"La comunidad hispana tiene un aliado en Presidente Bush"
Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.
Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.
If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.
In yet another cheap, foolish, divisive, short-sighted plea for votes from El Presidente Bush, the U.S. Commerce Department has launched a website completely in Espanol.
The majority of Hispanic businesspeople probably read enough English to get by. How else can they fill out all those government forms? And, even if they don't read enough English, well, then they should if they want their businesses to succeed.
All this latest move does is send the message that you don't even need to learn English to live and work here. I don't see too many goverment web sites in Chinese, and they seem to make out OK. Millions of Italians, Germans, Poles, and other immigrant groups have managed to overcome the hurdle of learning English. Why should the current crop be any different?
How long before Bush and friends mandates that everything must be printed in both Spanish and English?
Quebec is looking closer every day.
(In No One Left to Lie to: The Triangulations of William Jefferson Clinton, Chris Hitchens talked about a poor, oppressed Hispanic beneficiary of this Hispanics-only pandering. He was also a multi-millionaire sugar grower. Anyone care to provide more info?)
