Is it not ironic that the flag is a symbol for liberty and freedom? Apparently the symbol is more important than the meaning. Why don't we just remove the 1st amendment completely?
I just think this is pointless, especially when there are so many other more important problems facing our nation. Washington is full of clowns.
I hope the senate uses some common sense dealing with this nonimportant issue. I have a feeling that anyone who doesn't vote for this ammendmant
will be branded by their opponents as unpatriotic or obstructionists, that's how Washington works now. Pure insanity, and I'm so sick and
tired of it.
If this is passed it will be interesting to see what the punishment for desecrating a piece of cloth will be. Jail time?
