CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (CBS13)— An injured veteran of the war in Afghanistan has been told to take down the American flag she has flying from her balcony by her apartment’s management company.

Jen Elliot was shocked when she found a notice on her front door. It’s from her property management company asking her to remove an American flag from her balcony, along with some other items.

“I was very upset and very offended by it,” she said.“We live in America. Why shouldn’t we fly our flag proudly?”

Elliot says she immediately checked her lease to see if she was in fact violating any rules.

“It does say you cannot have flags, plants or wind chimes. However, it does say that the American flag can be displayed within the laws of the state and proper flag etiquette. And mine is.”

After CBS13 went to the property manager, the rental company called Elliot to say she can fly her flag—it just can’t stay where it’s at. The flag can’t be screwed into the siding of her balcony.

“I’ve lost six people in the past three months, and I know they are going through a tough time. I fly that for them.”

She was a specialist serving as a heavy-wheeled vehicle operator and a .50-caliber gunner. She says she flies the flag to remind her of her unit overseas that she can’t be a part of anymore after she was injured.

“I suffered from PVI, which is a traumatic brain injury. I was blown off into the wall, and I was unconscious for a couple of minutes. And I still have PTSD from that.”

Elliot says she’s moving out unless they let her keep the flag the way it is.

“I’ll take my plants and wind chimes down, it that’s what you want. But I’m not taking that flag down.”

The property management company says they are meeting with Jen face-to-face on Monday to discuss their options and how they can come to a resolution.
Yeah

Reminds me of a new show on television about how the brain plays tricks on us. Last night something was said about how it's too hard to make our brains believe something it doesn't want to see.
I had to pause it and look at my husband and say, "Liberals...that explains it."
Right! It's too had for your brain to comprehend the truth! Did your husband say, " time for a stiff one"?

Tea Party fight democracy
The same day, last month, that the Supreme Court struck down a key section of the Voting Rights Act, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott declared that Texas laws that had been stopped by the Act—because courts found them to be discriminatory—would immediately go into effect. On Friday, Attorney General Eric Holder struck back.
In the color-blind wish-world of Chief Justice Roberts and his four conservative colleagues on the Supreme Court, Jim Crow-era restrictions on minority voting represent a sad, historical curiosity, unrelated to modern reality. Surveying the landscape from their marble aerie, these five Justices decided in Shelby County v. Holder that requiring the pre-clearance of election-law changes in certain jurisdictions, a provision of Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act, was now unconstitutional. Congress had passed the Act in 1965 in response to the broad denial of the right to vote; as recently as 2006, an overwhelming majority of Congress found that it was still necessary. The Court simply disagreed:“Nearly 50 years later, things have changed dramatically.”
It's going to be interesting if the popular vote and the electoral votes will be in sync the next go 'round.
Yeah

Seems the right wing extremists are the ones crying and complaining all the time.

Yes, 14 years as an MT - take or give a few months.
Yes, raising my own daughter after having her late in life was more important to me than a career and someone else raising her and, yes, working from home in another career with flexible hours made that possible.
No, my daughter was not taxpayer funded at the age of 10 and still isn't. If you don't like student loans, take it up with the government.
Being a homeowner for 25 years, townhome living suits us just fine. God willing, we will buy a home outright with hubby's 401k when he retires. Assuming, of course, Obama doesn't take that from us too.

Now what is your problem exactly?
"Obama doesn't take that from us too"? So, he took your home of 25 years?

You're truly "crazy"

Funny. The cons here keep pushing Benghazi, the IRS and whatever else they can dream up.

And most of the posts come in the form of a question rather than anything factual.

But I enjoy it! It shows there's really nothing else for them to talk or complain about! Pretty soon, I'm sure the birthers will have to jump back in again.

You're partisanship is ridiculous at times. Hayes, although misguided in his politics IMO, is a very intelligent man who makes very good arguments. When I've watched him I counter his arguments to myself so I don't feel the need to make up stupid sht about him.
Oddly enough, galts heo is big fat Limbaugh, who is a closet queen

Game the system? Is that what progressive groups have been doing all this time?
How is a lawful tax exemption to participate in the political process waste, fraud and abuse?
Is that what liberal groups have also been doing?
Teabaggers aren't that bright:

Its no stretch to my imagination that they didn't understand that to qualify for tax exemption their principle purpose could NOT be electioneering.

Very good weekend, thanks.
How many jobs aren't being created by Obama refusing to build the pipeline? It would be great if he actually created jobs that would benefit all of us and the country.
But remember those shovel ready jobs he promised? And remember how that ended up being a private joke between him and Emmelt when Obama admitted they never really existed?
Obama wants more government workers than private sector workers. So either he thinks the money for all those salaries and benefits grows on trees or it's by design since, obviously, there isn't going to be enough money from taxpayers in the private sector when everyone is working part-time jobs and that, of course, is where the money actually comes from.
Take your pick. I choose the latter.
Funny, government employment is down during the Obama administration while the private sector has added over 7 million.
