COMPROMISE ON PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE  IN OREGON

NY Times

First of all, I thought this was America? Isn’t the Pledge of Allegiance part of our traditions in this country? I mean, who are we now? Do we want to stand for anything these days? Apparently not in Oregon.

An Oregon town’s City Council voted down a proposal to say the Pledge of Allegiance before every council meeting, but later passed a compromise that seemed to make no one happy.

 

The approved measure allows the pledge to be recited at just four Eugene City Council meetings a year, those closest to the Fourth of July, Veterans Day, Memorial Day and Flag Day.

I mean, if you can’t pay respect for the ones who fought for this great country and appreciate our freedom, then maybe you need to move and get out of our country! Day by day, we let tolerance take over our lives! The more we tolerate things like this, the further our country slips away from us.
