<quoted text>NO there will be a stop to the illegal influx of 3rd world mexicans,we are within a few years of having total border shutdown,an employment system that requiers citizenship verification,no more baby citizenship and citizenship requirement that you have to be able to read and speak english.Its coming.

You mexijoes are to ignorant of knowing how to keep your country from being the drug exporting capital of the world,you mexijoes are running as fast as you can AWAY from mexico.Its an invasion and our border control just needs to shot first and ask questions later,this is our county,our heritage our birthright and the door for you 3rd worlders is starting to close.
Why are you calling Mexico a 3rd World? Is Mexico another world or sonething?

I will tell you why you use the term 3rd world before you run to google trying to find the definition...

You heard this word on the news! Your mainstream media used this term and this is the only reason you even know this term!

Your mainstream media created this term as a way to convince Americans that their country is better anyone else 's country!

I am American and when I went a Latin American country named Brazil , i thought that the United Ststes was a 3rd World Country!

Look at the city of Detroit! Look at some neighborhoods in L.A.! That city is soo horrible, that they used to make movies about it!

I am thinking that at some time or another , a beautiful hispanic woman must have laughed at you when you asked her out !

Racist men in America date and marry the fattest women! Most of them are Fat and toothless!

Will you still think that when Hispanics are the majority in the US? They will be the majority in less than 40 years according to the Census Bureau.
Maybe Hispanics will pass a law making Spanish the official language of America. What will you do then?
what would you do if the usa went over and took over mexico and told all the mexicans to get the fu#ck out of mexico?

Well this is what happened in Palestine! Jews got over half of Palestine gave to them for free!
But now they are crossing the Israeli border and moving into West Bank!
Jews steal all of the water in the West Bank , They attack the indigenous Palestinian population , and steal their homes!

Jews even build. " Jewish Only " highways in West Bank that only Jews are allowed to travel on!

So Asian guy is mad that hispanics are moving to the United States and is terrible afraid that they will one day become the majority of the population, while supporting the same idea of Jews moving to West Bank Palestine and taking over Palestinian Lands!

What a hypocrite!

hey, genius. like I said and REPEAT, there are no palestinians. those people in the west bank and gaza are the same as those in jordan. they are ARABS.

if you want to talk about "indigenous", the jews have been there as long as the arabs. the bible AND the koran confirm this.

bottomline, the reality of it all is this... if you can take it from someone, and they can't stop you.. it's yours.

good luck in trying, MUSLIM.

While I see nothing wrong with the children having the ability to speak more than one language, speaking to her children only in Spanish was stupid. Thankfully, her husband had the foresight to speak to them in English, so that when they entered school, they would not be behind due to the language barrier. Using her kids to make a point, is actually not in the best interests of her kids. Actually who cares whether Spanish will survive or not, we live in a country where English is the prevalent language, and it would behoove parents to help their children get a solid understanding of it, as our schools are now pushing our kids further and further with tougher cirriculum standards. If they can't understand English from the get-go, they are going to be left behind, no matter what anybody has to say, that IS the reality.

you sound like a kid. one who doesn't know anything.

let me give you a history lesson, KID.

the palestinian arabs that live in the middle east now are not the same as the philistines who live like you said 2000 years ago.

a common misconception that even jimmy carter is guilty of.(but then, what did you expect from a peanut farmer?)

fact is.. the philistines who lived 2000 years ago don't exist anymore. they didn't even live in the 12th century.

study the history and you would know this, moron.

How did the original post "Can Spanish survive in the USA?" turn into a load of abuse about the Middle East?

Go and learn Spanish at http://fastspanish.net

and the the language will survive and you wont get confused and start abusing Muslims and Jews.

There's no need for anyone to be abusive. Learning another language is fun. Even more so for English speaking Americans. Learn a bit of Spanish and you can understand what your neighbor is saying behind your back! Give it a try: http://fastspanish.net has a great free trial.

They do have a look of surprise when one alerts them to the fact that what they said was understood! The gotcha moment can be very enjoyable.
