Absolutely sick. http://www.wtvr.com/news/wtvr-veteran-flagpole,0,2550197.story Van Barfoot is a very highly decorated WW2 vet (who is 90 years old) has a flag & flagpole in the front yard of his house. Barfoot has been awared more than 20 medals, including the Medal of Honor, The Silver Star, the Legion of Merit, The Bronze Star, and three Purple Hearts. He served from WW2 all the way to Vietnam. The homeowners association, whose covenant does not explicitly ban flagpoles, has their depends in a bunch. They are trying to force him to remove the flagpole. What a bunch of ungrateful imbeciles. His sacrifice obviously means little to them. I hope he pulls up the flagpole, and beats them over their noggins with it...then he puts it back, runs up Old Glory, and salutes.
