We're talking about flag desecration, man

USA Today reports that upcoming Senate vote on Flag Desecration Amendment will be a cliffhanger. It further states that there's been one frickin flag desecration all year.

Vache Folle has some thoughts. Here are mine, with apologies to Allen Iverson.

We're sitting here, looking at a $400 billion deficit, and we're talking about flag desecration. I mean listen, we're sitting here talking about flag desecration, not abortion, not medical marijuana, not Supreme Court decisions that actually affect people's lives, but we're talking about flag desecration. Not the war where our boys go out there and die, waking up every day thinking it might be their last, but we're talking about flag desecration, man. How silly is that?

Now I know that patriotism means a lot to people and I'm not shoving that aside like it don't mean anything. I know it's important, I honestly do but we're talking about flag desecration. We're talking about flag desecration man. We're talking about flag desecration. We're talking about flag desecration. We're not talking about Social Security. We're talking about flag desecration. When you come to Washington D.C., and you see the inner-city crime, you've seen the War on Drugs right, you've seen people lose their property, but we're talking about flag desecration right now.


  1. What are you talking about? :-)

  2. Schiavo, flag desecration, anti-lynching, official day of this or that. We should dock their pay for every minute wasted on this crap.

    Interesting trivia-The USA is the ONLY country in the world that refuses to dip it's flag to The Rings at The Olympics Opening Ceremony. This despite that...
    "The goal of the Olympic Movement is to contribute to building a peaceful and better world by educating youth through sport practised without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play" (Olympic Charter)." AHAHAHAHAH! Could the current administration even comprehend that? "...burn down de flag, an' burn down de parliament, burn down de flag, like ya burnin' a one ounce bag..." Ya Mon! Greg.
