BURN YOUR FLAGS WHILE YOU CAN

It looks like the House has approved an amendment banning flag burning, and the vote will go to the Senate. If the senate approves, it will become illegal to burn flags in the United States.

How strange that the very symbol of our freedom to disagree might be protected by a law that prohibits its use as a symbol of our freedom to disagree.

Here's an interesting site that I stumbled upon dealing with the whole flag burning issue, and how the ACLU has historically stood by groups or individuals that felt the need to express themselves by burning the american flag.
