*$)# congress

oh, i went to the post office today to mail a box to my sister whose going to be in michigan for a few weeks. and when i got there, the post office guy seemed to be in an upset mood. now, i’ve talked to this guy many times before, his birthday was a few days ago, and i think he remembers me from a conversation we had then. anyways, he takes my box, and then says, “can you believe what they did to the pledge?” and i had no idea what he was talking about, so he tells me that it’s now unconstitutional to say the pledge in schools anymore. i didn’t believe him. then he said the part about “…one nation, under God…” that part there makes it unconstitutional. now, i’m not really big on religion, i don’t knock it, and i respect others’ religions. but banning the pledge for something like that? are they serious? i remember saying the pledge all throughout my elem., middle, and high school years. i can’t imagine not saying it really. i know sometimes it seemed to be something you just recited from memory without any thought, but if you really think about what it is saying, it’s the definition of America. post 9-11, i would think that the pledge hits home for many more people now. yet, now it’s unconstitutional to say the one thing that binds all americans together as a country. i’m sorry, but that is complete BS.

What do you think?

  1. I saw a brief thing about it on the news. i heard some part of congress (don’t know which) voted 99% to 0 that it was an outrageous thing to consider passing on. so i believe the first half of the battle is over. it wouldn’t be for FL though, it’s for Cali, Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska, and a few others in the west. It was started because an athiest parent sued over that one line and saying it wasn’t fair to people who didn’t believe. I highly doubt she’s going to win this and it’s just as inconsiderate of her to everyone else as it is vice versa.

bad day
