“Isolated incidents” in America’s mandatory membership residential associations seem to be multiplying like the plague. Hardly a day goes by without hearing of at least a new horror story. But if one was to talk to the HOA professionals, the managers, the attorneys and anyone else who feeds at the trough of an HOA, one would be assured that the homeowners “agreed” to being abused, they “want” the restrictions because they protect “property values”.
Just in time to celebrate the 4th of July, we have yet another flag story.
Joining us On The Commons this week is Billy Martin. Billy has spent his life defending his country and everything it stands for, including the Stars and Stripes. He is passionate about the flag. But Billy is now being fined $200 a DAY for flying a flag on HIS property. I asked Billy if he didn’t “agree” to all this when he bought his townhouse. After all, isn’t that what the legislators will be told when they try to protect their constituents from such abuses? You will have to tune in to find out what he said.
