    Default Freedom to Display the American Flag Act, Passes...

    Fucking insane! The fact it had to become "legal"! Plus there's still restrictions...

    http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill...d?bill=h109-42

    WASHINGTON, June 27 /U.S. Newswire/ -- AMVETS National Commander Edward W. Kemp today praised House lawmakers for their passage of H.R. 42, the Freedom to Display the American Flag Act.

    The final vote was unanimous, with the measure now going to the Senate for final action.

    The bill would affirm property owners' constitutional right to fly the flag on their own property, regardless of any housing association rules or regulations.

    "I am proud that lawmakers are taking steps to stop this appalling practice by some housing communities that have been discouraging or preventing homeowners from displaying the flag," Kemp said. "I can think of nothing more un-American."

    AMVETS believes the flag belongs to all Americans and waves as the ultimate expression of freedom. It represents liberty, equal opportunity, tolerance, and goodwill for those who share American aspirations.

    "Everyone should have the right and freedom to display the flag wherever and whenever they choose, especially on their own property," Kemp said. "We will now focus on the Senate to ensure they follow suit and send this legislation to the president for his signature."

    A leader since 1944 in preserving the freedoms secured by America's Armed Forces, AMVETS is the only veteran service organization that represents members of every branch of the military, including the National Guard and Reserve. AMVETS provides support for veterans and the active military in procuring their earned entitlements as well as community services that enhance veterans' quality of life. More information on AMVETS can be found at http://www.amvets.org

    He's referring to homeowners associations. Alot of condo's and housing communities have them. They can be pretty controlling about things such as the color of your house, landscaping, even window coverings that are visible to the street.

    Thanks for the clue.

    I'm not in suburbia so I really can't relate but am thankful for that. They sound pretty uptight if that's all they gotta worry about. I'm a homeowner but my home's on a nice little acre lot with NO associations whatsoever.

    No prob. The only problem is that it's not exclusive to the suburbs. I have one of my very own and I live right in the middle of San Francisco.
