Flag Burning

FLAG BURNING….Still no budget? Who cares? As promised, it appears that the Republican leadership in the Senate plans to waste time this session bringing up a cynical flag burning amendment whose sole purpose is to make Democrats fidget.

Maybe some bright Democrat should propose an amendment that creates a new entitlement requiring the federal government to provide a new flag once a year to every family in America. Not only is it the patriotic thing to do, but it would help small, family-owned, American flag-making businesses. Do I hear a motion?
