    This topic belongs under the "Politics" banner, because that's all this is............POLITICS and POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

    Why is it that 200 of my 700 cable channels are reserved for Spanish-speaking people?

    Did Time-Warner and Comcast lose track of what COUNTRY they are servicing with their cable TV products?

    This is the United States Of America. The overwhelming majority of LEGAL citizens of this country speak ENGLISH as their "main" language..........not Spanish, not French and not any other language.

    I find it OFFENSIVE that when I "channel surf" on my TV, I have to sift through 200+ Spanish-language or French-language channels.

    Call me "old-fashioned", but if you LIVE in the United States, either LEARN TO SPEAK ENGLISH, or accept the indignities of being limited in your abilities to communicate with the overwhelming majority of American citizens.

    If somebody wants to speak Spanish, French, Russian, Portugese, Italian, German, etc. in their everyday life, then MOVE TO THE COUNTRY WHERE THEY SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE!

    OK, bring it on. I'm waiting for the bedwetting leftists to call me a "bigot", a "racist", "intolerant", "diverse-challenged", and all of their other usual blather. You are confusing me with somebody who CARES about what you think.

    Have you talked about this with the people who bust into your home and force you to watch those Spanish-language channels?

    Why do you hate assimilation?

    Why do you believe that this country should bend over for people who refuse to learn the English language, and insist on the rest of us accommodating THEM?

    The next time I have to accommodate a non-English speaker will be the first time.

    What does that have to do with there being Spanish-language channels on your TV?
