First, I have to admit. I am almost neutral on the whole election thing. If life has taught me anything, I might not always be right. And, that's ok. Really.
But. I have to consider the contender for the Democratic Nomination. Because, really, McCain could announce a cure for cancer and nobody (honestly) would care. Would they?
Obama campainged that all Americans should speak Spanish, and that rubs some people wrong.
And, I would agree with them. After all, should we not be encouraging Spanish speaking people to learn english?
But, in a knee jerk reaction, did I miss a subtle point? Did I miss something that, honestly, is a reality? When a local fast food establishment is announcing open jobs in Spanish, am I fooling myself that we don't need to be able to communicate in another language?
Fundamentally, I agree with him, but, I just don't think this needs to be a political issue.
This guy really intrigues me. I don't think that I can vote for him, but, if he gets elected, is that the worst thing that could happen?
So. Here is my joke. I made it up myself, and I am very proud of it. Tonight I was sitting in Patient's First with my Daughter watch Lou on CNN.
According to a poll, 83% of the polled said that English should be declared the official language of the United States.
The remaining 17% said "Que?"
Thank you. I am here all week. Tip your staff.
