    If you guys are going sit on your jokes,I'm going out in search

    of what left of the occupy.They had a court order that allowed

    them to occupy city hall.They made the mistake of all leaving the place

    unattended. The police was watching and when they gave up

    there space the city took it back.The court may not give them

    a new court order,because they gave up there cause.

    To hear you talk there is only one, when they are scattered all over.

    I see a lot of flag poles without U.S. flags,check it out as you drive around.
    Fla is more diverse than Texas,keep me up to date on your viewing.When
    I give the pledge,I say it loud enough to let every one know its still there,
    I have been at some meetings,when some one says"now the pledge"
    there no flag in the room.We have pledged to a flag lapel pin,that a sorry
    state of affairs.

    Another aspect of patriotism is supporting the right to assemble, protest, right injustices and make one's voice heard. Just as important as the right to say the pleadge loud is the right to protest predatory practices by commercial institutions.

    I received this in a chain email today, odd, because it is nearly exact text of something I posted on another forum over a year ago, but with some added stuff. And the 2 term limit removed.

    I think the changes would definitely slow down the .gov and the number of laws created.

    I think congressional pay should be a fixed percentage of GDP, and should be borne by all (and only) individuals equally.

    This way, they have an incentive to pass laws that improve the economy, not retard it. *And*, by being an out-of-pocket expense to voters, they (the voters) may be more wise in selecting their representation!

    Even better, let the voters in each congressional district decide how much the job pays. And pay them via a levy on that district. Equally apportioned, of course!

    Maybe there should be a form of competition in the job for senator.

    Not sure how that would work, except a bit like the job market. You have to both be good at your job -and- accept a reasonable pay packet (both for yourself and your employer.)

    The biggest thing that bugs me is that they pass laws which they, and all government agencies (down to city level) are immune from.

    Nobody should be exempt, but I guess some people are more equal than others.

    I assume you're including yourself in that ?

    It has 5 verses each of 7 lines :)

    Alright - I knew it had 5 verses...:)

    Nobody sings more than the first verse anyway - even with Her Majesty present.

    I don't mind so much that people may not know about "rebellious Scots to crush" and so on, but not even knowing the first verse... Jeeze Louise...:rolleyes:

    Besides, I believe that it is really only three verses - another three were composed for certain events at that time. One certainly involves crushing rebellious Scots and another probably talks of hating the French. I'm not sure of the third though.

    But don't get me started on certain presidents who speak over the top of it...;)
