I just felt like I wanted one. After all these decades born and raised a couple or three generations American and part of the whole American enchilada from Beatles on Sullivan to mood rings and Mtv. So I put one up. So far in my United Nations small hood,where the trucks are almost as big as some homes I've had no problems. I thought I might get a few "flag waver" putdowns..nothing. Or maybe a vandal..but,no. Looks fine too.
