What is it with Republicans and flag burning?
Advertisements [?]
I just heard on AAR that Republicans are bringing up an amendment to the constitution in the Senate that will pretty much outlaw flag burning. When was the last time you heard about flag burning on American soil? Why is this an issue?? Or is this going to be something that they try to bring up every 10 years or so?
