The trouble with a flag burning amendment
Tuesday, Mar 16, 2004
Putting aside the saga of Diane Feinstein's strong support for a new flag-burning amendment, and her lack of consideration of the views of her constituancy, I figured out what really bugs me about such an amendment.

What happens if the amendment is passed, and someone breaks the law? How do we feel about federal prisoners incarcarated for burning a flag in defiance of the government? A State that imprisions its citizens for burning a flag is a State one step closer to Orwell.
