Hacking the Anti-Flag Burning Amendment
Law Prof. Michael Froomkin is hacking the anti-flag burning amendment before it has even passed (Flag Desecration In Every Day Life). He received a new credit card in the mail that had an image of the US Flag on it. Wouldn't want to desecrate that by putting it in your wallet and sitting on it all day long, would we? So Michael gave the credit card company a call:
Me: We received our new credit cards today. They have a picture of the American flag on them. I dont think this is an appropriate use of the American flag. The card will get dirty, it will have stuff run over it, this will amount to flag desecration. Its not right.
Female voice (after slight delay) : would you like to speak to a supervisor and see what he can do for you?
Read the whole humorous thing. This gives me a thought. Why not write a bunch of companies and complain about their use of the US Flag and your fear of being held guilty for the crime of desecrating the flag through use of their products (conveniently cc'd to your Senator)?
