For everyone bitching about labels and signs being in spanish, get the fuck over it. Companys decide to post in multiple langauges because they want there business. It is there choice. I can understand being frustrated over them coming into your job and you not being able to understand them, but if a company wants to do this it is there right. I also think this language gap is the most retarded and bigoted pile of shit of have ever heard. Thats just my opinion.

It's not that hard to learn two langauges. Even for slow learners. Come the fuck on, where's the effort people?

Well I don't agree with the whole NAU thing or whatever but I don't think it would hurt to learn a new language.

sure thing I will try to contact her and see if I can get her to put it online, although haven't talked to her in 3 or so years... and I am very serious about that trust me your not the only one who was shocked when they saw it. Its quite an extreme view.

Yeah I agree about learning other languages...but I don't understand why they shouldn't do the same

I never had a problem with private companies labeling in multiple languages. Hell, they should have the right to not even put it in English. My concern is public signs.

I believe Americans should learn a second language and that it should be Spanish as it is the most useful here. However, my problem was people coming to this country and not learning English. I'd imagine you'd agree with me that they should learn a second language too (being English)?

Sure thing, but it needs to go both ways. We don't have an official language an quite frankly I don't think we need one. Whichever language ends up naturally being more popular in the end will simply win out and that's that. Like... I don't think there ought to be a lot of whining about a language barrier or anything. Everyone ought to learn at least 2 foreign languages.

I think we should have guard posts set up as a perimeter around the borderline of Texas. Any illegal trespassers would be shot with a tranquilizer gun and sent back to where they came from. Problem solved with illegal immigration =]

And as for a second language, I don't really think Spanish should be forced onto people. I think Russian would be much better.

The solution?

Take a firm Patrick Buchanan line, close the boarder and expel the illegals.

A massive influx of people who often refuse to learn the language of commerce and hold cultural attitudes that are basically designed themselves in poverty will only lead to a massively lopsided society with an immensely wealthy but dwindling white minority living amidst a massive poverty stricken Hispanic majority.

Seriously, the state is already going broke, the welfare system simply is not going to last. This is nothing like traditional mass migration to America, this is more akin an ethnic reclamation of the land and the expansion of Mexico. This is how millions of Mexicans see it.

YOU DO NOT ANNEX ENTIRE UNINDUSTRIALIZED COUNTRIES UNLESS THEY HAVE RIDICULOUS RAW MATERIALS TO FUND THEIR INDUSTRIALIZATION. Stop talking out of your ass, taking over Mexico is one of the worst ideas on the face of the Earth. It would be more worthwhile to spend the next 50 years fighting in Iraq.

And after all, aren't your experiences a default basis for your every argument?

You argue that if Americans visit somewhere they aren't expected to learn the language and QED Mexicans that live in the States for multiple years and aquire jobs aren't either.

Her reply is that learning Spanish just because you wish to visit Mexico isn't comparable to Mexicans living and working in the United States for years and refusing to learn the common language.

Your rejoinder is that Americans you know didn't learn Japanese when they visited Japan.

What? Who the fuck was talking about Japan, or tourism? We were talking about illegal immigration in the United States and the refusal of said immigrants to learn the indigenous language. We're not talking about soldiers serving a tour of duty for a year and then returning home. Stop conflating entirely different words for purposes of excusing your demagoguery. This entire thread, along with your argument, is yet another one of your elaborate fantasy scenarios that serves no other purpose than giving you artistic license to indefinitely manipulate arguments that are byproducts of your raw feelings.

Fucking terrible.

Why? How does this effect you in any way, shape, or form? Seriously. Is it a strain on your eyes to figure out which part of the sign is in Spanish, and which part is in English? If a sign is important enough to put up, I would hope the sign does as much as possible to reach as many of the targeted audience as possible. It would seem irresponsible to intentionally neglect such a large portion of the population because "Dem spiks need know Anglish!".

I think all signs should be put up in English and Spanish, this would aide both sides in learning eachothers languages. It would be like taking Rosetta Stone on the road.

We need a police force to control population growth too obviously. The world obviously cannot sustain its current population growth for much longer. I'd just like to see things move closer towards the formation of a 1 world government, that's all.

The world won't have 1 government until a nation takes it upon themselves to kick everyone else's ass and annex them into a single country. Then they will go about cultural purging that will eliminate the fundamental differences that divide nations. At that point, yes, 1 government is sustainable and feasible. Until that point, there will always be at minimum 2 of everything.

Europeans tried to do that for hundreds of years and succeeded fairly well in some parts of the world.
