Mittens took an oath so did his frat boy VP selection……. How has that worked out thus far?
Does the salute look familiar? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pledge_of_Allegiance
The Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy (1855–1931), who was a Baptist minister, a Christian socialist, and the cousin of socialist utopian novelist Edward Bellamy (1850–1898). The original “Pledge of Allegiance” was published in the September 8 issue of the popular children’s magazine The Youth’s Companion as part of the National Public-School Celebration of Columbus Day, a celebration of the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus‘s arrival in the Americas. The event was conceived and promoted by James B. Upham, a marketer for the magazine, as a campaign to instill the idea of American nationalism by selling flags to public schools and magazines to students.
Remember this next time you berate the Chocolate Jesus for refusing to say the pledge:
Prominent legal challenges in the 1950s were brought by the Jehovah’s Witnesses, a group whose beliefs preclude swearing loyalty to any power other than God, and who objected to policies in public schools requiring students to swear an oath to the flag. They objected on the grounds that their rights to freedom of religion as guaranteed by the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment were being violated by such requirements.
And we have this:
We have all been sold down the river……….. and it did not happen over night. Go vote for your MITTENS AND FRAT BOY VP. You can wipe your ass with an oath, it’s not worth the paper it’s written on.
