"I use the "under law" as well. I also told my grand kids to use it as they have to mouth the pledge every day (my grand kids are all Atheist)."

"Serendipity, Jim. Your mentioning 1940 and booklover's (in the previous post) mentioning 1943. In 1940, SCOTUS ruled that schools could expel kids who refused to pledge allegiance. America's patriots (and local governments) promptly…"

"It means god is a dangerous element and one should be insured against his predations.  I don't know if any Atheist have taken their insurance company to court asking them to prove that "god" had any hand in the damage."

"Rudy, get gods out of government? Religion teaches people to be helpless. What will America's helpless people do? No magic wand will grow their power. And this: judges who say IGWT isn't religious are afraid of America's BILLIONS(?)…"

"I do this too. If it is against the law, at least it'll be hard to catch someone doing it because they could just say: "It was already on there, I have no idea who did that!" hahaha"
