What’s new?

The Wall Street Journal reports that Iran’s government is continuing to stonewall U.N. weapons inspectors. This will certainly complicate efforts to reach a nuclear weapons agreement with Tehran. So what’s new? Iran has again hoodwinked the International Atomic Energy Agency. It has eliminated most of the sanctions imposed on its economy. When will our negotiators learn how to negotiate?

A few caveats

I could accept the illegal immigrant thing a whole lot more with one condition. Congress should pass a bill and the president should sign it that makes English the official, one and only, language to be used in public or in business transactions in the U.S.A.

The bill should also require that only the flag of the U.S.A. can be flown in the U.S.A. If they are not serious enough about their loyalty to the U.S.A. and must fly their own flag, then they should go back where they came from.

It really tees me off to hear immigrants speaking some jibber-jabber and not know if they are talking about me or plotting some terrorist action.

It also tees me off to see a bunch of immigrants protesting our immigration laws while flying flags for some other country. If they want to speak their language or fly some other flag in private, have at it.

If merchants/chambers of commerce want the money of immigrants, no matter their language or the flag they choose to fly, let the merchants/chambers of commerce provide them with classes for loyalty/citizenship and the English language.

I know we are a country of immigrants, but our forefathers had to learn to speak English, and their loyalty was not questionable.
