Ya just gotta love Texans. “Remember the Alamo! Remember Goliad!” That was Sam Houston’s cry as his Army chased General Santa Anna across the desert. Texans have always had a fighting spirit.

The story linked below deserves to be read and shared. A number of homeowners in the Pecan Lakes Homeowners Association are rebelling against stupid HOA rules. They’ve got a knight in shining armor and a funny way of defying authority.

This Could Be Interesting!

Lots of negativity in the HOA world. But on the other side of the fence there’s an interesting plea which we could actually network into something positive.

Anyone who knows someone in the San Antonio area please pay attention.

The word is that there’s a retired Air Force pilot who’s battling leukemia. The city has threatened to fine him because his grass is too high. There may be some other issues as well. Obviously, his health is preventing him from mowing his yard himself, but a family member who lives elsewhere in the country is trying to find someone or some agency which can help this fellow.

Finally, One CAI Member Gets It Right!

This letter to the editor of a Pennsylvania newspaper by a CAI member is terrifying. He doesn’t use the words ‘fascist’ or ‘communist’ but it’s a pretty wild look at what homeowners have done to themselves by buying into the concept of Homeowners Associations. This country has essentially sold its soul to the devil. We have created a parallel system of government which has no controls, no ethics, no honesty. It’s a system of trial lawyers, by trial lawyers, and for trial lawyers. Homeowners have no access to traditional Constitutional rights. And the concept of true home ownership is a thing of the past.

Another One Of Those ‘Isolated Incidents’

HOA boosters like the Community Associations Institute would have us all believe that embezzling by HOA board members is very isolated. Linked below is one more of the hundreds and even thousands of cases of out-of-control board members stealing from their neighbors.

(how isolated is HOA embezzling?)


Rachel Anna Rosoff

guest blog by Nila Ridings

She was a 17 year old lifeguard at the Heritage Point HOA swimming pool. She was found in the water by another employee, but he could not jump in and try to save her because the water was electrified.

My heart is broken for her parents, family, and friends who will say a final good-bye to Rachel in the coming days. There will always be the unanswered questions. One will be “why” did this young woman’s life end so soon?
