Corporations Really Suck!

Note: the following Pledge of Allegiance is based on history and fact, not on mythology, delusion, and propaganda.

I Pledge Allegiance to the Flag

Of the Corporate States of Amerika:

One Nation, under Consumerism and Surveillance,

Founded on Genocide, Slavery and Exploitation,

With Liberty and Justice for the Wealthy, Powerful Few,

And Misery and Suffering for the Powerless Many.

  1. how about no pledge at all ? or —
    i pledge alligence to other human beings ….wherever they may be …etc

  2. Ed Ciaccio,
    You’ve got it right.

    But don’t let these corporate interests and ruling elite define our country for you… it’s much more than what they’ve brought it down to. It’s the hopes and dreams of everyone who came to the U.S. for a better life, for freedom, respect, equality, to escape tyranny and poverty. We can make those dreams come true. We can still do it. I believe in the power of the people. This sorry state of affairs can be turned around and a different reality shifted into being as we come together in spirit with people all over the world. Let’s shatter the lies and let truth prevail! Then we’ll see what happens. I support you in challenging the myth.

    • Well said Ariel,, and a hopeful message. Our legal structure still exists to allow us to kick the crooks out, and to have accountability from our government.
      America the country is not the same thing as America the nation state, that is run by the mil/ind complex.
      There is hope for this country, working with the world, for peace and justice. Difficult to have hope for peace at times, especially after our new peace president just sent 110 cruise missiles down in Libya. Crazy times . Obama is seeming little more than a government spokesperson these days , and sadly, not even on the same page as the Pentagon generals like Mullen.
      Hard to tell who is leading who .

  3. Our City Council just narrowly voted to recite the pledge before meetings. It has not been a tradition up until now and in our liberal college town it was quite unpopular. Someone rewrote the pledge to: I pledge Allegiance to the City of (city, state), and to the chamber, for which it stands, one city, under Bob (that’s our mayor), with wealth and influence for the privileged few. Now if we can just gather 30 or 40 people to loudly recite the new version we might send a message.
