Bloviating Zeppelin: Stating The Obvious Regarding Diversity & Multi-Culturism

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Stating The Obvious Regarding Diversity & Multi-Culturism

Germany's Angela Merkel has the temerity and courage to state the obvious. Germany has "had it." A pull quote:

German Chancellor Angela Merkel: "lmmigrants should learn to speak German."

Meanwhile, back in the USSA:

In America if a politician says that, they are scorned and called racist!

We need someone that will stand. What we have now is a bunch of idiots bowing to PCness. Sickening.

Good for Merkel.

Bush: and THAT sir is the literal point. Yet, here is a NATIONAL LEADER having the guts to state the obvious -- a EUROPEAN national leader no less! So THAT is how FED UP they are with that process and mindset!

Tom: and too bad that our leadership learns NOTHING from history that has gone before it! Europe is going or has already gone down the exact same path that our current administration wants us to take! Mr Obama and his sniveling minions cannot see that their chosen path does not work and refuses to heed the history from Europe and other continents.

Bush: I'll go check my mail.

Did you know,

U.S. immigrants are making the transition to speaking English much more quickly than did past immigrants. Historically, this transition took three generations, with adult immigrants who often did not learn English, children who were bilingual in English and their parents' language, and a third generation that spoke English almost exclusively.

Today, however, more first- and second-generation Americans are becoming fluent in English. In a study that followed more than 5,200 second-generation immigrant children in the Miami and San Diego school systems, Rumbaut and Princeton University professor of sociology Alejandro Portes found that 99 percent spoke fluent English and less than one-third maintained fluency in their parents' tongues by age 17.7

You can read the study here

In my home state of Minnesota,

Did you know that there was a time when there were non-English speaking towns in Minnesota that had non-English schools and newspapers? Would it surprise you to learn that in 1890 election instructions in Minnesota were in nine languages? The current uproar over English-only ordinances like the one recently passed by the city of Lino Lakes largely ignores Minnesota's (and the nation's) immigrant history.

So, who's history are you talking about?

Two leaders our President can learn from. The lady from Germany and the President of Chile.

Craig: the history as regards multiculturism in Europe. In my state, Fornicalia, the state goes OUT of its way to accommodate non-English-speaking people in its schools. If you've been to, say, downtown Fresno recently you'll see that it mimics that of a Mexican city -- thank goodness, still cleaner. Most billboards, signs, etc., are in Spanish. It's wonderful that children are accepting English at a faster rate if that is fact; the problem is that the numbers are skyrocketing and the enclaves of various immigrants are places, still, where little English is spoken.

It is a fact, inescapable, that a hosting country will go out of its way, when possible, to accommodate those who are willing to immerse and assimilate into both the language and the culture -- and, of course, when they are present in a legal fashion.

I'll submit that Minnesota is yet to be subsumed with Mexicans although your Muslim population is certainly rising.
