The Pledge of Allegiance

I never knew that the Pledge of Allegiance was such a young tradition. I had always figured that it was as old as the flag itself.


  1. yeah, it's a pretty dumb tradition, too. that's why it surprises me that so many super-conservatives are all about defending it in the courts. it was written as a mockery of the very people who embrace it. maybe that shouldn't surprise me ...

  2. I don't think it's a dumb tradition. And I don't think it mocks anyone. I think conservatives defend it because it mentions God (just one of its revisions).
