I would put her in a Full Nelson while you did it.
The fact that some people have managed to associate a mandatory pledge of allegiance with freedom is laughable at best.
As a permanent resident here (yes I'm here legally) I do not say the pledge of allegiance at events and I get flak for it. ﻿ Even when I tell them I'm not American.
Well, I had a big talk with the teacher and explained that my daughter won't be saying the pledge in Spanish, since English is our national language. I told her that saying the pledge in Spanish is not very patriotic and its a "dicey" thing to do IMHO.
I am not continuing the battle as of yet....
Anyhow, this liberal Blowbama lover (she has one of those full size Obama posters in her room!) speaks spanish and wants the kids in class to get to know other cultures.
I told her a national language is important to promote unity and prevent balkanization and let's focus on English not foreign languages for my daughter...its 4th grade here folks.
She told me that Spanish will probably be our national language in the future. Maybe she should rethink her liberal ways, as we are all on a path to speaking Chinese, thanks to all the debt we owe them.
Can you tell I don't like liberalism or socialism???
For you liberals out there, I still like you, but your ideologies pushed on America over the last 50 years have slowly turned our country into what our forefathers originally were fleeing from. T. Jefferson is rolling in his grave now...
Long live freedom and liberty and justice for all..
