    Looks like Cheney is starting to bring out the heavy guns. I had to laugh at one statement in the article:

    Doesnt Kerry and his men ever get tired of talking about Kerry being Vietnam Vet? And why the heck is that relevant to the fact that Kerry voted against banning the burning of the American flag?

    I'm puzzled by the attitudes of both the courts as well as many people who support flag burning as an act protected by the constitution.

    Funny - bashing a mailbox is a crime, but abusing the symbol of our country is "free speech".

    You can bash your own mailbox or burn your own flag, but to do either to mine will be a crime!
