Its the law, attorneys must obey the law. And the Judge runs his/her courtroom the way he/she sees fit to a point. The Pledge of allegiance is the most important thing we must have as it is the last chance we get before outlawing that.
Sounds like this Judge does not know the law, The SCOTUS has found that a citizen can not be forced to Pledge Allegiance. When a Judge does not know the law it's time for him or her to step down.

This judge is a jackass! Hands down! He does NOT go by Mississippi law, it's whatever he "thinks" is "right." He needs to go ahead & start the RETIREMENT process! Old geezer relates some cases to his personal experiences rather than listening to both sides. It's his way or else! Total jerk! He has NO heart & doesn't really give a %#€& about FAMILY! He'll rip one apart just because he believes it's right.

Tomorrow is the day. 3 years of fighting, collecting Information, keeping records, 3 years of sleepless nights and crazy thoughts, 3 years of hurt and emotional pain, 3 years of doing everything I could to see and talk to my daughter, 3 years of doing everything in my power to make sure she was ok, 3 years with wife drinking her wine, going out, living without a worry and alienating me as much as she could, 3 years of her going from one awful bf to the next in front of our daughter, 3 years all balled up into one day, into one judge, one hour. Hopefully tomorrow my daughter and myself will be able to breathe again. Pray for us and the Hernando Judge. Maybe her attorney-MM will not win this one, maybe for once the judge will go by the law and the trial will benefit the minor child. Hopefully I will be back in my daughter's life and just not as a "visitor" and we can begin to heal from this awful experience. Melinda Meacham & Anne Jackson I hope you read this and wonder at night how many other children and families have you destroyed all for a dollar $$$ with this judge in your back pocket all the time. If you are thinking about using either, they will bleed you and the opposing counsel of every penny you have and then some. Hopefully tomorrow this same judge will turn over a new leaf for the good of children and families in Desoto County

This 100% standard practice. Calling out specific attorneys doesn't matter, they all do the same thing, in fact Police, attorneys, Judges, don't know any other way to do things. Lemmings, that write the same reports, file the same papers, and make a lucrative living doing so. In your case, they hijacked your kid/s knowing your good character would pay anything. Most times they give initial custody to the sorry parent knowing they can milk the "good" parent of all property, later resulting in a, none the wiser "happy ending".
It's impossible at this point to know who is who, or do statistics on insurance, crime, or anything else, because every bit of paperwork is riddled with standardized lies. There isn't a thread of truth or justice, in any court, in any town.

most people would settle to the way it is.
and that is the problem right there.
not enough people interested in making and forging real change.
oh they may talk about in their locker room,
or their office desk,
but are they out there politicking and policing the state,
no afraid they are not doing that, in fact they are the last in the cue.

You do realize that was added in the 1954 don't you? The two words "under God"

Even the pledge is relatively recent, written by a Christian Socialist and Baptist minister, Francis Bellamy in 1892.

I am curious, am I wrong, I thought that some where in the PledGe of Allegiance that there is a phrase for Liberty and Justice for All. I do agree with one comment which was IF you don't like it you can leave for another country where you do not have to Pledge your allegiance, but you will not find one in communist countries you will not have the right to refuse some thing ( as you found your self uncomfortable to make your pledge to our United States) or anything if you do refuse you and you could find your self dead because in most communist countries refusal you show your allegiance to them makes you their enemy and they do know how to stop you from refusing the next time because there will be NO NEXT TIME. Islamic countries basically the same thing, places like South America the cartels or which ever rebel force group is in control , the same thing. I think it a bad call for the Judge but I do not fault him, as for the attorney IT was definitely a bad call he made. The general rule is in his court room the judge is the Boss if something is wrong you can always appeal. He should have said the Pledge and later gone to the states attorney general.pay no attention this is just the rambling of an old man

It bad call is believing that the U.S. is better than other places since the U.S. controls world money and funds all the bad calls.
Fact is if you have to compromise your rights to keep the peace you have no rights.

Doesn't matter, the judge was wrong and was sanctioned for it. The reality is, the judge is a servant of the people, people have inalienable rights and one of those rights is to not have to be forced to utter statements by demand of the servant.

No, they are just as corrupt as the U.S. they are failing just like the U.S. When people have no responsibilities they do not stand up to corruption.

It is a good thing we have harmless ways of venting anger like this blog or lunatics like the above might go out and shoot someone. Obviously there are not enough nut houses.
