Say goodbuy to home shops

The article in the link is of concern to anyone with a home shop. If
you have a neighbor thats a pain in the ass now just wait till he has the
power he so desires to run your life with the full force of the law
to back him up.

I can take one look at that bastard and know he wants something I don't in a neighborhood. Egad, what's this country coming to? Socialized color schemes and coordinated lawn colors aren't far off, are they?

People are ready to sell their soul to the devil and suffer a lifetime of nonsensical inconveniences (and impose same on their neighbors) so that they can get a few thousand more for their homes ("home values"). It is ridiculous.
So what if someone has a refrigerator in their front yard. I personally would not care too much.

It's the washing machine and the pigs running out the front door that get to me. Short of that, just keep the poison ivy from running into my yard and I'm happy.

I don't see anything in this article about home shops, or even what codes they are trying to enforce.
I know Colorado is having an illegal immigration problem like many areas, and this may be an attempt to have stricter enforcement of occupancy laws. For instances a landlord rents a single family house out to 25 illegals packed in the basemment, and uses the rent to pay off his mortgage.

As long as they invite you to the pig roast........if not have your own and invite one of your neighbors pigs to the roast.
I wonder how many pot bellyed pigs wound up in the pot?

Was there something specific in that article about home shops? If so I missed it.
We live in a townhome in a pretty nice area and I've had zero complaints from neighbors on any of the tools in use in my home shop, including a medium-sized CNC mill that can make a bit of noise late evenings. The HOA pays for outside maintenance which leaves me more time in the shop - seems like a fair trade to me.

I hate to break it to you this bluntly, Larry, but "this country" is coming to the bitter end.
It's about too many people with too few necessary resources to share. There are 650 somting million people in the U.S.
This is NOT the land of the Monroe Doctrine anymore. Manifest Destiny has come (and gone).
You didn't really think this religious war was about religion, did you?

Your very fortunate to live in a HOA where the CCR's don't pohibit you from having a shop in your home. When i was house hunting all the HOA controlled homes i was offered had CCR's that strictley prohibit a home shop.

When i was house hunting i read some CCR's that allowed the HOA to actually inspect the inside of your house if they so desire. The typical HOA home is nothing more than a guilded cage.

Did you know that a couple gallons of used motor oil poured into a swimming pool, really really fucks things up for the owner?
A water balloon tossed out a car window, the contents of the balloon being RoundUP, can really make a unique work of art out of an assholes prized yard?
There are lots of ways to express displeasure with your neighbors, indluding the Tribullchet of styrofoam disolved in gasoline....

In England it has even been mooted that the ownership of lathes might be subject to police approval because of their use to bore out the barrels of illegal guns.
What I don't understand is why the ownership of kitchen knives is not also so subject?

Maybe the illustrious Census Bureau finally got serious and started counting illegal aliens, too.
