Military Mom Refuses To Remove Flag From Window
Military Mom Refuses To Remove Flag From Window - News Story - WEWS Cleveland
CANTON, Ohio -- A military mother in Ohio vows she'll stand firm against her condo association's demand that she remove a flag from her window.
Marlene Gano of suburban Canton said her Blue Star flag will stay where it is until the war in Iraq is over and her son, 55-year-old Army Master Sgt. Richard Gano Jr., is home.
The flag, featuring a single blue star on a white background framed in a red border, has been displayed since World War I by families with members serving in war.
Gano received a letter May 1 from her condominium's management company saying the flag must go because the rules state that nothing may be displayed in windows. A representative of REM Commercial Association Management says many condo associations have a similar rule to keep units uniform."Like" us on facebook! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Offic...93147194083228

The association will win because when she bought the unit she signed a contract agreeing to abide by their rules. I hate condo and homeowners associations because they are often run by little Hitlers with nothing better to do than walk around the neighborhood with a ruler measuring the height of your grass.Pleasing nobody, one person at a time.
That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

I suppose you *could* find a civil jury that would let the condo association win, but it would have to be in a blue state city.I'm your huckleberry...

Don't people have better things to do with their time than bring a woman to court for having a Blue Star in her window!!! Give me a break. Patriotism takes another blow to the gut.
My dad, I miss him every day.

Leave it up, then contact our favorite people "the media" to plaster their faces on the nightly news when they remove the flag...............Swamp Mafia
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and like it, never really care for anything else.
