equal immigration footing

Obama: New citizens can skip pledge to take up arms and defend the U.S.
US Citizenship and Immigration Services on Tuesday said it will no longer require incoming U.S. citizens to pledge that they will "bear arms on behalf of the United States" or "perform noncombatant service" in the Armed Forces as part of the naturalization process. Those lines are in the Oath of Allegiance that people recite as they become U.S. citizens. But USCIS said people "may" be able to exclude those phrases for reasons related to religion or if they have a conscientious objection. .

At least this puts them on equal footing with the millions of illegal immigrants, who by definition are not swearing allegiance to this country.


The current naturalization oath (with the highlighted changes I expect to see soon)

"I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen;  embrace and recognize the United Nations as having jurisdiction over a Republican House and Senate; that I will support and defend the fundamental transformation of the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; Christian conservative tea party white people and cops; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; take advantage of free health care, education, food stamps, and welfare that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I swear allegiance to the henceforth perpetually elected Democrat party; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; (or after a visit from Ambassador Bill Cosby and his bag of very persuasive "puddin' pops") so help me Obama

This story was all over, at least for a minute. Musta got yanked. Rest assured I will continue my undercover assignments for the benefit of mankind. Of course, when I say 'mankind', I really mean my half dozen occasional readers. Potato, patahtoe.
