THISSUCKS and NOTYOURWAY, you both can't possibly be as stupid as you seem?
You teeth analogy immediately fails because you have NO control over your teeth. LL has COMPLETE control over the decision to spend for translations. That is the most idiotic statement I've seen posted in quite some time. THISSUCKS, you take the cake as the most ignorant conservative here on this Board.

And NOTYOURWAY, when you make a decision solely to discriminate. that's racism. There is NO finacial justification for it. You never even tried to argur that point cuz you knew you'd lose. Of course, a bigot like you can't see the obvious.

IT's NOT a language based ordinance, it IS plain and simple racism.
The excuse given was to save $$.
1. How much as LL spent so far?$0
2. How much will they spend in the future?$0 (Folks, they decide if they want to spend dollars to translate. All they have to do is decide not to.)
Given that they've spent $0 on this in the past and will spend $0 on it in the future, it has nothing to do with money. It's about race!
Which race?

Where is English mandated in the US Constitution? Why is it the government's role to restrict people's freedom to use the language of their choice? Wave that flag more, racists.
Well Fred there was a time in the State of Minnesota when it was not allowed for people to speak in public in anything but English. Was this countries constitution written in Spanish? German perhaps? WTF?

Chinga tu madre ! This means I agree with you in Spanish!
I am guessing with 50 Million Latinos, you can't go very far without hearing Spanish but think of it this way, I can't go very far withour hearing English. Maybe we should deport all these people to England.
Take your madre and you go home. Learn a little history before you go and cuss the people that founded a nation for ALL people to live free. YOU are suppose to assimalate when you come here.

They never said it was the OFFICIAL language DA. Why don't you learn how to read before you go running your mouth. I think we should make it OUR (I'm refering to American's) offical language.
