I think I should opine on this one, I feel that tax paying citizens should not partake of Coca-Cola products.... Our National Anthem should be sang in American!!!! not those foreign languages.

We should have all the laws say English only! Don't get me started on the Navajo Language courses in the school district......... That was one of the main things the Property tax paying citizens of the area was mad about.... why should we pay for their language and culture classes. Where are the culture and language classes for my kids and grand kids.... just saying......

All going to H**l in a hand basket, taxation without representation. Someday soon the taxpayer will have their voice heard.

I'm glad we have some good elected officials in the county like Sen Scharer, County Commissioner Fortiner, Sherrif Christensen, CCSD board member Randy Manning, and County Treasurer Mark Duncan to protect the american san juan county taxpayer.

Just Saying......

Foreign languages? One of the featured vocalists was singing in a local native language, additionally abq was featured with spanish...and complaining about cultural education in sanjuan county? san juan county would be well served to attain a greater understanding of the navajo people and their culture. What aspects of your culture do you think your children..grandchildren might miss out on? Why are you complaining about something you can control directly?

"Should be sung" is correct--not sang. Sung is a past participle, to be used with helping verbs, such as had, has, have, be, etc.

BTW, what is "American"? Did the founding fathers speak "American" or traditional English (which you probably would have difficulty understanding)?

(I should begin by correcting your grammar, but there is so much, it would be boring. I'll pass.)

If I'm not mistaken (and I'm not), the Navajo language predates English, particularly in America. You would do well to learn it, but first, learn to speak YOUR first language (English) correctly.

When your ancestors forced their way into this land, also forcing their culture on its inhabitants, wasn't that enough? Why would you need your culture taught in your schools?(Of course, you could use a little help learning to be cultured, but that's not exactly the same.)

THe US National Anthem has only been sung in the Navajo (Dine) language since the 1950s!(The Golden Age of US American Industrial Manufacturing). Personally (IMO) it sounds tacky and for that reason it should be sung in English.

It was the NAVAJO language ESPECIALLY that HELPED win some US Island-battles during WWII for the United States which helped usher in the 1950 period US Global domination.

Navajo has no excuse - nor no reason NOT speak (nor NOT to sing) English only!

NOTE: YOUR in "Amar'ca" not England! So the term more appropriately is "American Only" not "English Only".

America is a melting pot, with multiple ethnicities and languages. English is the acquired official language in 28 of the 50 states. Hawaiian is the official language of Hawaii, so if you visit there, would you be compelled to speak the language?

"American" language could include many, but the settlers brought with them the King's English, which has experienced many alterations over time to become something not very similar to the original form. That is due to the diversity of America's population. We no longer speak that thar King's English.

To request "American only" be spoken explains nothing. American is always spoken in America, regardless, because American citizens speak various languages.

At one time, English was the universal language (worldwide). Not sure that is still true.

Oh, yeah, and many of our founding fathers spoke other languages aside from English. Ben Franklin spoke fluent French, for example. And the version of English the pilgrims spoke wouldn't even be recognizable to you.

So I suspect you're going to head down to Lousiana and tell everyone there to stop speaking French. Maybe you could head to Pennsylvania and then Holland, Michigan and complain about them speaking Dutch, and then bop across the state to Frankenmuth to complain about all that German.

Or you could stop being a xenophobic wuss and grow the hell up.

The founding colonists killed the pre-existing Native Americans, who most certainly did not speak English. Of course, the "founding colonists" were preceded by Spanish and French speakers in other parts of the country. Most of the workforce that built the transcontinental railroad that connected the eastern and western parts of the country (a fundamental element) were Chinese. You can refer to Nix_Nightbird for languages spoken contemporarily, including the Chinese speaking communities in San Francisco and New York, and the large portion of Spanish-speakers in the country.
What you ask is for people to give up their culture, their background, their roots. Their language is a part of what is home to them. They are not speaking to you, and, I'm sure if you attempted to communicate with them, they would not deliberately confuse you with a language foreign to you. You assume that assimilation is the answer, but what you mean by assimilation is white-washing. You have expressed a desire for everyone to acclimate to your side, while not being willing to accept their differences as normative and beautiful.
Coca-Cola is an international company. They do business in every language they presented in their ad. They understand that America is multi-cultural and quickly becoming more so

That you are both illiterate and unpatriotic! Your spelling and punctuation speak volumes about your education. The fact that you consider "America The Beautiful" to be our National Anthem shows your lack of patriotism. BTW, if you had merely stated that this American song should be sung ONLY in English, I would strongly agree!

I think the saying "ye reap what you Sow" as in planting crops, and later harvesting. Now as you said "sew" which has a connotation to sewing

Your command of the english language is staggering at the least, and not in a good way, but then again you have given us other great examples such as this one.

I just love the mental imagery of this one.

As for your list of political buddies and name dropping. Yes they are just as nuts as you are. Starting with your Kirtland buddies Randy Manning, and Mark Duncan.

Carry on tea-bagging.

While Whammer is deluded in thinking that a civilization's people should not be allowed to speak their own language and their own culture, he is right about having a common language that all in that civilization understand.

In order to be a Union, a people must have a common language so that they can communicate. If they don't, they can't fully integrate with the larger society.

They will isolate themselves in enclaves and communities within communities. This breeds distrust by the majority. If you can't understand the other guy, not only can you not work out your problems, how do you even know which side he's on?

The majority will pass more and more laws that alienate and disenfranchise the minority.(i.e. driver's licenses, voting, and immigration laws)

The whole process is called "Balkanization." It leads directly to hatred, war, and genocide.(See: Bosnia-Herzogovina)

It's dangerous for people to refuse to integrate into a larger society,(Some third generation Hispanic Americans in L.A. still don't speak English) but that process doesn't mean you have to give up your own culture, heritage and language.

Hey Saint,

John Stewart on the daily show pretty much shreds your addition to this debate started by Jammer.

http://on.cc.com/1nZY4U7

And usually those who speak the loudest like whammer jammer in this case really do not have the most pure intentions on why they are saying English only. Usually they are doing the balkanization or tribalization themselves, by trying to segregate themselves off in their little enclave.
