I recieve this reply to my email... Thank you for your e-mail to Governor Bush. The Governor has issued the following statement regarding flying the flag on private property. Statement by: GOVERNOR JEB BUSH Regarding flying the American Flag on Private Property TALLAHASSEE - "On Tuesday, the day our country suffered attacks from depraved international terrorists, I encouraged all Floridians who own American flags to fly them to show support for the victims, their families and emergency workers, as well as to show defiance to the perpetrators of these awful acts and their protectors abroad. "However, I have received e-mail from constituents alerting me that they cannot comply with this call to exhibit our patriotism because of restrictions and limits on the public display of the American flag imposed by some homeowners associations or other community agreements. While I firmly support in general the right of communities to set their own policies for those who choose to live in them, I nevertheless believe an exception applies to the flying of our flag. "No one should be able to sign away their rights to fly and display Old Glory. I therefore support amending existing laws to clarify those principles and call on all Florida homeowners associations in the meantime to repeal any such provisions in their agreements and allow their members to participate in the support of their fallen countrymen as Americans traditionally have done." Let's hope this goes through, but our work is done here. [beer]

Let's not celebrate yet. Our work will not be finished until the law is amended and our friend the Marine isn't forced to pay over $28,000 in legal bills and fees to get the lien removed from his house. God Bless Texas
