    I'm glad I live in Texas! My neighbor 2 homes down has a "schoolyard-sized" flagpole sporting the USA flag as well as the British, and the HMA didn't dare say a thing about it! I think if I lived in CA or NY I would surely perish!:usa:

    I am a Property Manager for Homeowner's Associations. Have been for 13 years. Issues like these come up and it is up to the professional managers to make Boards and Homewoners aware fo covenant restrictions that are unenforceable. Prohibitions against flying the flag is one such innenforceable restriction.

    I will have to dig to find the link, but there was a ruling in CA on this same issue whereing an HOA tried to enforce thier flag rule. The courts struck it down based on a Federal Law which obviously trumps any CC&R (covenant).

    If/when I find it, I will post it - both the court case and the Fed. Statute.

    A generation ago, anyone arguing for the right of a woman to murder her unborn child would have been called a nut. Anyone screaming for the right of a man to marry another man would have been called a pervert.

    And anyone voicing opposition to the flying of the American flag would have gotten his natural ass kicked.

    Isn't it wonderful how we've progressed?

    It would be, except some people are reluctant for change and progress, as if their 'status quo' is going to be affected.

    My position on the issue: The guy can move to a retirement community that does not hold such a restriction. As good and as patriotic as he may be, he is supposed to follow the rules.

    I have to agree with mattskramer (mornin' matty), if you read it and signed it, no soup for you; grow up, honor your commitments.
