America's Standard Language:
Anyone who has purchased an appliance or any item for that matter which includes manuals, assembly instructions and other documentation knows full well the frustration I write about here.
When and why has the English language lost its first place standing in our Country? Why are we catering to other ethnicity's in this way by substantially increasing costs and unnecessary nuisance to government, industry, and consumers? Due to the equipment needs of our own small business we have file drawers chock full of manuals (and purchase related documents) double in size in some cases due to the fact that industry must translate from english to other languages.
Who do you believe pays for all of this additional print and valuable time and materials? I would wager that the additional cost is passed on to us, the American consumer. Remember the days when life was more simple, naturally cost effective, and straight forward?
There was a time when a foreigner would come to this country, assimilate into our culture and learn our language... or not, depending upon their personal motivation. Folks were simply glad to get here and somehow I believe most did just fine over time. Life on our soil has clearly become needlessly complex, costly, and bureaucratic... and may I add...needlessly so.
Nothing wrong with helping our foreign neighbors, but where is the wisdom in constantly handing able bodied people the fish instead of teaching them to fish so they can fend for themselves?
Of course we want to be helpful and kind to our neighbors who come to our country... but where is the incentive when we insist that people have little to no skin in the game? Why can we not see that social welfare is not, and never has been the way to go? Is it due in large part to the progressive left securing and maintaining a huge voter base?
If I were President... every documented, law abiding foreigner who comes to this land will have access to evening classes, tutor's, mentors, translators, and various programs to help them along. All of this would be offered at nominal cost to the beneficiary in order to cover costs of performing such services. This should never be an entitlement on the American peoples dime! We and Industry have enough on our plate without having to pander to this kind of nonsense.
This is just another example of how government has far too much reach in our lives and this is all part of the leftist, socialist agenda, to cause us to be totally dependant upon government. Anyone who uses a telephone must also be prompted to chose english or "Hispaniola" etc. There is a pattern here of our government adding and / or allowing unnecessary complications and operational cost burdens to our lives that needlessly makes life more stressful, all without our consent.
These tactics which complicate our lives needlessly are all part of the "Big Brother" system taking one bite at a time with the ultimate goal in mind... the socialist goal of Government's nose being in nearly every aspect of our daily lives. Stay tuned to... "If I Were President"... Part 3
