Almost there...

Friday, June 28, 2002

So I cheered when they announced that the Pledge in it's current form is unconstitutional. I've felt uncomfortable about it for years, especially about the "under God" that Ike added in the 50's. I was proud that someone had the guts to take it to court and fight it up the chain. I was proud that a federal judge agreed that this is not a reasonable pledge to compel school children and others to say.

Then my friend Lisa wrote to the mailing list wondering about how it was going to get worse before it got better. At that moment, I didn't understand what she meant.

Then I heard what Bush said. To quote the NY Times:
"Bush said the United States needs ``commonsense judges who understand that our rights were derived from God,'' and that he would appoint such judges."

She's right. It's going to get worse. Would some please please please muzzle the president? What an ass.
