    I bought a new flag for flag day, and set it up on the porch, went inside to grab a drink, came back outside, and saw the flag was on the ground... So, I spent flag day burning the newly bought U.S. flag, the way my dad taught me how to do it, if/when a US flag touches the ground.

    So much sadness, but on the flip-side, it really burned brightly and helped kick start my grille, had some good ribs on it

    The flag code does not require that the flag be burned if it touches the ground. It is perfectly acceptable to wash, and, if needed, mend a flag.
    No right is held more sacred, or is more carefully guarded, by the common law than the right of every individual to the possession and control of his own person, free from all restraint or interference of others, unless by clear and unquestionable authority of law. Union Pacific Rail Co. vs Botsford as quoted in Terry v Ohio.

    Oh~ Well, I just did what I remember my dad said a few times when I was growing up, cut the stripes off, and burn those, fold and keep the blue starry field. I don't recall where he said he learned it, but always said it was the honorable way to treat a fallen flag.

    Then again, Always said in the brass ball on top of a flag pole at military bases, was a single pistol round, and a razor, I still haven't figured that one out.

    A healthy dose of skepticism helps
