I spent a long time preparing and installing a US flag/pole and the
I also spent 7 years in the Navy.
I hate Clinton, I consider Kerry to be a traitor, and if asked should
we have invaded Iraq I'll be the first to say yes.
But if this complete bullshit should ever alter the constitution - I'll
rip down and burn every flag I see, after I burn the flag that draped
my father's coffin.
I don't often agree with Democrats, but this makes a lot of sense. See the
Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said, "If the flag needs protection at all, it
needs protection from members of Congress who value the symbol more than the
freedoms that the flag represents."
Since you mention it, Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC), who started the
freedom fries thing, now regrets it, says the U.S. invaded Iraq with
no justification, and has introduced legislation to begin withdrawing
U.S. forces by autumn 2006:

The people of Nazi Germany were fooled in 1936, just as the Bush

especially outside the US. Almost without exception, the Presidency
makes the incumbent a "centrist."

That's why nobody ask your opinion. Idiot.

Absolutely. This ought to be addressed by statute, not a constitutional
amendment. You save that for basic concepts. The Constitution is the framework
for all our laws.... it should not be a law itself.
This is inappropriate. Don't they have anything IMPORTANT to do?
That's why the Founding Fathers wisely required the consent of three-fourths
of the states, too, before amending the Constitution. There's much more common
sense, and a lot less political posturing, in the state legislatures than in

Hard to tell, but I'd say in general both traits are at least as
prevalent and in many cases easily more so...although sense of the
comparison is reversed in one case, you'll catch the drift, hopefully.
True, just as some Congresses are better than others...but the blanket
assertion that there's more "common sense" and less "political
maneuvering" in State legislatures is just simply not defensible...
Actually, most representatives of both houses on both sides of the aise
at both State and Federal levels have, on the whole, been "reasonable"
and fairly impressive individuals <as individuals>, whether I've agreed
w/ them or not. There are, of course, some that are simply
"off-the-wall" in some sense or another, but, by and all, they're
relatively few in number. It's combining them in packs and placing them
in abnormal environments and poking them w/ sticks that causes much of
the chaos... :)
imo, ymmv, $0.02, etc., ...
I didn't say "political maneuvering". I said "political posturing". Not the
same thing at all. And I think that *is* defensible, when you consider the
posturing that goes on all the time in Washington simply because they have a
big stage to do it on.
Doug Miller (alphageek at milmac dot com)
Very little difference in the end, imo...altho I didn't intend to change
the word, I stand by the conclusion--the level of apperent <posturing>
is only reflective of the relative amount of coverage one sees.
Spending <significant> time in the halls of any state legislature will
soon convince one of the similarity in the environments and the
