Guys, fascinating thread about CC&R's but where the hell were you legal 
pundits back in 1982 when I was being bullied about by the Lake of the Pines 
CC&R Design Committee (near Sacramento, CA) over one stinking 2-mtr vertical 
tacked to the roof????

I also got into trouble with the Design (re: Socialist) Committee about my 
fence, about leaving my old truck parked in the driveway, about the color I 
chose to paint the house.......I can not believe we Americans who are 
supposedly rugged individuals would ever put up with this Socialist Crap, 
especially the Conservative Right, but we do!!!?

Three-meter satelite dishs (remember those?) were dotted all over the 
3700-home subdivision cuz they were approved by the "Committee" and those 
that ran the Committee.

I did what I had to: Sell out and move to an unincorporated area of Placer 
County where there's no stinkin' CC&R's!!

I''m no lawyer, but to me the bottom line, these rules are nothing more than 
a civil contract between an organization and an individual so I don't really 
think we want the FCC (re: Government) involved in civil disputes. In my 
opinion, petitioning Congress to enact a law that will protect our rights is 
the proper, if not very lengthy and difficult, way to go.....then defend our 
rights with some protection.

Good luck to all, this CC&R crap is only going to get worse in this Country 
if we don't stand up to it and fight for our rights!

And, oh yes, living in non-CC&R Country does come with some peril: The 
neighbor next door a really nice fellow, but a slob and a car collector -- 
at last count he has 7 cars (and parts) parked wherever there's an open 
spot, like the front yard!! But hey, no one has ever said squat (except my 
wife, she hates them) about my antennas, towers.....etc.....

My 2-cents 73....../k6sdw
