A Pledge of Allegiance.

Linda & Tony Checchia

I pledge allegiance to - but retain the right to fight against - the flag, which I retain the right to burn, of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands - although I have no clue what it stands for one nation, unless it is deemed monopolistic and unconstitutional to be so, with no recognized, declared, implied or expressly stated "God," divisible by the courts, with liberty for all those who disagree and justice for all those who may happen to be "offended."

Michael Newdow, a Sacramento, CA, physician with a law degree, whose daughter attends public school in Elk Grove, CA, said he brought the lawsuit, which led to the ruling deeming the pledge unconstitutional, because he is an atheist and that it offended him, and he didn't want his daughter to have to hear it every day in school.

Welcome to the land of the free and the home of the brave.

What a country!

(Editor's Note: The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Wednesday June 26, 2002, that the term "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance if unconstitutional when used in public schools. The U. S. Justice Department has issued a statement that it plans to appeal the ruling.)
