ok, i can see that. but as it was said earlier in this thread, i think that message would come across better if you burned a picture of the president.
again, just my opinion.
The idea of flag burning is to show discontent with the government, not the country. So you could say they are being more patriotic than those who aren't burning the flags, because they are acting on behalf of their country, are actually motivated enough and care enough about something to get off their asses and do something.

I'm gonna go burn a flag....which is far more human than your post.
That's fine if it's legal. I don't really have a problem with it being legal. I'll just never participate in it. However, like abortion, I wouldn't lose any sleep over it if it WAS made illegal.
I do think lines have to be drawn somewhere though. For instance, I don't think "freedom" entails that a man should be allowed to have cosensual (sp?) sex with a 12 year old boy. And I'm not equating flag burning to that example, I'm just saying...freedom is subjective up until the point of what I would describe as "common sense".
Yea thats very true, its very disrespectful. But remember its ok to be disrespectful to anything conservative in america.
You're missing the point though. There are more important things going on that need to be addressed than whether or not someone burns a flag..or cuts a hole in it and sticks their head through it ala Republican kiss-ass Kid Rock. There are more important issues than whether gay marriage should be abolished nationwide. These guys want to amend the Constitution and Bill of Rights on these issues. Why? To suck the cock of their base. That's why. Otherwise, they DON'T CARE. It's all about getting re-elected in 06.
Last I checked, the flag represents all Americans, not just the crazy ones.
wow, you're such a better person than i could ever be. congrats on that, douche.
Exactly. We have 2500 dead in Iraq, couldn't they be doing something a little more productive than a flag burning amendment (sp)?

Well, the thread is about burning a flag, not enjoying the burning of an Iraninan....like your post charactarizes you of.
if the guy was canadian, italian, irish, chinese, loatian, australian, american, whatever...i'd still feel the same way. i'm not taking joy in a human being hurt, i'm laughing at the fact that he's a stupid asshole that didn't bother to wipe lighter fluid off his arm before he decided to light my flag up. as far as i'm concerned, it serves him right.
and you know what, i take back calling you a douche. i just don't like being called the equivilant of "inhuman". obviously this subject sits differently with me than you.
