    Seriously? THIS is a violation of civil rights? That's what an
    attorney is claiming. What bullshit. I mean c'mon! I don't even have a
    problem with immigrants or whatever but if you want to be mayor of a
    US City, you have to be able to speak English.

    This would be what our ConservaRepubs call moonbattery (although I
    don't believe any Dems, ACLU or Liberal organizations are behind her
    on this one - she just hired a local lawyer). It's still whacky. :cuckoo:

    I hope this does go to the supreme court... and it backfires on their asses... and English is declared the official language of the USA!

    fuck them.

    Its getting to the point where most people in the South West speak Spanish as their primary language, not English.

    Did 'I' claim they were running for mayor? No, the OP did, and they were in error. I simply provided the link you requested to the story the OP was talking about. But by all means, whine. It amuses me.
