    do the realities of foreign affairs and political interests confuse you?

    Seems to me Rubio has had more than enough time to define a 'some English' standard, he has no real interest in doing such because the line was just to feed the koolaid sippers.
    It may be a policy he has no real interest in persuing, but such would not 1) make it a bad idea and 2) make defining "some english" onerous.

    I am for citizenship for illegal aliens.
    I am for equal rights for all.
    I believe every human being to be of equal value.
    I view the USA as a nation of immigrants.
    I view this land as stolen from the American Indian.

    With all of that being said... In the USA we speak English. If you do not agree with that then you are a tourist. Nothing more.

    Well, I guess the thread is done then, right?

    I'm not sure the intent of the first amendment was to maintain itself as a bulwark against establishing an official language, and it would seem clear the utilitarian aspects of it would far out way any real concerns about free speech, which are rather stretching the concepts to it's limits to begin with.

    What I don't understand is why people think that just because you use another language in life that you don't know English. Why is it that singing this song in different languages is some how a problem for anyone? The commercial showed what America looks like in the vast majority of the communities in this country, what is wrong with that?

    YES!!!!!!!!! BRAVO!!!!!!! LIKE DOZENS of TIMES!!!!!!!!

    Why are people so f'n worked up about this?

    They're making GINORMOUS assumptions that anyone who speaks (or sings) in a language other than English is completely incapable of speaking (or singing) in English.


    That's just stupid.

    Bi-lingual.

    Some people need to look that term up in the dictionary.

    I'm not sure anyone made such an assumption.

    There were a series of posts about immigrants being unable to speak English before the thread was dragged entirely off-topic and descended in to the general immigration hate-fest.
