This brief is pretty interesting. http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-newdow-rio-linda.html The question presented is "Whether the entire Pledge of Allegiance (or even the explicit 2-word deification alone) violates the Establishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment, as applicable through the Fourteenth Amendment, in government schools due to its anti-libertarian use for the worship of government and in light of its history as the origin of the salute of the National Socialist German Workers' Party."
Real Americans don't pledge allegiance. Real Americans declare their independence. It is in keeping with THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE (U.S. 1776). If government's schools taught the true history of the pledge, then no child would chant it. If Americans knew the truth, then the pledge would cease to exist.
Fight the flag hags and their flag fetish. Government's schools should not teach kids to verbally fellate flags each morning. It is like a brainwashed cult of the omnipotent state. For adults it is childish. The Pledge of Allegiance is emotional masturbation.
The federal government has no place in education and it is tyrannical. Federal flags are at schools to prevent liberty and to impose National Socialism. The Pledge is the most visible sign of the USA's growing police state. Remove the Pledge from the flag, the flags from schools, and the schools from government.
Indeed, people have not a single clue as to the meaning of the Pledge
of Allegiance. Anyone having to pledge allegiance
to anything should be tipped off to the absolute
nonsense of it all, no? Because that's what it is -
it's bloody nonsense. I was at a Tiger ballgame recently,
and was walking through the concourse when the moment sprang
up for all to bow in acquiescence to God Bless America.
At the sound of the song, it was so funny: people, who were
generally walking around, talking, etc., immediately reacted
to the first few notes of the song, stopped what they were doing,
and stood there giving the finest salute they could muster for the
moment. It was creepy the way people responded and promptly struck
forth obedient postures. Pliant beings, all.
