Check out Raising an American flag on a free standing pole isn’t “aethetically pleasing” at Smash Mouth Politics.  

I first heard about the subject of John Doe’s post, an argument over taste and decor  😉   , on the Mark Levin show.   Levin is caustic, but downloading his show is free, and his show is generally informative.  So I listen. 

When Levin mentioned what the Sussex Square homeowners’ association and their idiot lawyers  (Coates and Davenport) want to do to a 90-year-old veteran, I found myself shaking my head in disgust.   How can lawyers be so arrogant and stupid and still stay in business?  To make the affair impossibly absurd, the senior citizen these fools want to push around earned the  Medal of Honor.  Even at 90 years, Barfoot has more grit than any slick shyster.

United Conservatives of Virginia links to a poll, Take the Poll.  The site with the poll provides a little more background. UCV also has a couple of other posts on the subject.

Decision Virginia notes the politicians who are jumping on the bandwagon.  Here is the latest, Webb sends letter to HOA in defense of Barfoot.

VIVIAN J. PAIGE | All Politics is Local links to a good video, RHIP: Let him fly the flag.

The Lee Brothers Blog makes its position clear.  The Sussex Square community board of directors has No honor!  Honor.  That is a term we hear too little of these days, but we each should be willing to risk death for that in which we believe.  That is what Col Barfoot’s medal says about him.  He risked his life to protect us.  If we allow his service to be dishonored, we shame ourselves.

  1. It seems to me that the main purposes of a homeowner’s association are to manage common areas, share the costs of such things as garbage pickup, and to prevent derlict homeowners from creating eyesores and public nuisances. Most people just want to keep their neighborhood nice and protect the value of their home. Unfortunately, there are always some people who cannot distinguish the difference between imposing their values on others and protecting their property values.

    Anyway, there is a guy just a couple of houses down from my house with a free standing flag pole. Until this story came up, I just thought he had a nice flag pole. Now I think it is great!

  2. We had a similar complaint in our community a few years ago. A Vet wanted to fly his flag on a real flagpole which he already had in his back yard. He was told he couldn’t. The regs say you can fly one if the pole is attached to the home and if it is approved. The guy went off in a meeting. I don’t blame him.

  3. Thanks for the link, Tom. Check out my new post from yesterday. I took photos of some of the other houses in the neighborhood to show what a joke this all is. It illustrates how petty the Board of Supervisors are acting.
