A new America-hating, left wing, liberal catchphrase is born.
It’s not that big of a problem really. If the powers that be want the flag down, let them come and get it.....at their own peril.
Unless it is written in the HOA bylaws, “aesthetic harmony of the surrounding properties” ain’t got $h!+ to do with it.
This is the kind of crap the bullies who run homeowners associations pull all of the time, and not just as to flags. Hopefully, the 9-11 connection will stop them this time.
Just another reason I refused to purchase a house that was in a home owner’s association. I am not paying a boat load of money to any stinking association to tell me how to cut my grass, what color my house can be, what I can decorate my house with. I REFUSED to buy a cheaper house simply because it had a stinking association. I REFUSED a job in Washington state once because I was TOLD I would have to join the union of state employees and PAY for the right to be a member of that group. Just another socialist group that CONTROLS your every aspect of your life. FUNNY, I read once that this was a free country, won by free men, established by free men, a free republic. Guess I was wrong. Must have been reading about some other country.
Bring on the legal action. Suck the HOA dry, make them consider how much legal money should be spent going after a flag.
what about this?
Under the federal Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005, no condo, co-op, or homeowner association can restrict its owners from displaying the U.S. flag on their property.
Who would have thought that nation would have sunk to the level that flying our own flag would be grounds for getting in legal trouble?
And yes, I understand the whole POA situation.... But....
I could understand it if this guy had one of those jumbo 50ft. flags flying over the neighborhood - that it would cause consternation and trouble with neighbors. But that isn’t the case.
