    The gradual fall of American Patriotism continues

    This is horribly disappointing.


    School Scraps Standing During Pledge Requirement

    DILWORTH, Minn. (AP) ― The Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton School Board has scrapped a rule that students stand during the Pledge of Allegiance.

    On a 5-2 vote, the board voted to amend the handbook to allow students to sit out the Pledge.

    The American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota had said it would consider a lawsuit if the rule stood.

    School board members had deadlocked on the issue in May. But they were reluctant to drag the western Minnesota district into a costly legal fight.

    Last month, Junior High Principal Colleen Houglum suspended three students for sitting during the Pledge and a fourth who remained seated in protest the next day.

    The handbook rule had required students to stand even if they choose not to recite the Pledge.

    Things are definately getting out of control, maybe someone ought to sue ACLU for being anti-American. What ever happened to pride in ones country? If your not proud to be an American, well the borders work both ways, don't let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya!

    I had traffic court the other night, and I was pleasantly surprised when the judge started court by ordered everyone to stand for the pledge of allegiance. That was a first for me. The judges always swear everyone in, but I haven't done the pledge of allegiance at court before.

    tradition and pride are being kicked to the curb
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    I wish we could sue ACLU for being "anti-America". Isn't that their objective though?

    Why is America selling herself out to the few who are attempting to make change to support their own agenda.
    Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death.
