Post Something to think about...............

This is an Editorial written by an American citizen, published in a local
Newspaper.

I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some
individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, we
have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Americans.
However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the "politically
correct" crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism
was offending others.

I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is
seeking a better life by coming to America. Our population is almost
entirely composed of descendants of immigrants. However, there are a few
things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some
born here, need to understand.

This idea of America being a multicultural community has served only to
dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. As Americans, we have our
own culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle.

This culture has been developed over centuries of struggles, trials, and
victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom. We speak
ENGLISH, not Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other
language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the
language!

"In God We Trust" is our national motto. This is not some Christian, right
wing, political slogan. We adopted this motto because Christian men and
women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly
documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our
schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the
world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.

If Stars and Stripes offend you, or you don't like Uncle Sam, then you
should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet. We are
happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don't
care how you did things where you came from. This is OUR COUNTRY, our land,
and our lifestyle.

Our First Amendment gives every citizen the right to express his opinion and
we will allow you every opportunity to do so. But, once you are done
complaining, whining, and griping about our flag, our pledge, our national
motto, or our way of life, I highly encourage you to take advantage of one
other great American freedom, THE RIGHT TO LEAVE.

Amen. That's just a wonderful Christian attitude. I bet Jesus (the Jew!!!...would you propose we keep this non-american who didn't speak english outside our borders, too?)is just happy as hell to hear that the religion that bears his name is used to justify this article of understanding and love of all people. And who can't agree that our sovereignty is getting diluted. We didn't drive the injuns off this land for nuthin, by god. We certainly don't want any immigrants or forigners around here anymore.

Bill272,
Unfortunately you sound like one of those guys that runs around wearing a white sheet and pointy hat in the name of "GOD".

I agree that we should reduce the influx of refugees and immigrants comming into the country.
I agree also that if those people decide to prmenantly take up residence they should be required to speak and write our language.

Remember this, your ancesters were "forigners" too just like mine and almost everyone elses, unless they were Native American Indians the true first Americans.
My wife is decendant from pure blood American Indian whose tribe met the first colinists as they got off the boat. That's right, her people were standing on the beach watching as they rowed up.
My ancesters were members of the first colinists to settle in Virginia and New Jersey.
How about yours?
Becareful about your racist comments.

Iggy -- I'm not sure that Bill's comments were meant to be taken seriously (I hope... ).

Perhaps Bill could elaborate. Bill?
