Honor the flag

tattered old gloryThere's lots of reasons to fly the flag. We've got a pretty good country here, and displaying Old Glory is a good way to assert our pride in it. It bugs me that the flag is largely synonymous in popular usage with support for US military action. It makes me crazy that some of our representatives waste our time with their efforts to make burning the flag illegal. The treatment the flag in this picture has received seems more disrespectful than burning it would have been. But I wouldn't make this illegal either.

Hey, what's wrong with burning a little flag now and then? Make good kindling. Hell, with an economy like this, you've got to keep warm somehow.

The flag is symbolic of this country, so no matter how you feel about the government or whatever, you should find a better way to express your anger instead of childishly burning something for attention.
