it's hot this summer, let's use the flag for a hammock...
cnn reported that the feds have outlawed the pledge of allegiance in schools. the federal court decision said, in part:
"To recite the pledge is not to describe the United States; instead it is to swear allegiance to the values for which the flag stands: unity, indivisibility, liberty, justice and -- since 1954 -- monotheism."it also says that no child is forced to say the pledge. um, hello? where did you go to school? here's a couple of my favorite new versions:
I pledge blind obedience to the corporate flag, nd the ruling class in america, and to the to Government for which it stands, one corporation enforced by God, with injustice and brutality to alland then my favorite, from matt groening:
i pledge alienation, to the drag, of work and school in america; and to the repugnance for which it stands: all nations, under guard, with liberalism and justifications for all.teach em to the kids! yay!
