When you have state and city governments openly refusing to enforce federal laws (immigration), I don't want to be taxed more so we can all integrate better with people who shouldn't be there in the first place.For answers to board issues, read the Suggestion and News forum at the bottom of the main page.

I know the current system is broken but I don't think saying adding another language in itself is an issue. The issue is with our current system being broken.

The phrase "I believe" is necessarily non-propositional, and therefore alters the fundamental dynamics of a propositional statement - that is, propositional statements are declarative truthful statements - stating argument 'A' is either true or false - and 'I believe' denotes subjective interpretation; when you say "I believe" before making a propositional statement, you create a logical fallacy: You are stating a 'truth', but hiding behind an interpretative veil to avoid criticism.
The term 'ignorant' can also be applied to learned knowledge - or lack of the pursuit of learned knowledge - relative to a specific field. One could claim that prefacing necessarily propositional statements about the superiority of one idiom over another, without providing relevant information, would denote relative ignorance to the data involved with the opposing idiom.
So, yes, the author may be educated but that does not automatically preclude him from being ignorant.
And before you involve me B, I really don't care about this one.

In all honesty, I did not read the post in full, so that possible invalidity may be high or very low. I just thought I'd help you pookie.

I was not trying to say that at all. I was ribbing another poster for saying "wrong" and nothing more to quantify. Just being my usual arse.
I agree with your post regarding ignorant. I just happen to listen to the the author frequently on his radio program and know his positions come from anything but ignorance. Jay was assuming ignorance where I admit it was indeed at least a possibility, especially if you are unfamiliar with the author.
I was wondering when you were going to astound us with your eloquent erudition on the matter.
