PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE Scandal
This has been around before, but with all the upset about the pledge of allegiance to the flag & trust in big business with all the scandals I am just giving it a second look. Some of the things that are happening are not what you might call the True American Way. Hate, Greed & the rest are also a form of terrorism SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT! Hip Hip Hooray!! Finally, someone has said what I think has been on every American's mind!!!!! This is an editorial written by an American citizen, published in a local newspaper. "IMMIGRANTS, NOT AMERICANS, MUST ADAPT!!" I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture, here in the USA. Since the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Americans. However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the "politically correct" crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism was offending others. I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to America. Our population is almost entirely comprised of descendants of immigrants. However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand. This idea of America, being a multi -cultural community, has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. As Americans, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle. This culture has been developed over centuries of struggles, trials, and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom. We speak ENGLISH, not Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other lan! guage. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language! ENGLISH. "In God We Trust" is our national motto. This is not some Christian, right wing, political slogan. We adopted this motto because Christian men and women, of Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is and always will be part of our culture. If the Stars and Stripes offend you, or you don't like Uncle Sam, then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet. We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don't care how you did things where you came from. Remember, "Delta is ready when you are and they can have you there by nightfall". This is OUR COUNTRY, our land, and our lifestyle. Our First Amendment gives every citizen the right to express his opinion and we will allow you every opportunity to do so. But, once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about our flag, our pledge, our national motto, or our way of life, I highly encourage you to take advantage of one other great American freedom, THE RIGHT TO LEAVE. If you agree with this message, pass it on . If you don't agree pass it on anyway. After all this is America!



Mail Order Bride Industry takes Country by Storm

July 19, 2002, Chicago, IL - One of the most entertaining series of stories in recent news have been those about the "mail-order bride" industry. We will begin by saying that Mail-Order-Bride is not a term which applies to the style in which today's professional man meets a women from another country. The term "Mail-Order-Bride" comes from a time when you could find advertisements for Mail order Bride catalogs in the back of magazines. Agencies would mail out catalogs of foreign women seeking men from other countries and the men would communicate by Postal mail. The success rate of such quests for marriage were pretty narrow considering that the opportunity for Fraud was limitless. These days are long gone since now we have the Internet.
Technology has given this industry a whole new meaning as today's top dating and marriage agencies find unique methods of providing correspondence to areas of the world such as Russia. In this country a wide network of services has emerged and as long as you stick with reputable companies than you will be less likely to be disappointed. The most common services include romantic tours, letter writing, translation, 3-Way Interpreter phone calls, Gift delivery and a long list of other services. Since these are all new ideas for us there really is no regulation that guarantees a client that he will not be scammed or that he can at least expect a certain level of service.
Two companies have stepped in to help set the standard for service and to bring an example of integrity into an industry with a shady past. Red Carpet Connections has made great strides to help set standards of service by personally interviewing all clients and by giving one-on-one personalized service when overseas. With the cooperation of international agencies a black-list has been created which alerts the client and other agencies of potential con-artists. To date there are over 500 women on the blacklist and a lengthy list of agencies and owners who participate in deceptive business praxctices.

A true Pioneer in this industry is John Adams, owner of A Foreign Affair in Arizona, who recently founded MarriageServices.org in a quest for self regulation of the marriage service industry. His mission is to set a standard for service which clients can use to guarantee that their agency meets a certain criteria of service.
Any gentleman who is interested in pursuing romance anywhere in the world would be best served by visiting marriageservices.org or russian-scam.org to make sure that your agency has not been black-listed.
