Texas Legislature passed a law that no HOA can prohibit the installing of in ground flagpoles.. Only restriction is the height cannot exceed 25 ft. I fly a flag everyday on my 18 ft flagpole. God bless Texas and the USA!
This is unreal next they will be shooting us for believing in JESUS. We need to stop this nonsense
I'm unclear on why there needs to be multiple laws for this, because there's already one, the federal Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005, signed by GW Bush: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/109/hr42.
Right and in California, Civil Code 1353.5 protects the right to display the flag in the owner's separate interest or exclusive use common area. I think we need a petition to encourage people who start petitions to do some Googling first. :)
I dare someone to tell me I can't display an American Flag on my property or person. There are laws governing the methodology of doing so, and as long as they're followed, there's no question. My grandfathers, cousins, father, brothers, friends, and love of my life were/are all enlisted men & women. Try to tell them to remove their flags, you'll regret abusing the rights they fought/fight to afford you.
There are also laws that say you honor signed agreements you make. Nobody made anyone move where there is a homeowners association in charge.
I can't imagine, being in America, having someone tell me I can't fly our flag.
it is wrong not to be able o fly the American flag and that law would be taking away your rights as an American citizen
Oh, oh just let someone come and tell me I can't fly the American Flag on my property!
Are you kidding me!!!!!
Someone needs to put these Communist rectums in their place. I'd say take it down if you dare! Guns talk, B.S. walks
You got that right edwin!!!!
I'm a disabled veteran and anyone that would come on my land and tell me to take my flag down would be carried out on a stretcher with out another word said I gave my life for that flag and all it stands for and I would do it all over again to keep freedom for my family.
you go james!!!!!!
You tell em James
I'm sure a lot of folks feel the same as you do.
Sir I thank you for your sacrifices, and I agree except for one thing: we don't fight for a flag, we fight for what a flag SYMBOLIZES. And evidently, this is a violation of what the flag stands for, including the right to fly one as the first amendment guarantees as freedom of speech.
AMEN YOU TELL THEM!!!
DAMNED STRAIGHT, Koval ! TELL'EM somethin' ! ! ;-)
GOD_B L E S S_ O U R ( ! ! ) A M E R I C A ! ! ! SEMPER FI !
and my thanks to James Koval................another proud american............awesome
Well said James and thank you for your service to our country its people like you who keep America safe! If we cant hang an American Flag in America on our own land where the hell can it be hung! Whats even more confusing is that i can burn an American flag in the middle of the street and its called my right but if i try to hang and fly one its a problem? Whats wrong with thispicture
Way to go. I'm a MARINE, proud of it & mostly proud of the MEN AND WOMEN of past, present & future.
GOD BLESS ALL
I AGREE...........SO JAMES .......
I think its time for our government to make it a little harder for people to become citizens of our once great country and put a gigantic fence on the border to mexico! times are getting a bit to hard for natural citizens to get by and immigration laws are the reason for it! we cant keep allowing foreigners to come here and change our country!
Yeah, Too bad the Native American Indians didn't try that way back when. Charles, your last name don't even fit that of the very first colonists. Hmmmmmmmm
no it doesnt but i was born here and so were my parents.this country is going to hell in a hand basket and i dont want to be alive when it does!
Wow.... Since u didn't come over on the mayflower ....maybe you should just jump ship now and leave more room for people who wanna be here.
Isn't this part of our freedom of speech? Why can people destroy our flag and aren't flogged for doing that? This is the United States and I can't believe there is a petition like this. If you don't want the flag to be displayed, you shouldn't be in this country!
Thank you for clarifying the Freedom of Speech. I'd help you in trying to save that flag Daniel.
Daniel Quinn, Actually, the 1st Amendment has been bastardized by the scotus and lawyers. The implication and intent of the 1st Amendment was ONLY to give the populace redress with griervances against the government without the threat of reprisal. That is how it was meant, not burning the flag as an expression thereof!
