    No it doesn't, but I would have been more swayed by his age. Leave the old man alone.

    Flags require flag poles. PERIOD.

    The HOA bastards can **** off and die. They are trumped by the law. They can like it and chew glass.

    They don't require vertical ones and if the HOA had the rules in place that prohibited them and the guy bought his house with the agreement that he would follow those rules, that's his own problem.

    Yet again, this is an example of someone entering a contract and AGREEING to follow the rules of the contract and then breaking them.

    Hey, I don't like speed limit laws, so if I were a CMOA recipient that should mean I don't have to follow any laws or contracts right?

    IMO HOA's should be illegal and anyone who is on the BOD of an HOA should be DOA.

    Yes. They can choose to not enforce the rule, and obviously are now, and should have from the beginning. Medal of Honor winners are few and far between. Less than 3500 in the history of the award, according to [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medal_of_Honor"]Wiki[/ame] (that should say 'Wiki' for the link name, I don't know why it's being changed by the website software ... ), and 1522 of those were for the Civil War! Beyond that, many times the Medal is bestowed posthumously ....


    The Homeowner's Association should be honored to have a Medal recipient in their neighborhood, and his advanced age should be cause for even more respect.

    This is the one of those situations were the law is on the side of the accuser, but they don't have to be a d*ck about it

    Did the old man win this one?

    I am glad to hear this, I heard this story on the radio, what this man has given to these spoiled brats, it really broke my heart.

    I am former military. A flag is NOT flying properly if it is not on a regulation flag pole.

    That is life. Deal with it.

    We know you're a right-wing pro-HOA person. It's ok. We forgive you.
