Viva La Migra! Part II

Friday, April 28, 2006
There are a couple of issues deserving of attention in regards to the recent immigration noise. First, the upcoming "boycott" to take place 1 May, 2006. While not very smart in its intent to begin with, the stated reason for the march is to "close" US cities.
"There will be 2 to 3 million people hitting the streets in Los Angeles alone. We're going to close down Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Tucson, Phoenix, Fresno," said Jorge Rodriguez, a union official who helped organize earlier rallies credited with rattling Congress as it weighs the issue.
What a goat-rope. How is this going to lend any sort of credibility to their already paltry argument? The bottom line is: if you are illegal, you are a criminal. If you seek to attain citizenship via legal channels, I have no problem with immigration. I am growing more and more tired of this charade and lessening what I would call an unusual socially liberal stance on immigration (in my case).

Secondly, the issue I would like to bring up is US national anthem; "The Star-Spangled Banner". It was written in 1814 by Francis Scott Key. He wrote the anthem after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry (Baltimore, MD) by British warships during the War of 1812. Because of some British dude, the Latino population thinks that it's OK to bastardize the anthem and spin it to fit their ignorance; that being not bothering to learn the language of their newly adopted home. That would be like me going to Germany and re-writing the Italian national anthem into English. It is a BS move by not only the British dummy producing it, but also of the dummies endorsing it and not even bothering to think about what it means.
"I think the national anthem ought to be sung in English and I think people who want to be a citizen of this country ought to learn English and they ought to learn to sing the national anthem in English."
Rarely will I quote the President, but this is nuts on accurate. Illegal immigrants and US national anthem-spinning idiots can kiss my ass.
