"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
I know how hard it is for you righties to accept defeat; however, you are beaten, your HOA buddies lost, and you are never going to get anywhere here.
Local law trumped the HOA. They lost ... so did you.
I am telling you... the HOA is wrong (as was proven by their loss in court) and so is American.
The far right is usually wrong on domestic matters, labor laws, and other such matters.
Anyone saying HAO's should be illegal is very ingnorant of their reasons for existance. I will certainly agree that some of the rules created by HOA's are too far reaching, such as the one in this post. However, HOA's fulfill a important legal position required by some neighborhoods. This legal position includes ownership of utilities owned by the neighborhood such as a road or maybe a sewer system. Without the HOA who would own these things if more than one household used them? HOA's are required for this reason.
Who cares what the law says? A Medal of Honor recipient wants to put up a flag pole. So what? Why does the HOA have to be so anal?
Secondly, it is FORSEEABLE because when he bought the house, HE KNEW THE RULES. Also, they didn't losem in court, they backed down.
You are flat out WRONG.

Local law ALLOWS THE FLAGPOLE AND THE FLAG. You righties need to give up. You are wrong, the HOA was wrong, and ALL OF YOU LOST.
The right-nazi HOA cocksuckers got owned like the 2 dollar whores they are.
