When I was a young fella, (enough of the jokes, I know that was a long time ago – LOL), each morning when we went to school, our day started with reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. It was an honor to do so and nobody questioned if it was politically correct or not. As a matter of fact, we considered it Patriotic and it was actually fun to honor the country which provided us the liberties and freedom we enjoyed!

In Oklahoma, a bill that has been filed by Republican Senator Rob Standridge of Norman, Oklahoma would require daily recitation of the pledge in public elementary schools which will go before the 2014 legislative session. It would also require every public school in the state to own and display a U.S. flag and suggests that the pledge be recited in other public schools as well. The bill provides an exemption for students who do not wish to take part in the pledge. It is among several pieces of school-related legislation that were filed in December.

A bill by Senator Eddie Fields, R-Wynona, would require the State Board of Education to adopt revisions to the state’s current English, language arts and mathematics requirements to remove alignment with the K-12 Common Core State Standards. The national standards have drawn opposition, especially from conservative House legislators. Field’s bill would also require the state board to take action to initiate a request with the U.S. Department of Education to change the agreement that ties federal funding to the implementation of the Common Core standards.

State lawmakers return to the Capitol on February 3 for the beginning of the 2014 legislative session where I’m personally in prayer for the bill’s passage. It would be so nice to know at least one state is bringing God & Country back into our children’s education.

I have attached a video made by infamous comedian and patriot Red Skelton which explains exactly what the Pledge of Allegiance really means, word by word.

After serving in the United States Navy for 22 years I retired from the service late in 1991. Having always loved the southwest, shortly after retiring, I moved to the Albuquerque area where I have resided since. Initially I worked as a contractor for approximately 6 years doing cable construction work. That becoming a little dangerous, at an elevated age, I moved into the retail store management environment managing convenience stores for roughly 16 years. With several disabilities, I am now fully retired and am getting more involved with helping Pastor Dewey & Pastor Paul with their operations at FGGAM which pleases my heart greatly as it truly is - "For God's Glory Alone". I met my precious wife Sandy here in Albuquerque and we have been extremely happily married for 18 years and I am the very proud father to Sandy's wonderful children, Tiana, our daughter, Ryan & Ross, our two sons, and proud grandparents to 5 wonderful grandchildren. We attend Christ Full Deliverance Ministries in Rio Rancho which is lead by Pastor's Marty & Paulette Cooper along with Elder Mable Lopez as regular members. Most of my time is now spent split between my family, my church & helping the Pastors by writing here on the FGGAM website and doing everything I can to support this fantastic ministry in the service of our Lord. Praise to GOD & GOD Bless to ALL! UPDATED 2021: Rick and Sandy moved to Florida a few years ago. We adore them and we pray for Rick as he misses Sandy so very, very much!
