Flag Day - Porky Pig Recites 'The Pledge", One Nation, Indivisible!

Today is Flag Day, fly old glory proudly, even though the Republicans have stained it so unmercifully. This is a video of Porky Pig reciting the Pledge of Allegiance the way it was written, the way I remember being taught in grade school...

In 1954, Congress after a campaign by the Knights of Columbus, the world's largest Catholic fraternal service organization, (1951 they started using those two words), added the words, 'under God,' to the Pledge. The Pledge was now both a patriotic oath and a public prayer.
Separation of Church and State was not the soup du jour on that day and One Nation Indivisible, was divided! thinkingblue
