Regardless, I still think Congress, the SCOTUS, and the POTUS should all have to start their morning by reciting a pledge to the People.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

I'm fine with the under god portion of the pledge. ****, I think it's even more ironic to keep it in there becuase that kind of makes it blasphemy when someone recites a prayer to their nation. See: False Idol
But I do have a question for the big "under God" supporters:
Would you be OK with it being altered to "Under Allah" since this would be identical to saying "under God" as they are the same being?

When I served in Iraq, I had no problems greeting the locals with "salaam aleikum". That doesn't offend me. That's their culture and I'm OK with it. It's a traditional greeting and I followed the local tradition. In fact, I know of no one that I served with that had a problem saying it to the locals. We were on their turf. Then again, we aren't the types to be oversensitive about something so trivial.
