Jail him.
The judge ? Perhaps some public service such as street cleaning would be more appropriate. People in leadership roles in Tupelo are understanding that they need to be humble.

Todd Ray Keilholz (DOB 07/21/1963) is a habitual-criminal/sociopath who may be living in Ocean Springs MS.
Mr. Keilholz is a known sociopath, and is a 3-time Missouri felon on, apparently unsupervised, probation. Mr. Keilholz is a menace to society. An officer of a Missouri court has described Mr. Keilholz as a fearless and relentless habitual-criminal, and sociopath, who has expertise in identity theft. Mr. Keilholz has set up accounts with Internet sex and dating sites that uses to undertake illegal activities. Mr. Keilholz is a skillful confidence-man especially proficient, oddly enough, when his intended victim is a professional woman. Mr. Keilholz’s known legal problems, cataloged by Missouri Case Net, are now into the seventh page. Mr. Keilholz’s record both criminal and civil, including actions taken against him by the IRS, are simply too large to be listed here. Mr. Keilholz also has a large number of unpaid debts. Mr. Keilholz has committed crimes that law enforcement is not aware of. Avoid contact with Todd Ray Keilholz! Sincerely, The Victims of Todd Ray Keilholz

Please give me a Bible Chapter and verse where it says that Americans (or any other country's citizen) should not respect their flag. As I recall, Jesus said, "Give that which belongs to Caesar, to Caesar, and that which belongs to God, to God. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that one should disinherit their country's citizenship.

Show me in the Constitution where we have to respect it.

It use to mean something to respect the flag but that was before the elected ones in our government stop listening to the people and started listening to the other nations putting them before us. Now I beieve in helping but lets get real about it.

This is 100 percent true the courts are a farce. The Constitution is a hated work the gov. wants to piss on. I've spoke with the state and Feds, recently on serious issues, there is little hope. The DOJ seems like the only somewhat legit organization out if the 400 hundred. However we have lost our country, no I don't like to say it, but the terrorist won. We traded our freedom for safety. If this was son sort of conspiracy plan I'm not sure, but it's done. This the land we live in is no longer the land most of us grew up in. It's a fact.

I love when those morons say "if you don't like America move to Iran!". Don't they realize they're basically saying if Iranians and Iraqis and every MOOSLIMMMM they don't like are fine if they move next door to these guys because they don't like Iran, Iraq, and all that?

Of course if that happened they'd be the first to say DONT COME HERE! But, hey, I thought that if someone didn't like their country they're free to leave and go somewhere they do like... aww, darn, that double edged sword cuts both ways.

I am on the fence on this matter. On one hand, I agree with the idea that Americans should WANT to recite the pledge of allegiance with pride but when you look at America today, it is a sad, weak and pathetic country And nothing like it should be because liberals have destroyed it and what's worse, they are not done as of yet. Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, ect... They are the type of people who WANT civil unrest. They want in wars and want the American people dependant on social welfare programs. They want fuel at 9 dollars a gallon and import it from other countries instead of letting our country produce fuel and sustain ourselves. Obama is a dictator and a socialist and has no right to be in power as he is not a citizen of the United States. Everyone else is in denial and the people who believe in Obama
Are insane and inexcusably stupid!!! This man will continue to kill the USA little by little everyday!!!!

Bush took your freedom and liberty away so it has nothing to do with parties. We all are different and one size does not fit all. The country needs to be split into smaller parts with people divided so they can support the kind of community they want.

Actually, the pledge is the work of socialist progressives, there's nothing conservative about the socialist pledge.
