Flag Waving

July 26th, 2006

As far as I’m aware, this resolution really stems from Condominium and Subdivision associations which ban the display of “flags” or pelicans or inflatable kiddie pools within the commons or limited commons – and for subdivisions, on the private property, as well. The fact of the matter, is that these situations can already be dealt with: Don’t like your condominium bylaws? Run for a position on the board and try to change them. Don’t like your subdivision restrictions? Get your ass on the board and revise the restrictions. Did it ever dawn on you that some people moved there, because they didn’t want to be subjected to your ornamentation – however tasteful or tasteless it might be? Their freedom is now being usurped by an ├╝bernationalistiche House Resolution, affirming your right to disregard binding contracts.

At least it makes a nice photo-op. Look: You should’ve read and been made aware of all the bylaws and restrictions when you spent god-knows-how-much money on the house (or condo) where you live. If you didn’t like the terms of the deal, you should’ve moved elsewhere. Now you’re unhappy, and you konw if you reneg on your end of the bargain, you’ll be fined. Enter: The heavy hand of the government, forcing your patriotism down our throats.

Just chipping away at our freedom, eh? Because, you know – nothing says freedom like unbridled nationalism.
