    It doesn't have to be "unanimously" agreed upon to get ratified. It only needs to pass the House and Senate with a 2/3's vote, then con 3/4 of the states' legislatures to go along, and voila, beer's illegal.

    If an amendment banning beer can be passed in a nation crammed full of Irish and German immigrants, ANYTHING can pass, given the right conditions.

    I'd feel better if they used RPG's. They're more likely to kill each other and then we'd be done with them.

    Fact of the matter is that most, if not all, gun restriction legislation is based on nonsense. But that's not for this thread.

    I didn't run those numbers. You're talking about inflation adjusted figures, I suppose, though I imagine it would be hard to assign a monetary value to a Japanese city no one had much interest in anyway. Then again, what good is a federal building? Certainly bureaucrats are easily replaced.

    And that's the one story that you need to watch. Tell me where the affected people will find protection in the wake of Kelo vs New London.

    Re: Do you believe that the phrase "Under God" should be in the Pledge of Allegiance?

    But to drag the thread back to the Pledge of Allegiance...

    ...why is it a "liberal" thing to demand that the Congress obey the Constitution?

    People that heave that epithet out randomly should take the time to read my posts. All of them.

    While "liberal" is a slippery term with almost zero meaning, in general it implies a person that seeks to impose his will on society via the abuse of governmental power.

    What, exactly, do you call a law enacted by Congress dictating the correct phrasing of a "Pledge of Allegiance"?

    Perfect example.
    It's kind of funny if you think about it. People swing greatly on their opinion of the Supreme Court. If it decides the way they want it to, then their great. If not, it's them damn activist judges.

    I think there's a good chance the phase under God will still be in the pledge when SCOTUS is done. I don't think that's the right decision, but you know them damn activist judges.

    Re: Do you believe that the phrase "Under God" should be in the Pledge of Allegiance?

    It depends on the makeup of the Court at the time the case comes before it. If the Court is still heavy with activist judges, it is a distinct possibility that the phrase will be removed. If the Court is heavier with originalist or strict constructionist judges at the time the case comes before it, I believe the phrase will be left in the Pledge. The reason I believe it will is that none of you anti-under-God-in-the-Pledge people have come up with any rationale for why this phrase is unconstitutional other than you don't like it and/or you think the constitution prohibits religious expression in the public sector period and/or you want it to be unconstitutional. I think the justices will rule that it is constitutional and leave its use to the states to decide.

    You just confirmed what Pacridge just said.

    By the way, I demand that MY diety's name be mentioned in our pledge.
    We are not "under God" thats ridiculous, there is no "God".
    We are under Cosmodaeo. the supreme creator of the universe.

    I will support your petition if you can show how Cosmodaeo is a historical symbol of the Declaration of Independence and the source of inalienable rights guaranteed by the Constitution.

    The inalienable rights has nothing to do with god.
    The Declaration of Independance has nothing to do with the Pledge of Allegiance.

    tell me how this has anything to do with it
