    Today was a sad day when I realized that I didn't remember the words to the pledge...For those of you like me, I thought we should be reminded. My daughter recites this everyday at school and I think the rest of us should remember. 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.

    I've said it nearly 2,000 times in my life in school, scouts, 4-H, FFA, sports events, etc.

    It really loses it's meaning when it is applied to everything.

    "I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the republic for which it stands, one nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

    1892 to 1923

    "I pledge allegiance to my Flag and to the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

    1923 to 1924

    "I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States and to the republic for which it stands: one Nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."

    1924 to 1954

    "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."

    1954 to Present

    "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."

    I simply leave out a few words.

    You would think that the Pledge of Allegiance would be one thing that would be fairly controversy free....but not on INGO, oh no....rather than being something we can basically agree on, we have to get on our hobbyhorses about that too. Honestly, it seems like some people just never turn off their "I'm so much smarter and more informed than you" switch.

    :blahblah:

    some people always have to complain about someone complaining about someone else complaint.. and never stop complaining about a complaint. I've never understood so much complaining.

    P.S. I think some of us younger people on here enjoy learning and seeing some of this stuff, as I was raised in da hood, and they teached me nothin'

    It is becoming increasingly common for some school systems to take out the "Under God" part lest someone be offended. I am thankful that I live in a community that does not buy into it.

    And when my kids were going to school in Bloomington, they said the school went one step further--by hardly ever reciting it at all.

    So you're suggesting we should stop attempting to correct misconceptions?

    If that's the case, then we should probably stop trying to tell people that an AR-15 isn't a machine gun and that a barrel shroud isn't a shoulder thing that goes up.
