Scalia wrote back saying, if any single issue was decided by the civil war, that was, states cannot secede. However, nothing has been said or decided about us kicking certain parts of the nation out of the Union and after the most recent outrage in liberal land, I am thinking we should give part of the country its walking papers.
In Brookline, Massachusetts, a school principle decided that starting in January, once a week, the school would recite the pledge of allegiance. So far so good. Unfortunately, this is liberal land. Instead of simply doing it, the principle not only sent a notice home to the parents of the children, but sent a permission slip as well.
In liberal land, a child now needs a permission slip to recite the pledge of allegiance.
The principle claims it is not a permission slip, though it clearly has two boxes. One says the child will participate and one says the child will not. In addition, since it is liberal land, the principle felt obligated to define God as mentioned in the pledge.
Liberal parents in liberal land are understandably outraged. One said, a pledge is a promise and she could not “force” her child to make a promise. The ACLU said it had “concerns” about the pledge. Of course it has concerns. The ACLU objects to any show of patriotism.
Massachusetts does have a state statute that requires schoolteachers to lead class every morning with the pledge of allegiance. I am sure everyone will be shocked to learn that statute is not enforced.
If the people of Massachusetts cannot find it in their hearts to pledge allegiance to the flag of this country, perhaps it is time for this country to tell Massachusetts good-bye. After all, would anyone really argue that we are not better off without Barney Frank?
This is what happens after fifty years of the liberal war on patriotism and American citizenship. Now, you have to have permission to pledge allegiance to the flag.
I know we will not kick Massachusetts out of the nation. But for the liberals who are so offended by the pledge, they will not say it; I have a suggestion.
Get the hell out.
In this world, right now there are approximately 195 countries. I am sure you can find one that is not so offensive to you that you can pledge your allegiance to. In the meanwhile, the real Americans, the Americans who love this country and who love freedom and liberty, will continue to pledge allegiance to the flag.
And for you America haters who will not say the pledge, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

I live in this stinking State. We're having a constant Kook contest with California. Politicians from just these two State alone have done the most damage to our republic. The place is full of socialists. Good news though at least we get to loose a rep.!!!
Yup. The Commies in my State have managed to make the producers FLEE!!! No Federal bailout for California or my stinking progressive s*** headed state! Let them turn to Detroit.
I live in Mass. Could everyone flood my state house with angry calls and tell them to stop screwing up the WHOLE country?
My State and Clifornia. If you get the "I don't represent you I'm sorry. Can't talk."line. Tell them. "No you just get bailed out every year from ME. Let Mass and California go and we could save our Republic!" I live here. This place is a cult. Liberals DON'T respect your freedom. They are all about TOTAL CONTROL. We put Frank back in. This State deserves to fall in the sea after that one. California too. BROWN? What the hell is the matter with those people.
The dependence we as a nation have put on our pathetic education system is testament to how far our independence has decayed. We have become a nation of followers instead of leaders. For too long we have accepted the incompetence in our government as status quo rather than demanding it be changed.
As we consumed ourselves in the American Dream we forgot the most important thing about that dream, our children and the future we leave them. The problem we now face is a growing illiterate parental population that is less than capable of helping the children.
My state lost a Rep. WARNING: Libs will slip into your state like a killer at night and try to CHANGE it into the State they ran away from. They are insane.
I can no longer look at them as brethren countrymen .
