Good gawd. Would I ever love to see Americans say "Speak English or...".

haha. I have always said, if I moved to France, I doubt everyone there would change their spoken language just to please me. So why do we do it here in the US. Because there are now more Spanish speaking people, than the rest of us.........they are slowly taking back California, actually, not that slowly, something like 2500 come across a week, or is it a day. haha. We moved out of Southern California, because we could no longer speak the language.

So we moved to the South, and you know what, I still can't speak the language.....haha

I understand. We're getting quite the Mexican population in NV too.
