Lawmaker Replaces Pledge with Poem
Apr 26, 2012
A Massachusetts lawmaker is under fire in Falmouth after she opened a town meeting with a poem instead of the traditional recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.
Melissa Freitag, the vice chair for the Falmouth Board of Selectmen, refused to say why she would not allow her fellow lawmakers or residents to recite the pledge.
I would rather not tonight, she replied when Selectman Kevin Murphy questioned her about the omission.
Falmouth resident Brenda Scannell told the newspaper that Freitags decision was baffling.
I just dont get that at all, she said. I know we certainly have our challenges (in this country), but this seems like a step backward.

He must be against liberty and justice for all.
Those glasses tell you everything you need to know.
BTW Laz would hit it!
If I wanted to make America fail, I would kill God, the family, and allow “Sunshine Americans” to opt out of pledging allegiance to the nation they reside in.
All part of the plan my FRiends, all part of the plan.
AND THE OTHER PEOPLE TOOK IT !!!
They sat there on there collective asses and took it.
Not one of them had the courage to stand up and start reciting the Pledge out loud. That’s all it would have taken to stop this crapp. Instead, the sheep sat there and took it.
Any bets on the gender of her "partner"?
The first thing I thought of when I read this was that Katharine Lee Bates must be spinning in her grave.
“....Freitags decision was baffling.” To whom?
I thought that in the election of selectmen, you chose "no more than" N. The top M vote getters become selectmen. She's more of less guaranteed the votes of every trustifarian moonbat living off their great-grandfather's fortune on the Upper Cape.
What was the poem?
OMG, I laughed for 10 minutes until my gut hurt after seeing your post.
It is so true!!! Those glasses do tell you everything you need to know about her “liberalness”
I pointed this out to my wife a few years ago about how easily you can tell if someone is liberal and the #1 way is by their glasses. The # 2 way is by the way they take care of their hair. Most liberals do not have well groomed hair...
