Flag-o-rama: Treatment of Our National Symbol

Ahhhh, our democratically-elected Congresscritters have once again voted in an attempt to amend our Constitution to outlaw the “physical descecration of the flag of the United States.” Actually to be more accurate, the amendment would only provide congress with “the power to prohibit” physical desecration, etc.

Soon, the Senate will take it up and we’ll see if a Republican majority can force it through with the required 2/3 votes. I don’t really see it happening, but stranger things occur every day!
