    If you really don't care, why are debating?

    Dayum.

    Really, priority one? Above finding a job? Above providing for your family? Above all the day to day neccessities for life?

    Why doesn't it even affect you if other people don't learn English? If anything, it screws them and not you.

    Well gosh, Redress, let's see.... if I'm going to be doing job interviews with people who speak something other than English, and working with people who don't speak English, I damn sure better learn to speak THEIR language in THEIR country! I'm fairly sure I can do more than one thing at a time, too.


    If I can't understand what the boss says or what my coworkers say, I got problems don't I?

    Not when BOTH Spanish and English are used in "emergency" PSA bulletins interrupting TV shows, as it more than doubles the time to get the message out. It seems if the cable company has ANY Spanish stations then all of the PSA BS is in both languages; when did this happen and WHY? Not when BOTH Spanish and English are placed on ALL food product ingredient labels and cooking instructions making the font size drop to nearly microscopic. IFF English is the official language then MANDATE its exclusive use in this country. Place the multi-lingual versions on a website to allow others "access", but do not ruin the readability for ALL just to appease some.

    The jobs you would most likely be going for, not speaking english would not be a barrier. So which are you going to do Goshin, work and take care of your family, or go to classes for English?

    Isn't it funny how it is so easy to expect every one else to do more than they are willing to do themselves?

If you're not active nor active in a compatible way, liberals really enjoy making a popular appeal to emotional misery, expecting those who feel differently to conform or be institutionalized.

    I suspect this is why liberals support universal health care, welfare, environmental regulation, demographic equality, and labor reform. Ultimately, it's a psychological issue. Liberals just don't understand (or care) how different people can feel differently. They don't realize how everyone isn't born with fiery emotional gumption, and resist letting "cold" people take their time, planning out how to live their own lives.

    It's like they deliberately want to sabotage cool minds in order to prevent them from getting ahead. That way, they become dependent on bureaucracy to fix their problems and help them assimilate into society. Besides, bureaucrats need jobs too. If it ain't broke, and you're a repairman, you need to break something in order to fix it.
    I believe both left and right have emotionalized certain arguments in order to get their way. Both sides, I believe, frown upon intellectualism and people actually thinking for themselves. Do the Democrats do it? Sure, but so do the Republicans. Peas in a pod. Every time you point your finger, you should know that 3 point back at you.

    So, you're just entitled and mad that companies are making business decisions according to demographics. As I suspected, there is no real affect on people's lives by what language other people choose to speak. The things you listed are the kinds of things people CHOOSE to have a problem with.

    Definitely.

    There are lots of hotheaded anti-intellectual "conservatives" out there...

    ...but these people come off more as national socialists than actual conservatives. Rarely do they actually respect organic society. They expect everyone to be workaholic industrialists, and have very little respect for people who want to relax at a slower pace.

    If you've ever lived down south, this would be very obvious to you. Southern conservatives and northern "conservatives" (really just big business Rockefeller Republicans) are nothing close to the same.
