This disturbing and controversial attack on the flag lead to flag-stomping protest across the nation and on public social media. The American Flag stands for freedom and no group of protesters can take that away. To have someone desecrate the American Flag they should punish these people by…

There is no requirement or mandate beyond this to narrow the gap between government's creation of the budget document and citizen…
