American culture is essentially an offshoot of English culture with its First World mores. Read that a relative lack of deceit, machismo, a belief in education, sobriety, etc.

If anything: modern Spanish culture is closer to ours than average Mexican is to the former.

Bottom line: if so-called 'Hispanic' culture is so damn great: why are we flooded with those criminals from (mostly) Latin America?

skin heads pretty much hate everyone except other skin heads. A friend of mine lives in a rather harsh part of town. It was 630 am and he heard a car squeel around the corner then slam into the curb. My buddy went out to see if the guy was ok and the guy got out and wanted to fight him. Yep, skinhead.

If you are so annoyed with American culture: warts and all; do us all a favor and move to another nation where you would be happier.

You're right, this is America, and EVERYONE needs to speak or atleast understand english!

I'm getting sick & tired of these hispanics who've been living here for 5-10 years and they don't make the effort of learning atleast 30 freaking words of english! .

if the government doesn't do something quick about this issue, America will turn into a 3rd world country!

So, do like I did, learn Spanish, it is very usefull now, and more so in the future, I agree that our standard of living is going down but not because
of the migrant workers.
