A Culture That Demands Special Treatment
The United States of America is a young country in comparison to other parts of the world. In the 200 plus years many have come from many different places in the world to the USA. They come here for new opportunities to live long and prosper. The United States is a melting pot because the children of these new arrivals do not continue to follow their parents' ways. Rather, the children adapted to the fashions, manners, and attitudes of American ways. It is called assimilation. There is a new wind blowing that is troubling, and its name is multicultural diversity. The children and society at large is not allowed to be proud of an American Way. Now, it is politically correct to not question any other culture in the world. Political correctness means that your culture is no better than another person's culture. This political correctness in my opinion is BS. We do not need to be ashamed of our American culture. The children of immigrants should not be forced to be exactly like their parents. This is the United States of America.
Over at Townhall.com, Mary Graber has an excellent article about her American experience as the daughter of Slovenians.
O'Reilly had a segment of his show about public funding for an Arabic school in New York City. As a former teacher he was aware of students with English not their primary language, but he was unaware of an entire public school being constructed for any other ethnic group in New York City. I let google be my friend, and I found another similar school in Bridgeview, Illinois.
I don' think the Illinois school is publicly funded.

A New Orleans cabbie assaulted his fare for getting in his taxi with a dog. CAIR replied by pointing out that "the saliva of dogs invalidates the ritual purity needed for prayer" and left it to the scholars of Islam to decide whether a guide dog should be allowed in a cab. The judge, after researching Islamic attitudes and finding no support for the driver's claims, called his behavior "a total disgrace."
A group of law enforcement officers go to a convention in Delaware, and a speaker at the convention urges them to indulge Muslim misbehavior.

This Sunday's election in France gives me hope for France. I just worry more now about what will happen in the United States.
