    Ok. I have reread it. You feel that symbolism is important. I do not.

    LOL Because money actually has meaning to them

    Excellent point!

    Exactly. So you will never understand.

    Yes, the flag stands for grown adults acting like 12 year old boys pissed off at their mommmies.

    I wonder, say this is the 1700's and there are future American's living in England and being religiously oppressed by the Anglican church. Would it be okay for them to burn the English flag in protest?

    I guess in a sense you are correct as I like to deal with actual things and not the representation of things.

    I do think that flag burning is an immature way to protest and only breeds anger, but people have the right to do it. The flag is a symbol, and we should have the right to do as we wish with our property. If someone owns a US flag and choses to burn/desecrate it, then that's their right.

    I am perfectly well acquainted with what the flag stands for. What symbolism it holds is in the eye of the beholder. I prefer more concrete forms of patriotism, like working to improve the country, serving the country, working with veterans. That is patriotism to me, not worrying about a piece of cloth.
