    If we could do that, it would hasten the day of the ultimate collapse of the US government. As Christians, that would not be a bad thing, since US government intervention in the Middle East has led to massive death and destruction of ancient Christian communities, along with mass importations of Muslims to the West.

    Why not just show their true colors and propose, “La Internationale ?”

      They’re not educated enough to know it…

    It will be Lift Every Voice and Sing, which is like the black national anthem.

      Sounds like a hymn!

    TBH, I’ve never believed TSSB was a good choice for the national anthem, because its lyrics really don’t generally reflect America as a concept. I USED to believe that “American The Beautiful” would have been the more appropriate choice. Nowadays, however, I would be an idiot for suggesting that this song’s lyrics even remotely match the reality of what this place has degenerated into. In fact, I no longer believe this place should even HAVE a national anthem, because there is no nation left for one to glorify or symbolize.

      Same as your natural national anthem ‘America The Beautiful’ was taken from you, ours, The Maple Leaf Forever, was taken from us, because deemed offensive to French-Canadians (it celebrates the British defeat of the French), and I much prefer TMLF to the bland ‘O Canada’.

      Yes, I won’t miss much about the USA when it is gone.

    The Star Spangled Banner has been the national anthem for less than ninety years. It is very hard to sing well, requiring operatic range. Still, these people have to find fault with everything. For a long time this was the unofficial national anthem.

      Whoa; never heard this before!

      I like it. Very stirring!

      But a bit more complicated actually than the Star-Spangled Banner.

    I found this for Will S..

    I didn’t know that there was more than one Red Ensign.

      Thanks fuzzy! 🙂 I taught myself to sing the Maple Leaf Forever in 2001 from off the internet, because nobody had taught me before. :/

      Oh yes, there were several versions of the Red Ensign. Earlier versions had provincial coats of arms incorporated into the flag, but this became unwieldy once we had more than nine provinces, once Newfoundland and Labrador joined in 1949. So they reverted to the English, Scottish, Irish and royal French arms, with the green maple leaves and a female harp; last there were the red maples leaves and a de-sexed harp without breasts and a female bust (head, already mentioned the other bust, heh-heh) on it.

      We then went to our Canadian Pale flag, which I am used to but don’t like as much as the Red Ensign. That was done as a sop to the French. It didn’t appease them. Trying to appease people never works.

        There is one state in the Union that keeps the Union Jack in the canton and it is not one of the original thirteen. It is Hawaii.
        I didn’t know about Oh, Columbia until recently. I am addicted to Girls und Panzer music videos and it was among them. I think my Dad would have recognized it, but since 1931 I don’t think that it has gotten much play.

        Hawaii was a British colony before, the Sandwich Islands, and so they pay tribute to that through their flag.

        I like the girl harp! I guess some feminist had to be offended.
        As for the French, they have a talent for taking offense. The Italians are so mad at them that the MAFIA is still in business. MAFIA is an acronym for “Death to the French, Italy forever!” You can’t sell French wine in Italy, or in Spain. People will not buy it.
