"Not all of us can afford to send our kids to private schools."
WTF? Your too poor for free school?

This Just In
HA HA! When I read this, I read it as, "We listen to Rush Limbaugh, cut taxes, and we all voted for President Bush, this action is outrageous."
Wait, I think I just fixed it...

I'm getting a big "We're teh majority so we can opress j00!11!!!" vibe from superpawn here.
"So, we must do with the absolutely atrocious Public Schools, and we have to deal with you"
Oh, believe me, we know the feeling.
"But whatever you do, don't impose your beliefs on us."
..ha...ha? Oh, the hypocrisy is killing me inside.
The rest is kind of boring and not worth replying to.

As one who lives in the Midwest let me apologize for this idiot.
And no, the vast majority are not like this guy. Most of us are actually quite pleasant and sane.

AMEN BRO. Super! Preach it, brother! I especially like what you say about leaving us and the way we raise our kids alone! I have written some very timely books and articles about how to raise children. These articles help will help you raise Godly boys who will become Godly men, just like my son David Hyles, whom I must say, I am very proud of! I also teach you how to raise your boys so as to prevent them from becoming afflicted with gayness.

I'm certian if the pledge stated "under Buddah" you'd be offended.
If you can't take the medication, don't dish it out.
12/23/2007 6:48:26 AM
"We listen to Rush Limbaugh, cut taxes, and we all voted for President Bush."
These actions are outrageous, and I can't understand how you could possibly be from the same version of reality as me.
12/23/2007 6:48:54 AM
Except that the words have only been in there what, 55 years?
They haven't been there for most of the pledge's history, dumbass.
12/23/2007 6:58:27 AM
I really don't care about the whole "under God" thing, but would like to see it removed just to troll this dumbass and people like him.

@Dr. Kent Hovind: How the hell did you manage to spell your name correctly "Dr" Hovind?
12/23/2007 7:27:23 AM
"And secondly, if it Unconstitutional to have the words, then it is Unconstitutional to take them out."
Well, I'm convinced. In other news, if it's against the law to kill someone, it's also against the law not to kill someone.

How does listening to Rush Limbaugh and voting for George Bush make you "extremely conservative?"
Neither call for an overall reduction in government authority.
12/23/2007 7:29:23 AM
"But whatever you choose, leave us and the way we raise our children alone."
Umm... yeah. About that part. If I have to leave you and the way you raise your children alone, please be kind enough to leave me and the way I raise my children alone.
Or go homeschool your children.
12/23/2007 7:31:58 AM
Wow. That's a lot of stupid.

Since United States is one of the most violent countries in the world, nobody cares a danm about your "pledge". And if it's inconstitutional, it's inconstitutional. Even if atheism were a religion and taking those words didn't hurt any religion(and it doesn't), they have rights too. Freedom of religion doesn't mean freedom to IMPOSE my religion.
12/23/2007 8:31:57 AM
"We listen to Rush Limbaugh,"
I stopped caring at that point.

Shiny mirror on the wall.

it's interesting how the religious/patriot end of the market is always telling people they don't agree with to leave. Have they any idea what the impact of that would be?! Putting aside all the inventions etc of atheists, there are taxes, services, industry that depend on the "ungodly".
BTW, most mature nations don't need a pledge of allegiance - it is just assumed as part of one's birthright. Across Europe one sees the memorials to the war dead - so it must "work"

I feel bad for public schools -- they always get the brunt of the attack. Education is what you make of it; if you want to learn, you'll learn. If you don't want to learn, then you won't. In your case, your poor children won't get an education, regardless of what kind of school they attend, because you're too busy brainwashing them and not allowing them to explore various avenues of life.

God has no place in Public Life. He's not a citizen and doesn't pay taxes.
12/23/2007 10:57:49 AM
The funny thing is, taking the words "under God" out of the pledge don't necessarily mean that your God can't be important to you. It just means that those words aren't going to be in the pledge.
It's not like anyone is trying to make the pledge say "one nation under the Flying Spaghetti Monster" or "one nation under absolutely no God at all."
But the "don't impose your beliefs on us" at the end makes me REALLY hope that this is a poe. I know I'm wrong, though...
