xxxxxxxxx Non-HOA. But Totally Funny!

Well, heck, I’ll take a shot at linking it to the national HOA disgrace. One of the most unreported felonies in the country, of course, is embezzlement from Homeowners Associations.

But (and here’s my lame attempt at making the subject faintly relevant), did you know that birds can be as crooked as the bird-brains who manage Homeowners Associations?

Yup, the owner of a car wash in New Brunswick, Canada thought his employees were stealing money from one of his car wash machines, so he set up a hidden camera to catch the thief. And here you see the results: 

You Rotten Canadians!

And here I thought Canadians were all so polite. Well, in my experience, they’re a heck of a lot more polite than your typical American.

Still, when people get involved in a Homeowners Association, on either side of the border, tempers can flare, guns get pulled, people get injured and are sometimes even shot to death. So far, all the HOA murders have happened on the American side.

Another News Station ‘Gets It’ About HOAs

Have you noticed over the past couple of years how more and more news media outlets are doing HOA stories? It’s a trend that will continue growing as HOA boards and management companies become more abusive. In fact, when the HOA bubble bursts in the coming housing collapse, HOA homeowners are going to be screaming about their vanishing home equity. They can’t complain that we didn’t try to warn them.

The NBC affiliate in Atlanta is the latest station to become a little more aggressive. Here’s the link to their story.

Another Great One From Deborah Goonan

One of the country’s best Homeowners’ Rights bloggers….perhaps THE best is Deborah Goonan. Her blog is Independent American Communities. Articulate, wise, informed. In short, I’m wildly jealous of her! Maybe in the next lifetime I’ll be reincarnated with her brain.

In any event, her current post, linked below, is one you should print out and keep copies in a file folder where you can quickly find it to hand out to friends.

Run Like Your Hair Is On Fire From Village Cooperative

guest blog by Nila Ridings

Facebook has lots of HOA, COA and cooperative ads that pop up and most I ignore. This one I could not because it said Village Cooperative a 55+ housing community. And wouldn’t you know Facebook has it blocked so I cannot make any comments. A year or so ago I did comment on some sort of HOA advertising and since then I’ve been blocked from making comments on all things HOA. Coincidence? I think not.
