THIS IS MY COUNTRY

Passed along by Jean D. Beard

I’m sorry, but after hearing they want to sing our National Anthem in Spanish - enough is enough!

Nowhere did they sing it in Italian, Japanese, Polish, Irish (Celtic), German, Portuguese, Greek, French, or any other languages because of immigration.

It was written in English and should be sung in English, word for word the way Francis Scott Key wrote it.

The news broadcasts even gave the translation - not even close.

Sorry if this offends anyone, but this is MY COUNTRY. If it is YOUR COUNTRY, SPEAK UP!

I am not against immigration, but Mexicans and other illegal entrants must come through the system like everyone else: Get a sponsor; have a place to lay your head, have a job, pay your taxes, live by the rules, and LEARN THE LANGUAGE - as all other immigrants have in times past, and GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Will we still be the country of choice and still be America if we continue to make the changes forced on us by people from other countries who come to live in America, the great majority of whom are not here legally? Think about it!

All we have to say is, “When will someone do something about MY rights?” We've gone so far the other way and bent over backwards so much to not offend anyone, that I am now being offended. But it seems that no one has a problem with that.

It is time for America to speak up and stop being passive about such an important problem!

Think about this: If you don't want to forward this for fear of offending someone, perhaps YOU are part of the problem!
