The Senate did the right thing

OK, I know this puts me with some interesting company, but that is fine with me. This nation is not founded on race, religion, geography, or iconography. This is a nation founded in ideas. The very idea that the fascist fetishism of the secular worship of flags, symbols, or personalities would be inscribed in The Constitution that I swear to "support and defend" makes me sick.

I am an American because those in my bloodline were trying to get away from that sort of crap. You protect someone who you consider an asshat, so you are protected when someone considers you an asshat. Once again - the Senate did the right thing. An amendment against flag desecration is not worthy of this great nation.
