Red Skelton's Commentary on 'The Pledge of Allegiance'
From the Red Skelton Hour, January 14, 1969
Actual Recording with 'Real Audio'
- - Me; an individual; a committee of one.
- - Dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self-pity.
- - My love and my devotion.
To the Flag
- - Our standard; Old Glory ; a symbol of courage; and wherever she waves there is respect, because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts, Freedom is everybody's job.
Of The United
- - That means that we have all come together.
- - Individual communities that have united into forty-eight great states. Forty-eight individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose. All divided by imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common cause, and that is love of country, of America
. And to the Republic
- - Republic--a sovereign state in which power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern. And government is the people; and it's from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.
For which it stands
- - One Nation--meaning, so blessed by God.
- - Incapable of being divided.
- - Which is Freedom; the right of power for one to live his own life, without fears, threats, or any sort of retaliation.
- - The principle, or qualities, of dealing fairly with others.
- - For All--that means, boys and girls, it's as much your country as it is mine.
And now, boys and girls, let me hear you recite the Pledge of Allegiance:
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic, for which it stands; one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Since I was a small boy, two states have been added to our country, and two words have been added to the Pledge of Allegiance: Under God. Wouldn't it be a pity if someone said that is a prayer, and that be eliminated from schools, too?
Red Skelton (July 18, 1913 - Sept 17, 1997)
Thanks Red, ... "Good Night and...May God Bess"
our heroes like white hats...
Of course, we do have heroes that wear black berets...

Pentagon is stating that this is a huge operation and that no half-measures are being taken. "We went straight downtown."
Reports coming in that many of the flights originated from Russia ... but the taliban is being hit from all sides ... land sea and air.
"Never underestimate the wrath of a patient man."
To any newbie........STICK AROUND.
Flamed, hurt pride?
STICK WITH U.S.
SIMPLY THE BEST!
To: Jakarta ex-pat, Alamo-Girl ...NEWCOMERS.....
Kandahar airport command has been destroyed according to CNN ... all electricity was wiped out in Kabul less than an hour before our response began ...
AG ... just after givin' you some "real time" comments, here ... *prayers* continue for you and your family ....
To: illstillbe, Alamo-Girl
Tony Blair is speaking now ... thanking the Brittish Armed Forces ... "No country lightly commits forces ... but made it clear after the 11th ... no doubt in anyone's mind that bin laden masterminded attacks on US ... almost a month since ... ultimatum was not been met ... they were given the choice to side with justice or terror ... chose terror ...do not know how long this action will last but we have resolve ... I can confirm that last Wed. US made request that we deploy assets ... which we did ... submarines, aircraft ... US is the lead in this operation ... but UK,Russia,Autralia etc. are involved ... a powerful coalition ... and has been strengthened by the leadership of President Bush ....."
To: Alamo-Girl ...NEWCOMERS ....
Reports in that we are attacking the homes of the families of the taliban ... and that the home of the taliban religious leader ...Omar (?!) has been hit and destroyed....
To: Alamoe-Girl ...NEWCOMERS ....
Rumsfeld just lately spoke and then answered hair-hurtingly stupid questions from the press .... but made it clear that the action continues ... even as he spoke. Example ... one reporter asked if there had been any reports of American casualties ... to which he responded ..."Not up to the time I walked to this podium ..." ...
I added an "e" to your name in my haste ... *sigh*
*Prayers* continue .... I hope you will find some time for a little quiet rest, I do ... you must be exhausted ....
To: Alamo-Girl .... NEWCOMERS .....
Just before 5 PM EST it is being reported that a third
attack is underway. It is said to be massive
Seems our Mighty Forces ... aided by His awesome Might .... are on a well organized, justified rampage .... may it be so ....
"The battle is now joined on many fronts. We will not waver, we will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail. Peace and freedom will prevail." - President George W. Bush (October 7, 2001

To: Alamo-Girl ....NEWCOMERS .....
I will be away for the rest of the evening, I think ....
But it is now being reported on FOX that there are credible reports citizens of small towns in Afghanistan ... are taking to arms ... whatever they have .... against the taliban .... this is something the US and the entire coalition was hoping to see ...
Meanwhile ... it is only the US and UK involved in this first stage .... actively upfront, at least ....
Cheney has been moved to an undisclosed and safe place ... the Emmy's have been canceled which troubles me not at all ...
I am assembing a list of people who would make perfect human ordnance ... most of them would have been at the Emmy's ... HAR!

To: Inge_CAV, Alamo-Girl ...****NEWCOMERS****
A mid-afternoon HELLO to all you wondrous
Well ... our bombs are raining down justice even as we speak. There have been reports that some Airmen have written NYPD on the sides of some of the bombs .... message sent and received ... good.
To: illstillbe and everyone welcoming newcomers!
Thank you all so very, very much for keeping this newcomer welcome thread active!!!
Thank you also so very, very much for all your thoughts and prayers for my sister and the family! PRAISE GOD!!!
You are back with us ... this makes my heart happy, Alamo-Girl ...
Is there any way we could convince you to take some time for you?! ... Just a bit, mind ... for we would have to chain you down for more than a bit ...LOL!!!
Oddly ... I was just coming over here to give your hard work another *bump* ...
Please ... do not feel the need to reply to the hundreds of replies to you ... just take a minute and let them all cloak you in love ... and maybe some much needed strength ... you've done it for us more than you will ever know.
WELCOME BACK, dear Alamo-Girl!!!!
In recent days I have mentioned lasting things
... those things
which make us know that you can bring our Towers down ... our planes too ... but out of the dust and debris ... the lasting things
prevail ... some simple
... a hand freely held ... a heart openly given ... some stunning
... a life freely and openly given
I see our Alamo-Girl is back ... lasting things ... so now I only want to ask you all to please stay alert ... stay safe ... stay informed ... and this is one of the best places to be for that ... but above ALL ... hold tight to the lasting things ... they will see you through, they will.
As Alamo-Girl will tell you ... PRAISE GOD!!
Okay, here's a newbie question. Why do people avoid typing out the word God? I've seen several posts that have G-d rather than God. At first I thought that it was a sign of disrespect from nonbelievers, but I've seen it used in context by people who are obviously devout Christians.
So what gives?
posted on 10/08/2001 3:04:11 PM PDT
I can begin to answer your question ... though others more informed will hopefully fill in the rest...
In the Jewish religion it is disrespectful to write His entire name .... thus the "-" instead of the "o" ...
I always worry I am offending people for whom I have such high respect ... because I do put the "o" between the "G" and "d" .... each time I type it ~~~ I worry ...
Soooooooo good to see you back! We praise God for you and for FR, among our many blessings!
posted on 10/08/2001 3:55:25 PM PDT
Thank you so very much for the warm welcome back!!!
I'm going to take your advise and go to the Ozarks for the weekend, watch the leaves change, feed a few catfish and listen for the water rippling!
To: Just another Joe
