Nonsense.I've been to Florida. And furthermore Miami. Spanish does not come before English. You're simply wrong. And even if it did, since their official language is English, that would make people who think they should get special treatment by not speaking English wrong.
In Miami, Spanish becoming primary language - US news - Life - msnbc.com
Nonsense.So we agree, then, that you didn't address any of my points and instead simply resorted to name-calling. Right.
That would be rude. Unfortunately, 1) We're not talking about a private setting and I've already said private citizens can't do what they want. 2) The guy had a translator - you really seem to keep missing this point.It's rude because he knows that in America people speak English, he was able to speak English, and didn't. My grandma's accent is way thicker than his. He probably could have gotten his point across clearer in English than he did using a translator. It's rude for the same reason it's rude for me to walk up to a German in Germany and speak in English, even though I know that most of them can speak English. I'm in there country where almost everyone speaks German.
Thanks for proving my point. It belongs to Americans, some of whom speak Spanish.Yeah, it belongs to Americans. Nearly all of whom speak English. Doesn't get too much more official than that.
Never said that.And it seems that even when it IS official, like in Florida (which by the way, does NOT acknowledge Spanish as a dual official language - it's only English), you still wish to deny that people should speak the official language where they live.
This would be valid criticism if I hadn't said this:So it doesn't matter to you whether it's official or not, which is what your entire argument hinges on. This shows me you have no argument - rather that you're too PC to just admit we speak English.
