If you ever needed confirmation that California truly is just like a breakfast cereal, filled with flakes, fruits, and nuts, the California Senate has stepped in to help you out. On May 1, the Democratic side of the aisle has decided to boycott their legislative duties in a sign of solidarity with radical groups that support the notion of rights for illegal immigrants. To top off this travesty, the Senate also passed a resolution, voting along party lines, which supports the "Great American Boycott 2006."
But switching east to Washington, D.C., Michelle Malkin points out an absurdity that should be an embarrassment for President Bush, too. Asked at a news conference about the translation and singing of the National Anthem in Spanish, the President seemed adamant with his declaration that the Francis Scott Keyes’ homage to American courage should be sang in English, and then added, "I think people who want to be citizens of this country ought to learn English," certainly a first step in the assimilation process of becoming a U.S. citizen. It might be a good idea, however, if someone sends a memo to the White House communications department. The entire White House website, as can be seen by following this link has been translated into Spanish.
As Malkin notes, "Who’s assimilating whom?"
