Nothing for anyone to lose their Panties over. Words have always been mispelled ? and some times on purpose to see if anyone catches on. I do thet accasionally...surprisingly many do not catch it.

The English language is derived from other languages such as Latin/French/German/Spanish.

Whats the big deal...we are always using SLANG for a better word that is derived from connecting two words...dropping a letter or adding some. After about 35 yrs of usage they are added to the dictionary.

I use a current dictionary (circa 1936). Steve

Open the employment section of the newspaper at any mayor US city, and you'll be surprised to see the huge amount of ads looking for bilingual(english/spanish) candidates....

What would be funny (and sad) to see bilingual Spanish/English 'Help Wanted' ads in Mexican newspapers.

Although there may be a call for that as Mexico continues to implode.

Yes, and this is the direct result of massive illegal immigration by Spanish speakers. Now native English speakers are being discriminated against for jobs to pander to illegal alien Spanish speakers.

Adopt Spanish to cater to illegal aliens? I don't think so! Thanks for being so caring about your fellow American's being discriminated against for jobs because of your illegal amigos insisting on being catered to in their language and for crossing our border illegally which created this situation in the first place. You don't have a conscience?

By the way, assimilation means the foreigner assimilates to the host country, not the other way around. Educate yourself.

The king for hostility against hispanics, fat lou dobbs was silenced by the spanish community, the redicals are growing desperate, the spanish inquisition lives!!!!!.......
