HAMBURGers and FRANKFURTers are GERMAN.

I saw a car dealership that advertised "Si Parla Italiano" on their window. They should probably be deported for using an anti-American language.

Spain conquered the territory now known as Mexico, and as the conquering nation their language became THE language in the land. When Mexico had its very short ownership of California the language spoken was Spanish, that of their conquerors. When we BOUGHT California it became an AMERICAN territory, and therefore we had the right to expect it to be an ENGLISH speaking territory, as part of OUR nation. Thats how it goes, see?
Excellent post!

Homeschool your kid, then. If you're that worried about their education, take control of it.

Silly private sector employers, they think they are free to create hiring criteria to suit their office needs and better serve their customers. But no American should be discriminated against just because they personally lack the prerequisites on the job application!

It depends on what the charges are. Sexual offense cases tend to be very successfully prosecuted, as do obvious physical abuses.

I've seen everything, from an employees handing a patient's furniture and personal items through a window to their husband so they could sell it to pay for his drugs, I've caught an employees using a straw to forcefully blow medications down a patient's throat. I've caught an employee stealing medications, which lead to only myself and my direct supervisor having access to and control of the morphine. I've caught a man raping his own wife, and also caught him trying to inject her with drugs. This same man also made her swallow the needle in order to try and hide the evidence. He was permanently banned and the police arrrested him. He was given a 12 month sentence.

No American should have to learn Spanish to accomodate illegal invaders on the job or anywhere else.

Some schools in the southwest are requiring that our students learn Spanish also. Why, since most Hispanic-Americans know English?
So it was a suggestion, not a demand? It seems like a pretty good suggestion to me. Shouldn't Americans be all about adapting to changing conditions so as to do BETTER than "everyone else"? Didn't you get all indignant when I suggested some Americans had a bloated sense of entitlement? BUt now you're saying the rest of the world should just roll over for Americans because... we're Americans!!!! If you don't want to learn Spanish DON'T. But don't complain when someone with more skills than you finds jobs you can't compete for.

My daughter now has here own children in school who are being forced to learn Spanish.

Learning a non-English language should be optional and NOT mandatory!

Are you sure you are American?

You liberals are obsessed with government enforcement of rules like what language you can speak.
You apparently don't know what a liberal is. They are the opposite of what you are defining them as. It is conservatives that want enforcement of rules, not liberals.
