Re: [guyanese_genealogy] The Stars Spangled Banner & The US Boycott Issues:
- Again I am requesting that all messages be genealogical and biographical in nature and content. I am positive all prefer our messages to be posted without being monitored. It is upsetting to write an article only to receive a message from moderators saying it is not posted on their message boards. The nest step is to have the moderators screen messages. I really dont want to go there.Please use other forums such as Golden Grove Nabaclis and East Coast for such topics which are not consistent with genealogy.

The Spanish American/Mexican Immigration Boycott Proposals:
On Monday-05-2006 a boycott and demonstration is planned by
authorities in Mexico, against American products there and in the
USA. The organizers are based in Mexico, and they are being
supported by several Trade Unions, Church groups, and affiliated
bodies or worker's organizations.
They are expecting illegal Mexicans and un-documented Mexicans here
in the USA to come out in force in support of this effort. The issue
according to the NPRNews.com Radio, is to send a signal to the George
W. Bush Administration in Washington, that they are against the bill
which intends to criminalize illegal immigrants in this country.
These people are contending that to be un-documented, or illegal,
with no history of any felony, or of breaking any laws while here in
the USA illegally, does not warrant a criminal status or category.
And that aspect of the current legislation in process, must be
amended or revamped immediately.
Personally, I cannot see the rationale for boycotting American
products, when those same products are produced or manufactured by
and large, by those who employ illegal aliens. And these same
illegal aliens need the cash/wages to assist their families here,
and in their homeland Mexico, to survive near starvation.
I sincerely hope that the planners/organizers of this demonstration
really re-consider the gravity or impact it will have on the
legalization process, for the same people they are advocating for!
A Spanish Version Of The Stars Spangle Banner:
A new Latin version of the USA's National Anthem was introduced
today, targeting the Latin community. The intent was to help those
who cannot speak English, to still be able to sing the US National
Personally, I believe that The National Anthem of any country, must
be sung in the pre-dominant language of that country or culture.
That is the reason why it is a National Anthem.
To do otherwise, or to compensate a sub-cultural group in that
country, by allowing homage to be paid or sung in the language of
that sub-cultural group, would de-emphasize the importance and true
meaning of that anthem.
Therefore, I agree with President George W. Bush (this time), for
disagreeing with such an idea.
