I never in the past thought this would be an issue as I have seen in the past decade...now, more than ever, we need to make English the official language.

"Because they have their own channels...why flood ours? Honestly, this is going to cause you to bang your head yet again, but I wish we would do away with ALL the spanish channels, on tv and the radio and the ads...force them to learn English...when in Rome...."

Happymom, you are on the right track. However, I believe there should be Spanish channels for those who want to watch it. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should there ever be a Spanish commercial on English TV or radio, EVER! That is what the SPANISH channels / stations are for. These channels / stations are only alienating their English-speaking audience because we SPEAK ENGLISH!!! I get so angry when I hear these commercials that I have now stopped watching local channels and listening to my favorite radio station because I am so OFFENDED by the blatent disregard for the English-speaking community. LEARN TO SPEAK ENGLISH OR GO HOME!!!!

Amen... I've traveled all over the world, and almost EVERY place had English commercials (in addition to their language & others). But Americans are weird about this, and seem to think 100% of everything needs to be in English - silly and sad.

I have nothing against a person who wants to learn a second language or keep their culture alive but WHY WHY WHY is always JUST SPANISH??? And, who asked for it on regular tv????
Because SPANISH is a major lanuage spoken her. Because commericals are ADVESTISEMENTS...so they are targeting a segment of the population to boost sales. OMG..Spanish is on TV on a commercial...we all are going to die!!! Stop being so dramatic!
But during my vacation in Peru, no one caught a heart attack when they had an English commerical for a particular AMERICAN company!! People are so damn sensitive and arrogant in this country.


Many hispanics watch english stations to learn ENGLISH!!!!!!!!! And Comcast and other know this! You will live folks...you will live.

Based on your spelling and capitalization abilities you would qualify for 'ignorant' status. I doubt that calling people names because they say things you don't agree with is winning you any converts.
