America at one time was a "melting pot" and, as our coins have printed on them," E Pluribus Unum" which means out of many (countries of the world) one! New arrivals would learn English,adopt the American values of freedom and patriotism and free enterprise and though still gathering with their native peoples and enjoying the customs of their homeland-they became Americans-NOT hyphenated Americans! Multiculturalist stuck their foot in the door and fingers in the pie and brought in their " all cultures are equal" mantra and that is why you see large pockets of ethnic groups form a "salad bowl" and racial groups vying for THEIR RIGHTS-with multiple languages on radio,TV,newspapers,businesses, and nine languages on the Calif. ballot!

Our friends left the meeting mightily miffed.

At the time, I viewed such initiatives...
