Compromise on Pledge of Allegiance in Oregon town has some seeing red

An Oregon town’s City Council voted down a proposal to say the Pledge of Allegiance before every council meeting, but later passed a compromise that seemed to make no one happy.

The approved measure allows the pledge to be recited at just four Eugene City Council meetings a year, those closest to the Fourth of July, Veterans Day, Memorial Day and Flag Day.

It was supposed to be simple, but Councilman Mike Clark soon found out when you’re dealing with God and country, nothing in Eugene is easy.

    What is America becoming? Media and politicians subverting the constitution, towns not allowing the pledge to be said except on four special dates. It’s becoming difficult to recognise the land I was born into.

      My daughter has her class say the pledge every morning.She is one of us that has infiltrated the system.When the election in 08 was going on,one of her kids asked her are you voting for the black guy or the white guy? She corrected him saying she is voting for the best person for the job,the most qualified,he says to her,”My parents are voting for the white guy too”

      He was also the kid that when asked what our state drink is?His reply was Budweiser!!! the correct answer was milk.Who knew?

        Thank GOD for your daughter! We must keep the pledge, the constitution and most importantly, God in our lives. As for me, I’m the color of the stars on the flag and race is unimportant. People, under their skin, are all red blooded…I love milk, and budweiser!

          Does your shop have a name? Possibly the same as yours? Glad you aren’t a smurf! That’s what I call my three youngest grandkids! When they are here visiting, that’s the cartoon show they like most, hence the name.
