I’m so stinkin fired up right now. I’m angry (but not sinning), I’m hurt (but not wishing to administer pain), I’m disgusted (to the point of high blood pressure), and I’m disappointed (but not to the point of giving up). My wife says I need to choose my battles but there are so many things wrong in this country that I’m havin a hard time figuring out which to do battle with. And I think I’ve realized that this is the whole point of the liberal agenda. The left is flooding us with.such a barrage of items that we as conservatives are beginning to feel overwhelmed. And if we’re overwhelmed then we’re not thinking properly and they’ve won half the battle.
OK, so why am I fired up? I reckon the hot topic fer me right now is the Rivera Independent School District in Rivera, Texas. One of the (un-named) members of my youth group was talkin about their Spanish class. And in the course of this discussion I was informed that as a prerequisite to pass tbe class they were required to learn the UNITED STATES PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE in Spanish. As a veteran and the son/grandson/great-grandson of a veteran I have a HUGE problem with this. Now perhaps you don’t see an issue here, perhaps this is just a way to learn a 2nd language? But why of all things would the teacher insist on the Pledge Of Allegiance? Surely with all the text books and articles available some other published work could have been chosen. Y’all tell me, maybe I’m missin something here and my anger is unjustified.
Perhaps I’m going a little overboard and should just let this go? Perhaps the millions of veterans who served honorably don’t mind that our Pledge of Allegiance to the United States is desecrated in this horrendous way? But I doubt it!!! I know I’m not alone here, it’s time we get active in our communities, it’s time we start attending those board meetings and let our voices be heard. We can’t let these liberals stamp on everything we hold dear.
YOU SEE THIS FLAG? DO YOU UNDERSTAND THIS ALLEGIANCE THAT WE PLEDGE? I SWORE AN OATH TO DEFEND THIS COUNTRY AND I WILL CARRY THIS OATH TO MY GRAVE!!!! SOMETIMES I RECKON IT’S OK TO GET A LITTLE UPSET.
