It's goofy, and I'm not sure how I'd react if I was there in person to witnes it. I'm pretty sure I would be pissed. But I understand their point and I can aknowledge that what they are doing is also part of the greatness of what our country is all about.

"It seemed like a good idea to burn some flags just because we can," added fellow organizer Sha Lar, 32, of Santa Cruz.

Look at the name of the individual who stated that, doesn't that really explain all we need to know.

And as a pre-emptive strike to you freakshows who will make the inevitbale racist accusation, I am proud to say that I will gladly express my freedom of speech on someone's face if this happens anywhere near me.

It's everyone's right to be offended at anything they are offended by, not just radicals with no life.

Yes, it's a right to express it, it's also the right of folks to not agree with it.

These people are PETA-like imbeciles.

The left's answer to Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell.

Who is saying otherwise. You are the straw man argument king around here.

I think we ought to give the flag burners a chance for legtimacy.

Under recognized uses of the American flag, the proper way to dispose of a descrated or tattered flag is to burn it in a solemn fashion by members of the American Legion (might include the VFW).

So, if one is caught burning an American flag, they are obviously asking to become prospective members of the American Legion...so, get 'em signed up, then ship 'em off for basic training.

People like this make swing voters detest the left. Much like meme they are the best thing to ever happen to the right wing politics.
