Tweedle Dee and Dum, our two so-called Senators from North Carolina, are all a-twitter about their latest xenophobic masterpiece: declaring English to be the national language. Char-O has the story.
WASHINGTON - North Carolina's senators are supporting a measure that would make English the national language. Sen. Elizabeth Dole, a Republican from Salisbury, said making English the country's official language would eliminate government waste and "unite all Americans by providing a common form of communication."
Ah the smell of hypocrisy in the morning! Aren't Dull and Brrrr supposed to be solidly on the free-market bandwagon? Why not get the mean old government out of such nasty issues like deciding what language people should speak? Why not let the "market" determine what's the highest and best use of the people's resources? Why not let the "market" decide oui or non?
Current trends suggest that Caucasian will be a demographic minority by 2050. Why does this legislation bring to my mind the word apartheid?
What's your take?
