Supervisor Jane Kim refuses to recite Pledge of Allegiance

Very interesting but not surprised it is happening in SF.

Our country really is doomed. It is only a matter of time.

Maybe she should spend some time in other countries to find out how good our liberty and justice is.

They're making a big deal out of nothing. She clearly says that she's all for liberty and justice for all, but she doesn't feel the country provides it for everybody yet.

I wouldn't say it either, but the line about liberty and justice isn't one of the lines I see a problem with haha.

What she doing out of the kitchen anyway?

The reporter "said" they didn't have to, so why the hell say anything about the damn thing, she's just getting on a soap box.

"all rise for the pledge of a allegiance..."

Kim: "...excuse me, I'm sorry I can't"

"okay well just sit down and shut up"

Kim: "no thats not what I meant either, I don't believe blah blah blah...making sandwiches...blah blah blah"

I personally find it to be very disrespectful and along the same lines as not putting your hand over your heart, taking your hat off, or not talking during the national anthem.

I find it more disrespectful that they incorporated religion into my pledge of allegiance. It's just a poem, actions speak louder than words.

Yawn. Perhaps some of you ardent patriots have forgotten the first amendment? You know the one that protects peoples' right to freely express themselves however they see fit... Or do those words (and the rest of the constitution) only carry significance when it's something that more closely aligns with your ideology?

Seriously, some of you people need to settle down. This is hardly something to get worked up about.

What makes the USA so great is the right of its citizens to speak freely. The act of not speaking is part of that right.

Do you really want to be part of a country that forces you to pledge allegiance? What will it force you to do next?

I really do not give a damn one way or the other about this lady...what she will or will not do.... but some of the statements made in this thread do bother me... I am quite bothered by the mistaken belief that the pledge and patriotism some how have any bearing on each other.. I myself would be pissed if someone were to question my patriotism based on the fact that I will NOT say the pledge.. to me in fact the pledge will not lift me to good citizen status, what is does do, if you mean what you say when you say it, is remove your citizen status and turn you into a subject.. the pledge is unamerican, it goes against all of the ideals that the declaration of independence, the articles of confederation and the constitution declared to be our foundation and guiding principles....
do not question my patriotism.. I am an old man now, but in my youth I served 3 tours in vietnam for my country...17 of my close friends died... so my generation died and killed for their country...I did not die, but I did kill and i live with that everyday...my patriotism should never be in question... that said.. I will NOT say the pledge..
it has nothing to do with the fact that the pledge as is presently stands includes the words under God... for I personally believe in God... but as a country we believe in the freedom to worship as you please and I would not want a pledge used that would eliminate any of our free citizens from being able to say it and mean it...
my reason for not saying the pledge is that I do not believe in some of the ideas it includes, I believe those ideas to be unamerican, I believe that the words more closely belong to a people that are socialistic, communistic, who believe in the supreme power of a central government... I am not one of those kinds of folks..
I am a believer in individual rights, of states rights..
I see the states united as 50 soveriegn states, united in a union... but that union is not a suicide pact.. i do not see the federal government as being the supreme government with power and authority over the states...
I see the federal government as the constitution established it...not supreme to the soveriegn states, but a government established by the states with limited powers intended to make the union they had a more perfect union, not one that took over...so for me the part of the pledge that I find most offensive is the part that says the nation is indivisible... you will not find the word nation in the constitution.. you will find the words union... our country is a country made up of 50 soveriegn states, working together in a union, not 50 states with their citizens turned into subjects of a supreme federal authority...

This post has undeniable implications that I'd really like to hear. What would you do to show and explain to her just what exactly a patriot is? Do tell.

Obed,
Great post.

Our country does appear to b on s bad trend.
But it's our misguidance that is the problem.
America and Americans are great.
Our government is slipping however.
I love my country. I feel however, that I am losing ownership of it that the founders has invisioned.

We must not lose our freedom to choose

DepPravacion, like you.. I love my country.. and like you I know the difference between my country and the federal government...
I applaud folks who call themselves patriots as long as they understand it is the country, not the government they owe their loyalty to.
I never swore and oath to the feds, I did take one to uphold the constitution.. would it not be nice to see the office holders in D.C. remember that their oath of office was to uphold and support the constitution, not their party....
