A new Pledge

The athletes in the NFL and all those that support their blatant disrespect for the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem might find comfort and aid from another Pledge written Professor Dana Cloud:

           I pledge allegiance to all ordinary people around the world, to the laid off Eron workers and the WorldCom workers, the maquiladora workers and the sweatshop workers from New York to Indonesia, who labor not under God but under the heel of multinational corporations; I pledge allegiance to the people of Iraq, Palestine and Afghanistan, and to their struggles to survive and resist slavery to corporate greed, brutal wars against their families, and the economic and environmental ruin wrought by global capitalism.  I pledge allegiance to building a better world where human needs are met and with real liberty, equality and justice for all.
The rot is spreading and the BIG question will it be stopped?
