Golden rule apply here? Practice what you preach ? Unless you have a crystal ball or an ouija board stuffed up your ass you have no clue what anybody is trying to say. Somehow you don't sound like the pinnacle of intelligence yourself.

Whats that old saw about glass houses and throwing rocks? True colors indeed.......:

That I doubt.

Why I say that is China's poverty makes Mexico look like Malibu, Ca. by comparison. ca. 80-90% of all Chinese are essentially hillbillies.

We are discussing barely over 20 years here for China to get its act together.

There really is no harm in being bilingual or even trilingual. Learning another language is always good -- as an individual, it makes you more marketable. It doesn't have to be Spanish either; learn French, German or Chinese....I guarantee you'll benefit from it.

The Census people state that 47% of all children in the U.S. under the age of 5 are minorities. The Census takers don't calculate the number of illegals (around 11.2 million), so the numbers are far worse, I imagine. Those are sobering figures. I can't wrap my mind around them. That means that in just a few short years, our nation- what's left of it- is going to drastically change. I for one will not learn Spanish just because the Border Patrol won't do it's job.

+1.

It has gotten to the point that it sounds like shrill jibberish on the rare occasions that I hear it. I thank God everyday that my neighborhood has not been overrun with illegal aliens (especially spanish speakers). I have also figured out a way to get around hearing it when I have to call customer service.

Why should I learn Spanish when I have no interest what so ever in working at a fast food restaurant. Being fluent in Spanish is only important in the U.S if you are applying for a low pay minimum wage job that is dominated by illegal immigrants, like the fast food industry for example.

So just who is the ignorant one? Mexican spanish is bastardized castillian spanish. People from Spain can't even understand Mexcians. So people from Mexico speak Mexican spanish or just Mexican, if you will.

Ahh, to many people of color! Quick, lets take a page out of Nazi Germany and build up the white race! (sarcasm)
