I'm sorry, but after hearing they want to sing OUR National Anthem in Spanish ... enough is Too much! NEVER did they sing it in Italian, Japanese, Polish, Irish-Celtic, German, Portuguese, Greek, French, or any other language because of immigration. It was written by Francis Scott Key and should be sung word for word the way it was written. The news broadcasts gave a translation that's NOT even close. Sorry if this offends anyone but this is my country. Let me make this perfectly clear! THIS IS MY COUNTRY! And, because I make this statement DOES NOT mean I'm against immigration!!! YOU ARE WELCOME HERE IN MY COUNTRY. Welcome to come through like everyone else has. Get a sponsor! Get a place to lay your head! Get a job! Live by OUR rules! Pay YOUR taxes! And LEARN THE LANGUAGE LIKE ALL OTHER IMMIGRANTS HAVE IN THE PAST!!! AND PLEASE DON'T DEMAND THAT WE HAND OVER OUR LIFETIME SAVINGS OF SOCIAL SECUR ITY FUNDS TO YOU TO MAKE UP FOR ''YOUR'' LOSSES. I recieved this in an e-mail and thought this would be a good way to get it out to as many folks as possible. So what do you think?

I don't hear in the national anthem them singing anything about the mexican or the french or Italian or the irish but the people in a whole we are american and speak English I will never sing the national anthem in another language and I will walk out of any place that plays it in spanish, I am sorry but I beleive it is great to know where you came from but remember where you are now, in an English speaking country surrounded by Americans.

I firmly agree. I think that in order to become a citizen you much be gainfully employeed for 5 years paying taxes and speak, read, and write the language.

Re: HDCouple4U2NV write: Sorry folks I am so tired of trying understand the darn maid cause she speaks NO english, I have lived in other countries and you are treated like dirt if you do not speak their language. So we need to adopt the same here, my daughter-in -law speaks english, she has only been here for 9 yrs.

I think its laziness. Had a friend new from Bangladesh. No english thickest accent. She worked hard and threw herself into conversations and mixing and wearing western fashion. Perfect english without even an accent in 2 years. But she wanted to get on and became a freelance chemical engineer troulbeshooter by the time she was 26. Never had a problem in other countries, people always prepared to speak english to me. and great hospitality invited into their families. Junie
