    What is our country coming to. To deny a 90 yr old man his pride in his flag. A war veteran that fought for us all to remain free...
    Ooh, i WISH i lived closer to that poor man. I'd be like the 60's hippies and tie myself to the flag pole.. [​IMG]

    I would be embarrassed to be a part of this HOA. When you regulate American Pride, its time to pack it up....

    I live in VA and plan to follow this story. I bet that the HOA gets enough flack that they give up and go home....home to the houses that they have in land that this man risked his life to give them....

    Oh I am flaming mad... [​IMG]

    Many of us, are becoming self important, tyrannical, America hating Pr----s. This really is sad, first, that they would make such a stupid rule, and second that they wouldn't forego it, for this old patriot.

    Quote:95% for letting him keep it
    5% for making him remove it

    I will refrain from describing who I think was in the 5%... [​IMG]

    I am not trying to be rude but what did he expect? Those HOA's are like very the worst!!!! We had a lady who's son was in Iraq so she had a sign up, they fined her and took her to court! People actually were paying her fines for her! They had a cap on the fine and she never took it down! GOOD FOR HER~

    AND THIS IS WHY I WILL NOT BUY IN A HOA!!!!!
