I am considered open-minded and fair in most things, and I hope to stay that way, since it makes life easier for me not to hate anyone because of political ideology. Life is too short, and there are far more important things to be concerned about. The 60s are not a period I look back on as ideal, since it started an "anything goes" mentality to achieve a goal, which we are seeing their children use today.
As far as desecrating our flag, I have both family and friends who have died for that flag and what it represents, so I disagree with you. Is there any other country in the world where it's okay to burn their flag or walk on it? That shows disrespect, which is why terrorists use that tactic. Try doing that to their flag, or anything they hold important, and see what happens! Then you can tell me I'm wrong in my thinking!
