Coke’s ‘un-American’ Super Bowl ad sparks instant, intense outrage

While Pepsi chose to honor America’s Armed Forces with a special segment during the Super Bowl half time show, Coca Cola decided to celebrate the diversity of the country with an ad that sparked instant outrage on social media.

Coke’s description of the ad called, “It’s Beautiful,” read: “The only thing more beautiful than this country are the people who live here. Watch and discover why #AmericaIsBeautiful.”

The ad showed America’s multicultural and diverse citizens, including the first ad in Super Bowl history to feature a gay couple, going about their lives while the song “America the Beautiful” was being sung in different languages.

Reaction was fast and furious on both sides, with conservatives reminding that this is America where English is spoken, and liberals responding that there is no official language and everyone who says so is racist.

Perhaps tensions were high because one of the languages the very American, patriotic song was sung in was Arabic and the game was being played right across the river from where the Twin Towers came down on September 11, 2001.

Watch Super Bowl’s stunning rendition of US national anthem sang with dignity

    Great job Coke. I’m proud of my buddies who owns a small retail stores. They just got rid of your products. I got a few boxes of Cherry Coke and now there in my trash cans. Get rid of an un-American product. Time to stand up for our country. Thank you Pepsi. Keep up the good job!

    • Detfan1

      Pepsi’s logo is too close to Obama’s. What a dilemma for soft drink consumers!!

      • Loony_MN

        Pepsi had it first! Obama co-opted it.

        • Angry_vet

          he knew the winning side that’s for sure and now the association is being used to hurt them

        • Corpseman57

          I heard Indra Krishnamurthy Nooyi, CEO of PepsiCo, speak on MSNBC. I quit consuming PepsiCo products after listening to what she said. She is a good businesswoman, but she does not represent America’s interests.

          Now, it’s time for me to stop using Coke products.

          We don’t NEED anything either of these two companies produce.

          • Dominic De Falco

            Guess you will be drinking water all the time then! Almost every drink product on the market now is own by Coke or Pepsi or one of the subsidiaries.

          • William Robert Guerra

            not bottled water either – dasani is made by coke and auqafina is made by pepsi…we are screwed…

          • Dominic De Falco

            People will complain and still drink the product! It is no different than all my hypocrite so called Patriot friends who watched the superbowl even though the NFL is a major supporter for the DNC, a major supporter for Obamacare (Just not for their members) and the NFL is Anti-Gun proven by the fact that they willingly banned the Daniel Defense 2nd amendment commercial by request of the DNC. By watching, they all just supported the ones who support the destruction of the Constitution!

          • Jason Adams

            It was fox that didn’t allow the Daniel Defense ad. Do some research.

          • Tec Sg Beatty

            No, Jason, it was the NFL. Do your own OBJECTIVE research, parrot.

          • svrwx1

            No, FOX left it up to NFL. You need to do some research. Check with Daniel Defense.

          • theelviscerator

            wrong it was the NFL. dipshit

          • Dominic De Falco

            Wrong, Fox does the airing but the NFL approves or denies all commercials played during their air time!

          • disqus_pNhkHlXhCQ

            you are right. we need to quit thinking that we need coke, pepsi or any of the things that they sell and we need to find out what companies stand for and not support them. Too many people won’t though. So we will keep supporting anti american companies and keep being a part of ruining our country.

          • Dominic De Falco

            people are complacent and selfish, they want what they want even if it will have an effect on their own freedoms and liberties. They are like junkies that get destroyed by their own addiction!

            the choice is up to us…..I will not drink their products and that includes minute maid orange juice which I like, but there’s plenty of oj in the country.

          • FloridaBoyee

            How about Budweiser? They are All American as you can get!! Get a Bud!!

          • heroay

            Same as with Pepsi-Cokaine, i don’t waste time with that krap in DECADES.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Frances-Chute-Quinn/100002220220146 Frances Chute Quinn

            not all of us…I refused to watch the superbowl and I won’t drink coke….now I need to find out who owns Arizona iced tea. spring water and sliced lemons will do me fine!

            Arrowhead is far superior to Aquafina and Dasani… and its neither Coke or Pepsi.

          • palintologist

            You don’t have a spigot in the house?

          • RealityBites

            County water tastes like a swimming pool

          • sjerseydevil

            Sorry, but “City Water” is clorinated, just like swimming pools are. Well water in most of the country tastes fine.

          • RealityBites

            Used to have well water, it was horrible.

          • Tec Sg Beatty

            Move the outhouse DOWNSTREAM.

          • Bret

            Bad well… My is great, crystal clear, clean and water always very cool even in 100+ degree summers.

          • RealityBites

            Lucky!!!

          • jack

            need to get your arsenic water tested then

          • RealityBites

            I don’t have well water anymore, I have county water.

          • Toni Welnhofer

            Actually, well water is very good for you if you can get past that rotten egg smell of sulfur.

          • Dominic De Falco

            Our city water is not chlorinated, taste like dirt, has actual viewable dissolved solids in it and is loaded with calcium carbonate. It would plug your kidneys in a matter of months if you drank it all the time. People here have expensive water systems in their homes or they drink bottled water!

          • disqus_2Vt2rvVJSF

            Get a whole house carbon filter…then tap is okay.

          • Toni Welnhofer

            Yea, we have a spigot in the house. But I prefer not to drink chlorine water, thank you very much. Guess no more dasani!!

          • Dominic De Falco

            Spigot is fine in some city, counties and states but some not so much in others.

          • RobertNorwood

            I know, and Coke got caught out because in the beginning their labeling gave one the impression it came from a spring when it was actually coming from a tap in London’s East End and being filtered.

          • http://www.174ahc.org/ Dale Cordell

            Buy a plastic container and fill it from your tap or a trusted tap. I’m fortunate that I get my water directly from a private well.

          • koko

            Good for you Vet.

            Oh well, water is much healthier anyway!

          • jyrine

            Depends on where the water comes from;o)

          • Dominic De Falco

            That is the problem in the USA, People that look at something and go “Oh Well”. Liberal thinking!

            Loaded with sugar, chemicals and bone depleting phosphorous anyway

          • knighttemplar01

            If you drink water make sure it is not purified(that’s the residual waste water from washing the bottles, cans and equipment,with the crud filtered out). And verify where your spring water originates from.

            Florida Orange Juice!

          • Bret

            There is Soda Stream delicious cheaper and less pollution. And available in so many flavors. And then there are smaller local makers needing patronage, so…

          • K. Perez

            Yes. Water is good.

          • heroay

            Mmmm. distilled water, to clean my system from supermarket poisoned food. Orange juice. Tamarind drink. Home made Kombucha. Coconut Water. Hemp milk. Almond milk, Coconut milk. Mineral water. Pepsi-Cokaine intestinal fluid? NOT in DECADES.

          • cstrenio7

            Water is better for you.

          • http://www.174ahc.org/ Dale Cordell

            Health-wise, we’d ALL be better off not using anything with sugar in it. The proven health decline, from sugar use, is enormous. Read “Sugar Blues”. Some folks, esp. sugar companies, discounts it as false. Which makes it all the more believable.

          • Corpseman57

            We should prohibit the use of tax dollars to buy junk food.

          • sjerseydevil

            Most Sodas use Frucose as their sweetner, not sugar, and not good for you in large quanities either. I had a soda sweetened with real sugar recently, and the taste difference was remarkable.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Frances-Chute-Quinn/100002220220146 Frances Chute Quinn

            the caramel coloring in coke and pepsi is potentially cancer causing, the aspartame in diet coke and pepsi is poison in your system. forget both products, you will be better off!

          • disqus_2Vt2rvVJSF

            Gotta start mixing my rum with Florida orange juice! I already hate Pepsi and Pepsico (check out their holdings)…no more Coke! Hey coke, Popcorn Sutton says, “اللعنة عليك “

          • David Devine

            Got Milk?

          • Corpseman57

            Most milk and dairy products are krap now, too. Why are they adding carrageenan to it? We’re assured that is a safe product, but the more research I do on the processing of the sea weed, the worse it looks

            The U.S. food system is so BAD. We have plenty of food, but it is not good quality.

          • Toni Welnhofer

            We all need to learn how to grow our own, for those have property to do so. The time has come in this world that some really bad changes could take place if we dont stop it. And if it does go to the worst of it, you’ll be knowledged to grow and eat from your own gardens. Everyone should learn how to grow a hydroponic garden also, as you also grow veggies..but also have fresh fish to eat. Hey its better than starving. If America is taken down by this potus, these are skills that keep you & your Family alive.

          • Toni Welnhofer

            Also a Hydroponic garden can be grown indoors for those who live in apartments.

            Only obama and hitler have felt they needed their own logo. hitler’s was a swastika and obama’s will mean about the same by the time he’s finished with it.

          • Chloë ☠

            pretty sure almost every politician, or public figure for that matter, has a logo….. Romney for example – who I’m sure you voted for. Albeit President Obama might not be the best president but to compare him to Hitler is absolutely absurd.

          • disqus_pNhkHlXhCQ

            Chloe, Obama is close to becoming another hitler. He wants to control every aspects of our life and ruin our constitution. He thinks he is above having to answer to congress. It is sad but true. I feel really bad for our kids and their future with the way he wants things done.

        • Loony_MN

          I wasn’t really trying to endorse Pepsi. It’s just that they DID have their logo first.

          This administration has the bad habit of glomming on to successful and/or easily recognizable symbols that have taken YEARS to build their brand, goodwill, or whatever.

          The one that bothers me most, personally, is the one Minnesota has chosen for their version of ObamaCare (I think they call it MN Care). They’ve stolen Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox — folk art statues from Bemidji, MN that have been there since the 1930′s. They turn them into bumbling cartoons to sell this new abominable venture on TV and billboards. I was born in Bemidji and always felt Paul Bunyan and Babe were special and unique to Bemidji (at least in that particular statue form). They can’t seem to create anything unique. They just steal the success of others and cheapen it.

        • Dion Aryann Whitt

          But before it was red white and blue. They did change it Loony_MN.

          • Loony_MN

          • Detfan1

            Sodastream is not even close to being cheaper. On amazon, the unit costs $79.00 and the carbonater costs $28.85. Not even including those costs, a 750ml container of cola flavor only makes 17 12 oz cans, and costs $9.96. My threshold for soft drinks is 25 cents per can, or $3.00 per 12 pack, which price I can find several times a year on sale at various stores. That makes my cost for 17 cans of any flavor from any major bottler only $4.25, a 56% discount over Sodastream, not even factoring in the costs of refilling the carbonater and the initial $79.00 for the Sodastream unit.

          • disqus_pNhkHlXhCQ

            But no soda either way saves you more and helps with dentist bills too. Not to mention other health problems.

          • Detfan1

            . . .but I love my Dentist!! LOL. Of course you are right. I don’t mean to sound like I have a carbonated IV connected to me each day, but soda’s for me in moderation is fine.

          Who told you that?!

          Just kidding, but one of my joys in life are eating and drinking things in moderation that don’t top the health charts.

      • curmudgeon

        I agree. I switched to Coke after the Won adopted it as his logo instead of the cockroach or weasel he should have used. Looks like I’ll have to switch to some store brand or maybe better yet to Soda stream?

        • Detfan1

          See my post above in reply to Lee Workman regarding cost of SodaStream

        There’s always generic.

            Faygo?

          • Detfan1

            Well, of course!! I guess you haven’t lived fully yet! LOL. It is a regional bottling company in Michigan. There was a great tv ad when I was a kid, where three kids walked into a neighborhood store. When asked by the jolly guy behind the counter what they wanted, the first kid said, a Faygo! The guy responding what kind do you want? The first kid says what kind do you got. Counter guy proceeds to reel of the dozen or so flavors, with the last one being RedPop. The kid says RedPop. This repeats itself with the other two kids, with the man at the counter reeling off the flavors, and each kid choosing RedPop. I’m sure it was funnier than my description.

          • topmah

            Living in Detroit years ago (before it became a democrat wasteland), we kids loved our Faygo–one of our favorite commercials had the line, ‘Which way did he go?’ & the reply was ‘He went for Faygo!’

            I remember that!!! Oh, the days of past . . .

          • topmah

            We moved to Utica in the late 50′s, then to Detroit later, first on St. Clair St, then E. Canfield. I remember walking to the Fox theater with no fear at all but I doubt that would happen these days. I have many fond memories of the Detroit I knew then–Belle Isle, the Ambassador bridge, visiting Windsor–& years later, as an adult living back in the south, finally getting to Mackinac & seeing so many beautiful spots in the great state of Michigan.

          • Denise Bowen

            I remember that commercial. It’s funny, when someone brought me RedPop recently, knowing how much I liked it as a kid, I couldn’t drink it! Tastes sure do change as one matures.

        That song was to start trouble with the people in this Country. And CEO of Coke is Muslim and the ad was a stealth push for Amnesty by its Muslim CEO. You people need to learn the evil tricks that the Government is playing you for. Pepsi is no better. They place the Pledge to our Flag on their can and took God out of it. I got the information about Coke today. And it was very disrespectful to this Country to sing that song like that. If you would like a copy of the expose of Coca Cola give me your email and I will send a copy to you. America you need to wake up before you are place in slavery you never seen before.

      Not like the brazen
      giant of Greek fame,

      With conquering limbs
      astride from land to land;

      Here at our sea-washed,
      sunset gates shall stand

      A mighty woman with a
      torch, whose flame

      Is the imprisoned
      lightning, and her name

      Mother of Exiles. From
      her beacon-hand

      Glows world-wide
      welcome; her mild eyes command

      The air-bridged harbor
      that twin cities frame.

      “Keep ancient
      lands, your storied pomp!” cries she

      With silent lips.
      “Give me your tired, your poor,

      Your huddled masses
      yearning to breathe free,

      The wretched refuse of
      your teeming shore.

      Send these, the
      homeless, tempest-tost to me,

      I lift my lamp beside
      the golden door!”

    As a Reagan Conservative, I agreed that our military should be honored first in any American commercial. However, I do not think that singing that great song in other languages is an issue. We should be proud that America is being honored in other languages. What kind of a place would the world be without the United States, as my family is from Germany, a very, very dark one. Freedom and liberty is what makes this nation the greatest on this earth, bar none. I thank God, my family left Germany to come to the world’s greatest nation on earth. I would rather 46 years on this earth as an American, than 90 years anywhere else. God Bless America!!!!!

            Just so you know, my heritage is blackfoot indian, deutsch, and European! However, my country is America, as was established and written in English for both the CONSTITUTION AND THE BILL OF RIGHTS! Likewise, I was in the military for 16 years fighting to keep this great country free and our people safe. I wouldn’t think it asking too much not to slander an iconic song of our nation! When I was in France I spoke French, When in Germany I spoke deutsch, When in Japan I spoke Japanese. I had enough respect for other countries as to not slander them, their people, or their service members.

          • CEDUPZ

            slander? Please use a dictionary. And in your military just what “enemy ” did you protect us from? Ones that the U.S. created and brainwashed you into believing? Remember when Vietnam was the worse people in the world? people with short memorys , are scaarey sad..that all amounted to nothing! Made up enemy, by criminals in charge.

            CEDUPZ – speaking of using a dictionary, it should be “worst” not “worse” and Vietnam is a Country, not people. So the sentence SHOULD read; “Remember when Vietnam was the worst Country in the world?” Or you could have said; “Remember when the Vietnamese people were the worst people in the world?”

          • rhonan

            Worse, they forget that Ho Chi Minh begged Truman not to give Vietnam back to the French, so they could put the Vietnamese people back under the yoke of colonial exploitation, and offered an alliance between an independent Vietnam and the US. We could have ended up with the same sort of Vietnam we have today, with a mixed Socialist and Capitalist economy, without any of the death on both sides. Would have made for an interesting Cold War to have a Socialist nation in Asia allied with the US, and not the Soviet Union or China.

            Old man bush was, the dodger son was nothing, all kinds of deferments…criminal. Cheney also avoided it, but he knew how to want to send others. Clinton certainly did avoid, as do dozen of Congressmen and senators, they are all full of Bovine Doo doo

          • Tec Sg Beatty

            Vice President Cheney was MEDICALLY INELIGIBLE due to cardiovascular disease. The “dodger” wore the uniform. The closest thing Clinton had was his “wife” claiming that she tried to join the Marines, but she had optical and lesbian issues that prevented her form serving.

            Typical ignorant liberal, parroting what has been washed into their brains. Democrats fought emancipation of the slaves for 100 years. Instituted and maintained the Jim Crow laws in the south for 98 yrs and lest we forget you wore sheets and hoods and hung black people from trees and you have the utmost gall to say if it weren’t for Republicans there would still be slavery. HA omg…I bet you really believe Lincoln was a Democrat don’t you? Omfg…what utter MORONS!!!!

          • koko

            you are right cherry boy, the South did want to keep slavery even extend it toothe Missouri Compromise. Lincoln did want to end slavery but keep in place the norms of the time: no vote, return of the slaves to their owners, and no amalgamation of the races. The Republican Party used to be a worthy party, and one manyAmericans were and are proud of. Unfortunately the party has been derailed by Southerners who want to take the party back to antebellum South. The last true Republican that I can identify with was Ge. Eisenhower. I do know that Pres. Lincoln belonged to the Whig Party, present day Republican Party. Thank you for the history lesson but I stand by my comments

          One of those young women was singing in Keres, which her Pueblo ancestors were speaking generations before the first white face gazed upon the North American continent.

        • artinthewild

          I might add that when my daughter visited Europe, everytime she went from one country to another she had to have a passport. Yet these countries are saying we should let the people from Mexico come in without a passport – also don’t ever get left in Mexico without a passport.

I can speak both my tongues. I can give my children beautiful names from my home country (not that American names aren’t nice, but I prefer names from my home country). So you see, I really do have the best of both worlds.

    • Noah Dawson

      It might not have been that big of deal that it was sung in multiple languages if it had not been a political stand point plug. As subtle as it might be they are saying what is beautiful about America is the liberal agenda. No need to assimilate to the country in which you want to be in but rather it is fine to diversify and divide the nation. Homosexuality is once again being celebrated. Muslims are again being celebrated and are being shown as peaceful. Im surprised they didnt also have a woman having an abortion in the video. They didnt have the military in the video because they care one ounce about the military but to make it look like they have military members support in their diluting of American culture, morals, freedoms, and liberties. This ad is anti freedom in my point of view. It is the ad that shows you dont have the freedom to have your own opinion outside of the liberal bias. You dont have the freedom to see things for what they really are but instead must walk around blindly. Its the ad that shows you must wash your countries great history and culture away to make room for others history and culture who have left their countries for ours because of its freedoms and liberties. But ironically these people have seen the greatness of our country and they would rather try and turn our country into the ones they left instead of assimilate to ours because they still think the country they left is better than ours in all ways and hold no alligence to this great nation. They would rather have us assimilate to their culture whether it be block by block, city by city, or state by state. This is by no means a personal attack. It sounds like you and your family love this country very much. I started as a simple response and turned into a rant. Again i am not trying to attack you personally and i dont want you to think that i am. But i am also sure that while you may not agree with me you can see or have seen what i have said and those are the people i am talking about.

          Communism is punishing all for the sins of the few, like the drug war.

      • Doug Jaffray

        So highlighting diversity in this country is promoting the liberal agenda? First off there is no official language here just a language that a majority of people speak. Second if they’re trying to showcase diversity then it would make perfect sense to sing an american patriotic tune t a bunch of different languages spoken here by the many ethnicities and cultures. Conservatives need to take the stick out of their asses and see other people live in this country besides them, and no matter how sure you are that you’re right there’s always the chance of being wrong so you should open your mind a bit.

        • dskancer19

          So, now you are attempting to change history? When people first arrived through Ellis Island and began their journey to become American citizens – at no time was there an “agreement” that they would retain the language of a foreign country. They would learn to speak English and by the time they tested for their citizenship they would know our language, our Constitution and know our Bill of Rights. They would know that being American represented American values and moral under a Christian nation – not under a communist, socialist, dictatorship, Muslim, Buddhist, or Islamist belief that they had escaped from.
          Being an American one has the right to learn a foreign language, but not force it upon the nation as we speak English here. Yes, English is the official language of this nation and always has been. As just as strong, it is a Christian nation, one that turns her back upon all forms of evil. Whether we are Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, we stand together as a nation of believers in God. We bow down to no false gods and never will.

            We have no “official” language in this nation. COPE with that. We speak all different languages, children learn other languages in school, in other words, become EDUCATED. Also go to any large city and visit the ethnic neighborhoods, if a cultural isolationists like yourself should dare. Also we are a SECULAR nation, not run by any religion or deity but OPEN to all.

          • marburyvsmadison

            Attempting to change history? Where?

            Your view of history seems very, very parochial and uninformed. Neither the English language nor belief in any sort of God is required to be a good American.

            Lastly, we’re not a Christian nation (we’re a majority Christian nation statistically; big difference), but since you mention Jews in the same thought, you might want to know that, generally speaking, Jews have a very different concept of “belief” in God than do Christians. Many, many Jews – even some Rabbis – are agnostic;

          • Fatima

            So you can only be a true American if you’re Christian or Jewish? As a Muslim, I bow down before the same God as you, my Hindu friends bow down before their Gods, and my atheist and agnostic friends bow down before no God at all. Are we not as American as you?

          • lukedouglas

            @dskancer19 FYI, Muslim’s worship the God of Abraham, who is the God of Christians and Jews. Read your Bible.

            Oh…by the way…God himself told Abraham about the beginning of the Muslim nations.

            ​Genesis 17:20
            – And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him,
            and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve
            princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.

            So when you blast the Muslim faith, you basically are blasting God. Now does that mean there are not people who use the Muslim faith to commit wrongdoings? Absolutely not! Radical Muslims are using their faith to support their ‘idiotic’ radical beliefs.

            But, then, Christians, with the sanction of the Catholic Church, did the same thing back in the Middle Ages when they conducted the many Crusades to cleanse the earth of Muslems, who they deemed as anti-God. Today we would call it genocide as we did during WWII with the German attempt to exterminate the Jews, which the Catholic Church was a silent supporter as they had an underground anti-Judaism movement within the church leadership at that time.

            So none of us are perfect and we all fall short of God, whether your Christian, Jewish or Muslim. Now as far as the other faiths, your statement about Buddhists is way off target as they are a very, peaceful religion. Communist, socialist, and dictatorship are not religions but political organizations, which I don’t agree with. :)

            And the Jews are not totally innocent in their conduct against Muslims as are Muslims conduct towards Jews but those are deep seeded hatreds that span centuries.

            Mankind can be extremely cruel which we never seem to learn from the past.

        • 68gto

          Look around. You don’t have to look any further than this topic. Apparently, the pro-american (English language ) group is the majority. The funny thing about living in a Democracy, Majority rules. That’s how it works. Some don’t like the death penalty in their state, some want marijuana legalized in their state, some want coke to not air unpatriotic ads. Whatever it is, the minority will have to put up with it or find another country. Democracy is all about the majority and whoever gets the most votes. The rest will have to suck it up.

          • Paul Atkins

            America is not a Democracy, we are a Republic a Nation of laws. We are all protected by the Constitution. Yet our government thinks they can do what ever they want because we as Americans seem to be letting them get away with it. More people need to get involved and stop having the mentality that government can do what ever they want and that our votes do not count. That is what they want people to believe. Too many people get so offended when you try to tall politics but it is one of the most important things that effect everything we do.

          • RealityBites

            That’s why we’re a REPUBLIC, not a democracy!!! Geez did you sleep through American government class????

        • Noah Dawson

          Obviously you didnt read past what you wanted to read and you saw what you wanted to see. But ill put it this way so maybe youll better understand. First i stated it wouldnt have been that big of a deal if it wasnt a liberal agenda plug and then i pointed out my opinion on the commercial as a whole to highlight my point on why i didnt find it acceptable. The problem is not diversity. The problem is the liberal agenda pushing differences and calling it diversity. The problem is liberal hypocrisy. Prime examples, the left founded the KKK, Black Panther Party, and La Raza but the right is racist. The left stating that it is racist and wrong to want people immigrating to this country to assimilate. Its wrong to want to be able to communicate with them by speaking a common language if its them that has to learn the language most commonly spoken in the country. But its ok to say that Americans not only should but need to learn spanish in order to make the lives easier for the illegal immirgrants coming from mexico. Because lets be honest the vast majority of legal immirgrants no matter where they come from are more than willing to learn english and assimilate. They are hard working people who make a difference in this country and pride themselves on being Americans. The latter are vast majority self entilted racist victims who dont want to assimilate but think we should have to assimilate to them. For the left its all about pushing differences. Your black, white, mexican, gay, etc. Thats how these racist organizations on the left have popped up. By the left pushing the differences of each group and using the victim card. The left calls this diversity. The left doesnt understand that to have diversity you dont have to point out differences in people. You cant have a racist without them focusing in on race. Thats the lefts focus. A conservative can tell you that they dont like illegal immigration and a person on the left will call you a racist for not liking Mexicans as if you had just said that you didnt like Mexicans, as if all illegal immigrants are Mexican so you must have been talking about them. The lefts gay agenda that if you dont promote it that your a gay bashing homophobe. Homosexuals are the ones that keep bringing up the issue, why? Because nobody cares. They will bring it up and if you dont agree it doesnt matter if you spent the whole night talking to them having a good time your now a gay basher and a piece of shite. Its not the homosexuals who need to be rewired to understand no one gives a shite its the other person who needs to be rewired to celebrate that persons gayness whenever the opportunity arises. Liberal mindset, my sister is on the left and she happens to be bi. I told her a story about being at a bar (regular bar) and a guy tried to run his happened up my leg to my groin while i was sitting on a bar stool. She questioned me on why i got upset. It didnt matter to her that thats sexual assualt. To her i should have been fine with it and took it as a compliment. You have the lefts muslim agenda that is only there because the left is vastly anti Christian. They try and paint muslims as the most peaceful people on the planet. It doesnt matter what crazy thing they say or how many people they kill. They do it as a way to attack Christians. The left also has the majority of atheist who also hate Christians. The hypocrisy in this case if you dont see it is that while the left has the majority of the atheist in this country that the left would promote islam. But they do it as a way to as i stated before attack Christians because muslims dont like Christians either, the enemy of my enemy is my friend rule. But to also say that their not anti religious, see we support religious diversity but these radical Christians who want to pray and want to push their radical beliefs by wearing crosses around their necks have to go.

          I guess that’s why, when the US Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the Mayflower Charter, the Gettysburg Address, and other famous and not-so-famous — in fact EVERY — government document was written in English. Gosh, for all of these years, I never knew that the Government Language of the USA WASN’T English. My foreign-born friend, who has been worrying about the citizenship test, doesn’t have to worry, seeing how English isn’t the Government’s Language in the USA….

        • quercus454

          Language is the one common denominator that unifies a country. A country that embraces diversity and ethnic individualism over assimilation usually has conflict and internal struggles for power. The US avoided much of this in the past by controlling the numbers of people coming in. Those people were forced to assimilate because we didn’t cater to their cultures/languages and didn’t allow their numbers to overwhelm our society. Thanks to the 1965 immigration law, we have exponentially increased the numbers of legal immigrants, failed at enforcement of all immigration laws and allowed millions of illegals to cross or stay. At the same time we cater to them in their home language, and by their sheer numbers they have taken over entire towns and cities. In California there are areas which resemble Mexico or South America more then this country. Many places you will not hear a word of English spoken or find a sign written in anything but Spanish.
          This in it self many seem harmless. But what happens when they want to separate, or do not want to enforce American laws? What happens when the age of sexual consent of women is 12 years, animal cruelty is normal, female genitalia mutilation or honor killings are accepted?
          The reason for much of our history we were able to become a melting pot was because – one we took in people whose cultures and values were more like our own. Two because we limited the numbers. Three because we didn’t cater to them. They had to learn English and assimilate to survive.

        Homosexuality is NORMAL, people are BORN with their orientation. Read a BOOK. Muslims have the same rights as every other religion under the peskiest amendment in the entire Constitution: THE FIRST. Despite stereotypes they are not all “terrorists” nor are all terrorists Muslims. Now before you go playing the 9/11 card, remember that people from 93 (count ‘em NINETY THREE) nations were killed that day. People from all over the world, not just Americans. People have not given up their culture in this nation but the multicultural environment is not hurting anyone except those who still can’t understand that this world has come together thanks to technology and the ease of travel.

        • Noah Dawson

          I never said anything about homosexuality being normal or not so where are you getting that from. But if you really want to debate that point with me then i will. I also never said anything about muslims not having anything equal rights so again what are you talking about? Did you even read what i wrote?

        • Noah Dawson

          Ok i have a little more time now to devote to you. 1) If people were born homosexual then you would not have people that turn gay. You would say oh they didnt turn gay they were always gay and just didnt know it. Would you say the same for someone who turns straight? Would it be logical to say that a straight man would be engaged in homosexual activity if he was straight? I think the more logical thing would be is that its a choice. Everyone is different and what may seem like a hard choice for you is easy for others. Myself ive always liked the color blue ever since i could remember. Would it be logical to say that i was born liking blue? If homosexuals are born homosexual how can you fault pedophiles? Or fault people who like animals or inanimate objects or the dead? You couldnt say it was wrong I mean if they are born that way that would be hypocritical. You also couldnt say that they werent born that way because that throws doubt on homosexuals being born homosexual. I would like to know what book you read that enlightened you. So please give me the name and author. It better be unbias and objective if you want me to take you seriously. 2) i never said that muslims dont deserve rights. What i said was that the left ie you paints muslims in a light as if the are the most peaceful on the planet even with mounds of evidence that they are not. The left makes up what is called a moderate muslim. Pure fiction. These so called moderate muslims themselves admitted that if allah told them to stone someone to death no matter the reason they would. Islam is the most murderous, hate filled, inhumane religion. You say their not all like that, why because you met one and they seemed nice? Forget that the quran tells them when they are outnumbered to smile in the face of the enemy and be curtious but hate them in your heart. Does somehow 93 other countries citizens dying that day somehow make it better in your mind? I dont understand why you would bring that number into play like it helps your argument one iota. What does it matter from what country the victims of islam come from. What do what me to subtract them from American deaths. Over 2000 people died that day but wait you need to subtract the deaths from the other 93 countries so its really not as bad as you are saying it is. 3) You dont even know what multicultural is. Just like you dont know what diversity is. You think multicultural means that America has Italians coming over and caring on as if they were in Italy or Mexicans coming over and caring on as if they were in Mexico. Multicultural is a melting pot, like America. America is already multicultural. Thats why we eat lasagna and mexican food and celebrate cinco de mayo(which they dont even celebrate in Mexico). Its why we have the music scene that we do and so on. America takes bits and pieces and weaves it into the fabric of its culture which why America is really so unique. But the left wants to celebrate not multiculture but individual culture and that is why we have hispanic heritage month, we have black history month, we have gay pride month, etc. Its not about togetherness with the left even with as much as they try and say it is. Its about division. Its about trying to tear down America as it stands today and turn it into a segregated atheist liberal dream land. Thats why they attack Christianity, they attack the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. Thats why they segregate there constituents etc. I know what your thinking they dont segregate their constituents. If you have a black neighborhood who do they vote for? The left. If you have a hispanic neighborhood who do the vote for? The left. White neighborhoods? The left. Now you might have some white neighborhoods that vote for the right but usually thats all thats in the town anyway. But when it comes to city living thats how it breaks down. The most ethnically diverse neighborhoods on majority will vote right. Unless you go to a college campus but thats the lefts brain washing centers. The left hates Americas culture and morals. If you hate something why wouldnt you fight to destroy it? The left is the only party to have single race political groups. La Raza (Hispanic), New Black Panther Party (Black), KKK (White), CAIR (Muslim). The right has the Tea Party (Diverse). The left also has AACP (Atheist), NAACP (Blacks), GLAAD (LGBT) PETA (confirmed Animal rapers), The Feminist, The Abortionist, The Socialist, The Communist, and The Marxist. Thats quite the Axis of Evil. Im telling you the left gets a Pedophile group and a Mass Shooter group then the left will just be pure HELL.

          • RealityBites

            Ok when did you decide to be straight? Did you have to make a conscious decision or was it just there? If it was just there it also stands to reason that a gay person would not have to make the same conscious decision either. Also someone has to combat the theocrat wannabes on the right. The left is more useful in keeping this nation from being the theocracy the right wants than you will ever realize

          • Noah Dawson

            How many girls out there experiment with other girls? Its become a normal thing. At one point or another a girl decides whether she prefers men or women. Some on the other hand prefer both. Men do not experiment with other men at least in America openly because it is still considered taboo. Also if a man did he would run the risk of being considered gay. A man that is straight doesnt want to be labeled gay. In Iraq they say boys are for pleasure women are for babies. Dont tell me im wrong about it because i heard it from the horses mouth while i was in iraq. What are you going to say, you cant be gay and be muslim? You consider that gay, you would also consider that pedophilia, but thats you not them. Also have you never heard of a hypocrite? You should your on the left, just take a look around you, your surrounded by them.You would also try and have me believe that a man who would mutilate his body to be turned into a woman was just born that way but you will totally rule out that this person just might have a mental health issue. But someone who is bi polar now thats a mental health issue. Why wouldnt it stand to reason that they were born that way so there is nothing to fix? LGB thats called choice, the T thats a mental illness.
            Why are you so afraid of Religion? The left doesnt have to fight anything. The Religious especially the Christians are starting to have to fight the left. The left is wanting the nation to be moral less atheist. Hows that a good thing? You are right the left is very good at destroying family values, morals, personal responsibility, self respect, humility, honor, integrity, drive, and initiative. I just dont see how you consider that useful.

          • RealityBites

            What in heaven’s name are you talking about???? I don’t know one person who has ever “experimented” with the same sex. LGB is perfectly natural, go study the rest of kingdom animalia. Homosexuality is prevalent in more than just humans. Its been documented in dolphins and penguins that I can remember off the top of my head. Also you’re confusing the far left with the mainstream. Common mistake.

          • Noah Dawson

            To say you have never heard of girls experimenting with each other is just pure out denial. Also to take your cues for whats normal from the animal kingdom is silly. So throwing feces is normal as well then since monkeys do it. Or how about eating feces since dogs, cows, and gorillas do it? As humans we are supposed to be more evolved than animals but yet you want to look towards something less evolved than yourself on whether or not something is ok to do? Maybe confusing the far left with the mainstream is so common mistake because they are so closely related?

          • RealityBites

            Kingdom animalia, study

          • Noah Dawson

            Ill take a look at it, this seems to be the one subject of all the ones you complained about in my comments that you seem the most sure about. You seem to dodge everything else. Even in your last post you commented on how LGB was normal but made no mention of T in LGBT. You totally glossed over why you mentioned or felt the need to mention that 93 other countries lost people on 9/11. It seems like your doing a left tactic of making outrageous claims and statements and then when your called on them you just ignore it and deflect to something else. But ill check out this study. Again it also better be objective and unbias. Also since you put it as a second mention the study also better not be taking the social norms of animals as justification from humans to also participate.

          • RealityBites

            Ok, i just went online and too be honest i thought you were going to present an actual study. I know what the animal kingdom is. You cant use the animal kingdom as a defense. Especially not sexually. A lot of animals use humping as domination. Do humans hump each other to dominate one another? Do you think that is acceptable? The majority of animals do not get sexual gratification from sex. So explain to me how homosexuality and animal domination is the same and how animal domination gives credence to homosexuality. I understand its hard hear the truth. I understand its hard to finally realize that what you thought you knew was really wrong. Reagan said it best “its not that liberals dont know anything, its that they know so much that isnt so”. “REALITY BITES ” huh

          • Fatima

            There has never been any doubt in my mind that gay people were born that way. Growing up in Yemen, I saw gay people suffering horribly because of who they loved, and I realized that no one would ever choose to be ostracized, choose to be imprisoned, choose to be killed.

          • Noah Dawson

            Your a muslim? Nope i dont believe it. Especially not when your saying homosexuals were born that way. Look at Christianity, people are not born Christian. They choose to love the Lord even in the face of death look at people who choose to leave Islam at the price of death. So yes it has been seen time and time again that people will do what they want at any cost. Have you ever seen a smoker? They will brave the worst weather just to have a cigarette. They werent born smoking and people who dont smoke do not understand why they wouldnt just quite but they are addicted. As God states he will give you over to your sins. Its a persons choice to turn to sin and its their responsibilty to turn away from it.

            That doesnt prove your a muslim. But im sure you think of yourself as one. Its called an analogy get over it. Also mohammed wasnt a prophet but a con artist. Hows that for offensive.

          • Fatima

            Yes it does, that is the Muslim deceleration of faith.
            But it is a false analogy, because being gay harms no one, but smoking most certainly does.
            Did you know Mohammed (peace be upon him) personally?
            Also, could you please try to use better grammar? English isn’t my first language, and I know the difference between “they’re” “there” and “their”

          • Noah Dawson

            It is not a false analogy. You can recognize when i use the wrong there but you cant grasp a simple analogy? I could explain it but i feel it would take to long. You dont seem to have a high level of comprehension. Saying that does not make you a muslim just as me saying it doesnt make me a muslim. Do you know mohammed personally? I know what muhammed taught. I know he taught that the world was flat which of course he did because he never spoke to God. I know that he also admits that he was afraid that he was talking to the devil, and so on. Answer me this as a woman what is your Heaven like? Are you even promised a spot in Heaven if you foll allahs instruction to the T?

          • Fatima

            Oh really? Try me. In no universe does being gay=smoking.
            Of course, you have to say it, and believe it, which I do.
            When did Mohammed teach that?
            And I have no idea what heaven is like, because I have never been there.

          • Noah Dawson

            Stop talking about the gay smoking thing your making yourself look dumb by not understanding something so simple. Since you dont know ill tell you the Heaven awaiting you. First off it doesnt matter what you do allah can still cast you into Hell. Its his choice. So if he likes you it doesnt matter if you did anything for him, and if he doesnt off to Hell you go. Now females in heaven. You will have the pleasure of standing alone in a corner while your husband defiles virgins until he decides to come and enjoy you. Once hes done back to the corner you go. Thats your Heaven. You better hope allah isnt God or the best part of eternity for you is right now. Ask you imam, kind of surprised since your of age to birth children you have never asked the question before.

          • Fatima

            If it’s so simple, explain it to me.
            Well, seeing as he’s God, he can do whatever he wants, but the God I know and love would never do that.
            Ya know, I always pictured it as me and my friends hanging out while my husband plays video games (just like a typical Saturday night heeheehee) but such a wonderful Islamic scholar as yourself has shown me the truth. (=sarcasm).
            Actually, I have asked my Imam (since, as you pointed out, it’d be hard for me to go 26 yrs without asking) and he said that the splendor of heaven cannot be portrayed in the words of mankind,

          • Noah Dawson

            You god would do a lot of things which means you dont know him very well. Im not an islamic scholar the things im saying are coming out of the mouths of your islamic scholars Shabir Ally, so save your sarcasm for him and realize you wont be watching your husband play video games but devirginize little girls (heeheehee). The vision of Heaben can be portrayed into words as it has in islamic text which im sure your imam very well knows but probably does not want to tell you. Because it will not be nice for you. But anyway im done with this conversation. If you write back ill read it but i wont respond. I suggest to you if your such a big muslim then you might want to get to know your religion a little better. I dont know why me a non muslim can tell you things about islam that you didnt know. Maybe then you will realize the irony of calling islam the religion of peace. It should be called the religion of hate , destruction, pedophila , rape, murder, genocide, malice, hypocrisy, deception, the devil, allah, satan, lucifer.

          • Fatima

            Wow, you’re questioning MY relationship with God? How nice of you.
            And I’ve read Islamic texts for the love of God, and while their description is lovely, I’m sure it does no justice to the real thing.
            I also love how you apparently think my husband is a pedophile. Trust me, he’d rather play grand theft auto 24/7 than rape little girls.
            And you haven’t taught me anything about Islam. You’ve shown your own naivety, but that’s a whole other thing…
            When did I say that Islam is a religion of peace? It is a religion of faith, of submitting to a higher power, which can lead to peace, but can also lead to the things you listed.
            I hope and pray that my little girl will grow up to live in a world where she is judged not by her religion or ethnicity, but by her love and kindness.

          • RealityBites

            Biology must not be your favorite subject huh???

          • Fatima

            I don’t believe you’ve ever met a moderate Muslim. I am one, and I would never, ever stone someone to death, because of an itty bitty little thing called empathy.

          • Noah Dawson

            Your right i havent maybe thats why i said they dont exist. Secondly that reference was made about a convention held by muslims to prove that there was such a thing as a moderate muslim. The moderator ask the question and that was the response he got from the muslim crowd who all attested that they were moderate muslims. I have also yet to see muslim empathy. How about non muslims in deerborn michigan who were pelted by moderate muslims with rocks, crates signs, well with anything they could get their hands on. How about Sharia law that so called moderate muslims want to implement. If a muslim agrees with sharia law they are no longer moderate. If a muslim agrees with the quran they are no longer moderate. If a muslim agrees with the hadiths or the sura they are no longer moderate. You are not a muslim. You are a heretic. Unless your following allahs (the deceiver) lead and trying to deceive me then yeah your muslim. Satan is also to the deceiver imagine that. They cant both be the deceiver unless, they are one and the same. Isnt it amazing that many of the Devils and Allahs names are the same. Its almost like hes trying tell you who he is and muslims still dont see it, or just dont care. Take your pick

          • Fatima

            First of all, Allah means “God” in Arabic. So when you call him Satan, you are also calling the Jewish and Christian God Satan.
            Can you show me proof of the violence you speak of? It’s not that I don’t believe you, it’s just that I can’t see any of my “moderate” brothers and sisters condoning that type of behavior.
            Also, gee thanks for telling my that I’m not Muslim, and it is impossible for me to have empathy. The baby girl marinating in my womb must be making my brain wonky, to the point that I don’t know anything about myself.
            Finally, I really and truly doubt you have ever met a Muslim. God bless.

          • Noah Dawson

            I know what Allah means. God has a son, Jesus. Allah has no son, so they are not the same. So no im not calling God Satan. I could show you proof but whats thats going to do? You will just say “well their not moderate muslims”. Just because your pregnant doesnt mean you have empathy. Maybe you can use that when muslim mothers stop sending their children to blow themsleves up. You can doubt that ive ever meet a muslim before, i doubt your a moderate muslim. Lastly you can keep allahs blessing you deserve it.

          • Fatima

            Well considering the fact that Arab Christians use “Allah” to refer to God, it’s pretty obvious that they are one and the same. And us Muslims also revere Jesus as a prophet, just not the son of God.
            All righty, I will just assume you are making it up. I don’t think that’s what you want.
            I actually think that the thought of being a mother in just a few short months is making me more empathetic, but I’ve always been pretty darn empathetic in the first place.
            Are you saying that I am going to raise my little girl to be a suicide bomber?? That is most certainly not true of me, and of the vast majority of other Muslim mommies in the world.
            If you had met a Muslim, you would not group them all together in such a fashion.
            Oh, thank you. Although I will think of you in my prayers, and ask our God to open you heart.

          • Noah Dawson

            If God has a son and your god doesnt then how are the same? Their not. It should be pretty simple to understand. I also know that muslims think of Jesus as a prophet. What are you assuming im making up? I never said that you were going to raise your daughter to be a suicide bomber. But it is to say that dont speak of muslim empathy through the reference of a child while muslim mothers still celebrate the death of their children. I judge muslims off of the quran, hadiths, and the sura. Again i have no need for allah. He will be cast into the lake of fire. He cant even save himself how could he save me?

          • Fatima

            You worship the same God as the Jews, do you not? Yet, they do not see Jesus as the son of God.
            I’m not going to take what you said about anti-Muslim violence on faith.
            I could say the same thing about the small majority of Christian mothers who raise their children on “white power,” who’s children then go on shooting sprees. Yet, I don’t. Why do you think that is?
            You want me to judge you off the Bible?
            Allah does no need saving. He is my God, and your God as well.

          • Noah Dawson

            First white power was started by the left in which im sure your part of. Also you may not have noticed all the mass shootings you have heard about are also from the left who are largely atheist. Do you think that it gives Allah some sort of legitimacy that the Jews dont believe Jesus is the son of God? Why are you going off what the Jews believe to find basis for allah? Muslims believe that the Jewish and Christian religions have been corrupted and can not be trusted.yes you can judge me off of the Bible. Allah will burn the pits of Hell for all eternity he cannot be saved. He is not my God, if he is yours then you will join him.

          • Fatima

            um, no. White power groups are groups on the extreme right spectrum.
            And almost all mass shootings are committed by people with mental disorders.This caused the shooting, not religion or politics.
            Yes, if Jews can worship your God, and not believe Jesus is His son, then so can we.
            So all 1.6 billion Muslims in the world believe that?
            All right, so can I rightly assume that you follow a bunch of really crazy rules, and are itching for God to come back and slaughter lots of people?
            Better burning than being with you.

          • Noah Dawson

            Once again you have no idea what your talking about. The kkk was founded by who? Democrats. Segregation? Democrats. Fought to keep slavery? You guessed it, Democrats. Nooowww its mental illness uh? Again everyone you have heard about on the news have been democrats. So whatever. Do you not see how stupid it is to say that Christianity and Judaism have no credence because they have both been corrupted and then go back to one of them to use it as a validator? Christians dont want God to come back to kill people but to save. What crazy rules are you talking about. Ever thought about why the world is going to hell in a hand basket and that number 1.6 billion.

    • TruthandFreedom

      I didn’t fight for America the Beautiful for 16 years to have coke slander this nation with being Obama’s butt buddy and making this song a joke. For Obama this is a multicultural nation with no religion other than Islam, and no official language. English is the language of America, and all those immigrants that refuse to accept that fact should be deported! FOX should be ashamed for even airing that crap!

      • graybuffalo

        Obama has already said in one of his speeches that “America is no longer a Christian nation.” Well, I guess the moron doesn’t know that America is STILL 83% Christian, and the brutal Islam makes up about 3% (too much in my book).

      • Doug Jaffray

        Majority does not equal official. English is one of the many languages of america, and christianity and islam make up only 2 of the religions practiced. There is no law that says youhave to know english therefore its not our official language. Secondly, why do you christians show only hate for everyone else that is different than you? Isn’t it in your religion to tolerate all?

          And good for the Dutch dude. I hope that if/when he visits America, he can speak ENGLISH. I’ve been overseas several times, and made the effort to speak the local language on at least a rudimentary scale out of courtesy. I certainly did NOT demand that my hosts, in their own land, SPEAK MY NATIVE LANGUAGE, like WAY TOO MANY “IMMIGRANTS” DO IN AMERICA.

        No, CEDUPZ–it’s not ‘cus it’s been drilled into (our) brain for all these years’, it’s because no other country in the history of the world has matched it, whether you want to admit that or not. In less than 200 years, it became known as the ‘greatest nation on earth’ & it wasn’t because the folks who came here from other countries behaved as they do today–it was because they came here to be citizens of a new home, not to bring THEIR OLD home here. Now, God help us, that’s just what they’ve been & are doing. Notice how we’ve gone downhill? Multiculturalism has done nothing but destroy & minimize all that we once stood for.

        • CEDUPZ

          Bullshit! We are devolving in only 233 years or so. the English controlled the world, the Spaniards did, the Portuguese, The Romans and Greeks before them…Egypt before them probably….the propaganda machine in the us is surpassing Goebbels best efforts. Yes, Germans Italians brought with them their culture, as did Swedes, Fins, Norwegians etc. Germans was the biggest group of immigrants in the 1800′s. They brought brains and ability…free thinkers, not today’s dolts rahrahrah for any reason. What enemy did you defend us from. The ones that where our allies, with our stuff, until we turn on THEM!?

        • sickandtired

        CEDPUTZ – REALLY? Germany invented everything we use? The only thing our highways have in common with Germany’s is that they’re made out of concrete. Their bedding is deeper, and that’s why they last so much longer. Here, the unions won’t allow advanced technology like that as it would do away with planned obsolescence, and “never ending” repair/replacement” contracts.
        Without Germany, we wouldn’t have Neo-Nazis, sauerkraut and Zyklon-B.
        I will hand to the Bosch, though; they are great at engineering mechanical devices. Of course, they don’t have the “free-thinking” mindset of independent Americans. They are much more regimented, and controlled by archaic ideals of worshipping the State. They have a well-documented history of slavish obedience to “government”, something that has NEVER sat well amongst the American people.

Cus theywhere SUPERIOR back then, how biased are you? the holocaust was horrible, I had an uncle die in it, at one of the camps…..he fell out of the guard tower.

Never got stranded EVER in one last one only went 316,000 miles of pure fun, Jetta VR6 GLX assy in MExico, flawless reliable fun, parts from Germany U.SA.

            And the rest of the world appreciates that. We invented guerilla warfare, or at least modified it from what we learned from Native Americans to make it more effective. The Germans also pioneered nuclear physics, and that helped very much in defeating Japan.
            We perfected the process for vulcanizing rubber, developed the “assembly line” process for mass manufacturing, established modern “quality control” and mass production” techniques, and, with the help of John Moses Browning, inventing the most commonly used firearms technology in history.
            Thanks to German ex-patriots like Werner von Braun, we have AMERICAN footprints on the moon; HIS knowledge, OUR technological capabilities.
            Oh, BTW, the ancient Greeks actually developed the concepts of analytical medicine and modern pharmacology.

            So just how old is your horse?
            And what the Hell does it matter to you what I drive, since I’M THE ONE PAYING FOR IT?
            Secondly, I wouldn’t take a G(overnment) M(otors) vehicle as a gift, after our Dear Leader took OUR money, and gave it AND the company to the union(s), then left us holding the bag for BILLIONS.
            For the record, YouWhoCan’tDealWithReality, I drive a 19 year old F-250 4×4 with a 7.3L Turbo Diesel with approximately 300,000 well-maintained miles on it. I feel safer in this vehicle than any German vehicle short of their main battle tank, and I can see no reason why I won’t get AT LEAST 1/2 million miles out of it.
            I made 1 payment on it (bought it for cash) and don’t/didn’t have to pay any interest, either.
            Your point (aside from the one on your head) IS?

          • RealityBites

            My horse will be 14 in June. Also the way you make fun of the Europeans for being so technologically advanced, hate to tell you but if you ever heaven forbid get into a wreck with that thing, you’re gonna be wishing for European safety features. The Volvo has a curtain that comes across the side so glass from the windows don’t hit the people in the car, also it is well know that European cars have roll cages which make the car hold up a lot better in any rollover crash. My mom had a VW Fox years ago that she ended up wrecking because of a problem with the steering they didn’t know about (VW later issued a recall when they became aware of the problem) but the car rolled 3 or 4 times, and held up thanks to the roll cage. The firemen had to use the jaws of life to get her out, but she was unhurt from the crash. Still got taken to the hospital to be checked out but was released after a very short time. Anyway the doctors said that if she hadn’t had that roll cage things would have been a lot worse. Now if the GM cars that more often than not are not gonna last more than a few years don’t have the safety features of European cars, I don’t want it. Sounds like your truck is one of the likely few American made vehicles that have actually lasted. Exception to the rule that’s for sure

          • Tec Sg Beatty

            Had a 1968 Pontiac Catalina that I got 328,000 miles out of; I did have to put a cam, lifters, and head gaskets in it.
            Had a 1975 Dodge Coronet 500 that I got over 290,000 out of; a 1989 Dodge Omni that I sold at 219,000 and it ran for several years more; a 1995 Mercury Mystique that I gave to my ex, and it had over 250,000 (excellent shape); a 1966 Chevrolet Impala w/327 that I traded when it had over 250,000 (excellent shape); 1998 Chevrolet S-10 that had over 250,000 on it………
            I could name several more, but my point is: if you properly maintain almost any vehicle, you’ll get long life out of them.

          • RealityBites

            I agree with that. My dad’s 1999 Jetta has close to 500,000 miles on it, my 2002 Jetta only has 132,000 roughly. Both are well maintained cars, the local mechanic does a terrific job keeping our cars running. He says that’s why his prices are so reasonable is because keeping the car running is the only thing he cares about. My car just needed the catalytic converter fixed, my mechanic told me to go to a place on Main St that does that kind of thing, since he doesn’t. Well they turned out to be the cheapest in town! In other words, smart move

      But I bet your German ancestors assimilated into America by learning English and abiding by American law. Not so with the immigrants of today – they keep their own language and in the case of Muslims, their own law. AND, I would bet that your German ancestors also immigrated LEGALLY! Correct?

      • NDXUFan

        Yes, my ancestors immigrated legally. My Dad’s grandfather was in the Army of the Kaiser(1870). My Dad’s Dad, my grandfather was a Lieutenant in the Fire Department. My area is mostly of German descent and in those days, most of the street names were in German, not English. Yet, in WWI, all of the nine members of that city’s council, each of German descent, changed the street names from German to English. There were German newspapers in the city. Many households did speak German and English, along with going to school to learn English. In addition, in WWI, they discontinued teaching German in this area’s schools. Bad, bad idea, because teaching German would help the United States defeat Germany and the Kaiser, as the Navajo Code talkers were instrumental in defeat the Imperial Military of Japan. Hitler was a madman and a looney tune. My family and the people of this area absolutely detest him. On my old street, there were three people who lived under the Fuherer, their reviews on him were not very positive, most Germans were NOT Nazis.
        Yes, my relatives immigrated legally and became part of the American family. Yet, it was not a fast process as some would have you believe, most things in life do not work that way.

        Well, I’m Muslim, and I speak English as well as Arabic, which I speak with mu husband and family. Not really sure what you mean by my “own laws”, I follow American laws…

        • graybuffalo

          If you are Muslim, why are you in America? Everything about America you despise: capitalism, Christianity, freedom, our belief systems, our laws, etc. I think I know why you are here…your Imams have openly stated that you have no intention of assimilating into our society. They have said that your global agenda is total domination by Islam. Correct? You are on a long-term mission to work your way into our government system, imposing Sharia Law wherever you can, and utlimately strike us from within. Obama would help your cause by disarming us all, correct? That is not going to happen and if you think you can take over America, you have another think a-coming! If you abide by the Qur’an, which I have read, you believe it is permissible – it not expected – to lie to an infidel. Since I am not Muslim, you consider me an infidel and, according to the teachings of Allah, you believe all infidels are to be killed if they do not convert to Islam. Correct? Well, since we cannot believe you because you lie to infidels, this infidel won’t be able to decipher the truth from the lies you spew. I believe there is no such thing as a “moderate” Muslim.

In the 1800′s German immigrants formed all kinds of companys, and today they are being ruined in this world’s greatest country. Why are bankers in the worlds greatest country allowed to fleece the world, with minimal consequences. But if one smokes weed, they go to prison, in this GREAT country.

      I am a foreign in America, I love this country for what stand, and what stand is NOT multiculturalism, yes, this Nation was founded in the ideal of FREEDOM, from other tyrannical governments, so the people persecuted by any reason can find a place where they can call HOME. Many people in this country has miss through time what truly AMERICA means. It’s not the land, but it’s people, people from all over with many cultures, to one place, where culture and language will be unify as one…FROM MANY…ONE… that means, from many people of other nations one people. AMERICANS! to which have it’s own values, principles, culture and history, all of this build and created by those that came from other lands, who understood, this premises.
      If America is to speak the language of others ( I have mine, English is my second ) America will stop being America to be just what other nations are, to loose the things that has make Her UNIQUE.
      As European I can tell you, that Europe been older than 2000 years has accomplish allot less than the USA in 237 years, because they were conquer by other languages and cultures…and they have not learn.
      Today in the REPUBLIC of USA, people want to do like Europeans, it’s the very reason that we have the problems we have in this country, if we don’t defend, protect and fight for the American culture, heritage, language, America will be take over and with that, their freedoms, other legal immigrants, persecuted people, will have no place to go, because America is becoming the very thing they scape from… multiculturalism does that…
      DO NOT BE NICE, as the progressives want you to be, nice means ” ignorant and stupid” it’s use in politics to stop and silence people, by worrying about others people’s emotions, AMERICANS shouldn’t be babysitters of others emotions. BE PROUD TO BE AMERICAN…and yet, what American don’t have official language like some people said, ENGLISH is the original language. No country have official language, stipulate by the law of the country, it’s to know that those countries have their language, as Germany, German, Spain Castellan, France, French, etc, the USA is English, only progressives want to make it the country with the language of each nation, to divide the USA by nationalities, that was not the intent. It’s call WE THE PEOPLE as one people, one culture, one language, one history, the history that many from different Nations has place together, the ancestors of Americans from today knew that, and they were proud to be Americans, not Italian American, German or anything else. I’M A FOREIGNER, I love this country and I personally fight to ensure that the American culture stand, my grand kids, don’t learn that they are Spaniard-Americans, they didn’t born in my country, they are AMERICANS, and if anyone ask them about their culture or race, is simple, AMERICANS/TEXANS and their race, red, white and blue… we must stand up for this rights, and we must fight for the American heritage, that happen to be FREEDOM, if we not and allow other cultures to take over, FREEDOM will be over as well.

      God bless all of you and the Republic of the United States of AMERICA…!!!!!! STAND UP, SPEAK UP AND NEVER SURRENDER, America is lost, so human kind of the world is lost too.

          You can’t compare – Spanish to Spain and English to America. America first was native and then Spanish, French, British, etc. As an example, Spanish has been spoken in America way before English. So shut it!

          • 68gto

            And the country that whipped the French and Spanish and took their land ….. WAS? GB (english) — To the victor goes way of life.

          • Samsroid

            You are measuring the victory as an absolute without realizing you cannot conquer the heart of those defeated. That is why the culture, language and traditions have lasted and are now flourishing again, too many to contain now. This country forever will be multilingual. Deal with it!

          • 68gto

            You are missing the point. All nations are multilingual. Even in Germany all school children learn English. I myself speak 3 languages. My comment was an absolute though and true.

            The point is that there is a Common language, English which is used to conduct official Government business. If there were no common language our ability to have a functioning Government or Military would cease.

          • Samsroid

            The Common language is English, I agree… But to get all bent over about a commercial in a multiplicity of languages is just immature and a huge sign of insecurity by the majority-stablsihment that now sees the rest of the population as a threat to their Status Quo. Well, guess what, things change…. all empires fall… America will be no different. The once victors will now be just another national group, like the rest…. the old privileges, gone and replaced my new emerging ones. Language is just one of the many ways this is being reflected in society.

          • jyrine

            “the majority-establishment” as you put it does not see “the rest of the population as a threat”. That insidious thought pattern has been introduced by the current administration.

          • Samsroid

            The same Constitution that is now obsolete, being stepped on by Congress, the NSA, et al. Yeah, what a joke!

          • TruthandFreedom

            The Constitution is not what is obsolete, it has been disregarded by criminals in government. Thus, all these politicians that have refused their oaths in my eyes should be removed from office for TREASON.

          Spanish has been declared the official language of Spain by the Spanish government. English has never been declared the official language of the us. Spain also recognizes 4 other languages as co- official languages.

          • RE Hafner

            The Constitution and Bill of Rights are in English. That pretty well sums it up.

            I was making a point – and all you jackasses are replying to this – you all know what i mean…spanish is spoken in spain, franch is spoken in french, russian is spoken in russia, polish is spoken in poland….i won’t go on but the point is that english is spoken in America. When you move to and live in one of those countries, you learn their language, you don’t require them to learn yours. America is an English Speaking Nation whether by law or not so just stop being stupid and argumentative just cause you’re a liberal and can’t help it….

          • Claire Garcia

            I wonder what language the English speak or if it’s been “declared” by the U.K. as the official language? I do know that English is spoken in many countries. My, my…such a dilemma! Like our fearless leader, Obummer, said “Maybe I (we) should just pack up and leave?”

          • jyrine

            EliseR, even after I looked it up and posted it here you are saying the exact opposite of what I wrote. “On May 20, 2006 the Senate voted to designate English the official language of the United States.”

        • durabo

          Castilian, and Catalonian, and Euskara, and Galician, etc. Spain is multilingual

            As are most countries.

        • Paranormal Skeptic

          Spain has, by law, declared Castillian Spanish is it’s official language.

            How CAN you say English is not our native language DA? What language

            RIGHT NOW? ENGLISH FOOL

          • Paranormal Skeptic

            I know at least 3 American channels, where English is not spoken.

            And, the term you are looking for is “lingua franca”. It’s the closest to official as we get for a language.

            There is nothing saying a law cannot be written in say, Spanish, or French. It’s just not generally done.

            Así que, sólo porque usted se rodea en un idioma, no hace que la lengua oficial, sólo te hace menos educación que la mayoría del mundo.

          • Today22011

            You come to earn an income, live with citizens and do business here, then speak the language of the adopted country. All other language is secondary.

            I’m sorry, you have yet to demonstrate how English is the official language of the US… At best, it’s just the “lingua franca”.

      • Tiki Steve

        President Theodore Roosevelt stated in 1907, “We have room for but one language in this country, and that is the English language, for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans, of American nationality, and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding house.”

        • EliseR

          Theodore Roosevelt saying this does not make anything an OFFICIAL language. A government sanctioned language would be against the principles of the first amendment.

          • 68gto

            And tell us again — what language was the First Amendment written in?

          • EliseR

            That does not mean everyone living under the constitution is required to speak English. Freedom of speech is not limited to English.

          • 68gto

            Maybe it does — Obama says all his EO’s are Official

          • Paranormal Skeptic

            Because his executive orders, on how the executive branch is ran ARE official, and carry the force of law for the EXECUTIVE branch, which he is in charge of.

            Much like the senatorial rules made up by the Senate Majority Leader ARE official, and the force of law for the senate.

          • Angry_vet

            and they are written in ENGLISH

          • 68gto

            My point! So did Teddy Roosevelt use an EO when making the statement of English being the one language of this country? Perhaps it is official.

          • EliseR

            No — a President actually has to have a EO written and on record. TR was stating his opinion, not creating law.

          • cojar

            Hope our next President is a Republican who solves the issue of English as our official language by executive order. Without congressional legislation, it would become the law of the land.

          • Paranormal Skeptic

            The next POTUS could make English the official language used by the executive branch.

          • EliseR

            An Executive Order only applies to legislation on governmental business. POTUS can issue an EO saying the government will only use English (it says a lot that no one has every done this), but he/she can’t stipulate that English has to be used anywhere other than in government business. Private businesses could still make ads in whatever language they want, and individuals could still speak (or sing) in whatever language they want.

          • ConradCA

            The problem is that Tyrant Obama is violating the constitution by making recess appointments when the Senate is not in recess and modifying law with executive orders. Now is the time for all citizens to fight the Tyrannt, fight to win back our freedom.

            Yes. Everything a President utters is not automatically law.

          • cutitall

            To say that making English the official language would be against the principles of the first amendment is ignorant. I am against useless laws, but in this case since there seems to be so many agendas on this issue, we should just go ahead and make English officially our language by creating that law.

        The First Amendment (along with the rest), Constitution and Declaration of Independence. All written in ENGLISH! Need I say more? So if you can’t read English, those documents obviously don’t apply to you.

      • durabo

        EliseR, try to move to México and demand to be kowtowed-to in English, and see what happens! Our language, through usage, is Standard American English, grandfathered into our society. It came close to being Dutch, BTW, but English prevailed. Of course, within two generations, our descendants will have to press 2 for English, as the invaders crossing the southern border are breeding like rats (on OUR tax dollars, BTW).

        • Paranormal Skeptic

          Non-comparable. Mexico has codified Spanish as their official language.

          We have not done so here in the US, and it’s been officially stated by the founding fathers that declaring an official language would have been an anathema to democracy.

          • durabo

            Common usage dictates custom. The concept will be meaningless within two more generations, since English will be practically bred out of our system by the invaders.

          • cojar

            Show me where you read that lying garbage!

      • 68gto

        All Primary and Secondary schools teach English as a Requirement in order to graduate.
        All Colleges and Universities require English and ENglish composition as a core requirement to Graduate. Any other language is secondary.
        All testing services to include PSAT, SAT, ACT, GRE, MCAT use English as their test criteria.
        All business transpired in Congress, White House correspondence and Supreme Court Judiciary is done in English.

        So — yes I would say English IS our official language whether there is a paper somewhere or not that says sol.

        • Paranormal Skeptic

      • Scott Coleman

        Hmm, the fact that the Articles of Confederation, the Constitution, Bill of Rights are in English. Our Founding Fathers Spoke English and throughout our nation’s history people from all different languages and lands came to speak English as a way of becoming American. To do no less means they are here to NOT be American. My love is Hungarian, growing up in a communist country that is thankfully free now and she didn’t know any English before she came here in 2000. She speaks wonderful English now so speaking English can be done. These “multiculturalists” just refuse. They do not wish to be American, just mooch on America. And Amnesty is the answer for Illegals when my lady is here legally this whole time since 2000, working for the same company at the same locale since 2006?

          • cojar

            My grandparents are Cherokee. The natives lost the land to English speakers. They still retain their culture and some of their land. No other nation in the world has afforded conquered people these luxuries. When the Muslims conquered another land, they beheaded and raped the inhabitants and forced them into slavery (Jizyra tax). Stop using native Americans as a ploy to give our country to strangers and foreigners. If anything is to be learned from the native Americans it is the lesson to never share your land and bread with foreigners.

      • 68gto

        I agree — as long as its sung in English.

        All immigrants throughout history; whether they be the Irish speaking Gaelic, French, German, Russian, Jew, Scandanavian languages … and on and on. All came here for a better life and ALL learned English and were assimilated into an English society. So, now more recently we have to kowtow to the Mexicans and Muslims and they don’t have to assimilate? No wonder this country is failing.

        Right… The Germans assimilated right in when they came here. I mean, it’s not like we still have German-speaking communties here in the US, like the Amish, who hesitate to deal with English.

        And, it’s not like the Irish settled right in, and made neighborhoods into “Little Ireland”, and the same with the Poles… Or, the Italians. No city in the US has a “Polish district”, or “Irish area”, or “Italian area”, because everyone melted right in and assimilated, amirite?

    Freedom Isn’t Free!! We Paid For It!! American Veterans!!

    As those served ignore their responsibility and most of the issues, DeJa-Vu all over again:
    Congress thus Country, Undermine Veterans! Writing/Talking related to the VA, using us Veterans as their magnetic ribbons phony ‘patriotism’! Free wars and not Sacrificing for the decades of results of those wars and for decades while ignoring many of the issues of the Veterans of!!
    There’s only one branch of Government, Federal and States, consistently doing for not only us Veterans’ but also the Military personal and their Families, and without the control of the Countries purse strings, combining the Cabinet agencies abilities to help where possible with their budgets and charged responsibilities. That’s the whole Executive branch under President Obama. Doing what Congress, State legislatures, in passing feel patriotic support bills that are unfunded, and the people represented by them and served by the Military refuse to do, Sacrifice, especially the wealthy!

    The Abandoning of the missions and the purposes of, along with the once
    again promises to the Afghan people, first time was after the
    Afghan/Soviet long war, quickly after 9/11, with the Lives still being lost, those serving still being wounded!!! Giving rise to, with the rhetoric from within, not a victory over, and spread of al Qaeda type ideology criminal terrorism!!!

    The Cost of War, All Costs, the Responsibility of Those Served

    “12 years also is a long time. We now have a lifetime responsibility
    to a generation of service members, veterans and their families.” Dr. Jonathan Woodson 11 Sep. 2013: ‘With 9/11 Came Lifetime Responsibility’

    Where were the ‘offsets’ to federal spending as the rubber stamping, more then the off the books wars with no-bid contracts, was going on and claiming ‘patriotism’ for?

    Decades, and wars of, of under funding the VA. With these two recent
    wars little was done for the Veterans of as well as the Military
    personal, i.e. Walter Reed as one example, and their Families, in the
    first years of both under the previous executive branch and those
    congresses. Rubber stamped war costs, off the books and on the countries
    credit card with no bid private contracts, including building an
    expensive private merc army! That’s not adding in all the other rubber
    stamped costs of the bush administration policy wants, especially in the
    first six years of!

    Rachel Maddow: “We got a huge round of tax cuts in
    this country a few weeks before 9/11. Once 9/11 happened and we invaded
    Afghanistan, we kept the tax cuts anyway.
    How did we think we were going to pay for that war? Did we think it was
    free?

    Then, when we started a second simultaneous war in another country, we
    gave ourselves a second huge round of tax cuts. After that second war
    started. The wars, I guess, we thought would be free, don`t worry about
    it, civilians. Go about your business.” 23 May 2013

    “If military action is worth our troops’ blood, it should be worth
    our treasure, too” “not just in the abstract, but in the form of a
    specific ante by every American.” -Andrew Rosenthal 10 Feb. 2013

    David (CBS News) Martin: “Then there’s the financial cost. To date,
    the Pentagon has spent more than $500 billion on the war in Afghanistan.
    A defense spending bill the Senate is expected to pass this week would
    add another $80 billion to that.” 17 December 2013

    That’s not counting those decades to come results from costs and the once again ignored, by those served, issues!

    The wars, neither Afghanistan nor Iraq, have yet been paid for. Nor
    especially the now decades to come, DeJa-Vu all over again, the of
    results for those sent, over and over, and the continuing under funding
    the Peoples Responsibility, the Veterans Administration charged with
    much more then just caring for the wounded, as those served ignore most
    of those results from!!

    ‘Cost of War’ site {real and estimated costs}: “Total
    US federal spending associated with the Iraq war has been $1.7 trillion
    through FY2013. In addition, future health and disability payments for
    veterans will total $590 billion and interest accrued to pay for the war
    will add up to $3.9 trillion.” 19 March 2013 © 2011 Watson Institute, Brown University
