    How is this not unconstitutional? Come ON people...

    Orwellian names like "Patriot Act" and "Freedom Fries" are one thing, but what's next? Repealing one's right to speak ill of his/her country? Man, its like the pigs sneaking into the barn in the middle of the night to change the rules just a little.. does anyone care? :dunno:

    Not to mention the fact that THIS IS A NON-ISSUE. This is a completely political push-button, 'more patriotic than thou', non-issue. Who does flag burning affect? How many flags has anyone ever seen burned outside of the Middle East? Way to waste taxpayer time and money, congress, not to mention shred the constitution just a little bit.

    Anyway, anything other than the proper disposal of the flag as it has been recognized throughout American history should be met with a stiff jail sentence and fine and if circumstances permit a stiff ass thrashing from an unruly mob.

    Dubbyuh desecrates the flag when he signs little paper ones at functions. Wearing the flag as a tie, or any other article of clothing, is desecration...using the flag in advertising is desecration...Need I go on

    Free speech is protected unfer the Constitution, even if it is as pathetic as burning the flag.

    Since when and where it is it stated that wearing a representation of the flag is desecration?

    Oh why bother, if it was Che Guevara reincarnated wearing the flag it would be just fine with you.

    1. Burning the flag is free speech.
    2. Speech is defended in all forms, vile or otherwise.
    3. Burning the flag, in my opinion, is vile.
    4. Idolizing the symbol while disregarding the values the symbol represents is hypocrisy.

    You don't get it, not because you're ignorant, but because you don't want to. Burning the flag is not only free speech...it is protected by the First Amendment. But the Constitution doesn't mean as much to you as you claim it does, now does it?

    This is Bullshit!
    I know many of you will not understand this...I served this Country so ass holes could burn the flag. It's simple really, it's called freedom.

    That's all I have to say....
