    Well, that's mature.

    The Constitution isn't about technology, it's about people. The First Amendment isn't changed by the fact that radio and TV replaced newspaper. The Second Amendment isn't altered by the existence of automatic firearms and grenade launchers.
    Um, are you serious? You think that people should have freedom to own any and every weapon they can get a hold of? Why stop with grenade launchers? Give everyone a nuke.

    Breyer's self-serving interpretation of the Constitution is the primary reason the country's in the position it's in, socially.
    That's a bold statement. Wanna back it up?

    I'm telling you right now, 7-2 against "under god," if the court even decides to grant cert, which it might not.

    If I'm wrong, I'll be here and you can gloat all you like.

    I'm speculating that if the defense attorneys for the pledge do their job even halfway competently, the SCOTUS vote will be 9-0 that the phrase 'under God' is not an establishment of religion and is not unconstitutional. Even if the most liberal justices stick to their anti-religion stances, the vote will certainly be no worse than 6-3 to keep 'under God' in the Pledge for as long as the people want it to be there.

    By the way, the Pledge is 'sanctioned' as a uniform patriotic statement at the national level, but it is not mandated from the national level. The various states decide how, where, and when the Pledge will be used in their state schools, etc. As I have said before, 49 of 50 of these same states acknowledge the historical God in the preambles of their constitutions and to date not one of these has been successfully challenged as being unconstitutional.

    So let me understand, are you saying that when this goes to the SCOTUS that they won't hear the decision or over rule it?

    I am saying if they hear it, and I am not sure they will, that they will strike down the 9th circuit court opinion as they usually do.......

    Well im glad our Supreme Court Justices don't think the way you do.
    Your basically insinuating that if they hear it they are going to strike down the opinion JUST CAUSE it came from the 9th Circuit.
    Typical Navy Pride reply to many things, blame it on the 9th Circuit Court, Liberals, Democrats, and Arabs.

    Vast majority in U.S. support 'under God'
    June 30, 2002 Posted: 8:51 AM EDT (1251 GMT)

    NEW YORK (CNN) -- Nearly nine in 10 Americans believe the phrase "under God" should remain in the Pledge of Allegiance, and most believe it is acceptable for the government to promote religious expression, as long as no specific religion is mentioned, according to a Newsweek poll.

    So, because a large majority of America support an unconstitutional pledge, changed to make us feel like we are "sticking it" to the "godless" Communists in the 1950s......because a majority support it than its okay for it to be unconstitutional?

    In a democratic government majority rules and we have yet to find out if it is unconstitutional............The SCOTUS will decide that when they hear the case..........
