It'll be good practice for the future, when they have to say other irrelevant bullshit they don't mean for no good reason.

You just summed up the state's biggest newspaper in one perfectly concise sentence.

I was thinking job interviews, but yes.

We said the Pledge of Allegiance every day in my school. Only towards the end of my senior year did it become a problem. Kids started rising up . . . and getting detention and then suspension. Apparently if you don't say it, you're an un-American commie-pinko faggot bastard or something. And if you DO say it, then you're a Patriotic hero of my little ponies and stars spring from your twat dispensing truth, justice, and seasonally appropriate confetti.

I didn't really care one way or the other. It was just another bullshit part of school and one of the least irritating ones at that.

I have my Junior High Principal to thank for cementing my will like no one else ever could.

By 8th grade I had decided I would sit for the pledge.

By 9th I grew the balls to do it. There were a few of us. I don't know I could have done it on my own. There was a gulf war and stuff--it made it easier.

My Principal was not pleased. He called us out in the middle of a school assembly. Accused us of being disrespectful. Trying to show off. Something along those lines. It fucking sucked.

I learned then and there that I had a choice between sucking it up and being a fucking hypocrite, or sucking it up and being derided and shamed. He didn't cement my will to never be a hypocrite. He cemented my will to suck it up.

Fuck anybody who forces that choice on kids.

Oh, and then it DID pass. Really, fuckers? Fuck.

I am happy to note that my old family friend and State rep for my district was the guy who spoke out most harshly against it.

That's great. :lol:

In high school we said the pledge every day as well as a moment of silence for praying. I never said the pledge nor cared about it. It was just a couple of minutes for my friends and I to shoot the shit during class. It always seemed very child indoctrination-esque/culty to me. Looking back I wonder how many of my classmates get hard-ons seeing a flag lapel pin on a politician now because of saying the pledge every day though. I mean it has to work on at least some kids, right?

Personally, I see nothing wrong with legally forcing minors to swear fealty to a society that's systematically fucking them over.

We had the pledge every day. I stopped saying it around 2nd or 3rd grade because I thought it was stupid.
Never did have a teacher complain about it though.

Same here.  But in 6th grade homeroom, I had a teacher who said that anyone who didn't feel like saying it could remain seated if they chose.  I ran into him when I was in high school, and that came up.  He said that the pledge in and of itself was un-American and contrary to everything the founders had said.  It's basically a holdover from the 50s, when the same sort of MAKE EVERYONE LISTEN TO US mentality that we have today was running wild in the nation.

You know, when they threw people in jail for unpopular political ideologies, etc.

Lew is fucking awesome. He's an old family friend, as well as being my district's rep.

AND

LOVE

          the notion that being asked to recite the pledge is like being bullied.

Of course.  There's absolutely nothing wrong with coercing children to pledge allegiance to a nation that is fucking them over from birth.

It's just fine.
