    Virginia Veteran Wins Battle to Keep His Flagpole in Yard

    Hoist your colors, sir! You earned it! Drive on!

    RICHMOND, Va. A 90-year-old Medal of Honor recipient can keep his 21-foot flagpole in his front yard after a homeowner's association dropped its request to remove it, a spokesman for Democratic Virginia Sen. Mark Warner said Tuesday.

    One of the main reasons I hate homeowner associations. I was lucky enough to move in to my house just as the homeowners association where I lived was disbanded.

    Glad he won!

    I'm glad he won too, but covenants are covenants.

    Yeah, but if they get too strict the people of the HOA should be allowed to revolt.

    HOA are ridiculous. I refuse to live in a neighborhood that tells me what color I can paint my house, what trees I'm allowed to plant...or whether I can have a flag pole in my yard.

    It is obvious a lot of you are clueless when it comes to a HOA.....The people that are members of the association make the rules..........If they don't like it they can vote it out..........Its obvious that most of the members of this association were Liberals who hate this country and our military.....This poor guy just bought a home in the wrong area...........I am glad he won out............

    You'd fit right in then wouldn't you Navy?

    Why would you assume any of what you wrote. In my experience, HOA people don't have political agendas, just strong opinions on asthetics.

    Well you sign them as part of buying your home. So you know them up front. I know this because my neighborhood has them, and flag poles other than on the side of your home are not allowed.

    I noticed the HOA was unavailable for comment. To me this means they ran into the buzz saw of public opinion and I am glad it happened.

    Too bad our current Messiah & dictator and his devils disciples don't give a damn about what WE THE PEOPLE think, want, or need.

    I am very happy about this for the hero.

    WTF does Obama and his administration have to do with this Homeowners Association? Way to go with the partisan hackery.
