#15 The pledge was originally nothing to do with 'god' because the USA had separated from a religiously determined monarchy. Religion was not seen as something to be included in the original pledge or important to the identity of the USA. It was changed in the 50's to corral the public against the idea of communism which was presented as synonymous with secular or atheistic ideals.

... Mega-Churches now exist because of the Red scare.

#28 about $2,000.oo USD for those that care.

#38 more likely a snuff ring or a perfume ring.

" It was changed in the 50's to corral the public against the idea of communism which was presented as synonymous with secular or atheistic ideals."

so they did away with the pledge and look at us now, the part of the country that identifies as communists/socialists has increased and our country is a mess

Senator McCarthy was right about Hollywood, they're out in the open and they hate America and everything it stands for

#38 is probably just for cocaine, I would guess.

#29 Those are from the early 1970's. I remember when they put them up. In the Spring and Summer months they hung plants from the ring, and in the winter they put xmas deco's. They stopped after a few years since people kept stealing them. But they remained for the most part until hurricane Katrina hit. Then, the ones that got washed away from the flooded streets were never replaced. But the others on higher streets remained. They still remind us of the time they were all over the city, so they keep them there. But they don't maintain them, sadly.

I just have to come back to add something else about #29, (btw, I wrote the comment above about the horse ring adornments).

The gate that's in the background dates back a lot further than the flagstone and concrete paving. It's pre-civil war in fact and made by creole slave laborer's. The city and neighboring parishes are teeming with these beautiful wrought-iron works. That should've been the topic of the photo since it's head-and-shoulder's more significant. lol But... these are our days I reckon.

@Action If McCarthy and Conservatives like him got their way, the US would be exactly like Iran is today. They are the face of the Christian Taliban. That's who got the god nonsense shoved into the pledge of allegiance. So the next time you b*tch about Iran, liberals, or whomever else you're b*tching about that day, remember who you are: the Christian Taliban.
