"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
Do you have your proof that this is happening "all the time".
When I did a google search, Ron Paul said he could only find 16 recorded incidents in recent history. I found another source that could only find 4 recorded incidents of flag-burning.
So, if it's happening "all the time" at these liberal rallies you seem to be attending, why aren't you reporting it?
"God Bless Our Troops in Harms Way."
Considering that the kids who did this admitted that they were doing this to create a conflict they should be punished for that and ONLY that, just as anyone should who tries to provoke. It has nothing to do with the fact that they were wearing an American flag. I don't think it's necessarily meant to disparage the US flag or anything about this country. That being said, it's stupid that such a conflict could arise from simply wearing a US flag, considering that Cinco De Mayo is a Mexican holiday and that this is the US. People seem to love getting outraged over non-issues.
