I thought this was a non-issue. Everyone commenting here speaks English and only a small minority in the entire US doesn't speak English.

I don't see the problem or the controversy.

It is largely the same as the debate to enforce driver's license and birth certificate checking at the voting ballots in Florida. The rednecks are gung-ho about forcing as many possible non-citizens from the state as possible, and the non-citizens are pushing for access to legal functions that they aren't entitled to. Everyone's just stepping on toes.

Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.

Its letter perfect awl the weigh

Very True!

The next time you hear a politician use the word "billion" casually think about whether you do, or don't, want that politician spending your tax money!!

A billion seconds ago, it was 1959.

A billion minutes ago, Jesus was alive.

A billion hours ago, our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.

And....

A billion dollars ago, was only 8 hours and 20 minutes at the rate Washington spends.

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, "What is politics?"

Dad says, "Well son, let me try to explain it this way:
I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me capitalism.
Your Mom, she's the administrator of the money, so we'll call her the Government. We're here to take care of your needs, so we'll call you the people.
The nanny, we'll consider her the Working Class.
And your baby brother, we'll call him the Future.
Now, think about that and see if that makes sense,"

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what dad had said.

Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parents' room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed. The next morning, the little boy says to his father, "Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now."

The father says, "Good son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about."

The little boy replies, "Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the Future is in deep poo."

Stimulus
Sometime this year, we taxpayers will again receive another 'Economic Stimulus' payment. This is indeed a very exciting program, and I'll explain it by using a Q & A format:

Q. What is an 'Economic Stimulus' payment ?
A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

Q.. Where will the government get this money ?
A. From taxpayers.

Q. So the government is giving me back my own money ?
A. Only a smidgen of it.

Q. What is the purpose of this payment ?
A. The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a
high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.

Q. But isn't that stimulating the economy of China ?
A. Shut up.

Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the U.S. economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:
* If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China or Sri Lanka .
* If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs.
* If you purchase a computer, it will go to India , Taiwan or China.
* If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico , Honduras and Guatemala
* If you buy an efficient car, it will go to Japan or Korea .
* If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan .
* If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.

Instead, keep the money in America by:
1) Spending it at yard sales, or
2) Going to ball games, or
3) Spending it on prostitutes, or
4) Beer or
5) Tattoos.
(These are the only American businesses still operating in the U.S.)

Conclusion:
Go to a ball game with a tattooed prostitute that you met at a yard sale and drink beer all day !

No need to thank me, I'm just glad I could be of help.

The thing is, the citizens are right to resist those who aren't supposed to be here.
This nation has become lax in protecting itself due to political goals.
That is why I believe every encumbent should be replace and term limits set in Congress.

The "people", or in your terms, rednecks, are pushing back against political correctness and goals that are contrary to the best interests of this nation.

So, my take is, someone has to stand up for this state and nation. It might as well be rednecks.

I am acutely aware of the native plight. I can't stand to look at Andrew Jackson on a $20 bill!

I am Cherokee with relatives in the Eastern and main Cherokee tribes.

The thing is, English is spoken as the common language in the US. Kiowa, Cherokee, Senaca...not. it is not a solid argument to keep 40 different languages in print and signage.
Tribes can speak what they want. US and states would save millions, maybe billions, in consolidating to the English language.

Indigenous peoples recognize the danger of allowing our borders to be open to anyone wanting to come in. They recognize the FACT that
CRIMINALS are crossing back in forth everyday and putting their families and communitites AT RISK because of the lack of closing our borders.

The FACT that Europeans came here we all know that and that HISTORY is just that HISTORY. U.S.A. has accomodated the claims and has paid to the indigenous people (5 civilized tribes and others)and continues to pay for special programs which aren't allowed for the decendents of the European's who came here first. Is it a perfect solution? The answer is NO but it is a solution which indigenous tribes reap the benefit of and out of each and every working person's paycheck.

Then Timmy, will you please point out where I said otherwise?

That is the impression your post left which would clearly be wrong.
