    Massive American flag is illegal to fly

    "No people in the world ever did achieve their freedom by goody-goody talk and moral suasion: it being immutable law that all revolutions that will succeed must being in blood, whatever may answer afterward."

    Re: Massive American flag is illegal to fly

    They put one of these up at the Chevrolet dealer on Route 1 in Saco, Maine. It was pretty flying in the breeze. They had a nice light on it at night to. I used to love watching it when it was snowing out.

    But ...

    It made a hell of a lot of noise, I could hear it at night a quarter of a mile away when it was windy.

    And ..

    There were CONSTANTLY having to fix it. Flags that big make a lot of noise because of the end snapping in the breeze. I don't remember how long it took, but after awhile the ends would get frayed and it would start to look bad. It always seemed to me that they took too long to take it down and get it fixed.

    Not against large flags, just wondering if the folks wanting to put this up has considered these types of things. It really irritated me when that flag got all frayed after a large wind storm, and it would stay up for what seemed to me like far too long.
    Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

    We had a local tractor sales company put one up a few years back. Ended up going to court with the town (Tilton) over it due to a zoning issue.

    There's one a whole lot bigger than that a couple miles from our house. Constantly having problems with it.

    I can't believe anyone cares in a commercial area.
