Wherever initiatives are undertaken to undermine the homogeneity and unity of this nation, you can almost always find many of the same faces and personalities behind these efforts.

Sorry, I know you guys think, because of your culture of entitlement, that whatever language you speak is what everyone else here ought to speak. Alas, there is no official language, and thus if you are in an area where it bothers you that others speak Spanish (the first European language spoken in the new world and in what is now the USA) then the solution is for you to learn Spanish, not for them to learn English.

The problem is yours, fix it yourself. If you want to understand what Spanish speakers are saying, then learn Spanish. It's the second most widely spoken language in your multi-lingual country, so you ought to learn it anyway. Stop being so entitled and expecting everyone else to conform to your lifestyle.

The first Americans spoke Spanish. So should you.
