So this is how I take over the world. Appointment by bureaucrats in closed-door session. Well, you don’t have to do any fund-raisers this way so that’s good, at least.
I have spared you the gory details, but I had a controversy with my Homeowners Association. They decided that the place we’ve kept our trash can for a decade is so good they would fine us $100 if we kept using it. I went to the next meeting to complain and ended up with a pinky-swear from the lady who drives around “inspecting” that she’ll ignore my trash can going forward, and the President says he’s willing to make case-by-case deals with other complainants.
Oh, and I was elected to be a member of the HOA board, I think. Somebody was retiring and that would mean they didn’t have enough to conduct business sometimes. If I’d been on there a year earlier, and the ex-board member who also showed up to complain hadn’t left, the rule would have been voted down. Well, next time, the insanity will have at least one voice of reason against it.
First the HOA board, then on to the White House?
