I saw an American flag on the bag of a truck one day that said

"If you don't like my flag call 1-800-leave-USA"

I like that flag. Thinking about getting one myself.

I love this picture because it reminds me of all the times i have to call someplace down here in Texas and it tells me to press one for english or stay on the line for spanish. SHouldnt that be the other way around? I mean shouldnt the EXTRA option be for it to speak spanish.

Well I was watching that show "30 days" and when the brits took over the many couuntries they did over time, like India. They forced all govt and therefor many other places... to speak english. That is why India is the 3rd largest english speaking country in the world. makes ya think...

Oh and I got one too!

Hey... I will for-go what I believe is my natural right to speak english EVERYWHERE in the world for I learn the native tongue if I live elsewhere. I only expect the same.

Its easy...

On vacation... speak whatever
Living in a forgeign country...speak the native tongue

PERIOD!

There are 2 sides of this story in which I am torn. If the initiation of the "English Only" language as our national language is done for good and moral causes than I am all for it. FOr example, if people want to enact it to preserve our common language and avoid ethnic strife or to impose a sense of national unity and civic responsibility, then I am all for it.

But if the reasoning that people have for making it the national language is to fan animosity toward immigrants and build support for tighter quotas or bigots seeking to roll back civil rights advances for language-minority groups than I am totally against it. Another one reason that I would be against it is if Americans feel threatened by diversity, among other unsetting changes. We need to diversify this country like our four fathers were doing.

So in turn, I am tossed on this subject.
