    The Pledge of Allegiance is NOT open to editing by a television conglomerate. NBC does not own the Pledge! It is not theirs to edit! The Pledge is the Pledge and belongs to our Country. This goes beyond Christianity. It is unpatriotic to alter out Country's pledge. What a crap heap they are. NBC is demonstrating the popular anti-American way passed down from the "leader" in the White House. It was purposeful and not a "mistake."

    Wht would NBC edit Pledge?

    Anyone with a minor degree of understanding of psychology understands that nothing like this happens by accident.

    NBC is testing the resolve of those of us who are still conscious of the US Constitution and our pledges to it! NBC is covertly studying how far they can stretch their socialism push!

    What you don’t understand Jack is that these covert intentions have already infiltrated most local governments and the public schools in this Country; this is why those of us who are still awake want to strip the Public Service Unions of their stranglehold on our local, state, and federal budgets!

    They were trying to see how far they could go, trying to see if they could get away with it and set a presedent.

    Cafferty, why does it boggle your mind that individuals at NBC would edit out a controversial part of the pledge that was only added in the 1950s? Is their edit any more offensive than changing the original pledge to add a God that a large (and quickly growing) percentage of Americans don't believe in? Religion is not what makes this country great or "American." In fact, our founding fathers went to great lengths to free us from a system where religion was tied with politics.

    No not nearly enough. Ridiculous~and a pack of lies as to who they are blaming it on. This being 'political correct' is going to be the death of our nation. It's totally out of control.

    I would have liked to see NBC own-up to not just a bad decision by a small group of morons, but to the other morons who allowed the most offending morons to be hired in the first place. And further, to figure out what other group of morons allow any group of subordinate morons to feel entitled to do something so outrageous without consequences.

    So, in keeping with NBC's policy of selective editing, I will selectively edit the NBC channels from my channel selector. We'll see if the morons who actually own and operate the network are smart enough to connect the dots between viewers and bankruptcy.
