From a legal stand point, it has been optional since 1943, Its only in states where Republicans are trying to force schools to recite it daily that they need to hand out forms like this to avoid lawsuits ..
And these rubes kvetch about liberal of commie INDOCTRINATION.
What do they think the pledge is?
It's every citizens right to choose to participate or not,
My country right or wrong is no reason to pledge.

Okay, can someone tell me one policy proposal Trump hasn’t backtracked on? Does anyone have a firm understanding what Trump would do in the office from a policy standpoint?
Trump and Churchill are only
similar in body build at this point

The world premiere was on November 11, 2014, at the American Film Institute Festival, followed by a limited theatrical release in the United States on December 25, 2014 and a wide release on January 16, 2015. The film became a major success, with a worldwide gross of over $547 million, making it the highest-grossing film of 2014 in the United States ($350 million), the highest-grossing war film of all time unadjusted for inflation, and Eastwood’s highest-grossing film to date.

Yes, it was an awesome movie and did really well. My point was on that opening weekend the local theater only had it on one of sixteen screens. Couldn't get in, all the seats were sold. The following weekend when my family could see it, they had in on five of their sixteen screens.
Here is hoping that this movie will do well enough to get into more theaters and on more screens. The only other reasonably close theater that is showing it is a "Gun Free Zone", and well, that's just right out.
Looking forward to taking the family out to see it, where ever we see it, whenever we can see it.

Rock. When you vote, you vote for someone. Not against someone. You’re saying, this person represents me and will be my voice. Neither Trump, nor Clinton fit that bill for me. This secondary consequences b.s. detracts from what voting really is about.

I bet maybe 1% of the people who blasted her actually abide by every single flag code. Sactimonious jerks.
If I know only one it is the flag is NEVER to touch the ground.
I'd be willing to bet it's a LOT more than 1%.

Reading between the lines, it appears the cops are trying to sat that a guy shot off a homemade firework, it didn’t explode when launched. Then whoever shot it didn’t pick up or dispose of the device, either not being able to find it or believing it was a dud. Then some time later a person steps on it and the pressure causes the explosion.
I don’t believe this is what you would call an IED or a typical terrorist bomb. They usually would have shrapnel or something to shoot out upon explosion to cause mass casualty.

Did you see the story about the U.S. Airstrikes, authorized by Obama, that took out an ISIS convoy and killed 250 ISIS fighters? If Obama is a Muslim sympathizer he’s really bad at it.

So people supporting a candidate who says that we should discriminate based on religion and countries of origin say they should be discriminated against based on whom they support.
@MoDem.........you are about as clueless as your name.
So supporting a candidate who put all Americans at risk for careless handling of emails, letting 4 men die then lied about it, slaughtered innocent babies and sold their body parts, and bullying Billy's rape victims should be served by a Republican?
Mo…if you’re saying that Trump is rightly pointing out that islam is the focus of terrorism, I agree. If illegal mexicans are filling our prisons, and causing us harm I have to agree with him. I guess it’s okay for liberals to deny that Chistianity had more to do with the founding of this country than muslims ever did and that there is a lot of our history which emanates from those beginnings and should be taught, I agree with him.
Liberals willfully keep their heads in dark stinky places….except when their heads are rotating spewing green goo.
Prudent discrimination is not bad it’s necessary in times of threat. Douche bag Carter did it to the iranians. So stop miss characterizing it. These young girls unlike bernie or hillary supporters will likely not sue scoring all kinds of points for America.
Mo, You're an idiot. There is absolutely nothing wrong with discriminating against those that want to do you harm. In intellectual America, we call that self preservation. But I guess in your liberal world of feelings and flying unicorns you find that type of discrimination difficult to swallow. I, and most Americans, find it very easy to discriminate against known, violent groups that serve no purpose on this planet but to create death and mayhem. I'm glad our forefathers discriminated against Brits, Nazi, Japanese and the like. They knew they're enemies and weren't afraid to "take care of business".
Federal laws to preserve and protect a country's survival have little in common regarding "discrimination" with private enterprise laissez-faire principles, but go ahead and make an inaccurate snarkism. Most of us will see through it.
Yeah ones a safety concern dickwad it's not a personal attack on political views
Reading and listening comprehension were elementary school subjects - maybe common core doesn't look at them any longer. Trump never said to discriminate against anyone based on their religion or country of origin. He did say that we need to halt (rather than speed up) immigration from that part of the world "until we know what we're doing" and can vet them. That was in response to many of our leaders including FBI, DHS, CIA - all admitting that we have no way to vet them from many of the countries over there.
As far as illegal immigration, how is saying that everyone needs to come in here legally discrimination? A lot of people waited their turn, went through the painstaking process, and came into this country legally. They learned the language, honored our flag, said our Pledge of Allegiance, and became Americans. THAT is what we want - not people who start their relationship with the U.S. by blatantly braking the law and then arrogantly admit that they've done it and that they don't respect our laws. Is that who we want here? No. And lots of legal immigrants don't like illegal immigration either!
So get your facts straight as your comment is completely a lie.
"MoDem" (Clever. And, honest. Apt name for a Democrat operative.) "Discrimination" is necessary, it is how the mind operates. If the USA doesn't discriminate about who or what visits or resides or becomes a citizen, the USA will not exist. What you will have is open terrain with people roaming over it weeping, wailing, gnashing their teeth ruled by some sort of tyranny. Who decides is what is being contested. I don't want Hillary, ZeroKing, or you to decide. I don't like the way you think. But, if you enter my restaurant, I will serve you and do it with a smile. You just don't get the point, MoDem, as a Democrat, and neither do the followers of Sharia Law. What is funny and frightening is that you side with them and seek to destroy Trump and Americans, like me, who side with him.
Under current law in matters of public accommodation, it is illegal to deny service to anyone seeking to buy what you are selling. Your circular logic fails because it ignores the law and replaces it with your own spurious morality.
I would be very interested to see or hear where he said that.

First two trials were guilty verdicts that were overturned on appeal. Third was a mistrial. Fourth was the only one that was a not-guilty verdict. Hardly prosecutorial misconduct.

This is an easy move for Trump. 1. If it is terrorism, he’s right. 2. If it wasn’t terrorism, he can talk about how there’s a liberal conspiracy to cover up the truth and a larger portion of the country is so distrustful they’ll believe it.
The public trust is so low and the bad information on facebook and other b.s. blogs is so prevalent that you can always claim it’s terrorism and you’ll never be wrong.
That occurred to me too....but isn't it interesting that Trump can never really stick with what he said...if he doesn't correct himself (or cover for himself), then he sends his campaign staffers out to clear things up. Very convenient.
Smart strategy on Trump’s part. Chris Matthews confirmed the that media is Liberal-biased. He said the big media is in NY and they think everything thinks like the NY media.

Did Trump tweet out his prayers to the families affected, or just the tween in this article?
 May 19, 2016 at 9:37am
Sarge, I think the point is that Trump is implying that if he were in charge he would have stopped it. How, do you think he would do that? Especially given that this attack (unconfirmed) would have been organized on foreign soil and carried out on a foreign plane over foreign lands. How exactly is a U.S. President supposed to stop that?
 May 10, 2016 at 9:13am
How would they write the law? Statute _____: “No muslim shall be allowed to enter the United States, unless Donald Trump says it’s okay. Heil Donald!”
My apologies guy, I didn't mean stealing like that. More so as they formed an alliance trying to keep Trump from winning enough delegates by encouraging people to vote for Kasich or Cruz, even though it was obviously they themselves wouldn't be able to secure enough delegates for the nomination. Stealing wasn't the term I should have used.
