I would tell them molon labe. But then Im just a cranky old curmudgeon.
>>>People dont really understand that flag. Its nothing to do with police, said Kennedy. Its police that have been killed. The meaning of the flag is to support police that have been killed. Not police that are active right now working.<<<
What a whiny bitch this guy is. Man up buddy. He Supports Dead Police but not Live Police? WTH is that about?
With friends like this guy, who needs enemies?
Most HOA’s fold like a cheap suit when threatened with legal action. Hire an attorney and send them a nice note. Let them know you’ll be filing a suit against not only the HOA, but each member of the Board as well. See how fast the ‘Karens’ backtrack.
Why buy a house with an HOA?
The Karen’s that live there literally have nothing better than to bitch about someone not conforming to the rules.
Rules that they ALL are aware of.
For the life of me, I cannot understand why anyone would buy a house that comes with a homeowners association. I’d live 50 miles from where I work before I’d ever do that.
Never, ever buy a house subject to a homeowners association, EVER.
when people are either crowded together (like rats) in cramped multi-tenant buildings or in such “managed” tract developments, they almost always are subject to the dictates of an “homeowners association” -— sort of like a Communist Cuba Block Cell Enforcement Bureau.
of course, in most such places some sort of manager is needed to collect contributions towards common maintenance and repairs of common facilities plus insurance on same, etc.
A solution for many people is simply avoid moving into places with HOA’s
in reality some are managed quite well and some are managed quite poorly or in a dictatorial/fascist manner.
either way, its yet another level of “government” or dictats against the individual, and it must be noted an extremely close-by authoritarian office, too
we had a good friend who was served with foreclosure documents on his condo over a $25 fine that the HOA claimed was overdue them
again, when there are many common facilities and some other times too, some sort of association can be needed. I realize this and that some are well managed. But if the wrong sort of folks get in charge of an HOA, they can make your life very difficult, just saying
I refuse to ever live in a place that has a homeowners association
Well, the HOA flag rule works both ways. Ours allows only US, state and POW flags. Im pretty good with that. Sorry, but Im pretty sure he was aware of the rule when he bought in.
HOAs are communism.
If you don’t want to be subject to this kind of BS, don’t live in a place subject to HOA. It’s not that hard, HOAs are completely voluntary associations.
Where in the HOA bylaws does it say if ONE person complains, you must comply? Is there a list of approved flags? Is it up to date? Who approved the flags? Is there a published list of non-approved flags?
If I complain about someone's rainbow flag, are you gonna make them take it down? I kinda' doubt it...
If the HOA also prohibits (B)elligerent (L)oud (M)orons flags, the the HOA has a point. If they don’t and enforce the “rules” unequally, then the homeowner has a point. If you don’t like HOAs (and as a current board VP I do less and less) then don’t buy a house in one.
The very concept is disgusting.
Excellent reason not live in a HOA or restricted development. But if I did move into one I would expect the rules to unforced so that the Rainbow flag would be take down as well.
It sounds whiny to move into the place and then cry foul when you cant have your way. Same for boats and RVs. If it is important to park your land yacht in your driveway move somewhere it isnt zoned out.
Seven yrs ago the Board at my South Fla condo building made the mistake of not paying attention to the ballot. I got the last of 7 spots. I spent the next yr watching them steal and torture people. The next yr I got a slaye together & kicked them out.We are a happy lot today
Never, ever live in a home that falls under an HOA.
Guy moves into HOA with agreed to flag rules in place and signs off on them. Later decides he's special and flies the [insert flag nomenclature here] flag anyway - HOA says it's against the rules he, and everyone else, agreed to.
I forgot the part where half of FR - the moronic half which doesn't understand property rights - just blames the HOA anyway.
