    NOFX14 realizes that this is not real...

    and to the second part
    ... because there may be NEW immigrants who are more comfortable taking the test in their own language. Perhaps their ARE attempting to learn english but have not yet mastered it?!

    FoSchizle, there`s no official language in the USA, English is just the most common. It only makes complete sense to offer a test like the driver`s test in multiple languages. You don`t need to understand English to drive or read the signs, and people who don`t speak English still need to drive.

    I couldn`t imagine drawing a pumpkin pie everytime I would`ve used the pi symbol. I`d never finish a test. XD

    The pi symbol is of Greek origin, which is unsurprising. So he`s right when he said it isn`t American.

    I hoped this would be true because it would be funny, so I was pleased when I checked and found it is true:

    The word `pumpkin` can be traced back to Greek.

    Just like the symbol for pi.

    That amuses me.

    auburnjunky - You don`t need to know English to understand the signs. Most have pictures, but even if they don`t, learning a few words (which you would need to do to pass the test anyway) doesn`t mean knowing English. I know some words Japanese, French, Spanish, and Korean but I`m not fluent enough to take a full test in any of those languages, though I could easily learn words like "Hospital".

    Lillian, I know that English isn`t our "official" language because the idiots in Congress are too scared to make it official because they might lose votes. Either way, as governor, he has every prerogative to make English the official language there. If you`re going to live here, learn the freaking language. Yes, we`re a melting pot, but we aren`t going to learn a language just so we can speak to you in our own freaking country.

    Lol@ all the people going "IF YOU DON`T KNOW ENGLISH GO F--- YOURSELF!" (basically).
    It`s not like all immigrants here magically learn English in one day. I do not know of one single immigrant who had the mindset that Americans need to speak their language cause they didn`t think it was fair they needed to learn English. Most, if not all, immigrants who do not know English try very hard to learn the language as quickly as possible. And only way to learn a language quickly is to be part of the society that speaks it.

    Don`t judge them until you try moving into a foreign country where no one speaks your language..it`s hard.

    feiku,

    I have moved to another country and immediately began learning and using the language. Sadly, a growing number of immigrants to this country (primarily Hispanic, no other way to say it) are not learning the language because they don`t have to. I`m not saying they need to learn it in one day. Typically if you`re coming here legally you would have learned enough of the language to take a driving test anyways.

    I say hello and they say "Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh." and "Ummmmmmmmmmmmm." Then I say How are you? and they say "Uhhhhhhhhhhh." "Ummmmmmmmmmmmmm." Then I say Habla Engleis? (or however you spell it) and they say "Uhhhh no. no."

    Then I walk away.

    Hey Feiku, try moving to Saudi Arabia and see how far you get expecting the same treatment and allowances immigrants get here. Or just about any other country for that matter. My grand parents were immigrants, and they did two things before moving here. 1: had the entire family learn English (They`re French). 2: Did all the paperwork to come here legally. And sorry guy from Cracked.com up there, but the entire process took two months in the `30`s.

    @Angilion

    Lol people can`t just use the ok lets stop all this now attitude when they have what they want.

    Of course they can, and usually do, but that`s besides the point.

    The point I was making was that it is not *internally consistent* to say that something is both harmless immigration and that it is the same as invasion and conquest. It`s one or the other. It can`t be both.

    So, for example, when Reignblazer says "You know America, your ancestors were all immigrants /shocker", they are arguing that what is called immigration in the USA now is actually an attempt at conquest. If that isn`t what they meant, their argument is rubbish.
