politics and religion in my terminal?

I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America
and to the republic for which it stands,
one nation,
indivisible,
with liberty
and justice for all.
      -- Francis Bellamy, 1892



Really?  Really?  In my terminal?

I believe it is just a fortune.

There are lots of different fortunes.....rather than uninstall, I'm fairly certain you could find one that is appropriate. It can be rather "entertaining" in a bland terminal.  :)

Best regards.

It's more nationalistic than political, but I see what you mean. Especially if you're not an American.

Most likely .bashrc in your /home directory.

Thanks guys! /etc/bash/bashrc.d/local.bashrc did it for me. I opened  that file as root and commented out the last 3 lines
echo
fortune
echo
When i rebooted and opened terminal i see a simple prompt. Neat and tidy, just the way i like it.
