Bush Signs Bill Protecting the Right to Fly the Flag

This was a very rational bill that was a compromise between homeowners’ associations and condominium associations that worry about the values of homes depreciating, and the rights of Americans to present their country’s flag. They can place reasonable limits on how and when to present the flag but they cannot stop you from presenting it.

It’s great to get a bill through the process and it takes a long time to get it through the bureaucracy. You just assume that people can fly the flag but then you learn that this isn’t the case and we felt in this case legislation was needed to solve the problem.
