    Nope, it's not.

    And thanks, I'm multi.

    Although I suspect that equips me merely to express myself in more languages than one, not necessarily proof of what I say being intelligent.

    But, I guess, sufficiently so as not to call other languages as coming from trash countries.

    Actually some form of Chinese is better.

    Immigrants are not required to learn English, STOP ****ING LYING. My friend is a teacher in inner city Houston...80 something percent of his students are Mexicans..guess who doesnt know English? The kids parents.

    How is a bilingual population more competitive if English is the required language AS IT SHOULD BE???????? Why do WE as Americans have to accommodate spanish illegal alien border jumpers in our own ****ing country? Talk about some backwards logic....wow.

    See response to WSUwarrior. What exactly is wrong with having a bilingual population in the first place?
    What is the benefit? Come here and learn our language or get the **** directly out.

    A simple google search could've shown you that immigrants are required to learn English.

    How is a bilingual population more competitive if English is the required language AS IT SHOULD BE???????? Why do WE as Americans have to accommodate spanish illegal alien border jumpers in our own ****ing country? Talk about some backwards logic....wow.

    Are you under the impression that illegal immigrants are the only people on the planet who speak Spanish?
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.
