An Oregon town’s City Council voted down a proposal to say the Pledge of Allegiance before every council meeting, but later passed a compromise that seemed to make no one happy.

The approved measure allows the pledge to be recited at just four Eugene City Council meetings a year, those closest to the Fourth of July, Veterans Day, Memorial Day and Flag Day.

It was supposed to be simple, but Councilman Mike Clark soon found out when you’re dealing with God and country, nothing in Eugene is easy.

Clark says all he wanted to do was unite the council and show his more conservative constituents that in this city where diversity is celebrated, their more traditional values also are important.

“It’s a little ironic to see those who have championed the idea of tolerance be less tolerant on this question,” Clark Said. Mayor Kitty Piercy called the Pledge of Allegiance divisive. “If there’s one thing the flag stands for,” Piercy says, “it’s that people don’t have to be compelled to say the Pledge of Allegiance or anything else.”

Under Clark’s proposal, saying the pledge would be voluntary not only for the public at the meetings, but the council members themselves.

Councilman George Brown voted against the compromise, saying the Pledge of Allegiance had no place at City Hall. “People can say it in their front yard or backyard,” Brown says. “It really doesn’t help move the city business forward. It does not unite us.”

Another pledge opponent, Councilwoman Betty Taylor compared saying the Pledge of Allegiance to reading from “The Communist Manifesto.”

Moscow on the Willamette.. Green on the outside, Red on the inside. If this doesn’t reflect the Anti American sentiment among “Progressives”, nothing does. Wake up, Patriots.

Obama: ‘Judge me by the people who surround me’

OK.. let’s do that.

Can anyone still claim that the White House occupant has stacked the entire executive branch with people who hold a deep and abiding affection for Marxism? I mean, read the list- follow the stories. Use your own mind. Tell your friends to take a few minutes to learn what this group of elitists hold up as ideals.. and who they associate with. Check out very well footnoted documentaries, such as http://agendadocumentary.com/ . We are messing with fire and it’s time to put it out.

A quick look at how large numbers of people who occupy space in our Congress are working hard to destroy America as we know it. Extensive review of voting records, memberships, ethical problems, connection with anti American organizations such as La Raza, Hamas, CAIR, Communist Party USA, Democratic Socialist Party.. and much more. These are facts, relationships, and efforts that remain hidden from “normal America” compliments of our pro “Big Government” elitist “MainStream Media”.
