I'm wondering what you thoughts are on the subject of multiple languages in the US. I, personally, think that the US should have 1 language, required to be spoken AND READ by all.

I wanted to find the actual sound clip of this but was only able to find a YouTube video that someone had made with the speech. This is our own beloved President Theodore Roosevelt back in 1907. Watch this and give it some thought.

Share your thoughts with me. Do you agree with me and ol' Teddy or do you believe otherwise?

I have to agree. I'm all for learning other languages. But if you live in the US you should speak "our" language. Does that sound bad. I mainly just would like to be able to understand what other people are saying.

It bothers me so bad being somewhere like the grocery store and somebody tries to speak to you in another language. Even if they are on vacation here, why would you want to go to a country where they don't speak your language?

Sometimes I just feel like going up to the person and saying "You are in America, we speak english here!"
