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!

Anyone foolish enough or enough of a social climber to move to a "gated community'" or similar neighborhood with regulations telling one how their house and yard must be kept is getting exactly what they paid for. I am rather tired of people being just fine with discrimination until they find themselves being discriminated against.

If you dont like the rules of your association then move. One of the biggest problems we have is people think just cause they dont like a rule they dont have to follow it. My personal opinion is you should be able to fly anything you want but thats why i dont live in an association, what about the people who bought a house because there would be no flags?? If you sign a piece of paper agreeing to the rules you cant turn around and choose which rules you feel are good. Its ridiculous how we...

Its ridiculous how we teach our children that when you dont like a rule or think its stupid that justifies breaking it then we get mad when the stay out all night

You guys are all missing the point of the article. It is a homeowners association. Not a left wing immigrant political group. There are bylaws in a Homeowners Association. Those bylaws can be changed by simply voting to have the by law changed. A percentage of the home owners have to sign a petition to change the bylaw and a 51% majority have to vote to adopt the change at an AGM. Anyone living in a condo or live in a community with a homeowners association should check their by laws. Change the by law and fly the flag.

You got it right Trevor. Everyone that is freaking out over loosing their freedom is missing the point. HOA's are there to protect the community and property values. Read your CC&R's before buying.

The sad part of this is that as a nation, we are being conditioned to give up our rights bit by bit, and many of the people are willingly opting into this by purchasing a tract of land in a subdivision governed by a "home owner’s ass. = little gestapo" government is getting too big - be it the homeowners association, the city, the county - we as a people need to be responsible, take care of ourselves and of our own - my father was a WW11 vet, spent 6 months in a POW camp - I will not be...

THANK YOUR PRESIDENT FOR THIS, HE WANTS TO TAKE ALL OUR RIGHTS AWAY & ITS SAD HE IS DOING IT. COME HER FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY & YOU HAVE MORE RIGHTS THEN UN TRUE AMERICANS. TAKE OUR HARD EARNED MONEY & THE GOVERMENT GIVES IT TO THEM. I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST THEM BUT COME HERE THE LEGAL WAY.

I don't agree that a home owners association should have the right to do this. However, I say, let those who accept this rule live together and the rest of us can steer clear.

We will fly our flag 24 hours a day. We have done that for years and will continue to do it until the day I die.
