I am neither lazy or dumb. I just don't want to learn Spanish because I have no need for it. My Hispanic-American friends know English so we are quite capable of communicating with one another.

I have always been well qualifed in my working career for what I did. Spanish back then was not a requirement on most jobs. A couple of decades changed all that by an illegal invasion.
If you don't need spanish then what's the problem???

This country survived for two hundred years without people needing to know how to use a computer. Now people are FORCED to work with DASTARDLY MACHINES, despite our rich tradition of not doing so in the past. Our culture is under attack?

The car dealership was pandering to Italian-speaking Americans. Why shouldn't a business be able to pander to Spanish-speaking Americans if they think it's good for business.

Of course, with some people money trumps everything.

Because it's pandering to a "special interest group"
We are all Americans, that is the only identity you need to have. Liberals love to divide and conquer. We don't want divisions, they are not good for this country. Illegals should have no right to even be in this country.

Ok, so all of this hand-wringing about people who don't speak english taking all the jobs is worrying over nothing.

Good to know! I guess we can just close up this forum.

Yes. Explain it in little words. If it's so obvious, you should be able to explain why.

It's a simple question.

Are americans entitled to jobs? Should they be insulated from competition? I'm just looking for your personal preference here. Yes or no.
