Well I guess it's official. They've changed the lyrics to the Nation Anthem to Spanish. We all knew it was coming, or at least shouldn't be surprised. I have FOX "news" on right now and they just said a mexican musician re-did the National Anthem and CHANGED SOME OF THE LYRICS to make it more pleasing to Mexicans. THEY DIDN'T JUST SING THE SONG IN SPANISH, THEY CHANGED THE LYRICS. I JUST now found this out so details are still sketchy. If I find out more, I'll post it. Has anyone heard anything about this? What do you think?

Absolutley NOT. English should me made the "official" language of America. Learn it or leave.

When I initially posted this thread about 5 minutes ago, I didn't realize there was an identical one right before mine. Sorry about that.

I want to hear what they did to the song and i am looking for it so i can let you know what they did to it.
If they have any sense at all, they would translate it as close as possible, though i have to let you know, its almost impossible to translate it word for word and have it make sense in Spanish.
I know Spanish fluently, so if anyone knows where i can hear it, let me know, please.

It would be a disgrace if the "meaning" is changed.

I also encourage others who understand Spanish to listen and give their imput.

I agree. Your in America, if you want to stay then learn the language. If not then go back to where you came from.

That's simply going too far. Enough is Enough

I received this Email this morning. Some of it is right on the money, some I do not agree with totally. I especially like the part about the VP not being able to hunt well.
Please do not shoot the messenger:

"""Dear President Bush:

I'm about to plan a little trip with my family and extended family,
and I would like to ask you to assist me.
I'm going to walk across the border from the U.S. into Mexico,
and I need to make a few arrangements.
I know you can help with this.

I plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration
quotas and laws.
I'm sure they handle those things the same way you do here.

So, would you mind telling your buddy, President Vicente Fox, that I'm
on my way over?
Please let him know that I will be expecting the following:

1. Free medical care for my entire family.

2. English-speaking government bureaucrats for all services I might
need, whether I use them or not.

3. All government forms need to be printed in English.

4. I want my kids to be taught by English-speaking teachers.

5. Schools need to include classes on American culture and history.

6. I want my kids to see the American flag flying on the top of the
flag pole at their school with the Mexican flag flying lower down.

7. Please plan to feed my kids at school for both breakfast and lunch.

8. I will need a local Mexican driver's license so I can get easy
access to government services.

9. I do not plan to have any car insurance, and I won't make any effort
to learn local traffic laws.

10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo
from Pres. Fox to leave me alone, please be sure that all police
officers speak English.

11. I plan to fly the U.S. flag from my house top, put flag decals on
my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any
complaints or negative comments from the locals.

12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes,
and don't enforce any labor laws or tax laws.

13. Please tell all the people in the country to be extremely nice
and never say a critical word about me, or about the strain I might
place on the economy.

I know this is an easy request because you already do all these things
for all the people who come to the U.S. from Mexico.
I am sure that Pres. Fox won't mind returning the favor if you ask him

However, if he gives you any trouble, just invite him to go quail
hunting with your V.P.

US Citizen"""
