Rules For Burning The American Flag.

Burning the American flag is wrong.

For years, both the House and the Senate have managed to dodge the issue of passing a law to protect the Stars and Stripes from desecration.
So if Congress doesn’t have the guts to do something on that order, I’d like to propose an alternative.

And that is to pass a law permitting burning the American flag as a sign of protest.

However, this law would have some slight provisions.

A protester would have to perform this act in front of one these locations:
An American Legion, Disabled American Veterans, Veterans of Foreign Wars, or an Armed Forces recruitment center.

And before being allowed to burn the flag, the person wishing to do so would have to go inside one of the aforementioned buildings and make the following announcement:

“I am about to go outside and set fire to the American flag, as I do not like or respect America or what this country and the flag stands for, I feel it is my right to do this as a form of protest.”

And if the people who just heard that statement care to respond with their own form of protest, so be it.

Flag Day

Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened that day by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777.
The United States Army also celebrates the Army Birthday on this date; Congress adopted “the American continental army” after reaching a consensus position in the Committee of the Whole on June 14, 1775.

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; in August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.

Flag Day is not an official federal holiday. Title 36 of the United States Code, Subtitle I, Part A, CHAPTER 1, § 110 is the official statute on Flag Day; however, it is at the President’s discretion to officially proclaim the observance. On June 14, 1937, Pennsylvania became the first (and only) U.S. state to celebrate Flag Day as a state holiday, beginning in the town of Rennerdale. New York Statutes designate the second Sunday in June as Flag Day.

Perhaps the oldest continuing Flag Day parade is at Fairfield, Washington. Beginning in 1909 or 1910, Fairfield has held a parade every year since, with the possible exception of 1918, and celebrated the “Centennial” parade in 2010, along with some other commemorative events.

One of the longest-running Flag Day parades is held annually in Quincy, Massachusetts, which began in 1952, celebrating its 59th year in 2010. The 59th Annual Appleton Wisconsin 2009 Flag Day Parade featured the U.S. Navy. The largest Flag Day parade is held annually in Troy, New York, which bases its parade on the Quincy parade and typically draws 50,000 spectators
