Ironic that these two could pass for twins.
With all this talk of illegal immigration (admittedly, a problem) I’d like to see more people take on an even bigger issue — the legal immgration system in Canada, the US, England, France, etc.
Just because someone gets their papers doesn’t mean they’re suddenly going to behave — or be any less of a nuisance. I agree with Rudy Giuliani. If you don’t know how to read, write and speak ENGLISH, then shove off. Go home, order some Hooked On Phonics tapes and try again later.
Your language and culture aren’t “beautiful”, they’re annoying, frankly.
When I go to McDonalds, as my best friend did this week, and order a “number 2” combo, I don’t want to hear “que?” or get a blank stare, even as I point exasperatingly at the menu board above your head.
And when I request “extra caesar dressing” for my salad, I don’t want that interpreted as “no dressing at all, but lots of ketchup”.
And is there anything more maddening than having people yelling at the movie screen in at least 5 or 6 different languages? Living in NYC, I can tell you that no, there isn’t. Trust.
