You Republicrook Senators and Congresspoots who want the Mexicans to speak English would do well to learn to speak a legitimate version of English yourselves. I understand the trashy, hillbilly, hick dialect that you (and Dubbya) speak but it's a long way from anything like Standard Midwestern Broadcasting English (The language of Walter Cronkite) or anything that any English teacher I ever had was trying to teach us morons.

Empires rise and fall.

In 1908, an archeologist found a flint spearhead in New Mexico and named it the Clovis Point and for a long time we thought the first AMERICANS came here about 12000 years ago. Then they found some more stuff in Chile and now we know the first AMERICANS were here at least 20,000 years ago"..probably a lot longer.

Incidentally, Canada and Mexico are both North AMERICA. The Americas were named for Americus Vespucci (an Italian fellow) and at first the name was only intended to refer to SOUTH America.

The old Confederate South got very rich and developed a very rich aristocracy because it had very cheap labor""slaves. My own great grandfather was one of the old a**hole plantation owners and I'M still getting the blame for his crap. I'd like to dig him up and shoot him.

The Spaniards sacked Mexico City in 1521, enslaved the Native AMERICANS and made them learn Spanish. The English established Jamestown in 1607. Three hundred years after the Spanish, the English got to the American Southwest (the Border States), and the languages spoken there were first, the NATIVE AMERICAN LANGUAGES (20-25000 years) and then Spanish (300 years)""..NOT English. These languages were there first, they are still here and they are NEVER going away. Get used to it Senator. It wouldn't hurt you to learn a little Navajo. Ya' ah' tee

Among many others, the Apaches still don't like us much and I don't blame them. We lied to them, broke all our treaties with them, stole from them, cheated them, took their land, murdered, raped and butchered them".hell, what's not to like about us. We's just good ol' boys, havin' fun.
