    I don't think that the Pledge belongs in public schools and it seems odd to make Spanish a required subject.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    Well I think a foreign language should be required. Especially since most colleges now require 1 or 2 years of foreign language requirements to graduate.

A country's national anthem and Pledge of Allegiance should only be sung in its native language.
    So just for clarification to make sure I save my grandma and my soul. I speak Chinese, and can say Pledge in Chinese, is my grandmother already half way down the Yellow River and my soul already taken? Or am I still good because I haven't actually said it yet?

    Spanish class is for teaching students to speak Spanish. The students already know the Pledge in English. By heart. Teaching them to say it in Spanish makes just as much sense as teaching them to say in Spanish anything else they say in their daily lives.

    That said, to quote the mother, "I don't believe in that?"

    Really? Seriously?

    Bitch, this isn't an article of faith. Nobody's asking you to believe in it. If you want to disagree with it, that's fine.

    Tell you what, offer the school a deal -- they leave off with teaching the Pledge in Spanish, and you take a remedial course in English.



    TED,
    Really really really hates it when his countrymen make him look dumb by association.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    You know what I've always wanted to master? Talking in the second person.

    I'd practice here, because practice makes perfect, but now I'm afraid you'd take it as a come-on.

    If you have multiple personalities does that constitute talking in the second person? If the two of you chat inside your head?
