I saw this story about the home with a peace wreath on our local news.Â So much for freedom of speech or just plain human freedom.Â This neighborhood association has a little too much power and has gone overboard on their authority to homeowners.Â I thought everyone wanted PEACE?Â The next sign I would put up would be a “For Sale” sign.Â I surely would not want to live in a neighborhood with an association that can control your freedom of speech and tell you not to want peace in your life.
They calculated the wreath to cost the resident $1,000 in fines for the thought of peace on her door.Â This sure sounds like a very uptight neighborhood that would rather be throwing their kids on the battleground than having them here at home safe for the holidays.Â The neighborhood association controls over 200 homes in the Denver, Colorado area.Â We sure hear lots of crazy news coming from the conservative nut jobs in Denver.Â I bet the tourism takes a hit when no one wants to vacation in such a uptight, neo-conservative, hypocritical area.
The funniest part of the story is that some residents believed the PEACE symbol was a symbol of Satan.Â Yes, a peace symbol looking like Satan.Â I am amused that people are so ignorant.Â Peace is actually one of the symbols of the holiday spirit.Â I remember my grandmother used to have NOEL, PEACE, LOVE, JESUS, among other words in her Christmas decorations which were spelled out in little squares.Â These neo-conservatives are so crazy they actually think the devil is peace.Â It makes you think these neo-conservatives really are the devil hiding in disguise of Â â€œChristiansâ€.

DENVER â€“ A homeowners association in southwestern Colorado has threatened to fine a resident $25 a day until she removes a Christmas wreath with a peace sign that some say is an anti-Iraq war protest or a symbol of Satan.
