America, Let's Play Fill-In-The-Blanks!

Millions of people love to play word games. Let's see if you can tell what is missing. We'll start off with the category of MUSIC FOR 100.
We wish you a Merry _________. We wish you a Merry _________. We wish you a Merry _________ and a Happy New Year!
How did you do? Okay, now for a harder one. The Hallelujah Chorus is also called Handel's M______.
Let's try a good old fashioned patriotic song now. G__ b____ America, land that I love. Stand beside her, and guide her thru the night with a light from above. From the mountains, to the prairies, to the oceans, white with foam G__ b____ America, my home sweet home. G__ b____ America, my home sweet home.
Let's try PLEDGES FOR 300. What is the missing word from the pledge below? Oh...there seems to be more than a word missing...why, it's practically vanishing.

"I p______ a__________ t__ t___ f____ o__ t___ U______ S_______ o__ A_______ a___ t__ t___ R________ f___ w_____ i__ s______, o___ n______u____ G___, i___________, w___ l______ a__ j______ f__ a__."

WOODBURY, Vt. - No one is sure when daily recitations of the Pledge of Allegiance fell by the wayside at Woodbury Elementary School. But efforts to restore them have erupted into a bitter dispute in this town of about 800 residents, with school officials blocking the exercise from classrooms over concerns that it holds children who don't participate up to scorn.
Game over! America, it's time to get serious about our rights and freedoms before the next generation is incapable of filling in the blanks. =============================================
Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a
redress of grievances.

Note: America's view is being dictated by a few. The moral majority needs to speak up before we are forced to shut up!

May God bless America...and may America deserve it!
