Guinness assigned ARTL official world record attempt number 228132. The protest sign weighs more than 2,700 pounds and was sewed together with more than 4 miles of seams connecting 2,400 twin sheets. It will ultimately stretch

It was backpacked onto location early this morning that is inaccessible by car. It is in process of being unfurled by 44 letter carriers with spotters a mile away to ensure proper letter placement. It will ultimately stretch 530 feet tall and 666 feet wide.

The sign will be legible from at least 5 miles. A scientist who works with satellite imagery helped determine the size of the sign and size of letters and location. To give you an idea how big those letters are, one letter takes up the space of a junior high school gym.

Jefferson Co. police are now stopping people at the nearby staging area from taking water to the hikers, who each carried 50# backbacks 1/2 mile up a steep grade to the site.

With what legal authority?

Yeah, there is cap rock at the top. Green Mountain doesn’t have cap rock. The two Table Mountains do.

nominating Barak Obama emphasizes the DNC even supports killing kids in the womb old enough to know their mother’s voice, sleep and dream, suck their thumbs, and play with their toes
_______________________________________________

And hiccup...

It takes a cold heart to ignore the reality of life in the womb...

Last Sunday my pastor mentioned the dog in Argentina that saved the newborn baby...

he said that even the animal kingdom knew that it’s a child in the womb...

BTW if Obama had found that little girl...........

There will come a time when Americans will look back on the legal abortion era in much the same way we look back on slavery and the mistreatment of Native Americans.

With shame.

It's all OK. Madame Pelosi (mis)quoted Saint Augustine saying that life doesn't begin until 3 months age, so infanticide? SanFranNan is cool with it and her parish.

That's due west of the Catholic Cemetery, Mount Olivet and can't be missed from those high rise hotel rooms downtown that face west.

I'm at work just south of downtown Denver - about 20 blocks south of the Pepsi Center. I can't see it from where I am 2nd story up. I'm going to get in my car and drive and find out. Back in a few.

"With what legal authority?"

Schiavo v. Schiavo clearly granted authorities the right to interfere with those attempting to bring water to the thirsty.

If they were illegal Mexicans, it would be OK to bring them water. And lunch. And beds.

Latest word is that the police have reversed that decision and are allowing water. How nice of them.

The DNC - The Don't Need Children cult. You Don't Need Children with handicaps and problems so destroy them before they are born — and if you gotta have them and think it might add some personal fulfillment to your hedonistic, heathen lives - well the Don't Need Children cult may allow you to have two of them if your genetics check out.

Looking forward to your post bro. God bless these folks for displaying the truth to as many as can possibly see it.

Hopefully Fox or some major network will pick it up. Hannity is there...get the info to his team at the convention.

If they were illegal aliens the police would be air dropping water to them.

What a bunch of troublemakers. They should be put in jail.

LOL. I'm assuming you forgot a sarcasm tag. Welcome to FR.

"UPDATE, 10:10a: Reports are that traffic on I70 has slowed 10 miles from the protest sign as drivers come into its view."

Thanks, Girl — I saw that. Suspect someone realized that they could be in a world of hurt had they not allowed that. I’ll be curious to see what, if any, charges they’ll try to slap on those folks.

“Looks like it might be on North or South Table Mountain near Golden.”

Ha, that’s the mountain where I took one hang gliding lesson in 1980, and then decided I couldn’t afford another and tried just one more time without instructions. Luckily it went okay, but I didn’t try that again. I haven’t seen that mountain since. Thanks

Symbolism. 530 feet tall is likely a reference to a certain 5:30 verse, and 666 feet wide is pretty obviously a slap at who likes abortion.
