… Definitely , Say the Pledge [#of Allegiance]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,March 21st,2016

.. these anti – religious fanatics are trying to dis – establish the Pledge of Allegiance . Especially as we now know it . Their direct target is the words ” under God ” which were put into the Pledge in 1954 …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the blog news …

.. I would say , continue to say the Pledge of Allegiance . Loudly . Firmly . Resolutely . When it comes to the words ” under God , ” say it as loudly as you care to , so everyone you know [and those who cannot] can hear you …

.. You bet I want to do it in opposition to those bastards and bitches . These people want to dis-establish each and every religious reference that they can get their hands on , no matter where it is . It does not matter in what public or private issue it resides , they want to evict religious from the public as well as the private square , as well …

.. A more obvious reason may be the way the AHA question was constructed. It seems to push the respondent to the desired AHA answer:

 For its first 62 years, the Pledge of Allegiance did not include the phrase “under God”. During the Cold War, in 1954, the phrase “one nation, indivisible…” was changed to read “one nation, under  God, indivisible….”. Some people feel this phrase in our national pledge should focus on unity rather than religion. Do you believe the Pledge of Allegiance should:

1. Return to the unchanged version: “one nation, indivisible”…
2. Continue with the changed version: “one nation, under God, indivisible”…

.. If the AHA wins this campaign, is removing “endowed by our creator” from the Declaration of Independence next?

.. to hell with them …. [literally]….

… The Gettysburg Address [the Sesquicentennial] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 19th,2013

.. today is the 150th anniversary (or , sesquicentennial) of President Abraham Lincoln ‘ s famed oration at the dedication of the National Military Cemetary at Gettysburg , Pennsylvania .

.. The cemetary itself was not complete . The workers for the government were still finding bodies (Union and Confederate) all over the place . Many , many wounded were still being put up in and around the immediate area of the battle , and , due to the medical standards of the time , men were still dying of their battle wounds .

.. President Lincoln was not the primary orator invited to the event . Far from it . The famed ambassador , governor , and well – known orator Edmund Everett was the one that was the focus of attention . Mr. Lincoln was invited to give a few ” appropriate remarks . ”

.. Boy , were they ever ” appropriate . ” Ambassador Everett knew right away the importance of the speech , saying (I think) ” I wish I had gotten the point of the event in two hours , where you , Mr. President , have done so in two minutes . ” Thank you , Mr. President .

.. as to the Civil War , oh yeah , it was still going on . the combined battles of Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge are but a week away . Most of the rest of the campaigning had ceased for the winter , a bit early . Given the brawling throughout 1863 , I am not surprised at that .

.. As to our current President , not now . I will comment on his actions at another time . Here is my presentation of a reproduction of President Lincoln ‘ s Gettysburg Address …

ADDRESS DELIVERED AT THE DEDICATION OF THE CEMETERY  AT GETTYSBURG.

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the  proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.  We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to  dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who  here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate— we can not consecrate—we can not hallow— this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.
It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us— that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—  that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN.
November 19. 1863.
