Peace Sign Not Appropriate During Wartime

A Denver Colorado home owners association is trying to douse one residents right to freedom of speech by fining her $25 per day for her choice of holiday decorations.

The homes exterior Christmas wreath, a rather large peace sign lit by a string of colorful lights, has been deemed as anti-war and some are likening it to a sign of Satanism.

The president of the association, which bans any signs, flags or other propoganda such as this wreath throughout their 200 household community, said he had three or four complaints from residents. He likened this festive outburst with that of someone putting up a sign to encourage people to drop bombs on Iraq.

Some feel he may have stepped outside the boundaries of his duties after firing the other members of the association for not executing his orders to remove the offensive decoration.

In his effort to control the small enclave of residents he has also banned everyone from participating in Global Orgasm Day slated for December 22.

"We don't want no stinking energy change either because that is considered anti-war as well," he said.

The homeowner, Lisa Jensen, told the press that her wreath is not anti anything but "merely a sign of spirituality in light of the season". She said it may cost her $1,000 to keep the wreath up but feels it will be money well spent, if indeed she ends up having to pay it at all.

"I'll keep my wreath up as long as I want and as far as everyone having sex on the same day in hopes of creating peace, the president of our homeowners association will be participating starting now because he's fucked from this moment on."

What a world. Everyone ever elected President of a HOA should be impeached the moment they are elected! Great post!

Maybe wish this guy a Merry Christmas, er, Happy Holidays.

Or, replace the peace sign with one of those HUGE Elmo decorations. Now, that would be a sign of Satanism....

LOL!! That is hilarious. Sounds like that guy desperately NEEDS to participate in Global Orgasm Day. Might improve his attitude.

Nothing like a little sperm buildup to ruin your day.

Update on this: After all the news reports came out, the HOA board started to realize just what jack-asses they were being. They've now backed off and said that the wreath can stay.

Just does to show you that if you're willing to stand up for yourself, the chance of a good outcome is always possible.

Personally I think the president of the HOA was just looking for his 15 minutes of fame. Living in a town that small, chances of something big happening are not likely.
