    Is it just me, or has the drudgereport become like "newsmax" and a bit more "silly right" these past few years? It used to be a great aggregation site that broke interesting (and spiked) stories - now it seems to pander to the silliest elements of the far right. Similar things going on at Breitbart, which has become almost laughable in the past 3 years.

    These days, I have to fix my monocle on the WSJ to get any news American of real merit and passable editorial standard
    The article is from the UK based pulizer prize winning newspaper "The Guardian."

    They didn't rip it from anywhere, they cited a study... I suggest reading the article

    The report says there are 41 million native Spanish speakers in the US plus a further 11.6 million who are bilingual, mainly the children of Spanish-speaking immigrants. This puts the US ahead of Colombia (48 million) and Spain (46 million) and second only to Mexico (121 million).



    Wonderful news! This really is becoming a multicultural country like never before. Time to teach yourselves and your kids Spanish...
    I honestly don't see anything wrong with that, as a great number of Spanish speakers are citizens and speak English as well. But it is still not an excuse for illegal immigration or not securing the borders.

    I'd be in favor of mandatory Spanish classes for high school students, as opposed to the status quo of ambiguous foreign language classes being mandated. Having a bilingual population would certainly be beneficial for tourism and would bring advantages to the country in the global marketplace.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    We were better off when people had to learn our language rather than us learning the language of trash countries.
