    Living in poverty is getting by in modern day America. Even for English speaking Americans. Actually, even English speaking immigrants live in poverty. It's why we have thousands of Jamaicans and Africans driving cabs in NYC/LA. Again, this is absolutely normal and not contrary to historical patterns. First generation immigrants? Poor and hard working. It doesn't how much they pretend they assimilate. 2nd generation? Better off. It may do you some good to pick up some books on immigration patterns.

    Did I ever say that people shouldn't learn more than one language?

    I speak a smattering of two or three myself.

    You claimed that having a primary language for a nation resulted in "intellectual stagnation." Prove it, or concede the point.

    Yea... "Common sense" really isn't high on too many Liberals' priority lists, apparently.

    Very revealing



    Are you unfamiliar with the concept of a "trend?"

    Latino children to make up bigger share of population by 2050, study says
    Are you familiar with the concept that latino children can be americans?



    So you're sticking to blindly ignoring the facts surrounding Lebanese demographic shift!!
    No, I'm wisely noting that Lebanon does not have an immigration problem.

    What a simplistic analysis. BEING bilingual versus learning another language are not the same at all. You don' grasp that distinction, do you? If a person grows up where multiple languages are spoken they interact with, that actually is just one language.

    This may come as a shock to you, but in fact English is not only a bilingual language, but a multilingual language. Most languages are.

    Where schools try to teach in both Spanish and English, those students do significantly worse in all testing categories.

    I just did. It has been shown that people who speak multiple languages are smarter. A nation of monolingual speakers? We'll end up like France, Spain and England. Dying populations of ignorant high school drop outs complaining that multilingual speakers overseas are taking our jobs. Wait...

    SO let me see if I understand what you're saying

    If you speak multiple languages that are not english, you're monolingual

    But if you speak one language that is english, you're mutilingual.


    How did I do?
