Kurt Busch had strategy and luck on his side. Tony Stewart had neither. That's how Busch wound up ending his 29-race winless string Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in the rain-shortened Lenox Industrial ...

You aren't really racist (unless you have other problems with people of different races), just pretty rude and not very nice. There is no official language in the US. It is true that the majority speak English, but so far there has been no law passed that requires it to be spoken. I know of many people who were born and raised in the US that don't speak the language very well, where do you plan to send them? What about those people speaking the languages of the real natives to this country? That would be those speaking Cherokee or some other Native American language.
You don't have to learn someone else's language if you don't want, but don't fault others simply because they wanted to come here and forgot to ask your permision. If you can't accept that we live in a country that gives everyone the freedom to speak whatever language they like then maybe you should think about moving somewhere else. There's no place for intolerance in the US.
I agree with much of your post. Unless we're Native American we all came from another country whether it was us or our relatives before us. My Grandfather came here from Italy but I was born here. My husband has some Spanish speaking relatives & they can speak english but sometimes they choose not too, especially when they speak to eachother. It's just more comfortable for them. If we were out & someone had the nerve to come up to them & tell them they had to speak english that would be just awful & very rude and very humiliating for them & me, how sad that someone thinks they have the right to treat people that way.

I'm not rude, just truthful. Can you honestly say that it does not bother you if you are in a public place and are setting by someone who is speaking their native tongue. They could be talking about you, your kids, heck they could be making fun of your mother. I'm not the only one who interrupts them, I've seen alot of people go up and correct them. I've seen owners of establishments go and correct them. I'm not the only one. I have no problem for someone trying to get a better life here in the states, but they can be a bit more respectful. That's all I'm asking. I have a few customers that are not from here, but when I or my employees are around they show us respect by talking english. They know it is rude, b/c they know we do not understand them.

Call me anything you like, I do not have an issue problem. I'm just tired of being disrespected.

Oh and by the way I'm a very nice and caring person with a great sense of humor. Who loves God, my husband, my kids, my grandkids and my country. I'm just not afraid of speaking my peace.

DAAAAAAAMN!! Just like Matt, he sucs at lying, too! I can always tell when he is guilty, like the tape thing.
No, really, I never saw his tush until he crashed a few races ago. You can even ask Mindy over on the Mindy thread. She and a few others bailed off the Tony board when they had trolls trying to get the girls to fight with each other, so ha, Mindy started her own thread. Anyway, Matty wrecked and I was typing, "Matt, oh my honey, are you al.....HEY, he has a nice butt!! I never noticed that before!"
This was right after he crashed and Mindy posts, "Only Dill would think of something like that at a time like this!!"
Well, the moon was in full view, I mean...!
I am bailing out of here, goodnight my friend!! Tons of hugs!!!

Dill, you can like Matts butt if you want to, but If I thought it was too nice, they would class me in the Benito category. By the way, what's being a banker got to do with Matts butt?

Yes, I truly do not care if someone is speaking their own language & no I do not feel that I have the right to interupt them & tell them not too. I can't believe people actually do that. I guess we will have to agree to disagree on this one & move on because I do think you are a nice person but we obviously have very different opinions about this topic. I don't care if I'm sitting in a restaurant or whatever & someone near me is speaking to the people they are with in their own language. It's none of my business what they are talking about. I do not assume they are talking about me or my family, etc. I'm not nearly that paranoid & I guess my self esteem is high enough that even if they were, what do I care. My husband belongs to a golf club & we have quite a few Korean members. They all speak English but choose to speak their language to eachother & it doesn't bother me at all. Now if they were actually pointing at me & talking their language & laughing or doing anything rude like that then yeah that would probably piss me off and then I would say something but its never happened & so it doesn't bother me. That can happen even when people speak English. Whispering & pointing or whatever. Besides, the way things are in this country no one has to learn to speak English these days... Call anywhere & the answering device will give you options for different languages etc. My cousin's son goes to public school & the communications from the school come home in English on one side & Spanish on the back. They don't learn because they really don't have to these days. Whether we agree with that or not, it's the way it is. Anyway, have a nice Holiday weekend.

What does a being a banker have to do with Matty's butt? Well, it was a great day, I was "borrowing" money using a chocolate bunny gun left over from Easter and I was just about to leave the bank, when Matt Kenseth walked in wearing tight jeans. As I was leaving, I turned my head to get a good look at that butt and I hit the door and knocked myself out.

You know, it is not easy leaving a hospital when they do not want you to!!

If you're listening in on other people's conversations then you're definitely being rude. Why would I care what the people next to me in a restuarant are talking about or what they think of my mother? Are you also bothered when they speak too softly so you can't hear them? The world doesn't revolve around you, and in general if you aren't famous then other people probably aren't talking about you unless you're doing something stupid. In general others don't even notice you in more than a passing way.

Needless to say someone else got to eat the chocolate and you got the shaft. Thats what you get for gawking around when there's business to tend to!

HAHAHA!!!!! It has been quite a day, hasn't? Let's see if Nascar Now tells us anything about all the rumors that have been on the boards today.

It isn't just us. I went over to the Sadler board and they are killing each other over there, too.

Everybody has their own drama.

I think the heat and price of gas has got everyone at each others throat. I just want to go down to the Rooster and cry "More whiskey" then I'd be happy. What a picture, me Mikey and old Benito slugging them down at the Rooster. If old Robby would sell weenies by the side of the lake, it would be a perfect world. Is that true drama or what?

You sure could, three guys should always have a chic with them when they are slugging them down at the Rooster. We always need someone of the opposite sex with us to make us feel macho and laugh at our stupid jokes and such. Later!

Joe before you hang me read post 394 on Tony dating Chrissie. Then, just maybe, you will understand why I freak out when I hear someone with a heavy accent or speaking in a language other than English. Especially when it is spoken directly behind me. After you read and everyone else reads this I really think you all will understand why it bothers me so much.

Help me, where is this post?

I live in Miami. It used to be 99% Spanish and I was told to learn it. Now, the next generation speaks English just fine.

I speak pretty darn good Spanglish, if I may say so.

Tony dating Chrisse, are we talking Chrissie Wallace? Like, too young for Tony.

Tony wants to raise one just the way he likes them. Be interesting to see how that is.
