Not A Simple Question

Dean has a good roundup of the reaction to the proposed flag-burning amendment's rejection. He captures the tenor of the debate and shares his own opinions, as well.

There seems to be a large group stuck in the middle who venerate the flag without worshipping it. These are the folks who believe that our soldiers fight for the ideals of our country as represented by the flag. They have now become the targets of those who believe the flag, in and of itself, is what is being fought for.

I would be in the middle like a majority of people. my solution would be as follows.

Yes you can deface the flag and have it not be a criminal offense, but in turn you also stand the risk of getting your ass beat in by anyone while you are defacing the flag with no criminal or civil recourse against the ass beater
