Destructoid Anthem (The Pledge)
I. There occurs a God
We are but humans
and surely doomed when
Destructoid begins to march
He's got a scanner
for good gaming manners
he may let you see his private robot parts
Don't be scared
He's a gentle god
don't be afraid
just try his website on
we've been inclined
to resist from time to time
no way we'll win
he's got lazers in his eyes
when it's time to join we'll raise his standard high
and shout Destructoid to you we pledge our lives
II. From his mouth we are (in)formed
Oh puny humans
you're so amusing
when you see I burn with epic win
I trade in awesome
and gaming gossip
while the others lie
or just pretend
Lift up your hands
present to me each blistered fist
Callused thumbs and aching fingers
true gamers never rest
let go of fear and anger
and be my, be my newest guest
I have known you since you were but a small child
wild with games and glee
was proud of every painful smile
even when you faced defeat
Every quarter your small hand dropped
or console proudly displayed
Every wish you made for one more life
it was to me you prayed
I have seen your long and lonely nights
battling last the boss
Even though you were fatigued
you would bare not one more loss
So I welcome you unto my domain
my good and faithful servant

Multi-year Partnership Announced with WWF to Conserve and Protect Freshwater Resources
The Coca-Cola Company has pledged to lead its global beverage operations, including those of its franchise bottlers, to replace the water it uses in its beverages and their production. The Company will focus its actions in three core areas:
1) reducing the water used to produce its beverages
2) recycling water used for beverage manufacturing processes
3) replenishing water in communities and nature.
The pledge was announced on June 5th, World Environment Day, at the annual meeting of WWF in Beijing, China, where the Company launched a multi-year partnership with WWF to conserve and protect freshwater resources. This $20 million (US) commitment from The Coca-Cola Company to WWF will be used to help conserve seven of the world's most important freshwater river basins, support more efficient water management in its operations and global supply chain, and reduce the Company's carbon footprint.

I Pledge Allegiance . . .The American Dream Comes True for 1,000 Immigrants Sworn In as U.S. Citizens at Walt Disney World Resort, July 4
Gala July 4th Ceremonies Included Performances by Gloria Estefan, Lee Greenwood
To streaking jets and daytime fireworks, more than 1,000 immigrants from dozens of countries realized their dream of becoming United States citizens Wednesday during a gala Fourth of July swearing-in at Walt Disney World Resort.
For the first time in its 35-year history, Main Street, U.S.A. at Disney's Magic Kingdom theme park was the backdrop as Disney Parks and Resorts and United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) jointly hosted a swearing-in ceremony on the forecourt of Cinderella Castle. The event was open to park guests who led the cheering for the celebrants.
Presided over by Director of USCIS Emilio Gonzalez, dreamers from more than 100 countries raised their right hand and took the Oath of Allegiance to become citizens. The ceremony featured the presentation of the colors, a keynote address by U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez, R-Fla., the national anthem performed by Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Gloria Estefan, the Oath of Allegiance and the Pledge of Allegiance. USCIS also recognized Estefan and her husband Emilio as outstanding "Americans by Choice" for being exemplary naturalized citizens.
Obama Takes on Question of Christian Faith

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Barack Obama is stepping up his effort to correct the misconception that he's a Muslim now that the presidential campaign has hit the Bible Belt.
At a rally to kick off a weeklong campaign for the South Carolina primary, Obama tried to set the record straight from an attack circulating widely on the Internet that is designed to play into prejudices against Muslims and fears of terrorism.
"I've been to the same church _ the same Christian church _ for almost 20 years," Obama said, stressing the word Christian and drawing cheers from the faithful in reply. "I was sworn in with my hand on the family Bible. Whenever I'm in the United States Senate, I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. So if you get some silly e-mail ... send it back to whoever sent it and tell them this is all crazy. Educate."
Obama is referring to a debunked chain e-mail circulating widely on the Internet that suggests he is hiding his Islamic roots and may be a terrorist in disguise. It says he was sworn into the Senate on the Quran and turns his back on the flag during the pledge.
There are some truths in the e-mail's details. Obama's middle name is Hussein. His father and stepfather were Muslim. And he spent part of his childhood in Indonesia, a largely Muslim country. But he attended secular and Catholic schools, not a radical madrassa.
His campaign has been pushing back against the false rumors all year. His aides decried an incorrect news report that Obama was educated in a Muslim madrassa and a section of his Web site is devoted to correct that and other false rumors circulating on the Internet.
But they are stepping up the effort now that the campaign has hit South Carolina and soon turns to other southern states where religion is so important to voters. The campaign distributed an open letter from seven Jewish senators this weekend condemning the attacks; aides are planning an event this week to respond directly to the e-mails; and campaign representatives blanketed South Carolina churches Sunday with literature that touted Obama's Christian faith.
One piece features photos of Obama praying with the words "COMMITTED CHRISTIAN" in large letters across the middle. It says Obama will be a president "guided by his Christian faith" and includes a quote from him saying, "I believe in the power of prayer."
A second piece, which like the first doesn't mention the Muslim rumor, includes photos of Obama with his family and a caption that says they are active members of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. It explains how as a young man Obama "felt a beckoning of the spirit and accepted Jesus Christ into his life."
Obama says he's going to fight harder against other mischaracterizations about his positions that he says are being perpetrated by rival Hillary Rodham Clinton and her husband, the former president.
"When I see Senator Clinton, President Clinton distort my words ... that is not a way to move the debate forward, that is not a way to help the American people," Obama said during his rally at the Columbia Convention Center. "I am not running for president just to become president, I'm running to help the American people. I'm not willing to say or do anything just to win an election."
