That explains why he didn't put "under god" in it !!!

Thankfully we fixed that up for him after he passed away. You're welcome, francis.

I agree. Shouldn't pledge your allegiance to anything, especially a fuging flag.

Hopefully you're teaching your boys to avert their eyes from the American Flag and refuse to speak during the Allegiance every morning at school.

Am I the only one who didn't really care about doing it in school and then after I started getting older realized that it was stupid as fug? True story, one time in 3rd grade one of my classmates was beaten by her Dad because she didn't "show proper respect" during the national anthem.

I didn't have kids because the world is full of people like you.

Wouldn't removing the flag altogether give every citizen a chance at not being offended?

Think of the kids whose right biceps are slightly larger than their left from all those years of pledging.

Look at how much faster we could get our sporting events. I bet it would keep people from leaving early from the games to beat traffic.

i'd rather kids in school begin the day reciting the bill of rights than offering up some vague, nationalistic, jingoistic prayer to a piece of cloth

isn't there a commandment or something against this? false idols and graven images?

hypocrites

Yeah I don't like the pledge more than I don't give a poo about the national anthem. My son's school spends the first 5-10 mins everyday reciting multiple pledges and songs about America and his school.
