Last night my beloved changed the channel and said, "I put it on Ferguson, I know how you like him." I was a bit surprised, knowing he hates him. Perhaps hate is too strong a word. Dislikes. Anyway, he put on "The Late Late Show" for me. It was a nice treat since I haven’t been able to watch in a while.
And Craig announced that he was now officially an American citizen. So I would like to wish him my congratulations, and welcome. :) It was cool to see him take the oath of citizenship. (The link to the video is here).
After Ferguson, Dr. Phil comes on around these parts. Yeah, I watch him sometimes, mostly for the smug factor. Mine, not his. Despite all his vaunted degrees, I certainly don’t think he has any more common sense than I do. My husband does hate Dr. Phil, and so does my son. He hates most "grown-up" shows, since they take away from his game-console time and kid show time. But last night, since I had gone to help my beloved with something on his latest story, I didn’t notice the show change. My son did though. "Mooo-oommm! Dr. POO is on!"
Where does he come up with them? My son just cracks me up sometimes. :)
Oath of Allegiance for Naturalized Citizens
Oath of Allegiance
The oath of allegiance is:
"I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God."
In some cases, USCIS allows the oath to be taken without the clauses:
". . .that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by law. . ."
