On this day, Independence Day, I can think of nothing more appropriate than the “English Only” issue and the erosion of the American Lifestyle. Thirty states now have laws specifying that official government communications be in English. It is a start and it is multiplying tremendously, but it still needs to get done, it needs to be officially instituted and put into working order. We need to keep stoking the firebox on this issue, and get up a good head of steam and take it to Washington DC.
Some folks believe that this issue sends a hostile message to newcomers. It just poisons the atmosphere in local communities. Not so. Studies out have proven conclusively that newcomers that learn the language fare much better than those that hold onto the language of where it is they came from.
All this politically correct non-sense, catering to illegals, pandering to Mexicans and accepting Spanish as a second language, is not good for this country. A word to the newcomers. It is also not good for America to try and change it into some satellite clone of the country of your origin.
In a way it does poison the country, it is detrimental to the American Lifestyle and our way of life, it is in fact, “Anti American.”
Ohio approved a bill making English the official language. Oklahoma is working on it. Missouri will decide this fall on an amendment to their constitution.
I don’t give two hoots in you know where what you talk about in your own home, I don’t give a flying whatever the language you use, but when it comes to government, official business, you need to be speaking English.
You want to live here, then the first word you need to learn is “Assimilate” which means to blend in, focus on what everyone around you is speaking.
If you don’t consider this important or just another rant, consider this. You are lying prostrate on the ground, you have a searing burning in your chest and left arm, you tell the person looking down at you, “I have pills in my pocket (for your heart) you beg them ….. please …..”
Now do you want some foreigner standing there looking at you like a calf who is looking a new gate for the first time … Or … Do you want someone who speaks English.
Laws never cover everything, but in this case, they should be covering voter rights, driver’s lic., zoning forms and day to day activities in this country. It is time … High time … we all get on the same page about this issue. This country has been around over 230 years, and it was all done on ONE LANGUAGE and that is the bottom line, that is where the rubber meets the road.
Washington needs to wake up and smell the coffee. Thirty states are now saying … We want this. 19 others have pending legislation; it is time to do something about this.
Enjoy your Fourth of July, they may be numbered “Amigo’s.”
