Meaning we should go after the Congressmen who want to divide this country by taking the pointless and divisive action of declaring English to be the official language of the country, right?

Maybe they want to be president of the entire country, not just a select segment.

You'd think Congress might just possibly have a few more important things to do? No hay tiempo para esta estupidéz.

I am unsure what does declaring English to be the Official Language actually mean. Is it just handwaving?

Oh, and do these silly sods actually mean English? As in colour, neighbour, grey, and bloody lovely?

Kaa

I think its called "demagoguery," which is a highfalutin term for "rabble-rousing." It doesn't speak well of you if it roused you.

Why is it important to make "English" the official language......the mere fact these weenies would spend the time discussing such a trivial pursuit is upsetting when there are hundreds of more important topics that they could be could be addressing.....

Trivial enough that we'd ought to ask what witless wonder introduced this nonsense and which pandering poobahs voted for it.

Good. There might end up being less corruption of the English language now.

Hilary, ..."You go girl," said Oprah.

"He played tuff, he played with smarts from the get go."

I'm still trying to figure out what this actually means, which was said by a hillbilly football commentator.

"... from the get go." ???

Trivial is in the eyes of the beholder.

A great many people who do not live in the US see the wisdom of speaking (American) English. Perhaps the thinking is that Americans who speak English would gain an advantage.

Those of us who speak english have much the same problem..

The theatre of the absurd, or colour prejudice?

Don't ya think that the guys who vote against this are hardly the ones responsible for bringing it to the floor in the first place.

The Laredo Lobby brought up the bill.
The official bread is not a loaf; it's a pan of cornbread, followed closely by tortillas. That's okay by me!
I'm waiting for a vote on the official religion.
