Oh say can you VEA!?

Yea, imagine my surprise, disgust, shock, anger...when I first heard of this. If case, this is news to you, let me fill you in. Some douchebag (Adam Kidron - if anyone has his address, please pass along so I can go kick the living shit out of this guy) from England (I think the term is...wanker) have came upon a new way to make money of Spanish speaking people (hispanics). He's selling a music album for $10. On that album is the single "Nuestro Himno" which translates to "Our Anthem." It's a Spanish version of the STAR-SPANGLED BANNER! YEA, WHAT THE FUCK!?

WHAT REASON COULD WE HAVE FOR THIS!? according to the wanker, douchebag, asshole, (input your term here)...the song would allow immigrants who haven't yet learned English "to fully understand the character of the Star-Spangled Banner, the American flag and the ideals of freedom that they represent." FUCK YOU! If you're an immigrant, you should already know about what this country represent. Otherwise, you wouldn't be coming here legally and illegally, you'd be going to CUBA! Spare me (and the rest of the intelligent Americans) the bullshit. I know bullshit when I see one and this is definitely bullshit!!!

I agree with G.W. Bush, the National Anthem should be sung in English! People who want to be Americans ought to learn English and sing the National Anthem in English! And I just realized anthoer thing, how many times have you heard some immigrant telling you that they wish to be able to sing the National Anthem because they love this country? NONE! No immigrants wants to sing the National Anthem just for the hell of it. I know this because I was an immigrant myself and you know when was the first time I want to sing the National Anthem - when I was watching the Super Bowl!!! I only want to do it because it would mean a free trip to the Super Bowl. I can't imagine they have you sing it and then say "you gotta leave the stadium now."

What angers me even more is that the Spanish version has different wording from the one and only Star-Spangled Banner. Like what the fuck, are these fucker so incompetent that they not only can't write any new songs but also fuck up redoing old songs? The nuevo song goes like this when translated to English:

The day is breaking, do you see it?
In the light of dawn?
What we so acclaimed at nightfall?
Its stars, its stripes, flew yesterday
In the fierce battle in a sign of victory,
The glow of battle, in step with liberty
at night they said: "it's being defended."

Oh say!
The voice of your starry beauty is still unfolding
Over the land of the free
The sacred flag

Its stars, its stripes,
Freedom, we are equal
We are brothers, in our anthem.
In the fierce battle in a sign of victory,
The glow of battle, in step with liberty
My people keep fighting
It's time to break the chains
at night they said: "it's being defended."

Oh say!
The voice of your starry beauty is still unfolding!

YEA, WHAT THE FUCK!? The is the most fucked up thing ever. It's not even like the Star-Spangled Banner much less a version of it! I don't recall Francis Scott Key ever writing "it's being defended." Who the fuck are the dumb wanker quoting? Key didn't say it, I didn't say it, you didn't say it, who the fuck said it? Just for that, this stupid fucker should be deported back to where he came from! If that happens, I wouldn't doubt that he'd re-write the British National Anthem in...French!

The Star-Spangled Banner is the Star-Spangled Banner. There are no two ways about it. The Hispanics of this country do not need their own anthem because they already have one, it's called the Star-Spangled Banner!

Oh, and that reminds me, if anyone is ever invited to sing the National Anthem anywhere, PLEASE DO NOT DO YOUR OWN RENDITION OF IT!!! Sing it like it is and don't try to put your own twist on it like douchebag celebrities. No one likes it!
