thank you

To the 34 senators who voted against the proposed flag-desecration amendment to the U.S. Constitution, thank you. If one of you had changed your mind, we would now have a chance of ratifying an ill-considered and possibly unconstitutional addition to the document that is the foundation of what freedoms we still have.

Not that I'm against amending the Constitution. I personally benefited by the 26th Amendment and was able to vote in the 1972 presidential elections. However, if we want to improve our country today, let's focus on ONE simple new amendment.

Why don't we have an amendment that prevents our goverment from desecrating the Constitution of the United States of America the way the Bush administration has been doing for the last five years?

hear hear! However, I'd put 50 on them somehow reviving this in time for the mid-terms. I can't belive that they won't use this and some other "gems" to impress the blind electorate into thinking that we're better off with the great "protectors" they are...

Not to mention the little fact that they want to ban "desecration" of the flag, and yet don't want to define the term until after the amendment gets ratified by the required 38 states.

I guess that means desecration won't include "autographing" the flag, eh?
