    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    @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.

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