What does everyone here think of making english the official language of the USA??
One thing that irks me about the language thing is the fact that we PAY people to speak different languages so people can collect public assistance...
My ancestors did not speak english, they learned it...and when they had interaction with gov't officials, they brought along a friend who helped. Be it Polish, German, or Italian, they made it here without gov't translator's or welfare for that matter.
We assimilated. Why can't the newly immigrated?
(I have this overwelming urge to say Resistance is Futile)
Bilingual education of nonenglish speaking children is a whole other topic.
What do you think?
