The YouTube video has been removed. Looks like the city is winning so far.

Re: Florida Man Could Lose His Home For Having Long Grass!!


HOA doesn't like this guy's pickup truck. Upwards of $3000 in fines so far, and threatening to foreclose on his house if he does not pay. Lucky he didn't decide to build a real rat-rod.


Rules don't allow vehicles with "moderate to severe body damage". I think he would win in court --- there is no body damage -- that's all paint damage.

My folk's place is in snootsville, their HOA doesn't allow them to park in their driveway overnight (includes golf carts, 4-wheelers, trailers, RVs, motorcycles, and even lawn mowers,) they're not allowed to do any exterior house or yard work without approval (to include needed repairs like the roof,) they can't upgrade/replace their air conditioner unit without approval, can't have the trash or recycle can's outside more than 6 hours in-total, they're not allowed to leave kid or dog toys outside, have to have approval to get any pet that might go outside the house, exterior of the house must "look nice," and they can't ever rent the house out nor have roomates/kids/grandkids/tenants living with them.

They do all that to ensure it stays a snooty retirement neighborhood.

It is a fire hazard and it provides habitat for mice and rats and it affects the fool's neighbors. The individual is being obstinate and whoever is forcing him to clean up his act has my support. Whatever happened to the concept of trying to be a "good neighbor".

Individual freedom only works when individuals exercise a measure of self control and with all the mass shootings we know that many white men in particular are unable or unwilling to do so.

You urban folks are weird about some stuff, JS.

Like what's wrong with letting the critters have some land too? We have shrews, marmots, moose, bears, and even wolves sharing our yard - as long as you let em know you're coming outta the house they're good neighbors.

Methinks Calson is looking to get some flames on this thread? Clearly hasn't read anything but the thread title.

Re: Florida Man Could Lose His Home For Having Long Grass!!


This is yet another situation that demonstrates that you can not actually own real property in the US.

If the local govt can 'forclose' on your property for unpaid fines, then YOU dont actually own it.

A 3rd party can not 'take back' what they dont own!

You cant foreclose on your neighbors house for X reason, unless you 'own it'

Yet, dont pay the fines, dont pay the 'taxes' they take your house.

And people call this a free country? LOL

Sure this is a free country. You're free to purchase real property. You're also free to not pay lawful taxes or fines on the property and lose it. The gov't doesn't take it, they sell it and you're free to cash the check that results from the difference between what the property sold for minus whatever legal societal obligations you failed to meet plus legal and administrative expenses.

In America, your freedom looks exceptional compared to others on the planet. If you live in China and own a house, then not mowing your lawn might be deemed detrimental to society. You could loose the house, be charged with a crime, sent to a labor camp, and even banned from ever owning property again.

I don't know about China. I just don't care for people who think they can operate a junkyard or not maintain a blighted property and defend their antisocial behavior by wrapping themselves in the flag.
