I wonder how many "Americans" who travel abroad learn the other
languages (fluently) of the countries they reside in for anywhere from
a few weeks to a few years?
Sounds like a bad case of intolerence to me. These people are trying
to eat and feed their families. My wife's ancestors came from Poland.
They never lost their accents till they died. They never learned
fluent English, but they got by. The kids learned "American" English,
which is often not that great anyway.
Neither did mine. As a result, I'm pretty happy that there were merchants

I've got a better beef. Every presidential candidate should be vetted by a

Let's see....they print them in Chinese because Chinese citizens contribute
something positive to the society, and pay taxes. I wonder why some people
have problems extending that concept to Hispanics? Or, "Hispanicals", as a
certain George likes to say.
I have to agree with the majority here, they should learn English and be
here legally. Someone wrote lettace would go up to $3 from $1, well
that's OK if their unpaid medical bills go down from $1000's to zero.
By the way, I went by my HD here in S.GA and proud to report that a
large US flag is flying in the center top of the building and I didn't
really notice any Spanish on the signs inside.......Thank God !!!!
