You never lived it, poser. You experienced the tourist version of it. I've learned several languages due to prior work. Most I didn't need to be fully proficient, just functional (senior tourist level, several trips to and over 3 months total in country time) a couple I had to be fluent.
You remind me of one of the locals we ran into at a gas station in the middle of Kansas back in the late 70's. My buddy and I were heading east in a Triumph TR-7 when we began to have problems. Someone off of the interstate directed us several miles around backroads to this little station with a 2 bay garage.
My buddy stayed at the car waiting for a mechanic and I walked in to get us something to drink. 2 old coots were sitting around inside and they finally spoke "what is that, I don't think I've ever seen one of them before" the other spoke up " yeah, yeah, I saw one in a magazine once"
You read about it or saw a glimpse of it and you assume you have lived and experienced it.
You're full of ASSumptions.
Obviously, your well-justified inferiority complex is working overtime.

Six years of French instruction, beginning with conversational French in fourth grade. Took an additional quarter in college (tested into French 203) to meet a basic requirement for 2 years college level instruction.
Many years ago. At this point, read better than I speak.
Also had a year of high school Spanish--a breeze after all those years of French irregular verbs.
As someone whose primary experience was spoken French, I am surprised that you used "vous" rather than the familiar "tu."
As you might imagine, living part time in LA I also speak some Spanish....

I sometimes find myself confusing the two languages when attempting to speak Spanish for the obvious reasons........

Ummm, I am also bothered by short bus references.
But, describing autistic children, as a group, as affectionate? I believe you are inventing again, my dear.
Downs and mentally handicapped are very affectionate. I was quite saddened that one of the little guys I worked with for over 3 years died of heart complications a few months back. His mom sent me a very nice card. Gonna miss that little booger. I loved working with that population. The parents though were a different story. I remember one couple who had 4 kids and all of them received special services. All of them Medicaid. 1 of the children had downs. They lost their children due to drug abuse. They only fought for custody of one of the children though. The one with downs. Why? Because he got a nice social security disability check. Made me want to puke.

Autistic children can be capable of being loving with lots of therapy, but it's still not the same as a normal functioning or mentally handicapped child. I always thought it would be horrible to have an autistic child. To love your child so much and them just not be able to show the same love back. It would be heartbreaking.

Ever work with any kids with Williams syndrome? They are always happy and affectionate. Quite amazing musicians usually too!

I learned to speak French while touring France skimmer, not in a classroom....I was there for about 8 months, before I moved to LA
My French may be rusty as that was a long time ago...(late 70s)
Yes I used a translator for spelling and to fill in the gaps of my memory.....but I lived it, how about you?
I learned mine in high school and college. I did get very good at it though when I spent a month on a medical missions trip to a country that spoke a lot of French. And of course spending a month touring France will help as well.

I still want to learn Spanish. It's becoming a necessity unfortunately. I came across a wreck a couple weeks ago as a first responder and neither party spoke very fluent English. Luckily one of the passengers did and could translate for me. It's hard to get an injured person with a possible neck injury to stay still when they don't speak English and they are freaked out and in pain.

No, early in this Zero violated Godwin's Law by calling me a Nazi lover. That was while he was praising communists and Stalin.
They've all jumped the shark, so to speak, they voted for the liberal Republican and it just burns them that I voted for the Libertarian.
Obama was the problem, Romney wasn't the answer, he was even more liberal than Obama based on his governing policies.
Each and every one of these idiots can't perform simple math, if they could they would understand why Romney's 9-1=10 plan wouldn't work.
I guess they can't deal with the fact that other than elections and Topix, they have nothing in their lives.
I believe that all of them - with the exception of Enzyte Bob - made clear that the vote they were casting was not FOR Romney, but AGAINST the sitting Democrat. They have every right to go that direction as you did yours.

Well, I urge you also to claim minority status too. Hard to conceive that you are actually a minority now. you've worked enough years and paid enough taxes and you'll do a better job then most hap-hazzard thrown together minority owned outfits.
Only 9 months? I'm surprised it wasn't longer with the shape Kalifornia is in. I know doc's that have medicare reimbursements they've been waiting for 18 months. And as of January 1, their allowable reimbursement was cut 27%. Welcome to Obamacare.
The Medicare cuts were staved off another year. At the end of this year at the 11th hour, the cuts are expected to be 30%. And there is no apostrophe in the plural form of docs.

I appreciate your appreciation of your patients with various disabilities.

I just wish you were able to share without throwing in your sleazy views of their parents.

I was once witness to a car-bicycle accident--and also have enough first aid training to know the appropriate response of stabilizing the neck, calming and communicating to the victim not to move. Very difficult even when everyone speaks the same language. I was intensely grateful that the squad was there almost immediately and I could hand off.

Voting AGAINST a candidate is nothing more than a lazy cop-out. And an easy way to be led down the primrose path. There is, in reality, no such thing as voting against a candidate. One can only vote FOR an opposing candidate.

Recall the ease with which Kasich came to office by not being Strickland. And now we are stuck with him. Really woke a lot of folks up.

Elections have consequences, folks.

Absolutely incorrect.
One of only two candidates was going to become president --
just as for any tax levy, it will either pass or fail.

The voter's choice is always to vote for or against a political position.

Not so sure why the scenario is so hard for some folks to understand frankly......

A feel good "protest vote" in the last election was the equivalent of voting FOR the incumbent......
If any 3rd party would have had the slightest chance of winning it would have been a different story.

The lesser of 2 evils, nothing more nothing less........depending on your political bent it was open to interpretation...

In the case of candidates, the voter's choice is to vote for one of the available candidates (or not to vote at all).

So were those of the Founders.
Most Americans were either Loyalists or neutral during the Revolution.
The percentage of Loyalists apparently varies. It requires inclusion of blacks and native Americans to get to a majority. Other estimates are as low as 15-20%.

Another interesting bit about the factions:

Loyalists were generally associated with Anglicanism, whereas Patriots were mainly non-Christian non-judgmental sects e.g. Deist and a loose form of Presbyterianism the hard core by which the rebellion was sustained.

Loyalists were considered better-educated than the average Patriot, hence relatively wealthier; but loyalty was not only the preserve of the wealthy as many Loyalists were of humble means, particularly away from centers of population e.g. New York's Mohawk Valley and between the coastal areas of Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and the western frontier.

And by the way, I believe that the issue that Kosmic is raising has to do with folks who claim not to be Republican (calling themselves Independent) who vote nothing but a straight Republican ticket.

I did not support Kasich in 2010, he was a gun banner in Congress, Strickland gave us Castle Law.
Kasich has proven he has changed, and the unemployment rate is full point below the national average.
We are eating the lunch of Illinois, hats off to Kasich, re-election next year, and the White House in 2016
If Kasich decides to throw his hat in the ring for 2016 I really look forward to the Republican debates.

Presidential elections offer the opportunity to change the leadership.
Currently in this nation, a vote for any party other than GOP/Dem accomplishes nothing.
Kosmik is free to support the status quo through his Libertarian vote.
Other Americans sought real, possible change of leadership.

Wish the p#ssy would stop crying about it.
