I want to get everybody's opinion. I notice more and more that we have tons of people in this country who do not speak English. I heard on the news that Texas is now a minority majority state. Meaning that the majority of the Texas population are minorities. I don't have a problem with that at all, but it's that there's a considerable amount of these people who don't speak English. I work in a retail environment, and often have people in the store who don't speak English, therefore I can't help them much. All I get from them is "No speak English." I don't know about you guys, but if I moved to China, I'd learn to speak Chinese. If I was there on vacation for a week, I'd carry a translation book, but I wouldn't try to learn the language. But these people I have problems with have moved here permanently (or at least for a couple years) and refuse to learn to speak English. There were a couple guys talking Spanish to each other one day and I was with another employee of mine. He is caucasion, but speaks decent Spanish. They were making fun of us in Spanish, and you should have seen the looks on their faces when he turned around and said a few words in Spanish to let them know he understood what they were saying. Often, we'll have people come in (customers and employees) who are speaking English, but then when they want to speak so that you can't understand them, they start speaking in Spanish. I heard on the news recently that in California they are in the process of forcing hospitals to keep somebody on staff that speaks Spanish and other languages so that they can communicate with non-English speaking people when they come in and have an emergency. Many of the patients that come in are illegal immigrants (who the taxpayers pick up their medical bill, but that's a whole nother discussion). It's getting to the point to where people are FORCED to learn immigrants' languages. In school for years students have had to take French, German, or Spanish classes. Now, employers are being forced to have somebody on hand who is bilingual. I have a couple employees who speak Spanish, and it comes in handy. If I could speak Spanish, it would help my sales. But I don't want to. I refuse to f***ing conform and give in. I will not have my country invaded, my tax dollars used up by illegal immigrants, and then have to learn THEIR language. --END RANT How's everybody else feel?
