The Colonel and Mr. Lincoln

TAKE A FEW MOMENTS AND READ THIS LETTER. I KNOW IT HAS BEEN AROUND BEFORE BUT THESE ARE STRONG, POWERFUL AND COURAGEOUS WORDS COMING FROM A RETIRED COLONEL. PLEASE SHARE IT WITH SOMEONE WHO MAY NOT HAVE SEEN IT.

33 Senators Voted Against English as
America's Official Language on June 6, 2007.

Senators:
Your vote against an amendment to the immigration Bill 1348.... to make English America's official language is astounding.


On D-Day, no less, when we honor those that sacrificed in order to secure the bedrock, character and principles of
America, I can only surmise your vote reflects a loyalty to illegal aliens.

I don't much care where you come from. What your religion is. Whether you're black, white, or some other color, male or female, Democrat, Republican or Independent....... But I do care when you are a United States Senator representing Citizens of America ...and Vote against English as the official language of the
United States.

Your vote reflects Betrayal; Political Surrender; Violates Your Pledge of Allegiance; Dishonors historical principle; Rejects Patriotism; Borders on traitorous action and; in my opinion, makes you unfit to serve as a United States Senator.....impeachment.....Recall.....Or other appropriate action is warranted, or worse.


Two of you who voted against English as
America's Official Language are candidates for President and Vice President of our country: Senator Biden, Senator Obama, Senator Clinton and Senator Dodd.
Four Senators vying to lead America, but won't, or don't, have the courage to cast a vote in favor of English as America's Official Language when 91% of American Citizens want English officially designated as our language.


This is the second time in the last several months this list of Senators have disgraced themselves as 'political Hacks'..... Unworthy as Senators and certainly unqualified to serve as President of the United States .


If America is as angry as I am, you will realize a backlash so stunning it will literally 'rock you out of your socks'......... And preferably totally out of the United States Senate.

The entire immigration bill is a farce... Your action only confirms this really isn't about
America ... it is about self-serving politics......despicable at best. It has been said: 'Never Argue with an Idiot....They'll drag you down to their level!'

PRESIDENT ABRAHAM LINCOLN SAID:




'Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damages morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, quickly tried and hanged!!!"


PLEASE KEEP THIS GOING AROUND THE UNITED STATES UNTIL THE ELECTION IN NOVEMBER!

The idea that English will be replced by any other language in this country is absurd.

Can these people honestly think that in a world where people from other countries learn English in order to conduct business around the world?

If you really believe that, then to paraphrase Barak Obama recently:

"I've got a bridge in Alaska to sell you"

And as a further not. It is absolutely astounding that the dumbasses how get this, shit their pants, and vote for McCain will ignore or not even look into to blatant facts that:

McCain is not going to reform or fight anything in Washington, all his advisers are lobbyists.

His former economic adviser said we are a country of whiners in regard to the economic shit storm which he is in large part responsible for.

McCain was with Bush and Co cheering on the Iraq war saying we'd be greeted as liberators. Guess all that experience doesn't amount to squat when you have shit for judgement... but hey he's a POW so what else do you need.

Our financial institutions are crumbling while at the same time even Alan Greenspan is saying McCain's economic plan and tax cuts are very bad for this country.

Doesn't matter that Sarah Palin blatantly lied about he Bridge to Nowhere and the jet... that she doesn't know what the Bush Doctrine is... or that her foreign experience with Russia is that she can see it from Alaska.

No... it doesn't matter that McCain/Palin are shoving shit under our nose and telling us it's chocolate cake... when all they will bring is more or the same, more economic misery, and no vision for ending the Iraq occupation (fyi - Obama's plan is already being grudgingly acted on by the Bush admin of all things)

But the WORST thing that will destroy this country is apparently NOT the collapse of our economy, or the death and ruin of our military men and women, families getting closer and closer to poverty and being shut out of health care...

no, no... all that is fine, we can be poor, overworked, sick, etc. but ENGLISH will be the OFFICIAL language!

They should enact a law where people who forward these emails get hit in the head with a two by four. Voting against THAT would be a real crime.

The quote from Lincoln is a fraud:

"Lincoln never said that. The conservative author who touched off the misquotation frenzy, J. Michael Waller, concedes that the words are his, not Lincoln's. Waller says he never meant to put quote marks around them, and blames an editor for the mistake and the failure to correct it. We also note other serious historical errors in the Waller article containing the bogus quote."

Like creatures of the Undead, emails like this are almost unkillable. Logic and reason are powerless against them. There is only one cure: drive a wooden spike straight through the heart of your Dad's/ moms'/ aunt's /grandma's hard drive. Only this can fell the horrible creature.

ohhhhh nooooooo!

On day i called yesterday I speak the English like okay like American man.

But now I am not talking so good and starting to talk other way of talking like from other country.

If only some good hombre can save the democracy to save my freedoms and make the English language of this country-o.

Also... Ellen Degeneris gets married I hear... but now my marriage falling appart. I just knew those gay people getting the marriage would destroy the marriage in this country.


* gee, ain't it funny how Republicans think freedom and democracy absolutely depend on telling people what they can't do. What's up with that?

This going to sound horrible, but fuck it:
I can hardly wait till all the WWII vets are dead so I don't have to listen to yarns about how ____________ (insert current war, domestic crisis, social ill) reminds them of the victories they had in WWII, when in reality the closest thing it resembles is Vietnam.

And besides the fraudelent Lincoln quote, so is the rest of the email which takes the whole voting issue out of context and in fact it would be REPUBLICANS who would eventually voted against this idea:

Here in Oklahoma there's a lot of push-back from the Indian tribes, esp. the Cherokee nation. It's an interesting alternate take on the 'official' English argument.
