"The stage is being set for an election-year battle over Sen. Orrin Hatch's latest effort to amend the Constitution to outlaw flag burning. While passage of the amendment remains unlikely, Hatch is moving quickly to move the amendment through the Senate Judiciary Committee, which he chairs, preparing it for a fight before the full Senate... The measure, which has 56 co-sponsors, would nullify a 1989 Supreme Court ruling in which the justices said that desecration of the flag was a form of free expression, protected under the First Amendment... 'American soldiers have put their lives on the line to defend the flag and what it represents,' Hatch said." [Wrong. Not the flag itself, just what it represents. Get it straight.]
