    Now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine: Video Members of a bipartisan group of lawmakers called the Congressional Prayer Caucus want to make sure President Obama knows the country's national motto. Forty-one Republicans and one of the five Democrats from the caucus sent a letter to the president asking him to correct a mistake he made during a speech last month in Jakarta, Indonesia when he said -- quote -- "In the United States, our motto is E Pluribus Unum -- out of many, one." The lawmakers point out the official national motto -- approved by Congress in 1956...

    A letter signed by 42 members of Congress criticizes President Barack Obama for telling students in Indonesia last month that America's national motto is "E Pluribus Unum." Obama commented to the students last month that the U.S. and Indonesia share a similar history. "It is a story written into our national mottos. In the United States, our motto is 'E Pluribus Unum' -- out of many, one." In a letter to the White House, members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus -- mostly Republican -- note that the national motto has been "In God We Trust" since 1956. The caucus chairman,...

    Breakpoint with Chuck Colson ^ | 8/23/2007 | Chuck Colson
    Since 1782, the Latin phrase E pluribus unum—“out of many, one”—has appeared on the Great Seal of the United States. But what happens when we neglect and even deny the importance of the “one”—that is, cultural unity—and emphasize the importance of the “many”—that is, individuals—which, today, we call “diversity”? As a renowned social scientist learned, nothing good. In his famous essay “Bowling Alone,” published some years ago, Robert Putnam documented our increased tendency to “go it alone,” instead of the civic participation that marked earlier eras. This decrease in “social capital,” Putnam argued, adversely affected American democracy. Putnam’s latest project...

    Irene Carr's father was a minister, but he could not perform her marriage ceremony. He couldn't because it was illegal in the 1950s for interracial couples to wed in Missouri. Irene is white; her now-deceased husband, Leon, a steelworker, was black. They eventually married in Chicago and reared three sons. When one told them he knew of no mom or dad like his, they helped start a support organization for biracial couples like themselves. The number of mixed-race marriages has exploded over the last 30 years, growing from about 300,000 in 1970 to more than 3 million today, a new...

    Assimilation, once the goal of every American immigrant, need not be a thing of the past. Our national motto, E Pluribus Unum (From Many, One), was the brainchild of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin in 1776 to complement the unity of colonies into a nation, later the United States of America. E Pluribus Unum still appears on every US coin. Once upon a time, the national motto was also appropriate for America’s immigration policy. We even referred to America as the ‘Great Melting Pot.’ From many immigrants, came many American citizens. That was then, this in now. Not...

    ALBANY Oh, dear. It's that time of year again, when black folks have to be careful with one another. A simple invitation to your tree-trimming party can find you denounced for "capitulating to the master's culture" by the most button-down, suit-and-tie brother on the block. Asking the fellow preschool parent in kente clothing to make a Kwanzaa presentation can find you stammering your apologies when he thrusts his St. Christopher medal at you like Buffy the Vampire Slayer fending off the undead. Being black in December is almost as exhausting as being so in February, when it's taken for granted...

    Two recent news items may represent the tip of an enormous explosion about to take place in this country. Many young Americans are not reacting to the dominant liberal message of dividing the country into racial and ethnic categories in ways that liberals had anticipated.The first news item is out of Oakley, Calif., where a 15-year-old girl is attempting to start a Caucasian students club at her high school. Reports all suggest that there is nothing racist in her desire. Even the vice president of the local NAACP chapter says, "I think she's doing this for the right reasons."She simply...

    Stop me if you've heard the new slogan of the United States of America, "diversity is our strength." Its everywhere: from businesses to hiring practices, to government agencies and college admissions, the list is infinite and the idea seems to be sticking. The drive for more diversity in America has become the early-21st century's version of the arms race between the USSR and the USA. Which organization, business or school can compile the most diversity -- without ever questioning why it is doing such -- will win. From what credible sources tell me, word around Washington D.C. is that the...
