We've got 4 good size ranches south of Ridgway. One installed a MASSIVE flag in the middle of their field. A good 10k vehicles pass by daily and see this flag. It's a really nice gesture and makes its point. The flag is much larger that it appears in the photo. It could cover a house.

Wonderful. I have wanted to put up a flag at my house for a long time, but am afraid of vandalism and threats. Same thing with conservative signs or bumper stickers. It's a sad time indeed when you cannot express your patriotism without risking your property and even your life.


The above is my opinion. Your mileage may vary.
1994/2001 custom built XT225 with a ton of aftermarket parts.

An American Flag flies at my house all the time, except for the seasonal stuff my wife likes to put up. Which reminds me that I need to swap the Easter flag for the Stars and Stripes. Most of my neighbors also fly American Flags. One of the fancy houses up on the hill flies a flag of similar size to the one above... it's easily school bus sized. I can hear it flapping at my house when the wind is blowing.


This shall pass, be still and know.

It's a good show of patriotism. Last I checked the flag didn't say Republican or Democrat on it. It symbolizes our nation and all who live here (legally). The notion of letting freedom ring needs to be expressed and displaying our American flag is a good place to start. More power to anyone engaging in displaying it. Not a time to be a Casper milquetoast! Ride safely.

I'll display our flag as long as I draw breath. Anyone who disparages the flag and those who look to it as the symbol of America's promise of unity and patriotism has a problem they need to deal with in the privacy of their own hearts and minds.

Makes no difference who we are, rich or poor, male or female, Republican or Democrat, you name it, ...As Woody Guthrie put it decades ago, ..This land is your land, this land is my land.....

Here's Woody's anthem to America sung by Bruce Springsteen.. This land is your land, this land is my land..

Give a listen. Bruce says it well. Know that our Republic's founding promise still rings true, in spite of the increasingly radical chorus of nay-sayers amongst us..

God Bless America, Land That I Love..

George - Thanks for the post. We need to keep the momentum up. As for Woody Guthrie, he was Arlo Guthrie's father. Somewhat of a stormy past with details HERE if anyone is curious. Not what you'd expect either but interesting reading. The song title rings true. This land truly is your land so let's take care of it.
