Senate GOP to require pledge to Georgia flag

In an apparent nod to state sovereignty, Senate Republicans will require members of their chamber to recite the pledge of allegiance to the state flag of Georgia every morning they gather – after a daily devotional and a pledge to the U.S. flag.

The addition to the chambers’ rituals was adopted Friday at a caucus meeting in Macon, as part of a wholesale change in state rules that included the stripping of Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle of most of his powers. Read more on Political Insider.

Uncle Jesse is right on the nose!!! The GA flag is the origianl flag of the confederate staes that flew over Ft. Sumter. All hail the white supremist GOP. It won’t be long till GA and Texas decide to form their own independent nations. (That’s one way not to finish below the rest of the nation in education – don’t participate)
