Just in case you weren’t sufficiently disgusted by yesterday’s post on the out of control, hyper-regulation rampant throughout our government, here’s another one.

HYPOLUXO, Fla. — A U.S. Marine who served overseas in Iraq has returned home in Hypoluxo, only to be told he cannot fly his American flag.
Days after Gregory Schaffer installed a flag pole in his front yard, he received a citation from the Town of Hypoluxo listing the flag as a code violation.
“It’s sad. It’s sad that we have to go through that just to fly a flag,” said Schaffer.
The 24-year-old Iraq war veteran said after serving overseas, it was a must to have a flag flying in his yard. But within days after hoisting up the flag, he was slapped with a citation after an anonymous neighbor filed a complaint with the town.
