Yay patriotism!

...and the attempts to instill it at school.

dawntreader90 about the Pledge of Alliance:

"the thing i recall most about the Pledge happened in fifth grade. we had a teacher who INSISTED we not take a breath between "one nation under God" because there is no comma. yet if you listen to everyone who says the Pledge, they say, "one nation *breath* under God" and they say it like there's a comma. they pause. to this day, i'm probably the only person on the planet that knows there isn't a comma. and now you.

that is what i ultimately learned after all my years of saying the Pledge of Allegiance. :)"

should context be taught in school?
