CantConfirmOrDeny: Surely it is a sign of the apocalypse ... I'm agreeing with the HOA.


It just better be a sign that's 2' x 2' or less.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: What Would Jesus Decorate?


If you take one and staple it to a couple of planks, it looks fabulous.

Earth's procession is the reason for the season. Pagan ritual is the reason for the seasonal celebration. Christian usurpation of the pagan ritual is the reason it has any meaning for Christians, but that's quite a bit of after-the-fact meaning assignment.

Anyone who messes with an HOA has my support.

What is with these people who worry about their damn home values, anyway? What a stupid, no longer relevant, concept.

Ed Finnerty: And the meek shall inherit the Earth.


We've taken care of everything
The words you hear, the songs you sing
The pictures that give pleasure to your eyes.
It's one for all and all for one
We work together, common sons
Never need to wonder how or why.
We are the Priests of the Temples of Syrinx HOA
Our great computers IBM Selectric typewriters fill the hallowed halls.
We are the Priests, of the Temples of Syrinx HOA
All the gifts of life are held within our walls.

You are going to need a bigger decoration if you want that to be decipherable from the street.

I wonder how many times Ms HOA has had to say this....

FFTA "she reinforced that it's purely the size that's at issue"

wildlifer: You want to get under the skin of a HOA? Gophers released onto their lawn or slugs released into flower beds. Let nature fight dirty for you.


And if we catch you, you'll be buying us a new communal lawn, and paying our legal fees for the privilege. And possible getting a criminal record as well.

Our lawn...stay off it.

Here's what everyone else in the neighborhood should do, if they hate both this guy and the HOA: put up equally large signs that say "HITLER DID NOTHING WRONG". Refuse to take the signs down until either this guy takes his Jesus sign down or the HOA caves on the sign size requirement. If the HOA caves, just put up 2x2 signs saying "HITLER DID NOTHING WRONG" (which meets the HOA code). That guy can choose to live with his 'Jesus Is The Reason for the Season' sign surrounded by 'HITLER DID NOTHING WRONG' signs, or he can take it down. Or he won't, and the HOA won't comply, or whatever, in which case, it will be a farking interesting neighborhood with interesting signs. I'm not offering a solution so much as I am inciting violence.

So... when will the Union busting politicals get off their asses and bust the HOA/COAs?

It's a strong grouping of people forcing the same rules upon everybody and as soon as you move into their territory you have to pay them to be a part of it whether you like it or not.

Perhaps a "Right to Buy Law" would be needed.....

FTFY.

Also, I think you meant precession, and that is the change in the tilt itself.

Submitter here... I'm trying to get one of my friends who lives in that same neighborhood to put up a 2 foot by 2 foot sign that he wanted to put up (he says he's too lazy and doesn't want to get vandalized) that says "Axial tilt: the reason for the season". 

I commented in the paper as well, asking: I wonder if one of his neighbors put up a Happy Hanukkah sign the same size as his, and put blue and white lights around it, or a sign saying "Merry Kwanzaa" or a sign wishing people a Merry Solstice, would he be leading the pack in requiring them to be removed?

Lsherm: No asshole, it's a sign. It's not even a decorative sign. It's just a sign.


This. The guy's just using the season to give him a reason to break HOA rules, which, while they're as popular as VDs around here, are to keep idiots like this from doing what he's doing.
