"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.


An allegiance which dedicates one's devotion to our country, our history, our start.


Stay in your locker room you reject NFL slut!


Kneel you NFL rapist, above the law bastards!

The football protests were minimal. One or two here and there until the media got a hold of it and blew it up into news. Still the protests were few and far between.
Then Trump tweeted and called them sobs, and the players responded
And the Trump supporters? Take a guess. Trump made it an even bigger issue and all his cult followers began to froth at the mouth and paw the ground. ‘’ Bark, bark bark, grrrrrrowl,grrrrrowl, yelp yelp,,,,woof woof, bark bark, meow, bark bark. Hey what’s that liberal snowflake doing here. Bark bark bark grrrrowl

Correct, interesting history too.

In it's current form by a Christian socialist:


Balch and Bellamy pledges The Pledge of Allegiance, as it exists in its current form, was composed in August 1892 by Francis Bellamy (1855–1931), who was a Baptist minister, a Christian socialist,[11][12] and the cousin of socialist utopian novelist Edward Bellamy (1850–1898). There did exist a previous version created by Rear Admiral George Balch, a veteran of the Civil War, who later become auditor of the New York Board of Education. Balch's pledge, which existed contemporaneously with the Bellamy version until the 1923 National Flag Conference, read:

Changed due to:


"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands; one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.". In 1954, during the McCarthy era and communism scare, Congress passed a bill, which was signed into law, to add the words "under God.".

"Under God"was added later. The pledge is to country and flag. Kneeling is to point out something has gone awry, not that you hate the flag or country.

Trump's dosgraceful remarks on Saturday....he makes diagraceful remarks every day... but this was a direct response to that.

A fantastic response showing that Trump is an absoute imbecile. Trump said something like the games have low ratings and attendance, LMAO. This is football....people will watch and go to the game no matter what happens during the National Anthem. Trump just walked right into a brick wall. The ONLY WALL he will ever have.

Either way this country has prospered to become the greatest nation as far as prosperity goes, I don't think I would risk taking it out though. Maybe take it out when the time comes that the nation is no longer prosperous.

Trump will lead the news media to discuss what ever he wants to talk about. Enough people voted for Trump to win the Presidency. The Sports Conglomerates will get boycotted by both sides anyway. They are in a lose/lose situation at the moment. I see people on here all the time talking about the big evil companies. I don't see why they would defend them now.

Best to just leave it in then, just to be safe.

I always enjoyed the pledge in school.

The problem with the "Under God" part is it implies atheists do not have the right to liberty and justice. What if the original pledge added "Under no God" would you be just as argumentative.

I would prefer the "Under God" part be removed and go back to the original. Not because I'm an atheist. But because I know atheists exist in this country and it would be nice to treat people equally.

I agree. And although I do not like what they are doing, they are doing it peacefully. But since I do not like it, I will not take part in it.




Trump's dosgraceful remarks on Saturday....he makes diagraceful remarks every day... but this was a direct response to that.


Dosgraceful to who? The left wing agenda? He is doing exactly what he was meant to do. He brought attention to the Presidency, and the ridiculousness with how those opposed to an honest election act. The left has responded to this Presidency with a sordidness never before seen.

Trump won the Presidency facing a 90/10 chance facing your way of thinking. I am going to have to go with the western saying, I wouldn't be so sure about that.

Prosperous?

What do you think the National debt is? Do you know what the Budget deficit is? Strange way to describe prosperity!

Do some research....

I would measure it by the fact that even the poorest citizens have the privilege of year round access to seasonal fruits and veggies. Or the most entertaining portable electronics the Chinese can produce. Or the fact that there are enough vehicles here that there is probably more access to automobiles, including the poor than many European societies.

Or how swiftly we can transition to the next consumer technology when many people in the world to this day still have yet to own a TV, or they have an old CRT. How pretty much nearly all Americans have regular access to safe clean and hot water, refrigeration, climate control etc.. etc..

Our financial state is a temporary matter, its what the citizens have access to that is a better gauge of prosperity. I love me some of that fine New Mexico produced entertainment though!

You may be right. The NFL may get hurt here. And so might other sports venues. Mr Trump has tossed down a gauntlet over a minor player making a minor gesture which the media blew in to a news worth story. Mr Trump found one more way to bring saliva to the minds of his followers. He is making war on the sport corporations around the country. Do what I say or you will die you evil unpatriotic corporations.

And just what IS Donald Trump. He is a corporation. He IS Big Business. And you know what that makes this, his war on the sports corporations?
It makes it corporate warfare.. That is what Trump has been after all along. He only wanted to be president so that he could shake up the corporate landscape in the US and have his brand there ready to pick the fruit as it falls from the trees.
