Jerry,This from a man who was prepared to pay the ultimate price to defend us and that tatterered flag of ours.
I'm NOT in favor of a flag burning ammendment. I served 22 years active service. I've protected that flag in every time zone. I've been in Greece and Spain during their elections and seen it burned overseas. I have the flag that draped my father's casket. I well up with tears while standing for the national anthem at a sporting event. I cover my heart with my hand now that I'm not in uniform. I stop when I see a tattered flag flying and tell the owners that it needs replaced. I remember all those who died to keep that flag flying.
I don't oppose a flag burning ammendment for anything so noble as the right of free speech. I just think that constitutional ammendments should be very few and far between. On that note, I don't think that a state law banning the burning is unconstitutional. I also don't want to see a prayer in school amendment either. Jesus told us to pray in secret. I can pray anywhere I want and no one is the wiser.
You gotta love these guys.
