OL’ GLORY – FLYING PROUD?
October 13, 2017
May be I’m old
fashioned, but for me the NATIONAL ANTHEM and
OL’ GLORY are our nation’s pride and should be
respected by everybody who is a US citizen.
No matter what kind
of politics some folks may disagree with, disrespecting our flag
and our national anthem is unacceptable. PERIOD!
And if some totally overpaid sports “heroes” feel otherwise,
they should go elsewhere and leave this country for greener
pastures – since they obviously don’t like it here.
A few weeks ago some
German soccer fans whistled during the playing of the national
anthem – much to the dismay of a wide majority of Germans. They
blasted these overeager “fans”. But the real difference was made
by the media: The German media condemned these fans, ridiculed
them and let them know that their behavior was unacceptable.
And that’s the
difference: The media in this country makes these people who
clearly disrespect our flag and our national anthem heroes and
applauds their actions.
But what else can we
expect from our “esteemed” media? They cheer on protesters who
burn cars, destroy other peoples’ property and try to explain to
us that all this is protected by the FIRST AMENDMENT
RIGHT: FREE SPEECH!
Not sure where these
“reporters” went to school – or where they get their wisdom
from. For me destroying other peoples’ property is a criminal
act and should be punished accordingly – with jail time!
Some years ago our
organization fought hard for owners’ right to fly “Ol’ Glory” on
their property in homeowners’ associations. Please see the
articles under the headline of “THE
BATTLE OVER OL’ GLORY”.
succeeded: In court and in the Florida legislature!
AM PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN CITIZEN – and I have nothing but
disgust for people who disrespect our flag and our national

CCFJ works on legislation to help owners living in
associations. He moved to
in 1995 - hoping to retire. He moved into a HOA, where the
developer cheated the homeowners and used the association dues
for his own purposes. End of retirement!
CCFJ was born in the year 2000, when some owners met in
- finding out that power is only in numbers. Bergemann was a
member of Governor Jeb Bush's HOA Task force in 2003/2004.
The organization has two websites to inform interested
homeowners and condo owners:
News Website: http://www.ccfj.net/.
Educational Website: http://www.ccfjfoundation.net/.
We think that only owners can really represent owners, since all
service providers surely have a different interest! We are
trying to create owner-friendly laws, but the best laws are
useless without enforcement. And enforcement is totally lacking
