Full story: Santa Cruz Sentinel

A Mississippi judge jailed a lawyer for several hours for refusing to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, ordering the attorney to "purge himself" of contempt by standing and repeating the oath like the rest of the courtroom.

You can not be serious. No honor in a country where symbolism more important than the people. You see with clouded eyes and know little truth.
You are reading your own meaning into my post and rather inaccurately at that. Maybe....just maybe you've clouded "your" eyes with one too many smokes on your pipe! Now "Tonto",...take a run'n jump for Scout and hope that he doesn't move! HA ha ha ha

You Post:

It seems to me, tho I've not read them all, that there are a few good posts here, pro and con. But if we don't salute or pledge allegiance to our flag, then that just serves to further break down faith in America. Our kids see this and sooner or later there will be no honor in our country but this is exactly what the opposing force is trying to do. Besides, there are a lot of dead soldiers who are asking,......"why!" This is a beautiful country, let's keep it that way ..(despite Obama.)

1. You say that there are good post against forcing people to pledge. Then why be for forcing people to do it? That is the essence of what the judge is doing.

2. How can people being coerced to pledge cause others to have faith?

3. Most soldiers I know are for people excising their rights. Even ones they do not agree with. You see that is what this country stands for that sets it apart and above the rest. Not sure why the soldiers would have a change of heart after they die. Never talked to a dead soldier.

4. Obama is not the worse one in government. To suppose our woes are attributed to him to any greater degree then any others is silly.

5. I ride a Toyota. Ha! Ha!

There is evidence as far back as 40,000 years. Humans killing woolly mammoths with spears.
The earth was not populated by nations or loyal beings. Rather it was separate people trying to survive. There is even evidence of Neanderthal and human mix.

That is a judge you can call stupid. I bet you that less than 10 percent can say the pledge.

School children are indoctrinated everyday forced to say the pledge. They might know the words but are clueless why they are subjected to the forced training.

Read Jimmy Carter's book " Palestine Peace Not Apartheid"

It is religion that makes the world a dangerous place.

Good attorney! I do not recite the pledge either, nor do I salute the flag. Why bother, given that the country is overrun by illegal immigrants, that public employee unions bribe our politicians, that activist judges overturn the vote of the people, and that racial and gender quotas are used instead of merit?
The only thing this country MIGHT do for me is pay back what I put into Social Security. Then again, maybe it won't.
after reading your reply, it think it's safe to say you may or may not be an attorney, but you are definitely a racist idiot!

You pulled the race card! That post wasn't racist, there's a difference between illegal immigrants and immigrants. This Country was built by immagrants, what that guy posted was fact, what did you read into it was racist? Don't pull the race card just because someone's facts have merit.

You move! The lawyer is the one playing by the rules. You people that have no respect for the constitution are always asking the real patriots to leave. Bunch of dip sticks get your own anti American azz out!.

The progressive socialist pledge of allegiance has nothing to do with worshipping the continental soldiers who fought the British for US independence.

Unfortunately that is how the political system is now working. We could as consumers stop buying and paying sales tax that would bring them down.
