    ” “Placing additional flags in common areas in order to bring greater attention to a particular business is inappropriate,” the spokesman wrote. “On behalf of all owners in the park, we proudly fly two American flags in honor of those who have died for our freedom and those serving our country.” Recently, fights between residents and homeowners’ associations over the flying of the American flag have captured national headlines. ”

    i think it is important to make clear the property owner is allowed to decide how many american flags to fly and where they are placed . that is the american way that is freedom . on the surface i think articles and headlines like this capture attention , people imagine the obama administration is tearing down american flags and putting up UN flags or something . but in reality it is more like the homeowners association telling a guy he can’t have the huge swamp cooler sticking off the side of his house and he needs to mow the lawn . if you believe in freedom especially private sector freedom you shouldn’t care when a private group determines the standards it wants for the land it owns , you definately should not be asking the federal government to come in and make this group allow american flags to fly in places they do not wish them to on thier property. what is the point of bringing attention to this? do you seriously want the government to tell you how many flags you have to fly and where to put them?
