http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/politics/20050622-1641-flagburning.html What a load of bull. In this day and age, if this is important to the American people then things are worse than I thought. Not only is this all huge waste of time, which alone shames the House of Reps, but the right to burn a flag is the essence of being an American. What exactly is the flag supposed to represent anyway? It is the ultimate symbol of rule by the people. And that's what really bothers the promoters of this hogwash. They want a symbol that is bigger than the right of the people to express dissatisfaction with their government.
