Solving the flag-burning "problem"

The proposed one-line amendment to the U.S. Constitution against flag-burning ("The Congress shall have power to prohibit the physical desecration of the flag of the United States") is now on its way to the Senate. I'm reminded of a simple solution to the flag-burning "problem" offered a few years ago by the late Samuel Edward Konkin III.

"If the statists had any brains (which, as we know, is self-contradictory)," Sam said, "they would make flags out of asbestos."
