    That adds considerable expense, mainly for the benefit of "undocumented" immigrants. It also removes one more incentive for only Spanish speaking folks to learn English. Living in central Texas I do speak a fair amount of Spanish but assuming that to be normal places "immigrants" from Ohio at a disadvantage.

    Many of the immigrants to the United States in the past 30 years don't have the intelligence to learn English. They're not here to speak, they're here to destroy the American culture and they've done that very well and been well rewarded by the Liberals.

    Yes, that's why they're here.

    Immediate leap to mindless ridicule. Definitely struck a nerve there.

    Well, i will say this; she is the most productive worker on my team. But her not being able to speak english (very well... at all) cripples overall prpductivity and takes more time and poses potential safety hazards.

    i think this is a bit extreme. Most immigrants are very productive people. I dont know why so many of them dont just learn the damn language. If i went to live in mexico (hypothetically of course. I have no interest in that ****hole), i would make it a top priority to learn spanish for several reasons. I think they are intelligent enough to learn english, but people have overaccomodated so much, i guess some just dont care to.

    Yea, especially those damned Canadians!

    I didn't leap to mindless ridicule, I was dragged along.
