Just to remind everyone:
English is not the official language of the United States. The English language is the de facto language of America, meaning that it has not been legally or officially recognized. Not until someone decides to create the American language, we won't have a language that is American.
Therefore, I feel any person that wants to sing the Star Spangled Banner can sing it in whatever language they feel like, be it English, Spanish, French, Chinese, or Hebrew. Take your pick. We have the right to sing our anthem and understand what it says about America, even if we have to translate it to another language. Let's not forget, our nation and its people are a melting pot, meaning all cultures are accepted by the Constitution and Lady Liberty.
Heck, I'd be happy with a President that could SPEAK the English language! Mind you, English is his native tongue. I suspect, however, that GW probably doesn't even know all the words to the National Anthem. But what do I know? I'm not the Decider!
It's a good thing that Feliz Navidad wasn't published in 2006. The extreme right would have hung Jose Feliciano as a traitor to the US and Santa Claus.
To any one of my readers who is handy with tools, see if you can invent an engine that runs on hate? If you can figure that out, you'll solve America's gas crisis and become a millionaire overnight. You see, hate seems to be our greatest renewable energy resource these days.
Lastly, here's another factoid. The Star Spangled Banner was put to the tune of an old British drinking song.
Of course, Conservatives have never complained about that.
Can you imagine why?
