Stupid Republicans!

And obviously some Democrats too. Let's get real about the whole idea of a constitutional ban on flag burning. The word is that the Senate is one vote shy of the required 2/3 vote. Just in time for the 4th of July. How patriotic of them! I bet the so-called Founding Fathers are rolling in their collective graves. This amendment goes against everything that this country was based on and it degrades the Bill of Rights. They may as well delete the whole First Amendment since it is basically ignored by the government anyway. If you don't like flag burning, then don't do it. If you don't like abortion, then don't have one. If you don't like gay marriage, then don't marry someone of the same gender. What I do with my life is my business, not the government's.

Bush once again showed us how speaking before thinking is a bad idea. Way to make fun a blind person today.

And thanks for appointing John Roberts and Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court. After yesterday's ruling that police don't have to knock if they have a warrant, pretty soon they won't need a warrant if they suspect there might be a criminal in a five mile radius. Maybe that's what the Senate will take up after they are done with this flag burning amendment. They can have a no warrant amendment and just delete the Fourth Amendment. The government just ignores it anyway. The new head of the CIA doesn't seem to think that there is such a thing as probable cause or warrants. They must be a figment of my imagination.

I can't take much more...

You haven't heard? The Bill of Rights was a communist plot perpetrated by some guys with long hair.
