Yes, I agree with the supreme court ruling
No, flag burning should be illegal/a crime
I am not sure
The flag is a symbol of the State, essentially the government. Burning it in protest against the State is well within the rights and liberties of any individual.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

ANd you are either being dishonest or horribly naive if you truly believe it is 'just' a piece of cloth. If that were the case there wouldnt be such strong and passionate stands against the acts. The most passionate voices against flag burning typically come from people who have actually had to work and sacrifice. To those individuals I promise you...its not just a piece of cloth. But from the perspective of some spoiled little **** who has equates combat and sacrifice to giving up on the bong party early on a Sunday so he can take a midterm at 11 on Monday and then go down to the big Free Speech rally...well...totally different perspective...
