It's unfortunate Obama left a vacuum in that country. A less desirable entity filled the vacuum.
It's a lesson to some of you who think the Middle East and other events taking place in the world is none of our business. We are not immune to the outcomes. There are forces who would like nothing more than for it to come back and haunt us.
So where is the preident these days? Do they have him under house arrest or something?
look at what getting involved in Afghanistan in the 80's got us.

or in Iran in 1955

or Iraq in 1979
or Iraq again in 2003
or Libya after WWII

we need to learn to stay out of other people's affairs and giving blind allegiance to Israel, one of the biggest human rights offender in the world.

Amnesty instead of assimilation is a recipe for the furtherance of American decline.
The following principles have been abandoned, scorned, and sabotaged:
We believe these truths constitute the distinctive characteristics of American nationality:
*American unity depends upon a widely-held belief in the principles and values embodied in the American Constitution and their fulfillment in practice: equal protection and justice under the law; freedom of speech and religion; and representative government;
*Lawfully-admitted newcomers of any ancestral nationality—without regard to race, ethnicity, or religion—truly become Americans when they give allegiance to these principles and values;
*Ethnic and religious diversity based on personal freedom is compatible with national unity; and
*The nation is strengthened when those who live in it communicate effectively with each other in English, even as many persons retain or acquire the ability to communicate in other languages.
As long as we live by these principles and help newcomers to learn and practice them, we will continue to be a nation that benefits from
substantial but well-regulated immigration.
You have not heard an iota about the above principles from Washington. It is the erosion of Americanization and the ascendancy of the collectivists that helped create the conditions for the last presidential Election Day.
When you say Americanized, you mean white or, white privilege. Sorry but, if your forefathers had good intentions then America is doing just as it was intended. Blossoming like a flower through a spectrum of colors. You blindness only allows you to see the illiterate immigrants who speak no English, not their children who go to American schools & will eventually have American friends, therefore speak English as their primary language. I know a bunch of Puerto Ricans that don't speak the language of their nationality but, understand it & that's how they communicate with their parents. It has less to do with the language a person speaks & everything to do with the white first mentality of some of you southern & mid west caucasians. If this is truly the melting pot it was intended to be, there should be no dominate language because, there should be no dominate nationality. My sister in law is Dominican & spike no English when her & my brother 1st met. Didn't stop them from communicating & falling I'm love with eachother. I've had the same experience with a Puerto Rican ex. She still barely speaks English. Didn't stop us from hitting it off. Y'all have a fetish for all this old racist literature. America is not what it was when those white dudes wrote those artifacts from only a white perspective. Americas flower has blossomed!

Tell that to all the people in the Middle East who lost about 800 civilians due to Obama & his drones. As a matter of fact, why don't you go over there and tell them yourself, then see how many nanoseconds it takes before you are stoned to death.

LOL!

Hubby has to tell me where it is so, until then, I'm stuck.

You forgot to upload the picture of Hillary while she was lying to Congress and dismissing the death of four patriots, nutjob.

Seeing you have no life, just do it.

I think it is important to accept and understand that intelligent people can have differing opinions without sinking into pissing contests.

Note, however, that I said *intelligent* people. While engaging with Liberals, I can spray like a skunk.

BRAVO BRAVO. Very eloquent and well said.

BTW, not all of us Caucasians believe in the Tea Party, what it stands for and American exceptionalism. Every country, every culture has their pros and cons....

Children are better off learning and speaking as many languages as possible.

Then how could you worship some who claims to be king of the Jews? Mind you, I'm conscious of the fact that the people of Israel were dark skinned people in those times, but to my knowledge, God made all people so, why would his 1 begotten son claim to be the God of only the Jews?
