You know, growing up, I was taught how important it was to fit in. We used to read books on etiquette so we always did the right thing in social situations. We learned well how to be an American and what was acceptable and what was not. Language and speaking it properly was very important in my house.
Why? Because we WERE American! We lived in this land, so we learned the land in which we lived. Because this land is GREAT!
Because here, we are FREE.
Here, there are no checkpoints.
Here, you can be whatever you want, have whatever life you choose.
Freedom. This is America.
And some, like it or not, are here only for what they can take, rather than what they can give back. I will stick with the ones who choose to give back, and not only take.
foul communist company COCA COLA
ue what you are talking about. Coca Cola is one of the most capitalist organisations you could possibly hope to name.
Its not a euphemism for "crap you do not like".
Nor is terrorist
Nor is terrorist
Absolutely not. Amazon and Ebay will be communist next, you watch. Youtube will be terrorists for showing any news not broadcast on the media machine of the USA....
A house divided against itself cannot stand, nor can those peoples trust one another if they cannot even communicate.
Actually, English is the official language of this country.

Those damned kanucks up north... divided bastards with their official dual-languages!!
Seriously though, maybe we should actually have a decent education system and try to learn a few languages at an early age as happens in most other countries?!
If we could learn Spanish, and French, we could have no problems understanding all of our neighbors north and south. Doesn't that sound more reasonable than sticking to our sole official language, just cause?
Speaking of the tower of babel. Don't you have it backwards? The tower was an attempt to reach God, which was only possible because they all spoke ONE language. God was ticked off that they became so powerful, so he scattered them out with different tongues... different languages.
Am I misunderstanding the meaning of the story? Haven't heard of it since a wee lad. Just seems you had it backwards.edit on 4-2-2014 by webedoomed because: (no reason given)
Bates lived in Wellesley with Katharine Coman, who was a history and political economy teacher and founder of the Wellesley College school Economics department. The pair lived together for twenty-five years until Coman's death in 1915. In 1922, Bates published Yellow Clover: A Book of Remembrance, a collection of poems written "to or about my Friend" Katharine Coman, some of which had been published in Coman's lifetime.
Some describe the couple as intimate lesbian partners, citing as an example Bates' 1891 letter to Coman: "It was never very possible to leave Wellesley [for good], because so many love-anchors held me there, and it seemed least of all possible when I had just found the long-desired way to your dearest heart...Of course I want to come to you, very much as I want to come to Heaven." Many contest the use of the term lesbian to describe such a platonic "Boston marriage", typical of many professional women of their time. Writes one: "We cannot say with certainty what sexual connotations these relationships conveyed. We do know that these relationships were deeply intellectual; they fostered verbal and physical expressions of love."
