as i awoke - groggily from my sleep this morn
i was thinking of what the bushites version of this pledge - would be - smile
so i did some research on the net
to get the exact words
but what i found was um, somewhat disturbing
i want you-all to go to this link
and about half way down there's a picture
of school children reciting the pledge
using the Bellamy Salute
which was a modification of the Roman Salute
(of which i could digress about the Roman state we have been creating
but i won't)
but that's not the worst of it
this little diddy was created to sell flags
and from the lips of it's author:
"Bellamy said that the purpose of the pledge was to teach obedience to the state as a virtue"
so i've decided
not to make a funny and change this pledge to what baby bush thinks
as it pretty much does exactly what baby bush and compadres want it to do...
hell, even Texas has it's own pledge to the flag
i want to change it for 'us'
I pledge my allegiance to the Peaceful citizens of Earth, and to The World for which it stands, one Planet under our Earth Goddess and Father Moon, indivisible, with most importantly ~ liberty and justice for all.
now who wants to design our flag?
and now for something completely different : creative visualization
