    Happy Flag Day, everyone!

    Long may it wave!
    Thanks!

    California_Peggy agrees and posts a nice pic of a flag. But then.

    3. For some reason

    I view the flag as a symbol of slavery, oppression, ethnic cleansing (see native Americans) war and corporate profit.

    4. The flag is a piece of cloth

    Screw the flag!

    The so-called pledge of allegiance was created by a publisher of a children's literature magazine at about the turn of the 20th century. It took years, and a World War to bring it to Congress where it was adopted, with some modifications, mostly political.

    In 1954, in the midst of McCarthyism and anti-Soviet politics -- that hedonistic, atheist country -- the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic organization, put forth a bill that was adopted by both houses of Congress to add under God to the text.

    Look up the history yourself.

    As a proud government employee, once with a DOD secret clearance, and then as a public school teacher, I can state that the only required constitutional oath is to swear allegiance to the US Constitution.

    The flag is nothing but a pale symbol for that which we should all recognize our allegiance, the US Constitution.

    The flag is a piece of cloth, not the body of law that makes the US great. I wish more people would realize that.
    A crappy liberal teacher and possibly the leaker for the Obama administration!

    Someone may certainly feel free to correct me as I am probably mistaken, but I would think that at some governmental facilities and secure locations even the person that cleans the toilet needs a DOD secret clearance so that in itself carries little weight.

    No kidding. The only people who brag about such a thing are people who don't deserve such clearance. That may ultimately be why longshit doesn't have it any more.

    They're still using that stale recycled schtick? That was ancient even before the sixties were over. They really want for originality over at the du. I think if that's all I could come up with when someone got the ball rollin on a good ole flag hatin thread, then I'd have the sense to just shut the hell up. That's one of those statements that as soon as you finish hitting the "reply" button, you just know it's going to sound friggin stupid. Oops! Delete...delete.... delete!

    I wonder what they'd say if they also knew it was the birthday of the United States Army.

    God bless all those men and women past and present who gave so much and asked so little in return.
