    Try telling fire in a public theater and see how that works for ya. Some things simply are not allowed for a reason.

    Flag burning isn't yelling fire in a crowded theatre though.

    Along with Our Freedoms go responsibilities. We can always find example of the extreme, where some one crosses the line. But those are exceptions, rather than the rule.---at least I hope they are. "There is never a good excuse, for bad Manners"---My Mom.

    Have you ever had the urge to simply speak your mind towards someone that annoys you? I mean that is bad manners but good for the blood pressure

    Yeah, I figured you were with me on that, I just know that some people actually try to argue that burning a flag is just like yelling fire in a theatre. Which, of course, opens the door to any controversial speech being banned just for being controversial.

    I actually do that quite often. I have that reputation. My friends kid me about it all the time.--I wish I were stronger though. --"the sign of ones good manners, is being able to tolerate another's poor manners" --Dear ole Mom again.

    Perhaps he realizes there is a difference between a Classical Liberal and a Modern "Liberal". And perhaps the stereotypical, and more prevalent, modern liberal IS like that. They do use blanket terms and lump things together, both sides do it.
    To start with, "classical liberals" like the founding fathers were slave owners, they were obviously not being referred to, no need to put "liberals" in quotation marks for that.
    Secondly, you are doing the very thing you are pointing a finger at here - generalising about a diverse group of people.

    Just for the record, I am not a liberal of either kind, this term belongs into US political terminology. I find it odd, not least because it obscures distinctions and nuances on the left side of the political spectrum.

    Doesn't observation of the sociological concept of the "nation" detract from human unity?
