    what i would like to know, is when are we going to be the United States. and not put up with the cynical bull thats is plauguizing our country? where is the pledge of alliegence at the debates? where is the pledge of alliegence in our schools??? now that our country has allowed muslims and hhispanics into the US. things have been drastically changing. Federal courts allowing new districts in Texas so the hhispanic has a voice. allowing teachers in Texas, California and other southern states to teach the mexican pledge and national anthems..
