A note to all of my friends sharing the US Code (link above has a decent history of the code) as it relates to desecration of the National Colors: the code was struck down by the Supreme Court in 1990. The Court argued that burning the flag was an act of free speech protected by the first amendment of the Constitution. You’re more than welcome to disagree. Heaven knows I hate seeing the Colors treated inappropriately! But consider this: the very system that you claim to support has created this decision.
It’s not *your* country. It’s *ours.* And I’m sick to death of small minds on both sides of the aisle trying to bring it down.
How about we stop with the indignation and the invitations to love it or leave it? How about we stop looking for things to hate and find things to love?
