This nation and the world for that matter has been evil long before Obamacare or tardy city councilmembers. You want to find the devil you need only to look in the mirror.

Your demanding that people respect the flag. If it makes you feel better to pledge to a symbol of corporate greed and systematic murder knock yourself out!

Yoxtheimer,

There are countries that demand allegiance or........and there are countries that don't. Aren't you fortunate you live in the latter?

I'm looking down at these posts and while I shouldn't be surprised at much anymore at 61, someone (in this case, several) people surprise me.

If you don't like America, leave it, period.

If you don't have the common decency to quiet your anti American sentiment in a day when our country should be showing some sort of unity in light of what is happening in our govt., then please...by all means...find your way to the door.

It is the blood that was spilled that gave you your right to be offended, obnoxious and frankly, a smell that many can't stand anymore. This isn't about Republican/Democrat views. It's about loyalty and integrity, something that some of you clearly lack.

Rick, I don't like most of your posts, but your post of Oct. 11 at 12:42 pm. is a new low, even for you. Any politician, regardless of party line, paid with tax dollars has a responsibility. The writer, to my knowledge, never stated their political affiliation.

Good 5:20 pm post, Cap!

I have often wondered why people want to stay here, when those people and ideologies they aspire and love so much, exist and thrive well in other countries.

Excellent letter Mr. Holt. Get ready for the barrage of leftists "victims' mindsets" of "It's not my fault I'm late. The manufacturer of my iphone didn't stay awake during production."

No I prefer to stay in the US and watch it's continuing descent into into the dark abyss. Hubris is this nations greatest stumbling block. Most will never realize this until it's too late, that is if it's not already too late.

What meaning does a flag have when the nation & people it represents are morally an intellectually bankrupt?! -Yoxtheimer

I'm sure Edward Snowden would love some company in Russia if you hate this country so much.

If you need someone to explain it to you, there's no help for you. It's obvious that our borders are open. You're free to find a better country to call home.

Twinder, well said and I couldn't agree more. Following 9/11 you saw "patriots" coming out of the woodwork and it was difficult to even find a flag to purchase. Flag manufacturers said they had back orders for months because of the sudden high demand. It's sad that it takes a tragedy such as 9/11 to remind people that they are Americans, and to be proud of that fact.

How do you live freely under, and govern others who live freely under, a flag and refuse to pledge your allegiance to that very same flag? The flag represents our Country. Not pledging allegiance to our flag translates to not pledging allegiance to our country and our people. It's not a right or left thing. I fail to see how anyone would not want to pledge allegiance to the flag of this great country. You can dislike and despise your government people all you want but, how can you NOT love this country?

"...Ms. Miele has the right to refuse to pledge her allegiance to the flag...her refusal makes her unfit to serve as an elected official."

So people are free to follow a different ideology than you, they just shouldn't be allowed to hold office if they do. I'm very thankful I live in America and not a country that would allow that, thanks for reminding me.

Reciting the pledge a "meaningless ritual" ? What size egg did you hatch from Mr Chicken?

I think it's quite a bit more ignorant to be so hung up on meaningless rituals like reciting the pledge of allegiance.

"No one cares if someone is a few minutes late for work!"

I bet the person who signs your paycheck (if you get one) cares very much if you're a few minutes late.

Mr.Holt um how shall I put this... GET A F#%KING LIFE!! No one cares if someone is a few minutes late for work! Maybe it's because she doesn't look forward to having to tolerate your presence.

This is coming from a guy who lost his campaign for City Council once as a Democrat and once as a Republican.

Rick, some things go without saying and should be taught to you when your parents are raising you to be a responsible adult. I guess you missed that lesson in life.

rick424, as taxpayers Ms. Miele is our employee, therefore I believe it is all tax paying citizens of Williamsport's responsibility to "deal with it."
