Thats true, it's really not had alot of media inn the last few months. It didn't make since to me how they feel it will heel social injustices in our county anyway. I'M don't care personally, it's just another ***** secession

I don't care if they kneel in protest. That's their right. But IMO, the fact that players can kneel during the national anthem and not end up found hanging from a tree disproves much of their argument about race relations in America.

Shady, thanks for your opinion however ridiculous. Trust me being like your hero Buchanan is the furthest thing from my mind.

My statement stands nobody especially a teacher has the right to change the pledge of allegiance. I bet you still watch NFL games regardless if their players stand for the national anthem? I Don't.

Pukelover, you stated that other students get offended by the Christian God being left in the pledge of allegiance. What about those students who love God and want it left in the pledge of allegiance? Well I'm sorry that liberals like yourself have tried to take God out of government and they have taken it out of the schools that we know, the courthouse, our money. If you liberals don't love the United States like it is please leave!

Otherwise you can kiss my ***! Your welcome!

Who gives you or anybody especially a teacher the right to change anything? The funny thing is you say first amendment all the way until it comes to the issue over God why?

the ROTC is not a liberty to change the Pledge of Allegiance. They are a military unit nominally under the command of the President. If you doubt that wait for war to happen. In College ROTC cadets are taught that in the event of war they can be activated at any time. It's a bit trickier with JROTC, however if you are in JROTC and 18 years of age you can be activated.

I suspect the fact Gen. Longstreet later converted to the Republican party and helped President Grant during the arduous reconstruction led most southerners to consider him a traitor. Thus there are very few status in the south to Gen. Longstreet. There is a statue to him at Gettysburg though.

Speaking of thinking, what you fail to comprehend is that the pledge of allegiance can only be edited or changed by an act of congress. Children don't have the right or legal power to pick and choose what part they want and don't want. If you want to edit the pledge, petition congress.

Also, I'm just stating the fact here. You are listening to rumors spread by a high schooler who told their mom and dad. Teachers can't express any form of religion without describing other religions in this society because parents start reacting like you.

jack rip her, your just too scared to say anything out of line that disagrres with the public. Stop hiding behind a computer like they now adays teach kids to do. So what, your a grown adult, start acting like one and stop listening to kids who think that they are special because their parents didn't teach them respect or responsibility. Stop acting like a middle schooler and throwing a tantrum over something that the WHOLE COUNTRY is slowly doing. Get your crap together Ashe County.

Puppy love the down fall of your rant is the first time you used the word think.

You can also call me "dog love".

You people may hate on the school and even the ROTC program for "changing the pledge," but I don't think you realize that it is up to the students to make that decision for themselves. Every single one of the teachers in that high school cannot force you to say "under God" since many people is tis country is in uproar about those two words. Also, a lot of school don't say that in the pledge anymore because people think it is offensive to those who don't have a religion or those who see it pertaining to the Christian God. Before you decide to go into a frenzy, think about this: was the child who told this to their parents upset at the Master Sergeant, or did the student take the interpretation of what he said the wrong way. Think before you people start to overreact to something that could have been a misunderstanding. Most of you, or even all of you are adults, don't lash out at something before you know the truth.

Lee struggled with slavery, yet he thought it was a needed institution. He wrote a letter saying that slavery was needed to civilize the black race. Even went as far as saying the whipping of negros was necessary to teach them to be human. So while I agree he was more progressive than some, he was far from being anti slavery as some makes out.

Lincoln also had his struggle as well. It wasn't until midway through his Presidency that he truly thought blacks should be freed to coexist with whites. He had a plan to free them 5gen expel them from the US.

Why do we not see monuments of General Longstreet spread through the south?

Robert E. Lee was also one of the more progressive Confederate Generals. His wife in violation of Virginian law educated their slaves with his blessing. He also released his slaves at the onset of hostilities. On the other hand Union General Ulysses S. Grant kept his until the 14th Amendment passed.

Lincoln miscalculated. He never thought the South would actually cede, even though they had been threatening to since Andrew Jackson was president (Jackson told them he'd lead the Union Army himself and most of the Southern politicians shut up during his administration, they feared him a lot more than they feared Lincoln).

However the greatest miscalculation was John Wilkes Booth assassinating Lincoln. Reconstruction would not have happened as it did had Lincoln lived. He wanted as quick a reconciliation as possible. It is possible that Congress would have impeached him if he had lived based on the policies he had espoused (They tried to impeach Johnson who implemented only a portion of what Lincoln wanted to but they failed to remove Johnson from office by 1 vote). If Lincoln had won the likelihood that the 13th and 14th Amendments would have passed as written is well in doubt. They would have certainly been delayed.

Lincoln would have found Lee a willing person to help smooth through reunification though. Lee was well respected enough that the two of them probably could have worked out a compromise.

I'm offended with the BET channel. Does it give me the right to destroy it? Based on their argument of what's offensive, I could. Instead, what I do is just turn the channel. ;-)

Seriously, let him go? On what grounds?


Posted 4:56 pm, 09/12/2017

Did the Master Sergeant intentionally change the pledge, or was he just having a brain fart? Did anyone ask him why? If he changed it intentionally, he needs to go. Otherwise, let it go.

Moonlight is bitter at the superintendent for some reason. Probably feels their child was slighted in some way and keeps trying to make up problems that are not there.
