I do not condone burning the United States flag. I think it’s best to ignore those who make a spectacle of themselves doing such a thing while basking in their First Amendment glory. That said, LSU graduate student Benjamin Haas is a lunatic. He plans to burn the flag in support of a (most likely) drug-induced criminal spree that happened to include burning the US flag.
Even though the United States is the world leader for earthquake-related aid in Haiti, the Obama administration has ordered relief stations NOT fly the American flag. Other countries proudly display their colors, but we have a president who is NOT proud of our country, so this is what we get.
