Do we really need to make English our official language? I think we should strongly encourage our citizens to learn (and use) English, but is it really going to make any difference if we make it our official language? Who isn't going to know what language to use in official documents? Seriously, where's the common sense in our world?

If you are going to live hear speak English. If you can't go back to where you came from.

Can't you find one person to balance these liberal jokes at the U? Can't you find one person who will argue that this would be the best thing to help non-English speakers advance in our English-speaking society? Call me. I'll tell you. Tim knows where the American people are on this issue and it is not with you and a few quacks at the U.
