True dat, Irish..but then the far right don't want to spend money on feeding the poor, taking care of the elderly, educating the young..so instead they pontificate endlessly about superficial non essentials.
I'm the same a BRIDIE5. Learned it the old way, then switched to the "new" way. Don't care either way. The pledge of allegiance was started by a FLAG COMPANY for God's sake! Santa Claus was started by Coke! Let's talk about feeding the poor! educating the young, healing the sick! The rest is fluff.
If the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence it's probably astro turf.
It was part of "The Pledge" when I learned it; so after all these years, I just automatically say "UNDER GOD", along with the rest of the words. I am NOT a person who "likes" CHANGE, so I would miss it.
It's a non-issue for me too. I was 10 yo when they stuck it in the Pledge..stumbled the first few times getting used to it, now don't really care one way or another. Those that get all discombobulated over trivia have too much time on their hands IMHO. We have much bigger fish to fry in this country.
so the cold war era conservatist (McCarty and the likes) had under God added into the pledge of allegiance. I don't have a problem with it and I don't have a problem with those who find it offensive either, I'm okay with myself saying it.
What's your opinion on this?
USING SP TO HELP YOU KEEP TRACK OF WEIGHT LOSs, CALORIE INTAKE AND EXERCISE "IS" THE SHORTCUT!!!!!! sTOP TRYING TO CONSUME A MAGIC WEIGHTLOSS PILL, OY!
