Let Freedom Ring!

Fellow blogger Steve the Lightning Man at Global Domination Through Applied Inactivity brings great news!

Last Friday, I posted a video clip and commented on a situation in Richmond, Virginia where Colonel Van T. Barfoot, a retired Army veteran of three wars received a request from his homeowners association to remove his 21-foot flagpole from his yard and was being threatened with litigation if he did not abide by their request.

It seems common sense has won a great victory, as Americans have rallied around this patriot and the homeowners association has dropped their request and backed away from threats.

For more information check out this Fox News story.

Congratulations, Colonel Barfoot!

I'm glad to hear this. Mark Levin was taking up this man's cause, too. Honestly, what are people thinking to deny this gent the pleasure of raising the flag? About time they wised up...guess it took the national spotlight to change their minds.

Good for him!!

(and I'm laughing that my word verification is whingnut. should I be offended?)

This was a nation wide story. Mark Levin was after the lawyers that were representing the homeowners assoc. These were a very small minded group of people. I believe he was also a Medal of Honor recipient.

TCL - clearly they were not thinking, and I'm guessing that spotlight was quite bright to that HOA...

you should not be offended, you should be flattered!

I've noticed Google seems to have some kind of algorithmic creator that knows something about either the commenter or the blog being commented upon.

I've been called a few interesting names by Google as I comment... and they're known leftists there..

Odie - you are correct, Medal of Honor, and fought in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam.

All in the name of sameness.
