"Never fear. Him is here" - Captain Chaos (Dom DeLuise), Cannonball Run
Mace Windu: Then our worst fears have been realized. We must move quickly if the Jedi Order is to survive.
I pledge allegiance to the mighty dollar and a one world government for which it stands. One world, under mammon, with liberty and justice for only the rich.

What is odd are people talking about what the pledge "means" because I think if anyone gave it enough thought they'd realize this pledge is so antithetical to the idea of liberty and free thought that it would be more suitable to ban it from public schools than require it there.
"For what is Evil but Good-tortured by its own hunger and thirst?"
- Khalil Gibran
Perhaps the pledge would be much more meaningful if it was said for the first time at graduation ceremony from high school. It would be far more profound, then, really.
You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.
I think it should be said in Church.

Why should it be under anything? They put that in much later.
