Ugh. I would like to be able to think that burning a peice of cloth with some patters on it would be enough to go to prison for, But I cant get my head quite that far up my own ass. Maybe with some practice...

I've wanted to see a flag burning ban for a while, but I agree it seems  that they'd have more important things to be thinking about right now.

You have got to see Dave Chapelle's "Black Bush" skit. It is so true it is funny and sickening at the same time.

"Everybody worrying about the war, or the economy. I got that **** under control. We goin' to space. The United States of Space. Read my lips: M-A-R-S. Mars, *******, red rocks!"

Our country is going down the tubes. From the top down.

What is a good and logical reason to ban the burning of a peice of cloth with colors and patterns?

I find flag burning un patriotic and in a sense, treason. Treason is punishable by death.

SO, if you have the need to burn a flag, do someone elses, and if you MUST ( ) burn OUR flag, become a citizen of a different country and leave the US, you don't deserve to live here.

Love our country, you can disagree with the governement all you want, but love our country.


Oh, but it's protected under free speach. Free speach my ass, if you do a "conspiracy" to kill the president, thtas illegal yet it's just talking..

Burning a peice of cloth is not treason. It is nothing.

Wonderfull thing about the 1st ammendment, gives the right to protest. If during that protest, I burn an American flag in a symbolic gesture. I am partaking in my freedoms. How exactilly do you judge who "Deserves to live here" and who dosent? Do they just need to agree with you?

No, you don't have to agree with me to live here, other wise only half the country would be here now.

But lets look at the word treason

"Violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies."

Now, how does flag burning aid our enemies? It creates disencion among our country, one side against the other, and not talking about politics.

So, flag buring is treason, no ifs ands or buts.

I cant wait till they make an Ammendment where it will be illegal to say something negative about this President. Then we will have come full circle.

Since when does dissagreeing with someone lead moral support to the other side. If that is all they have to encourage them, then that isnt much.

Burning the flag doesnt violate my allegence, nor is it a betryal of my county. It is just a from of protest to say that one dissagrees with what is going on.

But why burn a flag? Why not burn a huge bonfire?

It's lending moral support for the enemy and away from us.

And actually, burning a flag right now is illegal because it's arson. SO HA

No, Having war mongers, CEO's, and oil tycoons in charge of starting wars is causing the 'disencion amoung our country".

That last sentance is really funny. Its treason, no ifs ands or buts....except not really at all, whatsoever.
