Homeowner Associations suck

This story has been percolating over the internet tubes for several days, probably because it is so freaking ridiculous.

Pro-Peace Symbol Forces Win Battle in Colorado Town Last week, a couple were threatened with fines of $25 a day by their homeowners’ association unless they removed a four-foot wreath shaped like a peace symbol from the front of their house.

The fines have been dropped, and the three-member board of the association has resigned, according to an e-mail message sent to residents on Monday.

Two board members have disconnected their telephones, apparently to escape the waves of callers asking what the board could have been thinking, residents said. The third board member, with a working phone, did not return a call for comment.

In its original letter to the couple, Lisa Jensen and Bill Trimarco, the association said some neighbors had found the peace symbol politically “divisive.”

A board member later told a newspaper that he thought the familiar circle with angled lines was also, perhaps, a sign of the devil.

Hmm, now there may be something to that. The Christian-Taliban support war, murder, death, so by contrast, people who support peace must be evil. [Disclaimer, am obviously joking, somewhat]
