If you tried that with me I would tell you in no uncertain terms to MYOB. In English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese AND Spanish.

There ain't no law that legislates anyone to act on your being triggered by hearing Spanish. So deal with it, or just go have a Diet Coke and a smile.
If I have to increasingly listen to more and more people making incoherent, loud and unpleasant speech, then it is my business why that is. The reason why it is because of open borders and mass, global immigration. That is my business.

Nope. Plenty of US citizens are Spanish speakers. Plenty of them were around in your grandfather's time and before then. You'll just have to keep getting triggered and upset. Not a way to live, amigo.

Kindly go choke on your nativism and xenophobia.
No not plenty of them were around in the late 1800s and early 1900s, and they still don't speak English? Besides I'm talking about the tens of millions that came since I was born, or even the few million, legal and illegal, that came just this past year

Well, the folks around in the late 1800s and early 1900s aren't alive today. LOL!

Just because people speak Spanish doesn't mean they don't speak English.
Ever heard of bilingualism? Multilingualism? Who cares anyway? That's their own business.

Maybe they don't want to speak it around folks like you - and for good reason.

People can make incoherant, loud and unpleasant speeches in any language. It's not a cultural thing.

That's actually quite descriptive of that person now usurping the White House, Donald Trump. Who is as incoherant, crude, rude and unpleasant as anyone today.

Is this a joke? I hope you were being sarcastic. If not, I don't see how anyone with such a snowflake mentality can make it to the grocery store and home without being repulsed.

Good GAWD our country is falling apart fast.


To the OP: The soldier served our country. That is the talking point, not their dialect or language. If I met this person (in uniform) the only words I would have for them are "thank you" and other words of gratitude. (EDIT: I might even muster up a very sincere "Gracias" for this person.)

You are going to HATE debate season. Trump will make at least a dozen incoherent, loud and unpleasant speeches in the months leading up to the election. I hear that Pasole or Menudo can be good comfort food, you should look into it.

You can't. The foreigners are often loud and unpleasant sounding, maybe on purpose, and not too pleasant to behold with their tendency of odd staring and mean mugging. You sometimes can't go to the park either you went to and paid for many years and enjoy it because, large gatherings of illegals are making so much loud racket and cranking up tijuana and mariachi music. Open borders has completely transformed the atmosphere in public, let alone the economic hit to average Americans.

It's supposedly a good cure for hangovers. That particular poster is going to need it.

He's speaking in English and I don't have to listen to the debates. But I do have to listen to incoherent, loud, unpleasant speech every where I go now thanks to open borders. If Trump condemns open borders in a speech, in English mind you, then that is just music to my ears.
