    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush on Monday signed a bill that would bar condominium and homeowner associations from restricting how the American flag can be displayed.

    Sponsored by Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, R-Md., the resolution would prohibit those groups from preventing residents from displaying an American flag on their own property.

    It was passed unanimously by both the House and the Senate.

    "Americans have long flown our flag as an expression of their appreciation for our freedoms and their pride in our nation," Bush said in a statement. "As our brave men and women continue to fight to protect our country overseas, Congress has passed an important measure to protect our citizens right to express their patriotism here at home without burdensome restrictions.

    It's stupid for HOA's not allow their residents to display a flag, yet aren't conservatives the ones always spouting that the govt should stay out of peoples' business??

    HOA"s although made up of people are an association that needed to be superceded in order for the individual to practice their freedom of speech rights on their own property. So it looks to me like this is exactly in keeping with a conservative philosophy.

    Couldn't the home owner just find a place where the HOA's are flag-friendly? You'd think that the govt got better things/more important things to worry about?

    Its the HOA are sticking their noses into people's 'business' where it doesn't belong. And they are not an elected form of government.

    That's the exact, and only purpose, of a HOA. I wish they were outlawed altogether.

    You should be able to do what you like with your property as long as it doesn't endanger others.

    Your suggesting the homeowner sell his condo and look for a HOA that is flag friendly??? That is a pretty sad statement of affairs in the U.S if it's actually come to that :(
    Also does not address the problem long term as one can move into a development that is flag happy only to have the HOA nazis change their minds at the next monthly meeting.

    If you wish to remain an American there's a line you just don't cross.

    What are you...an American...or one of the enemy within our borders?

    :wtf:
