Having dealt with home owner associations in the past, I can testify that their decisions often defy logic, but the request by the HOA in this story is inexcusable. Short summary, a man has put up 50+ American flags to celebrate the 4th. The HOA wants him to take some/most of them down.
Ridiculous. The owner says the flags will be taken down after the holiday. The purpose of an HOA is to maintain property values. To argue that American flags displayed during the 4th of July weekend lower property values is, as I just said, ridiculous.
Hats off to Mr. Zelek for standing his ground.
