    Bob, perhaps you should go back to school yourself. There, you could learn a few things about what kind of people make up this country-and from where all around the world said people come. I would guarantee your heritage originates from outside of the US. Yet you feel you have a right to tell people to learn the language, and likely the only one, you know. Despicable! To top it off, you should know that the US does not actually even have a 'national language'. So, perhaps instead of posting derogatory comments on a post that was listed to help individuals, you could instead put your 'close-mindedness' aside and stop spewing B.S.! Maybe even take a Spanish class-or any other language for that matter!

    Thank you PT!
