For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the son of man be. Mathew 24:27
Loud pipes saves lives.
A few years back some friends and i were going to the Myrtle Beach Bike Week and got a condo from a realtor. When we got to the place (8 hour drive) there was a sign informing us that motorcycles were not allowed in the complex. Luckily,my Wife drove her Mustang and had to ferry us about 3/4 of a mile from the front gate to the apartment every time we left or came back.
My dad in HOA type situation had to return a golf practice thing to me as they were not allowed to put anything in their front yards...even temporarily.
The HOA at my parents house tried to give us flak until we provided them a bill for the service of mowing the retention pond that bordered our property for 7 years. It also might have been no one wanted to knock on the door because they had to walk past my hearse.(the cause of the problems) It is just maddening to me how up tight a few neighbors can get.
SelfDefense, the Constitution defines the powers of the Federal government so it does not restrict our freedoms, enumerates individual rights, and states that all other rights are reserved for the states or the people. HOA's are not governmental bodies. They are legal contractural entities. So you enter into a contract with them. As a lawyer friend of mine likes to remind me, you can't sign away your rights or freedoms in a contract. HOA's don't have the authority to restrict what you drive or park on a public road. Government does.
But many of the HOA's control PRIVATE roadways within their boundaries. If you didn't read the restrictions before you signed the deal, it's your fault. You wouldn't catch me dead living under those regimes.
Treat me good, I'll treat you better. Treat me bad, I'll treat you worse.
No matter how you want to defend it, it's fits the very definition of descrimination. I won't add the one used most often in Sociology, but the one in Wikipedia is close enough. .....
Wikipedia : Discrimination is a sociological term that refers to treatment taken toward or against a person of a certain group that is taken in consideration based on class or category. The United Nations explains: "Discriminatory behaviours take many forms, but they all involve some form of exclusion or rejection."
