    Lesson:

    Don't buy a condo. Apartments are the same.

    I'd rather be in a trailer too. But not in a park. Same crappy rules.

    which is what causes me to find her someone who expects special privileges, likely because she thinks she is special
    if it is learned that she sought the board approval and was declined, despite the precedent of religious ornamentation, then i will rescind my castigation and will be in her corner

    If they allow crosses and wreaths, they should allow a mezuzah.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    but one she agreed to, just like posting in ME here. the rules are dumb but you agree to follow them when posting. she agreed to not place such objects on her property without board approval
    ... when the size and nature of the object in question is not obnoxious or overtly offensive in nature.
    and hopefully, that is how the board will see it when she makes that request of it
