As many on here know, I do not do politics, but this sound clip about a 90 year old Veteran got to me about how much power these Homeowner Associations have. It's bad enough how the Vets are treated after they come home ....

There are areas around here that were developed after WWII and then Associations came in just a few years ago with the cities permission and took over, as it then cost less for the city on upkeep.

Maybe that happens, but not in this case. The Association that denied permission to erect a verticle flagpole was in existence when Mr. Barfoot bought his house there, according to this column in the Richmond, VA newspaper. Flagpoles are permitted - but they must be diagonal.

Moral of the story - if you don't want a bunch of tight-assed suburbanites telling you what to do, don't buy a house in a subdivision ruled by a homeowner's association.

Rules are rules and he knew he was in violation when he put up that flagpole instead of fastening one to the front of his house like everyone else. If he could not follow those rules he just should have not moved into that neighborhood in the first place. I see some people playing up the story about him being a 90 year old vet and I am sure some will get a lot of mileage out of this story. To me it is just a case of someone who thinks the rules do not apply to them and who he is comes in second place in the story. I respect the man for his service to their country but someone who was in the military for that long should have known better. That is just my opinion on the matter.

I'm used to living on various sized wooded acreage! I'll take wooded acreage, over living in a concrete sub anytime! More often that not, there's going to be neighbor problems eventually- maybe not right next door but a couple, three doors down or so, someone is going to bitch about something, however trite it may be!
