Are We Sure That English Is America's Official Language?

I received this via e-mail. If this is true, we are in a lot of trouble.

Voted Against English as America’s Official Language

On June 6, 2007 33 Senators voted against English as America's official language.

On Wed. 6 June 2007 23:35:23 - Colonel Harry Riley, USA, Ret. wrote:


Your vote against an amendment to the immigration Bill 1348 to make English America's official language is astounding. On D-Day, no less, when we honor those that sacrificed in order to secure the bedrock, character and principles of America, I can only surmise your vote reflects a loyalty to illegal aliens. I don't much care where you come from. What your religion is. Whether you're black, white, or some other color, male or female, Democrat, Republican or Independent, But I do care when you are a United States Senator representing Citizens of America.... and vote against English as the official language of the United States.

Your vote reflects betrayal. Political Surrender. Violates your pledge of allegiance. Dishonors historical principle. Rejects patriotism. Borders on traitorous action and, in my opinion, makes you unfit to serve as a United States Senator. Impeachment, Recall, Or other appropriate action is warranted or worse.

Four of you voting against English as America's official language are presidential candidates: Senator Biden, Senator Clinton, Senator Dodd and Senator Obama.

Four Senators vying to lead America, but won't or don't have the courage to cast a vote in favor of 'English' as America's Official Language when 91% of American Citizens want English officially designated as our language.

This is the second time in the last several months this list of Senators have disgraced themselves as 'policital hacks'.....Unworthy as Senators and certainly unqualified to serve as President of the United States.

If America is as angry as I am, you will realize a backlash so stunning it will literally "rock you out of your panties"......... And preferably totally out of the United States Senate.

The entire immigration bill is a farce... Your action only confirms this really isn't about is about self-serving politics...... despicable at best. It has been said: 'Never argue with an idiot.... they'll drag you down to their level!"

The following Senators voted against making English the official language of America:

Akaka (D-HI)
Biden(D-DE) wants to be President
Clinton(D-NY)wants to be President
Dodd(D- MN)wants to be President
Domenici(R-NM)coward. Protecting his senate seat
Feingold(D-win)-not unusual for him
Kerry (D-MA)tried to be president
Lieberman(I-CT) disappointment here.....
Obama(D-IL) wants to be President)
Reid(D-NV) Senate Majority Leader

20 Requirements To Be A Good Democrat Today

This is another posting where I have no idea who the actual author is, but is very much right on the money as to the truth it portrays about the liberal viewpoint.



1. You have to be against Capital Punishment, but support Abortion on demand.

2. You have to believe that Businesses create oppression and Governments create prosperity.

3. You have to believe that Guns in the hands of law-abiding Americans are a bigger threat than U.S. Nuclear weapons technology in the hands of Chinese and North Korean communists.

4. You have to believe that there was no Art before Federal funding.

5. You have to believe that Global Temperatures are less affected by cyclical documented changes in the Earth's climate and more affected by soccer moms driving SUV's.

6. You have to believe that Gender roles are artificial but being Homosexual is natural.

7. You have to believe that Al Gore is actually an Expert on the Global Climate and he really did invent the Internet.

8. You have to believe that Hunters don't care about Nature, but loony activists who have never been outside of San Francisco do.

9. You have to believe that Self-Esteem is more important than actually doing something to earn it.

10. You have to believe the NRA is bad because it supports certain parts of the Constitution, while the ACLU is good because it supports certain parts of the Constitution.

11. You have to believe that Taxes are too low, but ATM fees are too high.

12. You have to believe that Margaret Sanger and Gloria Steinem are more important to American history than Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Edison, and A.G. Bell.

14. You have to believe that Hillary Clinton is actually normal and is a very nice person.

15. You have to believe that the only reason Socialism hasn't worked anywhere else is because the right people haven't been in charge.

16. You have to believe Conservatives telling the truth belong in jail, but a liar and a sex offender belonged in the White House.

17. You have to believe that Homosexual parades displaying drag, transvestites, and bestiality should be constitutionally protected, and manger scenes at Christmas should be illegal.

18. You have to believe that illegal Democrat Party funding by the Chinese Government is somehow in the best interest to the United States .

19. You have to believe that this Message is a part of a vast, right wing conspiracy.

Who Are You Calling "Colored Folks"?

Heads up to all white Americans. I don't know who wrote this piece but it exposes the hypocrisy of "whites" who call "blacks" "colored folks"

This was written by a black gentleman in Texas

And is so funny. What a great sense of humor

And creativity!!!

When I was born, I was BLACK,
When I grew up, I was BLACK ,
When I went in the sun, I stayed BLACK ,
When I got cold, I was BLACK ,
When I was scared, I was BLACK ,
When I was sick, I was BLACK ,
And when I die, I'll still be BLACK .

NOW, You "white" folks....

When you're born, you're PINK ,
When you grow-up, you're WHITE ,
When you go in the sun, you get RED ,
When you're cold, you turn BLUE ,
When you're scared, you're YELLOW ,
When you get sick, you're GREEN ,
When you bruise, you turn PURPLE ,
And when you die, you look GRAY .

So who y'all callin' "COLORED" folks?

Pork Politics As Usual

A good friend of mine sent this to me via e-mail. Whether you are Democrat or Republican, Liberal or Conservative this should matter to you.

"There are in [Congress] many very wealthy men - men who think nothing of spending a week's pay, or a dozen of them, for a dinner or a wine party when they have something to accomplish by it. ... Money with them is nothing but trash when it is to come out of the people. But it is the one great thing for which most of them are striving, and many of them sacrifice honor, integrity, and justice to obtain it." - Col. David Crockett, Representative - Tennessee


The top 10 senators misusing tax payer money:

1. Senator Thad Cochran of Mississippi (Republican) with 245 projects costing $892 million
2. Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska (Republican) with 150 projects costing $469 million
3. Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama (Republican) with 206 projects costing $465 million
4. Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana (Democrat) with 161 projects costing $459 million
5. Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia (Democrat) with 111 projects costing $386 million
6. Senator Daniel Inouye of Hawaii (Democrat) with 131 projects costing $386 million
7. Senator Patty Murray of Washington (Democrat) with 208 projects costing $328 million
8. Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa (Republican) with 154 projects costing $321 million
9. Senator Christopher Bond of Missouri (Republican) with 142 projects costing $310 million
10. Senator Thomas Harkin of Iowa (Republican) with 194 projects costing $303 million

There you have it folks! When politicians talk about responsible government spending, big government, small government, whatever... here's what they're really like. Only five politicians had zero earmarks:

Senator Thomas Coburn of Oklahoma (Republican)
Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina (Republican)
Senator Russell Feingold of Wisconsin (Democrat)
Senator John McCain of Arizona (Republican)
Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri (Democrat)

Those five names are your real fiscal conservatives, at least in the sense of not throwing your tax dollars around where they see fit. Cheers to Senator McCain, as he's the only one of the three competing to be the next President that didn't use our tax dollars on pet projects. For the other two:
Senator Hillary Clinton of New York (Democrat) with 281 projects costing $296 million
Senator Barack Obama of Illinois (Democrat) with 53 projects costing $97 million
