[B]http://www.michaelmoore.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=8242[/B] GOD help those motherfuckers if I ever see them. At the very least they'd be beaten to death, otherwise it'll be vehicular manslaughter of the whole damn lot of em! How'd you like to see that on the evening news? [B]"Man runs down flag burners with gas guzzling full sized truck?"[/B] Rick Monday had the right idea [URL]http://www.mc.maricopa.edu/dept/d46/psy/dev/Fall01/patriotism/ballgame.html[/URL]

Anybody got a link to the picture of him taking the flag? I did a search with no luck.

So, explain to me how this works. Free speech is allowed if you agree with what is being said, and not allowed if you disagree? Although I completely disagree with burning the flag, I think that restricting freedom of speech is even worse.

Sunday, April 25th IN THE NEWS: Cubs OF Rick Monday snatches an American flag from two fans who are about to set it on fire in the outfield during a game at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers win 5–4 in 10 innings. The next day, the Illinois legislature unanimously approves May 4th as Rick Monday Day.

Nothing about 'speech' in an action such as burning an American Flag! Nothing. But the US Supreme Court says there is, so, for now, there is!

[b]Pshaw! Pshaw![/b] About the time I left Louisiana for Texas, the Louisiana Legislature was considering a bill that would permit a defense to the charge of simple battery? The defense? That the victim was burning or attempting to burn the US Flag at the time of the battery! I don't know if it ever passed, but it should have! Eric The(Meanwhile....)Hun[>]:)]

As for his own flag-saving actions, Monday recognized that were he to do the same thing today, he might be arrested for violating someone else's rights. "But to hell with them," he said. "They can come and lock me up right now because if they did it again, I'd do the same thing."

Are you saying that the law would have allowed people burning the flag to be beaten? I will always come down on the side of "less government restriction is better", but if you want to go chipping away at the Bill of Rights, then knock yourself out. You'll have lots of company, I'm sure.
