“The Pledge”
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.


A comic for the 4th of July; the day we as Americans take pride in our independence. However, this past year my country has broken my heart over and over again, and I don’t feel quite as free as I thought I did. Today I won’t be able to eat apple pie without a bitter taste in my mouth, and the fireworks will remind me of the gunshot sounds aimed at innocent Americans.
Go celebrate Independence Day, but ask yourself why?

In JROTC, we say the pledge of allegiance every morning. You know what I actually say?

“I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of the United States of America. And to the republic, for which is stands: one nation, with liberty and justice for Some.”

And I honestly cannot wait until the Colonel or one of the MSgts actually hear me say it.

All These Broken Hearts on That Pole by gummy-gums

Korra knew this was insane. Absolutely utterly mad. The first time she ever stepped foot in a strip club and of course she had to fall for one of the strippers. The entire thing felt like a tired, worn out cliche. But cliche or not, something was happening and she sure as hell wasn’t going to let it slip through her fingers.Strip Club AU with Korrasami.

Korra enjoys being a radio show host, especially since she gets to help people find balance in their lives with her advice. What they don’t know is that her personal life is nothing short of a wreck. After crashing and burning on all her relationships, Korra is content to be a failure at her own love life. But things never go quite as planned.

With only her wits and trademark penchant for violence, Korra must survive prison fights, horrible food, terrible living conditions, cruel guards, and unbearable sexual tension.

Forbidden Love by dwaaaaaatt

Yet another korrasami teacher/student AU, I love them so I couldn’t resist writing one. I wanted one where Korra plays hockey and after finding none I decided to make my own. There will be smut at some point, so i’ll change the rating once we get there in the story!

Love Isn’t as Easy as the Books Make it Seem by AnotherShotofBourbon

Asami Sato is the CEO of a multi-billion dollar, international company. And six months ago she spent four days in a hotel room with a beautiful woman who never called her back.

On Separate Grounds by awhstiles

Asami’s idea of a perfect vacation did not include surrounding herself with prepubescent angst and hormones. The only (possible) good thing to come out of Opal dragging her half way across the country is Korra, and the fact that she was possibly, slightly, maybe in love with her. AKA Asami and Korra as camp counsellors who are obviously in love.

Pledge of Allegiance

by Mark Berent

As many of you are aware, the Knights of Columbus submitted to congress that the words “Under God” should be added to our pledge of allegiance. Both Houses of Congress passed the law and it was signed by President Eisenhower in 1954. The information below was based on a poll taken by NBC on what percentage should keep the words in our pledge versus the percent who want it removed.

If you read this and agree that “under God” should be left in the pledge, then just forward it to others and you have voted for it to be left in. If you delete it and don’t forward it you are voting NO to “under God.” Easy, huh?

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

NBC POLL; 86% voted to keep God in the Pledge of Allegiance and 14% against. That is a pretty commanding’ public response. I was asked to send this on, if I agreed or delete if I didn’t. Now it is your turn. It is said that 86% of Americans believe the word God should stay. Therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a mess about having God in the Pledge of Allegiance.Why should our Nation cater to 14%?

Special Crimes Court to pave the way to justice for victims of crimes in Central African Republic #CAR

The recent announcement of the appointment of the prosecutor of the Special Crimes Court (SCC) in the Central African Republic marks a major step forward for victims of crimes committed during the conflict in the Central African Republic (#CAR).

The United Nations, through its peacekeeping mission acting on Security Council mandate, played a key role in the establishment and functioning of the court, including the establishment and operation of the office of the prosecutor, the special unit for judicial police, investigative chambers, the special indictment chamber and the registry.

The government of #CAR adopted a law in June 2015 to create the SCC and pave the way to justice for victims and to hold accountable those who have committed crimes since 2012. While the mandate of the court dates back to 2003, it can now play a crucial role to ending the impunity that has driven the recent conflict in #CAR. Although, the court is not yet fully operational, the appointment of the prosecutor, Congolese Toussaint Muntazini Mukimpa is welcomed by human rights organizations, the international community and donor countries.

Once the court is fully operational, @MINUSCA will continue its support to the court by focusing on trials procedures
