One Flag, One Language, No Divided Allegiance


"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Theodore Roosevelt 1907

It was right then and it is right now.

Sometimes we need to be reminded that our forefathers had it right.

I guess that's why forefathers are better than one.

IR, Rockefeller owned a huge interest in Dupont, the prime US explosives contractor during WWII and a huge interest in IG Farben Industrie in Germany, the Nazi's prime explosives contractor.
Explosives maunfacturing technology was routinely exchanged over the heads of government all during WWII. When Rockefeller was summoned before the House Committee on Un American Activities, his response was that he was obligated to make the best possible profit for his shareholders.

Prescott Bush, GHW Bush's father and GW Bush's Grandfather helped finance Hitler as part owner of Brwon Brother's Harriman, Union Bank, seized for trading with the enemy and later quietly returned after the war.

From City Troll's bank article

The Anonymous post is in response to my comment at The City Troll:
"...billions of dollars in dirty money continues to flow through unsuspecting banks in New York..."

"I don't think the banks are all that unsuspecting. The old Chase Manhattan Bank of NYC maintained an open bank in occupied France throughout WWII in order to process business transactions with NAZI Germany. Business always trumps national loyalties in times of...well...anything."

There's a link to a New York Post article concerning a NYC bank that claims they didn't know funds were passing through their fine establishment to Islamic loons who then used the loot to buy more guns and bullits to kill Americans and others.

Thanks Anonymous. The info provided is factual and is well known, but too often ignored. Other companies involved in propping up the NAZIS include Coca-Cola, IT&T, Bethleham Steel, Ford Motor Co...

Back to your column --

All of my grandparents were immegrants, all became citizens -- well - three of the four. All attended night school to learn english and American Citizenship!

They spoke yYiddish at home, but they spoke english in the street. I never heard any of them ask that their ballots or street signs be written in Yiddish

We don't need an immigration bill. Just take TR's words and make them law. It's a simple yes or no vote....


Oh, and as for the conspiracy theories on Bush/Nazi connections:

WHO CARES???
