What The Hell Is Wrong With Us???

Think about it.

1)  A federal court (the 9th Circuit Court-the most liberal in the country) ruled yesterday that a northern California high school did not violate the constitutional rights of its students in 2010 when school officials made them turn their American flag T-shirts inside out on Cinco de Mayo or be sent home due to fears of racial violence. BTW, the Mexican kids were allowed to display the Mexican flag and did. The American kids with flags on their clothing were sent home under threat of suspension if they refused to turn their shirts inside out.

Cinco de Mayo

2)  No Spanish, No Job! The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing non-discrimination against job applicants or employees because of a person’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or genetic information (huh?).

But learn Spanish first

But learn Spanish first

This has NOT prevented many, many AMERICAN job seekers from being shut out of jobs unless they can speak Spanish.

3)  Para Español, marques el numero dos. You know what I think every time I hear this when I do my online banking or hear this recording many other places? I think FU*K you -learn English! This is America! It also grinds the hell out of me when I go into Home Depot and other stores and see bilingual signs.

Bilingual signsWhat the hell is the matter with us? Why do we cave and act like we do not have enough personal and national pride to require others in our country -legally or otherwise, to learn the language?

    I feel disheartened by this. It seems that there is a distinct culture in the United States that does not value America, the idea of America. I am not speaking of the immigrants. I am speaking of the crowd that does not like America. I am speaking of the crowd that does not recognize the free and safe country that America is. We are beginning to be ruled by people who are mentally crooked. They are not capable of comprehending the horrible tragedies that most of the people in the world live with. They are incapable of gratitued for The United States, perhaps for anything.
