You might be a redneck if…

You might be a redneck if: It never occurred to you to be
offended by the phrase, ‘One nation, under God..’

You might be a redneck if: You’ve never protested about seeing
the 10 Commandments posted in public places.

You might be a redneck if: You still say ‘ Christmas’
instead of ‘Winter Festival.’

You might be a redneck if: You bow your head when
someone prays.

You might be a redneck if: You stand and place your hand
over your heart when they play the National Anthem


You might be a redneck if:
You treat our armed forces veterans
with great respect, and always have.

You might be a redneck if: You’ve never burned an American
flag, nor intend to.

You might be a redneck if: You know what you believe and
you aren’t afraid to say so, no matter who is listening.

You might be a redneck if: You respect your elders and raised
your kids to do the same.

You might be a redneck if: You’d give your last dollar to a friend.

I guess I’m a Redneck.  God Bless the USA !

I pledge allegiance to… Mexico?

Welcome to Texas… the 32nd state in the United Mexican States.  Well, at least this is according to teacher Reyna Santos at Achieve Early College High School in McAllen, Texas.  During the week of the 9/11/01 observances and even U.S. Constitution Day, the students in her Spanish class were made to memorize the national anthem and pledge of allegiance of Mexico.  In addition, the students were required to recite them individually while standing at the front of their class.

United States Constitution, Article III, Section 3

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.

With thousands of their violent criminals and narco-terrorists crossing our border each year to engage in acts of violence against our citizens and law enforcement personnel, when does Mexico constitute an enemy?
