    Homeowners Association Threatens to Tow Vietnam Veteran's Car Over Marines Decals

    Thursday, May 28, 2009
    Fox News

    A disabled Vietnam veteran in Dallas with more than 14 years of service in the Marines is under attack by a homeowners association, MyFOXDFW.com reports.

    Frank Larison's offense: showing his support for the Marines by displaying seven decals on his vehicle.

    "To me, it's being patriotic, and it shows that I served," Larison told the FOX affiliate.

    The board of The Woodlands II on The Creek says the decals violate the rules of the homeowners association, which deems them advertisements even though the TV station spotted other residents' vehicles with bumper stickers for political parties, health causes and other non-commercial interests.

    Larison has lived there for eight years. Now, he has been told in a letter to cover or get rid of the decals or his car will be towed and he could be fined $50 if it happens again, according to the report.

    It may not come to that. The TV station wasn't able to reach top officials at the residential community, though one board member interviewed seemed surprised that Larimore was being singled out.

    "I didn't know anything about this. I haven't seen this," board member Art Bradford told the TV station. "I will be looking into it."
    "Because we're a great nation, our challenges seem complex; it will always be this way. But as long as we remember our first principals and believe in ourselves, the future will always be ours." -Reagan

    Sounds like the genius signed a piece of paper that took some of his rights away.

    The Marines will do that, and so will a homeowners association.

    Maybe he should read what he is signing. If I am correct, the Marines will also tell you to remove politcal advertisments while serving.

    The guy signed something he didn't read.

    I was just wondering if he was aware of the rights he gave up when he joined the service ?

    Who in hell ever reads the fine print in those agreements ?Plus the homeowners association usually has a clique of an old transplanted New York lawyer and a a collection of old curmudgeons who have never voted any other party but liberal and a deep hatred the military .They have crafted a set of bylaws to control everything from flags to flowers ..

    What do you want to bet the stickers stay on his car? Asshole. Furthermore, I would like to see a punk like you either try to remove the sticker or tow his car away.
