Thursday letters: Strip flag stompers of all benefits

I have a suggestion for dealing with those who participate in the social media fad of stomping and dancing on the American flag. First, federal, state and local governments should terminate any benefits the perpetrators receive (Social Security, Medicare, Obamacare, EBT cards, etc.). Second, the federal government should use the savings to purchase the perpetrators a one-way ticket to Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, Iraq or Syria.

After all, no decent, godly, law-abiding citizens would want to live in a country they so hate or receive handouts from a nation whose flag they so desecrate.
