Another Sign We Need English as the Official Language

The Democrats held a debate in Spanish at the University of Miami. The Spanish language television station sponsored it and translated questions from people who do not mind coming to America and benefiting from the kindness of its citizens and its opportunities but who do not have enough courtesy to learn the language.

Of course it is difficult for people to learn our language because there is no incentive to do so. We spend a lot of money printing every damned thing in English and Spanish and making sure that we do not inconvenience these poor folks who must think the world owes them something. It is tough because people like Bill Richardson of New Mexico think it is a shame that people are foced to listen to English:

“I’m disappointed today that 43 million Latinos in this country — for them not to hear one of their own speak Spanish, is unfortunate,” Richardson said. “In other words, Univision is promoting English-only in this debate.” Washington Post

Bill, what do you mean for them not to hear ONE OF THEIR OWN? Are you not an American Citizen? You must be because you are running for the presidency so what is this ONE OF THEIR OWN crap? This is America you jackass and English is the language that we speak here. I am disappointed that a debate was held for Spanish speaking people and that they were not forced to speak English or not participate in the process.

Richardson does not deserve to be president of this country and if he thinks that he is ONE OF THEIRS then maybe he should go to one of those tin pot Central or South American countries and run for president there.

This country needs to make English the official language and force people to learn it if they are going to live here. I am tired of people getting off crimes because they did not understand. I am tired of them working in places where they provide customer service but cannot provide any service because they do not speak ENGLISH. I am able to communicate a few things in Spanish but I absolutely refuse to do so. If I want a straw or a napkin I should not have to play charades in order to get the point across. If I wanted to use sign language I would go to an establishment that employs deaf people.

Here is what I have to say to those who feel as Richardson does:

Aprenda el inglés o sace el infierno

  1. Stop with the European imports man and learn Ute, or whatever Native American language is local to your area. If you find it difficult to learn or even find any practical use for it… well tough. You need to stretch your mind a little.
