"Mikey," calling himself "Still a Patriot," wrote some fascinating

sentences, to wit:

1. If it were not

so, the founding fathers would have written the constitution in several

other languages.

I do admire those who can read the minds of individuals who have been dead

many decades!

2. I feel it is a disgrace when considerations to alter

American society for the betterment of the less fortunant is ridiculous.

I also feel that it is a disgrace when "considerations ... is ridiculous."

(But I don't usually say so in public!)

3. Furthermore, it is disgusting to go down towards

Miami or Southern California and seeing all those Spanish signs.

Ah, yes -- one might even think that some Americans are actually smart

enough to learn more than one language! And we all now that that ain't true!

Etc. etc. etc. Thank you, Mikey, for your highly revealing post!

(But just which language were you writing in? I couldn't tell.)
