One of the largest aggravations of ALL TIME is making a telephone call
to anywhere & hearing the words "for Spanish - press TWO!" This is
something that irritates me deep down in the deepest core of my being;
because IT IS SO TOTALLY/ COMPLETELY WRONG & [email protected]
Not only do Spanish & English share the very same alphabet to begin
with, but the transition between these two languages is by far the easiest
out of ALL languages spoken in the entire world. Just stop and consider
the level of difficulty & effort, by comparison, when learning to speak,
read & write English when your original spoken language was Chinese
or Japanese for example!! Even immigrants from Germany, Poland &
Russia ALL eventually had to make the language adjustment (and made
it on their own as well) into speaking English. To see many Mexicans
& Hispanics DISRESPECT our immigration laws & then ALSO expect
to be coddled like babies so they don't even need to learn to speak
the prominent language of the land boggles my mind. I say they DO
need to learn to speak English just like every other immigrant
population has done since the beginning of this melting pot country.
And what does it SAY about our politicians - who not only allow; but
even encourage such blatant laziness and disrespect. Then these
women work as maids in California, and their wealthy clients (who
pay them cheaply) think the USA should give these poor border
jumpers Medicare?? No, I don't think this is fair to the rest of us as
American citizens. Nor to other cultural groups coming here.
They come on in, jump our borders, take jobs from needy Americans,
live wealthy here compared to Mexico, but learning to speak English
is just TOO much to do!! Everyone knows in high school & college
that the easiest language to learn for English speakers is Spanish.
What an insult this is to the myriad of other peoples who've migrated
to the USA from foreign lands; for us to essentially kiss the butts of
Hispanics - welcome them for illegally living here while they can't be
bothered to learn to speak the primary language spoken here.
