flag burning is a specific form of free speech. constitutional law, by its nature - like most law - is about applying abstract legal theories to an ever changing society in hopes to maintain law, order and equality. when the framers of the constitutional wrote the first amendment do you think in their wildest dreams someone would have to consider the question of flag burning being free speech? i would wager to bet no. i think you're a bit off base but i appreciate the attempt. by the by, obama taught constitutional law at U of C...so i think he knows a thing or too...i'm just saying.
