At public special events, especially sporting events, it is common for people in the stands to rise while someone sings the national anthem and the U.S. flag flies. With our American ways of life starting to be compromised in order to make immigrants happy, do you feel that one day there will be a point that public events will no longer have the national anthem for fear of offending foreginers? To me, it seems the singing of the national anthem is one of the last remaning staples of American life.

I believe you are confused. My patriotism doesn't need a cue.

Will a time come where we can't sing the National Anthem?

No, but they'll force you to sing it in Spanish. At gunpoint.

"Amanece, lo veis?, a la luz de la aurora?
lo que tanto aclamamos la noche al caer?"


And you'll be required to wear a sombrero and wave a miniature Mexican flag while you sing.

It's not enough for you that they are patriotic. You'll have that...........in places like Turkey or Germany-in its past.

Could happen. It happened in Sweden in the 90s.

We've gone to the opposite extreme. Now, you also have to stand at attention when they sing "God Bless America" which isn't even the national anthem. And "My Couintry 'Tis of Thee" which is the British national anthem with goofy words that don't mention any country in particular? What's next? Stand at attention for Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA"? "A Horse with No Name" sung by America?

Soon, very soon. It's on the agenda, just wait for it to come around.

It won't be needed after the country splits.
