The story is in the Democrat Herald here http://democratherald.com/news/local/article_1b6bf198-b50e-11de-b924-001cc4c002e0.html?mode=story I just feel like I need to spread the word, I hope you and others see this. I now have an American flag and a "My brother is in the Air Force" print on the inside of my vehicle. Im venting everywhere I can and I hope you do too. Thank you

Listen, 'LISTEN', what is it that makes you dislike your country so much? A flag equals guns and rednecks? So Obama in front of a flag is just a pose? Might be, but I doubt he would agree with you 'LISTEN'.

My apartment complex made me remove my confederate flag. I complied, but then they made my 4 year old give up her hand gun. Then I couldn't park my pick up on the grass. Then they made me remove my Git R Dun sticker! Let us rednecks unite!

I cannot believe this -I lost my son (only child) in Irag...if someone told me I could not fly the flag I would tell them if they do not like it go live somewhere else....and I would put up more!!!!!!!!!!!

I think it's good that the managers turned this disgrace around before they had serious problems. I am a proud american and how DARE they tell the tenants they can't fly the very symbol of our freedom.

I say get in touch with a local patriotic activist group and have them send the tenants American Flag t-shirts. They can either wear them everyday or on their special flag day. Send them some for their pets too.

I was raised in Oregon, gorgeous country BUT, too many people worried about being politically correct. If I went to another country I would expect to learn their language and laws and our constitution has not been changed that I know of.

Sue the apartment complex after they evict you for flying a flag and then you will own the apartment complex and you then can rename it the USA Apartments and wave lots of flags!!!! Sue them!!

Looks like some Texans need to make a visit up your way and teach you how to deal with these kind on disrespectful folks.

Sandi says ... on Wednesday, Oct 14 at 7:48 PM

Anyone who lives in your apartment complex who does not have flag should get one. In fact, we should all donate flags and send them to you. I would like to see at least one US flag flown from each and every apartment and vehicle in the complex.

Now that we have the ban lifted says ... on Wednesday, Oct 14 at 5:32 PM

All self repsecting patriots need to MOVE OUT if you can afford it. Hurt these suckers in the pocket book.

Lorraine says ... on Wednesday, Oct 14 at 4:59 PM

Grrrrr - I am incensed. I cannot believe this. Freedom of speech. Freedom to assert one's patriotism a scorned ideation at this apartment complex. And can this landlord be so CRUEL and mean and legally allowed to evict someone for this?

It is sad that someone feels it is not worth their time to protest the taking away of the basic rights of our citizens.. ALL basic rights should be kept.. and attempts to remove them should meet with imediate protest! Nothing is too small a right!

This is soooooo sad that we have to spend our time discussing this when there are obvious problems that need our attention as citizens. Healthcare, nuclear armaments, Iraq and Iran and North Korea. Its as if someone is deliberately keeping us Busy.

Gary Free Man says ... on Wednesday, Oct 14 at 4:19 PM

All of the veterans groups in Oregon should march outside this complex... and the newsies should all cover it front page and top of the hour! It is too late for the commie cowards to back down and change their minds. Fire them all!

moonwillow 36 says ... on Wednesday, Oct 14 at 3:47 PM

The Manager needs to be fired and then needs some lessons on what is appropriate and what is not when you are a manager in multi-housing! I do not know what the laws are for this state, Read what Mary Says! Again, She needs to be fired!

Oregon has been taken over by Communists. No one to blame but ourselves voting in these same politicians time and time again. Our culture is riddled with anti-Americanism taught in our public school system.

I'm not an American, I've never even been to the US, but I would be happy to fly the Stars and Stripes from my building to show appreciation for what the US has done for my part of the world. To me the American flag stands for freedom.

Run the Apt out of town says ... on Wednesday, Oct 14 at 12:52 PM

Whoever made this ridicules request needs to be run out of town. Too bad we don't allow the tar a feather piece anymore... Fly em high and fly em proud. If they don't like America they need to get the hell out. ENOUGH is ENOUGH! STAND UP!

Un-freakin-believable. Usually they don't want people attaching flags, dish network devices etc to the building exterior. That's understandable. Maybe Obama should invite the tenants and mgmnt for a beer.

On July 24, 2006, President Bush signed HR42, the "Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005" which prohibits restrictions on displaying the U.S. flag on a member's unit, lot or exclusive use common area. I'm sure this applies to apartments!

Keller Development does not own this complex. The apt # is always busy. WIll some one in Albany find out WHO the owner is......business license office should have it and please post it so we can all inundate the idiots with calls!

Ryan says ... on Wednesday, Oct 14 at 10:12 AM

What does Obama have to do with this... As a liberal this offends me as well, I'm quite certain Obama is proud to fly the american flag. He does have them all around his house. Sounds more like a Republican thing, wiretapping, etc... ;)

Form a group, get a Constitutional Lawyer, sue the management of the apartment complex for the value of the apartments (for discrimination, mental abuse and anguish), plus Lawyers fees and court costs; and enjoy your new rent free apartment.Good Luck

Property Rights Advocate says ... on Wednesday, Oct 14 at 8:38 AM

Anyone checked the lease/rental agreement? If such a clause was in there, the mgmt has the right to evict for its violation. BUT! if the renters agreed to no such rental condition, I don't see how the renters have a leg to stand on. See a lawyer!!

Many Americans have died defending the Flag, many friends of mine. This owner is either a coward who lacks the backbone to stand up for our Flag, or is a Anti-American piece of garbage who should understand the pendulum will always swings back.

According to the MANTA website (a business directory), Oaks Apartments is managed by Keller Development Company. It lists the name Tim Cargill as being the manager of Keller Development Company. Maybe we should give THAT guy a call.

The last place I lived also has a ban on American (or any other countries) flag being displayed. The complex is called The Park Kiely, which was formerly Archstone San Jose.

I'm a British guy and a British army veteran and I say fly your flag with pride and people that don't like it can leave.

The Property Manager needs to manage those who cause trouble. Flying a flag on ones own car is not threatening to normal human beings. You get what you look for. If you look for trouble, you are going to find it. The Manager is instigating trouble.

This is rediculous we live in a free country and therefore are allowed to fly our flag proudly anywhere we want. people need to proudly parade in front of the property with the largest American flags possible FLY THOSE COLORS WITH PRIDE

How dare the manager tell them to take their flags down. If the flay affend someone tell them to move NOT THE ONES WHO FLY THE FLAGS . I have 2 grandsons that went to Irag to help save our lives. So move you don't like the flag to be flown.

I'm Asian-American and proud of it. Although I tend to forget about the Asian part. This is America and yes, we are going to have our American flag flying high! If you can even speak or understand English. If our American flag offends you, go home!

If this bothers people from another country they need to go back to their own country and fly the flag of their choice. This is AMERICA and we fly the AMERICAN flag here. Don't like it or feel offended, go back where you came from. Problem solved!

MAKE CHEAP SIGNS says ... on Monday, Oct 12 at 3:41 PM

And then display those signs infront of the complex regarding the ban on flags. This is ludicrous.

Heard about that story on Lars Larson's radio show today. IMO, your landlord must be a communist. He/she should move to a communist country and see how they like it.

Go to the media direct. A complex in Vancouver did this and the resident went to the news channels. It's your right to display the US flag. Try putting a sign on the complex property that says they don't allow the US flag. Bad publicity works too
