    Re: Oregon Apartment Complex Bans Flying the American Flag

    The landlord is obviously a moron. Unfortunately, on both sides of the political aisle there are people like this who make a bad name for the rest of the sane people out there who don't pull crap like this. Of course, the minority of idiots like this person grab headlines because it's shocking and outrageous and people enjoy sensationalism.

    Like Apartment buildings, you can be told what color you can paint your house...what trees you are allowed to plant, whether you can fly a flag....etc.
    You can't even park in your own damned driveway in many of these HOA's.
    Many places it's not a choice. You can't find anywhere in populated San Diego or Orange County that doesn't have an HOA. The new neighborhood down the street has $700/month HOA and Mellaroos fees on top of property taxes and mortgage. It's crazy.

    I can only choose from 4 colors to paint my house. Celebratory decorations (Flags, Christmas, Halloween, etc.) can only be so big and stay up for so long. I'd love to live in a HOA free community.

    That's sad. I guess I've always been lucky...I've never had to live in one of those oppressive communities. I fly my flag freely....park in my driveway....plant whatever tree I feel like....and I'm thinking about repainting my house and redoing my roof and won't have to get pre-approval from some neighborhood group!

    Strange, I would have thought you'd be thrilled to live in an HOA. You don't seem to mind the government telling everybody what to do, so what's the difference?

    Why would you think that?

    I'm all for the Government staying out of my bedroom, out of my house....etc.

    I have been against every attempt by the right-wing to expand Government into our personal lives.

    Without sensationalism this forum would be less interesting...

    Dealing with it is worth living here.

    We lived in a condo to a couple years when our "farm house " was being remodled and the land being subdived. The rules can be oppresive. Even during the short time I was there I got into a few fights with the nosey AHoles on the Borat of Directors and the Archetecture Review Committee. These people even had rules for how many stues one can have in their EXTERNAL EUA ( EXCLUSIVE USE AREA). The number and size of flags were restricted. You were only allowed to have sex with your wife ( or girl friend ) on Tuesday, Thursdays, & Friday. Ok I am lying about that rule your were allowed sex on Saturdays also.
