They told me if I voted for Trump there would be loyalty oaths

AND THEY WERE RIGHT!

I took a real one on October 29, 1973. It did not expire with the end of my enlistment.

  1. Their "Constitution" is different than ours: ours is what the document actually says; theirs is the "living, breathing" version that they can bastardize to mean whatever they want at that moment. But, I put democrats expressing fealty to the Constitution right up there with their talking-point recitations of scripture to make a point (which makes me think of Shakespeare "Even the devil can cite Scripture for his purpose").

  2. I took the same oath about 5 years later.

  3. I took the oath in 85.

    I went so far as to adopt an appropriate pledge of allegiance when saluting the flag. The flag is the wrong sovereign.

    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution of the United States of America and to the republic that it governs, one nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

  4. I took the oath in '68, and it still binds me today. These dipshits (can I say that) really do make me angry. So very sanctimonious.

  5. "Loyalty oaths"?

    Nope, you mean "royalty oaths". That's where the Red Queen spends the next eight years muttering "I shoulda [gerund] won!"

  7. Perhaps in addition to taking that oath they will actually read the Constitution.

  9. What filth like Messing fail to comprehend, is that the days of celebrity worship are over. They just don't matter; no one listens to them; no one believes them. These cretins are on a sinking ship.

  10. Same for me, Don. That oath has meaning to every man and woman who serves.

  11. I took my oath in 1977 and they didn't say anything about an expiration date. All elected officials (and for that matter appointed officials and regular employees) should have mandatory classes on what the oath really means, and there should be a pass or fail examination upon completion or no taking office. Anyone failing to uphold the oath should be summarily dismissed. - Elric
