"The Star Spangled Banner" was written to commemorate a war against the English. Now, our President says that it should be sung in English.
Just sayin', is all. Who would want to hear "La Marseillaise" in any language other than French (MP3)?
. . . and just to complicate things further, the war was fought against an English king who was born and raised German, and never could be bothered to learn the English language.
And just to top it off, English was never declared the official language of the Several Sovereign States because the Congress repeatedly deadlocked between the advocates of English and German.
