Sticking It To The HOA Man
Posted on 12.24.11 by Danny Glover @ 6:27 pm

I decided long ago never to buy a home on property controlled by an association of nib-noses who love to impose elitist rules on others. As an enlightened being, I don’t decorate our property with tire planters or cars jacked up on blocks, but the redneck in me cherishes the freedom to do so.

That’s why I like to see people who do choose to live within developments managed by homeowners associations stick it to the HOA man when he goes on a ridiculous and unjustifiable power trip. Overbearing rules usually have loopholes that are ripe for exploitation.

A Facebook friend found just such a loophole during the holidays when her HOA decided to play Grinch. Her understated Christmas decorations — two red bows on the porch pillars and lanterns in the lawn — apparently violated the letter of the association’s lame laws about “seasonal decorations.” The HOA ordered her to remove them.

She didn’t face any fines for the alleged breach, so she decided to keep the decorations in place. But the warning letter from the HOA irritated her and her husband so much that they decided to protest by also decorating their car in Christmas lights. “There is NOTHING in the rules prohibiting decorating your car with Christmas lights,” she said.

Take that, HOA!

Branding The Federal Pig
Posted on 03.04.09 by Danny Glover @ 10:46 am

The Obama administration has released a new logo for the pork-laden stimulus bill written into law last month. It’s a perfect target for satirical fun.

Michelle Malkin is promoting the work of the Photoshoppers. The original Obama logo is on the left, and the best Photoshop so far is on the right.

Barack Obama: Worth A Million Bucks
Posted on 01.17.09 by Danny Glover @ 4:26 pm

Or something like that. As Instapundit says, “Prepare now for the coming post-stimulus hyperinflation with these million-dollar bills featuring Barack Obama’s picture! Why wait until the government gets around to issuing them in 2011, when they’ll buy a single measly gallon of gas?”

The Photoshop Stop
Posted on 12.19.08 by Danny Glover @ 6:03 am

One of the things I love most about living in a digital era is how today’s technological tools have opened the floodgates of graphical creativity, especially in the political arena. Rarely a day passes without someone Photoshopping a picture worth a thousand words.

I’m a big fan of Michelle Malkin because she not only features such images on her blog, she invites her loyal readers to create them. A case in point: the portrait of three auto industry pigs suckling at America’s teat.

Michelle published another awesome bailout-related image a few days ago, after President Bush coined this doozy of a phrase: “I’ve abandoned free-market principles to save the free-market system.” She aptly called it Bush’s political epitaph.

Let those two images serve as the launch of the “Photoshop Stop,” a new feature here at The Enlightened Redneck. I’ll post the most creative images from around the Web. They won’t always be political, and if they’re political, they won’t always be conservative. Liberals can be creative, too.

So if you see anything worthy of a plug in the “Photoshop Stop,” please e-mail links to danny-at-enlightenedredneck-dot-com.
