    Sorry but nothing in the post supports your claim they lost legally. They backed down, but they did not lose legally.

    Maybe you should actually read the article instead of just posting sophomoric one liners about righties and Nazis.

    Again, they did NOT prohibit him from flying the flag as you were claiming.

    You're right. He has stopped addressing our arguments and instead has gone on and simply repeated what we have already disproved. What can ya' do?

    And again, they were not prohibiting the flying of the flag, only the vertical pole. The guy was still able to fly his flag on a 45 degree angle pole, so again, YOU ARE WRONG (see again I can use caps like you).

    A point you CONSISTANTLY keep ignoring.

    They backed down because of bad publicity, like a boycott. Exactly how it should have been handled.

    No, they are not mostly the same, but please keep telling yourself that.

    No, you didn't.

    He has every right to fly his flag and the assholes in the HOA can **** off.

    He is entitled to fly to the flag in any manner he so desires. As a veteran, it's logical that he would mount it on a proper flagpole.

    To start with, a flagpole is not an eyesore. It shows a veteran resides therein. Next, the owner of the home is a Medal of Honor recipient. He's earned the right to fly whatever kind of flag he desires.

    Next, we have all of the latent support for HOA nazism. Why? Why are you people supporting a group of nazis?

    As to your contention that you are slightly liberal; no matter what is said you are still mostly conservative.

    WRONG.

    Federal Law is against them. He has the right to fly a flag in any fashion he so desires.

    When they told him he could not fly his flag on the vertical pole they challenged his right to fly a flag. In so doing they DID violate federal law.

    Moreover, according to the original article, Decorated Veteran, 90, Fights to Raise Flag in His Yard - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News - FOXNews.com, states clearly that the veteran in question and his family found no provision barring flagpoles. As such, should the matter have come before a court of law, the Sussex County Asshole Association has no case.

    You republicans can continue to rally behind the nazi HOA if you wish. They were wrong and YOU are wrong.

    It's just sad that you support the HOA that willingly harassed a 90 year-old CMOH recipient.

    Re: Virginia Veteran Wins Battle to Keep His Flagpole in Yard

    For all of you pro-HOA people, here is a letter from a UNITED STATES SENATOR which CLEARLY STATES that his research found that the HOA guidelines in question did not specifically prohibit flagpoles.

    Here is a letter from a U.S. Senator which expresses my point:

    Karen S. Peterson
    Attorney-at-Law
    Coates & Davenport, P.C.
    5206 Markel Road, Suite 200
    Richmond VA 23230


    Dear Ms. Peterson:
    I have been made aware of a situation involving a dispute between your client, the Sussex Square Homeowners Association in Henrico County, Virginia, and a homeowner, Van Barfoot, a retired Army Colonel. It is my understanding that Col. Barfoot installed a flagpole in the yard of his home for purposes of displaying the American flag and that the Homeowners Association is now requiring him to remove this flag pole under threat of legal action. I have been informed that the covenants governing this neighborhood association do not expressly forbid installation of flag poles and that the association opposed the flag pole on the grounds of its aesthetics.

    I am mindful that the Association is a private entity, and I respect its right to regulate such matters. At the same time, as you are aware, Col. Barfoot served this country with great distinction, and I am very disturbed by the treatment that he received as he attempted to honor our nation by flying the American flag in the front yard of his home.



    The Medal of Honor is the highest military decoration awarded by the United States government. It is bestowed on a member of the United States armed forces who distinguishes himself “conspicuously by gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty.” As a fellow combat veteran, I hope you and the Association will consider the exceptional nature of Col. Barfoot’s service when considering his pride and determination in honoring our flag.


    I am pleased to join with many area citizens in expressing my concern over the action taken by the Sussex Square Homeowners Association.


    Since it appears that Col. Barfoot’s request was denied based on subjective criteria as opposed to an explicit regulatory violation of the covenants governing the Homeowner’s Association, I would hope that your clients would exercise the discretion afforded to them to develop a reasonable resolution that would allow this distinguished combat veteran to honor our nation in a manner in keeping with the established traditions, customs and regulations governing the display of the flag of the United States of America.


    Sincerely,
    Jim Webb
    United States Senator


    AS SUCH ... THE HOA DID BREAK THE LAW I PREVIOUSLY OUTLINED AND THE LAW IS, WAS, AND MOST CERTAINLY CONTINUES TO BE AGAINST THEM.

    ALL OF YOU ARE WRONG. DEAL WITH IT.

    Nazism does not mean what you're using it to mean. Please stop skull-****ing the english language, kthxbye.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).
