    I very much agree!

    We are becoming very fractured! America has always been a melting pot but now we are not melting together anymore. Group, instead of individual indenty is now the "in" thing!

    What flame? You're exactly right. That's what America is. People who immigrated here and when they stepped on US soil, were happy, cried, were instantly proud to be an American and didn't hesitate 1 second to jump in and become a contributing part of it and love this land until the day they die. They didn't forget their homeland, they held on to and taught their kids their culture and language, but America made sure they knew they were American.

    Now, most sneak across the borders to grab what free shit they can, laugh, piss on it and take or send it home. Then have kids who go to schools for free while we pay for teachers that speak their language because it would be a travesty to expect them to learn and actually USE American English. Then they do things like skip school to march in the streets chanting about taking this land back while carrying flags of their families home country. Sounds like a foreign enemy to me and I think they used to get shot or captured. Now we give them handouts from our pockets while we wipe their spin from our eyes.

    For the record, I do think, and I know people, who are truly proud immigrants who contribute and consider themselves American's while they rightly preserve their culture and language. It's just the POS, leaching scum bags I have a problem with.

    Hit it right on the head. I am tired of people saying they are Mexican or German or any other foreign country. Most if not all are citizens that say these things. If you are an American and claim any other country(or nationality) first then you need to pack it up and take off.

    All these hyphenated names are for groups of idiots that aint shit & need to feel better about themselves. I feel the same way about women that have hyphenated names.

    i think people who say they are german or mexican or spaniard arent saying it as nationality but more so as a heritage, bloodline, ancestry. i mean my mother was born in mexico because her father was picking fruit in california otherwise she would be a american born citizen. now i dont chant im mexican for like the viva la raza crap but ill say im mexican in the fact that my mom is from mexico and that is where my mother's heritage is from. granted before mexico they came from ireland and whatnot (did a blood search) but that is another post. and my father, well i just know he is caucasian, a smörgåsbord of european countries is all i can say.

    as nationalities go, if you become a naturalized citizen or are born here then hyphen crap is pointless.

    “"I care nothing for a mans creed or his birthplace or descent but I regard him as an unworthy citizen unless he is an American and nothing else."
    T.Roosevelt"

    “"There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism... A hyphenated American is not an American at all.... Americanism is a matter of the spirit, and of the soul... The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans... each preserving its separate nationality... The men who do not become Americans and nothing else are hyphenated Americans... There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American."

    -Theodore Roosevelt”

    I did not like some of the balls he started rolling, but he did have a lot of qualities I admire.
