Via Minipundit: Carpetbagger is reporting that the U.S. House has passed an amendment to the U.S. Constitution banning the burning of the American flag. The margin more than satisfied to two-thirds requirement for such amendments.
Congress loves to spend time on meaningless “feel good” nonsense like this instead of issues that really matter to their constituents. They’re also grabbing at any opportunity to piss on the constitution and turn it into a worthless piece of paper. Crap like this simply doesn’t belong in the constitution.
This is yet another example of the government being out of touch with the people and no longer representing us. Ask 100 Americans what they consider the most important issues facing the country and I’m sure flag burning won’t be anywhere on the list. How about putting as much effort into health care or education?
