    WWII vet in Virginia battles homeowners group over flag issue | delmarvanow.com | The Daily Times

    Fuck the Sussex Square homeowners’ association. The guy served in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam with over thirty years of service. Plus, winning several awards including the Purple Heart AND The Medal of Honor.

    As far as I'm concerned, he can put whatever he wants on his lawn and I hope the Judge fines these people for coming to court for wasting his time with such a lawsuit.

    Thoughts?

    Donald Trump faced a similar suit in West Palm. He sued them for $25 million.

    I remember Penn and Teller doing a related episode on these groups. Ridiculous. I believe that a person has a right to put whatever on their lawn as long as it's not a health hazard or threat to someone else.

    But the balls of these cowards to try and do this to guy. They should be proud of the fact the guy decides to live in their neighborhood. I know I would be.

    I understand why such ordinances are in place, but it shouldn't come down to the size of a flag.

    How apt that a MOH winner from WWII is still fighting the Lawn Nazi's.

    I too believe he is in the right.

    I didn't want to invoke Godwin's law, but that's exactly what Penn and Teller called them.

    Exactly. I can understand it too. The other thing is, these people are not really trying to work out a solution with the guy.
