I Have No Problem With Someone Moving Into This Country And Becoming A Citizen And Making A Good Life For Themselves,but To Take Good Jobs From Others And Cause Hardship To People In This Country Not Acceptable.

Does Any Of This Crap Really Matter Anyways, What Part Of This Life Does Anyone Think We Are Taking With Us When We Pass.....i Know We Worry About Our Children And Generations To Come, But Really All We Can Do Is Teach Our Children Right From Wrong And Let Them Make Thier Own Choices In The Future. For Those Of You Who Belive There Is Truth In The Bible....its Supposed To Happen.

You're right, we should've continued destroying the environment, not doing anything against global warming, polluting the water and air more, creating a 3 trillion dollar deficit for MY kids to pay off, cutting millions off the environmental budget, not searching for alternative fuel sources, giving 34.5 billion dollar profit a year oil companies tax incentives, shoot down anything to help the environment at all.

Gimme a break.

I 86'd the political forums. As much as I hate the political bickering. bs.
I felt the need to show this latest disrespectful episode here.
The protestors put up the Mexican flag over the American flag flying upside down at Montebello High School in California and it wasnt staged.
Lets see if this stunt will be the nail in the coffin of any guest-worker/amnesty plan on the table in Washington.

The pictures are getting play in internet forums and emails but you won't see them in the mainstream newspapers.

I think our nat'l anthem sucks.

Its unharmonious, and its a poem, not a song. Theres so many other songs that would be better. Like America the Beautiful.

Our National Anthem Is A Perfect Song,it Represents The Dtermination Of Our Founding Fathers To Break Away From The Opression Of The King,though It Was Written During The War Of 1812 It Still Pays Homage To Those Who Paid Heavy Prices To Birth The Freedoms We Take For Granted Today.
