Hwever, I as a legal immigrant now of 53+ years, I see some new thing in the USA homeland and here it is: While America's military circles the globe, America has been basically peacefully invaded, actually at the "invitation" of so called patriots for illegals to come and work here in America, now only God knows how many and whose language is now as legal as English. Every Government office one calls one has to chose between English and Spanish, right? Every business in America operates in these two languages.

Yes, the USA borders still remain not much better as a sieve. Yes, illegal drugs flow in from many parts of the world, even from Afganistan where Americans are dying. No question from Colombia where America has already spent billions to really no avail. So my dear writer this my above comment seems to something very new inedeed. This is not the way things were in America when I, my wife and 2 year old Heidi entered America. I feel the America has sold its sovereignty to the lowest bidder.

I conclude that if the Founding Fathers were to rise they would be scandalized back to their graves were they to see how America now operates in the Homeland and the world over. In my book, as a truly brutal Empire as all previous ones before.
