This may get me comments of being bigoted, racist, or hatemongering, but that's all right.  In today's America, that's what one gets for standing for what is right.  It's seems peculiar to me that when we expect immigrants other than Hispanics to obey the law in coming here and to learn our language, everything's alright.  But, when we expect Hispanics to do the same, it's racist and bigoted.  Wonder why?  Personally I don't have a problem with ANYONE immigrating here as long as they obey our laws in so doing and assimilate as generations of immigrants have before them.  Anyway, I wanted to share the names of the thirty-three Senators who voted AGAINST designating English as the official language of the United States.  This was sent to me in an e-mail with an open letter to these Senators:

33 Senators Voted Against English as America's Official Language June 6, 2007

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're 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.

Worse, 4 of you voting against English as America's official language
are presidential candidates: Senator Biden, Senator Clinton, Senator Dodd, and
Senator Obama.

Those 4 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 political 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 back-lash 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 America ; it's about self-serving politics... despicable at best.

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

Akaka (D-HI)

Bayh (D-IN)

Biden (D-DE) Wants to be President?

Bingaman (D-NM)

Boxer (D-CA)

Cantwell (D-WA)

Clinton (D-NY) Wants to be President?

Dayton (D-MN)

Dodd (D-CT) Wants to be President?

Domenici (R-NM) Coward, protecting his Senate seat...

Feingold (D-WI) Not unusual for him

Feinstein (D-CA)

Harkin (D-IA)

Inouye (D-HI)

Jeffords (I-VT)

Kennedy (D-MA)

Kerry (D-MA) Wanted to be President

Kohl (D-WI)

Lautenberg (D-NJ)

Leahy (D-VT)

Levin (D-MI)

Lieberman (D-CT) Disappointment here.....

Menendez (D-NJ)

Mikulski (D-MD)

Murray (D-WA)

Obama (D-IL) Wants to be President?

Reed (D-RI)

Reid (D-NV) Senate Majority Leader

Salazar (D-CO)

Sarbanes (D-MD)

Schumer (D-NY)

'Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage
morale, and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled or hanged.'

~ President Abraham Lincoln ' Amen ' "

I just thought I needed to share this with you so you would be better informed come election time. I really hope people in these Senators' districts will see this.  There's no way they can deny it or spin it because it's right there in black and white, no two ways about it.  These people need to be voted right out in the next election.

Hi Dirk- Even being Canadian- I want the official language to be English! Coming (legally) from a country where everything was demanded to be French and English- when only 1 province was French (where English in public is NOT allowed) really grated on a lot of the rest of the country's nerves! I'd hate to see the same here.  God Bless you- Excellent post as usual! Carolyn

Now I understand why Americans can't stand politicians. Those 33 senators are bonkers.

Right on, sister !   I am proud of you for speaking the real truth.   You won't believe what happened to me on Thanksgiving...
     I picked up a buddy so he could share Thanksgiving with my family and had to stop for gas.  When I came inside the station to pay for the gas, the young Muslim was speaking his gibberish on the phone instead of taking care of me.  I waited until I got back to my new Dodge truck and said in a loud voice as the Muslim was trying to get his gas pump started for another customer.   "ENGLISH ONLY !!" I yelled.  Then the pompous punk stated swearing a blue steak of everything vile at me as I drove away.   I just smiled. Oh heck-- it was  the devil in me and I was having  such fun.

Hi there!  Thanks for coming to visit my blog... wanted to come visit yours!  I don't like to do the political thing online, however, I will say, I loved the Lincoln quote.  He was an amazing man, and I love reading about him...

be well,

That is all quite true. Most of those same senators also voted for the 'Totlization Agreement of 2004' giving illegal aliens as well as legal aliens from Mexico, full social security benefits after only working in this country for 18 to 24 months. A few Republicans also agreed to this agreement, Bush and McCain. It does seem like we have politicians representing foriegn interests more then the public they are supposed to serve.
The corporations want illegals here for the cheap labor, the democrats want them here becuase they are a potentially huge political voting base and the unions want them here so they can expand thier shrinking labor union dues.
Nikita Kruchev stated many years ago, "the Soviet Union will never need to go to war with the US, they will fall from within."
So right he was!

This is an excellent entry and needs to be seen by Americans. I wasn't aware of this and I am appalled!  If a person chooses to live here then let them learn OUR language - I doubt if any other country is considering changing their language to suit the Americans abroad.  

Thanks for stopping by my journal - I appreciate your comment.  Nelishia is a wonderful person, I am so happy to have met her and I consider her a friend as well.  My best to you both.

First thing, no one can call you a racists fr your views, Hispanic is NOT a race! They are either Caucasion, Negro, Indian or mixed.
As for English being spoken here, it was good enough for the Poles, Italians, Greeks, Germans, ect. They learned English and were proud to be here. You never seen immigrants from other countries flying the flag of thier homeland like you do with Mexican legal and illegal immigrants.
This country was founded as a Chrsitian, English speaking country and it should stay that way.

May I add that the focus has been placed almost soley toward hispanics? How often do you here as much negativity about any other immigrant such as the Vietnamese or others coming here illegally? If laws are to be changed, they need to be changed for the right reasons. I do believe that racism has not became less of a problem, but has only changed it's focus onto a different nationality. -Missy
