A prime example of corruption and a person getting away with it.

This amount to judicial misconduct and warrants corrective action being taken by the governing body for judges. The only requirement should be to arise when the judge enters the court room. I remember as a child we did the pledge of allegiance in school in MS which failed to affords equal protection of the law for all citizen. The attorney should rec an apology from the judge for his arrogance and ignorance.

America will fall. You can count on it. When "the people" chose to elect a pagan leader they willfully turned their back on JESUS CHRIST the LORD! Get ready.. Repent believe and be baptized and thou shalt be saved. JESUS IS LORD

America will decline not because of religion but because of corrupt beliefs. Secular humanism is the government guide but then they are sinners and the more a person takes for himself the less the rest believe.

No, actually, it doesn't "repisents" them at all. In fact, the "pledge of Allegiance" represents socialism. And, since we're talking about freedom, that means the freedom to not be forced to utter useless nonsense by others. In fact, if you followed this case at all, then you'd know that the judge in this story was censured and fined, there will be no more making people utter useless nonsense in that judge's courtroom.

LOL, speaking of utter nonsense, the bible doesn't mention the US, the US flag, nor does it even mention the bald eagle. But, the bible also allows men to have more than one wife, and that the age of sexual consent is just after puberty, which would be about 12-13 years old, right?

Good job running that down Richard. The judge folded like a reed in a hurricane. THE MISSISSIPPI COMMISSION ON
JUDICIAL PERFORMANCE v. TALMADGE LITTLEJOHN found that "Judge Littlejohn has admitted all charges of misconduct and joins the Commissionís recommendations."

They'll take our liberty if we LET them. Note the "joins the Commission's recommendations" part. To me, in my opinion, it shows how easily they fold when presented with real personal consequences. Of course, they have no problem levying those on you and I. So what does that tell you?

Well now it makes sense. So the same judge was involved with the racist organization that decades ago required loyalty oaths to Mississippi's segregationist regime. It's a small leap from that involvement in the Sovereignty Commission to, in your waning years, requiring oaths of allegiance in your courtroom. If anything, the judge has gotten more reasonable in his elder years.

"And if the f'n Muslim would guit trying to kill us. We wouldn't have to be searched by the tsa.'
==========
It has nothing to do with a Muslim world it has to do with responsibility and knowing the people around you. If you do not want to risk flying with strangers then do not fly, but do not force searches of free individuals that have liberty. Does your neighbor want to search your home because they are worried about you having a bomb to blow them up?
