Red, White and Blue: Such Hideous Colors!

What is it about the American flag that so disgusts the boards of Homeowners Associations? Why is it that patriotism across this grand country is dying? Our parents and grandparents fought fascism abroad a half dozen times over the past century. But the unregulated HOA movement is continuing to increase its dictatorial grip on the tens of millions of people who have come under its control. Our kids are growing up in schools that no longer teach the Pledge of Allegiance or duty to God and Country. They’re learning by our example that patriotism is just not PC.

The latest example comes to us, from of all places, El Paso, Texas which is essentially a military town. An HOA developer is demanding that an elementary school take down a red white and blue flag display from an exterior wall.

    from the story: “Tuesday, CISD officials said the Cimarron Homeowner’s Association took issue with the bold red, white & blue wall, which is currently only partially painted. But on Wednesday, district spokesman Rene Leon cleared up that it was Cimarron developer Hunt Communities that denied the use of the colors back in November.”

    Is the H.O.A. still developer controlled?

    I understand that Hunt Communities and Cimarron Homeowner’s Association are two seperate corporations, but that distinction is often nothing more than a legal fiction — especially with newer developments.

    PS — It looks like Cimmaraon is an Associa-managed corporation :
