When you move into a regulated community, one with a so-called 'home owner's association', you give up a lot of personal rights. You subject yourself to a true democracy. Believe me, democracy is not your friend. Democracy is majority rule with no appeal. Or has been said before, democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what is for supper.

What would be interesting is to fly a flag from the Middle East. And if anybody says anything you tell them you converted to Islam. And then see what they say. I bet they back off faster then if they had walked right up face to face with a grizzly bear. Complete bullshit. I would take a bulldozer to that whole fucking neighborhood. Democracy my ass. But as it was mentioned. If it's a condo and you don't own the land around the building you do not have private property rights. I used to live on a dead-end road. I loved it until one day we had to extend the Dead End Road into a Housing Association. To add insult to injury I had to survey all that land and turn a hundred sixty five acres of my hunting property into Yuppie Ville. This place had all kinds of restrictions like no toys in the front yard no RVs or boats or campers visible from the street. No clothes lines. You have to have a courtesy light at the end of your walkway 10 feet from the street. But I have a feeling most of the homeowners ganged up on the president had a meeting and they all agreed even after signing the mortgage which had all the stipulations attached you'll see toys in the front yard a boat on the side of the house and American flags flying proudly. A possible reason for this is more than half the people that live here are gun owners. God bless this neighborhood. All my neighbors are excellent. I live in probably one of the safest neighborhoods in the world. If all the gun owners walked out into the middle of the street we would all be within talking distance all the way up to the road and back. It's still a dead end with a big Loop Road that closes back and comes back out. If the bad guys ever came into this neighborhood all we need is two cars to block the road and it becomes the Roche Hotel. Check in but you won't check out. It already happened once the police were doing a Manhunt with helicopters off-road vehicles police on foot and in vehicles. And all concerned citizens We're lined up and down the road Eyes Wide Open and concealed weapons on person. We had more firearms in the police did. And luckily the police got a hold of this asshole before we did. And when they were rolling out of the neighborhood with this guy we cheered on our local cops because they are heroes. It took them less than an hour to find this guy in a big piece of woods who made the mistake of trying to sneak through our neighborhood. God Bless America and to hell with democracy. This is Texas truth Standing Tall and proud defending America against all assholes foreign and domestic.

People choose where they live..
I could never live in such a community...
Even in China I fly my flag from my window...
And my wife hangs the Chinese flag right next to it...

Proud Republican.
It hurts nobody but then the assault on religion is stupid. Athiests should live and let live.
Good analogies re. Democracy.

Proud Republican: the point is why do these haters object to another flying the American Flag? Or respecting the national anthem or ones religion? None of these things hurry them. Or MAGA hats. Just get on with their own little lives.

Proud...I understand the socialist goal and power at any cost. I just don't fully grasp why they put so much effort and hate into things they could just ignore.

It is a democracy and apparently the majority of home owners in it are not patriots, in that particular group.

I also think it is a stupid rule.

I live in a small town. I fly my flag 24-7 365 days a year and I am not the only one doing that here. Homeowner associations seem to be run by individuals who like being bullies telling residents what they can and can't do. It always seems to start with something small and seems to make common sense, but it will grow until it becomes overly intrusive.
