    I mean you'd be refering to yourself as you as part of your mind. So you're secondary you would be refering to the primary, perhaps orginal, you as you since its now as far as your mind is concerned another individual however since its a mental disorder in fact the two you's are actually the same person and mind conversing with itself in the second person so therefore you're two sides are refering to themselves in the greater sense in the second person.

    I get what you're saying, and I'm saying you're right.

    Now, if you really want to trip yourself out, ask yourself if that would also be the case for a split-brain patient.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    In related news, I was taking a class titled "Gas Turbine Engines," and the professor FORCED me to learn about the Me-262. That's a Nazi plane!
    I don't believe in that!

    I can totally see that.
    During WWII we were at war with Germany and we're at war with Spain now. So that part is a solid analogy.
    Germany was extra offensive because of Hitler and the Nazis. Hitler and the Nazis now control Mexico. So that part is also a solid analogy.
    During WWII they went to baseball games to learn German. So the comparison of a baseball game to a middle school Spanish class is also spot on.

    Excellent points Solace. :thumbsup:

    You have managed to display all the merits of our position in just one sentence.
    I may be wrong.

    We teach foreign language the wrong way in this country, teaching it in high school, is really dumb.It should be taught in elementary school, but anyways this is actually a good way to teach them the language, they already know it by heart, so the only variable is the new language.

    Oh, and conservatives that are pissed by this, this is your version of political correctness just so you know

A country's national anthem and Pledge of Allegiance should only be sung in its native language.
    I only was able to get 29 pieces of silver for my maternal grandmother today when I sold her down the mighty Mississip. And when I got home I found that I that the man in the coon skin cap by the pig pen wanted 11 pieces but I only had ten. So you can imagine the delight my heart took when I read about the extra-insidious middle school Spanish teacher's clever plot to unravel our republic by asking students to translate a piece of text that each of the students was intimately familiar with--the pledge of allegiance.
    'Cause there is nothing, and I mean not a thing, that will bring America to her knees faster than that. I expect that the National Guard will be called out by midnight. But they'll be powerless. No one can stop the teacher's insidious plan now that it has been unleashed. Tomorrow we will wake in a godless fundamentalist Islamo-Communist-Nazi socialist anarchy that used to be America.
    All because of that one assignment in that one middle school Spanish class.

    Step One: Assign the translation of the Pledge of Allegiance to students in a foreign language class
    Step Two: ???
    Step Three: The downfall of the world's sole super power.
    I may be wrong.

    Step two is the part about grandmothers, they are the cornerstone of our national security.

    The only problem with that is that some kids have a hard time mastering the English language for various reasons even if their parents speak English. Adding another language at that age completely confuses them and makes it even harder to learn to read, write and speak in English.

    I don't have a problem with making it an option for a Spanish class in elementary school. I don't think the whole day should be taught in Spanish, it should just be a one class a day thing if the parents agree to it.

    If this was Social Studies, I'd be annoyed.

    But if I understand rightly, this is IN SPANISH CLASS. I took spanish in high school. As I recall, we were required to speak Spanish in class and learn spanish phrases, how shocking. I don't remember whether we learned to do the Pledge in spanish or not, it's been a while, but I wouldn't be surprised.

    Maybe this is not in good taste, but it isn't exactly a Constitutional crisis.

    Of course it should be only one class in the day. It is just so much easier for people to learn another language while you are young, instead of in high school, when your brain isn't as capable of learning another language.
