Answer And New ?

I think the "studies" that say too much tv causes things such as ADHD or obesity are a crock of shit.

New Question: (link:WHDH News article ).

Do you think there should be a Spanish version of The National Anthem?

Oh, I can't wait to answer this one!

I think a national anthem in Spanish would be fantastic. In Spain! And Mexico and in other, you know, Spanish speaking countries.

No! And on top of that I don't think that schools already hard up for money to teach should have to spend extra to hire teachers who can speak spanish. I'm sorry if I wanted to go live in france I would learn to speak french. So if you want to come live in america you should learn to speak american.
If you come to this country and you don't speak the language it should be your responsibity to learn it.

I dunno...it's sort of fun watching them hurt their own cause like this. As long as it isn't official, all they're doing is making themselves look bad, kwim?

Which is a no.

Oh boy. I will probably get flamed for this, but here I go…I see absolutely nothing wrong with singing the national anthem in Spanish. The United States does not have an official national language. But we do have this wonderful right called Freedom of Speech…and I don’t believe it applies to only those who speak English. States like California, Arizona and New Mexico all started out as Spanish speaking states. Are these states less “American” because of that?
Also, taking the topic a bit further…unless you are 100% Native American, you are a descendant of an immigrant. So, essentially, telling people who aren’t born in this country to go home would be telling our ancestors to go home. And then where would that leave us?
