“Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag — if they do, there must be consequences — perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!”
-Donald Trump on Twitter

I searched this blog for the word "flag," and found that I have blathered about this issue a couple of times before. Some of the posts were so long ago, I don't really remember writing them.
2003 Remember Flag Burning?
2005 Here We Go Again
2006 Constitutional Correction
It's not that I have particularly strong feelings about this issue. I just think that it is nicely representative of the fact that even though everyone says they are for 'freedom,' there's not a lot of consensus on what that exactly means.
Anyway, check out Popehat's comments on this latest kerfuffle.

Brain: Well judging from the weather, it looks like we’ll be spending today inside. That’s OK though, because there is a lot of stuff we can get done and not waste this Sunday afternoon.
Body: WE MUST SLEEPING NOW! DEEP SLEEPING!
Brain: Body, we slept nine hours last night. It’s only 2:00 in the afternoon. Why would we need to sleep now?
Body: OUTSIDE IS THE BIG LOUD RAINING! OUTSIDE IS FREEZING COLD! CANNOT HUNT! CANNOT FORAGE! MUST SLEEP AND CONSERVE ENERGY!
Brain: Look, we have discussed this before. We live next door to a supermarket. We do not need to hunt or forage tomorrow or any other time.
Body: MUST SAVE ENERGY TO PREPARE FOR COMBAT!
Brain: *Sigh* And what upcoming combat awaits us?
Body: NEIGHBORING TRIBE ACROSS RIVER IS DIFFERENT! THEY LOOK DIFFERENT! THEY TALK AND ACT DIFFERENT! THEY WILL RAID US AND TAKE ALL OUR FOOD AND WOMEN!
Brain: That “neighboring tribe” is called Sanchong, and it’s really more of a district. I assure you that they will not attack us and take all our women.
Body: WE MUST ATTACK STRANGE SANCHONG TRIBE AND TAKE ALL THEIR FOOD AND THEIR WOMEN! SLEEP NOW AND PREPARE FOR BATTLE TOMORROW!
Brain: Mmpfgh. What happened? Where am I? Who… What time is it?
*looks at clock*
It’s… FIVE O’CLOCK already? For fuck’s sake, body! What did you do?
Body: CONSERVED PRECIOUS ENERGY IN COLD RAINY WEATHER! I HAVE SAVED OUR LIFE! AGAIN!

K: Hey nephew, come here.
I: What's up?
K: We're going to do an important science experiment.
I: OK, what do I have to do?
K: Not much. Just sit in this chair and give me your arm. And don't scream.
I: What do you mean, 'don't scream'?
K: *takes out hypodermic needle and tube* Do you know how to use one of these?

I know that our relationship has been a turbulent one. And it is true that I have said some unkind things about you in the past. But as of today, all is forgiven. Let us happily stride forth into a new era of mutual benefits - an era of more profits for you, and ever-increasing obesity for me.
