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.

A lawyer is an officer of the court and should demonstrate fidelity to the court, not to the flag. Even though the judge may have had his reasons I think this was wrong headed.

The judge does not make the rules for the citizens. In a democratic republic the legislators make the laws.

The judge is a public servant.

If you don't like America, leave. If you don't like what America stands for, leave. If you don't like the bill of rights, leave. No one is keeping you in a place that you don't love. You are free to leave whenever you choose.

"You are free to leave whenever you choose. "
==========
You are free to step n the flag and free to not pledge to it freedom and liberty is the right to bad mouth the country and even have a revolution if the Government imposes tyranny. You have a right to have a guns to defend yourself from the government.

Those who died were obedient slaves to dictators. We do nor have leaders we tell the government what they can do. Your education has made you dependent on government rather than independent.

If you pay taxes you are dependent on the government to protect you. Working hard is not the same thing as working smart. The government used you as has your religion control you through fear and beliefs. The real world is not one of imaginary fears. Every key stroke is monitored by the nanny government you believe is honest.

It takes a vigilant public to keep control of government not the other way around.

I do not let emotions rule my life. God is a religious invention. If you believe in a superior being you have been used by fearing someone more powerful than yourself. You have the power to change government and it starts with talking to your neighbor. It does not happen by pledging to leaders.

Yeah.....and I'll be willing to bet that you'll be the first to complain when there are no jobs, decent economic development, school improvements, etc. in a few years. Tishomingo County is going to be the only dry county in the state pretty soon. I guess people think being dry will keep everyone safe from the evils of alcohol when meth and other substances are running rampant in the county. You're lucky someone like Tubby has the ***** to try to do something about it!!!!

Guess its alright for the lawyer not to salute the flag. Our president doesn't!!!! Have you seen the pictures with everyone else having hands over hearts when the pledge was being made? Not O'Bama, he holds his hands over his crotch, guess that is why it is being referred to as a "crotch salute". Disgusting piece of work!!!
Sure and he is a Moslem and was born in Africa and faked his law degree etc. It is surprising how many Morons there are who believe such drivel. PS did you know that Obama is really a white man with a good tan?

The pledge of allegiance was enacted by a socialist 100 years after our country was founded, research it. The things you think have "always been" really hasn't.

I'm a business owner. I am only one of many backing Mr. Aldridge.
Tishomingo County is most certainly going wet. Time to move forward.
