Just heard on the Fox news that they reported a Home Depot store that
required (1) all inside signs had to have the Spanish equalivent under
the English heading and (2) it was against store policy to fly the
American flag anywhere on the store property.
Enough is enough about the illegal Mexicans but has anyone heard this
about HD ?
yep...lowes is the same way...sometimes the spanish signs are more
prominant that the english signs....
Look on a lot of products now...Ive seen major appliances heating and
air equipment...everything from these major items down to a bar of soap
with spanish on them.'
Fat lazy americans refused to do the work...mexicans came in and did
the jobs for nothing....american fat cat businessmen love exploiting
this cheap labor....
nothing our government does will stop the invasion of illegal mexicans
in this country...and I dont think government really wants to stop the
massive immigration....large farms and the construction industry have
powerfull lobbyists too and you know they are greasing the palms of our
elected officials to get these mexicans here.
That also makes it a lot easier to export products south of the border.
Similarly, you'll find plenty of consumer goods with directions and
labeling in French, so they can be exported to Canada with the same
labeling. My new U.S.-made double oven even has installation
instructions in Japanese, not that we have lots of illegal Japanese
labor in the U.S., but because Japan is a major export market.
Despite all the rhetoric to the contrary, the U.S. is still a huge
manufacturing power that exports all over the world.

Why do you think it has anything to do with illegal Mexicans. Home
Depot wants to meet their customer's needs. If they have Spanish speaking
customers, it only makes sense that they provide signs for them. How does
that hurt you? More business, more volume lower prices benefit you. Do you
think they are going to eliminate the English signs?
This is America. English is spoken here. You want to speak your native
language, speak it at home amongst your friends and relatives. My parents,
their families and millions of others came here many years ago. They had to
learn the language and went to night schools to do so. They still spoke
their native tongues at home but learned to read and write English and
always spoke to the children in English. We have immigrants from many parts
of the world. Why not have signs in their languages? We have Russian,
Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, etc. Why do we pander to the Hispanics? Why do
we have to pay for bilingual teachers to accomadate them when we can't
afford to hire English speaking teachers to educate our children?
the Latinos that come here to the US are from "America". South America,
Central America. They speak other languages. I agree English is spoken
mostly in the US but we [US] don't own the word "America". We are all
"Americans" [yes that includes Canadians]
[soapbox mode off]
Not true and you know it. America is an
abbreviation of the United States of America. No
other country in North, Central, or South American
have "American" in the title of the country. So
it is quite clear when when says "America" they
mean the USA. If you don't want to believe that
you are just being obtuse.
no it is not
No other country in North, Central, or South
not to anyone in the rest of the "Americas" outside of the US
If you don't want to
United States of "America" is one of many countries in the "Americas".
Try telling someone from any other country in the "Americas" that they
are not "American" and see how far you get with them. You are the one
that is obtuse and US centric. We are all "Americans" whether you like
it or not
There's a big difference between what's correct in terms of geography, and
saying someone is "American", which indicates nationality, political
loyalties and certain ways of thinking. Do *not* try and claim that the
second half of that sentence applies in any way outside of the USA.
You are confused. A person from florida is a floridian. A person from
Texas is a Texan. They may be a democrat or a republican. A person
from the anywhere in the "Americas" is an "American" Do *not* try to
use your US political correctness to redefine words used by the rest of
the world because that only works in your little xenophobic reality
while the internet crosses those boundaries and that is where you are
postulating now. :)
No, because he is not a citizen of the "United States of America"which
is located on the continent of North America, and is a country, not a
continent. In fact, Some of the "United States of America" is not even
located in America at all. Nonetheless, someone who is a citizen of
Bolivia is an American.
We call Native Americans from North America "Indians", although
relatively few have ever been to India.
