    Sure it does... it alerts people to your trolling. When you post something about immigration that makes sense and isn't racist I will treat you as if you matter.

    ...and this coming from the guy that just passed up all the TJ Hooker and Steven Seagal comments

    Re: Can America be considered a British child?

    I posted a legitimate grievance with the assumption that English is the national language of the USA-- which it isn't. That is not off topic nor a derail. What is a derail is making obnoxious remarks directed towards me with no relation to the topic and for no other reason than a personal vendetta against me over being called out on bigotry by me weeks ago in another thread with a similar topic.

    I was going to ask a question, but I see the thread already went stupid before I had a chance.

    Can America be considered a British child?
    The United States is the precocious and petulant eldest son of the British Empire that ran off on his own for a while then returned to take his place as the head of the family once he matured into manhood. Canada can be said to be the eldest sister while Australia and New Zealand are little brothers. Japan is the adopted child.

    Doubtful. The master does not usually adopt the language of the help as his primary language, even if he learns to speak it fluently. Indeed, it is usually the other way around where the help adopts the language of the master as a matter of practical necessity.

    In a way, yes, although not as much as Australia and Canada as they're not part of the Commonwealth.

    Your mistake is in assuming that the Spanish speakers will not soon become the masters themselves. They will, inevitably, and those bigots who see Spanish speakers as merely "the help," unable to adapt, will be lost underfoot.

    Your delusional conclusion that I am a bigot would be comical except you actually believe it. Makes it kinda sad, to be honest.

    YOu are threadjacking the topic because you are like chicken little... "the bigots are coming the bigots are coming!!" Want to respect and enfore law you are a BIGOT... NOOOOOO!!!
