    This is some of the scariest stuff I've seen in my lifetime. Not just this, but the drift towards socialism and the gradual chipping away at our constitutional rights in the name of "what's good for us". America needs to wake up and smell the facism. Fortunately, many are. I just hope we're not too late. :(

    Did you guys read the article? It's not a whole lot different then this http://disney.go.com/disneygroups/friendsforchange/#/disneygroups/friendsforchange/

    Those SOB's at disney want me to take a pledge to help the environment...screw them I don't pledge to anyone.

    It was a service video of people individually "pledging" to help each other, the U.S., the environment etc and one of them said they would be of service to the President of the united states... The Teacher even said they should have viewed it with a closer eye to other beliefs. It's not like she showed them a Porno.

    Keep in mind that "Service" was the whole them of the Republican National Convention http://portal.gopconvention2008.com/pressrelease/details.aspx?id=51

    (Anti-Republican rhetoric removed to prevent the kind of crap that always comes up in this type of post.)

    What planet are you people from? This was a videotape of OTHER people saying what THEY pledge. And one of them pledged to support the current president of the United States. [OMG!! Shameful concept!!]. No child was asked to make any pledge. It was just a freakin' video of people saying what they believe in.

    Or is it just wrong to expose children to people who believe in things you don't?

    Jeez, when I was a kid, we were FORCED to pledge allegiance to the flag and affirm our nation's connection to God. And we had a neo-Nazi come to speak about his beliefs. He pledged allegiance to Adolf Hitler. It made for a good and lively discussion. We called that education about other points of view. This is nothing.

    I smell an American Taliban.

    You're assuming we're all Republicans who oppose this kind of stuff? I happen to be a registered Republican simply so I can vote in the primary in this state. My views are Libertarian. I wasn't a big fan of Bush either.

    So, in your opinion, which is it? Socialism or fascism?
    They are on two different ends of the political spectrum.
    I don't have a dog in this fight but it would be nice if the people yelling the loudest about their discontent could distinguish between one political movement and another...

    And I've lived in both fascist and socialist countries- there's a big difference politically but there's always a group of A$$holes at the top of both.

    Facism was probably the wrong word to use, but we've been drifting towards socialism incrementally for years. Obama just seems to be accelerating the process much faster than previous Presidents and administrations.

    Funny, because I was actually going to try and find a way to cover the Libertarians. I don't know a lot about the party line of the Libertarians, but I always thought that a Catchy slogan for the Libertarians could be "I love, guns, drugs and hookers and I Love America." Don't chastise me too much,:) I'm only speaking to the emphasis on personal freedoms that seems to follow most of the candidates and just like the rest of us love America.

    Believe me, I agree things would be better if it wasn't a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" 2 party system.

    I am from planet Earth, Sir, how about you?

    This is not a video of random "OTHER" people saying who they pledge to, it is a video of celebrities pitching their beliefs that was played for impressionable young people. The issue at hand is that school is no place for political videos of any type. Not every child who attends that school comes from a family that supports the "Obamanation"

    Aaaah, "American Taliban" is the socialistic liberal press and those who control it, or haven't you noticed how pro-lib/anti Conservative the press really is. This cleverly disguised video using liberal celebrities , is nothing but liberal propaganda shamelessly aimed at impressionable grade schooners. The government whether Liberal or Conservative has no business pushing it's "agendas" or "philosophy's" on grade schooners. The "green agenda" is nothing more than a path to socialism, camouflaged in a save the earth/polar bear package. My kids "moral compass" will be shaped by me and my family not by some Liberal think tank...........:jawdrop:
