If there's a god, damn it she won't mind.
If there's a god, baby she won't mind.
I took spanish in high school. As I recall, we were required to speak Spanish in class and learn spanish phrases, how shocking.
So you would be happy if they sung the star spangled banner in English?
It is in poor taste.
Maybe this is not in good taste, but it isn't exactly a Constitutional crisis.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
You know, whenever I want to scoff at the notion that opposition to illegal immigration is rooted in racism, something like this comes along. I know not all people who take issue with illegal immigration are close minded bigots (I'm one of them in fact), but this clearly shows that some are.
I could see this being an issue in a social studies class or something, but this is SPANISH CLASS. The object of the class is to teach students to speak SPANISH. Why not use the pledge? The ideals and the respect for our nation and heritage embodied in the pledge are far more important than the language they are spoken in. Heck, I'd be happy to hear the pledge spoken in any language, since the ideals are what real patriotism is rooted in.
Slipping into madness is good for the sake of comparison - Unknown.

^ For the Creoles - who have every bit as much right to their heritage and language as the English speakers (so to do the residents of New Mexico and Arizona that have indigenous Spanish speaking ancestry there that goes back hundreds of years prior to the formation of our country even.)

If someone thinks it's acceptable assignment they must be a globalist (w/e you mean by that term)?
I may be wrong.
It is in poor taste.
Nationalism was in good taste until WW2 and then it became un-American. As far as I'm concerned it still is, especially by those who claim to be "patriots".
