No connections. Just advice. Don't come to California with an American flag

There are two sides to every story. Apparently the HOAs for his Community allowed for a Flag to be displayed from a bracket affixed to the front of his garage. This individual insisted on sticking it into a flower pot on his porch.

The dispute wasn't about the HOA not allowing him to display a Flag (which is what he was trying to communicate in his interviews). The dispute was about HOW it could be displayed.

Like Will Rogers, all I know about it is what I see in the news reports. What we DON'T know is what other disputes has he had with the HOAs and the Compliance Committee? Did he bother to read the HOAs before he signed them? Did he catch his wife in bed with the Committee Chairman (or Chairwoman)? Does his chewing gum lose its flavor on his bedpost overnight? Etc, ad nauseum.

What we do know is that the HOA said he could display a 2' x 3' Flag from a bracket attached to his garage wall. His patriotism apparently wasn't THAT big. It only reached far enough to stick a 3" x 5" Flag in the dirt of a flower pot on his porch. However, his sense of aggrieved patriotic fervour gave him enough energy to give TV news interviews, telling about how the big, bad, meanies of the Compliance Committee have bullied him about his non-compliance with an agreement he signed.

It would have taken less time and energy to mount the Flag on his garage wall.

I lived in an HOA before and in areas without them. They are fantastic at dealing with neighbors who dont keep up their property and drag your value down.
