    How do you feel about liberty and justice for undocumented immigrants?

    In My Opinion.
    I think anything one is expected to recite daily becomes meaningless.

    I dunno. I can still recite portions of the Catholic catechism because rote memorization was sooooo popular.

    That extremely regimented style of school had its advantages. For some kids. In the 1950's.

    Not sure it offers much anymore. I think it should go the way of the Palmer method of cursive handwriting.

    Ms. Labrea,

    They are at liberty to scurry back to the country they belong, and if not, the swift hand of justice should sweep them up an take their illegal asses home.

    It's really not that hard to just read questions and answer them honestly. And you don't know what you would or would not hypothetically be asked to do some time in the future. Do you understand what hypothetical means?
    Mr. Stan,

    Are you saying he was making a ridiculous corollary because he had no point?

    Yeah, loving my country. What a crappy hang up I got.

    It's like saying Grace-something you just do so you don't get weird looks from the devout.

    No. I'm asking if you would stand for a national allegiance pledge if it contained elements that did not meet your approval. It's a simple "Yes" or "No."

    Of course not. So would you stand for such a pledge if you were (hypothetically) asked to do so? If not, why not?
