The Way EVERY AMerican Should Feel....

I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of anything except numbers. The only things I can think of that are truly discriminatory are things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America. Try to have things like the United Caucasian College Fund, Cloud Magazine, White Entertainment Television, or Miss White America; and see what happens...Jesse Jackson will be knocking down your door. Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes you a killer. You can kill someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one is trying to ban you from driving to the ball game.

I believe they are called the Boy Scouts for a reason, that is why there are no girls allowed. Girls belong in the Girl Scouts! ARE YOU LISTENING MARTHA BURKE?

I think that if you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is not a phobia, it is an opinion.

I have the right "NOT" to be tolerant of others because they are different, weird, or tick me off.

When 70% of the people who get arrested are black, in cities where 70% of the population is black, that is not racial profiling, it is the Law of Probability.

I believe that if you are selling me a milkshake, a pack of cigarettes, a newspaper or a hotel room, you must do it in English! As a matter of fact, if you want to be an American citizen, you should have to speak English!

My father and grandfather didn't die in vain so you can leave the countries you were born in to come over and disrespect ours. I think the police should have every right to shoot your sorry ass if you threaten them after they tell you to stop. If you can't understand the word "freeze" or "stop" in English, see the above lines.

I don't think just because you were not born in this country, you are qualified for any special loan programs, government sponsored bank loans or tax breaks, etc., so you can open a hotel, coffee shop, trinket store, or any other business.

We did not go to the aid of certain foreign countries and risk our lives in wars to defend their freedoms, so that decades later they could come over here and tell us our constitution is a living document; and open to their interpretations.

I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor.

I know pro wrestling is fake, but so are movies and television. That doesn't stop you from watching them.

I think Bill Gates has every right to keep every penny he made and continue to make more. If it ticks you off, go and invent the next operating system that's better, and put your name on the building.

It doesn't take a whole village to raise a child right, but it does take a parent to stand up to the kid; and smack their little behinds when necessary, and say "NO!"

I think tattoos and piercing are fine if you want them, but please don't pretend they are a political statement. And, please, stay home until that new lip ring heals. I don't want to look at your ugly infected mouth as you serve me French fries!

I am sick of "Political Correctness." I know a lot of black people, and not a single one of them was born in Africa; so how can they be "African-Americans"? Besides, Africa is a continent. I don't go around saying I am a European-American because my great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather was from Europe. I am proud to be from America and nowhere else

And if you don't like my point of view, tough...

I had this conversation with a few minorities and well they say that american televison is all white, the shows are white, the majority of workers are white, everything is white so they feel they should have their own shows, own pagents, own this own that so they can share a sense of community.

I can understand that but imo they are segregating themselves by doing that because they don't want white people interfering in that, and yet they say we are racist. go to you will get a good idea of what i'm talking about there, their mentality is quite different on this subject.

Also "should" is just one of those words that should be eliminated from our vocabulary. I believe it should be replaced with "choose"...
It's hard to do i've been practicing that and I still catch myself... it's one of those words that are just so engrained.

You poor sods! (look at me! I'm trendy and "european," not a narrow minded conservative!)

You guys kill me. No good can come of this thread. I predict a flame war within three posts of mine, with a godwin prize eligibility in 7 posts.

You are like the dude at the party who points out that there's um, a . . . a TURD in the punch bowl! Do you expect people to thank you, for showing them what they've been drinking? If they believe you at all, they'll hate you for pointing out their idiocy.

The old-south whitey term was "one's own kind." But they cannot say it, even though it is EXACTLY what they mean, by various 'minority only' events.

Just don't expect to be thanked for pointing out the truth.

You are the one-eyed man, selling mirrors in the city of the blind. There's no market for stuff that the crowd doesn't know they even need . . .

When you say "the way Americans should feel" are you really serious or is it you just wanting the people to think like you? In truth there is no need for the word should in freedom of expression, simply because it takes the freedom out and inverts it to a point of view.

It is a paradox isn't it.

Variety is the spice of life.

Live and let live...

I agree with just about everything except the having to speak English in America. There's alot of different types of english, for instance if you went to S. Africa I'm sure you'd be left in the dust. I think you need a better appreciation of language is better than another and speaking a certain language shouldn't be required for a country. Think about it...that's hating people for being different. Our language comes from many different languages, if you listen you'll notice numerous similarities in all languages. If you can't deal with it, stay inside.
