No Poll. I want folks to opine. What has changed in America since post WWII? Is there too much of a cultural & religious divide?

Of course diversity is killing America. Not merely other cultures, races and ethnicities, but the degree to which these cultures, races and ethnicities reject being American. They are helped along by well meaning liberals who ecourage non-assimilation. We aren't one country, we are a collection of tribes that occupy a geographical landmass and compete for its resources.

Certainly is. One of the best arguments against diversity is the story of the "Tower of Babel", a group that had the arrogance to think they could build a tower to Heaven and challenge God when they suddenly found themselves speaking in incomprehensible languages to each other. Please explain what has happened here since the cancellation of the Apollo Program. Call your local supermarket drug store to refill your prescription and you get the "Press one for Spanish, Press two for English" telephone answering machine recording.
Another argument against it can be found in the history of the Second World War. Germany was the least ethnically diverse combatant nation in that conflict, much smaller geographically and population wise than either the Soviet Union or the United States but it took the combined efforts of the USA, USSR, Great Britain, Canada, the Free French, the Free Polish armies and many other smaller efforts to bring Germany to its knees, and that result wasn't even certain despite the fourty months of bloody conflict that had elapsed since the American entry, until the American Army seized the Bridge at Remagen, Germany over the Rhine River, March, 1945.

Even here in Los Angeles it still says one for English.
When it says 2 for English I'm moving to Norway.

I like Norwegian better.

And people wonder why blacks vote for Democrats.

Don't panic girls. We have never all gotten along together without dispute. We're not supposed to. And we have never been whatever fantasies the white nationalist numbskulls masterbate over. We have always been a bunch of this and that and we have always been at each other's throats to one degree or another. It's our strength. Stop being such pussies about it.

What mission was NASA charged with after the cancellation of the Constellation/Orion Lift Vehicle program? Figuring out which way a devout Muslim had to face in order to pray to Mecca while orbiting the Earth in the ISS.

The collective "we" is just a clusterfuck. It saddens me that today to be American is tantamount to having concentric circles on one's back. The Muslims are winning here and it's our own that are the enablers!

Waves of immigrants are arriving, and have been arriving here since the Pilgrims.

The more diversity the better! It's the sinew of American society.

I wonder how many folks who are fearful, suspicious and bigoted against new arrivals eat pizza, hot dogs, chow mein or tacos? How many of those fearful ignorant bigots lack chutzpah or suffer schadenfreude or consider themselves bon vivants?

What a tragically boring place this country would be if we were all the same. Listened to the same music, read the same books, ate the same food. Thank God for America! Thank God for the immigrants who come to revitalize this nation and add spice to the melting pot.

Why, if we reversed it, what Cultures get to stay and which have to leave?

What language does Herman Cain speak?
What language does Barack Obama speak? without benefit of his teleprompter?

I'll thank God for them if and when they pay their share of taxes.

Herman Cain speaks whatever language Rush and the Koch brothers tell him to speak.
