Podcast: The Pledge of Allegiance


In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I talk about the Pledge of Allegiance. We’ve said the words thousands of times.

The majority of you love your police state. You don’t mind local cops driving around in armored vehicles toting military grade weapons.
