Spanish is close enough to English and French that I can guess what it means usually.

@CoyoteKing: who? never heard of him

Pulitzer prize winner (fiction) and recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship (i.e., a "Genius" grant). Reasonably well-known in fiction circles and some fans of contemporary literature.

When Hispanic Elves swarmed Middle Earth, claiming Mordor as an ancestral homeland, the whole place went to poo. Now it`s nothing but drive-by Hobbit fatalities and those damned lo-rider dragons.

"It`s when I go into the DMV and can`t get assistance `cause none of the brochures or manuals are in english."

That says more about the general incompetence of the DMV than anything else.

I would guess that most people who read elvish don`t have a problem with Spanish.

It`s the Americans that can speak English, yet barely read English, that have the issues with it.

It`s not the use of spanish that makes people {old white guys} think they`re taking over. It`s when they insist on giving illegals drivers licenses. It`s when illegals can have a protest march and not get deported. It`s when I go into the DMV and can`t get assistance `cause none of the brochures or manuals are in english.

Elves aren`t real. Hispanics are. His argument is invalid.
