New Bill of Rights

One of my good friends sent me an email containing a new Bill of Rights. Most of the items, I agree with wholeheartedly, but one was quite mean-spirited and certainly demonstrates a lack of understanding of how our nation came into being.

"ARTICLE X: This is an English speaking country. We don't care where you are from, English is our language. Learn it or go back to wherever you came from!"

This is the one that bugs me. We are an English speaking country because we stole it from other people, slaughtering most of them, as we dissed their languages and cultures. AND, now, we're supposed to be PROUD, no ARROGANT, about that fact. Did we take that advice ourselves? Heavens, no...

Give it a rest! The whole WORLD needs to take a chill pill and learn to go along to get along before we do all of us in.
