I'll vote for English and allowing only Legal Immigrants into the USA.
It is not bitterness and it is certainly not irrelevant.The times-
they are'a changing!All across the nation citizens are weary of the
lack of enforcement of immigration laws by the Federal Government; now local
governments are taking matters into their own hands.For awhile
illegal aliens will be able to find areas where enforcement is still slack
(venido! Utah!) but eventually all the corners will be swept clean.The chaos is going to be shipped back where it came from. magnificent! no?
When you say "American are weary of their generous welcoming spirit being
blatantly abused and their laws flaunted and ignored" (please note that I assume
you mean "Americans" and not American and I also assume you mean "flouted" and
not "flaunted") for whom do you speak? What group identifies with your fears
and hates? No one controls the cultural amalgam that is the USA. What we are
witnessing is a magnificent example of chaos at work. So, either sit back and
enjoy the ride until you leave this mortality, or spew forth your intolerance
and stew in your irrelevant bitterness.
The Law of the Land:"Applicants for naturalization must be able to read,
write, speak, and understand words in ordinary usage in the English
language."What WILL change is that English will be made the official
language of the nation, a long overdue reform.American are weary of
their generous welcoming spirit being blatantly abused and their laws flaunted
and ignored.You are partially right, my friend, change is coming.Stew on that.
"It is not BIGOTRY to expect people to meet minimum requirements in exchange for
the privilege of being a citizen."Again, you don't make the rules
concerning how society works. In the past 50 years countless changes have
occurred from what was once normative to what is current practice. As bigots
die their attitudes die with them. That is reality. Stew in your bitterness or
get on with your own life's purpose and leave others alone. . .
English IS the language of the land, period. Those who refuse to learn to speak,
write and read it, don't have my sympathy!
If someone comes into my practice to receive care and does not speak English and
expects me to treat them it is my business.If they show up at the
courthouse to transact business and my tax dollars have to pay for a translator
it is my business.If they show up at my kids school and they have to
discontinue teaching Japanese and Calculus to hire teachers to teach people
English it is my business.If they can't read road signs and cause an
accident and kill my family it is my business.If they can't cast an
informed ballot because they don't know what is happening in the country and
community it is my business.Need I go on?It is not
BIGOTRY to expect people to meet minimum requirements in exchange for the
privilege of being a citizen.Under the law one has to demonstrate
proficiency in English to become a citizen.Is it bigotry to expect
everyone to drive on the same side of the road?Is it bigotry to expect
everyone to get the same vaccines?It is IDIOCY not to establish one
diversity is a wonderful thing, but if you are from a different country and
decided to make America your home, please learn to speak English. There are
classes out there that you can take to learn the English language....
"Tolerating substantial nonEnglish speaking segments within the country is a
huge impediment to the orderly function of our nation and society."It is none of your business what language people speak--they have as much
right to speak whatever language they choose as do you. The USA is based on
allowing peoples from anywhere in the world access to come and live and make a
meaningful life. There are no religious requirements, no language requirements,
nothing. All can strive to achieve whatever his or her goal may be. And
bigotry, such as yours, is decreasing with each year as more and more elitist
bigots die. . . You don't make the rules--society is in a constant flux.
Either learn to adapt or stew in your bitterness. . .
Very well stated! Common sense says we need to have a common language in this
country. We used to understand that. However, with everything "traditional"
being defined as "racist," the hard left will not be moved by common sense.
According to their goofiness, physicians and everyone else need to learn every
language in the world to solve the "language barrier."
CONTINUED........What makes America great is her unity- unity in
values and goal and practices.When we decided to forge 13 weak
colonies (diversity) into a United State we set out on the path we continue
today. We have common laws, language, cultural values. It is and has been a
great advantage.Europe has struggled for centuries to achieve what
we are blessed with.We do not appreciate or value what we have
inherited however, seemingly willing to trade our birthright of unity for a mess
of diversity porridge.A common language is an indispensable
prerequisite to maintaining our unity. It facilitates commerce within our
country. It allows the sharing of ideas and discussion of issues.It
is impossible to overstate how foolish we are to fritter away that advantage.Tolerating substantial nonEnglish speaking segments within the country
is a huge impediment to the orderly function of our nation and society.Anyone who deals with it already appreciates that fully.It compromises
delivery of healthcare as the article notes.It bogs education down to the
detriment of the students.It makes judicial and other civil intercourse
more expensive and ineffective.We must preserve a common national
Some in our society have developed a fetish for diversity. It is to be promoted,
subsidized, forced, worshiped.It is, however, an empty and misguided
obsession.Empty because it belabors the obvious- we are all unique and
different. Not because of the superficial trapping the diversity crowd worship-
skin color, gender, language- but because we are all unique souls with unique
ideas and thoughts. You just have to look deeper than the surface to recognize
it. It is what Dr King meant when he said he hoped people would be valued for
their character and not their skin color.Misguided because it is not our
diversity that raises us up as a people, it is our unity. It is to the extent
that we come together in purpose and belief that we become strong and free. It
is the difference between a mob and a nation. Divided we are a tangle of
threads, individually weak, useless as a tangle. Unite in purpose and vision and
the threads are woven into a rope of great use and strength.This is all a
verbose introduction to the point which is America and what makes her great.CONTINUED.....
