"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
Solders SWEAR allegiance at induction. Solders have died to keep the flag from falling or being captured, NEW Citizens have to swear allegiance facing the flag.
WHAT have these spoiled athletes done to have the RIGHT to denigrate it?
Oh, say can you see,
By the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed,
At the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, Through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched,
Were so gallantly streaming.
And the rocket's red glare,
The bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night,
That our flag was still there. Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave,
For the land of the free, and the home of the brave.
I am sick of people with NO CLUE telling ME to bend over and take it because "they" FEEL oppressed in the freest nation on earth while "earning"- and I use that term sarcastically MILLIONS of dollars and doing NOTHING in their community to fight the plights of the poor,uneducated, unemployed and desperate. MANY of these "activists" who promote GANG affiliation, drug use, unwed procreation and support and gangster rap culture.
Fire em, Fine em and give US a break from their BS
