    ‘Don’t tread on me’ flags start disputes around the country | The Upshot Yahoo! News - Yahoo! News


    Unless the flag is offensive, I don't think your homeowner association should be telling you what kind of flag to fly. They should stick to regulating shrub numbers, and if you leave a beer bottle on your front step.

    Fucking homo homeowners associations.

    Why on earth would anyone buy a house in a neighborhood where a bunch of fucking busybodies watch your every move and tell you what you can and can't do on your own property?

    Probably due to security.
    My parents have one, but lucky they are not to involved in everything. I think the only thing they tell them to do, is have a lamp post by the street, and have a mail box for the block.
    One time we stayed at my friend's Grandparents house in Vegas, and we got in trouble because we left a beer bottle on the front porch. I left it there around 630am, and the guard was there by 730am. :lol:

    Skull Pilot, if you had ever lived next door to the glow-in-the-dark pink house whose owners park on the front lawn, keep goats and run their mouths and tvs at top volume 24/7, a housing association might see more attractive.

    Don't people agree to abide by the rules of the Homeowner's association?

    It does seem silly, but what if someone wanted to fly a nazi flag, or *gasp* a Mexican flag?

    Shame on the ACLU, always sticking their noses where it doesn't belong! You think conservatives support this. I read my bylaws that says no political signs in the front yard so as much as I want to put a Steve Kim for Attorney General on my lawn, I knew the bylaws coming in, so why should I complain now. And if I did complain now, by god I don't what the ACLU sticking its fucking nose into the matter!
