    Its funny that those who are usually the most upset about eliminating "under god" are the same ones that care the least that the phrase "with liberty and justice for all" doesn't apply to everyone in this country.
    <font size=5><b>Its been several weeks since the Vegas shooting.  Its it still "Too Early" or can we start having the conversation about finally doing something about these mass shootings???​</b></font>

    It's sad that mistakes made during the McCarthy Era still hold sway with some people. Who gives a **** if they forgot "under God"? The pledge of allegiance should be all encompassing and not include religion to begin with. It's a pledge to the country, not to religion.

    your critical thinking skills need work. It was the NBC viewers that called NBC to complain about what they viewed on NBC.

    NBC is one of Hulu's main backers.

    The words "under God" are there now and have been for over 50 years. To say "Well, they weren't there originally!!" as a reason for omitting them now is just kind of juvenile.
