Fuck the pledge.  If we want our kids to understand what they were supposed to have, have the little bastards recite the preamble.

But the Knights couldn't get 'Under God' added to that.

We could use the bit about nature and her god.  I think that's from the declaration.

The declaration is an historical document only, and carries no weight of law.

Wait, is this a post-American generation whatever type observation, or are you for real? :?

For real.  The declaration of independence is not, nor has it ever been, any form of law.

It was basically just a list of bitches and a kthxbai.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

Summary of Declaration of Independence:

Quote
It gets on our last collective nerve that the King of England is such a cockwaffle. So much so, in fact, that we are prepared to sever all of our political bonds with Great Britain. I mean, if anyone has a right to be such a towering pile of turds to Americans, it's us. Therefore, we hereby declare, "catch us if you can, you Limey cunts!"

The Pledge of allegiance is carries no weight of law either, but the declaration of independence at least carries more historical oomph.  Plus having our children declare independence every day, rather than pledging allegiance, would give things a very different feeling.
You're a special case, Babylon.  You are offensive even when you don't post.

Merely by being alive, you make everyone just a little more miserable

That's a great idea. We should come up with a pledge of autonomy.

I pledge allegiance to me, and the people and things I give a shit about.  The rest of you can fuck off and stay out of my life.  Kthxbai.
