You have a point. Honoring things like the flag should be part of your upbringing, and when you have to call the cops in, the whole point is lost. Jim

I've never intentionally desecrated the flag, and don't ever intend to do so. I choose to honor this nation's substantive embodiments like democracy, equality, diversity, community, solidarity, sacrifice, compassion, personal growth, etc. I leave trivial symbolism to those who worship scowling eagle tee-shirts, yellow ribbon magnets, and the like.

I think if it were an either/or then one would say you are correct about priorities. I personally agree that it is an upbringing thing but then again I believe in those arcane rules of etiquette about m'am and sir and opening doors for women and all that so maybe I am not the person to ask.

But there is a difference between arcane rules and laws.

Simple solution is to remove the laws that address the issues.

This is why I have always fought very hard for Freedom of Speech but also stood up for the responsibilities that go along with it.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
