    How True!!!

    As a foreign born AMERICAN I totally agree, it took me many years to learn and finally fit in, an effort that one should put forth when CHOOSING to live in this great country. Remember it is their CHOICE. Nobody can change the rules to fit them, one should learn how to play by the rules...

    Subject: God Bless America...This says it perfectly. Must read

    Amen to this. How true it is!!!!

    Will we still be the Country of choice and still be America if we continue to make the changes forced on us by the people from other countries that came to live in America because it is the Country of Choice???????? Think about it........

    All I have to say is, when will they do something about MY RIGHTS? I celebrate Christmas, but because it isn't celebrated by everyone, we can no longer say Merry Christmas. Now it has to be Season's Greetings. It's not Christmas vacation, it's Winter Break. Isn't it amazing how this winter break ALWAYS occurs over the Christmas holiday?? We've gone so far the other way, bent over backwards to not offend anyone, that I am now being offended. But it seems that no one has a problem with that.

    This says it all!

    After hearing that the state of Florida changed its opinion and let a Muslim woman have her picture on her driver's license with her face covered this is an editorial written by an American citizen, published in a Tampa newspaper. He did quite a job; didn't he? Read on, please!

    IMMIGRANTS, NOT AMERICANS, MUST ADAPT. 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 made up 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, Portuguese, 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 take advantage of one other great American freedom, THE RIGHT TO LEAVE.

    If you agree -- pass this along; if you don't agree -- delete it!

    I figure if we all keep passing this to our friends (and enemies) it will also ,sooner or later get back to the complainers, lets all try, please

    Personally, I'm all in favor of allowing that woman to follow her faith. Anytime the police stop her for any suspected violation, all they have to do is take her down to the station, fingerprint her, and hold her until verification of the id comes back from where ever. Simple solution, eh?

    I have no problem with her having her ID photo taken with the Burqa on. But I would require that a bar-code be sewed to the front of it, on her forehead.

    Hey, here's an idea: we can play this religious-protection game too. Let's start a religion that requires us to carry rifles slung over our shoulders at all times. We'll cry "foul" anytime somebody challenges us on it. Surely if we can get enough followers, the government will have to listen.

    So I guess that idea doesn't work for white folks then, huh? You have to be some shade of brown to get special treatment in this country, but that's nothing new.
