English, Our Offical Language

I did a little research on this. 33 did vote against the amendment to the bill and those listed below are the 33. I cannot confirm that Col Harry G. Riley wrote the below letter. I was able to confirm that the Abraham Lincoln quote is correct.

The amendment to add English as the official language passed 64-33. It should have been unanimous.

Regardless of the author, I think the letter is good and the more places that publish it the more it will be read and maybe American will stand up and stop the madness that is Congress.

33 Senators Voted Against English as America’s Official Language June 6, 2007.

Senators,

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're 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.

Worse, 4 of you voting against English as America 's official language are presidential candidates: Senator Biden, Senator Clinton, Senator Dodd, and Senator Obama.

Those 4 Senators vying to lead America but won't or don't have the courage 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 back-lash so stunning it will literally rock you out of your panties... 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's about self-serving politics... despicable at best.

DNR, check out the following link to see the actual truth about the senators voting against the amendment:

http://www.snopes.com/politics/immigration/englishvote.asp

This story is actually only partly true... the reason most of the senators voted against the bill is because it said that the United States would have no obligation to offer printed material in other languages, including the forms you have to fill out to just visit our country... can you imagine wanting to visit Germany or Japan or France but not being able to read a word in the airport?

Just thought you'd like to know... and no, you still haven't persuaded me to vote for anyone but Mama Clinton next year... HA!! Still an ASS!! Keep trying, you elephant!!

Damn blogger. Add "te.asp" to the end of that link I just posted. For some reason the blogger comment box cut it off. Sorry about that...

DNR said...

B - Your link goes to a vote that was May 2006, this vote was June 2007. I did not read the entire amendment, so it is possible that this has happened again. But I doubt it. I would hope that without ‘law’ we would still do what was necessary to welcome foreign visitors to our country. If you are going to live/immigrate to there... learn the language, the National Language.

Mama Clinton - Does a person qualify to run a CS department after 12 years of being a CS rep for that company? You know what I mean and I pretty sure we agree, NO. Spending 8 years in the White House as ‘First Lady’ and 4 (I think) years as a Senator does not qualify her to be President
