I swear to god, on my way to work this morning I was thinking about the Pledge of Allegiance we recited daily when I was a schoolboy and how strange and reminiscent of a totalitarian regime that is (nothing of the sort is done here in Austria, for example, which hasn’t been part of a totalitarian regime for, eh, years) and how the phrase “one nation under god” always struck me as of questionable constitutionality in view of the separation of church and state; the recent discussion of “god bless america day” over at michele’s is what got me thinking about this I guess.
I even decided to post something about it. Then when I got to the office a guy asked me about buying used cars and that got me so confused it totally deleted the last three hours of my life from my brain and I forgot about it. Then I looked at blogdex and daypop and saw this.
So this means that my brainwaves are influencing Supreme Court rulings. This is obviously a recent development, because otherwise the United States would have a different president. No, wait, it was the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, not the Supreme Court. Doh me.
