    Thank you very much. Ol' Red was one of a kind.

    Two things especially stood out for me:

    "AND TO THE REPUBLIC: A state in which sovereign power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern. And government is the people, and it's from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people."

    and

    "Since I was a small boy, two states have been added to our country, and two words have been added to the Pledge of Allegiance: "under God." Wouldn't it be a pity if someone said that is a prayer, and that would be eliminated from schools too? "

    I grew up watching this great man called Red Skellton. Between him and John Wayne They were the front runners of American Justice. For all you little Basterds that refuse to say the Pledge and your parrents back you up you all need an attidude ajustment, Times a coming that you will depend apon the people that you hate so much..............and I hope I'm One.:D

    My girlfriend says yes they say the pledge every morning. She said it's just really the jehovahs witnesses that stay seated.

    I'm left wondering just what the sheeple, Politically Correct, and Democrats in this country are going to actually do, if we are ever faced with a domestic
    threat to our national security.

    At that severest of tests, there won't be any clean-ended terds for them to
    pick up, in order to give the appearance they are doing something helpful.:mad:

    They say it in Kindergarten. My 6 year old grandson gets to hold the flag in the morning.

    they oughta have a second bell for them......the first let's those that wanna recite a prayer and say the pledge of allegiance (with UNDER GOD in it), and the second is for those that could care less. IT WOULD ONLY TAKE 5 MINUTES.

    and then, @ the end of the day, when the final bell rings, those that missed the first 5 minutes of class, would be held for 5 "extra" minutes (for a second bell).

    Here's a refreshingly novel idea.

    How about if you don't want to be an AMERICAN, GTFO! An Armed Forces

    Service requirement should be put upon every family unit, in order to become a citizen.

    I find those who have paid for this country's freedoms with a piece of their

    own @$$ are a lot less likely to bandy them about or disrespect them.

    Everyone who refuses to say the pledge of allegiance or acknowledge GOD

    ALMIGHTY belongs in another country, IMO.

    Everybody wants the easy part of being American, but they instantly turn into

    whiners and democrats when it's time to pay the piper.

    I watch my family's service member's sacrifices being crapped on

    by democrats and immigrants who contribute nothing, and it makes me wanna puke.

    Those gutless, yellow, beerfarts.
