… whether you like it or not, at the 40 x 80 American flag out on Interstate 77! It’s there to sell RVs at Gander RVs in Statesville NC and it’s WAYYY beyond that town’s limits on stuff you can fly to attract attention to yourself.

Like all hucksters appealing to patriotism with grotesque flags or to piety with ten ton crosses, Mr RV says shit no the entryway to Statesville will remain a mega-kitsch Betsy Ross and anyone who says boo hates this country. I’m a big fat patriot taking up a lot of space to sell big fat gas guzzlers and y’all just try to shut me down.

Bout time Mr RV got introduced to the concept of law, huh?

    What are these things ‘laws’ of which you speak? All ‘muricans equal, some more equal’n’others. Ref: Bundy vs. BLM and assorted kill first, walk free police cases. Compare and contrast.

    Ravi: Well, we gotta TRY…

    This story is on the Yahoo feed. The guy’s getting thousands of dollars in free advertising/PR, and it’s perfectly directed at his market segment. All that’s needed to cover the fines is selling a few extra units, which is more than likely. He’ll see a boost in customer traffic, as well.

    Patriotism may be the last refuge for a scoundrel, but it doesn’t mean it ain’t profitable…

    charlie: Yeah. We’re all paying attention to the idiot. It means he’ll have to remove the flag, but it also means he’ll sell a few RVs.

    In a neighboring community: AFAIK, it is still flying.
