    YouTube - Red Skelton's Pledge of Allegiance


    After I watched this . . . all I could do was sit here with my mouth open. Just think, he said this forty (40) years ago (1969), and no one had a clue where we would be at today. It is so sad it should make your eyes tear up, or at least hang your head in ...dis-belief, shame, and embarrassment. What a wonderful and worthwhile clip to watch and share

    The greatest joke is:
    "Government is the people, and it's from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people."

    We're far beyond that, not only in the US. None of the governments of so-called "democracies" represents the will of the people anymore. They only get elected due to a lack of alternative.

    Bygones.

    People have very short term, selective memories, and when we start getting sentimental even those few memories we hold on to become pure fantasy...
