How To Win Online Debates

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
- - One Nation--meaning, so blessed by God.

- - Incapable of being divided.

With Liberty
- - Which is Freedom; the right of power for one to live his own life, without fears, threats, or any sort of retaliation.

And Justice
- - The principle, or qualities, of dealing fairly with others.

For All
- - 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"

our heroes like white hats...

Of course, we do have heroes that wear black berets...

Pentagon is stating that this is a huge operation and that no half-measures are being taken. "We went straight downtown."

Reports coming in that many of the flights originated from Russia ... but the taliban is being hit from all sides ... land sea and air.

"Never underestimate the wrath of a patient man."

Indeed ....

Tony Blair is speaking now ... thanking the Brittish Armed Forces ... "No country lightly commits forces ... but made it clear after the 11th ... no doubt in anyone's mind that bin laden masterminded attacks on US ... almost a month since ... ultimatum was not been met ... they were given the choice to side with justice or terror ... chose terror not know how long this action will last but we have resolve ... I can confirm that last Wed. US made request that we deploy assets ... which we did ... submarines, aircraft ... US is the lead in this operation ... but UK,Russia,Autralia etc. are involved ... a powerful coalition ... and has been strengthened by the leadership of President Bush ....."

Rumsfeld just lately spoke and then answered hair-hurtingly stupid questions from the press .... but made it clear that the action continues ... even as he spoke. Example ... one reporter asked if there had been any reports of American casualties ... to which he responded ..."Not up to the time I walked to this podium ..." ...

I will be away for the rest of the evening, I think ....

But it is now being reported on FOX that there are credible reports citizens of small towns in Afghanistan ... are taking to arms ... whatever they have .... against the taliban .... this is something the US and the entire coalition was hoping to see ...

Meanwhile ... it is only the US and UK involved in this first stage .... actively upfront, at least ....

Cheney has been moved to an undisclosed and safe place ... the Emmy's have been canceled which troubles me not at all ...

I am assembing a list of people who would make perfect human ordnance ... most of them would have been at the Emmy's ... HAR!
