90. Spanish, in the US. Part X.

Things that PISS ME OFF: Part X.


Forcing Spanish on US Citizens.


I'm definitely not as hard on this as most other right-wing wackos are. I fully understand the importance of speaking multiple languages. Infact, it's a little embarassing that just about all of my European and South American friends can speak, or at least try to speak, many languages including English.


But, when a different language is FORCED on a country, that's wrong. If you're moving to another country, you still have to give the effort to learn that language. I'm sure it's an inconvenience for those people, but it's definitely worse to force this on millions of others.


One of the toughest parts of finding a job in Arizona is the bilingual factor. I'd say at least 1/3 of the jobs I was looking at REQUIRED you to speak Spanish very well. And that's just getting higher and higher. Even in Western New York, which has amongst the lowest amount of Hispanics in the nation, had a significant amount of jobs requiring this. When it reaches this point, this is simply WRONG. My career and well-being should not be damaged because people don't want to learn a fucking language. If you don't want to learn English, stay in Mexico. Thanks.


After all, English is not my first language. And I speak it better than most people who've been here their entire life. Lazy fucks.

Nothing that wasn't expected to happen.


I disagree with it just as much as the next person, but I understand the ball has been rolling for some time now, and there's nothing I, you, or anyone else can do about it.
