HOAs ▶ SocialCurrentSee



ALTACITIES®, an acronym for “ALTERNATE CITIES,” is the web moniker for the neighborhood of sites, blogs and locations created and managed by @ALTALOMAN, in reference to our first web journals and blogging activity when residents of Alta Loma in Southern California. In 2011, we moved but these ALTACITIES® remain in the form of common interest developments ▶http://flip.it/VQOxZn on Flipboard


The SocialCurrentSee found on this site deals largely with common interest developments, aka homeowner associations or HOAs, now the dominant housing development type in California and much of the rest of the nation.  For the numbers, see this DATA.

▶ Many of the sources archived and flipped here are found in my TWITTER feed and searches like the archive found below.




▶ Whether one owns a townhouse, raw land in a subdivision, a gated-community home, a shack in zoned jungle, or part stake in a condominium complex the majority of people who live there are often not always thrilled about the few folks who also live there and are set up as authority figures known as The Board. It is a universally known truism that the members of such "boards" have been known to try and institute/enforce rules which perhaps suit them more than they suit everyone else (such as what colors they prefer to see everyone's homes painted, for example, and whether or not neighbors should be allowed to put up a laundry line or raise chickens)…and, as a governing body, they are also universally known to revise homeowner fees...ever upwards.

▶ So I was thrilled when I moved to a rural area where there were still subdivisions that did not have these kinds of mandatory rules or fees...even though a voluntary homeowner Board did exist to organize things like road maintenance and Neighborhood Watch activities. This is the 'hood for me! I thought, signing on the dotted line to purchase my very own little rustic mecca in the tropical wilds.

▶ And things were very peaceful for many years, until one day…

For recreational, high-handicap golfers like me, I have read (and fully believe) that 95% of us struggle to break 100 in the typical round.  Stands to reason then that the folks who have manufactured this new club as speak to me and the vast majority of golfers like me.  Looking forward to my first chance to use the GX-7.  Updates will follow.

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Corruption Chronicles comes a devastating expose of the scandals of Obama's second term. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton reveals what the largest watchdog agency in America has uncovered in its battles against Obama secrecy. Clean House takes us through incriminating documents from the attack in Benghazi, Hillary Clinton’s secret emails, the IRS scandal, and the Obamacare swindle. As the president of Judicial Watch, America’s largest non-partisan government watchdog, Tom Fitton has investigated the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations. Judicial Watch is the group that helped impeach Bill Clinton and took the Bush White House secrecy all the way up to the Supreme Court. Since the beginning of the Obama administration, this grassroots group has filed over 700 open records demands and dozens of lawsuits, including a successful fight over the secret Obama White House visitor logs. Americans are rightly worried they are losing their country. How did five Congressional committees miss the smoking gun on Benghazi? How did Hillary Clinton keep a secret email server quiet for years? Does the IRS audit you because of your politics? Did the first American target of Obama’s drone program work for the US government? How did Congress commit fraud to get Obamacare taxpayer subsidies? In Clean House, Tom Fitton answers these questions and provides shocking evidence of the corruption endemic to the Obama White House.
