Posts: 38 TAKE A FEW MOMENTS AND READ THIS LETTER. THESE ARE STRONG, POWERFUL AND COURAGEOUS WORDS COMING FROM A RETIRED COLONEL, AND READ WHAT
LINCOLN HAD TO SAY AT THE END. WOW!
33 Senators Voted Against English as America's Official Language on June 6, 2007.
On Wed. 6 June 2007, Colonel Harry Riley, USA, Ret. wrote:
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.
Four of you voting against English as America's Official Language are Presidential Candidates: Senator Biden, Senator Clinton, Senator Dodd and
Senator Obama! .
Four Senators vying to lead America, but won't, or don't, have the courag e 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 l iter ally '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!
Oh the humanity, these damned liberal terrorist lovers...
And extra shame upon Clinton, Dodd, Biden AND ESPECIALLY OBAMA!!!
LINCLON WOULD HANG THEM ALL!!!
The problem is, ,,,,well ,,,,reality!

Further more this transcendent email of caring failed to mention that the entire

Those damn liberals voting against the English language!
We need more mirrors in this world...
I think before passing around pure garbage it is safe to
say that one should investigate...
act like a sheep and then call
other people sheep......
