Burning the flag


Like the proverbial stopped clock, Hillary Clinton and I now agree on something (gag!)——the flag burning amendment (gag!) just passed by the House of Representatives is unnecessary and should not be approved.

WASHINGTON — A constitutional amendment to outlaw flag burning cleared the House Wednesday but faced an uphill battle in the Senate. An informal survey by The Associated Press suggested the measure doesn't have enough Senate votes to pass.

Hillary doesn't support it.  Neither do I, neither do many others. 
Disclaimer:  I don't like it but I think the flag burners have a right to their nasty little temper tantrums as long as they don't injure others with fire. Free speech and all that which is what the flag represents.  Burners don't like that apparently.
Oh sure, this isn't a pleasant sight, especially since the flag burners themselves are so unpleasant, but hey, this is a democracy and in a democracy people have the right to publicly proclaim their jerkiness for all to see.
In the meantime I will continue to wear my flag T shirt; I don't have stars and stripes underwear though.  Yet.
And I didn't burn any of them.
