Senate Votes Twice for English Language?!?!?!?

They vote once, and it passes 63-34 (which is a whole 'nother post) to make English America's National Language.

THEN - because someone is afraid it will make it tough for those that don't speak English so well to get - gasp - aid, they vote again. Saying with a vote of 58-39 that English is also America's "common and unifying language".

Ok. So, we speak English. Have for as long as I can remember. Pretty much. Used to be a pretty well known fact that if you were comin' to America you might want to learn to speak the language.

Now? Not so much. And my head is exploding that the Senate, the flippin' Senate, wasted MY MONEY and their time even voting on this shit.

Ohhhhhh there was a reason I haven't been blogging politics lately....oh yes there is. My blood pressure is rising over this one.

Let's just break it down here for one moment. Nice and easy.

What you speak in your home or community, up to you. I think it's fabulous if you are bi-lingual. We need to celebrate our cultures, our history. BUT DO NOT FORCE THE MAJORITY OF US TO CELEBRATE WITH YOU.

English. America. Learn it. Use it. Or leave.

Got that?

It just makes me lose faith in their ability to do anything IMPORTANT. *sigh*
