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!!!!
Ooo.I'm so OFENDED when I hear spanish...bowhowho.
Stop whining like a little spoiled brat. You are offended because you only speak one lanuage. Because you grew up in a country where speaking a second had no importance. People all over the world speak multiple lanuages because they understand the importance of knowing another lanuage to be successful. Communication is the key to success. Get off your high horse and relax.

There are spanish stations you can watch, we just don't want it on OUR channels. Learn to speak english. This IS an English Speaking Country. I would'nt expect mexicans to speak english to me if I went to Mexico, nor would I think I would not have to speak arabic in an arab country.

I would at least learn the language of any country I would want to live in.

Tell the other countries to take english t.v out because their language is different as well.

There was probably a reason this thread was dormant for 6 months before it was brought back. A publicly traded company running ads in a foreign language about exercise is not relevant to the immigration issue. Thread had already run its course. Thanks for participating.
