    The english language has taken words of languages as its own.

    So make everything english only? .. talk about voter discrimation. So your willing to not allow 1/3 or more of this country just because the cannot READ the language. This is a literacy issue. Your basicly wanting only educated people voting and the peons stay away.. No thank you.

    •  We don't have an 'official language' (1+ / 0-)

      just as we don't have an official ethnicity or religion, and thank God for that. It was bitterly amusing to see the cant about singing the National Anthem in Spanish and see how far back the government's been printing versions in all sorts of European languages, "good ones" though like Polish and German.

        I grew up in NYC.. im used to seeing signs and posters in many languages for the different groups that reside there.. all this "one langauges" crap bugs the hell out me to no end.
