An America I Don’t Recognize

Written : May 25, 2010

Since election day in 2008, I’ve heard things I thought I’d never hear. A foreign leader was invited to speak in front of the U.S. Congress this past week. He then insulted us by slamming the Arizona immigration law and more than half the Congress applauded… I read the law, and it doesn’t open the door to discrimination. Yet, the American president didn’t defend our country, instead he cowered to Felipe Calderon of Mexico and joined the criticism!

The Phoenix Suns, a prominent NBA basketball team, wore jerseys in at least one playoff game which said “Los Suns,” in opposition to the Arizona law sb1070, which has no civil rights implications whatsoever. First of all, the correct translation for “The Suns” is “Los Sols”, but I never thought a sports team would involve itself in a national, political debate. It disappointed me to hear our president referring to the team as “Los Suns.”

Your Vice President, Joe Biden, on May 24 said Washington, D.C. is not worthy of the title “The Capital of the Free World!” While speaking in Brussels, Belgium, he cited that city’s history and international institutions as reasons why it could well hold the title.

The U.S. Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, criticized BP for the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Ask yourself this: How is this a national security issue? U.S. Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, repeated his shoe reference this week, "We will keep our boot on [BP’s] neck until the job gets done." Does it make you wonder why government officials place blame instead of working with BP to fix the problem?
