by Bradley Matthews

    Please this should be common sense. The defiant should be punished.

    Anyone who burns our flag should be punished, if they are in this country and not a citizen they should be deported with no if ands or buts, if they have become citizens but not born a citizen their citizenship should be revoked and deported, if a born citizen burns the flag give them a choice, choose a country to move too or spend time in jail and pay a stiff fine

    Flag burners should be made to serve in the U.S. Army for 2 years or one year in prison and loss of citizenship.
    Much better punishment than in other countries where they actually execute people who burn national flag!

    The US flag is the representative of our great country…ANYONE who does not honor and respect it needs to leave and should never be allowed to return…if they come back as an illegal, they should be Jailed! They are not Patriots so we don’t want them Here!

    Dear Lenee: I am an attorney and I disagree with a lot of Supreme Court decisions so don’t act like the Court has the final word. The Supremes gave us the Dred Scott decision which may have sparked the civil war and they gave us Roe v Wade and Gay Marriage neither of which are God given rights under the laws of nature or of nature’s God. We always have looked at the law in reverse and said well if the Left took over could we burn the flag. I have watched and learned that the Left gives us nothing and wants to take our rights when they are in power. Maybe the balance of equities favors the respect for the flag and maybe we are going to have to push the Communists out of teaching positions in our schools or freedom is going to be short lived. And, the Leftists cheat like crazy in elections. Rest assured if the Left gets enough control there will be NO RIGHTs. We have to stop the BS somewhere and the Flag might be a good place to start.

    @Lenee. It is high time that some basic human dignity is installed in our country instead of political correctness which is killing the world. And it is our hope that with this President human dignity will prevail and all stupid laws created by even more stupid lawyers will become obsolete, thus, any action like burning the flag would be considered below human dignity!! And people who defend burning of the flag would be considered unworthy of American citizenship!

    yes, They do not have to burn the flag to make their voice known We need new people in the Supreme Court. Our Flag speaks for our country, our Veterans here and those past that have fought for the freedom of our country. One hope that may you, Mr/Ms Lenee would know that already. YOu are the one saying idiotic things right now. Anyone who burns and disrespects the flag of our country should by all means serve jail time or be deported. Maybe you will be next.

    No, the Supreme court has already indicated that flag burning is protected freedom of speech. Trump really needs to learn the law before saying idiotic things publicly. Just like tweeting idiotic and blantantly untrue statements is not illegal, netiher is flag burning. One hopes a calmer head would prevail before doing either of those things, but alas, we know that does not always happen.
