A new wrinkle...sorta makes the whole thing even more pointless than it already was!http://www.azcentral.com/news/politics/articles/20130122ariz...Since filing his bill, Thorpe is having second thoughts about the reach of his proposal and concerns about reaction from students, and says he is planning to amend his oath bill to make it optional and not mandatory.<snip>“Even though I want to encourage all of our students to understand and respect our Constitution and constitutional form of government, I do not want to create a requirement that students or parents may feel uncomfortable with,” he said. “Being a father of two, I also realistically understand that some students will embrace this more than others.”So now it becomes "optional". Assuming he amends it (and assuming it passes, which it could).Of course, Bill 2284 wants to make the Pledge a daily thing again. Of course, I'm sure that's "optional" too...a kid can go outside into the hall if they object, right?The Treason Party is alive and well here. [sigh]
