society, they just don't know it........
I thought it was funny because of the incredibly poor English in fish's post. I generally try to avoid grammar-smack, but I guess a post concerning the importance of using English correctly is fair game. Ha!

Adopting Spanish as a secondary official language would not turn America into Mexico. That is just silly talk.

These issues are beyond the topic of this thread. Here we are only concerned with making Spanish an official language of the U.S.

1. No. What's next? Release murderers from prison? Don't reward the criminals. Also, why would we want 20 Mil. highly uneducated people here?

2. No, it's not silly talk. this is the United States of America, not United States of Mexico.

3. Maybe you should start reading my post correctly. The you will see that it has something to do with this thread.

Whats essentially being proposed here is that we adopt part of the lifestyle of the criminals/illegal aliens in order to understand and negotiate with them, and encourage them to legalize themselves. (which they cannot do unless WE/our govt. are complicit in this act) The reason that this idea is silly is for the same reason that it is silly to suggest that if each of us would only learn how to live as a fugitive and lurk around street corners ourselves and maybe even make murdering a part of our every day lifestyle, it would encourage murderers and robbers to stop murdering others and assimilate to civility. It sounds nonsensical in that context, and it is nonsensical in the context that it is being proposed here.

The point is easy, if you want to be successful in the usa, learn spanish, which is our "de facto" second language, and your chances for success will certainly increase......

You were just kidding around. Weren't you?
Kidding? I think not. The language of the USA is English despite the pathetic attempts of multiculturalists to change it.

As it is: it would make more sense for Mexico to mandate that English be an official language-----------it would give Mexicans a leg up worldwide.

The former came here legally under the laws of the time----------and, quite a few candidates were rejected at Ellis Island and had to return home.

If anything: our immigration laws needed to be revert to something comparable to pre 1965----------and, kept there for a generation (or two).

Do not underestimate the pressure and political power that a monolytic group of 50 million legal US citizens have, amnesty will take place without a doubt, my recomendation to you, learn spanish pronto.....
