    the Reps always run on these items

    Kos remind yourself what you felt during  the time you were in service. Such a bill would camoflague the Reps poor treatment of Vets  as a partisan screen, Hillary outflanked them.

    I've posted this before, it was something kerry and Edwards refused to establish during their run and it would have Tsunami'd the swift boaters:

    This is an opportunity

    •  cpdified three items: (none)
      1)Flag Burning without a burening permit Consitutes pollution, let's combine the language with the stornger era of EPA regulations.
      2)Combine this with local ordinance for litter(the remained of flag) when intent to discredit others is the issue. Hillary has established the idea that INTENT is the key and if one proves this was done to intimidate others the vague wording could easily apply to crossburners.

      3) The damage would be upon the establishment of intent, or negligence in public venues. This would of course open the TORT statute to a loophole of cieling enforcement. Make Republicans take away the price tag they place on Patriotism. Once this is enacted the 14th Amendment allows it to apply in every instance. Equal protection would become part of the TORT waiver in such regards and allow every person wronged to seek just comepnsation, AND damages. Damges do not have to be compensatory they can become punitative in the size of their reward.

      •  sorry for the typos (none)
        didn't proofread enough...
        •  Typos? Shouldn't it be Clinton - (R)? (none)
          Hillary is trying to beat out Lieberman for being the most Republican Democrat since Zmelly Miller melted down and challenged Chrissy Matthews of HardlyBalls to a spitball duel at dawn.

          Good thing we have Democratic Primaries:

          Cindy Sheehan On Jonathan:

          I am so pleased that Jonathan Tasini has stepped forward to challenge Senator Clinton and to take her on as an anti-war candidate.

          I encourage the people of New York to take a hard look at Mrs. Clinton's dismal record on the illegal and immoral invasion and occupation of Iraq.

          Then take a hard look at what Jonathan is saying.

          We as people who strive for peace and justice should not support a candidate who advocates for continued killing on the basis of flimsy reasoning. It is time to hold the pro-war Democrats responsible for what they are saying and doing also.

          I fully endorse the idea of peace with justice and support the message that Jonathan is espousing, but I cannot endorse candidates because of my organization's tax-exempt status.

          I thank Jonathan for his leadership, for his support and I look forward to our continuing efforts to end the war.

          Bye! Bye, Hillary! Bye! Bye!

    •  Nah... (none)
      ...Instead of undermining the Constitution why not instead run on the promise to enact legislation to ban the Republican Party from selling the organs of fallen servicepeople to the Red Chinese? That it hasn't happened yet (to our knowledge) isn't relevant, since when's the last time anyone ever burned and American flag in the US?

      9/11 + 4 Years = Katrina... Conservatism Kills.
