But Why Don’t They Figure This in Washington?

by Ryan on June 10, 2006

in Politics

File this one under “no ****.” As Washington is again demonstrating its disconnect from Main Street, a Rasmussen poll finds that 85% of Americans surveyed support English as the official language of the USA.

The benefits would be numerous if English was made our official language. Here a just a few:

  • all ballots would be printed in one language, saving millions of dollars nationwide.
  • all government documents would only be printed in one language, saving more millions of dollars nationwide.
  • ESL classes for adults and children would increase substantially, spurring economic stimulation in that sector.
  • Immigrants would feel a closer connection to America if they had to work to achieve a goal of learning the language, which also opens up all the opportunities America has to offer.
  • The assimiliation process would be faster; and as we sometimes see in Europe, assimilitation is crucial for national security nowadays.

Yet, somehow the government misses all of this, blinded most assuredly by the eminence of the Politically Correct gods.

While probably not reading the polls, Geno’s Steaks (The BEST Cheesesteaks in Philly) owner Joseph Vento came out on the majority side, adopting an English Only Ordering Policy . It turns out this new policy has already ruffled a few feathers in The City of Brotherly Love. I wonder how long it will take for the libs to challenge this in court and waste even more of their (the court’s) time.

While I’m happy that Geno’s came out on the majority side, I do have to disagree with your assessment. Pat’s definately has the best cheestakes in Philly..

I can’t wait to form my own opinion aftyer trying both. I don’t doubt that both are better than anything I’ve ever had in my former state.

Not yet at court, but now Geno’s Steaks is apparently being probed by some Philly Civil Rights group…now we know why the courts are so overworked…because liberal hack groups like this outfit are taking up precious room on dockets, making courts waste their time on cases such as this.

On another note, I will provide the link to Pat’s so that you can all decide for yourselves who has the best Philly Cheesesteak.

I can’t resist… Rush commented on the whole cheesesteak brou-ha-ha and reminded us how John Kerry (you know…he served in Vietnam) eats a cheesesteak…almost as funny as Kerry doing his sperm impression and Dukakis doing his soldier impersonation .
