To all those who agree to flag-burning and flag-desecration "rights," I challenge your loyalty to this nation. Have you pledged allegiance to the United States? Maybe you have pledged allegiance to your-selves and, if it gives you any personal gain, you are willing to desecrate sacred and holy things in the name of sacred, holy "rights."

I forgive the Iranians for burning the flag because they have been kept in ignorance by their leaders and forefathers. You have not had that privilege and are responsible for the freedom that you have been given. Do not destroy the American flag because you are angry with a politician. The politician isn't worth it. Are you?Collin Simonsen
