Something that I don't think has been brought up yet in the flag-burning debate:
Sen. Bob Bennett's bill would have been a statute to do basically the same thing as Orrin Hatch's amendment. Only, it would have had a more immediate impact.
So, if you truly wanted to stop flag burning, you would vote for the Bennett bill, right?
Orrin Hatch voted against it.
Let me say it again: Orrin Hatch voted AGAINST a bill to ban falg burning.
You see, with Senator Hatch, it's not about actual flag burning, it's about making the statement.
That's right. The grandstanding is more important than the final product.
Speaking up about Gay, Flag-burning Latin Americans with guns is more important than actually doing something to better the situation.
