Great background checking?
It's all wrong. LOL.
I was not even born in the 70s. Nor was I in Denmark.
Artrag gets an awful lot of shit wrong. Daily. Most of it stemming from his wrongful suspicions and accusation of other members and their true IDs.
See..liars think ALL of us lie.
I hate to have to admit it, but burning the American flag in a sort of public demonstration or protest, so long as said demo is done peaceably and orderly, infringing on no laws or safety, IS a tenet of our Freedom of Speech. That is, our 1st Amendment Rights.
Having said that, I also admit that in my past on the two occasions I actually witnessed somebody doing this, I felt like kicking the living shit out of them. And it took every fiber of my being to restrain myself from doing so.
The first time I saw somebody burn the flag was when I was in college. Undergrad school at the U of M. Playing hockey. We were in DC in the off-season (Springtime) for a hockey Instructional Camp conducted by some coaches on the US National Team.
Me and three teammates were seeing the sights of DC, after practice, and were near the reflecting pond that's adjacent to the Washington Monument. A group of a dozen or so demonstrators burned a flag in protest of our "non-involvement" in knocking out some African warlords who were allegedly denying the peoples over there their allotted UN food/material aids.
So, yeah, all the protesters were black. African blacks.
We approached these guys and my teammate immediately grabbed the nigger holding the flag by the neck and threw him into a concrete statue. LOL Then he began to stomp out the fire on the flag. I was actually going to join in on the other fuckwads, but they were backing off. And then I saw some DC cops heading over our way so I called my guys off and we jogged out of there.
So, yeah, even though the majority of the assholes who burn American flags in public deserve to have their heads put through a wall, to pass legislation denying this act is to begin upon a slippery slope. After all: first the Government denies burning the flag, and then what might be next? Banning ANY sort of public dissent? See, this is not a good path to embark upon.
The pasted quote was indeed from our Declaration of Independence.
And no, technically, that document is not one of Laws that are necessarily legislated and enforced in America today.
But the debate topic was regarding whether or not any sort of universal declaration of human rights has ever been written and accepted by all.
Thus, the first thing that came to my mind, as well as the best example of this that I could think of was the DOI.
Hope this helps.
Those cartoons were mundane and juvenile and their type can be found all over the USA. In both print and on the internet.
And so they don't offend me at all.
What does offend me is when literal libtard twats like you who don't even fucking live here tell me my country does not have freedom of speech. This is so wrong as to be laughable. A quick Google search will show you all the irreverent and even obscene uncensored material in this country that you want. What the fuck do you think the Internet is? If we didn't have freedom of speech we would have no internet. Like North Korea.
We fucking invented it. And as a veteran I take further issue with you denying we have it when many veterans have died defending it. And also died bailing your frog rifle dropping asses out of the fire more than once.
So...a little respect would be nice.
Hey, here's an ad I saw the other day in a gun magazine.......
For sale, French WWII rifle. Excellent condition. Never fired. Dropped once.
Where can you find 60,100,000 French jokes?
How do you kill a Frenchman?
Slam the toilet lid on his head while he's getting a drink.
Hmmm....I forget, so please remind me:
What Party was in Office in the 1960's when LBJ instituted his "Great Society" Legislation that began the end of segregation? Thus, paving the road to ensure that Blacks were not to be oppressed or judged solely upon the color of their skin?
Which Party has been in Office for the past eight years, during which time our society has a whole has made bigger and more drastic strides than ever before in implementing Political Correctness and tolerance and the Rights of minorities as well as those of aberrant gender and sexual preferences?
What Party was JFK with?
What Party was Bush the Younger with, when he got over 6000 young Americans killed in an ill-waged misbegotten war? And when he said judged all those not in favor of this war as "being against us if you're not with us?"
Which Party was FDR with? And which Party implemented the New Deal, that got us out of a Depression? And though non-judgmental legislation, allowed many discriminated against Americans to get back to work?
My impression of you reading this post.........
Our U.S. Constitution tells you all you need to know on this issue.........
