When Bozos Reign

This is what happens when bozos with tunnel vision are given even a fraction of power, as reported here by the Associated Press:

Woman faces fines for wreath peace sign

DENVER — A homeowners association in southwestern Colorado has threatened to fine a resident $25 a day until she removes a Christmas wreath with a peace sign that some say is an anti-Iraq war protest or a symbol of Satan.

Some residents who have complained have children serving in Iraq, said Bob Kearns, president of the Loma Linda Homeowners Association in Pagosa Springs. He said some residents have also believed it was a symbol of Satan. Three or four residents complained, he said.

“Somebody could put up signs that say drop bombs on Iraq. If you let one go up you have to let them all go up,” he said in a telephone interview Sunday.

Lisa Jensen said she wasn’t thinking of the war when she hung the wreath. She said, “Peace is way bigger than not being at war. This is a spiritual thing.” ….

The subdivision’s rules say no signs, billboards or advertising are permitted without the consent of the architectural control committee.

Kearns ordered the committee to require Jensen to remove the wreath, but members refused after concluding that it was merely a seasonal symbol that didn’t say anything. Kearns fired all five committee members. [full text]

  1. this sounds like mr.kearns is indulging in the conservative american passtime of Political Witch Huntin it is one of the old fashion values country singers are always blathering about in songs and books. Nothing puts a smile on their pink-chubby faces that the chance of accusing an innocent of evil.

  2. Wow. This one is just beyond the pale. So much for “Peace on Earth,” and the right to express oneself.

    Just what sort of values are we supposedly spreading in Iraq?
