The year is 1907.....but the speaker knew what he was talking about.


Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in
1907.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes
here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he
shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an
outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or
birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming
in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no
divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something
else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the
American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the
English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is
a loyalty to the American people."

We won't hold it against you being from the same State as Sheepdog. J/K Texas and Sheepdog both are alright.

Trouble is you will never here that and a lot more said by our fore fathers in a school house. American history is not taught like it use to be. Most never heard of Teddy Rooesvelt.

Teddy was a big ole puppy till you kicked him-then he was Max's worst nightmare--I have great respect for the man's life-wish that he were president now-a Bull Moose might clean out the barn a little...he also loved guns and hunting-quite a man, from what I've read.....thanks for sharing -I'm going to have a thousand business cards made up with that on the back and give them out-see you on the news!!!
