    He made great arguments, sadly this was from a hearing held in Hartford, CT not from the one held by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    I don't know why Mr. Ong apologized for English not being his first language, he speaks English much better that a number of US Senators I can think of.

    True.

    It's very hard to understand some of those crotchety old curmudgeons waffling through their jowels.

    Sad but true, and certainly not a surprise.

    Love this guy. and he made an awesome speech and I am impressed with his citation of evidence presented. One whom I would be proud to stand next to as a fellow American Citizen. Not born here but embraces our traditions and proud history as if he was.

    People like him give me hope, and not an empty and false hope either.

    His use of the word "your" bothered me a bit. He used it a couple of times. As a fellow American by choice, this is my nation.

    Though that's possibly down to English being his second language.

    I took it to mean he was speaking to the committee and not speaking generally. He probably also felt your was more appropriate as he was not born here too. I know a few people who still say "in my country..." when talking about where they are from but they are a citizen here.
