right.
i never could quite get behind the laws against flag burning. sure, it's disrespectful, but since when is it against the law to lose respect for your country, for everything the flag at that point stands for? it doesnt mean you're a treasonous enemy, it means you're upset with the way the country is going and are expressing yourself.
