    A Somali arrives in Minneapolis as a new immigrant to the United States. He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, "Thank you, Mr. American, for letting me in this country, and giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care, and free education!"

    But the passerby says "You are mistaken; I am Mexican."

    The man goes on and encounters another passerby.

    "Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America!"

    The person says, "I no American; I Vietnamese."

    The new arrival walks further, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand, and says, "Thank you for the wonderful America!"

    That person puts up his hand and says "I am from Middle East; I am not an American!"

    He finally sees a nice lady and asks suspiciously, "Are you an American?"

    She says, "No, I am from Russia!"

    So he is puzzled, and asks her, "Where are all the Americans?"

    The Russian woman looks at her watch, shrugs, and says... "Probably at work."

    Yup! The American is going the way of the American Indian of yesteryear. We have let the world come in and take it away from us while trying to make their country like ours.

    The Interesting battle will be whose flag will fly over Washington? If predictions come true for 2008, my bet would be the U.N.
