I didn't post this to start an argument of any kind but I would like to point out that this IS The United States of America. I realize some folks live here who come from different places and have different religions. However, having said that I also feel like if they came here for the opporunities they could not have in their own countries they should respect our country. I've never once forced anyone to recite the pledge, but I have said they do need to at least stand up and be quiet while we who do recite the pledge do so. To me that is the worst kind of disrespect. I don't begrudge anyone coming here for an education, PROVIDED they aren't here to blow us up when theyre through getting said education. I know we have many opportunities that they wouldn't have in their own country. I don't begrudge anybody the right to an education. I do however feel that while they are here they should show the proper respect to this country. JMHO : )
