A military veteran has been making furniture in his home garage for over a decade and then donating it to needy military families.
But no longer. The housing overlords have ordered him to stop.
A homeowners association is telling Dennis Kocher he needs to close up shop after years of doing business, or he could be fined between $100 and $1,000.
“I may not paint, sand, cut wood or screw on the property at anytime,” he said.

Listening to Michelle Obama on 2014, one is amazed to find almost nothing about improving the economy. Maybe to Liberals raising the minimum wage and inflicting more lawsuits on employers establishing “equal pay” for men and women are considered helpful to the economy, but that won’t do anything for the labor participation rate except lower it even further. Even if these programs didn’t cause further unemployment, they would not help anyone get hired.
So all that is left is abortion and Read more [...]
Politico.com’s report on Madeline Albright demonstrates how the ruling class takes credit for talking “boldly” or “straightforwardly” about horrible situations that they themselves have created. And no matter what their record they always assume they are the most qualified to fix those situations. Usually I think the financial sector is the most powerful demonstration of this phenomenon where the people who caused the problems and had no clue about the problems are given unquestioning credit Read more [...]
Why would the IRS monitor sermons?
Let’s get real about the First Amendment and modern Pansex culture. The Bible teaches that marriage is between a man and woman and that there should be no sexual activity outside a marriage. Defining marriage as inclusive of two men, two women, a human and an animal, and a parent and child are all perversions of the meaning of marriage according to the Bible. And the Bible definitely forbids any and all sex with someone other than one's spouse. This is Read more [...]
Ahh, another day, another nation "enjoying the fruits" of American intervention.
The United States shut down its embassy in Libya on Saturday and evacuated its diplomats to neighboring Tunisia under U.S. military escort amid a significant deterioration in security in Tripoli as fighting intensified between rival militias, the State Department said.
"Due to the ongoing violence resulting from clashes between Libyan militias in the immediate vicinity of the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, we have temporarily Read more [...]
Good to know New York's crime is so minimal that the NYPD can waste... er, devote so many resources to chasing down an obvious prank or political statement.
From NBC – 4 New York City: “NYPD Running License Plates, Examining Cellphone Transmissions, Collecting DNA in Brooklyn Bridge White Flags Investigation.”
Investigators are running license plate numbers, scouring social media, examining cellphone transmissions and collecting DNA as part of their investigation into who climbed the Brooklyn Read more [...]
There is no debate we’re a country in transition. The only debate is what we’re actually transitioning to, and whether we’ll be better or worse as a people for it.
Such transitions challenge trusted traditions to prove they’re still relevant. Old alliances are tested. And folks tend to gravitate to new ideas quickly before they’re fully vetted, mainly because they’ve lost faith in the old ideas.
In the political arena, nowhere will this attempted paradigm shift be more apparent Read more [...]
From the National Journal: “The Government Is Cracking Down on School Bake Sales: States are trying to circumvent federal nutrition standards that would limit sugary foods at school fundraisers.”
Barely a month after federal regulations for school cafeterias kicked in, states are already pushing back.
Specifically, they're fighting nutrition standards that would considerably alter one of the most sacred rituals of the American public school system: bake sales.
Twelve states have established Read more [...]
Gee, I think I should make $100 an hour... just because I think I should. Does it matter whether my work produces that kind of economic value? Heck, of course not! Just like it doesn't for these whiners.
From Associated Press: “Fast food workers prepare to escalate wage demands.”
About 1,300 workers are scheduled to attend sessions Friday and Saturday at an expo center in Villa Park, Illinois, where they'll be asked to do "whatever it takes" to win $15-an-hour wages and a union, said Kendall Read more [...]
In our growing police state, the accused are always very stupid. No matter how outnumbered they are and how many guns are pointing at them, they always making—the phrase seems standardized now—“a quick movement to his waistband.” And—Pow!—we are left with bullet-riddled corpse that can’t offer any testimony to contradict the story of the Miami Dade police.
Even a man who had already dropped his firearm while fleeing, and thus had nothing in his waistband to grab, made this quick Read more [...]
The story of David Tyree is another signal to Christians that we are on the verge of a Homosexual thought control regime where anyone who refuses to think and speak the party line will be relegated to second-class citizenship (assuming nothing worse is done to them). Yesterday I wrote about a newspaper editor fired for being a Christian:
No, I’m not changing my mind about freedom of association. Of course a newspaper should be allowed to practice religious bigotry if they want to. But we live Read more [...]
Do Conservatives defend the police as an instinctive reaction? A. J. Delgado writes that they should stop: “It’s Time for Conservatives to Stop Defending the Police.”
Imagine if I were to tell you there is a large group of government employees, with generous salaries and ridiculously cushy retirement pensions covered by the taxpayer, who enjoy incredible job security and are rarely held accountable even for activities that would almost certainly earn the rest of us prison time. When there Read more [...]
