My Inner Terrorist

02 Dec

Stories like this bring out my inner terrorist! 

Col. Van T. Barfoot, a local Medal of Honor winner, is under the gun from his Henrico County community’s homeowner association.

In a five-paragraph letter to Barfoot that he received yesterday, Barfoot is being ordered to remove a flagpole from his yard. The decorated veteran of three wars, now 90 years old, raises the American flag every morning on the pole, then lowers and folds the flag at dusk each day in a three-corner military fashion.

In a priority mail letter, the Coates & Davenport law firm in Richmond is ordering Barfoot to remove the pole by 5 p.m. Friday or face “legal action being brought to enforce the Covenants and Restrictions against you.” The letter states that Barfoot will be subject to paying all legal fees and costs in any successful legal proceeding pursued by the homeowner association’s board.

Each of the HOA board members that raised a stink about this should be flogged, and all of the attorneys involved in this need to be dragged out into the street and beat to death with baseball bats!

    Although distasteful and a slap in the face of a hero, the CC&Rs protect all homeowners. The flip side of all this is that a particularly unpleasant flag or image might be displayed. The CC&Rs are a two sided sword. They can cut both ways by giving the neighborhood a uniform appearance, etc. They can also prohibit what we think is perfectly appropriate. It is the way it is.
