    So, what is the reason for this posting? Am I supposed to be concerned because they disregard HOA rules that probably were clearly disclosed when Newman bought the home? Or is this some sort of political statement?

      Not a political statement. I just found it mildly amusing. Also, sometimes I post articles that will have more meaning with future posts I know are in the works, such as homeowners association news. So stay tuned!
