US approves flag burning amendment 1

US House members have approved a constitutional amendment to ban flag burning. The bill will be passed to the senate for voting and there is a good chance it will pass the senate.

It would give Congress the power to ban desecration of the American flag. In 1989 the Supreme Court ruled that flag-burning was a protected free-speach right, so this bill will overturn that decision.

If the bill is passed, the American government will be one step closer to replacing the bible with American history books in all churches in the US. Then the next step will be to ban all critisism of the American government, and we might even see a new bill that bans Americans from getting married to descendents from countries that are non-US allies.

    I haven’t seen this story in any of my news sources yet, but I have to say the US Supreme Court decision that allows municipalities to retake property in favour of developments that will promote higher property tax schemes is most disturbing.

    For all the rhetoric in the States concerning inalienable private property rights – this is a real surprise. What’s the world coming to?
