Default Email about America

This is from an email I received



Quote:
Think about this: If you don't want to forward this for fear of offending someone-----YOU'RE PART OF THE PROBLEM !!!!

Subject: THIS WAS IN A TAMPA NEWSPAPER

W ill 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 we 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!


This is an editorial written by an
American citizen, published in a
Tampa, FL 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 idenitity. 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 s eriously 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.



It is Time for America to Speak up

I received this email a couple of times in the last year or so - the country in question has been England the first time and Australia the second - but you could tell it was adapted from an American original.

Personally speaking, the people I tend to blame are liberal extremists, the people who are so busy trying to look after 'minorities' that all they end up doing is offending the majority.

In my experience it is rarely the actual minorities in question that are actually complaining, griping or whatever - its basically do-gooders who think they know what is best for everyone.

Things that spring to mind are ridiculous laws being passed that make it illegal to refer to somewhere alot of accidents occur as a 'blackspot' as this has negative connotations for black people - ask any black guy or women what they think of this and they will say it is just as ridiculous as you think it is.

The upshot of all this, is not increased rights and freedoms - but rather a seething resentment towards the very people these laws and amendments are supposed to be helping.

This has led to a pretty strong right wing movement across mainland Europe - and extereme right wing parties have never been as popular as they currently are in the UK.

All I would ask people to do is not just rely on gut instinct when you hear ridiculous stories about 'accident blackspots' and the like - take a breath and think about who is really trying to push this stuff through.

It sure as sh*t ain't underpriveged Mexicans, Pakistani's, Indians or whatever.......

I blame the liberal extremists and the ACLU, which was founded by a card-carrying Communist. If we don't stop both of them, they will kill any structure the U.S.A. has.
