Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...


It’s time that everyone in America speaks English. No exceptions. That’s the buzz phrase in many of the recent political campaigns around the country this past fall. In Alabama, a leading candidate for governor looks into the camera and says: “We speak English so if you cannot speak English or refuse to speak English, get out of Alabama and our country.” OK, so maybe government should only communicate in English. But what about your freedom of choice? Why should the government or anyone mess with your right to speak in any way you please? Humm! Take a look at a column I wrote several years back that is just as applicable today, and see if you agree. You can read it now by Clicking Here. And you will find the video below amusing and on target.
