I never thought I would agree with you on anything but this time I do. Anytime you are in public in London, you are on camera. It's not the country, it's a sign of the times. It's happening more and more here.<quoted text>
I heard and read that. Several years ago I was on the dart team for our bar. One night, we played a team where the players were from England. We were having a discussion about their old country when I told them if I were to pick anywhere to visit outside of the US, it would be England, and I asked if they ever wanted to go back?
One guy shook his head and said no, he really didn't have the desire to go back. He said England isn't England anymore. It's not like you see on television. Years ago when he was growing up, England was a place you never wanted to leave.
Today in my very own country, I have to remove the phone from my face to hit number 1 or 2 to continue the recording in English. These illegals come here and insist part of this country is still there's. When they get here, they undercut the pay of American workers lowering our wages. Signs in stores are now bilingual. There was a story a few days ago about an umpire in a school baseball game in New Mexico. He demanded that players and coaches talk in English. He was berated by the coach of the team and other umpires. They plan on filing a complaint against him.
You want to come here to be an American, fine with me. But you adapt to us, not the other way around. Don't come here with the intention we are going to have to learn a different language just so we can communicate. Don't come here illegally and try to change our way of life.
I know how that English guy felt.
In Miami it's hard to get an English person to wait on you. In Publix they had to call the manager to talk to me because none of the checkout clerks spoke English.
They shouldn't be allowed to work in our country if they don't want to learn our language. As long as employers hire them, they have no incentive to learn English.
Speak English or go home.
