Our heroes seem to like white hats....
but .... Don't mess with U.S.!
If you are already feeling warm and comfortable - that's a good sign you've found a home in cyberspace. Welcome!!!
The posters here are scratching their heads and digging in their bookmarks trying to find just exactly the right links, pictures and information that might be useful to you as you unpack and settle in. So please be patient with us while we try to get this thread better organized for you.
Here are some things the posters (called "Freepers") believe you might find helpful:
FOX NEWS Via the Internet - How to get it
Where to find talk radio on the Net?
Good Research Links
Intercollegiate Studies Institute
The American Colonist's Library--A Treasury of Primary Documents
Red Skelton's Commentary on 'The Pledge of Allegiance'
From the Red Skelton Hour, January 14, 1969
Actual Recording with 'Real Audio'
- - Me; an individual; a committee of one.
- - Dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self-pity.
- - My love and my devotion.
To the Flag
- - Our standard; Old Glory ; a symbol of courage; and wherever she waves there is respect, because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts, Freedom is everybody's job.
Of The United
- - That means that we have all come together.
- - Individual communities that have united into forty-eight great states. Forty-eight individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose. All divided by imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common cause, and that is love of country, of America
. And to the Republic
- - Republic--a sovereign state in which power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern. And government is the people; and it's from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.
For which it stands
- - One Nation--meaning, so blessed by God.
- - Incapable of being divided.
- - Which is Freedom; the right of power for one to live his own life, without fears, threats, or any sort of retaliation.
- - The principle, or qualities, of dealing fairly with others.
- - For All--that means, boys and girls, it's as much your country as it is mine.
And now, boys and girls, let me hear you recite the Pledge of Allegiance:
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.
Since I was a small boy, two states have been added to our country, and two words have been added to the Pledge of Allegiance: Under God. Wouldn't it be a pity if someone said that is a prayer, and that be eliminated from schools, too?
Red Skelton (July 18, 1913 - Sept 17, 1997)
Thanks Red, ... "Good Night and...May God Bess"
