Some students were outraged by the decision, and one woman said her son stood up in class and recited the pledge anyway.

Good for him. Always refreshing when they spout their political indoctrination voluntarily.

RedPhoenix122: EvilEgg: It always amuses me when the "this isn't fascist Russia" types insist on the Pledge.

I wouldn't mind saying it if we could omit the "under God" part that was added in the 50's to protect the US against the communists.


Well it worked didn't it?

Look libtard, if it weren't for patriotic American kids reciting the pledge, we'd all be speaking Cuban right now.

I used to get in trouble for "violating" the mandatory minute of prayer in my state, during high school, by blowing my nose for a full minute every time.

The other day my 6 year old came home and told me that he thinks it's weird to talk about god in school.  When they make him recite the pledge he's chosen instead to say, "one nation, under donuts, with liberty and donuts for all."

It was one of those moments where I knew that I probably ought to give him some sort of lecture about being patriotic, but instead I told him I was proud that he took a stand for something he believes in instead of doing something simply because someone in a position of power said he should.

Lady Indica: Having children mindlessly recite a loyalty oath is farking creepy with or without the god part.


I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

They're pissed that their snowflakes can't participate in a National Socialist loyalty oath?  Funny, if I had kids I would be pissed if they actually were doing that.

Hah.  Funny thing, I was the one of 2 people in my class that were Jehovah's Witnesses, and had to sit the pledge out.

/Oddly enough, I ended up saying it in 2004 to swear into the military.

No such thing exists.  You do not pledge allegiance to the flag to join the military.  Did you even pay any attention to the words of the oath that you took?


I doubt it.  Half the people in my swearing in actually repeated "state your name".

I remember the Mormon church 'Bearing Testimony' during Sacrament (I think that was what it was called).  Anyways, normally the speech would start with "I know this church is true".  Similar to a meet and greet at an AA meeting, but much less fun.  Now imagine happening about 4 times during the service.
Affirmation is a hell of a thing.

ArcadianRefugee: BullBearMS: Day_Old_Dutchie: This whole "trying to blame things on the shutdown to score some points" thing is really getting far too silly.

It's part of the "who can be more petulant than a third grader" contest the two parties are having.

Thankfully, America is paying attetion.

Americans have never been more eager for a third party in American politics as the government shutdown continues to generate record levels of frustration, according to a new poll.

Sixty percent believe Democrats and Republicans are doing such a poor job a third party is needed, according to a Gallup poll out Friday, a record high in the 10 years Gallup has polled on the question. Similarly, a record-low number of Americans - 26 percent - said the current two major parties adequately represent Americans.

Also for the first time in the poll's history, when broken down by party, a majority of both Democrats and Republicans say a third party is needed.

Where's Perot?

Just another Heartland Weirdass: I think its cute when the kindergartners do it.



Ditto to that, it was a funny little surprise when our two year old son was able to recite the pledge in bits and pieces.  "Awe, Cameron's been brainwashed... that's cute, he doesn't even know what he's saying".
