    "A Man That Can Speak Two Languages Is Blessed. A Nation That Has To Speak Two Languages Is Cursed"
    America's Socialists, including the Communist currently residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Av, would like nothing better than a replay of the Biblical story of the Tower Of Babel in America. So far, they've managed to build up a fairly good first couple of chapters, but that GD State of Arizona, from its Governor on down keep tossing up barricades, throwing burning tires in their way, and mining the streets in front of them.

    "The Arizona Supreme Court on Friday upheld a state law that requires elected officials to be able to read, write and speak the English language.

    The state’s top court, in affirming a lower court’s ruling, said the long-standing language requirement “manifests a legitimate concern that those who hold elective office be minimally proficient in English in order to conduct the duties of their office without the aid of an interpreter.”

    The court rejected an argument that a lower court’s interpretation of the law violates the right to participate in government, with the high court holding that there is no constitutional right to seek office. The state law requiring English proficiency as a qualification for public office has existed since before statehood, the opinion said.

    “Such a requirement helps ensure that the public officer will in fact be able to understand and perform the functions of the office, including communications with English-speaking constituents and the public,” Justice Robert Brutinel wrote in the opinion."

    well good for Arizona, now we can speak our minds in any language we like ansstupid people from Arizona will never know what we are saying.
    but then again, from what I have seen from the lazy white man is, if you can't beat them or join them,just outlaw them.
