NJ 75 years old grand ma to be kicked out of her house because she has American flags on her balcony
WTF!!

Elderly woman faces eviction for American flags

A 75-year-old New Jersey woman faces the possibility of eviction for hanging three American flags from her balcony.

Main street Phillipsburg, NJ is adorned with that inalienable symbol of American patriotism.

The stars and stripes hang in front of the municipal building, on private homes and commercial businesses.

There's a big one outside the government run senior housing complex where Dawn Paulus lives, but it's the three little ones hanging from her sixth floor balcony that have stirred a huge controversy.

"They say I should be shipped off to the Russian gulag, that I'm anti-American," said Paul Rummerfield, Housing Authority Executive Director.

That's because the Housing Authority has ordered Paulus to take down the flags she attached to her balcony in early may or face eviction.

That was two weeks ago and the flags are still there.

She does not own the building, therefore she has no constitutional rights to hang the flags. The owner of the building holds the cards.

From what I heard on the radio, the justification for this rule has something to do with "discrimination".

Well whatever, in that case, fly those flags lady! I'm opposed to all anti-discrimination rules.

Bull fucking shit.

Just because you own the building doesn't mean that the bill of rights doesn't apply inside the building.

That would mean that people could have slaves, as long as the slaves stay inside... completely ridiculous.

Maybe some of those American troops who have been defending all of our freedoms, especially the ones who simulated an attack on Long Branch NJ on Monday night, can go and help this woman....

But they won't.

Just like they didn't defend our rights when the Patriot Act, John Warner Defence Act, NDAA, Unconstitutional executive orders, etc. were all passed.

Now watch all the yahoos come out and call me a commie.

The Housing Authority says it's not about old glory, it's about safety.

"Let's just say you let somebody have a flag and somebody puts a hanging basket up there that's filled with dirt that may weight five to 10 pounds and comes crashing down on someone. It has a potential to hurt, then it's we didn't do enough to protect people," Rummerfield said.

Dangers of a small flat piece of died cloth = hanging basket?

I don't think the issue is about constitutional rights (WHAT CONSTITUTION)?

I assume people are outraged/concerned that the American flag being hung in an American city would be considered anti-American or offensive.

In the recent past not supporting the flag was looked down upon...now the opposite? That might cause some confusion and unrest...don't you think?

It seems the destruction of nationalism is in full effect....maybe that's the reason for the sudden uptick in religious political campaigning?

Every country needs their glue..and the two main brands that hold a society together have always been "Religion" & "Nationalism".

In this situation there is not a hanging basket.

Yeah I noticed that. Her flags are just hanging there not attached to a pot. The housing Authority told her she could put them in the flower pot.

Now they are saying the flower pot is the danger when they are the ones that told her to put them in there. That danger is the reason for them stopping it supposedly. Sounds like they manipulated the old lady so they would have a reason to evict her for her flags.

bullshit mofo, get a clue.

On July 24, 2006, President Bush signed into law the Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005.

The law is short and to the point. Section 3 states:

A condominium association, cooperative association or residential real estate management association (i.e. a homeowner association) may not adopt or enforce any policy, or enter into any agreement, that would restrict or prevent a member of the association from displaying the flag of the United States on residential property within the association with respect to which such member has a separate ownership interest or a right to exclusive possession or use.

When did you have rights? What rights to you think the immigrants have? Did you ever consider the possibility that the immigrants did not gain control over the "rights" that you thought you had?

Has it maybe occurred to you that hate is a weapon used to breed discontent? Maybe the natural born citizens of your country and the immigrants are being played against one another..

Maybe the illusion of "rights" that you held as your own never existed..and maybe the immigrants had a damn good reason for immigrating..I doubt it was to experience the ignorant hostility of a bunch of dumb asses who still childishly believe they have choices or rights!

The immigrants may still be able to offer you a bit of an education on how the world works.If they went to the place where you exist the were probably fleeing from something far worse then you can imagine.Or maybe some of them are taking advantage of opportunities that you were to lazy, egotistical or stupid to grab when you could.

Do you think the ones who move the pieces on the game board need or have any interest in patriotism? Religious beliefs? immigration policies? If the ones in control had no desire or purpose for the "immigrants", they would not be there,and if your purpose was up they would do away with you as well.

Maybe it is easier to let the people kill eachother , hate eachother and self destruct...then they don't have to lift a finger because all of the fingers will be pointing in the wrong directions.

Countries spend billions on defense and you actually believe, with all their high tech weaponry that they can't secure their own borders??

Why would a country of birth or a political system matter to the ones who feel the own the entire earth?

Most amusing though... forcing "GAY" rights on your children? That is hilarious. Think about what you just said.You think a "right" can be forced on anyone? Your children already have the "right" to be gay. But as you look in the wrong direction for a scapegoat to pin shit on you actually complain about"rights" being forced and taken away! in the same sentence.
