Scott Adams on the flag-burning amendment. In case you didn't guess, I agree with him. And now, to sum this all up:
Amendment: I'm not garbage!
I'm an amendment to be,
Yes, an amendment to be,
And I'm hoping that they'll ratify me!
There's a lot of flag burners
Who have got too much freedom,
And I want to make it legal for policemen to beat 'em!
'Cause there's limits to our liberties,
'Least I hope and pray that there are,
'Cause those liberal freaks go too far.
Boy: But why can't we just make a law against flag burning?
Amendment: Because that law would be unconstitutional. But if we change the Constitution...
Boy: Then we could make all sorts of crazy laws!
Amendment: Now you're catching on.
Boy: But what if people say you're not good enough to be in the Constitution?
Amendment: Then I'll crush all opposition to me
And I'll make Ted Kennedy pay.
If he fights back, I'll say that he's gay.
Narrator: Good news, amendment. They ratified you. You're in the U.S. Constitution.
Amendment: Oh, yeah! Door's open, boys!
Lisa: So it's true. Some cartoons do encourage violence.
When I'm back from Wisconsin, I'll get you guys and gals the goods again.
