    See how petty and pathetic this is?

    So, why don't the little wanker flag burners go burn their own money instead when they want to protest the government??????
    How much intrinsic value does the FRN have? None... so I'll gladly burn the toilet paper they call money all because it's printed under government law.

    Yes, people have the right to act like 12 year old boys.

    But, As I recall, you have stated you SUPPORT people acting like 12 year old boys.

    Otherwise, I request you pull your support of flag burning.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Maybe its me, using the flag as a proxy for the country seems like those who buy $3 support the troops magnets to put on their car.

    In both cases, nothing positive is being accomplished as there is no action behind either.

    I support their right to act that way. If someone wants to burn a flag then I support their right to do so. It's just fabric and belongs to the one burning it.

    Its sad you ignore the history of the flag, why it was created, what battles it was flown over to distinguish ourselves from other nations and the tradition of respect its held.

    But you just ignore all of that so you won't ever understand. And doing "concrete" work is good but it doesn't fill the hole in your understanding of the flag or your disrepect for its meaning no matter how many hours you put in.

    People with "I support the troop" stickers and such, who never do anything to actually support the troops annoy me no end.

    So when the government ignores what the flag was originally designed for and performs the same actions as the government that oppressed the people before them they have lost understanding of what the flag represents. Buring the flag serves to remind the government of what they are doing to oppress the people and ignoring what the flag has stood for.

    The only ignorance here is yours towards what I know. Just because I believe differently than you does not mean I don't have the same facts, and probably more than you. What is sad is that you think flying a flag in your yard really means something. Actions mean something.

    Okay.... Then I tell you what....

    You want to protest your government in the coooolest way possible?

    Go to the bank, withdrawl ALL of your funds, savings, checking, mutual funds, stocks, sell your car, sell your house. Get EVERYTHING in Cash.

    Then, take some of that money and go get yourself a small 1 galon gas container.... buy a gallon of gas and a lighter or bum some matches from the Gas stations (although I think they respect their government (ie money) too much to give it matches away now).

    Then, take the money and stack it up in a big sacrificial pyramid. Pour gasoline in a perimeter on the base of the pyramid. Light yourself a match and throw it at the gasoline soaked bills at the base of the Pyramid.




    That will show those mother ****ers in Washington who the boss is.

    That is always a matter of opinion.

    Buring the flag serves to remind the government of what they are doing to oppress the people and ignoring what the flag has stood for.
    Burning the flag is a sign of disprespect. If politicans are the reason for your ire, burn their pictures.
