Is this really any surprise to anyone? We are being colonized and our politicians don't seem to even care.

where else but in pc america would you ever see a story like this????
the voters in that oregon town or city should stage a protest...use their rights to assemble and do something about this injustice..unbelievably insane!!!!
enough people complain...they will have to listen.
it worked for the illegal rights marchers.
right?

Fair is fair:

Mexico should mandate that their emergency personnel speak English as well.

In other words: 'PC' libs and their Neo-Con buddies can go to hell.

People, we had all better wake up before its too late.

Time to get out the whooping stick and DEMAND english only in our country.

Demand that all other languages be removed from our society.

Yes, I agree this should be all over the media but they wont.

I am a Nationally Registered EMT and Firefighter volunteer. If the day ever comes that I am required to learn Spanish, I will quit. Just this calendar year alone I have been on 7 EMS runs in addition to working 40 hours a week. In the past calendar year I completed 104 hours of the Firefighter 1 course and well over the 72 hours I needed to re-cert as an EMT. I have precious little time to waste learning Spanish! And WHY should I be expected to give spanish speaking people MORE of my time than I do english speaking people? A requirement to immigrating here is to be proficient in english. Learn english, or don't come here, your life could truly depend on it!

Edited to add:
The reason they are probably desperate to hire firefighters is because it doesn't pay well at all. In Dodge City a firefighter/paramedic I know was earning less than 10 bucks an hour. Guess we really value life and property, huh?
