BUT even if it IS what she said, I am an American citizen who loves the land of the earth, ALL of the earth. I love the people of the earth, ALL of the earth. The flag (ALL flags, other than a Earth flag) represents divisiveness, as far as I can see. So I can see why someone would say it. Hell, I won't even say the 'Pledge of Allegiance". I will NOT pledge allegiance to a damn flag or a country. That leads to war. Hence, our history of killing one another.
It's EXACTLY what she said. She probably didn't realize that there are deaf, lip-reading Americans watching them, too. She definitely said it. Mocking Americans for this tradition just doesn't cut it in my book!
I agree I won't pledge to this flag anymore. BUT I'd "pledge allegiance to the Constitution of America". I'd pledge to America, but the US corporation won't get it ever again. American spirit, I believe in. And that doesn't lead to war. We all know the REAL reasons why wars are being fought.....manipulation.
But what gets to me is if these 2 fine so called PUBLIC SERVANTS don't like it, they should step down. Get out of the country. Take their forked tongues with them...Stop spending our money on themselves. This is what they agreed to represent. Or was that all just lies, too?
Even if this planet became a one world planet, there would still be pride in what each country is. There's no crime in that. This planet is what it is, multicultural. Nothing could change the fact that each person has a cultural history.
Who says we can't be united under one planet, but still have our cultural differences?
