Jim Satterwhite’s House
GREENVILLE, TEXAS: Jim Satterwhite was in the middle of painting his home on his private property when he was summoned to stand before the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission (2315 Johnson St, Greenville, TX 75401 · (903) 457-3160.)
Satterwhite’s house on 3815 Stonewall Street, just so happens to be within and imaginary line that borders the South Hill Neighborhood Conservation District. This particular part of town is the home of people who believe that they have a say in what color is chosen by those who aren’t in their clique, so they have a right to say no to what they don’t like. Satterwhite was placed on the recent Planning and Zoning docket so he could ask for a “certificate of appropriateness” for his favorite shade of blue. He was outnumbered by a wall of fellow humans who lived in dwellings near him that spoke out against his choice of blue. Some bemoaned that it was too dark, others exclaimed that it was too blue. They also came to a conclusion that the color was not “compatible” or “complimentary” to the other homes in the area.
Mr. Satterwhite was grasping at straws to defend his deteriorating Freedom of choice by saying that his 100-year-old house was at one time painted with the color that he picked. But commission member George Warren huffed and puffed and did not accept that as a valid reason. The more valuable humans in the neighborhood want all present and future homes in their district restricted to only a short list of acceptable colors to choose from.
The commissioners huddled together after his testimony and ruled against Mr. Satterwhite with a 4-3 vote to block his right to private property and suspend his home improvement project.
Now Master Sgt. Satterwhite, has to take the financial loss of his hard-earned income that he invested to improve the exterior of his home. No one has a right to property value, these people who are forcing this tyranny upon their neighbors should be ashamed of themselves. Last week my boys and I attended a city council meeting in Lone Oak, (pop. 700) which is in the same county. A group of micro tyrants are also pissing on property rights by using property value and curb appeal as an excuse to levy fines and declare homes condemned just because they sit behind a cheap wooden podium with a plastic plaque bearing their name.
The subject of home size was brought up and they were crying about that since they only get .15 cents a square foot for the initial move in fee, that these smaller homes are falling below the $120 minimum and that they (the city council) were getting screwed over. They also whined about people moving campers and trailers into town in the middle of the night without their permission. I engaged in a brief argument by asking so “if someone has a trailer, or camper on their property that they pay eternal rent for, you would evict them for not paying your fee or being up to your satisfaction?” Councilman Gordon Galloway said “Yes!” I immediately followed with “that’s tyrannical”. Mr. Galloway then concluded with his statist and tactless mindset by stupidly saying “Welcome to life in America”. He acknowledged that the rest of America is corrupt with that statement, so why doesn’t he go against the grain and use his position as a voice of liberty instead of violating property rights.
I was temporarily silenced by the Mayor, Doug Williams, when he said I needed to fill out a request to speak, letting me know i wasn’t in a “free speech” zone. You would think that these small towns would be more free, and a lot less lenient about fines, fees, rules, restrictions, and regulations than the bigger more corrupt cities. The mounting greed with the added violations of human rights is becoming more apparent in these little towns that some are using as an escape from the overflow of tyranny in the more populated areas.

Vote them out and put someone in that upholds the Constitution.
no corporation has that jurisdiction, show me the legislation that says you have control over me, show me in the constitution that gives them that authority.
Paint it HOT PINK! Would be a cold day in hell, before I would let some HOA tell me how to paint my home. Lock and Load!
Gross. Thought it was a historical site maybe was why they were crying, but this crap OMFG.
My property, my home, I’ll paint it whatever color I want and put a bullet hole in anyone who comes onto my property to tell me otherwise.
