Hosted and produced by Shu Bartholomew, "On The Commons" is a weekly radio show dedicated to discussing the many issues surrounding mandatory homeowner associations, the fastest growing form of residential housing in the nation.  

 

This Week's Show

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

As you can see, contrary to popular belief the Bill of rights does not give us certain rights. The Founders recognized that these were God given rights and sought to prohibit government from taking them away. Little did they know that "Congress", in all its wisdom would find a way of empowering a fake government, aka a residential association where these rights would be trampled on at will. The explanation is that by owning a home you "agreed" to forfeit your Constitutionally protected rights. NO, you did not!
 

Jan Bergemann joins us On The Commons. Jan is the founder and President of the Florida based Cyber Citizens for Justice An outspoken, no nonsense advocate for individual rights, he has worked tirelessly to provide some common sense in an otherwise corrupt system. We talk to Jan about the state of controlled housing in Florida and especially about a bill making its way through the Florida Legislature granting Floridians their God given rights. I know, it sounds absurd, doesn't it? But having empowered associations with extraordinary powers, the legislators are trying to reign them in, just a tiny little bit. It's a start. Join Jan and me for a lively discussion of this new bill and how, when passed, it will reaffirm constitutionally protected rights. Tune in to the show!
