    sure, go ahead and break it.  that's why its a real stretch to call the flag code "law" in the first place, rather than just "suggestions."

    •  There are only a couple clauses (0+ / 0-)

      in the Constitution that include penalties.  Does that mean that requiring religious tests is actually fair game, because there's no penalty included?

      Politics means controlling the balance of economic and institutional power. Everything else is naming post offices.
