    Default burning flags

    Burning a flag. It may be legal, it may be constitutional, but I am not sure it is right. It looks like students at LSU took a position on this and at least on this day, such foolishness will not be allowed.

    Mr Haas would be wise to start eating healthy since it will help in his recuperation.

    If someone ever tries to burn a flag in front of me, and you are there, please call a policeman and an ambulance.

    Because 1 of us is going to the hospital and 1 of us is going to jail.

    If you think I am full of BS, why don't you try it?
    To me, there are some things worth fighting for.

    Not that I agree with why he was burning the flag, but have any of you been to the events where the local VFW or AMVets do the flag burning to destroy old flags? I have been to one before turning in an old flag that I needed to get rid of, but would never throw away.

    I know it is not the same thing but the end result is the same. I know he was doing it to make a statement, but it does happen quite often for good reasons as well.

    Burning a flag has different meanings depending on the burners motivation.

    These clubs will help you find a place to burn your flag, maybe he should have talked to them.

    Here is the video link. Tuff spot for the cops to be in. That was a real powder keg. I'm glad no one got hurt and no one got arrested. It must have sucked to be hit by the garbage meant for Mr.1st amendment rights. I thought the fight was on when the soldier in the crowd started yelling "My brothers died for you!" Cooler heads thank God. Good for the LSU students. Freedom of speech works both ways .

    I have got to say, after watching this video, America and her institutions of higher learning is not lost to the left wing radical, I hate the United States of America types that populate such august institution like Berkley, Columbia and Harvard. There are those that are willing to sanction those that do not respect the United States and the symbols that represent her.

    Well done students of LSU.
