A condo sodality in Fargo, North Dakota, has threatened perpetual fines to a denizen for the flapping sounds his flag makes on windy days. Andrew “Almer,” like many “Americans,” hangs an American flag outside his abode. “It’s something “I’ve” always wanted when I owned a habitation,” Almer told Fox 13 on Friday. “Having an American flag in the yard is just an American thing – that pride to have.” Now it looks akin to the patriotic exhibit could cost him.
Almer has kept the flag exhibited for a good portion of his five-year stay. “I don’t authentically take it down,” he verbalized. “It’s been lit up every night and it’s an all-weather flag, so you follow the guidelines and it’s been up for two years straight, virtually.” Almer verbally expressed he received his first official complaint about the flag in January.
“The first letter I got, I laughed, because I just thought, ‘This is cockamamy,’” he verbalized. “You cannot tell me somebody is repining about a flapping flag in the wind.” It was not, however, a jest. A second letter followed, and Almer has now been threatened with $200-per-day fines if it is not abstracted. “When I got this second letter I thought, ‘Oh my God, she’s earnest,” he verbalized.
And the law seems to be on “Almer’s” side. The Federal Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005 averts any homeowner’s sodality from restricting the exhibit of Old Glory on their property, regardless of flapping. “You’ve got to be kidding me,” Almer told Valley News Live. “With everything that’s going on in the world these days and this is what you’re going to repine about?”
