    Very revealing
    And? We are the single largest non-Hispanic population group.

    Your opinion on Coke's version of America The Beautiful? [W:1014]-slide_02_pies-jpg

    No other group is expected to hold the kind of dominant minority status that the Hispanic block will see in coming decades.

    Are you familiar with the concept that latino children can be americans?
    Are you familiar with the manner in which they have so far failed to assimilate, and will only become more likely to do so as their proportion of the overall population increases?

    No, I'm wisely noting that Lebanon does not have an immigration problem.
    It experienced demographic shift, which resulted in ethnic tensions and ultimately civil war which left the country in the hands of radical Muslim extremists.

    Incidentally, a large part of the reason for this demographic shift did center around Palestinian refugees fleeing into Lebanon from Israel.

    Correlation does not equal causation.

    Smarter people learn second languages precisely because they are smarter in the first place. Not everyone can do that.

    You have not provided any evidence whatsoever to suggest that nations which speak more than one language are any more stable or productive than those which have a set primary language.

    I'm asking you what "white Hispanic" means to you. I've already explained that it seems pretty self-explanatory to me. I think most people would understand what it means. I think its quite a stretch that somehow "white Hispanic" can be equated with "Caucasian" which is what Rocketman was claiming when you chimed in. So....since it doesn't appear self explanatory to you, I'm wondering what does it mean to you. Do you agree with Rocketman that it means "Caucasian"?

    And?

    And it's dishonest to claim that your concern is about immigration when your true concern is about white people remaining the majority

    Are you familiar with the manner in which they have so far failed to assimilate, and will only become more likely to do so as their proportion of the overall population increases?
    No, I am not familiar with things that are not true.


    Correlation does not equal causation.

    Says the guy who uses correlation to make arguments about STD rates, single motherhood, the effects of declining population, the benefits of marrying in your 20's, and even Lebanon!!

    Stop being so hypocritical.

    Zippy Pinheads are bizarre in their collectivism for some new and cool. The great liberal movement for decades was to promote a universal world language to eliminate the language barriers between people with the view to best way to avoid conflict and to accomplish the most was if all people could communicate with each other.

    BUT because do-anything-for-a-vote NOW "liberals" demand that people be unable to communicate with each other, figuring to get the Latino vote this way.

    To argue against all people being able to communication with each other is outright radical bigotry and nothing else.

    actually the last time I researched the topic the current wave of Mexican immigrants, given their lower skill and education level are actually taking longer to assimilate and are experiencing more long term economic hardships because of it

    lol, for some reason I doubt an appeal to the founding fathers and how they lived in a country vastly different than present america would fly on any other subject with you

    Many of us have already given several examples of how not being able to communicate with one another can have detrimental effects, especially regarding jobs like the construction industry. Not only is it dangerous for the non-English speaker but for all those who have to work around/with him/her. Not being able to read and write in English, living in America, is a sure-fire way to end up in abject poverty. Once you are there it's not so easy to escape. It's just in everyone's best interest and it isn't an outrageous request like some are making it out to be. There are way too many brainwashed politically correct pussies in this country IMO.
