Very good reading. But... That was the "old" America. The "new" America must be changed to become a worthy member in the coming new world order. Even now we are working to educate your children to become World Citizens and not "Americans". Tolerance, Diversity, and Environmental Awareness are important parts of being a citizen in the New World that is coming. Can you stop it? No. Slow it down, but not stop it. Take a long look at the textbooks in any public school and tell me I am wrong. [IMG]http://www.duhspot.com/users/smiley/s/contrib/aahmed/sad.gif[/IMG]
