Its over

Wow.... Its been forever.

 Long story short, the management company caved and never pursued anything. In turn, the legislature passed a law to incorporate the Gadsden flag into the revised statues. This now means the flag is a protected flag by law in the State of Arizona.

 I thank you all for your support.

Its been a while...

...and Im sorry. Nothing new to report, but there is another HOA meeting Tuesday Nov 2nd (voting day).

 The HOA board and management company has not pursued anything, ie fines, letters, litigation, etc, so i am really stuck until they make the next move.

 The flag is still flying, the laywer is still in my corner, as is the ACLU.

When I have something of substance i will update you all

Thank you for following...

Another great article

Steve Tuttle did a GREAT article on the Gadsden Flag, and dedicated a paragraph to me.

 The article can be seen here

 I am goign to rattle some cages Monday, by calling the HOA managment company, and possibly their attorney to see what is going on.

 More to come....

Meeting tonight

Well, I showed up to the meeting, and had my legal counsel with me. The heads turned when I walked through the double doors with a guy in a suit carrying a briefcase.

 The look on the board members faces, along with the community manager was PRICELESS.

 There were about 8 other homeowners there, and they all started asking if they thought "the flag guy" would show. That was my cue to introduce myself. We chatted side bar from the yet to start meeting, and every homeowner openly voiced their support for me.

 Meeting was called to order, and quickly ended due to no quorum. We did not meet the 35 homeowners. The board and management company cut out QUICK. A couple homeowners wanted to ask questions, and they were shot down.

 I have a feeling the HOA will have their counsel at the next meeting.

Interesting sidenote, seems they have updated my account on the association website. They have  closed the issue with the flag, and have opened up a architectural design request and stated I must submit a design request for the flag, please do so asap.

 Does THIS mean they have caved?

Hey guys

Well, tomorrow night is the annual meeting and election. I will be in attendance, but I am not sure if I am going to vote.

 The "secret ballot" the association mailed out CLEARLY had my name, and lot # on the envelope.

 Not REAL secret if you ask me.

 But, none the less, I will be attending the meeting. I will update as soon as its over if anything good happens.

more to come...

The latest

Nothing new over the labor day weekend. My attorney was contacted by the HOA attorney late last week, and they stated "no action will be taken until after the annual board of directors meeting and election". What this means, I have no clue. Will they not fine me until the new board is in place? Will they re-present the issue to the new board to have them vote on it?  I know the annual meeting to elect board members is later this month.

I did notice on the association website, there was a executive meeting of the board of directors (meeting not open to the general homeowners) on Thursday of last week. That seems to been called out of the blue, because it wasnt on the calendar of events, then all of a sudden it was...Hmmmm??

The one thing I DO know is, according to the association website, I am set to start receiving fines for flying the Gadsden as of 9/5/10. The first seems to be $25.00. Will I actually receive a fine? We shall see

 So I think we are at a stand still. Do not think for a moment I have let up on my side of this fight. Everyday I get another person who says they stand behind me, another small donation to help with my attorney fee's, and great companies like, Phoenix Firearms, and FrontSight who donate time and items for raffles.

 more to come....


I have secured some nice donations from Dont Tread On Me clothing and Frontsight Training to use in a raffle. I cant express my thanks enough to these two fine companies who want to help.

Phoenix Firearms has also stepped up and set out a donation jar, so if you are local in Phoenix, and need anything firearm related, please see Mont over at Phoenix Firearms.

 If you would like to buy a raffle ticket, email me at I have a third party involved to run the raffle. i will give you details
