One nation, indivisible...

Here we go again. Now that another federal judge has taken the bold step in attempting to remove "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance, I suspect that one or more members of the Washington taliban will climb on the bandwagon to pass a constitutional amendment sticking "under God" right back in.

Before that happens, I urge our elected representatives to consider not wasting time on patriotic grandstanding. Spend your time more wisely on the matters of the day such as loss of jobs, the federal deficit, paying for Hurricane Katrina relief and getting our troops out of Iraq.

Most American probably agree that the Pledge of Allegiance issue is no more significant in their daily lives than the "great flag-burning controversy." As seductive and alluring as it may be to whoop and holler about yet another "activist" federal judge being un-American, we, the voters, ask that you keep your eye on the ball --- and on the issues that really matter to us.
