It's no coincidence that those cultures are also the one's who have enjoyed the most prosperity in this country...
That statement is spot on!

I can understand that...June 25 is the date that gave him the opportunity to serve the country he loves as a Marine.

Sorry Godfather. The USMC birthday is Nov. 10th. Celebrating it on any other day is a farse. If a Jewish person converts to christianity , it would be inapropriate to celebrate Christamas on the day he converted! Right? It's pretty cut and dry if you ask me.....

Why would it matter? Jesus was born in May, not December. The Catholic church parked the holiday on top of the Pagan Winter Solstice. People can celebrate whatever they want whenever they want. "Festivus for the rest of us".

I can even get on board with the different styles that some singers use. I personally dig Jimi Hendrix's version; what talent!

Now I don't want to get into a racial arguement, but there is something I don't understand. Why do black people who want to be equal with white people always seperate themselves from whites? I mean we are ALL americans so why do you need to sing a song to express how you feel as a black person living in america INSTEAD of the NATIONAL ANTHEM!?!

The same could be said about hispanics who have the cuban or mexican flag flying! You wanted to be here in the US right? Your country wasn't good enough for you so you came here. Why aren't you flying the American flag?

Before it's said or implied...... piss off I am not a bigot! I just call it like I see it! Don't like it? Take off your PC glasses and take a look for yourself.

I just want things to be equal and stop all the petty bickering back and forth and come together as Americans! 911 was a tragedy indeed, but I was proud of how we all came together and united as a counrty. Unfortunately that didn't last long.
Word!

What about the politicians that stood there with her while she sang it? They must have agreed with it because none of them walked off the stage. Or maybe they just didn't have the balls to do it. Either way they should be voted out to include the mayor.

Or maybe they decided one person trying to ruin the dignity of the moment was enough..?
