    If you fly a flag, I salute you. I proudly fly a flag! I think everybody should.

    I still do not understand why the HOA in question was so nasty to a bona fide hero.

    What was the reason given by the HOA as to why they were so "nasty"?
    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).

    The HOA claimed it was a violation of their guidelines; however, their guidelines did not contain anything about flagpoles. As such, the HOA clearly went out of their way to force themselves on a 90 year-old CMOH winner.

    It's just disturbing.

    I think what people are missing in Vader's postings here, is that he seems strongly against the HOA here. I applaud that. I think that HOA's are wholly UN American in nature, and although Vader rarely takes positions that I can get on board with, this seems not one of them, and my conservative bona fides are well known here and other places.

    I am glad that the HOA lost, and this man that deserves our respect was allowed to keep his flag.

    The HOA guidelines do NOT have to address flagpoles. I feel pretty confident that their guidelines are similar to those in my Virginia community. It says that NO one is to change the exterior of their house without prior approval from the HOA. HOAs can provide a list of acceptable changes that would not require prior approval. For example, exterior light fixtures. My association has a list of approved exterior light fixtures that do no need prior approval. However, if someone wants to deviate from the approved light fixture, he/she must seek prior approval.

    This guy never sought approval for his flag pole before he put it up, which was a violation of the rules. Period.

    Yes, they do, or the HOA has no right to complain. The law works both ways. If the HOA does not state that flagpoles are not allowed, it is logical to assume they are and that no approval is required.

    The HOA lost.... by backing down after their gimp lawyer got her ass handed to her by a US Senator.

    For the record, I am not now, nor have I ever been a left-winger. That is more reiche-wing rhetoric designed to attack those who are not reiche-wing supporters.

    The problem is however Navy.....you guys have very little understanding on what it means to be a true patriot. Patriotism is sooooo much more than waving a flag.
