Fox Commentator Gets Pwnd

 Of course, she manages to sneak in the final word and cut him off before he corrects her blatant lies... again... but once again, FAUX News has learned that it's a bad idea to let intelligent people come on their programs.

I think both of them should

I think both of them should jump off a bridge.

 

 

I don't think the pledge should be said irregardless of whether or not is says "God" because Americans are far too patriotic  and to the rest of the world you guys seem stuck up enough.

Mark it on the calendar.  I completely agree with Pineapple.

(Except that I hate "irregardless" and wish it would go away.)

Heh. Ever since watching Clerks or Clerks 2(I can't remember which one it was), I have used that term simply to annoy people. Unfortunately most people don't recognize it isn't a word, so I don't annoy that many. Ah well.

lol No one can seriously

lol No one can seriously think it's necessary to say the pledge of allegiance every single day? Are the kids going to turn into British people if they don't say it? Are they not going to be proud of being American if they didn't say it ? I can't think of a good reason to say it at all. I don't even know if we have some sort of pledge here in South Africa and I’m proud to live here. Besides their children I doubt they even know the reason for saying it or what it means. I would guess they are just saying it because they are told to...... much like religion.

 

P.s. I'm assuming they say it everyday I wouldn't know.

Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend.

Standard practice, to my

Standard practice, to my knowledge and recollection, is to start the day with the anthem and any pledges. Obviously we didn't have the pledge of allegience here in Canada, but if my memory serves there was the "god saves the queen" poem/song/whatever it was to take it's place here. 

I barely remember those days...

Wait a moment. A school day

Wait a moment. A school day in the US still begins with a pledge/anthem?

It's like a whole country is in some sort of time warp where they are 80 years behind everyone else.

"Physical reality” isn’t some arbitrary demarcation. It is defined in terms of what we can systematically investigate, directly or not, by means of our senses. It is preposterous to assert that the process of systematic scientific reasoning arbitrarily excludes “non-physical explanations” because the very notion of “non-physical explanation” is contradictory.

Canadian schools also start with the anthem.

Very well then. A whole

Very well then. A whole continent which is in some sort of time warp.

I find the whole notion totally alien since I went to an international school. Any pledge of allegience to any flag or nation is totally irrational and (as a mandatory occurance in school) should be scrapped as an anachronistic practice, along with beginning the day with the anthem.

Not sure about Mexico though

Not sure about Mexico though Sticking out tongue

 

It's usually just the music though


 

I wonder if that's because atheists got their panties in a bunch over "God keep our land glorious and free"

 

Or probably it's because it's annoying to have to sing it in both English and French, because when it was sung, it was in English then French.

Actually, Canadian schools

Actually, Canadian schools may be on the verge of a transition. There is a school, I think it was in the maritimes, but you'd have to look through the news to find out exactly where, that recently stopped using the anthem. There has been a fair bit of controversy over it, but I haven't paid all that much attention to it.

As for the "god keep our land" phrase of the anthem, I always modify it to "we keep our land". A simple and minor adjustment that changes the anthem to actually mean something on that particular line.

I would just like to point out that I live in Connecticut and I had chili cheese fries for lunch. American poutine has MEAT and hot peppers FTW.

 

That much being said, I am normally not a huge fan of Michael “please slap my peepee one more time” Newdow. However, he got one good salvo off here with the bit about slavery. There really is nothing to debate about slavery. Leviticus 25:44-46 clearly states that I have the right to hold Canadians and Mexicans as slaves. I can also hold slaves from any group of “temporary workers” which clearly refers to illegals from places like El Salvador and Nicaragua and the children of the same.

 

So if America is really a Christian nation then those who seek to come here illegally really ought to think twice about having “anchor babies”.

We did the plegdge of

We recited the pledge of allegiance every morning, but no anthem. Heck, most students don't even know the name of the national anthem.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare

This comment suggests you have no idea just how many variations of the term "poutine" we actually have. Sticking out tongue

what

i think the pledge needs to be abolished entirely. government should not mandate children in schools to pledge their allegiance to them or their idea of the right deity. it either needs to be revised and chopped out of under god, or the kids just need to get educated rather than spending time pledging yet not knowing the significance and history behind it.

That's why my friends and I have taken to saying "disirregardless" to make sure we find ourselves back at the original meaning of the word we were trying to say in the first place: "regardless". Go ahead, try it, it's fun!

While I always admire and bow to a proper comedic dispensation of "ftw", I have to interject:

Jesus Christ, you people want heart disease. It's like the one national sport Americans can agree on. We let the poutine go as a French thing, because French genetics must somehow allow for a fatty diet, but fries, cheese and greasy chili? That's nasty.
