When I lived in Fun City we would receive post cards telling us where our polling places were. They were printed in English, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, whatever that writing is that is used on the Indian sub-continent and several others that I can’t remember. Perhaps some present NYC FReeper can complete my list.

The above should be a criminal act.

Without making English the ‘official language’ the ONLY place a non English document should show up ‘officially’ is in and around Immigration Facilities, even International Airports.

The only message for non English speakers applying for unemployment, welfare, Social Security (and its various theft annexes)and voting needs, FREE lawyers is in saying “You can use our services when you learn our language”.

Why are instructions for Drivers Licenses given in multi languages?

If you can’t speak the language, go to your Consulate/Embassy for assistance etc etc etc

You know, like WE have to do when in Mexico, Japan, China, Russia etc etc - (at least in my day)the only establishments that ‘catered’ to MY way of speaking were the ones that were trying to get in my pockets.

I am sure that while in Japan, had I been on trial or whatever, the Japanese Govt would NOT have provided me with everything in English - to make it easier for me....

Those are the four languages, although they're trying to expand it.
