Homeowners Association: Veteran Can’t Build Furniture For Military Families In Need

NEVADA COUNTY (CBS13) — A war veteran who builds furniture in his garage and gives it to military families in need could be forced to shut down the saws.

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.

The new mandate cuts deep, as he’s been building cabinets and dressers for a decade, donating most to military families.

POLL: Do you believe the United States government is beginning to resemble a totalitarian regime?

“Everyone who received my furniture or responsible for dispersing it gave me this gift and it’s something I’ll treasure forever,” he said holding a photo.

He builds to help make a better life for families who have very little.

“I don’t make a profit. The money I spend is my own money, my own time and talents and I build it to give to the Beale [Air Force Base],” he said.

While I applaud Mr. Kocher's activities, he should have realized that in buying into a community with a "homeowners' association" he was giving up his freedom to do with his property as he wished.  I have never lived in a "homeowners' association" community myself - and would never do so - but friends and acquaintances have.  And it seems that in most - if not all - cases, the "associations" are invariably controlled by the most petty, dictatorial, power-mongering individuals in the community.  But!  When you buy in, you accept this. And this in addition to the normal constraints placed by the city/county.   Time to move?

OR gather your neighbors and dissolve the HOA!

Just like the business' should "dissolve" the labor unions!!!

this is the new America, freedom lost many years ago,,, 

this is why I do not live in a property with a association, 

city restrictions are bad enough . 

time to restore property ownership and freedoms to America . for a start.

After listening to my parents recount nightmares with their home owners association, I bought a house last summer with that being my #1 proviso, no homeowners association. I think they're on their way out...Semper Fi Nam 66-67

Those of us that follow the actions of our leaders knew in 08 what was about to happen to this country.  The liberal socialist democrats have taken over. Remember Joe McCarthy was going after the communist in this country and was stopped by ignorance of the people. Top leaders from both parties are to blame along with many ill informed voters. This man probably pissed off  one of his anti-American neighbors so they went after his kindness to military. Lets get behind this gentleman and bury this association for good.

Where's MY America? Please, someone, give me another cup of TEA!

for the most are run by persons that feel they have a right to rule their small
community. They also have family members working directly or contracting for
the HOA. They make rules and change existing rules to fit their whims. This is
a rare occasion where I believe the State government should rain in the HOAs
with laws that limit their power and should also give the home owners recourse
when they feel the HOA has gone to far in their power. Contact your state
officials and press then to act.

Time to take the home owners association down piece by piece starting with a huge law suit.

 I  for one would never live where their is a homeowners Assoc. and i will fight like hell to keep them out, Their bad news they clame it benifets every one, but the truth is they  only benifet a few. And they make your life a liveing hell. They regulate ,and limit every faset of your life. They are No better than Big goverment with over reaching power . why would freemen and woman do this to themselves . It makes no sence at least not to me .I love Freedom to much. and this is  a shame.

HOA's in housing are the same as unions in business; good for the progressives in charge and the demoncrap party, but very bad for patriots and other ordinary citizens!!!

Amen to that Robert

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
