Flag Burning is ok by Jim Webb
This is an easy issue. You either support flag burning or you don't. There is no middle ground on this issue. Jim Webb thinks burning our flag is ok. That is a great talking point for us here in SWVA. I plan on visiting the local VFW's with that info, you should also. When someone mentions Jim Webb to me I will gladly offer up his support of flag burning. I remember in 1976 being glued to a tv watching the Chicago Cub's play the LA Dodgers. Does anyone else remember that game? Lunatics jump onto the field with lighter fluid and a flag. Before they can ignite Old Glory Cub's outfielder Rick Monday swoops in and grabs the flag! Jim Webb would have knocked Monday down protecting the flag burners so called freedom of speech. You can hear Rick Monday's account of this here. This week in the Senate Sen Allen will be fighting for legislation to once again make flag burning illegal.
