If there was ever a solution in search of a problem, an arrest in search of a crime, it's this one.
It is a freedom of expression issue, nothing more. There was a grand total of ONE flag burned last year. This is NOT the
burning issue facing most Americans, but mark my words, the Repugnican thugs are going to try to make it one for
the 2006 elections. They will trot out flag burning amendments in every state where they think they can get away with it,
and tar every Democrat in sight with the "traitor" brush if they don't toe the line.
Bullshit! All this will do is to create a problem where none existed. Human nature being what it is, a large number of flags
will get burnt as a protest to this stupid proposal, which in turn will churn up the emotions on both sides, and meanwhile
the Bush Family Evil Empire is doing its level best to exchange blood for oil. Our brothers and sisters are leaking their
life fluid into the arid sands of Iraq while Halliburton, the Carlyle Group, etc., are busy removing the black gold from under it.
Give me a break. Don't fall for this cynical ploy, people. They don't give a shit about the flag or the country it
represents. All they care about is their bottom line profits. Fuck 'em -- we don't have to help them along.
Here are some important links. Study up on the issue and make up your own mind about it.
