Should the pledge of allegiance be school sponsored?
QUICK! SEND EM TO SOMALIA!!! THAT'LL TEACH EM!!!
Of course. We said it every single morning when I was in elementary school, and it hasn't hurt me a bit.
That you know of....
It made me a mindless robot and a nationalist. Better label it as 'brainwashing' just to be safe.
macabrenotsosmart - the brainwashing was whatever caused you to think it's a bad thing to be an American nationalist. It's not. Despite all the "evils" you might accuse us of (and I've heard them all), America is still the greatest nation on Earth.
I was being sarcastic, however nationalism is a little dangerous. There's no evidence to support the statement that we're #1. Of course this doesn't mean we're #195 either.
Sorry, macabrefellowgenius. I 'd never "met" you before and didn't catch the sarcasm. I shouldn't have judged you on one post. :o)
