Flag Burning

The Senate rejected an effort to amend the Constitution to allow Congress to ban desecration of the American flag by a single vote. Just yesterday, the 66 to 34 vote fell just short of the two-thirds majority required to approve a constitutional amendment and submit it to the states for ratification. Here's the Washington Post article.

Here's a misguided Shapiro (in my opinion).

LockerRoom debate: Jon, Roy and Jenna

As I think is aptly pointed out in the debate, this is more an issue of "looking good" and maintaining patriotism, rather than some virtuous protection of the legacy of America. Roy also points out the issue of property rights rather than a violation of the First Amendment. I am interested in what others have to say on the subject.

Comments:
I just want to say I had the same exact reaction as Roy on this issue, completely independently. Either he has brainwashed me or we just think alike.
