Have you ever read the complete Constitution?

You remind me of the non-Jewish neighbor kid who tried to convince me when I was 11 years old that I could eat thin crust pizza on Pesach because it's flat. "Meila" thick crust...
You mean he didn't know about Gebrokts? :o

I did read it. Where in it gives congress authority to outlaw this? Why would this be less of an expression of free speech than burning the flag?

Haha, I have similar arguments with my neighbor almost weekly.

That's not as bad as the argument with my conservative neighbor who claims I can drive because there's an Eiruv.

How about, "since milk comes from a cow you should be able to have it with meat"?

No laws regarding how it's flown. Period. Simply advice for civilians based on law that applies to federal institutions and custom.
I'm not sure that that is a correct reading. Everything is in the flag code, some things, such as taking down at night, are custom, but, as I read it, it is law that it must be illuminated if not taken down.

The intro says that this so called flag code is only compiled to help people. It even notes that the laws banning disrespect such as burning were struck down as unconstitutional

The Code is designed “for the use of such civilian groups or organizations as maynot be required to conform withregulations promulgated byone or more executive departments” of the federal government.3 Thus, the Flag Code does not prescribe any penalties for non-compliance nor does it include enforcement provisions; rather the Code functions simply as a guide to be voluntarily followed by civilians and civilian groups.

Did you put out a flag for the holiday?
