    It's AMAZING how many want to blame the murder of people on actions not taken by the murderers. That's inexcusable to be making excuses for people like that.

    Sure, if they can pass an amendment to annul the first one.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Re: Should Congress Ban Burning of the Quran

    Why does anyone need to burn a Quran?

    We have a living Constitution, but we don't live in the 1800's anymore.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    What's important is to protect our citizens' right to be completely offensive to Americans, not some other country with different beliefs and customs and laws.
    What's important is ensuring that our freedoms as American's aren't infringed upon by cowards afraid of lunatics in other countries.

    The American flag was the one flag that didn't dip in fear of Hitler at the 1936 Olympics opening ceremonies, and it damn well better not be drooping to some damn mullah living in cave in Afghanistan.

    It's already against the law to set people on fire in the United States, as it is also against the law to avulse their heads, stab them, or shave their beards.

    It's even against the law to pull off hijabs.

    The torching of a book does not violate anyone's human rights. There's no human "right" to be protected from offense.

    We do not have a living constitution.So if you wish to make changes to it then it must be amended.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Mayor Snorkum is fairly certain that if it's not protected to yell fire in a crowded theater it also isn't protected to start a fire in a crowded theater.

    But, if someone is outside and has a cozy little bonfire, then sure they can burn all the Korans they own. Or, if they have a fireplace, as the Mayor does, they can scatter Koran-smoke all over their neighborhood, along with the vaporized bacon grease, if they want.

    You're never going to pass your naturalization exam if you can't figure out the First Amendment.

    The insults didn't cause any damage.

    The insane inflamed terrorist crazies did.
