    He ought to keep it up and pay the fine.

    No one will restrict me from flying Old Glory as I see fit, on my personal property.

        Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

        "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.

          Is your house on your personal property built to your own building codes....or some government agency's? Thought so.

          There are rules that govern your property. Follow them. No reason he can't fly the flag at 42' like anyone else.

            I am all for being a proud American and flying the colors. And for defying the authority for a bit.

            But...

            I think Donald should just comply and get over it. I/he/you have better things than to fight with the authorities over something like this. Be loud and proud, but just play by the rules on this one I guess.

              Then he can challenge the building ordinance.

              This is a money making scheme. And some rich pompous snob (well a bunch of them) who want everything their way. Screw 'em.

              And as mentioned, poles are proportional to flags. I still say challenge it. Or pay the fine.

              And where were the building inspectors when they inspected the property?

                Being as it's against their code, I'm willing to bet he put the flag pole up after any inspections were done. And I agree with you...comply, challenge, or pay the fine.

                    I see both sides, but when it comes down to it. I'd love to see an 80' flag pole on ever corner. At least then people may pay attention to it and remember what some people went through to allow us to fly a 10', or 42', or even 80' flag pole.
                    When it comes to the flag, I just don't see how you can regulate how high it can be.

                    I guess I'll pay his fines for the first year.

                            Bump - And an update

                            WEST PALM BEACH, Florida (AP) -- Officials in the ritzy coastal town of Palm Beach have voted to fine Donald Trump $1,250 a day for flying a large American flag atop an 80-foot flagpole at his lavish club in violation of town codes.

                            Code enforcement officials have accused the 60-year-old real-estate mogul of violating zoning guidelines with a flagpole taller than 42 feet, for not obtaining a building permit, and for not getting permission from the landmarks board.

                            Trump has refused to take down the flag. He has also filed a $25 million lawsuit against the town arguing, in part, that officials are selectively enforcing ordinances and that flying the American flag at his Mar-A-Lago club is a constitutionally protected expression of free speech.

                            "The town council of Palm Beach should be ashamed of itself," Trump said Thursday in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. "They're fining me for putting up the American flag. This is probably a first in United States history."

                            Trump's club hoisted the 15-by-25-foot flag atop the 80-foot pole at the sprawling waterfront site on October 3. The town had given him until November 27 to remove the flag or apply for approvals.

                            "I think Mr. Trump, the property owner, picked this fight. I think he's been provocative," said Martin Fried, a member of the town's Code Enforcement Board.

                            Officials voted Thursday to fine Trump.

                            Trump said he wouldn't pay any fines and would keep the flag flying.

                            "It's all up in the court," he said. "It'll be a long time, unfortunately."

                                Really though we had a Belle tire that had to remove a pole that was to tall. Although Trump is a moron I hope he wins this one.
