LOL! Free Speech and Clint Eastwood’s Empty Chair

This is hilarious! A Homeowners Association in Debary, Florida, refuses to let homeowners post political signs in their front yards. As we all know by now, the right to free speech in the Constitution’s Bill of Rights is not recognized by the American Homeowners Association movement.

Now, homeowners throughout the neighborhood are placing empty chairs in their yards where they could have placed their political signs.  It’s an obvious reference to Clint Eastwood’s empty chair speech at the Republican National Convention.

Presumably, Republicans and Democrats in Debary ought to be concerned about their  lack of access to free speech rights.

    “Mr. Eastwood is a Mitt Romney supporter, and it looks like a lot of the residents in this one DeBary neighborhood are too.”

    Odd, becuase HOAs are the Republican Party’s gift to middle-class American homeowners.

    Instead of a Gadsden Flag, Tea Party members in HOAs should be dispaying “Tread On Me” flags, because they agreed to be oppressed by privatized corporate governments; trading their essential liberty for the false promises of security and property values.
