as·sim·i·late v 1: take up mentally; "he absorbed the knowledge or beliefs of his tribe" [syn: absorb, ingest, take in] 2: become similar to one's environment; "Immigrants often want to assimilate quickly" [ant: dissimilate] 3: make similar; "This country assimilates immigrants very quickly" [ant: dissimilate]
Respect our values. Obey our laws. Accept our traditions. Welcome to our country. Refuse and expect to be as welcome as dogshit on a bride's slipper.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
