the answer is complicated, possbro. if you really want the benefit of my expert opinion, it would be my pleasure to craft a response...but you have to really want it.

wrong again, junior

"First of all, the United States has never had an “official language”—English, German or any other—and doesn't have one now. Nor was there any such vote in 1776. Congressional debate and a vote concerning German probably did take place in 1795, but dealt with translating US laws into German, and the proposal to publish laws in languages other than English was rejected a few months later."

Let's make this really simple for you, kid, since you're a simple kind of guy. Here is one of the requirements to become a US Citizen: Be able to read, write, and speak English and have knowledge and an understanding of U.S. history and government (civics).

Can you comprehend that, or should I explain further?

There is a big difference between what you're doing and what I'm doing here...you're mindlessly parroting some crap that you found by matching text strings, while i am applying critical reasoning to the process.

Furthermore, the printed word takes precedence over the electronic medium, and that's where i originally came across the story of the "official" language vote.
4 years ago
How about you try explaining how English isn't the "official" language of the United States of America when being able to read, write, and speak it is a criteria for citizenship?
4 years ago
We won't even go into what the vote in question actually entailed, because that would require a knowledge of the working of the Congress which you are unlikely to have...and, at any rate, you didn't ask the question in the first place.

Yep, and my mindless parroting of some crap that I found by matching text strings proves your application of critical reasoning to the process all wrong, chum.

The United States does not have a national official language; nevertheless, English (specifically American English) is the primary language used for legislation, regulations, executive orders, treaties, federal court rulings, and all other official pronouncements; although there are laws requiring documents such as ballots to be printed in multiple languages when there are large numbers of non-English speakers in an area.

As part of what has been called the English-only movement, some states have adopted legislation granting official status to English. As of April 2011, out of 50 states, 28 had established English as the official language, including Hawaii where English and Hawaiian are both official.

Linking someone else's research won't help you...I'd discuss the matter with the author of either of those pieces, but doing it with you would be like trying to teach a pig to play the piano.

In any event, refer to the maxim up there about the printed word taking precedence over the electronic. Any idiot can change either of those sites, but it takes some real scholarship to publish a book (which, even then, can be faked).

zekebro, how about you save your puerile and jejune for the next time you have to persuade some children at "your" job to obey whatever nonsensical rules they are violating in an effort to enjoy your mosquito farm, because logical fallacies are worthless.

I could point your various errors out to you, but I'll leave that to you as an exercise. Maybe you might even learn something (unlikely as that seems).

oops, i forgot to put "antics" after jejune.

i wasn't really sure of the best word there, but "antics" definitely describes your mealy-mouthed efforts here.

You're wrong tr.
4 years ago
You're constantly wrong, and then you try to say some bullshit about 'critical thinking' to back pedal out of it. Bottom line tr, is you're wrong. You're also fat. And you smell bad.
4 years ago
So, let me get this straight...if I can find an unimpeachable source that shows what you are doing is fallacious, what then?
4 years ago
because you do know that i can very easily find one of your very own comments where you alleged that i was doing exactly what you're doing now.

Now, if you'd like my "critical thought process" it's simply that I saw tr_willk saying some stupid bullshit again, and thought 'that can't be right.' I'm partially German immigrant, and I knew that sounded like a load of bullshit that some fatty with bologna breath would parrot in an attempt to sound knowledgeable. However, it simply makes no sense.

or i'm wrong that you, xzekiel, are a pathetic grade three thinker who occasionally is able to use grade two thought (sourced to someone else, of course) to try and feel superior?

[see william golding's "thinking as a hobby" for details]
4 years ago
or i'm wrong that various books and periodicals have made reference to a single vote preventing german becoming the "official" language of the usa at the end of the 18th century?

because what you have to realize about printing, junior, is that, unlike electronic media, less is often more. the resources don't exist to go into the detail that electronic media can, since it has no existence outside of the minds of men.

tr, answer me these, and I'm being 100% serious. Do you use baby powder or something to soak up all that neck grease? How many rolls of paper towels do you go through in a week? Have you ever considered selling it to a refining plant?
