I'm siding with the city on this one.

It's their clubhouse, and their rules.  Every single one of their rules falls like the shabby house of cards it is, if they don't pay homage upstream to the State.  Without the mythos of the FedGuv, the City has no fangs to keep the plebs in line.

If you come into my house, you cannot make me recite the pledge, or disarm me.  Take down any of my Randian or Anarchist decorations on the wall and replace them with the trappings of the State, and I'll show you my boot.  Things will get a mite "uppity" if you try and push the other way.

City hall ain't a place for anarchism.  In most ways, the City is more detrimental to day to day freedom than FedGuv.  It's a giant HOA that has granted itself the monopoly to kill, run amok. 

City hall is the home of the State.

If you don't want to be part of the City, then going to the heart of its imaginary power and paying homage to portions of its faith but not others is not going to win you any new acolytes into your faith of ancapliberminarchvoluntaryism.

Look how much success the State had, bringing their trappings of power into the heart of JackFest the last couple years (hint:  zero).

Known about it for several years.  I refer my little brother to it when he does dumb stuff, sometimes. ;D

great source.  it's unfortunate there's not a sister-site for today's women, or more importantly any interest in becoming or remaining ladies.  they're increasingly becoming lost in a sea of retarded feminist bullshit.

Jesse Benton has resigned as the campaign manager of Mitch McConnell's re-election campaign after former IA state Senator Ken Sorenson plead guilty to bribery in regards to accepting money to leave the Bachmann campaign and joining the Paul campaign during the 2012 race.

I am no fan of Benton and know virtually nothing about this Sorenson guy but seriously with all of the things politicians and people who work for political campaigns do why should accepting money to leave a campaign and work for another campaign by a crime? People who work for political campaigns at the top level get paid to do so. Many are professionals and it is a major source of their livelihood. If an executive for GM were offered more money to work for Ford and he accepted the offer that would not be a crime. It is common for a business to recruit a top person from a competitor. It is not a bribe or crime to do so.

Back when I was a member of the Libertarian Party I attended a state LP convention and at that convention the pledge was recited. I think that was 12 years ago in St. Augustine.

Now that's interesting. I worked closely with the Calif. LP for 20 years, going back before it was a political party at all (before I got wise to it all), and I cannot remember ever having the "pledge" part of any meeting or convention.  Maybe that's a local or state thing.

Somebody who attended the convention requested that the delegates say the pledge and the chair asked everyone to stand and face a flag that was in the room and recite the pledge.

Last time I was in a crowd where the damned "pledge" was recited, I just stood quietly while they got it out of their system. Nobody actually seemed to notice.  Never said it since grammar school, and not often there. The teacher would insist I put my hand on my chest... and I later learned that the proper form earlier had been the Nazi salute... interesting stuff. http://forgottenhistoryblog.com/the-official-american-flag-salute-used-to-be-a-hitler-salute/

BTW... I've been to a few city council and county commissioner's meetings here, and don't ever remember the "pledge" being part of it.

When I attend sporting events I usually stand for the anthem because there have been a few occasions when someone has said something to me on occasions when I did not stand. Sometimes I am not in the mood for that. There are times when I don't stand but usually I do.

As usual, I have to ask "Where the hell was this child's mother?"  While I'm really glad he didn't pour boiling water or gasoline on the tot, he still needs a horse whipping.
