The words "Under God" didn't make their appearance in the Pledge of Allegiance until 1954 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pledge_of_Allegiance) I would be disappointed but not able to field an adequate objection if they simply remove the words and fell back to the pre-1954 text. Remember also that pledging loyalty to a flag is not the same as showing loyalty to a country. I think that the pledge reminds people of their need for commitment to our nation, but even more important is what happens beyond that.

Obama: I Haven't Made Fun of Tea Baggers

in online games, particularly ones where you are trying to kill your fellow players, tea bagging is what some players do to the looser. You stand your avatar over their avatar's head and bob up and down as if you are making tea. Some games have better graphics than other for this action. If a player's avatar is humanoid male you get a an idea of the humiliation of the victim, and what the bags are. Not funny Mr. Obama or whomever wrote that.
I wish video articles had transcripts. I cannot use computer sound and really would like to have known what was in the article.
When I was regularly shooting it was common knowledge that it only takes a few minutes to modify an AK47 from semi to full, or an AR15 to be an M16. To me in that one point it should be acknowledged that any idiot with a tool kit would be buying a soon to be fully automatic weapon when he purchases one of these guns. What in the devil are people doing with them anyway? I've spent many hours firing an M16. They are not the best for targets, lousy for precision hunting (ie. long distance or small game) and perhaps only good for wasting ammo. Ammo is too expensive to waste in my family. We have a one bullet, one kill policy. (it was nice of the Army to give me all those rounds when I was shooting an M16)
