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.
Sock Ruh Tease: If I have an unwanted boner that I want to lose, I will mentally recite the Pledge of Allegiance. It usually goes away by the end of the pledge.
fusillade762: 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.
Peki: Oof. Meanwhile, my school threatened detention if I said "love" instead of "God." That took a visit from my mother to straighten out./and school officials tried very hard never to deal with my mother

Lady Indica: Having children mindlessly recite a loyalty oath is farking creepy with or without the god part.
Somacandra: Glad it got the kids talking civics, but it seems like a ham-fisted half-baked way of getting there.
NewportBarGuy: Wait, they still do that?I never got that. Do we start every work day with a pledge?
RedPhoenix122: How long until someone tries to co-opt this into "Obama's idea for the pledge of allegiance."
brandent: RedPhoenix122: Eddie Adams from Torrance: Look libtard, if it weren't for patriotic American kids reciting the pledge, we'd all be speaking Cuban right now.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?
StoPPeRmobile: 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 salvationhe 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 dayin accordance with the Scriptures.He ascended into heavenand is seated at the right hand of the Father.He will come again in gloryto judge the living and the deadand 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 sinsand I look forward to the resurrection of the deadand the life of the world to come. Amen.
I pledge allegiance to the flag covering the united naughty bits of this woman.
One fantasy, under darkness and not visible, with orgasms and releases for all.
DalaiLamaDingDong: It's hard not be so smug when I see the shiat you Americans get all huffy about.Go watch a college football game and calm down, Bubba.
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?
