You have many illegal friends...Your opinion is in the very minority for obvious reasons.English is the official language of America has been since 1776 what language was the constitution written in?So why would we want any other language on ballots?Also if you have a division in language you can not understand the majority and they can not understand you.I will never hire a worker that cant understand what I say to them.You are the racist one.I have never went to another country and tried to get them to start speaking my language or write in English so I can understand...

As an ignorant outsider, I just have to ask. Does western Oklahoma have a problem with people who don' speaka da' English? Do you have to pass laws to keep them from taking over your town? Seems you have endured far worse and I'd love to visit some time, but this sort of creeps me out.
Ya as it does most schmucks..Schmucks have a hard time understanding that we should not be writing the voting ballots in Spanish,Chinese,Russian or any other language. ONLY English as the Constitution,the bill of rights,and everything else that involves America. A divide in language is a divide in the country....

How about should we start having beers with the folks that have killed innocent people driving drunk...or maybe we should just start letting child molesters out of jail because we are infringing on there rights....Liberal Thinking Philosophy

Wrong Dooshbag - many countries have multiple languages, this one included. Always did, does now, always will.
Just cuz you are too much of a moron to learn another tongue, don't force your ignorance on the rest of us.

Dooshbag? Correct spelling douchebag
cuz? Correct spelling because

No one is saying you can't learn however many languages you want to learn. What Oklahoma is saying is the State of Oklahoma does "official business" using the English language. Common sense to make all official print in one language, more cost effective that way! For someone who tries to portray themselves as intellectually superior....

Guess you're a "work" in progress!

Having an official language has its benefits. Still, the Steam Sale gets more attention because it makes more of a difference.

sorry Melissa, but Dooshbag is a new slang spelling, get with it, I dont think Oklahoma is that far out of it.

Douchebag is a femine product
Dooshbag is a moron, jerk, etc

English is a continually changing and evolving language, Words change meanings, gain secondary or slang meanings, change context and spelling all the time - look at: gay, queer, G-sring, thong, intimate, dumb.

And now with Texting and text speak, words are DEFINITELY changing spelling.

so let me reiterate
a Douchebag is a feminine hygiene product
or an obnoxious jerkoff

a Dooshbag can ALSO be an obnoxious jerkoff.

are you saying Colour, Theatre, Grey, Humour, Advise, Catalogue, Likeable, are not correct because you are unfamiliar with those spellings of homonyms?

Is Aeroplane wrong? no
Moustache? no
Cheque? no
Pyjama? no
Gaol? no

Marking the transition of language doesn't account for the unofficial – and individual – misspelling of words and rearranging of syntax. If I speak pidgin, it's an official dialect. If I type dooshbag, then I'm a nine-year-old on the internet. Is it any more proper for me to drop into l337sp33k original? That's pretty well accepted. Jxx7 xxcxczx m3 144l3 I appr0pri8te.

Especially when attempting to represent yourself in a respectable manner, please do everybody a courtesy and employ a proper combination of spelling and grammar for a public forum.

I think everyone should know english to meander about in the streets but they will never ALL know english..plus it creates jobs for translators so give up this stupid thread, there is no winner ..........

Tell you what, change all language to Russian now on every thing you see. Set your language on your cell phone, tv, gps, xbox, etc., leave it like that for about two days. Bet yall would have a fit cause it wasn't in English. Now go stick you head in Obamas ass and sew it in place, prepare to speak the official language.

Dear 3 Finger Probe,

Profanity is your forte.
You'd have to learn English
if it were required in Okieland.

Vinita deserves you.
