Story about an HOA and a Bluebird

This happened back in the early 2000's, thought you all might enjoy this.


My niece lives south of Ft. Worth. Her neighbor is a scout leader and bought a Bluebird to haul the scouts to summer camp. Nice guy, always offering help to her. So the HOA in he neighborhood was apparently one of those typical retired, walking around with a copy of the rules, nothing better to do HOA Nazi.

He approached her neighbor about his bus and said he had 30 days to move it or be fined $50 a day.

She noticed when the 30 days came due, he hadn't moved the boat. She saw him is his front yard and asked, "What are you going to do about your bus" For the record, she had no problem with the bus, she thought he was a great guy for buying it out of his own pocket for the scouts.

He says "what bus, you mean my boat". This REALLY confused my niece who replies "Boat?".

Long story short, her neighbor can also read the rules, he noticed a very vague description of "Water Pleasure craft". SO, he took a 3/4" piece of plywood, screwed it to the back of the bus and put a 50 HP merc outboard on the back. When the HOA Nazi approached him, he said "That's not a boat, it would sink". The neighbor replied, "Prove it".

Nazi was voted out at the next meeting.....lol.

Using Nazi to describe anything or anyone outside of Hitler's Germany is pretty offensive. This is not a PC comment either. Comparing an over-zealous HOA officer to what was done during Hitler's time is way off the mark.

Wow and here I thought it was a fairly common descriptor of anyone that uses that type tactic to try and force everyone else to their view point .

Not everything thee Nazi's did revolved around the holocaust They also used intimidation and threats to keep everyone else in line .



“ First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

written in 1946, list the communists, incurable patients, Jews or Jehovah's Witnesses, and civilians in countries occupied by Nazi Germany. In all versions, the impact is carefully built up, by going from the "smallest, most distant" group to the largest, Jewish, group, .... and then finally to himself as a by then outspoken critic of Nazism. Niemöller made the cardinal "who cares about them," clear in his speech

This is the reason you have to stand up to HOA officers the police when they are wrong and politicians .

The Nazi's taught current politicians many lessons
The chief one is he who controls education and the media control the population . Faux news channel is a prime one . Another is that by changing things in small steps most never realize they have lost freedoms .

I'm not so sure they started with the socialists since that is part of their name. National Socialist German Workers' Party. Maybe when they ran out people to brutalize.
