HOA vs local zoning
http://www.city-data.com/forum/charlotte/1610...
this makes the general claim that the HOA can be more restrictive, but I am pretty sure in CT this isnt always the case
See the cases out of Illinois where HOA rules that forbade placement of objects in corridors were ruled not to apply to mezuzah.

rather than give you court cases, here is a pretty good synopsis from wikipedia (as much as I dislike wiki, the footnotes will take you to the correct place for further info).

what about subdivision? HAve you ever seen a case where the HOA outlawed subdivision but local zoning allowed it, and the owners were therefore allowed?

are you talking about an HOA telling the owner of a lot that they can't divide it?

No, the hoa is agreed upon, consent.
First when it is created the home owner has to agree and then when ownership is transferred it is a deed restriction.
The buyer is fully aware of the hoa.
OK, but what about the HOA (of which you are now a willing member) votes to do something (or make a new rule) with which you disagree?

Perhaps they decide by a majority vote that no one can wash their cars in their own driveways anymore.

What would you say then?

First offense -$100 fine.

What say you now?

Yes, if it is for the greater good. There are no absolute rights, remember?

And who defines OK? Surely not "the bible" so it is a matter of interpretation/democracy.

My virginity mistake

I took an abstinence pledge hoping it would ensure a strong marriage. Instead, it led to a quick divorce

The perils of a voluntary society, of course if you are negotiating a contract you should be smart enough to include an out clause.
One is included in the US constitution , not that it is a valid contract or applicable to anyone.
An hoa is an example of a voluntary society but in a true voluntary society one would pick and choose who to do business with.
You would think one that signs a contract would determine a term with an expiration date.
Yes, with great freedom comes great responsibility.

Without Mommy and Daddy (gov't) dictating our every move, we have to think from time to time.

The perils include planning for one's financial needs in retirement, negotiating financing/contracts etc.

I do actually believe in personal responsibility.

Gov't is just the name for those things we've collectively (via majority or supermajority via representation) decided to do together.

Therefore we ourselves grant rights, responsibilities, and privileges.

We created our own government. Built into that system are the mechanisms for modifying, contracting, or expanding it.

I don't believe it would work.

And it's not the form of government we have choses for ourselves.

We trumpet our form of gov't around the world - which I think is overblown.

I don't personally believe in "American Exceptionalism."

Do you?

Depends on the context.

If the property holder has millions in unpaid debts....and the creditor is attempting to make himself whole again...then, yes - it is ok if done within the law.

Recall I mentioned personal responsibility (and accountability).

Every nation-state, if they have any pride, believes in this for themself. So it is nothing exceptional, IMO

This 12 year old has far more intelligence than you can ever have.

I'm surprised that you've failed to comprehend the significance of the mind-matter model that can explain everything there's to be explained in the universe.

Anyway, carry on with your silly with the dunces on this forum.

I have never seen a case exactly on point, but I can see how it could happen. Speaking solely of Illinois, while the city can set minimum standards for subdivision improvements (lot size, building height, lot coverage, etc.), developers are permitted to set more stringent standards in the declaration of subdivision. Developers set higher standards to keep home values to a certain level. Before the advent of HOA, someone in the subdivision had to sue to enforce the declaration. Now with HOA, there is a policing body.

The Illinois Supreme Court just handed down an opinion that those who buy in a subdivision with a declaration, HOA, and HOA rules have agreed to abide by those pronouncements. It's a contractual relationship. Some attorney got pulled over for speeding by a rent-a-cop hired by the HOA. He litigated over the question of whether the HOA could establish a private police force. The IL Supreme Court said that since the attorney was a homeowner in the subdivision, he agreed by contract to abide by the HOA rules. http://www.state.il.us/court/Opinions/Supreme...

You've failed to understand the context and meaning of the line - "quality is inversely proportional to quantity".

Let's analyze the logic to show that you're wrong.

Here goes:

We clearly have 2 distinct sets of people in the world -

1) The intellectual elites who're as expected very few in number.

2) The masses who constitute the majority.

So, in this sense, when we talk of the masses who comprise the overwhelming majority of people, we invariably observe a dramatic drop in quality (whereas the intellectual elites who're in a minority constitute the high quality people in the world).

Now, let's push the analysis further.

The intellectual elites are always in a minority but usually it's seen that whatever they think, say or do is usually of a consistently high quality and so logically speaking we set up a direct proportion for this relationship - a top notch intellectual is highly productive and so the number of his high quality thoughts, words and deeds number a lot and as these are consistently of a high quality thus the output (number of high quality thoughts, words and deeds) of a top-end intellectual is high and since these are usually of a high quality thus there exists a direct relationship (proportion) between the two.

So, to reiterate the point, we see a direct proportionality between the large number of an intellectual's thoughts, words and deeds and the high quality of the same.

So, you're wrong in your reasoning as usual.

ROFL.
