I remember that stupid, 3-liner pledge from the 4th grade, which was roughly 1987. Then it stopped and I never heard it again.

Geez, just tonight on FaceBook, I was invited to join the cause, "Texans for Secession." Of course, I did not, but this leads me to believe more wish for it than we may think. They're all goofy.

I've been back with the Texas school system now for 5 years and each and ever morning, the pledge of allegiance to the Texas flag is recited and this was in junior high and now, in high school. I thought it was odd and I must admit, I don't do it. Now to the American flag, yes....that's a given, but the other is just strange to me.

So what is this Texas pledge of allegiance that y'all keep talking about? I've never heard of it. Growing up in Texas we only said the pledge of allegiance to America in the morning and that was only in elementary school. In junior high and high school we didn't do this. The teachers just started lecturing about real exciting subjects.

Honor the Texas flag; I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one state under God, one and indivisible


which is kinda wrong since Texas is divisible, allowed to seperate into 5 or 6 states I think.

Yeah it's allowed to separate into 5 states. We never said the Texas pledge of allegiance in my school. I guess the administrators at my school thought it was silly so they didn't do this.

That's just all the more reason not to believe people about some facts but to do research on one's own.

Oh, and about the one who governs Texas. Yes, he's an idiot.
And well over 60% of Texans agree with you.

However, the majority of those who don't vote in the GOP primary, so there are still some issues.
