How can you support the world when you neglect your own country?



One country One culture One language!

I actually have nothing to say on this issue partly because you haven't told us anything.

I am posting out of courtesy to tell you that you might wish to elaborate a little further in the OP. It is against ats t&c to just drop a video and wait.
Cheers

I approve of almost everything said in this video, and is a good reflection of what is wrong with America today. Citizens opinions do not seem to matter, and we are given a way to let our collective voices to be heard, are you going to sound off seeing that we have been given this opportunity?

All multi cultural societies have collapsed in history, are we next? If we continue down our present course, I think so.

I will agree with just about everything said in the video, myself.

'Common sense' should really be re-named, because as I've learned so far in life, it's really not very 'common'...

Ohhhh man, I just found a severe contradiction in my train of thought...

I want people to keep their 'God' out on my life. But I always want people and their 'Spanish' kept out of my life.

I guess we will NEVER completely 'assimilate'

Ok, let me say this first. If nothing else, we now know that Lou Dobbs, looks absolutely breathtaking in drag.

As to the video and it's message, I will say that it points well to the source of your frustrations, but does very little little to address them. It just way to oversimplified and is riddled with false premises.
For example, it and then you state that all multicultural societies have failed. This is a fundamental premise to this argument. And whereas it is technically correct, it is also misleading. The fact is that ALL societies but for the present ones have in fact also failed, no matter their societal structure. It is like saying, every man who has eaten eggs will die. This is also true, but not a causal affect.

As for changing our use of the English language to reflect our unity as Americans, I am afraid it's just incredible simplistic and unrealistic. Don't get me wrong, we have all been witness over the last twenty years our governments manipulation of the Word to be able to communicate the terrible things they do in a way that appeases the public. I believe the late George Carlin had an amazing bit on this topic, before anyone was aware of it. Changing our use of language is but a short term solution to a long term problem. Doing so will only take you as far as the other side of the existing coin.

The only way the unity you crave can be seeded is by letting go of all our relative concepts that revolve around the Word itself. Stripped of our conceptual shackles the Word loses it's power to divide.

That's what I think anyway.

Lou Dobbs is still funny.

I greatly enjoyed that video. I too agree with it. It reminds me of the thread about modern america being another ancient rome and how the parallels of when it crumbled with that of today are so similar.
