She Will Not Pledge Her Allegiance

Dear Usual:

The revolt begins. One person at a time realizing. BTW the “pledge” was invented by a guy who sold flags to schools and was a Nazi.

And, when you have time, think about what the “pledge” means.

Or, maybe the roles: “A citizen pledges alegience in exchange for protection”. Don’t know about you but I don’t feel very protected. I feel more like the English Saxon who needed a Robin Hood.

Maybe even the Dead Old White Guys, who objected to the King’s infringements. Substitute the Federal Government and the mob of drones that control it. The crony capitalism. And the increasing losses of freedom.

The “Gun Control” debate isn’t about “GUNS”; it is about “CONTROL”. “Victim disarmament is the view that it is somehow better to see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose, than see her with a gun in her hand.” — T.D. Melrose And, we can’t allow the people any tool to resist the gooferment. “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn

You really don’t think that the Civil War aka the War of Nothern Aggression was about slavery. You don’t get your history lessons from the movie LINCOLN — who was the absolute worst two-face President by far.

Then think about the fiscal cliff debate and how they feel that they can take HALF of what you earn without even some much as a “thank you”? Evne the Bible says 10% max to God.

I wonder what will bring the Clovers (a modern name for the Sheeple) to the streets.

Are you ready for the 5% tax increase on 1/1. And the Obamacare tax of 3.8% that kicks in. And the 1.2% increase in FICA. And, that doctors will be paid 17% less.

And, the Prez in in Hawaii enjoying a much need vacation.


I haven’t stood for the Pledge in a long time.

If they want to sing, I sing along with GOD BLESS AMERICA, or Woddie Guthrie’s THIS LAND IS YOU LAND, or any anti-war song.

Time for a change and it starts with you. I’ve already changed.


Merry Christmas. Enjoy it while you still can. Maybe the Myans were right; they just had the date wrong.

Maybe I am that one guy! If so, I’m feeling proudly scared.
