LEST WE FORGET: The Pledge of Allegiance - dissected and explained

The Pledge of Allegiance  - dissected and explained

As I was watching the video of the town hall meeting in  Burns, Oregon, I noticed the nonchalant manner in which the townspeople recited the Pledge of Allegiance.

For the first time I realized how we take the pledge and all it stands for for granted - no emotion is exhibited - no demonstration by anyone of the importance of the words they are reciting, both for what it the pledge is really saying and for what it means personally to the person reciting it

Below is Red Skeleton's teaching on the Pledge
Please watch
Please pay attention and 
Please make your personal decision on what it really means to you
Perhaps then how we recite this Pledge will clearly demonstrate what we REALLY feel about its words and its meaning to each one of us personally

The Pledge of Allegiance

Pledge -- (A Bailment or delivery of Personal Property to a creditor as security for a debt or for the performance of an act.)

Allegiance -- ( the duty of loyalty and obedience - the obligation of fidelity and obedience )

to the flag (The official banner of a state or nation, often decorated with emblems or images that symbolize that state or nation.)

Are you excited about making such a pronouncement to an official banner of the state or nation and not the ACTUAL state or nation?

Or, are you still stuck in that program?
Pledge all you want to banners of things.

Anon 4:15 PM: There is ALWAYS someone with a negative response, one who has ALL the 'answers' to undo something posted, to divide the people, to conquer, to nullify something, and to kill and destroy. Don't say the darn pledge if you don't want to. Perhaps you are one of those hell bent on the destruction of the nation? AYE???
