    Default Flag disrespect and desecration.

    Does anyone else get mad or irritated everytime someone disrespects our flag?
    Had a good argument with a Liberal Hippie Douchebag who claims he can burn or stomp ANY US flag he choses because of the fact some are made overseas. As a service member, I believe it's STILL our flag and it's not about where it was made but rather what it stands for. Needed to vent before I get the urge to punch "him" (not much of a man in my eyes) in his throat for wasting precious oxygen.

    Where it is made is irrelevant. Though as a matter of principle they should all be made here. It is just another excuse to bend or break the rules of society

    Yeah, no I don't care where they're made.. they're still a US flag, and still stand for all of those that have served... and even more so those that made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our country... I would certainly prefer they all be made here in the US... but either way makes my blood boil when I see these ungrateful ****s stepping all over and burning our flag... I was telling a friend of mine, that hopefully I never see someone doing it when I'm passing by in my Jeep.. or I may be putting my steel bumper to the test...

    I do enjoy the videos of them catching fire while burning a flag. I didn't serve in the military but stupid people doing stupid things with flags doesn't offend me. When I shoot my guns, eat tastey bacon or turn the key on my XJ to take a trip down a road that I don't know where it goes and find something cool is when I appreciate the sacrifices those who serve make for me. The flag is just a symbol of the ideals this country is supposed to stand for. But its a hydra. You buy one to burn the flag makers make more to replace it and I think that is more of a symbol for this country than the flag its self. It shows you can screw with us but we will rise from the fire stronger. That's just how I feel.

    Flag disrespect and desecration.

    Does anyone else get mad or irritated everytime someone disrespects our flag?
    Had a good argument with a Liberal Hippie Douchebag who claims he can burn or stomp ANY US flag he choses because of the fact some are made overseas. As a service member, I believe it's STILL our flag and it's not about where it was made but rather what it stands for.

    Yes, it upsets me when folks disrespect our flag.

    Arguing with "Liberal Hippie Douchebag" is a waste of your precious time. Its kind of like wrestling with pigs - you both get dirty & the swine love it.

    Manufacturing country of origin is irrelevant for the purposes of this discussion. Ownership may be relevant as to the concept of destruction of personal property, but is irrelevant as to the concept of disrespect.

    Desecrating the flag's basic intent is to incite a violent response. Its a childlike dare to onlookers. Its a 'Look at me!' stunt that provokes so that the protester can also claim victim status.

    We don't get much of that where I live. It is a very rural area where most families have kin who have served or are on active duty. One of the nearby communities has a commemorative park with a plaque that has over 900 names of residents who have died in combat over the years. The town's population is less than 200. No flag burning there.

    I'm not sure that there is an easy way to clean this mess up. Its to late to impress upon these folks basic goodness of our country. If we truly believe in the first amendment, we have to allow these folks the opportunity to express themselves. We don't have to pay for it. We shouldn't ignore it. We have a right to disagree with the protestor. We have a right to defend ourselves from any real aggression from these folks.

    Thanks to those who have answered the call of their nation. Uniformed service to our country is often misunderstood and undervalued. Please treat returning vets with the respect they have earned.

    Because of who has been put in our Supreme Court, The act of burning or desecrating our flag has been considered a 1rst amendment right... I feel that those who decided that dishonoured our country. A citizen having the right to disrespect our country is one thing. But disrespecting the symbols that represent what we stand for as a nation is not a freedom of speech, it is an act of rebellion and a direct attack on our Country! Therefore it is not an act of a citizen. At least in the way I see it. The important part of this type of conversation is, We as Americans, STAND UP for those symbols, make their abuse unacceptable. Making them illegal to abuse only makes them more potent a tool against us, but how we feel about it, how we respond to it in public, will make a difference. Don't walk away, Don't say "What ever ass hole" Tell them how you feel, tell them they are out of line, tell them they are abusing their right for an invalid cause. God Bless America, God Keep America and I vow to do the same.

    Let us take our pride and love for our Country in strength into the new year!

    sooner or later, someone will burn a flag and someone will walk up a put a bullet in them. Unfortunate, but I see it happening(first amendment right or not)

    Nobody has rights, they're called privileges and they can be revoked and/or modified whether we like it or not.. Flag burning is what it is.. Either we like it or not it's going to happen, if someone wants to pop one in someone's head for doing so then I think that person should be evaluated.. People that get too emotional and let it control their actions should be evaluated.. Put the feet in the other shoes and try to understand and let them also understand where you stand.. I think it's a beautiful process.. Yet people get too emotional and let it override their actions..

    America, **** yeah!

    No bullet, just a blast from a fire extinguisher.

    It's currently covered under free speech but I don't get the point. The flag represents us as a people, not the system that you (the burner) has a problem with. To me it seems like empty shock value.

    I sometimes wonder if the burner is just some dufus trying to impress some girl. Or impress his other dufus buddies.
