I bet at the end of the spiel there's an ask for a monetary donation to *the cause*. Always grifting.
Just at the end? Stop using your Democratic brain, Republicans are professional salesmen. Not only is it continuous with props, glossy brochures, commeratives and catalogs he is probably shaping the dialog TV preacher style to keep it always in mind and to make repeat diners more receptive to his sales pitches.

It is not a waste of time watching that video at all; it's incredibly entertaining. :D

A fash, by any other name, is still just as stupid.

omg this is great


"I want you to really listen to these words as I forget them"

Also, am I the only person who giggles a little when someone reciting the Pledge of Allegiance starts off with "I pledge of allegiance"? ^^
Can't expect a traitor to know these things.

There are very few words I have committed to memory but geez, after having to recite them every morning for 10 years they are stuck in my head.

I think part of the problem is he has tiny Trump-like hands.
I want signs like that, whereby those who wish to destroy cannot quite figure it out. It's corrugated so there are many, many little webs inside it. Had he made a cut in it, then tried to pull it apart, he probably could have achieved his goal, but shh...we shall not let them know that. The opportunity for comedy is too great.

I love that he took it with him. He probably took it down to his basement to study it, lol.

If anyone is foolish enough to ask be to lead the pledge, I will only use the original version.
I'm guessing by 'Original version', you mean the pre '54 one? Though, even the ones before that tended to completely omit references to God, iirc.

This web page says indivisible was in the original.

I can swear I had read the original author struggled with whether or not it was redundant but can't find a link.

Which one? The original (1892) or the 1923 revised? Personally, I use the original 1892 one, if I even bother anymore.


The Pledge of Allegiance was written in August 1892 by the socialist minister Francis Bellamy (1855-1931). It was originally published in The Youth's Companion on September 8, 1892. Bellamy had hoped that the pledge would be used by citizens in any country.

In its original form it read:

"I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
In 1923, the words, "the Flag of the United States of America" were added. At this time it read:

"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
In 1954, in response to the Communist threat of the times, President Eisenhower encouraged Congress to add the words "under God," creating the 31-word pledge we say today. Bellamy's daughter objected to this alteration. Today it reads:

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
