Eight year old daughter and libertarian-in-training: “Why do we have to say the pledge of allegiance at school every day?”
Me: “Because they’re communists.”
Me: *Laughs* “Communists.”
Daughter: “What’s a communist?”
Me: “It’d take too long to explain. Let’s just say the pledge is a form of indoctrination.”
* Or: Fun with hyperbole, just wish it were more hyperbole and less close to reality.
