'll spend 2 hours telling you what such&such corporation has done to us!!!!!

I thought - Gee As enticing as that sounds - I think I'll pass!!!!

HAHA. Like I'd WANT to hear 2 more hours of aggressive bitching that would ultimately turn to Demo stuff. I'd rather undergo some horrific medical procedure than do that!!!!! (further interesting thing --- and this was the last contact I had w/her about 2 mos ago ----- is that I think she's offended b/c I don't want to make that date!)

Thanks for explaining.

I don't like it, either, when someone tries to push their politics down my throat.

Thanks JoJo, just performing a quick search, I found something from 2007 indicating that sex offenders here cannot live within 1000 miles of schools, childcare facilities or the victim.

Can you please explain what you meant by this statement and what it has to do with your neighbor's behavior?

You should have told his parents when it happened. It doesn't matter that you don't want to hurt their feelings or whatever.

<< I feel he would've THEN, now, or in the future "GET" my child. To tell the truth, my child is the ONLY witness! And I think he'd take it out ON her - now or whenever. To this day, he has no idea the real story: that my child was in here hiding AND it was she who squealed. >>

Way to teach her to hide, and not have anyone stand up for her, nor do the right thing, which would have been calling the cops.

I hope she doesn't grow up to be as afraid as you. Seriously.

Get a backbone

IF there is anything else, I WILL call the police. And I will ignore him from now on. Luckily, I virtually never see him anymore. I am around some days during the day and I see no evidence he's sneaking around my house during the day.

I just feel this is a tricky situation. I feel things would've been much more dangerous IF I'd called the police.

I feel he would've THEN, now, or in the future "GET" my child. To tell the truth, my child is the ONLY witness! And I think he'd take it out ON her - now or whenever. To this day, he has no idea the real story: that my child was in here hiding AND it was she who squealed.

I felt it was just toooo dangerous.

Almost wish NOW he WOULD come on my property so I COULD do something.

Whoever here said I could be encouraging him by even attempting to rationalize his words - maybe you're right@
