    In my little Hillbilly Hollywood neighborhood, we got bylaws and covenents from hell. Not supposed to put a yard sign out even if you've sprayed ANTHRAX that morning..

    BUT --- We got the common sense to allow my neighbor to drape a 25Foot Flag from his roofline for a day or so at the Holidays. Or 46 pink flamingos up my neighbors driveway on his wife's birthday.

    What's telling here is the "no comment" bit. They COULD have said it violates our covenants, or we wouldn't allow flags on Gay Pride day or Cinco de Mayo either. But they didn't..

    no one at the housing authority will comment because no one at the housing authority made the decision. it was the state that decided this was a good idea, not the town.

    So the state of Taxachusettes, home of the original TEA Party, Battle of Bunker Hill, Plymouth Rock etc, is now deciding Freedom is not a good thing?

    They're free to move. They're also free to try and change it. And they're also free to protest it.

    beats me. now the state is saying the town fucked up and the state is reversing the decision.


    WRENTHAM — The state has stepped in to reverse a decision by a Massachusetts town’s housing authority that barred residents from flying U.S. flags outside their homes.

    A spokesman for the state Department of Housing and Community Development said Thursday that the flag ban was "a mistake that is being corrected immediately."


    personally, i think some asshat at the state level fucked up and is too much of a coward to admit it. saw the town housing director on tv today and she said it was the state's call.

    :dunno:

    If it was State Code -- why didn't they respond and say so? Where did you get this?

    You found it when you were grazing eh?
