This one is so far off the end, they dictated that the McDonalds 
franchise open with all "earth tones" in lieu of the normal colors. 
McDonalds didn't win their battle either!

There are two particular neighborhoods within about 12 miles from me 
that ARE like that!  One won't even allow the kids to have a basketball 
goal "visible", nor would it let the residents decorate their mailboxes 
to match the Holiday Season.

I made sure when I retired from Uncle Sam that I bought a home with NO 
HOAs or covenants!

My son is in one in Georgia.  They blasted him for his son's car leaking 
oil on the driveway.

This garbage has to go!  Let them go create a dictator neighborhood 
floating out at sea!
