Not even possible you are refering to the Civil war is it? If you think the U.S. is doing fine its obvious you must not be watching very close.

Maybe her child is going to work in France...

And if I had had to know spanish to hold my job, well I guess I'd been unemployed first. I'll learn a second language because I want to not because I have to in my country.

And...how many people died during the civil war? The Souths economy was left in ruins, societal structure was destroyed leaving room for the KKK to be born. And while they do wave their flags, you don't have their congressional representatives planning to secede. I understand that US history is probably not as near and dear to your heart as other histories, but still I am surprised you didn't know this.

Nonetheless, you didn't address the real point which is that without a unifying language a country is more apt to fragment as it does not have common ground. And to risk the US turning into two nations such as with Canada and Quebec all because illegal immigrants and their apologists as well as legal Spanish speaking immigrants are too stupid, too entitled and/or too stubborn to learn English is the height of folly.

But then it probably makes a lot of sense in a third world kind of way, no?

What are you talking about?

I don't address that point, because no language is taking over, and people are just bitching about translations being offered to newer immigrants.

LOLOLOLOLOL Only a fool would think that you even have the faintest idea about the Civil War or The War of Northern Agression. Maybe you should do some research so you wouldn't look so ignorant about such subjects. You do realize that the state of MO and KS were fighting a form of the Civil War a decade before the actual War started. Guess why? All because northerners came to the state and started trouble all because they got their noses involved in things that were none of their damn business.

Another thing...if you think our country is doing fine, then you show once again how little you really know.

And whose fault was it that the South was left in ruins? It was not anyone in the south. It was Sherman, a damn Yankee, who decided to tortue and burn and steal everything he came across. Please try to come up with something better than your lame argument because you are another one who knows very little about that war and why it happened in the first place. Get educated. After that, stop being a damn illegal lover. Try loving your country for once in your life.

That is not true, but then, with what I have seen you post just in this thread, you know very little of what you post about. We are bitching because their language is being allowed for any government business at all anywhere. On top of that there is not one damn American that should have to press any damn number to get the right person who actually speaks English. You know what? From your posts, I see more and more reasons why we homeschool our children, because the public education doesn't teach very much at all. I really wish you illegal lovers would learn how to research what you argue about before you make posts that show how uneducated about said subject matter you are.

How did I make myself look ignorant of the Civil War by bringing it up in one sentence?
If I think our country is doing fine, then I should should show once again how little I really know?
.....
Should I try to make sense of your spazzed out posts, or should I just keep walking?
