Well, if you got here via the bi-chromatic Universe and "Dez", thanks. Their being available means they can be rented out, so to say, to vendors. For example, they'd be great in promoting pastries. Kids love cookies, so do adults. As for that ascending numeral three, it came about by way of ignorance. More than once, I'd see that same numeral with wings or a halo or both even on this or that pickup truck. And, dumb me, I'd think they were like golden horse shoes or four-leaf clovers ... good luck charms. It wasn't until later, I found out those threes are meant to commemorate one posthumously charismatic NASCAR driver. To inspire all those signs of grief, that guy might've had the makings for ... well, that's likely better left to the intuition of NASCAR votaries.

constitutional allegiance, pledge for

Every so often, I succumb to a temptation that reasonable people are only right to consider pretentious, if not inanely flamboyant. Of course, that is only to be expected of a wild-eyed iconoclast cum "this gun for hire". Let's consider the
For a second there, I was thinking of "bagatelles pour nihilistes" for this very piece, which you dear Reader are now enjoying. But then, I determined that way too many readers such as yourself would consider it, well, irksome. Besides, it would take an excessive amount of time and space to justify.

Nonetheless, I think a brief hint as to the essence of nihilism is appropriate. Nihilism favors the immediate destruction of established cultural norms as the most powerful expedient to both ensure and propel communal resuscitation. In simpler terms, tossing out the old "tried and true" to make room for the new and necessary.

In this case, I hope the above chosen title for this title reminds readers of what school children recite at the beginning of their day. Here and now, I now propose a new recitation, specifically:

.... Before the flag of the United States of America, I freely pledge allegiance to that republic's Constitution, and to the democracy enshrined within our nation, one with valour, indivisible, and with liberty and justice for all. ....

The time for replacing the old Pledge of Allegiance with the above proposed Pledge for Constitutional Allegiance has come. Quite frankly, we owe this happenstance to our current president. True enough, he never had any intention to bring this about. But he did. By the way, the piece titled "'old glory' lost" deals in large measure with this happenstance.
